Digital License Plates: Mama’s Top 5

California has its flaws, but being progressive is something we do well. Sure, we have no infrastructure, we're crippled by debt and you could rest a small continent in our economic divide, but we do lots of stuff before your state has even thought of it.  Case in point, the bill that passed in Sacramento this week for a digital license plate program.  According to lawmakers, they'll save at least $20 million in postage...

Dude Or Douchebag: Parking Jobs

Let's face it parking is complicated.  In fact, like other jobs that women have worked hard to master to please men, parking is hard and takes a lot of practice.  In fact in my own sweet-ass, luxury SUV that I can't afford, I'm spoiled– there is beeping, flashing red lights, a back up camera, even another camera that gives me a overhead snapshot of my parking perspective...

Holy Mother Of Saab

This Mother's Day, I'm appreciating the Motorhead Mamas in my family and how they made me the woman I am today. You see, I come from a long, proud line of sharp- tongued, red-blooded and lead-footed women. My grandmother once drove her pale pink Aries K up onto the sidewalk, proceeded to flatten a stop sign and immediately instructed us in the backseat to "quit your worrying."

Dear BMW Design Team

Full disclosure: I’m a Beemer fan. For about a decade now, I’ve been addicted to the slow morphine drip that is the Ultimate Driving Machine.  And good for you Bavaria, you’ve made great cars with amazing performance and a new car smell that I would spray behind my ears if I could.  But given the fact that I’ve poured my retirement account into your coffers,...
