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?...

Toyota Tundra TRD Off-Road Review

Toyota Tundra TRD Off-Road Review

One of the biggest hurdles for the new Toyota Tundra to overcome… is the greatness of the last generation Tundra. Meaning, the last-model Tundra (specifically 2015-2021) is so good, it’s really tough to beat. So let’s talk about the most obvious/apparent DNA change -...

“The Gray Z” – 650+ HP, Twin-Turbo Z32 300ZX

“The Gray Z” – 650+ HP, Twin-Turbo Z32 300ZX

Not all Z's are created equal. While I was at Helen Import Day I was immediately taken back with one particular car. A kind of car that normally, I don't pay much attention to. But this one - this one had all of my attention. Meet James Moore and his twin turbo 300ZX....

To Infiniti & Beyond: VIP static Q45

To Infiniti & Beyond: VIP static Q45

A big part of my forever-addiction to older cars - is that driving them transports you straight back into their era. That’s something that a lot of people either don’t understand, don’t appreciate, or maybe just haven’t experienced. But the sounds, the smells, the...

Helen Import Day ’22 – S3Magazine Coverage

Helen Import Day ’22 – S3Magazine Coverage

Helen Import Day returns for the 8th time in Helen, GA. If you've never been to Helen, imagine an old German town (ye olde style) in the middle of the mountains. It's as the kids call it "a vibe." Also, a perfect place to host car shows and other automotive related...

Sinh’s Evo 8 & Dan’s Supercharged 350Z

By God, we got a couple race cars on our hands! A couple weekends ago, I was invited to a hangout by my good friend Sinh (who a few of you probably remember from the cover of issue 55). It was at our friend Dan's house. It ended up being more of his kids birthday...

A Good Plowman can Plow even with a Goose

A Good Plowman can Plow even with a Goose

Think about it. In America, Western Europe, and/or Japan for example… we have the convenience of living in hotspots for aftermarket car culture. The world’s car manufacturers are based in these countries. The aftermarket culture is rich in these countries. Even the...

Lifted, rally, Subaru??? Miata

Caleb, better known as Gingium on Youtube, is always coming up with crazy, yet oddly-appropriate ideas. Check out his channel if you haven't already. A mid-engine 1st-gen Eclipse, Toyota V8-swapped Mazda minitruck, and this wild WRX/Miata hybrid are are just a couple...

Great Balls of Fire! 1955 Pontiac

Great Balls of Fire! 1955 Pontiac

Imagine stumbling across an old rusted car in a field. In this case, it’s a 1955 Pontiac. It’s clearly been sitting abandoned for years. Decades more likely. No one has moved the car in a very, very long time. And everything that could be rusted... is rusted. Most...
