Forza Horizon 5 Review – An (Almost) Perfect Game

Let's get one thing out of the way first: Forza Horizon 5 is a fantastic game. It's actually so fantastic, it had me reminiscing about the last racing game that had me feeling this way. After much thought, I remembered back to the year 2005 when I first played Need...

Wild Child – Michaels Bagged, Widebody Callaway C7 Corvette

The EV Movement: Part 2

Ben Battles wrote a killer article with optimistic happy thoughts in his EV coverage of SEMA 2021… and I'm gonna tell you why he’s wrong lol. This might get a tad political (generally speaking), but just remember, I didn’t do it… politics did.  The government needs to...

The AWD Civic is FINALLY showing signs of life. Since we have swapped over the twin cam B-Series on the lifted Civic, the car has not turned over. That is, until yesterday. After weeks of harness work and adaptation, it finally is turning over. This is absolutely...

And the Disappointment of the Decade award goes to…..

I had an old-school Honda buddy give me some advice once. He said he gave up on Honda as a company a long time ago, and life got a lot less heartbreaking. We all love the golden era of Honda. Honda/Acura created some truly innovative & remarkable cars that were...

SEMA 2021 – The Future – It’s Electric! (Boogie Woogie, Woogie!)

2016 Mazda Miata MX-5 Review

The MX-5 is quick enough to keep you 100% engaged, entertained, and smiling. While being just slow enough to keep you mostly on the right side of the law & out of trouble. In other words, you can keep your foot in it - a lot.

The Old and The Beautiful

From back issue 25 There oughta be a word for a car like this. Or a phrase. Or a term. Hell – maybe there is a word/phrase/term for a car like this – and I just don’t know it. But… as a true car guy and culture guy, we all feel the same things when we see this. Run...

See To Feel

See To Feel

I’ve never considered myself to be much of an artist. But I always looked up to those kinds of people. I am a lover of art. And who knows… maybe that makes me appreciate it even more than the artist himself. After all - a woman is not overly fascinated with her own...

We Don’t Need Roads

...From backissue 24 When I say ‘Wagovan’, most of us all have the same exact picture pop up in our heads these days. We picture a Wagovan – slammed, stanced, fresh paint, with a bike rack, maybe a rusted hood, and a wood-grain steering wheel… sitting at Eibach or...

Bike Curious

If you’ve picked up this magazine, you’ve probably got the tendency to want to screw with stuff - everything you get your hands on, in fact. It’s just what we do. It’s coded somewhere in our DNA. There is no rehab for it, so don’t even bother. Nothing, out of the box,...

Finding the right chassis, let alone the right specific individual car, can be quite the challenge. We tend to wander nomadically during our early years experimenting… with different chassis and styles… until we find the one that calls to our own unique personality....

If you’ve owned 108 cars, and one of them is NOT an Ariel Atom - you’re doing it wrong. Fortunately, this guy Travis Chaney, is not one of those people. The short story on Travis is this: he’s owned 108 cars… compacts to exotics, and a good number of those have been...

Cut Corners

Cut Corners

A lot of people vibe with this magazine (or don’t) because we celebrate cars that are different, or typically unpopular. Cars that other print mags wouldn’t risk it with. The tricky thing is, as an editor… is that it can be a double-edged sword. Or more accurately, it...

Meat Therapy

Meat Therapy

  I recognize the fact that a lot of the younger-half of the import culture developed a love for this culture… and a lot of times that love was more or less built off the stance movement. Stance-related cars, shows, websites - what have you. And if that’s the...

Vintage Sketch

Obsession. The safe-players in this world try and talk down on it. They raise an eyebrow to it with a negative connotation… as if ‘obsession’ was a checkmark of instability, or unpredictability. But nothing - could be further from reality. Obsession is a completely...
