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...

2015 Nissan Juke Nismo RS Review

By: Yousef Alvi and Jonathan Wooley No doubt - the Nissan Juke Nismo RS is an odd little crossover. You either can’t understand for the life of you why Nissan made it… or you can’t understand why you kind of want it. Or both. We can tell you after driving the Nismo...

2015 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro Review

By: Yousef Alvi and Jonathan Wooley In the 90s, SUVs had a real sense of utility and purpose… that spawned a natural attraction to them. There was a generational movement, to get out and explore the world. To get dirty. And to use a vehicle not just for a daily...
