Civic Type-R Review – always 10% better

I've been gushing over the FL5 Civic Type-R like Buddy the freaking Elf. “I’m in love, I’m in love, & I don’t care who knows it.” Yeah - the Civic Type-R is that good. All things considered, it might actually be the best. Here we go: A few years ago…  We had an...

MK3 GTI turbo – punch above your weight

Presenting Zeke Young’s Mk3 GTI turbo. Wait scratch that: This isn’t even a GTI technically. It’s a 1995 Volkswagen Golf Sport. But that’s kind of irrelevant at this point, because it’s been swapped with a 1.8T & mated to a Corrado G60 transmission with limited...

Mustang Dark Horse Review – last pony standing

The Mustang Dark Horse: It’s wicked, it’s unruly, it’s the last pony standing… and the steering kinda stinks.  The allure of the modern Mustang… We’re in a time where modern technology has filled in the gaps of human skill & mastery. And honestly - it’s killed the...

DODGE CEO retires

Tim Kuniskis, CEO of DODGE (and Ram), is seeing himself out the damn door. It was a hell of a run & brotherhood salutes you. But in the woke world, apparently all good things must come to a flaccid end lol. Tim did the best anyone could. He fought for the Dodge...

Low & Wide OBS Silverado – on a Craftsman Truck Series chassis

Curious creativity. Or as the kids call it: FAFO. That’s what the hotrod spirit is REALLY all about. It’s not about conformity, fitting in, or following an influencer. Rather - it’s about handing over the keys to that curious/devious voice inside your head. And making...

Celica GT-Four – Enthusiasts Make Enthusiasts

The Celica GT-Four is a cool car, no doubt. But for John Mamone, it’s honestly not about the car. It’s about the friendships. Interesting cars are just the common thread here… the glue. Yeah-yeah I know that sounds cliché. But when you break it down, it’s everything. ...

Cars at the Capitol – hosted by SEMA & PRI

I was recently given the opportunity to participate in the Cars At The Capitol event hosted by SEMA & PRI. My car, a 1995 3000GT Spyder (previously featured in S3) was included as part of a 9-vehicle display hosted on Capitol Hill. What an experience! This diverse...

Lincoln Nautilus – American Luxury Made in China

If you want a pampering, luxurious, tech-forward driving experience, the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus should be on your list. BUT... it's made in China. Maybe you care about that, maybe you don’t. But historically when you think “Lincoln” you tend to think premium American...

Intelligent Speed Assist – Yeah No

  In a world increasingly governed by beeps & intervention... a new contender has emerged that threatens the very fabric & essence of driving freedom: Intelligent Speed Assist (ISA). You may have heard of it, it's the technological equivalent of someone...

Owning an Autozam AZ-1

Jade Richardson is a software engineer from California, and I’ll tell ya why that’s relevant. It’s relevant because even HE understands (*as a software engineer from California*) that all cars don’t need to drive like damn iPhones, Teslas, or automated tech support....

Shane Whalley’s LS Swapped Mustang

You don’t usually see the newer & current chassis built-out to this extent… at a privateer level. But Shane Whalley had a unique opportunity with this car, and he grabbed it straight by the balls.  This Mustang was originally a Coyote GT, and it was being used as...

Victory 4×4 Tacoma

Victory 4×4 Tacoma

Daryl Hutson here... from JCR Off-Road & Victory 4x4! I'm a Jeep guy. That means I 'wave back'. I think crossover SUVs are basically minivans, and I'm probably going to have an eclectic collection of rusting junk in my backyard one day. I blame my father for this...

James Wood’s FC Mazda RX7

Sucking At Something… is the first step towards being Sorta Good At Something.  I call up James Wood to talk about his RX-7. I ask him what he’s doing. And he says, “Working on my RX-7.” If you own an RX-7… are you ever really not working on it?  [gallery...

Bricknose F150 Barn Truck: Project

Bricknose F150 Barn Truck: Project

This was my wife’s grandfather’s truck. He bought it new in 1990. It was swiftly dubbed amongst the family as ‘Ford Country’… since it says Ford Country in that awesome font on the doors lol. Nevertheless, it was his favorite truck. He got a newer F150 one a little...

Sam Holzmann’s E30 BMW

When you part-out your daily running BMW E36 M3, so that you can put the engine in your BMW E30 drift car & use the extra money to boost it… you’ve got a lot of problems that's for sure. But a slow drift car ain’t one of ‘em ya feel me!! [gallery...

Derek Yarbrough’s NC Miata

Derek Yarbrough’s NC Miata

DOWNGRADE?? The NC MX-5 is an under-appreciated chassis in the Miata world. Kind of a “black sheep” if you will. I get that it’s kind of bulky-looking, & rounded-off like a sightly used bar of soap. But I think the main reality is: NCs aren’t cheap enough yet....
