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?...

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...

The EPA targets Ebay Motors

Sometime low-key earlier this year, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) stopped Ebay Motors from selling any automotive products that could be deemed as 'emissions defeating'. That includes aftermarket hardware & software: Tuners, race exhausts, standalone...

Mazda CX-3 Review: y tho

Mazda CX-3 Review: y tho

I know this compact-crossover segment has really heated up… but can somebody please explain it to me?  All of these things look kind of disproportionately quirky-cool in appearance. They’re eye-catching, and a little intriguing at a stoplight… I’ll give ‘em that.  But...

Broader Perspective As I was talking with Matt Grimes & the crew from CCOR, we stumbled into a conversation about how the best all-around builds usually ended up being a healthy mix of aftermarket parts ENHANCED with clever custom application. See it’s all about a...

Southrnfresh 7 – Fall Meet 2018

Each year Southrnfresh holds a meet in Georgia, with the goal being a super laid-back event with an almost family-reunion style vibe. That said, it's not a gigantic meet by any means, but there is certainly a focus of quality over quantity in the showcase. You'll find...

JL Wrangler offroad

JL Wrangler offroad

As a Jeep owner & advocate, I really soaked-up the opportunity to drive the new, top-of-the-line JL Rubicon. And you know… being a Jeep owner… we couldn’t just pose this thing in the gravel/weeds behind a grocery store & make it appear OFF-ROAD. We felt an...

A Mud Bath is Still a Bath

A Mud Bath is Still a Bath

Back in the 60s Porsche has a long history dating back to the 1960s of competing in Rallye racing. Most noticeably - with ‘Quick Vic’ Elford stealing the silverware for 1st in the on-road/off-road Rallye Monte Carlo of 1968… all the way through to the manufacturer...

Errbody in the Club Gettin Swifty

The Mating of Two Extremes. 1) The goofiest little car. 2) The hottest street bike motor. …Both from the same manufacturer. It’s a hot rodder’s ageless cocktail. A cars & coffee feeding frenzy. We’ve all talked about building something like this. We’ve all...
