Road & Track

THE GAME OF BUYING A CAR ONLINE • Car buying was simple once. There were nickel ads, face-to-face deals, and classifieds. The internet changed all that. Now we must sift through a minefield of insanity, sketchy sellers, and half-baked listings. But the thrill of the hunt remains, and we still love to roll the dice. Join us on a journey from Google search to bill of sale—with all the pitfalls along the way.

JONATHAN WARD’S CLASSIC AESTHETIC • The founder and CEO of Icon on design, character, and the nature of special.

DAILY KIT • The five objects Ward uses every day: simple tools that help him make his machines and that he can’t live without.

YOUR GUIDE TO SHADY DEALS • You only saw the cars. It was different behind the scenes.

THE PROBLEM WITH DRIVER RATINGS • Solving one problem while creating another.

BUT WAIT, IT GETS MORE COMPLEX • Although most professional sports-car series use the FIA driver ratings, they apply them in different ways.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO DRIVING IS GREAT. BUT WHY?

MISAPPROPRIATION OF FUNDS THE REVOLUTIONARY VARIABLE-COMPRESSION ENGINE MIGHT NOT BE THE HOLY GRAIL.

THE LONG RISE OF ROBERT WICKENS • HE STORMED INTO INDYCAR FROM EUROPE, THEN A CRASH NEARLY KILLED HIM. THE ONLY PLACE TO GO IS UP.

WHAT A LE MANS WINNER WANTS • WHEN JEFF SEGAL COULDN’T FIND THE RIGHT FERRARI, HE DUG INTO THE PARTS BIN TO MAKE HIS OWN.

LOVE TRACK DAYS, HATE ROOFS? PICK A CAR:

DODGE’S SECRET SUPERCAR • A MID-ENGINED VIPER SOUNDS LIKE A FEVER DREAM. EXCEPT IT NEARLY HAPPENED.

CLASS OF ’38 • HOW ONE YEAR AND ONE TINY REGION OF ITALY CHANGED CAR DESIGN FOREVER.
