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...

Girl, What Chu Drivin? Range Rover Sport HSE TD6

Once again, me and my pal Melanie Batenchuk team up to review the new Range Rover Sport HSE TD6.  This, my friends, is the diesel SUV we’ve all been waiting for.  Think about it, all smart trucks are what? Diesel. And an SUV is really a..yeah, you got it. But in all of this time, the ultimate luxury SUV has never been available in a...

LA’s Hottest New Valet Line (& It’s In The Valley!)

The San Fernando Valley is, as my husband so eloquently describes it, ‘The asshole of LA.’  Only a few people really like to go there, it sure ain’t pretty and, you guessed it, it smells like ass.  However, thanks to Los Angeles’ housing crisis, places like The Valley are newly appealing– the swamp of Playa Vista is now a Millennial Playground, the formerly heroin-infested Downtown...

A few months ago, I was driving in the valley when my daughter whispered in an ominous tone, ‘Mom, you’re gonna wanna see this..” like she had seen something scary like Godzilla or a bare-faced Kardashian.   And there, parked along Topanga Canyon there was the Jettamino. It is, in fact, exactly what it sounds like– a Palomino pony driving a VW Jetta. Just kidding, it’s...

I Saw Our Bright Future In NY! (& It Wasn’t A Tesla)

The other day, another automotive ‘professional’ said to me, “I worry we’re all going to be driving automonous cars in the future and that’ll be the end of cars as we know them (frowny face).”  And, right on cue,  I lost it. I went on a rampage on how in modern times, new drivers have entered the automotive space and that has made it much more...
