For fans of ultra-rare GM electric cars from the late 80s and early 90s, this junkyard 1998 Chevy Sprint Electric Sport should be a rare treat.
That’s right, kids! You could (assuming that my math is right) drive more than 600 miles on just under 6 gallons of gasoline in Chevy’s new Silverado HD. Of course, there are asterisks all over a statement like that. Still, that statement is technically correct. So, let’s start explaining ourselves, shall we? Chevrolet introduced their […]
Switzer Performance builds some of the fastest, most powerful flex-fuel vehicles in the world from its “home base” in Oberlin, Ohio. We’ve covered a few of the cars here, before, but few are as “out there” as the radical Switzer Performance E1K R35 GTR Nissan. The E1K shown, above, has been one of the stars […]
According to the guys at Switzer Performance, the car you see here is (which I got to drive, briefly, back in October) represents an all-new idea. In its finished form, this is a 1350 HP hypercar that rockets to a top speed of 225 MPH and asks nothing more from the driver than to sit […]

This is in-car video of a Switzer Performance-built “Goliath” GTR. Fueled by E85 (a blend of 15% gasoline and 85% ethanol), this 4100 lb. AWD street missile proved itself as the all-out fastest Nissan GTR in the world last month at the Moscow Unlimited standing mile event, hitting 250 mph in just 22 seconds … […]
Earlier this month, the (relatively) new wife and I set off a road trip from Chicago to New England. “We’re leaf peeping!” she said, more than once. Along the way, we stopped off at Oberlin, Ohio and paid a visit to my friends at Switzer Performance. As one of the world’s premier tuning shops and […]
Things have come full circle for the Bug, with German company Karabag converting the classic people moving into an electric car.
Converting an old bus into a DIY RV is not a new idea. Nor is restoring an old, run-down RV with modern electronics and chic, modern-touches a new idea. Sometimes, though, someone takes an idea that’s been “out there” for a while and takes it to a whole new level. That’s just what the two […]
