Houston’s Cars and Coffee has implemented a temporary ban on Mustangs, Chargers, and Camaros. And to be honest… I get it. Not saying I like it, but as someone who has organized events before… I. GET. IT. As the saying goes…  “The actions of the few, affect the many.”...

Acura TLX Aspec Review

First Impression:  WHOA!! Wait?! Could this be?? I have NEVER liked the TLX. At all. In fact - I’ve always been kind of mad at it. Since the TLX’s release, it’s been a pharmaceutical salesman’s company car at best. That’s because someone would only pick the TLX, if...
