Dear Vintage BMW Lovers, Your Day Is Coming

A friend of mine told me the other day that she wanted to buy a Vintage Porsche and I nearly bit her head off, “THEY’RE TOTALLY OVERPRICED. NO!

Top 4 Teen Driving Questions: Answered By A Pro (video)

When my older brother was a teen driver, my mother was a nervous wreck. For three years, she answered the phone like this.. “WHATHAPPENED?”  I kid you not.

I pity the fool that’s gonna try to date My Daughter.  Not because I’m a prude, over protective, will tend to stalk him or put a chip in his ear or anything (that’s my husband’s job), but because as a Motorhead Mama I’ve got some wacky car criteria.  First, that dumb ass better be a killer driver.  No stick? Dump.  No track experience? Eject. No...

Test Drive: East Coast Defender (video)

Or How To Love A Land Rover: Part Two, Defender. East Coast Defender is known to be the best Land Rover Defender builder in this country. But what does that mean anyway? They wrap it in fancy leather, slap their own badge on and mark the price up by 200%? Many would like to think that, but they’re not even close. As a former Defender...
