    I was looking for a list of “Adam’s Best used cars to Buy” I recall a podcast were he went through a bunch of cars that are relatively affordable and would be collectible in the coming years.

      Todd -

      We used to do Investment Cars of the week where we would pick a few. We haven’t done that for a while if that is what you are talking about. We don’t have a list, somewhere I have a bunch of them that we did but would have to look and find it.


      • David says:

        I heard the same Podcast a couple of months ago. If possible, please provide more info on the Investment Cars of the week recommendations.

      Why no 350/370z to finish out the Z-car collection? I thought I saw Adam driving a 350z w/ Stillen kit in his home improvement show?

  2. nick says:

    Did Ace by a new everyday car? BMW M Coupe I hope!

  3. nick says:

    I can spell. BUY is what I intended.

  4. Mark Bench says:

    Just cause I used to be a Supra/Celica guy an 84 Supra is actually a second generation supra.

    Other than that great stuff man!

  5. ohyabber says:

    Would love to see a more detailed bio on Ace’s collection.

    Before and after, modifications, purchase date, interior/engine shots, progress, etc.

  6. Hey Adam,

    I don’t hear you talk about your E30 M3. Do you ever get it out on the track? Lovely Cars. All of them.

    Keep up the great work.

    Did Adam buy the lease out on the S4? Just wondering because it’s still in bold.

    When you say “2011 Lexus LSF” there, do you mean he’s got the LFA or an IS-F? Ultra Rare Hyper Car vs. Overpriced Toyota Sedan?

    Mr Carolla.

    Hello.. my husband was just reading in Hot Rod magazine, you had a Datsun 2000 roadster. We also have one that we have been searching every where to get parts… we would like to know where to find them if you could be so kind to tell us .. We want to get it looking great like yours but however ours does need a little body work but runs great .
    Thanks for any help you can give us

    I know that modern car designers are limited by construction and use regulations, airflow, crash testing and pedestrian protection, to name a few, but this is so anonymous it could be anycar.
