VW Rabbit Pickup – Nothing Amazing

“It’s nothing amazing, but it looks cool.” That’s how Eric Garrison describes his daily-driven 1981 VW Rabbit pickup (aka Caddy). And you know what? A lot of people don’t realize the full truth & wisdom of that statement. Because the truth is, "nothing amazing,...

BMW 2002 – Family Ties

Old vehicles have a way of capturing moments in time & bottling-up vivid memories & nostalgia. They have a way of transcending their mechanical/utilitarian nature, and becoming sentimental family heirlooms… passed down through generations. Such is the case...

Stand-up Jet Ski – new vs old?

I got into stand-up jet skis 3 years ago. No, I can’t do flips, I’m by no means a pro, and I’m not an OG in this world. But I’ve spent my life around visceral cars (mostly of the 80s & 90s), I’ve run an automotive magazine for 18 years, and I’m very in touch with...

Ford Maverick – You Can be my Wingman Anytime

Ford Maverick understands its mission. The modern truck market has gone off the rails in size & in price. And the Ford Maverick returns as an economical, versatile, usable entry-point back into the truck segment. But there’s MORE to the Maverick than that. Call it...

Supercharged S550 Mustang – Prosport boost gauge install

Mike bought this S550 Mustang GT brand new in 2017 for $27,000. I’m not done. He also got it with 0% financing on a 6-year loan. The same GT today would cost you something like $50,000 with 7% interest lol. RIP affordable/impulsive/fun cars. Anyway lol - this article...

Ecoboost Miata – 490hp out of a $1,200 junkyard Explorer motor

Ford had such a good thing going with their ST & RS platforms. If you got exposed to it, it was hard not to get sucked in. Because the ST/RS stuff embodied a lot of that intangible, indescribable, infectious hot-hatch energy that's often lost in new cars. They...

New BMW M5 – the plot is lost

The new 2025 BMW M5 is (arguably) another massacre from an enthusiast’s and/or purist’s point of view. But here’s the thing: Don’t blame BMW. Well, do blame BMW. But also blame these governments around the world who are making asinine decisions for the sake of “the...

Road construction techniques used overseas – could it work here?

As the son of a civil engineer, I’ve always been curious about road construction, especially when driving through snowy regions or urban jungles. Recently I delved into road construction techniques & practices used overseas and wondered: Could these methods work...

Ford Bronco – Better than Jeep?

The Ford Bronco gets compared to the Jeep Wrangler because has a lot of “Jeep features”. Meaning - it’s a square-bodied rugged 4x4 with a removable top & doors. Your hair blows in the wind, and your problems blow away. Both the Jeep and Bronco have a spirit &...

Acura Integra Type-S – totally redeem yourself!

It’s hard to talk about the Acura Integra Type-S without comparing it to the Honda Civic Type-R. But I’m gonna try and not to do that too much… because it’s not fair to make one brother live in the other brother’s shadow. That being said: If you want to read our FL5...

2016 Honda Pilot Review

2016 Honda Pilot Review

Initially, the new 2016 Honda Pilot did not win me over. It came to us straight after the Toyota Highlander, and the first impressions did not stack up to the Highlander. HOWEVER - in the Pilot’s defense, I had just come off of a long road trip with the Highlander....

2015 Ford Mustang GT Review

2015 Ford Mustang GT Review

The new 2015 Ford Mustang GT is an awesome car across the board. And it’s only fair that I preface this by saying that I have never really been a Mustang guy either… or even a muscle car guy for that matter. I’m more of a fan of the shiftiness, deceptive speed,...

2015 Buick Regal GS review

Turbo, AWD and Brembos….on a Buick?   I know that you’re thinking somehow I got mixed up and wrote an STi review instead of a Buick Regal review.  Well you’re wrong.  This is the 2015 Buick Regal GS!  Now Buick is in the midst of trying to reinvent itself.  Instead of...

2015 Toyota Camry XSE V6 Review

An appliance.  A beigemobile.  Vanilla.  Those are just some of the commonly used descriptors that are associated with the Camry.  Unfortunately it’s not a fair assessment of the vehicle.  The Camry has always been perfectly engineered mediocrity.  What does that...
