VW Rabbit Pickup – Nothing Amazing

“It’s nothing amazing, but it looks cool.” That’s how Eric Garrison describes his daily-driven 1981 VW Rabbit pickup (aka Caddy). And you know what? A lot of people don’t realize the full truth & wisdom of that statement. Because the truth is, "nothing amazing,...

BMW 2002 – Family Ties

Old vehicles have a way of capturing moments in time & bottling-up vivid memories & nostalgia. They have a way of transcending their mechanical/utilitarian nature, and becoming sentimental family heirlooms… passed down through generations. Such is the case...

Stand-up Jet Ski – new vs old?

I got into stand-up jet skis 3 years ago. No, I can’t do flips, I’m by no means a pro, and I’m not an OG in this world. But I’ve spent my life around visceral cars (mostly of the 80s & 90s), I’ve run an automotive magazine for 18 years, and I’m very in touch with...

Ford Maverick – You Can be my Wingman Anytime

Ford Maverick understands its mission. The modern truck market has gone off the rails in size & in price. And the Ford Maverick returns as an economical, versatile, usable entry-point back into the truck segment. But there’s MORE to the Maverick than that. Call it...

Supercharged S550 Mustang – Prosport boost gauge install

Mike bought this S550 Mustang GT brand new in 2017 for $27,000. I’m not done. He also got it with 0% financing on a 6-year loan. The same GT today would cost you something like $50,000 with 7% interest lol. RIP affordable/impulsive/fun cars. Anyway lol - this article...

Ecoboost Miata – 490hp out of a $1,200 junkyard Explorer motor

Ford had such a good thing going with their ST & RS platforms. If you got exposed to it, it was hard not to get sucked in. Because the ST/RS stuff embodied a lot of that intangible, indescribable, infectious hot-hatch energy that's often lost in new cars. They...

New BMW M5 – the plot is lost

The new 2025 BMW M5 is (arguably) another massacre from an enthusiast’s and/or purist’s point of view. But here’s the thing: Don’t blame BMW. Well, do blame BMW. But also blame these governments around the world who are making asinine decisions for the sake of “the...

Road construction techniques used overseas – could it work here?

As the son of a civil engineer, I’ve always been curious about road construction, especially when driving through snowy regions or urban jungles. Recently I delved into road construction techniques & practices used overseas and wondered: Could these methods work...

Ford Bronco – Better than Jeep?

The Ford Bronco gets compared to the Jeep Wrangler because has a lot of “Jeep features”. Meaning - it’s a square-bodied rugged 4x4 with a removable top & doors. Your hair blows in the wind, and your problems blow away. Both the Jeep and Bronco have a spirit &...

Acura Integra Type-S – totally redeem yourself!

It’s hard to talk about the Acura Integra Type-S without comparing it to the Honda Civic Type-R. But I’m gonna try and not to do that too much… because it’s not fair to make one brother live in the other brother’s shadow. That being said: If you want to read our FL5...

Getting the 944 to start

I bought this Porsche 944 sight unseen from my buddy Elliott Grafton - owner of 944 Barn. As mentioned in the first Project 944 post, we have no real background info on this car. Elliott doesn't know when it last ran, or what ultimately took it off the street, etc....

Real A90 Supra Feels

Real A90 Supra Feels

Hey Garrett, how does the A90 Supra feel, once you start throwing mods it? People really bashed the A90 Toyota Supra heavy when they saw the collaboration with BMW. Obviously - I’ve owned my fair share of Japanese cars, and I tend to lean towards the Japanese cars due...

Project Porsche 944

Project Porsche 944

So like a big idiot lol... I took my own advice from my previous rising Porsche 944 values article, and bought this Ruby Red Porsche 944. But instead of being wise & buying a clean, low mileage example of a 944, my A.D.D. kicked in... and I impulsively bought the...

The perfect S2000

The perfect S2000

The S2000 was ‘the Honda of all Hondas’ in Matt Jensen's opinion. The S2000 drove like no other, so pure-to-concept, and it's so great in so many aspects. The funny thing is, Matt Jensen couldn’t even drive a stick when he first bought this car! Yet he took the plunge...

Turbo Diesel swapped Chevy C10

Turbo Diesel swapped Chevy C10

Justin Chappelle was at the bar with his buddy BS’ing around with the idea of swapping a turbo-diesel engine into a regular 80s/90s square-bodied truck... Typical car guy bar talk. Anything ‘Cummins’ was super lame (Justin’s words). And theoretically, while the Ford...
