Video: Black Shine Trim Restorer

A trimmed out vehicle makes a louder statement than one with neglected trim. Detailed trim just shows an additional level of attention to detail and signifies the owner really cares about his ride. So if your trim is off its game or you want to keep it on top we’d like to introduce you to Black Shine Trim Restorer.

Video: Slim LED Work Light

This wand-style COB LED features a thumbwheel on/off dial that offers variable intensity adjustment up to the light’s 410 lumens max output. The unit’s 3/8-inch thick lighting element is shaped like a blade so you can really maneuver it into cramped, tucked away, and otherwise inaccessible spaces.

Video: PFM Terry Weave Drying Towel

This towel is a Griot’s Garage exclusive. We searched for the most advanced microfiber weave we could find and, in the process, introduced a new kind of microfiber to the automotive industry. The innovation is the terry weave, more precisely the density and length of the loops used in the weave. A longer nap means more drying area.

Triple McLaren Fire-Up At Caffeine & Gasoline

Triple McLaren Fire-Up At Caffeine & Gasoline

The engines were piercingly loud, the cars undeniably historic. Our 2014 Caffeine & Gasoline cruise-in season went out with a bang… or make that an emphatic roar as we fired up 20 cylinders of McLaren racing glory. In total we conducted two rounds of fire-ups for crowds that were three to four people deep. It was intense.

The Stomach-Turningest Helmet Cam Video You’ll See Today

The Stomach-Turningest Helmet Cam Video You’ll See Today

Go-Pro’s little Hero camera has sparked a revolution in video for professional daredevils, amateur hoons, and everyone between. Everything looks faster, cooler, more dangerous in POV. While the YouTube comments suggest some disbelief, I happen to believe this knife-edge ridge ride video is real. Take a look and judge for yourself!

Riding Dirty: Global RallyCross Twin Peaks

Riding Dirty: Global RallyCross Twin Peaks

Seems we’ve developed something of a reputation; Griot’s Garage likes clean cars. Fair enough. But when we recently had the chance to see high-horsepower rally cars battling door-to-door in the dirt, there was no way we were going to miss it. Armed with cameras and a love of anything that rolls (or flies) on rubber, we headed to the races.

Some say heaven is a lot like this.

Some say heaven is a lot like this.

The E30 BMW M3 was a dominant force in late 1980’s racing. Winning more road races than any other in model history is quite a feat. Watch Patrick Snijers pilot this M3 in the Manx Rally. He is always close to the edge, but the car holds on. Videos like this make it easy to see why the E30 M3 was so great. Try to watch it just once… I dare you.

Porsche Speedster Gets a Lift

Porsche Speedster Gets a Lift

When Griot’s Garage President, Mark Greene, told me a generous customer was allowing us to showcase his 1957 Porsche Speedster, I was ecstatic. When he told me where he wanted the car displayed… I was floored. It’s not every day you see an automobile like this. And I bet you’ve never seen one hoisted 12 feet into the air with a forklift!

Admit it. You want this BMW E30 driving simulator.

Admit it. You want this BMW E30 driving simulator.

You know you’ve thought about it. You and a bunch of friends are lapping the Nürburgring in a Ford GT on the latest rendition of Gran Turismo or Forza and you think, “This would be so much cooler if I was sitting in a racing seat with a steering wheel, shifter, and pedals in front of me.” For my friends and I, this dream has become a reality.
