We’re trained to measure the value of things with dollars... but don’t do that. Train yourself to break free from that thought-process a little bit… ESPECIALLY when it comes to passion-driven objects like this widebody Porsche 911 Cabriolet. Instead of measuring a...

Automotive Journalism is Dead – MotorTrend helped Kill it

This article from MotorTrend exemplifies why mainstream automotive journalism is dead. The article is supposed to cover a flagship C8 Corvette Z06… but it barely even touches on that topic. Instead, MotorTrend lectures us on climate change. Claims are vague &...

What happened to Junkyards?

How to Train Your Wagon

How to Train Your Wagon

Subarus man. The lovable, lobey oddballs. Yeah sometimes they need a little help, or a nudge to get over those initial performance limitations. But admit it - these cars have a quirky, all-the-sudden-infectious personality about them. And it’s funny that Subaru always...
