Only In LA: Porsche Orgy In Woodland Hills!

I need not tell you that Los Angeles is filled with Porsches.  It’s pretty much common knowledge. While some find this “ridiculous”, “indulgent” or “offensive”, I have a different word for it. It’s AWESOME. Lemme tell you why.  Here, especially on the West Side of LA, driving a Porsche is kind of normal — as weird as that sounds.  For those of us with Stuttgart dreams,...

Doggie Style: 2017 Nissan Titan

Hi guys! It’s me Gunner, your friendly canine car enthusiast.  I’m here to remind you humans that doggies don’t want to stay home.  We want to go with you, to ride along, to be a part of the action!  As my friend Tiffany says “If I wanted to be a watch dog, I wouldn’t be so beautiful!” I feel you, girl.

You’ll read all about that later. Right now, this is...

Five Minutes In..Frankfurt (video)

Frankfurt, Germany is about 6,000 miles from LA.  As you guys know, I’ll go anywhere for kick ass car spotting.  To be honest, I was in Germany to  attend the Automechanika show– which was a ball.  But I’ll tell you all about that later.  First and foremost, I can’t wait for you to see what happened when I ran around the city looking for Frankfurter car culture....
