Freak Of The Week: PCH Cabin Porn

As predicted in my last post (Pray For Rain), our incredible Los Angeles Rain Fest 2017 continues. It was fun for a while, but after the Netflix queue is caught up and you’ve eaten your bodyweight in Pirate Booty, a girl’s gotta get outside! So during a recent gap between deluges, I headed down to the beach to reacquaint myself with salt water when what to my...

Freak Of The Week: Big, Black & Bedazzled!

“Women aren’t into cars,” they tell me. “My wife really just wants to get from Point A to Point B,” they say. “She’s perfectly happy in her (Prius, crappy mini van, lame ass Accord, fill in a nightmare ride),” I’ve heard it all.

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

Although the police stopped using the Ford Crown Vic over 5 years ago, my heart still skips a beat when I see one. Case in point, this doozy I spotted yesterday in Malibu: Those lights! The roof racks! The side badge!  All perfectly legal. Yet from a mile away, between my dirty sunglasses and my screaming children, I panicked that I was in yet another speed...

Freak Of The Week: Torino Wagon

A few weeks ago, I traveled to the Hamptons to drive the new Volvo S90.  Watch my video recap here. The Hamptons is a lot like LA in the following ways: a) there are tons of rich people b) the cars are ridiculous c) no one is supposed to care Enter Motorhead Mama, the golden retriever of the car world– blonde, energetic and unmistakably excitable.
