NYIAS 2016: The Top 7 ‘Say What?’ Moments

The New  York International Auto Show is weird in so many ways. First of all, it’s held at the one place in the United States where you really don’t need a car– NYC. That’s kind of like holding a bikini convention in the South Pole, or a porn convention in North Korea– actually scratch that last one, whatever, it’s weird. Second, it’s after Geneva, LA...

Petersen Automotive Museum + Kids + Mama

I recently took 4 kids: 3 boys and one girl to the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.  We were there to answer the following burning questions: *can kids truly be entertained at a museum? *will the partnership between Pixar & the Petersen fly with the little monsters? *is the Petersen’s remodel a hit or miss with the kids? *can Mama handle an entire day...

Fashions Of Pebble Beach: The Good, The Bad, The WTF

The Concourse D’Elegance at Pebble Beach is considered THE automotive event in the world.  It’s where billionaires fly in on their private jets and freeloaders like me try to sneak something on to their bar tab.  (don’t mind if I do…) Needless to say, the cars are insane.  I’ll tell you more about that later. Right now, it’s all about the humans. More specifically, what...
