Transportation is about to change in a big way. This article won’t talk about cars. In fact, the lack of car talk may be representative of the foreseeable future where we no longer talk about cars on a regular basis. Instead in the future we’ll be talking about how San …

The Toyota Prius: Nature’s D Student

After a mid-summer hiatus I’m back with a post I’ve been putting off for a while now.  Let’s get something straight right from the start, I have nothing against hybrids.  I have made my peace with them.  Nor do I have a problem with Toyota.  2000 GT, Supra, and the …

Need For Speed

I like the Fast and the Furious series because it’s simply the only car movie franchise out there. The Bond movies, the Transporter and Transformer movies feature amazingly cool cars but they don’t quite focus on them as heavily. Coming in 2014, viewers will finally have an alternative to the …

Full Review: 2014 Mazda 6 Grand Touring

I felt compelled to write about this car next even though I said I’d review the Subaru Legacy here. And there is good reasoning behind why I’m writing about the Mazda 6 first. It’s just that good. And leading off with a statement like that, you know it has to …

Full Review: 2013 Subaru WRX Hatchback

To start, I’d like to rattle off a few facts, as I am a statistics junkie (thanks Fantasy Football, you ass). Subaru is the ONLY carmaker in the world to get a 5-star crash rating on all of its cars. Subaru offers 8 distinctly different models (not accounting for hybrid, …

Movie Review: Fast and Furious 6

I will keep the spoilers to a minimum… The Fast and The Furious series has come a long way from the OG “The Fast and The Furious” to its now lazily titled Fast & Furious 6. I recall watching the original back in 2001 and thinking how terribly awesome it …

Unreal Indy Lights Freedom 100, 4 Wide Finish

This Friday is Carb Day at Indy and yea they haven’t used carburetors in decades, but that just doesn’t matter. It’s one of the great traditions in all of motorsports. It’s the Indy 500’s appetizer before Sunday’s main course. As we’ve said before, Indy is in the holy triumvirate of race tracks, and almost …

Greatest 30 Days in Racing

There are few venues in motor racing that need no introduction.  They are the tracks that, by themselves, make the event special.  They need no promotion. Fans and drivers alike long to be there. The great cars and drivers of today are competing with not only themselves, but the ghosts …

Full Review: 2013 Honda Accord Sport

This review was meant to be a full review of the 2013 Ford Escape. Fortunately for me, I have a girlfriend who is not only smart and has excellent taste, but also has no filter when it comes to calling me out on stupid ideas (Editor’s Note: True). I truly …

Power To The People: Part 2

As I said in Part 1, for the vast majoirity of us, the dream of owning a Supercar is out of reach.  We can’t afford one.  Even if we could, the reality of owning one is quite different than the dreams we all had.  That said, I would still leap at the …
