Tech geeks & Tesla boys are pitching tents in their capri pants over this Cybertruck video right now. And yeah I’ll give credit where it’s due: The Cybertruck’s water crossing is impressive. But not THAT impressive.  1) The wake made by the flat-nosed 6,900-pound...

Honda S2000 – disconnect from the new connected

Believe it or not, this Honda S2000 was rejected from Bring A Trailer. Citing: The car was too modified. I guess that makes sense. But in hindsight, that was probably the best thing that could've happened to David Patterson. Because it made him say, “You know what… on...

GR Corolla – reject herd mentality

This is Keith Fullhart’s widebody Porsche 996, and here’s the motto: First & foremost, let it be known that we are car enthusiasts. That’s an identity we claim, but can’t quite explain coherently. Suffice it to say, we see cars differently than most… and a lot...

‘Kei truck vs Georgia’ on my mind

The 'Kei truck vs Georgia' situation has been weighing heavily on my mind lately. And I’ve been pondering how to reasonably untangle this issue. Look we live in a free… err… first-world country. And it might be wishful thinking, but at some point, our overlords need...

I swear, GM is just a politician that sells cars.

Just a quick recap here: GM went ‘all in’ on EVs. They made unrealistic, & pandering claims. Now a couple years later, the few EVs that GM has released, have been an utter disaster across the board. We’re talking recalls (ex: Hummer EV), stop-sales (ex: Blazer...

Cut Corners

A lot of people vibe with this magazine (or don’t) because we celebrate cars that are different, or typically unpopular. Cars that other print mags wouldn’t risk it with. The tricky thing is, as an editor… is that it can be a double-edged sword. Or more accurately, it...

Obsession. The safe-players in this world try and talk down on it. They raise an eyebrow to it with a negative connotation… as if ‘obsession’ was a checkmark of instability, or unpredictability. But nothing - could be further from reality. Obsession is a completely...
