Carbon Criminal: My Next Pickup, International MXT in ATX

Written by Ken Altes

This mammoth 2008 International MXT pickup makes me question whether the earth really needs me ton adopt a responsible, carbon neutral lifestyle.

Bigger than life at 10,000 lbs., a six liter diesel V8, an Allison auto transmission and 4×4.

Wondering what kind of business I could get into to justify this truck.  Also, why do I want to say, “My pickup is bigger than yours?” 2008 International MXT Pickup for sale Austin TX front 2008 International MXT Pickup for sale Austin Texas

When’s the last time you saw one of these? I’ll bet never. Only 1266 were made, most in 2009. Very handsome. Note the removable roof section, making it a targa really.

2002 Lotus Esprit at COTA Car Show

Written by Ken Altes

Incredibly desirable 2002 Lotus Esprit at recent show at Circuit of the Americas. This beauty is an under-appreciated supercar. Mid engine, aluminium 3.5 liter V8, weighs under 3000 lbs. Before the recent engine mods, the stock Esprit would reach 60 in 4.5 seconds, the 1/4 mile in 12.8 seconds, and 175 mph. The more I looked at it, the more I wanted it!img_5927 img_5928 img_5929
