How To: Sweep Your Bride Away via Motorcycle

I knew my woman was a keeper when I suggested (in complete jest) that we ride away from our wedding on my Ducati, and she immediately said "yes". Now all I had to do was figure out how to pull it off.

Cars and Caffeine October Car Show

Quirky British rides made a strong showing at Auto Zone Hobbies weekly Cars and Caffeine meet this past Saturday. When most meets might boast a few MGB's or Healeys, AutoZone attracted a Jenson Interceptor, TVR, Morgan, 2 Aston Martins and a mini. Highlights after the jump.

Marketplace Feature: 1972 Citroen DS

Since I paid for a wedding only one month ago, I'm certain I don't have the $8500 asking price for this piece of rare (in Motown) french motoring. Sure there are lots of better reasons not go near a french car but they would likely have little effect. I mean, it looks respectable on the outside and runs so how bad could it be? I also appreciate the sellers honesty. When discussing the hydraulic system leaks he conditions every assurance of tight seals with the statement "for now". The price is probably a little high, but if the body is relatively rust free and mechanically sound at the moment, it could be worth making an offer. If you buy it, I want a ride.
