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?...

2017 Toyota Tacoma Limited Review

2017 Toyota Tacoma Limited Review

First thoughts: Wow this 2017 Toyota Tacoma Limited in Dune looks freaking great!  Compared to the Chevy Colorado the Tacoma exudes machismo and grit in spades.  Now on to the bad.  Why can’t I fit in this damn thing??  Am I just dis-proportioned?  Nope it’s the...

2017 Mazda3 Hatchback Review

2017 Mazda3 Hatchback Review

With the 2017 Mazda3 Hatchback, Mazda seems to be really committed to their 'Skyactiv' engine campaign, and I can’t figure out why. I wish I could share Mazda’s passion for them, but to me, you just can’t be competitive in the ‘hatchback’ segment without a TURBO...

2017 Toyota Sienna Review

Acura TLX Aspec Review

Acura TLX Aspec Review

First Impression:  WHOA!! Wait?! Could this be?? I have NEVER liked the TLX. At all. In fact - I’ve always been kind of mad at it. Since the TLX’s release, it’s been a pharmaceutical salesman’s company car at best. That’s because someone would only pick the TLX, if...

Toyota Prius Review LOL… but seriously

Toyota Prius Review LOL… but seriously

Be warned that this review is extremely bipolar. That’s because I hated the Prius, right up until I had to turn it back in. Then I missed it. …58 miles per gallon is hard to lose.  The 2017 Toyota Prius gets 58 miles per gallon. Let me repeat that… FIFTY EIGHT miles...

Toyota Corolla iM Review

Toyota Corolla iM Review

The Toyota IM: This is the car you buy your daughter for graduation if you love her enough to keep her safe & sound. …But not enough to get her the BMW she really wants. The IM is slow, it’s reliable, it’s economical, it comes in this fun color, and it doesn’t...

2017 Acura MDX Review

2017 Acura MDX Review

You take luxury, plus sensibility, plus durability. You work them together in equal parts… and you have the 2017 Acura MDX. All the women in my life, from age 3-63, LOVED this car. And although it’s not really ‘my cup of tea’ as a car enthusiast, hypothetically I...
