Coolest used cars signs

Some car dealers have fancy signage and amazing waiting rooms. Those are the types of stores updated once every few years with LED TVs, magazine racks filled with iPads and waiting rooms that smell like morning lilies.

For every dealer that’s all hoity-toity, there is a store that’s a little rough around the edges. They’re the used car lots off the mile roads. They haven’t changed with the times, the televisions are analog and the waiting rooms smell like cigarettes and stale coffee.

My opulent trip to the 2011 Abu Dhabi Grandprix

Like most of my coworkers at Mojo Motors, I’m a car nut, though I might have the ‘itus a bit worse. You see I’ve been obsessed since I was a kid. For 7 years I ran an automotive performance shop, did a fair bit of racing (and crashing), and just generally got my hands dirty.

Like any good gear head, I like racing, but it’s always been more about the cars than the sport. I follow NASCAR, but from a technology standpoint it just doesn’t do it for me. Formula One however, is what really gets me going. The thing is, Formula One is also really, really boring.

That being said, I’ve been able to look past the boringness, lack of competition, and lack of action (passes in F1… not so frequent) because the cars are so damn cool. 1300lbs, 900 horsepower, carbon fiber construction, crazy aero – it’s got it all. I mean, the steering wheel alone would confuse an astronaut (see below for evidence). I’ve made the track to Montreal Canada numerous times to attend the Grand Prix du Canada and it’s always worth it. The sound of an F1 car alone is worth the price of admission.
