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?...

2016 Honda Civic Coupe Review

2016 Honda Civic Coupe Review

Honda enthusiasts have been let down for years, because the Civic had become just an appliance (excluding the SIs). Throughout the Civic’s prior history & DNA - sure - it had always been a sensible, reliable, & economical car. But it was ALSO nimble, fun, and...

2016 Lexus IS200t Review

2016 Lexus IS200t Review

In the never ending search for efficiency and power most luxury makes have been judicially replacing their entry level 6 cylinders for turbo 4s.  A turbo 4 can give you comparable level of horsepower but with more torque and better gas mileage.   Lexus was one of the...

2016 Volkswagen Jetta

2016 Volkswagen Jetta

Okay here is the thing with the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta.  It's one of the best bang for the buck deals out there.  It costs the same as its compact sized competitors but the Jetta is significantly larger...

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander GT

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander GT

With the way that Mitsubishi has fallen off the map, I was really hoping for more from this 2016 Outlander GT. They have been marketing the new Outlander GT heavily on TV, and I thought, “Hmmmm maybe this is the beginning of a bold & calculated comeback.” I wanted...

2016 Mazda3 Review

2016 Mazda3 Review

  OK - honest thoughts on the 2016 Mazda3 5-door: It’s a good car. The shape/design of the 5-door is understatedly sophisticated & slick compared to previous generations. It portrays a sense of motion, even when sitting still. The design is more interesting...

2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Review

2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Review

Quick spin in the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Limited Hybrid. Whats new for the 2016?  Revised front and rear facias with the obligatory LED running lights.  The interior is now adorned with a beautiful leather lined dash in some models and improved soft touch accents.  The...

2016 Camaro SS review

2016 Camaro SS review

  Look I’m going to be candid here - and criticize my own team. Before I drove the 2015 Mustang GT, I was not a Mustang guy. Before I drove this 2016 Camaro SS, I was definitely not a Camaro guy. I’ve grown up around imports, and until this point, I would have...

2016 Mazda CX-3 Review

2016 Mazda CX-3 Review

Zoom-Zoom.  It’s not just Mazda’s cute little marketing slogan.  Zoom-Zoom defines Mazda’s mindset when it comes to the automobile.   So what does it mean?  It means: "Let’s inject some fun into this".  That philosophy bleeds across all of their model range.  Fun...

2016 Mazda CX-5 2.5 Review

2016 Mazda CX-5 2.5 Review

The 2016 Mazda CX-5 is one crossover that stands out for being trim & lean… when a lot of the competitors tend to be uselessly bulky, over-designed, and over-chromed. If you’re in the market for a crossover, and you actually LIKE to drive, then the CX-5 is...
