About Us

The Daily Turismo staff is a collection of car enthusiasts, lunatics and wanna-be writers.  When we aren't slaving away at finding a pun for the name Cimarron, we are racing, buying, breaking, fixing, and sometimes selling cars.

We're always on the lookout for cheap, fun daily drivers and project cars. No big-bucks classics, over-restored trailer queens or million dollar prototype racers will be found on this site. We'd like to show that anyone with a steady job and a bit of mechanical aptitude can enjoy a unique, fun "daily turismo." There is no need to drive a 10-year old beige transportation appliance if you're a car nut on a budget!

Help, my wheel has fallen off and I can't get up!


  1. Why don't you have a daily email like BaT?

    1. Christopher,
      We do have a daily email - to get it enter your email address in the box on the right hand banner (just under the search box and above the blog archive feature).

  2. How do you guys feel about 944's, 1st gen. MR2's, Miata's, the like.

  3. I recommend that you feature the Alfa Romeo 164. I recently bought two of them on eBay for $3000 apiece (one stick, one auto). It's the best car I've ever driven. It's what the Italian highway patrol drove in the nineties. I think it's the most used car for the money. Not beautiful, but still attracts attention. It's the last Alfa sold in the US.
