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. But first, let’s review the best one I’ve seen in years: Oh I know..magnificent isn’t it? Yes,...

Freak Of The Week: Leopard De Ville

Please turn, please turn, please turn, you delicious 70s land yacht! These were the thoughts pumping through my brain as I saw this 1977 Sedan De Ville cruise down Ventura Boulevard. Happily for me (and you) we were both going to Trader Joe’s: Pretty hot right? Clean, shiny and oh, so wild! You ain’t seen nothing yet: From the upholstery inserts, to the throw pillow, to...

“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...

Freak of The Week: FrankenBeetle

Do you ever see something out of the corner of your eye and think, ‘Wait! What the hell was that? Was that real or just my imagination?’ ‘Nah, it couldn’t be.’ ‘But what if it was?’ This the game I’ve been playing with this car for 3 years: I’d see it often, but never in full view.
