Dear Saudi Women, Mama’s Heartfelt Advice

Dear Saudi Women, This is not a political blog. I am not writing this to make a statement. I am writing this because, well, I honestly just can’t stop thinking about you. I know I don’t really know you. I’ve never been to Saudi Arabia.  But I do know some Saudi women here in the US. They love their country. They are proud of their...

Dear Automakers, Dork Driving Is Real!

These days the automotive industry is filled with all kinds of glitz, glamour and big thinking. Autonomous driving! Car sharing! Nurburgring records! It’s all so very..impressive.  But something is missing. Something is wrong and I just couldn’t put my finger on it until today.  I was talking to my friend, Fadra Nally, about the weird cars we miss and it hit me– we are living...

NO!” Let’s face it, holding my tongue has never been my forte. (sorry Amy, love you!) But I’m astounded by the state of the vintage car market and how some vehicles (Porsches, Broncos, Land Cruisers and American...

Dear Volvo, Talk Dirty To Me..

A heartfelt, vaguely pornographic love letter to the world’s leading luxury family car manufacturer probably wasn’t top of your “to read” list today, but for me, it is vital to write. Lemme tell you why. Volvo may have just nailed it again.  Just over a year ago, while I was whining about how they’ve lost their edge, their design sensibility and their enthusiasm for all...
