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...

As import enthusiasts, there’s a common tendency to complain about the lack of new prospect-cars on the market today. I can definitely lump myself in with this category of people. But maybe - just maybe, the problem is not with the new cars on the market today… maybe...

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...

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...

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...

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…...
