Test Drive 2018 Nissan 370Z Heritage Edition: Old Skool Is Cool

When the 370Z Heritage Edition was announced, Jalopnik responded with this headline, “The 370Z Heritage Edition Is A Reminder That Nissan Still Doesn’t Give A Sh*t About Affordable Sports Cars” which is hilarious. I read the article, laughed out loud and agreed.  We want a fun, new, exciting MX-5 contender from Nissan, dammit!  But then I drove it and realized…Jalopnik missed the point. This is a...

Test Drive: Aston Martin DB11, I Could’ve Had A V8!

If you saw my review of the V12 DB11, you know that I’m more than mildly obsessed with this car. It is simply one of the most extraordinary vehicles on the road today.  Aware that they’ve got a winner on their hands, Aston Martin has announced two new variants– the DB11 V8 Valante Convertible & the V8 Coupe.  Thanks to my ridiculous good fortune, I...

Or my beloved Big Gay Prius (& fellow Freak of the Week alum, read it here): Lovin’ you from here, pal. But just last week,...

I know I don’t really know you. I’ve never been to Saudi Arabia.  But I do know some Saudi women here in the US. They love their country. They are proud of their...

Only In LA: The Art of the Lowrider

What kind of idiot wakes up early on a Sunday morning to go to a museum? This idiot, why thank you. My motivation wasn’t to head to any old museum, I was off to the Petersen Automotive Museum– Los Angeles’ answer to an automotive temple of worship. For the past few years, the Pete has been hosting a series of themed cruise ins, which attract...
