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?...

2018 Toyota Sienna review

Here’s the thing. If you’re reading this late at night when no one’s looking. And you’re peaking around online because you need a new car. And you have a growing family that you love. And you’re just a little minivan-curious… but you don’t wanna be a sellout because...

Civic Type R (CTR) Swapped Civic SI

Civic Type R (CTR) Swapped Civic SI

This is Kevin Boehm’s 2017 Honda Civic Si… with a Type R CTR swap. Yes I know what you’re thinking. Why in the HELL would you buy a new Civic and immediately swap it with a different engine out of the same chassis? Why not just buy the Type R from the beginning? I had...

The Best First Mods for BRZ / FRS / 86

The Best First Mods for BRZ / FRS / 86

Ian Barton wanted to preserve the essence of the 86 as he built & drove it. So in that spirit, he wanted to reach the car’s limits BEFORE he added power. Meaning… he did not want to build the car BACKWARDS… as so many people rush out & do.  5 years ago, the...

Fiat 124 Abarth review

Whether you go with the Fiat 124, or the Mazda MX-5… you’re getting the real-thing. And you’re part of the resistance, who’s NOT succumbing to asphyxiation by crossover & fake SUV. Throwing the top back at 25mph on a whim is a therapy that other cars, even other...

Text: Yousef Alvi  //  Photos: Geoff Dennis By golly they did it!  Someone has injected some fun back into Honda!  Gone are the days where I mocked them incessantly for ‘earth dreams’ motors and flaccid chassis.  With the Civic Type R, Si and now this 2018 Honda...

Formula D Road Atlanta 2018: The Quinceñera

First off, you've seen the big XV tag along the Formula Drift name this season: this is FD's 15th year since it's inaugural season. That's 15 hot years of sponsorships and vibrant liveries sliding across tracks around the nation. That's hundreds of barrels of fuel...

Tundra Double Cab TRD 4×4 review

Tundra Double Cab TRD 4×4 review

The Tundra is one of those can’t explain it trucks. Meaning - I can’t really explain why I like this particular truck so much, or why I got so attached to it. I think a lot of Tundra owners can probably relate. It’s like a dog that just follows you home & becomes...
