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?...

Widebody Dinan BMW M2

Widebody BMW M2... When I first got into this car-building underworld, I did it for the kickass & badass cars. Pretty simple formula right? But what I didn’t understand at the time, is that behind every awesome car, there’s usually a more awesome person that built...

Toyota Tacoma TRD Offroad

Toyota Tacoma TRD Offroad

The Tacoma TRD Offroad 4x4 is as sure as the sunrise... We all know & love ‘em. Though the prices on the Toyota Tacoma TRD Offroad 4x4 seems to tick-up with every sunrise too! The rent is too damn high! A midsize truck for the price of a moderately decked-out...

Running Boards on a Lowered OBS Bricknose F150

My latest midnight Marketplace score was this set of old OEM running boards off a later 92-96 OBS F150. Here they are, in all their glory... installed, but unpainted on my lowered bricknose F150. They came off a gray truck, which I thought might conveniently match the...

Social UNdistancing STI

Social UNdistancing STI

Brandon Deuster on his 2018 Subaru WRX STi... I got into cars at the youngest possible age. Since before I could walk, I was obsessed with Hot Wheels and practically anything with an engine & tires. My dad and I would walk around the mall when I was a toddler, and...

Camry TRD

Camry TRD

The Toyota Camry TRD is a head-turner… no 2 ways about it. Here’s why: Expectation vs reality.  With the new Supra for example, our expectations (and hopes) were really high. The Supra has dream-car expectations to live up to. Hence the wide spectrum of debates &...

Holley’s Intergalactic Ford Fest 2020

Coming off Holley’s Intergalactic Ford Fest … I realized I learned a little something from my fellow Ford bros.  Number 1... Live in the moment. Truly BE where your feet are. And stop trying to live on/for social media. And… learn to rock the sh!t out of a mullet. ...

Static S13: Where there’s a Weds; there’s a way

Static S13: Where there’s a Weds; there’s a way

Life is an adventure right? So metaphorically, carry an wide-eyed outlook on life similar to this S13 240SX Silvia: Go purple, go low, go wide, go big, and come through smiling. C’mon - it’d be naive (if not downright foolish) to think you could micromanage the whole...

Holley Ford Fest PT2

Here's a 2nd lesson that's been settling-in with me from Holley's Intergalactic Ford Fest: You don’t necessarily need to have the quickest / or cleanest / or highest horsepower car on the block. Sometimes ‘the best’ can honestly become a little expected &...
