Girl, What Chu Drivin? Range Rover Sport HSE TD6

Once again, me and my pal Melanie Batenchuk team up to review the new Range Rover Sport HSE TD6.  This, my friends, is the diesel SUV we’ve all been waiting for.  Think about it, all smart trucks are what?

Rainy Day Retards: Why Angelinos Can’t Drive Wet

Here in LA, our traffic goes from annoying to unbearable the minute anything wet falls from the sky.  People panic, cars crash and any upcoming obligation you have just went from a few hours to a whole day because of one simple thing: Angelinos can’t drive in the rain.
