Only In LA: Battle Of The Bad Woody

The other day I was driving around avoiding my parental responsibilities, when I spotted this terrible, awful, fake Woody in a Sprouts parking lot in the valley: Now I’m not saying that covering your Econoline van in an artificial wood wrap is a bad idea.  But I then I walked around to the back: Now I am absolutely saying that wrapping your van in artificial wood...

Tesla Model X’s Got Some Serious, Politically Incorrect Problems

The other day, I finally saw the highly anticipated Tesla Model X on the road.  Yay! But it kinda sucked. Boo!

Car Slut Confessions: Ford GT Is The Man (& Le Mans too)

Last year, I went to the Detroit Auto Show for the very first time.  You can see the video about it here. At one point, I was invited to a big press conference by Ford.  Ok, I thought, let’s see a new boring mid-sized suv.  I sat there, with the lights low, the blue oval prominently in front of me and as the talking heads finished...
