If you have watch any of Doug DeMuro’s videos, you probably know that he loves cars with quirks. One thing he really likes is when a car has no glove compartment. The reason for this is that car manufacturers get really creative.

The earliest cars aren’t as fast as the newer Boxsters, although they weren’t slow for their day. Multiple publications managed to launch an early 986 from 0-60 mph in 6 seconds flat and flat out it could hit a top speed of 149 mph.

Porsche makes some wonderful cars directly from the factory. Most people love these cars just as they are, but some of us want something a little more unique.

Cars are a large part of our lives. The automobile allows freedom, but cars can come in two flavors. They can either be boring or can add excitement to your life.

For many of us a car is a utilitarian machine. It’s all about getting from point a to point b while hauling our things. But, if you are thinking that way you may be missing something huge.
