Dear Volvo, You’re A Punk Ass Bitch…

…and I mean that in the nicest possible way. Here’s why: You used to be cool.  Remember that?  Remember when the people who drove a Volvo wagon were hippies, free thinkers, those that didn’t need to fit in? Remember when having a Volvo wagon had nothing to do with having kids? Remember when you had a sense of humor? Remember when you knew a little something about design? How did you...

Dude, or Douchebag: Roadside Safari

It all started with one, West Hollywood Zebra Douchebag.  Like most tragic tales do.  One afternoon, I spotted a crazy-looking zebra car parked in front of my office.  And it went a little somethin’ like this: So, of course, I ran out and paced around the thing, looking for some type of clue.  It must have a “Save The Zebras” magnet on the side or perhaps the driver side door would read...

Car Slut Confessions: A Man(ual) On The Side

Alright. You want the truth? I’m not satisfied at home. Nope, not even close. On the outside, it all looks perfect– I get all the action I want, with a real hottie, the type most women would kill for, but when it comes to giving me real joy, we just don’t connect.

The Motorhead Guide to Hawaii

As the fearless observer of what’s happening on the streets, I sometimes feel like it’s not fair for me to only cover the manicured boulevards of Beverly Hills or the magnificent roads of Malibu.

Here’s the thing about the Aloha State.  People who’ve never been there like to say ‘it’s too commercialized’, ‘too touristy’ or the latest:...

Freak of The Week: Beachside Van Man

I just spotted this fab Beachside Van Man: What the hell is that, you ask?   I have no idea.  But I know I’m lovin’ it, mainly because it represents everything that’s missing here on the Westside of LA.  It’s thrifty, it’s wacky and it doesn’t give two spark plugs about what you think. First of all, he’s got the homemade bull bars complete with lights and spirals. Like they say down...

Only In LA: Our Prius Playhouse Is Such Fun

It was recently announced that after 2 years of being the top selling car in California, the Toyota Prius has been knocked out of the #1 slot by the Honda Accord.  And, I’m not gonna lie, this makes me sad. Mainly because I’ve had so much fun Prius bashing.  It’s been such an easy target: a soulless, soundless, hatchback with about as much sex appeal as a naked Rob Ford selfie.  It’s been...
