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?...

Lexus RX 450h review

There is a vehicle segment out there for 'mature ladies with money'. And the Lexus RX 450h absolutely hits the nail on the head lol. Notice: They even named it after a pharmacy. I kid, I kid. But for real, the RX 450h is dialed-in to perfection in that realm. It’s so...

This Means War: Terminator Cobra

This Means War: Terminator Cobra

(From S3 Magazine: Issue 58) I know a lot of y’all reading this magazine come from an import tuning background. But I also know those 'import vs domestic' lines blurred a long time ago because y’all V8 swap everything these days, break the rules, and generally get...

MK2 GTi drift car

This is Erin Sanford’s MK2 GTi drift car. It’s RWD, running a turbocharged Nissan KA24. Here’s the backstory on how it came to be.  The GTi actually belonged to me & my dad... At that point, it was still a regular FWD 16v GTi. And before us, a Georgia Tech student...

2022 Honda Civic Si Review

A little while back, I think I said something along the lines of "The 2022 Honda Civic Si looks like AIDs." Surly I couldn't have been that mean. But DANG you know what? I’ve gotta eat my words a little bit. And I will... eventually lol. It's ugly…Let’s get...

Mazda CX-9 review

I’ll be honest. Writing car reviews these days is challenging when everything is basically a white crossover with some sort of automatic transmission & oversized infotainment screen. But when it comes to the Mazda Cx-9 Signature... Where is the Mazda CX-9 stands...

The Good Old Haze // Simply great S13 Coupe

When drifting started to hit the US import scene in the early 2000s, it sent an even bigger surge through the already electric import culture. Yeah for a minute there, there was a real sweet spot where it all came together. There was so much energy. The cars were...
