Dude, Or Douchebag: Pickups Part II

As you may remember from Episode One of DODB Part One, I’m a pick up girl.  If you’re not, you’re simply not American and thus, a douchebag. So stop reading now. Now that we’ve weeded out the losers, let’s move on.  Let’s begin with the Dude: Lil’ Red Truck– in ’78 that was the fastest American car from 0 to 100mph.  Try saying that about your...

Dude Or Douchebag: Car Upholstery

Let's face it, car upholstery has had its ups (any Mercedes before 1975) and its downs (Levi's Edition Gremlin, anyone?). But lately, it just seems like we're settling for way less than our fat asses deserve.

Dude or Douchebag: Impala

The Chevy Impala is the people’s car in Los Angeles. It represents everything from the main ride in Boyz in the Hood to the main ride for the LAPD.  Now if that isn’t worlds apart, what is? So, naturally, we see all kinds of Impalas in Tinseltown. From the kinda Douchey: (please tell me green paint was on sale) To downright dope: (now that’s gettin’...

Dude Or Douchebag: Two-Tone

Sometimes car trends start with the exotics and trickle down to the streets, like carbon fiber hoods.  And sometimes car trends start with an 18-year-old & a can of bar-b-q black spray paint and the next thing you know Mercedes has a factory matte black finish.  I’ve noticed recently that the two toned vehicle is coming back, and it’s starting in the ‘hood.   The...
