Switzerland moving to ban EVs – True or False?

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?...

Simplicity in it’s rawest form.  That’s what the 2017 Toyota Tundra is all about.  It’s the ultimate Throwback Thursday.  When a truck would mean a big V8, big doors, big presence and a big exhaust.  When modern doodads take away from the experience rather than make...

2016 Lexus GS200t F-Sport Review

2016 Lexus GS200t F-Sport Review

Let’s get this out of the way first.  When Wooley drove the 2016 Lexus GS-F he fell in love.  He loved it so much that he categorically refused to let anyone else drive it.  He loved the power, the handling, the interior and the body.  It’s a car that rips and snarls...

2017 Volvo XC60 Review

2017 Volvo XC60 Review

Car makers are now tasked to desperately find fuel efficiency whenever and however they can.  The easiest way to accomplish that goal is to downsize the size of the motor then slap on a turbo and call it a day.  The problem with doing that is a phenomena called turbo...

Honda Ridgeline Review

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline. I wanted to hate it, but then I drove it… and now I just want it. I hear people say that the new Honda Ridgeline isn’t a real truck. Before I drove it, I would have agreed. Now I’d say, define ‘truck’. Because here’s the bottom line: If you...

Let me introduce you to the very large 2017 Nissan Titan XD.  This truck is so good that it crosses party lines, smashes racial barriers and makes everyone your new best friend (at least in the South).  I was stopped every single day by someone asking about it.  Do...
