Freak of the Week: Wolfman Jimmy

There’s a truck parked in my neighborhood that my dog Gunner likes to pee on. Don’t believe me? Here’s Gunner in the left side of the photo..approaching his target: But who can blame him. Especially because the object of his affection is this magnificent GMC Jimmy +Homegrown trailer + Campershell combo. Here’s a better look: Yes that’s a chopped off truck bed. And yes, both...

Freak Of The Week: G Wagon Mic Drop

A G Wagon. Or G Wagen. Whatever.  In other parts of the world, this is considered an exclusive, rarified, even special vehicle. But this is LA people, and like it or not, we are in the midst of a G Wagon epidemic. I’ll write more about that later.

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. But I just don’t buy it. You know who else doesn’t buy it? The chic driving this masterpiece: I saw this car on...
