The Weirdest Cars I’ve Seen Lately (video)

We both know that means a lot 😂 because I see some crazy stuff here in LA.  But maybe what you don’t know is that I have an arsenal of friends who travel and keep an eye out, a posse of Mini Motorheads sending me cool stuff and readers like you, that share with me the glorious, the goofy and Godawful.

Mama’s Car Stories: ICON’s Jonathan Ward

First Date: 2018 Ford Expedition, Platinum Edition

It may not be a politically correct thing to say, especially in So Cal, but I love me a big, luxurious, family car. The Ford Expedition is one of those vehicles. Not only can you go to Trader Joes, Target AND Costco, but you can put all kinds of annoying kids in the back and drive along without killing even a one. With the layout...
