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?...

Acura MDX SH-AWD A-SPEC

Acura MDX SH-AWD A-SPEC

Bottom Line: The Acura MDX SH-AWD A-SPEC is one of the good ones in the segment.  The A-SPEC interior nails it.  The A-SPEC exterior touches (and this particular shade of Modern Steel Metallic gray on Shark gray 20in wheels) doesn’t shout… but it’s striking &...

Barn Truck F150 update

Project Update... If you saw the previous post on this ol' bricknose Ford F150, I just wanted to give a quick update as to where it sits now (pun intended). Cliff's Notes: This was my wife's grandfather's 2wd F150. He bought it new, he's since passed, it's been...

Eurowise ’69 Mercedes 280s Turbo LS

Eurowise ’69 Mercedes 280s Turbo LS

Everything with Excellence The Story of this Mercedes Benz W108 280S isn’t the story I thought I would write. When I first saw it I thought, “Man, this thing is so gangster”, and it would be easy to speak about it in low rider parlance. But what I found was the story...

Shane Whalley’s LS Swapped Mustang

Shane Whalley’s LS Swapped Mustang

You don’t usually see the newer & current chassis built-out to this extent… at a privateer level. But Shane Whalley had a unique opportunity with this car, and he grabbed it straight by the balls.  This Mustang was originally a Coyote GT, and it was being used as...

Victory 4×4 Tacoma

Daryl Hutson here... from JCR Off-Road & Victory 4x4! 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...

James Wood’s FC Mazda RX7

Sucking At Something… is the first step towards being Sorta Good At Something.  I call up James Wood to talk about his RX-7. I ask him what he’s doing. And he says, “Working on my RX-7.” If you own an RX-7… are you ever really not working on it?  [gallery...

Bricknose F150 Barn Truck: Project

Bricknose F150 Barn Truck: Project

This was my wife’s grandfather’s truck. He bought it new in 1990. It was swiftly dubbed amongst the family as ‘Ford Country’… since it says Ford Country in that awesome font on the doors lol. Nevertheless, it was his favorite truck. He got a newer F150 one a little...
