Ford continues to back off EV mandates – cut ’em slack?

A couple years ago in the peak of EV overhype, Ford was giving their dealerships a strong & mega-costly EV ultimatum. You can find that initial story here & the follow-ups & pushback here & here (or just keep reading for the Cliff's Notes). Now - it's...

Civic Type-R Review – always 10% better

I've been gushing over the FL5 Civic Type-R like Buddy the freaking Elf. “I’m in love, I’m in love, & I don’t care who knows it.” Yeah - the Civic Type-R is that good. All things considered, it might actually be the best. Here we go: A few years ago…  We had an...

MK3 GTI turbo – punch above your weight

Presenting Zeke Young’s Mk3 GTI turbo. Wait scratch that: This isn’t even a GTI technically. It’s a 1995 Volkswagen Golf Sport. But that’s kind of irrelevant at this point, because it’s been swapped with a 1.8T & mated to a Corrado G60 transmission with limited...

Celica GT-Four – Enthusiasts Make Enthusiasts

The Celica GT-Four is a cool car, no doubt. But for John Mamone, it’s honestly not about the car. It’s about the friendships. Interesting cars are just the common thread here… the glue. Yeah-yeah I know that sounds cliché. But when you break it down, it’s everything. ...

Cars at the Capitol – hosted by SEMA & PRI

I was recently given the opportunity to participate in the Cars At The Capitol event hosted by SEMA & PRI. My car, a 1995 3000GT Spyder (previously featured in S3) was included as part of a 9-vehicle display hosted on Capitol Hill. What an experience! This diverse...

Lincoln Nautilus – American Luxury Made in China

If you want a pampering, luxurious, tech-forward driving experience, the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus should be on your list. BUT... it's made in China. Maybe you care about that, maybe you don’t. But historically when you think “Lincoln” you tend to think premium American...

2016 Mazda Miata MX-5 Review

The MX-5 is quick enough to keep you 100% engaged, entertained, and smiling. While being just slow enough to keep you mostly on the right side of the law & out of trouble. In other words, you can keep your foot in it - a lot.
