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...

The deadline is here – who will sell Ford EVs?

In mid-September, Ford announced that all Ford dealerships had until Halloween to decide if they wanted to become ‘EV Certified’. The giant stipulation was - it would cost each Ford dealer roughly $500,000 or $1,200,000… depending on if they wanted to be Tier-1 or...

Josh Freeman’s Toyota Chaser

Incremental Improvements With The 987

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?...

VIP Nissan Cima – Well ok then

If we’re being honest here, I’ve always had a hard time understanding the why behind VIP cars. Coincidentally so has Alexander Richards. Alex & I are both naturally drawn to agile/quick cars. You know… rippers! Yet having said that, here we are, looking at Alex's...

Pssst… a Miata would’ve been better

Pssst… a Miata would’ve been better

...But who cares. How long has it been since you loved something... just because? Where have the days gone, when something was super-cool… just because it was. When you didn’t overthink it… and you didn’t have to justify it or rationalize it? When was the last time...

Mazda MX-5 review

Back in 2019, the Mazda MX-5 got a 26hp increase... from 155 to 181. It also went up to a 7,500 redline. And honestly, it's perfection. If you understand the attraction of the Mazda Miata... Then you understand the power bump back in 2019 put the MX-5 exactly where it...

I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but c'mon... The new Lexus IS 350 F Sport is stunning! It looks good from any angle. See - a lot of vehicles these days start with a strong grille & headlights... and then lose all sense of hope, shape, and design...

It’s bobsled time! – bagged Lexus SC

It’s bobsled time! – bagged Lexus SC

Since Mike Keckster was a kid, he loved the ultra-smooth design of the Lexus SC. And he’s not wrong. I’ve got a few years on him, and I was about 11 or 12 when the Lexus SC originally came out. At that time in the early 90s, there were a lot of significant &...
