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

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...

Incremental Improvements With The 987

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?...

Honda Accord HYBRID review – Are Hybrids worth it?

Honda Accord HYBRID review – Are Hybrids worth it?

Dreams tend to die quick these days. Life, responsibility, work… there is always something we have to do instead. It’s a serious commitment to sit down and say, “I’m gonna see this through.” And it's much easier to fall into your grind and say, “I’ll get to it...
