Freak Of The Week: Plutonium Prius

Oh Prius. I know I tend to pick on you. But, let’s face it, you tend to bring it on yourself.  Like this little number recently spotted by a beloved Mini Motorhead in the valley: At first, you think ‘That’s cool. Green flames? Way to differentiate your Liberal-mobile!’  That’s a tall order in these parts.  But then you get a better look: Oh no!  This...

Dear Alfred, Be My Valentine

Alfa Romeo and I haven’t always been friends.  And we haven’t been lovers for very long. But this Valentine’s Day, if I get my way, we’re gonna park away from the street lights, tilt the seats way back and get to know one another much better.

How about Ferraris, Bugattis or the 1933 Duesenberg that cleaned up at Pebble Beach? I thought so…watch this:  

Car Slut Confessions: Pantera Perversion

When I was a tween, I was an avid babysitter.  It seemed like a total racket, all I did was play with other people’s kids, eat their food and they gave me cold hard cash!  It was awesome.   There was this one family, however, that had 5 high strung kids where you really had to work for it.  But the first time I sat...
