Dude or Dbag: The Outfits Of SEMA

SEMA is an amazing show. Literally over 1 million square feet of awe & wonder– this annual Vegas event is filled with custom cars, aftermarket parts, wheels, tires and the like. Between the jaw-dropping cars, the crazy booths and the freaky people, it is fantastic. The outfits are equally, if not more, entertaining. Let’s start with the basic dress code: If you’re at the SEMA...

Freak of the Week: The Prius Poser

Here’s a headscratcher for ya: When is a Prius lamer than..a Prius? When it’s custom? Nah. I’m down with that.

Particularly in this town. So along comes this Swedish station wagon & most of my gearhead pals look away. Even worse, they give me that, “Maybe for you, because...

Dude, Or Douchebag: 4×4 Dad Van

Being a father in Los Angeles is not for the faint of heart. While women have to worry about boob jobs, Botox, vaginal rejuvenation & how many times their kids will need rehab, LA dads don’t really get off easily either.  First of all, it’s virtually impossible to be special. Your father’s famous? Big deal, so is Siri’s. Rich? Right, tell that to that the...
