How You Doin’, El Camino?

It’s happened to all of us.  Somewhere random, like a grocery store, restaurant or gym, you get confronted by someone– someone mysteriously attractive– claiming that they know you from high school. “It’s me, Danny! From the computer lab?” and you think to yourself ‘no way!’ that dude was such a dork in high school!  How did he turn into… a hottie? How did I miss...

Supercar Sunday

It's an American institution!  Madonna's gonna be there! There's a zip line! However much the hype, I just can't get into Superbowl Sunday.  I'll tell you what I CAN get into– SuperCAR Sunday. This fantastic thing happens every Sunday, in the Macy's parking lot in Woodland Hills. Sure it sounds completely unsexy, but unlike a lot of the other So Cal automotive gatherings (Mini dudes in...

Dude, Or Douchebag: Attention Seekers

Here in La La Land, driving a fancy car is no big thang.  Buy yourself a G wagon and guess what’ll happen? You’ll park somewhere in West Hollywood next to another G wagon: Doh!

In New York, geeks are revered– people actually care where you...

Dude Or Douchebag: Doggie Style

Dogs rule LA. No joke.  Runyon Canyon has concurrently the best dog walking AND the best star spotting; adopting mutts has replaced adopting African babies and PETA meetings have displaced AA as the hot industry networking destination.  That’s cool, Mama loves me some dogs.  Especially like this: This is one happy animal– his driver is clearly sporty (the 4Runner doesn’t lie) and the dog’s chillin’...

I See London, I See France, These Cars Look Like Underpants

Of all of the bizarre car trends of late, the one that perplexes me the most is the nude car.  I can handle the colored wheels, bedazzled license plates are fine, even a pimped out Prius doesn't seem as wrong as it used to. But some things just need to stay in the fashion world and not cross over. Case in point, the flesh colored...
