WHAT’S IT LIKE TO DRIVE A 1980 FIAT 2000 SPIDER? YES. THAT FIAT SPIDER IS IN NEW JERSEY. NO. NEITHER OF THE GUYS WITH BEERS ARE ME. ONE IS MY BROTHER. THIS IS HIS CAR. SO, WHAT'S IT LIKE TO DRIVE?

YES. THAT FIAT SPIDER IS IN NEW JERSEY. NO. NEITHER OF THE GUYS WITH BEERS ARE ME. ONE IS MY BROTHER. THIS IS HIS CAR. SO, WHAT’S IT LIKE TO DRIVE? First, a bit of backstory. This car didn’t always bear a New Jersey license plate. It was actually my dad’s cousin’s car. He bought it new in 1980 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The decision to buy this car will go down as one of the dumbest choices ever made.   In...

How Much Car Can I Afford? How much do you need to make to RESPONSIBLY put that dream car in your driveway?

How much do you need to make to RESPONSIBLY put that dream car in your driveway? We all want a nice car. I mean, who doesn’t want a Rolls Royce or a BMW or a McLaren in their driveway? Hell, at about $35,000 a MINI Cooper John Cooper Works and Subaru WRX STI are lofty goals in their own rights. But, that begs the question, just how much car can you afford? Or, put another way, how much money do you need to make to buy that new BMW M4?...

Bell & Ross AeroGT For the First Time, a Watchmaker Makes a Car... and It's a Legit Concept Car. Meet the AeroGT.

For the First Time, a Watchmaker Makes a Car… and It’s a Legit Concept Car. Meet the AeroGT and BR 03-92 and BR 03-94 Watches that Go with It. AeroGT. Good name for a concept car but not a name you’d expect from a watchmaker. Actually, there’s nothing about watchmaker Bell & Ross’ AeroGT concept car that’s expected. Just let that sink in for a second… the concept car was created by Bell...

5 Worst Sounds Your Car Can Make The Sounds Your Car Makes Can Tell You a Lot about What's Going on Under the Hood.

The Sounds Your Car Makes Can Tell You a Lot about What’s Going on Under the Hood. Lately, I haven’t been writing much. But, the stuff I’ve been writing about has been about stuff that I’ve really, really liked. But, every once and a while, I like to write things that are actually useful. You may (or may not) remember my post on “How much is my car worth after an accident?” This is one of those...

Moto Koure MK I: Modern Watchmaking Meets Classic Racing Autstralian Micro-Brand Moto Koure Shows What Car-Inspired Watches Should Look Like.

Autstralian Micro-Brand Moto Koure Shows What Car-Inspired Watches Should Look Like with Their MK I. You don’t often think of Australia as a fertile ground for new watch brands, or for watches in general, come to think of it. Cars, yes. Watches, no. But, shiny new watchmaker, Moto Koure, is looking to change that. Oh, and did I mention their watches are inspired by 1960s and 1970s cars? Swoon. When I say that Justin Khoury founded...

2016 Cadillac CTS-V and ATS-V Track Test Review Taking to the Track with Cadillac's Two Big Dogs

Taking to the Track with Cadillac’s Two Big Dogs, the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V and 2016 Cadillac ATS-V. While Top Gear frequently refers (or should I say referred) to itself as a “poky little motoring show,” they did so with the utmost irony as they are, in fact, the yardstick by which all other motoring media are measured. TickTickVroom is in reality a poky little motoring blog. So, when we get invited to do something...

Apple Watch Review I miss my watches, and so do a lot of others, which may be troubling news for watchmakers.

I miss my watches, and so do a lot of others, which may be troubling news for watchmakers. It’s been a week since I got my 42mm Apple Watch in stainless steel with the Bright Blue Leather Loop strap. And, I figured it might not be a bad time for an Apple Watch Review. Over the past week, I’ve learned more than just a bit of fodder for an Apple Watch Review, I’ve realized that the Apple Watch (which I still think they...

2016 Jaguar F-Type R AWD Review: 550 HP of Surprise Road Test: I knew it would be good, but I never realized the baddest of the cats would be this fun.

The 2016 Jaguar F-Type R AWD has been on my gotta-drive-it radar for some time without much traction being made toward getting the keys to one. I’ve been lucky, and some car makers have given me some awesome time on the track and off with some pretty incredible cars. But, since TickTickVroom isn’t the biggest or most recognized of car sites, finagling the opportunity to be handed the keys to a 550 hp, six-figured sports...

1982 Lancia Zagato takes the place of the little red racer from Atari’s Pole Position I’m back. And, so is TickTickVroom.com. It’s been a while since my last post. I took a bit of time off from the site. But, now I’m back to hunting and pecking on my keyboard with a new take for TTV. This site has been a combo of news, reviews and editorial junk for the past few years. I’m not Autoblog, so why would you...
