CAMcast: We Need Adult Supervision

by Michael Chandler

SEMA 2016 Thursday CAMautoMag-168

Can you make a 911 better by shoving an LSx in the back of it? What were the cars that Dave, Gavin, and I spent time wrenching on, are working on, and would like to turn into future projects?  And just where the hell is Pizza Dad?  All of those questions, and an actual reader email are in this week’s episode of the CAMcast!

The CAM Journal: RIP Mitsubishi Eclipse

by Trent

Talon Girl in Black Car
Break out the sad trombone, the day I’ve feared will come, is finally at hand. According to Edmunds Inside Line, the Eclipse will not survive past 2013. Some of you might scoff at that and say you don’t care, but no matter who you are, if you are an automotive enthusiast, the Eclipse, or a variant of it, has crossed your path before. (more…)

Auto Failure Winner: The Story

by Trent

As you recently found out, Kyle from Ohio won our auto failure contest, here is his story.

“The victim is a mildly modded 1991 Talon TSi AWD. One morning this winter I was heading down my driveway on my way to school. My driveway is 1/4 mile long and gravel. Some parts of the driveway dip down and like to hold water all winter, and anytime after rain. During the winter the water usually freezes over and makes going down it a breeze. As I was going down the driveway i came to the last ice puddle. When i got about half way through, the ice broke (I know it doesnt sound that bad). But when there are now 1/2” chunks of ice penitrataing your new front mount and ripping off the bottom of your front bumper it becomes a bigger deal. And that was only the beginning at the end of this water puddle there was a build up of ice. With my car being lowered it did not make it up it. Well i should refraise that, it didnt make it up it unharmed. The build up of ice got cought on the intercooler and ripped it off and then i procedeed to run it and the piping still connected to it over. I think it is safe to say i was late to school that morning. “

Fortunately Kyle got the car fixed up and it looks better than ever now. Thanks Kyle and all the others who submitted their story.
