Bumper Stickers: Rear Window Into The Soul

I dunno who said, “Eyes Are The Window Into The Soul.” It was like Jesus, Shakespeare or Leonardo Di Vinci, maybe Leonardo Di Caprio, somebody important.  Anyway, that person was never stuck on La Cienega for 20 minutes waiting for the light to change while some d-bag in a Porsche pouted on his cell phone about blowing out his $500 tire.  Because if he was, he would know what I...

Only In LA: Car Fool Lane

New Yorkers are notorious for being a-holes behind the wheel.  Angelinos are notorious for being a-holes because of their wheels. In fact we have so many terrible cars, that they should have their own lane, parking spaces and support groups, because if being an a-hole isn’t a handicap, I dunno what is. Here are some examples of LA’s biggest Aholes : #1. Aholes Over Personalize Look it’s Simba, or Julie Taymor,...

Motorhead Drama

Dear Motorhead Mama, Finally my husband & I can afford to get a new car. But he’s dead set on a Honda Accord. While I respect his practicality, I’m not impressed. Or turned on. How can I convince him to get something…sexier? Dear Horny Honda Hater, I hear you lady. And while having money in the bank is certainly sexy, there’s no reason why your...

How To Enjoy A Car Show In 5 Steps

One of the great things about living in Southern California is that we have a lot of car shows. Recently, the great Peterson Automotive Museum organized a Ferrari Drive-In event in honor of Enzo Ferrari’s 100th birthday. And unlike Enzo’s past few birthdays, which I usually spend watching Scooby Doo re-runs & playing X Box with Michael Schumacher, this was really fun. As a veteran...
