Forza Horizon 5 Review – An (Almost) Perfect Game

Let's get one thing out of the way first: Forza Horizon 5 is a fantastic game. It's actually so fantastic, it had me reminiscing about the last racing game that had me feeling this way. After much thought, I remembered back to the year 2005 when I first played Need...

APR / Dinan Track Day

Wild Child – Michaels Bagged, Widebody Callaway C7 Corvette

It's not every day that we get to feature a Corvette. For the most part, it seems like Corvette enthusiasts tend to keep their vehicles on the stock side. At most, you'll see a couple modifications here or there. But there are some people like Michael Giaccone that...

The EV Movement: Part 2

Ben Battles wrote a killer article with optimistic happy thoughts in his EV coverage of SEMA 2021… and I'm gonna tell you why he’s wrong lol. This might get a tad political (generally speaking), but just remember, I didn’t do it… politics did.  The government needs to...

The AWD Civic is FINALLY showing signs of life. Since we have swapped over the twin cam B-Series on the lifted Civic, the car has not turned over. That is, until yesterday. After weeks of harness work and adaptation, it finally is turning over. This is absolutely...

And the Disappointment of the Decade award goes to…..

I had an old-school Honda buddy give me some advice once. He said he gave up on Honda as a company a long time ago, and life got a lot less heartbreaking. We all love the golden era of Honda. Honda/Acura created some truly innovative & remarkable cars that were...

Bridgemoto FC RX-7

A while back, I received a call from Wooley (editor of this magazine), asking if I'd be interested in doing a photoshoot with a widebody FC RX-7. The obvious answer was yes. However, I had never met the owner of this car, Alan Newsome, and only knew about him through...

Old car magazines

I've got a collection of my dad's old car magazines dating back to the 70s. And I just ran across this Road & Track from September of 1989 that somehow got mixed in with a stack of S3s. Thought y'all might enjoy a few photos of the good ol' days. Maybe I'll make...

Ford Maverick Sellin’ out

Hey Hey - according to Bloomberg this little Ford Maverick turd is selling well in preorders. Then again, as with the new Bronco, Ford’s current issue seems to be more on the end of actually delivering than selling. But hell I guess that applies to most every company...

Revealed (unfortunately): The all-new 2022 Honda Civic Si

The new Honda Accord I mean Civic Si was released. And to no one’s surprise, it’s another ugly car to deal with.  If you lower it, it’ll just be ugly & low.  If you put wheels on it, you’re putting wheels on an ugly car. This literally has to stop. Please Honda,...

KPower Industries – high horsepower K-Swapped Miata

As a country, we’ve been in a little bit of a funk. Ok... a lotta bit. But for the sake of the article just go with me here. We're like siblings fighting. We squabble over hot-button topics like fish to bait, as we're adapting poorly to a social media-driven,...
