Switzerland moving to ban EVs – True or False?

There is a screenshot from Fox News going around on social media. Its saying that Switzerland is moving to ban EVs. That seemed a little suspect… so we looked into it. Turns out - Switzerland government officials are considering a possible ban for nonessential...

Off-Road / Overland Holiday Gift Ideas – 10 gifts under $100

I get this question a lot: "Hey Bubba, what would make a good gift for someone who loves off-roading & already has everything?" My knee-jerk suggestion is beer from a local brewery. But if they're persistent, then I usually aim for something under $100... and...

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....

The Acura Integra Type-S is coming!

The Acura Integra Type-S is coming. It should arrive in mid/later 2023. Basically - expect it to be Acura's version of the new FL5 Civic Type-R. It ain’t rocket science lol… that’s just exactly what it is. Same taco; slightly different sauce. Maybe just a little nicer...

The deadline is here – who will sell Ford EVs?

In mid-September, Ford announced that all Ford dealerships had until Halloween to decide if they wanted to become ‘EV Certified’. The giant stipulation was - it would cost each Ford dealer roughly $500,000 or $1,200,000… depending on if they wanted to be Tier-1 or...

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

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...

GM butchers the Corvette legacy

To no one’s real surprise at this point, GM is turning the Corvette into 'a brand' (similar to Hummer or Buick). And to launch the new Corvette brand, GM will add an EV Corvette 4-door, and an EV Corvette Crossover to the mix… giving posers across the country a chance...

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...

GM is not giving up the internal combustion engine

GM President, Mark Reuss, recently said that GM is not giving up on the internal combustion engine?? He said this during an investor day just before Thanksgiving break. But wait… REWIND… doesn't this feel like the TOTAL OPPOSITE of what GM has been touting publicly?...

Be stronger, tougher, more weathered/textured… a little more stubborn, and a little less compliant in your life. ...

Dan Ristau’s Blobeye WRX

Dan Ristau’s Blobeye WRX

Subaru WRXs were unique and... almost intoxicating/hypnotic when they hit the market in the US.  They looked quirky, goofy, and lovable... but also mean, stout, & confident. We knew the Subaru WRX/STi legacy from Gran Turismo & rally, but they were finally...

Daft Junk: Pipey McGraw’s Bugeye Sprite

Daft Junk: Pipey McGraw’s Bugeye Sprite

People always ask 'what we’re looking for' in a feature car...  Relatability. That’s it... that’s the big secret lol.  Because to me, relatability has an energizing & encouraging affect. Relatability has more impact than perfection. Perfection is nice, but...

Old School Civic // 2010 S3 Throwback

Old School Civic // 2010 S3 Throwback

Man sometimes I look at old S3 features, and I cringe lol. Not this time....  In 2010, Import Alliance was at the height of it's momentum. In the moment, I don't think we realized how good it was... the way it was bringing us all together. See the 2008 recession had...

Mid engine, gated 6-speed, V8 R8

Mid engine, gated 6-speed, V8 R8

I consider the R8 to be an exotic... and exotic-type cars normally don’t appeal to me much anymore. What makes a sports car exotic? The rad-era exotics of my youth, loved ‘em! But that was the 80s/90s when we had F40/Countach/Testarossa/911 posters on our wall. Not...

Lifted Sprinter

Lifted Sprinter

Overland Sprinters - they’re like the Leatherman Multi-Tool of 4x4s. Meaning... they’re bulky, you really don’t need it, and honestly you’ll probably just leave it at home 90% of the time.  But there’s something so...

Mechanical Advantage brings the meat

Mechanical Advantage brings the meat

Listen, there’s something special going on with this Mechanical Advantage time-attack team. Ima tell ya.  Maybe it’s the solid team dynamic. Or maybe it's their race cars being both brilliantly practical & brilliantly engineered. It could even be the fact that...

No clutch pedal on a 944

No clutch pedal on a 944

We got the 944 running! And as spiritually uplifting as that feels lol, it just means that we now have to address every... other... problem... with this car. Starting with the Porsche 944 clutch pedal. We don't seem to have a clutch pedal. It just flops to the floor....

G35 Coupe so clean

G35 Coupe so clean

I tend to dislike G35s... Infinity made too many of them... in unexciting colors. G35s have lost all their value, which relates to them becoming cheaply-modified. And most of the G35s I run across seems to be clapped-out, riced-out, not maintained... riding on...
