Mazda 3 Turbo Sedan – Who does Number 3 work for?

The Mazda 3 Sedan is a strong vehicle that seems to get overlooked. It just doesn’t fit in. Here’s what I mean: The Mazda 3 Sedan doesn’t have the perceived status of something like a 3-series BMW or Audi. But it’s not a basic/generic appliance like a Kia or Nissan...

California Dreamin’… of the Past

There was a time when California was the ultimate playground for car enthusiasts. The canyons & picturesque coastal routes made it a haven for anyone who loved the open road. From the legendary routes along Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), to the adrenaline-pumping...

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...

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.

2016 Scion FRS AUTOMATIC??!!! review

When I first got in this 2016 FRS, and saw that it was an automatic, I was like... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yg2u_De8j5o But but but.... the FRS/86 auto does have a few tricks up it's sleeve. I literally never, not once even for a minute, drove the car in full...

Bottom line is: The 2016 Kia Sorento offers stylish design in a usable package - with that awesome 100,000 mile stress-free Kia warranty.  It's competitors may offer more room but it comes at the sacrifice of style and personality.  If you want something with panache...

If you’ve driven a newer Audi or Volkswagen, then the Audi A3 Quattro Cabriolet is exactly what you think it would be - with a top that comes down. It’s a play-toy for a sophisticated, cultured buyer. IE: someone who doesn’t put large drinks in the cupholders. The...

2016 Honda Civic Review

This is the 2016 Honda Civic, and we are going to get this out of the way first:  We hate the CVT transmission. It might be a decent tranny for a commuter. And it might technically keep the car right in the boost sweet-spot. But it sounds dumb & we don't like it....
