Test Drive: Aston Martin DB11, I Could’ve Had A V8!

If you saw my review of the V12 DB11, you know that I’m more than mildly obsessed with this car. It is simply one of the most extraordinary vehicles on the road today.  Aware that they’ve got a winner on their hands, Aston Martin has announced two new variants– the DB11 V8 Valante Convertible & the V8 Coupe.  Thanks to my ridiculous good fortune, I...

Test Drive: 2017 Nissan TITAN V8 Meets A Lazy Horse

Why would I, Motorhead Mama, car snob and carpool drag racer, want to review a truck? Well, my husband is an insufferable truck dude and thus I’ve always had a pickup in my driveway, one way or another. And secretly, I dig them.

Motorhead Mystery: Trading an M3 for a Fiesta ST

So my friend Jesse recently traded his BMW M3 for a Ford Fiesta ST.  This upset me, a lot. Sure, the Fiesta is supposed to be a great car..for the money. I wrote an article about it for Driving Line which made me realize what a little rocket ship it really is. And the BMW is expensive to register, insure and repair.  And the M3...

Chevy Equinox Test Drive: Or How To Melt A Teenager

It started, like any other experience with my teenage daughter, with an epic eye roll. “OMG, that color.” A Chevy Equinox had just been delivered to our house for a test drive and this ungrateful little brat has the gall to criticize its shade of orange (???!!!!)  I pondered how much I could get for her on Ebay, but then reconsidered, because they probably don’t...
