My mind works in mysterious ways. Even to me. Today I asked myself the question, “If my dog was a car, what would he be?” Yes it’s a ridiculous question, but as a kid I had the remarkable ability to visually match a car to its driver. Hear me out. Occasionally my father and I […]
If you have ever woken up in a completely different – and by different, I mean much worse – condition than when you went to sleep due to no fault of your own, you’ll quickly come to the conclusion that life isn’t fair. That assessment isn’t entirely without merit. Suffering at one’s own hand with […]
It’s difficult to overstate the collective visual impact of all the bizarre design choices American Motors Corp. decided to incorporate on a single vehicle. By refining fashion faux pas to a fine art, AMC managed to create a very innovative, serviceable and to many, desirable automobile that was as expected on a showroom floor as […]
The male mind reels at the thought of actually seeing a real-life mermaid. Let’s put you in his deck shoes for a moment. You’re out on your boat, taking in the fresh breezes, maybe enjoying a beer or – ahem – five, diving off of the swim platform and enjoying the bracing cool water on […]
Picture yourself deep in the woods, overlooking a mountain lake. You’ve packed your pipe with the finest cherry tobacco, and you have stoked just enough heat in the wood stove to sand the rough edge off of the evening chill.

The mood was assuredly grim at GM’s Lansing Car Assembly plant as the sense of foreboding engulfed the workers when the last Oldsmobile Alero rolled off the line. Not only was it the last Alero, it was the last Oldsmobile made. Ever. It was the end of an era for the longest running American car […]
I can virtually guarantee that the last thing someone thinks of when you mention a “mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive sports car” is a car built by Toyota. Unless you happen to be an owner of said mid-engine, rear wheel drive sports car. Don’t get me wrong, Toyota is a great company, but it just never hung it’s […]
You are invited to join me, Jacster Trixter, as I highlight some of the most noteworthy classic, vintage, and modern analog cars I come across. Always authentic, more-or-less amusing, sometimes informative, and occasionally frightening, these are the leakings of my mind.

Why do people go to a jewelry store to buy gems? Because mining them is no small task. So with Analog Gems, think of me as your car jeweler and curator; and I don’t even take a cut. Why? Because I’m car crazy and want to share the love of these machines with my audience. (no hugs, bro.) Besides, I can’t do write-ups on all the amazing cars I find, but I can still shine the light on some great examples of privately owned ones that cross my path.
