VINwiki Car Stories: Tom Park – Free BMWs, Porsches, and Euro Trips

Tom Park is a good friend of mine that has developed a great system of owning BMWs and Porsches for free while combining them with amazing trips to Europe to pick them up at the factory. Taking European delivery allows him to try out new tracks and learn the cars on different roads. I can’t […]

The M5 is for sale

I purchased this M5 is January of 2015 with 68,683 miles. In the fall of 2015, my brother needed a car and began driving it. Since then, he has taken a job overseas and no longer requires it so the car is for sale. I looked for months for a V10 M5 that I could […]

Updated List of Ed’s Car History

It has been a while since I made a list of the cars that I have owned. Here is an updated list. I like to keep this current so that if the cars sell to someone new they can contact me. Great to see how far they travel. 2007 Lamborghini LP640 Coupe – Grigio Telesto/Nero […]

A great opportunity to support a documentary of the history of transcontinental motorcycle records

The rider is an avid Cannonball historian and is producing a documentary about the history of crossing our great country by motorcycle. It should be a […]

Ed’s Car History: 2006 BMW M5

I have been putting about 1,000 miles per month on the Murcielago since I got it because I have been using it as a daily driver. The Cross Country CL55 still needs some surgery after the record drive so it has not been up for the accumulation of many miles. Wading through traffic with 631 […]

Historic New York to Los Angeles Record Cars

A very common discussion that comes up about the New York to Los Angeles cross country driving record is the choice of automobile. Since the first drive that Brock Yates made in his recon run in 1970, there have been some amazing cars as part of the Cannonball, US Express, and other spinoff events including […]

Caffeine & Octane: May 2013

It was a strangely weak turnout at this month’s extremely rainy Caffeine & Octane. There was only a handful of cars there but here are some pictures anyway! Looking forward to seeing everyone next time.

Caffeine & Octane: April 2013

It was a record day at Caffeine & Octane with our first day of good weather in months. The turnout was insane and the parking lot filled up early. It was great to see everyone. Here are some pictures.
