Switzerland moving to ban EVs – True or False?

There is a screenshot from Fox News going around on social media. Its saying that Switzerland is moving to ban EVs. That seemed a little suspect… so we looked into it. Turns out - Switzerland government officials are considering a possible ban for nonessential...

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?...

Unleash the Furry

Unleash the Furry

We’re all guilty of it: whether it be on an online forum , a local meet, or a photo blog, we have seen a unique—and often times ‘functionless’— piece of flair or style that makes its way into our daily automobile musings. It shows up in the fictional scenarios in our...

Sikky Faction

The hobby of modifying cars is a quick and sure way to make sure that you can live your life one paycheck at a time, as well as having no free time away from your garage, and no girlfriend. Now, if we take it one step further and talk about auto racing at a...

Shoop!

Shoop!

When I look at the newer KDM scene. I can’t help but be reminded of the early days of the Honda scene. Everything was new, unchartered territory. In the mid 90’s, if you had a 2-inch drop and a set of 17s, spark plug wires, an intake, and some NOPI rainbow bulbs, you...

Welcome to The System

Welcome to The System

This world of professional top-tier drifting is an increasingly corporatized sport. The question is, how do you mesh the roots culture of drifting - which at its core is so anti-establishment, rebellious, illegal, and anti-corporate...how do you mesh that , with the...

Jon Johnny Angel

Here is a quick way to tell if you're cool. It’s not the only way but it is one quick test. Here it is: You buy aftermarket parts for a car that you don’t even own yet. Have you done it? If so, I’d like to extend my congratulations... Purchase Issue 24 here to read...

Yo Corrado!

I’ve known yo for over 10 years now… and his attention to detail has always astonished me. It always has. It actually makes me feel like crap about myself haha. Because i’m just more of a “fix it with a sticker or a ziptie and worry about it later” sorta dude....

Rust Bucket

You’ve probably heard the people say, “With age comes wisdom”. But that’s not totally the point… It’s probably a little more accurate to say, “With experience comes wisdom”. Age has a lot to do with it, but that’s only because you’ve had more time to gain experience…...

Roads? Where we’re going…we don’t need roads

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 woodgrain steering wheel… sitting at Eibach or Import Alliance. Shit –...
