I am an Asian American male in my mid twenties with a mild Ford Lightning obsession, more specifically the 2nd generation model, which was produced between 1999 and 2004. To quote the urban dictionary, the Lightning is “predominantly owned by rednecks and white trash.” I want to change this.
If you read my previous blog post, you know that I liked and bought cars for pretty stupid reasons. Nothing changes when it comes to the Lightning and here are three stupid reasons.
Sporty cars come in many shapes and sizes. Some are known to be fast, and look the part too. Many others are slightly pretentious and sport a spoiler here and diffuser there; perhaps a larger set of rims than the stock alloys while remaining mechanically identical to the non-sporty members of their lineup. And then there is a small group of cars which don’t appear to be out of the ordinary, yet can be faster than most cars this side of 911 Turbo. The simple truth is that a spoiler doesn’t make your car go any faster. In fact, unless you’re going much faster than is safe for your license, it isn’t doing anything at all aerodynamically either, so let’s not kid ourselves. Luckily, a few car manufacturer don’t want to kid with you either, and side step the marketing department to build proper performance hidden away in inconspicuous packages.
The Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) Camaro LTA Concept is like no Camaro on the road. It looks different…way different. It’s got a custom body built on the platform of a 2010 Camaro SS, a custom interior inspired by classic Trans Am muscle cars and custom 20″ wheels. It also rocks a 455-cubic-inch 655 horsepower engine.
The CCC Speedster might look geriatric, but it’s not. In fact, it’s like the exact opposite of the Vanna White who is waging a war on aging. But before getting too sidetracked, let’s look at the CCC Speedster built by California Custom Coach.
A couple of weeks ago, the Mojo Motors Blog expressed great pleasure in knowing silver was no longer the most popular car color in America. We’re going to eat our words for this post because we’ve got to hand it to the color silver. The “Frozen Silver” paint job on the 2012 BMW M3 Competition Edition is pretty. Rare too. Only forty of these M3 Coupes will be released to commemorate forty years of BMW’s M motorsport division.
At Mojo Motors, we sell used cars and there are some really great models to be had right now, like this Subaru Impreza or this Chevrolet Equinox. The thing is, there are other great cars we love, but can’t include in our listings because they’re still concepts or too brand-spanking new. That’s why we share these vehicles in our segment, “Cool used car of the future.” This week we are featuring the Chevrolet Camaro Intimidator.
