It’s called the “Drift Tax”. If you are not familiar and have been living under a pile of unwashed laundry in the basement waiting for mom to call you upstairs for dinner, the so-called Drift Tax is a premium on cars that are popular amongst Tuners, i.e. performance enthusiasts and those who like to drift […]
RED! REDDDDD! What young man wouldn’t have fantasies about this car and the color of lipstick it is wearing? As soon as I saw it there were…uh…let’s just say “stirrings”. There is something about the over/under headlight configuration of the 1966/1967 coupes that just makes me say “wowza!”. Perhaps it was my father’s 1966 Ford […]
Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood had already been broadcast over American airwaves for a year and change when I was born. His calm, quiet demeanor and soothing voice carried his intention to open and nurture the hearts of children everywhere. I was one of them. You’d never know from his gentle, puppet-wielding, sweater-wearing nature that he donned […]
Because the “old” Spain wasn’t enough to contain the aspirations of those in charge of it, and there was a lot of gold to be had in the “New World”, there was a fairly significant motivation for the power hungry Habsburgs to relieve the native population of their new world (it wasn’t new to them, […]
I wake up in the morning thinking of cars. I go to sleep at night thinking of cars. I’m a bit car crazy. People ask me my favorite car, and I could rattle off a marque or two, but that would be somewhat disingenuous. The fact is, there are so many cars that are my […]
It never fails to crack me up to see a cutting edge high-performance supercar or hypercar puttering around the parking lots of shopping centers in my city. There’s a fair number of them, so I’m perpetually amused. Sorry guys, but nothing gets a full belly laugh out of me like seeing a bright green Lamborghini […]
I always extended beyond normal courtesy to a night janitor who worked at my college in my undergraduate years because his name was Lincoln. As a former Lincoln owner, I’ve always given deference whenever I encounter one on the road. It’s a thing I do, and I’m not sure how it started. But it was […]
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.
Read feature articles written by Jacster Trixter and selected submissions from our community. Like pulling into a small town diner, you never know what’s on special. So sit back and relax a while, pour yourself your favorite beverage, and joy informative, interesting, humorous, and tall tales (aka, B.S.) within.

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.
