California Dreamin’… of the Past

There was a time when California was the ultimate playground for car enthusiasts. The canyons & picturesque coastal routes made it a haven for anyone who loved the open road. From the legendary routes along Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), to the adrenaline-pumping...

K-Swapped RA1 Honda Odyssey – slam the minivan

This is a 1st generation RA1 Honda Odyssey - radicalized. And here’s the thing about a modified minivan like this. Beneath the sheet metal and all the oddball awesomeness - it’s a totally epic conversation starter. An 'icebreaker' anywhere it travels. See, this Honda...

VW Rabbit Pickup – Nothing Amazing

“It’s nothing amazing, but it looks cool.” That’s how Eric Garrison describes his daily-driven 1981 VW Rabbit pickup (aka Caddy). And you know what? A lot of people don’t realize the full truth & wisdom of that statement. Because the truth is, "nothing amazing,...

BMW 2002 – Family Ties

Old vehicles have a way of capturing moments in time & bottling-up vivid memories & nostalgia. They have a way of transcending their mechanical/utilitarian nature, and becoming sentimental family heirlooms… passed down through generations. Such is the case...

Stand-up Jet Ski – new vs old?

I got into stand-up jet skis 3 years ago. No, I can’t do flips, I’m by no means a pro, and I’m not an OG in this world. But I’ve spent my life around visceral cars (mostly of the 80s & 90s), I’ve run an automotive magazine for 18 years, and I’m very in touch with...

Ford Maverick – You Can be my Wingman Anytime

Ford Maverick understands its mission. The modern truck market has gone off the rails in size & in price. And the Ford Maverick returns as an economical, versatile, usable entry-point back into the truck segment. But there’s MORE to the Maverick than that. Call it...

Supercharged S550 Mustang – Prosport boost gauge install

Mike bought this S550 Mustang GT brand new in 2017 for $27,000. I’m not done. He also got it with 0% financing on a 6-year loan. The same GT today would cost you something like $50,000 with 7% interest lol. RIP affordable/impulsive/fun cars. Anyway lol - this article...

Ecoboost Miata – 490hp out of a $1,200 junkyard Explorer motor

Ford had such a good thing going with their ST & RS platforms. If you got exposed to it, it was hard not to get sucked in. Because the ST/RS stuff embodied a lot of that intangible, indescribable, infectious hot-hatch energy that's often lost in new cars. They...

New BMW M5 – the plot is lost

The new 2025 BMW M5 is (arguably) another massacre from an enthusiast’s and/or purist’s point of view. But here’s the thing: Don’t blame BMW. Well, do blame BMW. But also blame these governments around the world who are making asinine decisions for the sake of “the...

Road construction techniques used overseas – could it work here?

As the son of a civil engineer, I’ve always been curious about road construction, especially when driving through snowy regions or urban jungles. Recently I delved into road construction techniques & practices used overseas and wondered: Could these methods work...

Formula D Road Atlanta 2018: The Quinceñera

Formula D Road Atlanta 2018: The Quinceñera

First off, you've seen the big XV tag along the Formula Drift name this season: this is FD's 15th year since it's inaugural season. That's 15 hot years of sponsorships and vibrant liveries sliding across tracks around the nation. That's hundreds of barrels of fuel...

Tundra Double Cab TRD 4×4 review

Tundra Double Cab TRD 4×4 review

The Tundra is one of those can’t explain it trucks. Meaning - I can’t really explain why I like this particular truck so much, or why I got so attached to it. I think a lot of Tundra owners can probably relate. It’s like a dog that just follows you home & becomes...

Import Showdown

Import Showdown

Guys guy guys. I know import drag racing might have fallen out of the limelight a bit over the last errrrr 15 years. But let's look back over that slumpy time period. Can you honestly say the import culture is in a better place without drag racing at it core?...

Eibach Meet and Track Attack 2018

Eibach meet 2018. For those of you who have heard about it, it's surreal to hear that title and those numbers come together. For those of you who have never heard of it, it's only getting bigger: so pay attention.     (Cue historical harpsichord music) The...

Lexus LC500 review

As car enthusiasts, a lot of us tend to sing our praises (and/or criticisms) of a new car with a self-centered perspective. To make it worse, we tend to be pretty hard-headed & adamant about it. And to make it even worse than that… most of us haven’t even 1st-hand...
