Kickin’ It Ole Skool– LA Stylie

Kickin’ It Ole Skool– LA Stylie

Take 1 part car culture, 2 parts sunshine and 3 parts of 11 out of 12 dry months a year and what do you get?  A car collectors dream world. This, dear reader, is the wonder of LA.  Sure, it’s probably better for your vehicle to be holed up in Phoenix or Tucson, where they have 11.75 dry months, but then ..where in God’s name...

Dude, Or Douchebag: Offroad Edition

Before I get too judgmental, let’s admit it, most of us have that SUVs just so we can see over the other SUVs. Not because we’re going rock hopping any day soon.  And lots of women wear padded bras, so I’m not going to come down TOO hard on you dudes that add lifts, lights, tents and other useless accessories for the city dweller.

It makes the black wheels work even better (they look...

Is That A Woody In Your Pocket?

Is That A Woody In Your Pocket?

I saw this Morris Mini Station Wagon this morning on Topanga Canyon Blvd in Topanga.  Great color, mint condition, totally sweet.  Then while’s she’s all business up front, there’s a party in back– and I’m not sure I like it: Did the Morris come out of the factory like that?  I dunno. I think it’s slightly weak. What say you, Mini fanatics?

It’s Giddyup Thursday in LA

It’s Giddyup Thursday in LA

Hi.  How’s it going?  Rainy in Boston I hear. Cold in New York.  Yeah, well, here in LA we’re calling it Giddyup Thursday because it’s 71, sunny and the Mustangs are out in full effect. I started my day at the gym (more on that later, the cars are sick), where I saw this little Philly Please excuse the crap photo. Then I head over...
