Civic Type-R Review – always 10% better

I've been gushing over the FL5 Civic Type-R like Buddy the freaking Elf. “I’m in love, I’m in love, & I don’t care who knows it.” Yeah - the Civic Type-R is that good. All things considered, it might actually be the best. Here we go: A few years ago…  We had an...

Presenting Zeke Young’s Mk3 GTI turbo. Wait scratch that: This isn’t even a GTI technically. It’s a 1995 Volkswagen Golf Sport. But that’s kind of irrelevant at this point, because it’s been swapped with a 1.8T & mated to a Corrado G60 transmission with limited...

Curious creativity. Or as the kids call it: FAFO. That’s what the hotrod spirit is REALLY all about. It’s not about conformity, fitting in, or following an influencer. Rather - it’s about handing over the keys to that curious/devious voice inside your head. And making...

Celica GT-Four – Enthusiasts Make Enthusiasts

The Celica GT-Four is a cool car, no doubt. But for John Mamone, it’s honestly not about the car. It’s about the friendships. Interesting cars are just the common thread here… the glue. Yeah-yeah I know that sounds cliché. But when you break it down, it’s everything. ...

Lexus LC 500h Review

Personally - I see the Lexus LC 500h almost as a rolling concept car that somehow made it through to production. I mean just look at it… it’s on another level. The LC has been out for years now, but it still feels unreal that it even exists. It's truly a testament to...
