6 Unbelievable Things I Did At The Track

I recently went to Willow Springs, a well-known, well-respected raceway here in So Cal for the Motor Press Guild‘s Track Days.  It is a two-day event where a group of automakers bring their vehicles to the track for auto journalists to drive. When the Steel Market Development Institute contacted me and asked if I’d cover it for them, and I responded, “Hell yeah!” So here’s...

Freak of the Week: Ultimate Jeep Dude

A week or so ago, I was invited to Calamigos Ranch in Malibu to drive some new Jeeps. Oh and yes that actually was as awesome as it sounds.  Because these weren’t just any Jeeps, there were some classics, a few prototypes plus..  the new Grand Cherokee SR/T (heart be still) and Summit (cue silk jumpsuit).

The roof racks! The side badge!  All perfectly legal. Yet from a mile away, between my dirty sunglasses and my screaming children, I panicked that I was in yet another speed...

Doggie Style: Oh My Dog

Hi guys! It’s me again, Gunner. Your friendly, car-loving dog. For the past few years, Mama has been less than generous about including me in her automotive adventures. Frankly, I think this is uncool. I have a lot of places I want to see and things I wanna do: So I’m home alone.. a lot. Apparently the humans thought I was “lonely” so they did something....
