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...

Southern Fried Freeride 2023

Southern Fried Freeride 2023

Southern Fried Freeride at Lake Allatoona. If you don't already know, it's a long weekend of non-stop STAND-UP JET SKI shenanigans. It draws people from all over the region, and it’s been going down since the early 2000s. Kind of like a proper summer send-off. The...

Fixed annoying leak in the Porsche 944 for $5

Fixed annoying leak in the Porsche 944 for $5

When it rained, water would leak in the passenger side of the Porsche 944. Who would've thought a $5 can of Flex Seal would actually fix it? NOPE, this is not a paid advertisement... just some good ol' redneck engineering lol. But hey, if it works it works....
