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...

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?...
