Trajectory of car culture

The automotive industry has seen massive disruptions in a short time. And it’s changed the fabric of car culture right before our eyes. This is by no means an all-encompassing article, but here are some things to think about: The manual transmission is on life...

Lexus GX 550 Review – best GX yet??

Toyota & Lexus are on fire. They have serious momentum, not only in their new lineups, but also in their leadership. And it shows. Toyota & Lexus have a clear sense of identity in an automotive age where most competitors have lost theirs… along with their...

80 series Land Cruiser – extreme durability
