Matt’s smarter than me. Right from the start let’s get that straight... For the last several years I have gone on & on about the Ford Fiesta ST being the best, most fun car… even for double it’s sticker price. Yet I don’t own one. Matt does and it’s one of the...

“Over My Dead Body” // RB25DET-swapped Datsun 280z

Be warned: This is some 'Talladega Nights' sh*t right here. And I mean that in the best worst way.  Let me try & set the stage:  It was a late summer afternoon in 1975 when young Jeff Ross brought home his new Datsun 280z. It was the first new car he ever...

Race Red Ford Ranger FX4 Review

With the Ranger, I think Ford has more leash to experiment with design & concepts, compared to the   F150... Ford can't experiment with the F150 tooooo much, since it's the bread & butter seller in America. Americans like their trucks a certain way... big,...

The FIRST S55 Swapped E30 M3

Make Something that Makes Something... Check out this BMW E30 M3 with an M55 swap. I wish that, going into 2020, we had more people who set out to inspire… and less people who signed-up to influence. To influence is a self-serving interest… building one’s own ego...

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...
