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...

Ford Bronco – Better than Jeep?

The Ford Bronco gets compared to the Jeep Wrangler because has a lot of “Jeep features”. Meaning - it’s a square-bodied rugged 4x4 with a removable top & doors. Your hair blows in the wind, and your problems blow away. Both the Jeep and Bronco have a spirit &...

What’s Cooler Than Being Cool? Icelandic Cold! – Iceland 4×4

What’s Cooler Than Being Cool? Icelandic Cold! – Iceland 4×4

Text: Wooley // Photos: Jonathan Walker How much do you trust your own abilities? Really. Because every time you get behind the wheel of the car you’ve wrenched on yourself, you’re subliminally asking yourself that question. Do you trust yourself enough to get around town everyday? Yeah probably. But how ‘bout the track?

Honda Ridgeline Review

Honda Ridgeline Review

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline. I wanted to hate it, but then I drove it… and now I just want it. I hear people say that the new Honda Ridgeline isn’t a real truck. Before I drove it, I would have agreed. Now I’d say, define ‘truck’. Because here’s the bottom line: If you...

2017 Nissan Titan XD Review

2017 Nissan Titan XD Review

Let me introduce you to the very large 2017 Nissan Titan XD.  This truck is so good that it crosses party lines, smashes racial barriers and makes everyone your new best friend (at least in the South).  I was stopped every single day by someone asking about it.  Do...

2016 Lexus GS-F Review

2016 Lexus GS-F Review

The GSF is interesting, because it’s radical. But it’s also executive & gentlemanly. A wolf in sheep’s clothing. The car-guy in me wanted to jump out there & smugly hate it before I drove it. Why? Because I’m not a gentleman, and I was adamant that you can’t...

2016 Infiniti QX60 Review

2016 Infiniti QX60 Review

A three row crossover is a poorly designed minivan.  Yeah you heard me!  Hear me out.  A crossover is a SUV based on a car that has the added responsibility of looking like a truck first and carrying people second.  A minivan on the other hand is also based on car but...
