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

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...

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...

Code Brown – 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera

Text: Wooley  //  Photos: Jason Scott One of the many things that make the Porsche 911 cool - is that they’ve always been a little raw around the edges. It’s not about the price tag. You don’t flash ‘em like a designer watch. Yeah sure, they’re pretty enough, but...
