Old Car Funk: EV-Converted VW Vanagon

You know, it’s not the EVs that I despise. It’s the overall uninspiring lack of character they have. No matter how you want to try and slice it & serve it to me… current new-model EVs lack soul, substance, & passion. Not to mention - I find all these...

FC RX7 convertible

JB Guillotte is one of those 1st-generation American drifters. He’s a self-proclaimed simple man… but I call BS lol. JB just knows what makes him happy, that's all… and that can come across as simple a lot of the time. He's also humble & smart. Damn smart. With a...

Hello What Time is it? Z10 Toyota Soarer

I’ll level with you. Instagram’s not my favorite thing, although I am having fun with Reels & Stories recently lol. But overall, I barely know how to check messages... and I barely care. I just don't like the fact that you can follow somebody & they don't...

Tis the season for water sports again. So soak it up! This is my project stand-up jet ski, a 1996 Kawasaki 750 sxi. We got this thing as an absolute busted disaster for 650 bucks. High on hopes & dreams, we then spent most of last summer repairing hull damage...

This is the tale of how Aaron Jarnigan won a lowrider Lincoln. Let me paint the picture. If you don’t know Aaron Jarnigan already, just imagine him looking like Farmer Jon. White boy, flannel shirt, sun hat, Tennessee native, and car culture aficionado.  Aaron decided...

This Means War: Terminator Cobra

(From S3 Magazine: Issue 58) I know a lot of y’all reading this magazine come from an import tuning background. But I also know those 'import vs domestic' lines blurred a long time ago because y’all V8 swap everything these days, break the rules, and generally get...

MK2 GTi drift car

This is Erin Sanford’s MK2 GTi drift car. It’s RWD, running a turbocharged Nissan KA24. Here’s the backstory on how it came to be.  The GTi actually belonged to me & my dad... At that point, it was still a regular FWD 16v GTi. And before us, a Georgia Tech student...

Getting Elevated: Overland Jeep JL

Getting Elevated: Overland Jeep JL

“It’s all about the journey, not the destination” That’s a quote I’ve heard many times, but a concept I didn’t fully understand until I joined the Overlanding scene. Overlanding gave me the ability to explore different areas near & far, at my own pace, all while...

GT-R Done: Red and Carbon R35

GT-R Done: Red and Carbon R35

Recently, Wooley and I got the chance to drive a new NSX for the weekend. While shooting a video on that car, we realized how it’s impossible to grasp the real feelings behind the car’s unreal numbers… until you’ve had 1st-hand seat time. And frankly, for a lot of us,...

Drive Más – Overland Toyota Tacoma

Drive Más – Overland Toyota Tacoma

I'm a Jeep guy. That means I wave back. I think crossover SUVs are basically minivans, and I'm probably going to have an eclectic collection of rusting junk in my backyard one day. I blame my father for this addiction, as he owned (only) a CJ-5 when I was born… which...
