1970’s Style, unreliably packaged

By David "Roscoe" Fauver | May 6, 2019 |

If you are like us you appreciate vehicles that exhibit a perfect balance of quality, performance, reliability, comfort, and style. Here at Roscoe’s, we don’t have that vehicle. What we do have is this Ford Pinto, and for $750 this shining example of why so much of the ’70s was just bad and needs to…

By Tim Kondas | May 1, 2019 |

By Tim Kondas | April 22, 2019 |

Work has been continuing on the Z31, slowly but surely it’s coming along.

This whole project started a few not so short years ago with a relatively simple idea: “After years of wishy-washy feelings towards modifying this car or that, I decided that I may have more motivation and better results making the whole car, more or less… Goals: Handle and stop like a Vette, Look like a…

By Tim Kondas | April 5, 2019 |

So in my last post, I talked about how I fell in love with drifting in the not-so-distant past, and how I planned to start doing it myself. The crucial component is a car in which to drift, so here we are! The fine folks at Roscoe’s had this forlorn 1985 Nissan 300ZX in the…

The drift event through my eyes

By Darden | April 3, 2019 |

The drift event was spectacular. All age groups are invited. I saw people from babies to older people there. Of course, the babies had ear muffs and some other little ones had them as well.

Reefer Truck!

By David "Roscoe" Fauver | March 21, 2019 |

Reefer Truck! Sorry, not the fun kind. However, the back of this thing gets colder then your ex-wife making anything you put in the back last longer then it would in your trunk even on a sunny day.
