Hi! I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way

They're Actually Building This Thing!

They’re Actually Building This Thing!

Remember the supercool Rezvani Beast we wrote about a couple weeks ago? It’s based on the Ariel Atom, looks like a spaceship, and pushes out a stupid-fast 500 hp from a 2.4-liter twin-turbo four-banger good for a zero to 60 time of a neck-snapping 2.7 seconds and enough lateral Gs to pull your brain out […]

Best Video Ever: Mercedes Beats Modified 350Z while Towing a Trailer

Karma can be a fickled heifer, as this smack-talkin’ Datsun owner just discovered. In his mind, the Nissan 350Z is the ultimate giant slayer. And a twin-turbo sedan from those idiots at AMG wouldn’t stand a chance against his Pep Boy Special! Riiiight… According to a member of MBWorld Forums, some guy with a “full […]

Six Funny and Ridiculous Street Signs

Six Funny and Ridiculous Street Signs

Funny comes in all shapes and sizes; just ask Danny DeVito and Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias. It’s in your TV shows, commercials, and hidden under every banana peel. Funny is everywhere except a mortician’s office and in legal paperwork. Even then, sometimes something funny can slip through the cracks and wind up on an official traffic […]

Ok file this under “Coolest DIY project ever.” Back in 2012, a couple guys had a crazy idea – “Hey, let’s build a car completely out of Legos.” While many of us have hotshot in-the-clouds ideas in the back of our heads, these guys were completely serious about it. And unlike most of us when […]
