MAZDA CX-50 2.5 TURBO PREMIUM PLUS review

Mazda quietly knocked it out of the park with the CX-50 2.5 Turbo. It might sound harsh, but I just didn't expect much. I mean - how much can you expect from another white crossover? And when I first drove the CX-50 2.5 Turbo, initially I didn’t feel anything...

The Hummer EV is a 9,000lb pile of shit

Can we officially call it? The Hummer EV is a 9,000lb pile of shit. And I don't intend on letting GM forget it either. But in fact, it’s not just GM. There have been 3 Big Three unforgivables in the past couple years. 1) Ford’s Mach E Mustang… a 4-door crossover EV...

Honeymoon destinations – in a 1970 Chevy C10

Oh great it's another cheesy love story... blah. Let me set the stage: Kelvin got his first real six-string, bought it at the five & dime. And Erica, she was just a small town girl, living in a lonely world. You get the picture right? High school sweethearts, high...

Corvette E-Ray – AWD, Hybrid, and poorly named

I was really trying to steer this article in a positive direction, but screw it, it goes where it goes. Chevrolet released details on the Corvette E-Ray. And all the automotive websites are saying the exact same things about it. You know… 'specs' & whatnot. But...
