THE TRANSITION My 98 Daewoo Nubira, that rusty, crusty old car my middle school students and I transformed into a competent track rig four years ago, has finally passed from this mortal coil.

My car makes me tired an awful lot of the time.

Above that there’s the TT200 class for stronger diesels and naturally aspirated 4 bangers of larger displacement. I want […]
