Kids & Cars: What Will Gen Z Drive?

Kids & Cars. Who cares right? Just put ’em in the back seat, plug ’em into a device and hope they shut up. But kids know a lot more about cars than we give them credit for (see my Mini Motorhead Series).  This weekend, I went to the Alt Car Expo in Santa Monica to ask kids which cars were cool, which cars weren’t and...

Tuesday Test Drive: Find Your G-spot (..VW Golf that is)

Over the past two months, I’ve made it my mission to drive most versions of one of my favorite cars, the VW Golf. We all know that I’m a 911 freak, that the Volvo XC90 T8 is my jam and that I have dirty, dirty M3/M5 & X5m fantasies… but the Golf is just a great all around car. Where people get stuck is deciding...

Freak Of The Week: BEE STRONG

I have this really impossible friend.  For privacy’s sake, let’s call her “Facebook.” On the one hand, she’s always there for me with an inspirational quote, a note from an old friend or a mesmerizing cat video. On the other hand, she can be a braggy, condescending pain in the ass that makes me feel like my life blows.  But last week, my friend Facebook...

Dude Or Douchebag: Surf Transport 2015

It’s surf season in LA. Actually, it’s always surf season in LA.

Mini Motorhead Of The Month: Matteo

Last weekend in Pebble Beach, I fell in love.  It’s kind of hard to talk about well, because I’m married, because I’m a mother and because there’s kind of a dramatic age difference.  He’s a little short, has a bit of trouble with the English language and likes to call me “Poop” but that only makes him even more irresistible.  Oh and he’s in preschool:...

Fashions Of Pebble Beach: The Good, The Bad, The WTF

The Concourse D’Elegance at Pebble Beach is considered THE automotive event in the world.  It’s where billionaires fly in on their private jets and freeloaders like me try to sneak something on to their bar tab.  (don’t mind if I do…) Needless to say, the cars are insane.  I’ll tell you more about that later. Right now, it’s all about the humans. More specifically, what...
