Ford continues to back off EV mandates – cut ’em slack?

A couple years ago in the peak of EV overhype, Ford was giving their dealerships a strong & mega-costly EV ultimatum. You can find that initial story here & the follow-ups & pushback here & here (or just keep reading for the Cliff's Notes). Now - it's...

Civic Type-R Review – always 10% better

I've been gushing over the FL5 Civic Type-R like Buddy the freaking Elf. “I’m in love, I’m in love, & I don’t care who knows it.” Yeah - the Civic Type-R is that good. All things considered, it might actually be the best. Here we go: A few years ago…  We had an...

MK3 GTI turbo – punch above your weight

Presenting Zeke Young’s Mk3 GTI turbo. Wait scratch that: This isn’t even a GTI technically. It’s a 1995 Volkswagen Golf Sport. But that’s kind of irrelevant at this point, because it’s been swapped with a 1.8T & mated to a Corrado G60 transmission with limited...

Mustang Dark Horse Review – last pony standing

The Mustang Dark Horse: It’s wicked, it’s unruly, it’s the last pony standing… and the steering kinda stinks.  The allure of the modern Mustang… We’re in a time where modern technology has filled in the gaps of human skill & mastery. And honestly - it’s killed the...

DODGE CEO retires

Tim Kuniskis, CEO of DODGE (and Ram), is seeing himself out the damn door. It was a hell of a run & brotherhood salutes you. But in the woke world, apparently all good things must come to a flaccid end lol. Tim did the best anyone could. He fought for the Dodge...

Low & Wide OBS Silverado – on a Craftsman Truck Series chassis

Curious creativity. Or as the kids call it: FAFO. That’s what the hotrod spirit is REALLY all about. It’s not about conformity, fitting in, or following an influencer. Rather - it’s about handing over the keys to that curious/devious voice inside your head. And making...

Celica GT-Four – Enthusiasts Make Enthusiasts

The Celica GT-Four is a cool car, no doubt. But for John Mamone, it’s honestly not about the car. It’s about the friendships. Interesting cars are just the common thread here… the glue. Yeah-yeah I know that sounds cliché. But when you break it down, it’s everything. ...

Cars at the Capitol – hosted by SEMA & PRI

I was recently given the opportunity to participate in the Cars At The Capitol event hosted by SEMA & PRI. My car, a 1995 3000GT Spyder (previously featured in S3) was included as part of a 9-vehicle display hosted on Capitol Hill. What an experience! This diverse...

Lincoln Nautilus – American Luxury Made in China

If you want a pampering, luxurious, tech-forward driving experience, the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus should be on your list. BUT... it's made in China. Maybe you care about that, maybe you don’t. But historically when you think “Lincoln” you tend to think premium American...

Intelligent Speed Assist – Yeah No

  In a world increasingly governed by beeps & intervention... a new contender has emerged that threatens the very fabric & essence of driving freedom: Intelligent Speed Assist (ISA). You may have heard of it, it's the technological equivalent of someone...

Coyote swapped E46 BMW

This E46 BMW is a very special candy, because it's Coyote swapped with a Roush supercharger. Why you ask? Why the ...

Genesis G90 Review

The Genesis G90 is truly a stunning luxury vehicle. Podium VIP, it boasts a confident styling independence that follows no one. In the current automotive landscape where most vehicles looks the same & unmemorable (if not down downright fugly), the G90 is something...

Audi RS3 – Second Chances

Audi RS3 – Second Chances

This is my takeaway from Mauricio Martinez’s Audi RS3. How many of us tell ourselves ‘we can always buy another one’… but we never do. Truth is: as a car enthusiast, when you sell a car, you’re at a very vulnerable point. And it's not just emotional either lol....

Josh Freeman’s Toyota Chaser

Josh Freeman’s Toyota Chaser

This Toyota Chaser JZX100 was originally supposed to be a drift car project. When Josh Freeman of Vaded bought & imported it… the thing already had an angle kit & some other goodies straight from the backstreets of Japan. But here’s the catch: Josh technically...

Incremental Improvements With The 987

Incremental Improvements With The 987

Car builds can spiral out of control quickly. With everyone, including myself (having the attention span of a squirrel these days), ideas and goals change quickly. To avoid that, I write you guys to hold me accountable. Not really, but it sounds good on paper. In this...

My tuner friends have an overlanding problem

My tuner friends have an overlanding problem

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve probably noticed the explosion of the ‘overland scene’. I guess Covid really fueled the primal need for people to get outta the house. Whatever the case, the camping & outdoor market saw numbers like never before. For the...

VIP Nissan Cima – Well ok then

VIP Nissan Cima – Well ok then

If we’re being honest here, I’ve always had a hard time understanding the why behind VIP cars. Coincidentally so has Alexander Richards. Alex & I are both naturally drawn to agile/quick cars. You know… rippers! Yet having said that, here we are, looking at Alex's...
