Freak Of The Week: Jared Leto

When people outside of LA think of Angelinos, they assume we are used to seeing celebrities & their cars. They assume that while I’m stuck on PCH, I’m waving at Jennifer Anniston in her 911 Turbo and shortly after, high fiving Jay Leno as he passes me in a Ariel Atom. The truth is, in these parts, a simple rule applies: the more conspicuous the car,...

Tuesday Test Drive: Fiat 124 Spider Bites!

Oh shut up, I know it’s Friday. But I drove the Fiat 124 on Monday and we weren’t allowed to release reviews until today so here it is. And you’re gonna be glad I didn’t wait until next week, because this is a car that you need to know about. Fiat’s new 124 Spider is a car that everyone’s been excited to drive & here’s why:...

Dude, or Douchebag: ICON’s Jonathan Ward

Fundraisers. Who goes to that stuff anyway? Celebrities, heiresses and society people, people with too much money & time– not MY people.

We weren’t interested in a community, new friends or even a backyard crop of ganja.  But we...

Mama’s Movietime: Ford’s Le Mans Movies Rock

Until 2 years ago, I really couldn’t care less about the 24 Hours of Le Mans race.  I’m more of a Pebble Beach Concours de LeMons kind of girl, (see my coverage for Car Talk here). But a whole day of endurance racing in France? Who cares! Then Ford came along and rereleased one of my favorite all time super cars, the GT. In the process...

Dear Volvo, Talk Dirty To Me..

A heartfelt, vaguely pornographic love letter to the world’s leading luxury family car manufacturer probably wasn’t top of your “to read” list today, but for me, it is vital to write. Lemme tell you why. Volvo may have just nailed it again.  Just over a year ago, while I was whining about how they’ve lost their edge, their design sensibility and their enthusiasm for all...
