On April 1st (no Fools) Akio Toyoda will step down as Toyota’s CEO. Akio will stay on as chairman, and will be replaced by President of Lexus International, Koji Sato. Koji helped lead the GR brand, and seemingly shares many of the same core philosophies when it comes...

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...

2023 Honda Pilot TrailSport – sensibly capable

The Honda Pilot has gotten exactly what it needed… mainly to not be invisible. Honda chiseled the redesign of the 2023 Pilot, gave it some noticeable colors. AND more importantly, made a TrailSport model. The Pilot's TrailSport trim... Is honestly what’s bumped the...

Car Stereo needs a comeback

I don’t know about y’all, but I like the cars that go boom. And I've been feeling the need for a big-bad, ground-pounding stereo again. It used to be a staple of import car culture. Seems like a third of us worked at a car audio shop. Literally… it was like that. And...

Shell / Volta Theory – based off the LA streetcar Scandal

Here’s a juicy follow-up to yesterday’s news of Shell Oil’s purchase of Volta EV charging stations. Of course it’s totally gossip. But it’s a theory nonetheless, so let’s have some fun with it. Besides, a little conspiracy theory never hurt anyone these days. So here...

Shell Oil bought Volta – an EV charging company

Shell Oil bought Volta… an ‘American electric vehicle infrastructure company’... for a cool 169 million. Significance: An oil company bought a charging company. So obviously, Shell sees an EV-future on the horizon. But that doesn’t mean Shell sees ‘the writing on the...

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...

Hi Bird

Hi Bird

There’s something about an old, shoebox-sized import with new chrome & straight lines. The Datsun 510, the Mk1 Rabbit, the BMW 2002. I’d be willing to bet that damn near all of us have looked one of those up at one point or another – checking prices, checking the...

Waiting For A War

Waiting For A War

  From back issue No. 25 Humans are such silly little creatures.  And I say ‘creatures’ because that’s what we are.  Critters… animals… just keeping ourselves busy while we’re here… without much of a clue as to why.  Like a critter… we build a home for ourselves...

The Old and The Beautiful

The Old and The Beautiful

From back issue 25 There oughta be a word for a car like this. Or a phrase. Or a term. Hell – maybe there is a word/phrase/term for a car like this – and I just don’t know it. But… as a true car guy and culture guy, we all feel the same things when we see this. Run...

See To Feel

See To Feel

I’ve never considered myself to be much of an artist. But I always looked up to those kinds of people. I am a lover of art. And who knows… maybe that makes me appreciate it even more than the artist himself. After all - a woman is not overly fascinated with her own...

Chris Sims’ Del Sol

Chris Sims’ Del Sol

Chris Sims' Del Sol is a great example of what can be done with a little creativity. The turbo setup is off of a WRX. The roof wing is adapted from an EG Civic (Spoon style). The rear wing is an old universal touring-style wing that was in the back of the garage......

We Don’t Need Roads

...From backissue 24 When I say ‘Wagovan’, most of us all have the same exact picture pop up in our heads these days. We picture a Wagovan – slammed, stanced, fresh paint, with a bike rack, maybe a rusted hood, and a wood-grain steering wheel… sitting at Eibach or...

If you’ve picked up this magazine, you’ve probably got the tendency to want to screw with stuff - everything you get your hands on, in fact. It’s just what we do. It’s coded somewhere in our DNA. There is no rehab for it, so don’t even bother. Nothing, out of the box,...
