Pimp My Ride, Hippie Edition

Pimp My Ride, Hippie Edition

For many of you, a hippie is the guy with the peace sign on the back of his Toyota: And to him I say, yawn.  Come on, man.  Here in California, we’ve got real, live hippies. The ones that have hairy legs, consider pot a food group and still wonder if Jerry’s really dead.  Here in LA, hippies still have to drive– so every once...

Together In Perfect Harmony?

Together In Perfect Harmony?

That’s right, take a minute– you know you want to. “Side by side on my piano, keyboard, Oh Lord…” Yeah well, now we can get down to it– Ebony & Ivory.  Seems to be the latest trend in car pimping in LA: It’s hard to mess up a CL63, but I actually really like this. It makes the black wheels work even better (they look...

Is That A Woody In Your Pocket?

Is That A Woody In Your Pocket?

I saw this Morris Mini Station Wagon this morning on Topanga Canyon Blvd in Topanga.  Great color, mint condition, totally sweet.  Then while’s she’s all business up front, there’s a party in back– and I’m not sure I like it: Did the Morris come out of the factory like that?  I dunno.

I started my day at the gym (more on that later, the cars are sick), where I saw this little Philly Please excuse the crap photo. Then I head over...

Dude, Or Douchebag: Wheels

Dude, Or Douchebag: Wheels

You know how some women look at a man’s shoes to figure out if he’s cool?  Yeah, if that’s new information to you, fellas, you may reconsider those Topsiders. I’ll admit, I do about the same thing with wheels. You may not have a lot of dough, maybe you have a white SUV because that’s what you’ve had for ages.  And then you do this...

Only In LA: Can’t Use My Legs, But I’m Drivin’ The Bentley Today!

Only In LA: Can’t Use My Legs, But I’m Drivin’ The Bentley Today!

I’m hard pressed to find something more egrigious than stuff like this: A nice, big fat Bentley parked in a Beverly Hills lot with a handicapped placard on.  Now, I’m sure that there are plenty of rich, handicapped dudes but I’m betting that if you’re rich and you truly have a disability, you either drive something whose main purpose to keep you safe and assist...
