What’s wrong with the Automotive Industry

You know what… yep… I’m gonna beat this dead horse one last time & then I’m done. I will never, ever understand why the new Toyota Supra is a BMW that doesn’t come with a manual transmission or targa top. It's impossible to wrap my head around it. Furthermore -...

Lifted Bronco Sport – Is it a Real Bronco?

The Bronco Sport isn't even a "real" Bronco... A lot of folks have been skeptical about the off-road capabilities of Ford's new Bronco Sport. I'll be the first to admit, I was a skeptic myself - was. That's until I got the opportunity to experience the Bronco Sport...

Can of Whoop RS

There’s always been something special about the way us car guys look at life... The way we envision the future, the way we calculate risk & investments, and the way we attack problems… all seem to bear the same color to us. When we find an old abandoned body, we...

We’re all working on ourselves as we journey through life. If we’re honest, we know what kind of person we’d like to be at our core... We know who the best version of ourselves is? The guy who has it all together, the guy who triumphs over adversity, the guy who sees...

It’s in the genes

In many ways, the appeal of pure Japanese tuners is very similar to the appeal of older American muscle... They’ve both got a generational fanbase… meaning they are both cemented into the youth culture of their time. And while these two genres of cars have got very...

People always ask 'what we’re looking for' in a feature car...  Relatability. That’s it... that’s the big secret lol.  Because to me, relatability has an energizing & encouraging affect. Relatability has more impact than perfection. Perfection is nice, but...
