Lifted Subaru Impreza – Project Wagon V2

Hey you! Are you fed up with rules & regulations? Sick of all these road signs telling you what you can’t do? Tired of being surrounded by dimwits, hipsters, wokesters… and Dollar Generals with their offensive yellow bags? The problem isn’t you. It’s them... See -...

H20i Wildwood reaction

Looking at what happened during this bootleg-version of H20i in Wildwood, it's glaringly obvious that we have a severe culture problem in this country... and now it's spilling over into car culture. What we saw in Wildwood was not ‘a little disruptive,’ it was totally...

Please quit leaving your trash in street.

GM / Cruise self driving cars are well... not self driving & blocking traffic in the streets. This is honestly too dumb to write about. But luckily, The Drive took one for team & did it for us. It's cool how they're allowed to use public roads for potentially...

Welcome to Moe’s… K-swapped EK Civic Coupe

There’s a sequence of emotions to building a project car. 1) Motivation comes first, hard & fast. There are few rushes greater than getting that new project & making initial progress. 2) Next comes the anxiety of completion. The weeks & months of...

Lexus LX 600 F Sport review

Not gonna lie, the Lexus LX 600 F Sport is very amazing. And I’ll preface by saying, I wasn’t a huge fan of the last model LX. The last generation LX was very nice, and its V8 will probably outlive us all. But man it felt heavy. And while I guess that translated to a...

C8 Corvette by Rohana Wheels

It’s just about impossible to start a wheel company WITHOUT being huge car enthusiasts. Why would you? It’s not the line of work you fall into unless you care… big time. It’s a business venture that’s ultimately spawned by form, function, and passion. Another cool...

Set to Excel – 2JZ-swapped kouki 240SX

This feature isn’t about investing in cars, it’s about investing in people. Scott & Allen are the two main characters of this story. Scott Keiser grew up just trying to make ends meet. Therefore car culture unfortunately wasn’t an option for Scott as a teenager....

NTSB wants to mandate alcohol detectors & speed limiters in cars

The NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) is lobbying to get alcohol detectors installed into every car. This is regardless of whether or not you have a DUI conviction, or whether or not you even drink at all. With modern automotive technology, sensors can now...

1965 Lotus Cortina: A 50-year daydream

This article is worth your time. Because it’s not just about some weird little 1965 Lotus Cortina… it’s about you! But 55 years ago, back in time. So let’s take it back roughly 55-years, to 1966…  In 1966, Jerry Peters was your typical middle-class teenager. BUT… he...

Galant VR4 – Mitsubishi VS Monica Lewinsky

Galant VR4 – Mitsubishi VS Monica Lewinsky

If there was a competition for companies who had the world by the balls in the 90s, and blew it the most by the mid 2000s, I bet it would be very close between Mitsubishi, Marlboro, MTV, and Monica Lewinsky. And Mitsubishi would take it.  The Galant VR4... It’s...

VW truck – define Rich

VW truck – define Rich

Rich Robertson was basically born with a wrench in his hand. His dad was an old-school air-cooled VW nut. In short - Rich has been around Veedubs his whole life. But enough with all that. No one cares about Rich lol. Ya'll just wanna know about Rich's Rabbit truck...

Midori Green EG Civic circa 2011 – Throwback Thursday

Midori Green EG Civic circa 2011 – Throwback Thursday

This Midori Green Honda EG Civic hatch was sent to us back in 2011. We never printed it. And I feel kinda bad about that now, because the car's owner, Josh Queen, is a solid dude. These are 11-year-old cell phone photos... And I vaguely remember these exact photos...

Just ain’t Caravan – Boosted & Bad Habits

Hi I'm Dakota Arnold, and I've always been a big fan of the Neon SRT4 platform. In fact, I've owned 8 of them lol. I just can’t seem to get away. I've always been into cars and going fast - there's nothing like it! My first vehicle was actually a minivan, a 1998 Chevy...

Who would’ve ever thought we’d be featuring a boosted Crown Victoria!? Yet here we are; the world's a wild place. Even wilder when it's got Will Stipes & Dakota Arnold of Boost & Bad Habits in it. I’ll let Will Stipes take this from here: Week 1:  I originally...

3000GT Spyder – Outside the Box

3000GT Spyder – Outside the Box

Holy sh*t. Here I sit, writing a feature on my very own car for my favorite automotive magazine. A car that I dreamt of owning back when I was in high school. And if you asked me back then what my dream job was, I would have told you an automotive journalist for a...

The Sparks Show ’22 – S3Magazine Coverage

One of the best mini truck events is back! For those unaware, the mini truck culture is alive and well in 2022. Last year, I attended the Sparks show for just one day and quickly realized, there's so much more. This year, I stayed with some friends of mine for the...

BMW M1 by Canepa – Procar 094

BMW M1 by Canepa – Procar 094

(This is a throwback feature from S3 Magazine, circa 2016.) The BMW M1 was BMW’s first run at a mid-engine exotic, and it happened in the 70’s era of emerging new supercars. It was made from 1979-81, and only 453 were produced. BMW was building the M1 as a...

Unplugged Happy Place – Maine in a MK4 Supra

Unplugged Happy Place – Maine in a MK4 Supra

As a modern society, we’ve gotten it wrong with tech. Dangerously wrong in the last decade-or-so specifically. See our predecessors chased advances in technology (whether it was digital or mechanical)… to ultimately allow them more FREEDOM in life. But a lot of the...
