K-Swapped RA1 Honda Odyssey – slam the minivan

This is a 1st generation RA1 Honda Odyssey - radicalized. And here’s the thing about a modified minivan like this. Beneath the sheet metal and all the oddball awesomeness - it’s a totally epic conversation starter. An 'icebreaker' anywhere it travels. See, this Honda...

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,...

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

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...
