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?...

Lexus GS test drive & review

Lexus GS test drive & review

The Lexus GS is a very nice car through & through… but is that enough in 2017? That’s what I can’t figure out. And I just can’t drive the new Lexus GS… without thinking about its lineage. The original concept behind the GS-line, was an edgy sport sedan with some...

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Review

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Review

The first time I laid my eyes upon the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica I thought this:  ‘’Wow this thing looks great!  Wait did I just say a minivan looks great?  WTF is wrong with me!’’  I quickly ran back inside and took a shower to wash the dirty feeling off of my soul....

2017 Ford Raptor Review – offroad

Photos by Jonathan Walker Stop watching/reading fake news - The 2017 Ford Raptor is the ultimate tree-hugger vehicle. Because unlike a Prius, you can go out there & literally hug ALL the trees. Annnnd be back home in time for supper. No flaws here: This is the...

2017 Buick Encore

2017 Buick Encore

Let's be honest - the Buick Encore is a polished turd. A Chevy Trax with a makeover. It looks goofy on the outside (arguably a little ‘cute’ I guess). And the seating position is just as goofy on the inside. It’s like driving a car from your dining room chair.  ...

2017 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Review

2017 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Review

I’m going to quickly sum up the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta GLI.  As I mentioned before on the 2016 model….this is the best Jetta you can buy.  The other trim levels are just plain disappointing across all categories whereas the GLI is the redeemer.  The champ.  The...

2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Review

2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Review

When the KL Cherokee came out it left some members of the general public going ‘huh?’  It’s curvaceous styling stood in stark contrast to the literal box that was the previous Cherokees.  Fast forward a few years and it has turned into one of the most beautifully...

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT review

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT review

Can we all just take a moment, and tip our hats to the boys at Mopar. You don’t necessarily have to own a Mopar to be alive and be a fan of what these guys are doing. But it’s hard be a fan & NOT eventually want one. The ‘Mopar' just starts to sink in, and it’s...

2017 Mercedes Benz SL450 Review

Sometimes folks….you don’t need the bigger motor.  Hear me out before you start grabbing your pitchforks!  The twin turbo 6 on this 2017 Mercedes Benz SL450 is a pure gem.  It sounds like a V8 on startup, revs like it is a DC motor and has a torque curve as flat as...
