8 Japanese Classics That’ll Make You A Convert

This past weekend was the Japanese Classics Car Show (JCCS) in Long Beach and man, was it fun. What’s that? You’re not into old Japanese cars? Yeah, I hear that a lot. You dig Land Cruisers, maybe a Z car here and there but the rest just don’t do it for you. It’s for the kids, right? Or maybe the people who don’t know enough...

Hey Toyota, NY Needs A Freaky Prius 4!

The New York Auto Show is in just over two weeks and I’m ready– ready for a crazy, new Toyota Prius. Toyota has historically been my go-to brand for awesome auto show customizations.  Here are some of my faves: The Spongebob Sienna. Classic. Pop a pink unicorn on any vehicle and you have my immediate attention. Respect & most importantly, employment is what our vets need...

Gurl Whatchu Drivin’? Toyota 4Runner Limited

The 4Runner.  It’s such a classic. It’s the car that’s almost a truck that THAT guy drove. You know the one you dated and then regretted post college? The 4Runner was perfect for guys like him because he was either a) a musician, b) a stoner/surfer, c) a mountain biker or d) all of the above. But the 4Runner isn’t just for stoner ex-boyfriends anymore....

Going back to NY is always great, but this year was special because it’s been over a decade since I’ve been to the NY Auto Show. That’s right, since I was 8..more or less. Here are the high, low, & wtf lights from...

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...

St. Elon’s Fire

This week, everyone's been really worked up about the handful of Teslas that have caught on fire.  Stocks have plunged. The twitter-verse is all a blaze (yup, that's a pun) with people are worried that this could be the beginning of the end of the fledgling electric car company. But have no fear, Mama's here, your automotive voice of reason.   Tesla's not the first car company to...
