VB WRX – Make Your Own STI

The VB Subaru WRX offers a really strong performance value, especially today when value of any kind seems hard to find in the new car market. For instance, at 30-grand, you can get a turbocharged AWD WRX with a manual transmission… with enough room for a bike rack on...

Bronco Sport – Is it Worthy?

Reality is - the Bronco Sport will always live in the full-size Bronco’s shadows. But let’s get that out of our heads for the moment & critique it on its own merit. Because if the Bronco Sport is nothing else, at minimum it's a departure from yet another generic...

Mazda 3 Turbo Sedan – Who does Number 3 work for?

The Mazda 3 Sedan is a strong vehicle that seems to get overlooked. It just doesn’t fit in. Here’s what I mean: The Mazda 3 Sedan doesn’t have the perceived status of something like a 3-series BMW or Audi. But it’s not a basic/generic appliance like a Kia or Nissan...

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

LS-swapped, turbocharged 3000GT… w/ fogs!!

The LS engine. It’s kind of the final destination isn’t it. I see it a lot in my sick & twisted line of work: If you keep any one car long enough… and you keep kicking that can down the road far enough… eventually it bumps up against an LS swap & comes to...
