    I love this truck. Of all the vehicles I’ve owned, I haven’t felt much of an emotional connection. I’ve enjoyed them, certainly, but when it’s time for one to shuffle off to a new owner, I’m okay with that. The Montero, however, is different. I’ve taken this one on adventures. My daughter has grown a…

    The Montero is at the shop and my Mustang is in the garage. Only one of these was planned. About a month ago, I was heading towards Arrowhead in California. Before starting the climb up Rt.330 which would take us there, I noticed an unwelcome noise coming from the engine in my Montero. My wife…

    I am going to put a string of words out there that seem like they’d only be vaguely connected. Subaru. Ferrari. Rally. California. Oregon. Some of those seem related, but for this story, they all fit together amazingly well. That’s because the video above shows a 2004 Subaru WRX STI fully built up for rally…

    The 2024 Ford Mustang GT is a good evolution of the Mustang. But the S650 is not a game changer. It feels like an update to the 550, and that’s fine. Though it is a bit of a shame just how expensive the Mustang is now. [Disclaimer: Ford tossed us the keys to the Mustang…

    I typically scoff at every email in my inbox touting the next restomodded all-star vehicle. That’s because there are a lot of companies out there charging insane money for vehicles that started life as inexpensive shells, but now wear terrible wheels and usually have a cheap Grant steering wheel bolted to the column. And the…

    I’ve been hunting for a first-gen Ford Mustang for a while now. Prices on these things are a bit insane at the moment. People want a surprising amount of cash for hunks of crap. And if you want a Fastback? Forget about it. Somehow, though, I managed to find one that is priced very well……

    The Acura Integra Type S is a 320-hp sports sedan that’s built for daily-duty greatness. It’s a blast on a curvy road, but also comfortable and enjoyable for the drive to and from work. It’s a great dual-natured machine. [Disclaimer: Acura tossed me the keys to the Type S and included a tank of fuel.]

    Land Rover invited us back for another round of its Trek competition. This marks our 3rd time competing in the media wave, and it marks our 3rd victory. This time, the competition unfolds in a surprisingly excellent off-road space outside of Austin, Texas. Land Rover has built up a fleet of Defender 130s for use.…

    The Honda Motocompacto is a modern take on a cult classic. It’s the reimagined version of the Motocompo scooter from the early 80s. That was called a trunk bike and it was designed to fit in the rear of the subcompact Honda City. Today, the Motocompacto is here and it weighs half as much, as…

    Let me get two things out of the way right up front; no one is paying me to write this post, and yes I should maybe slow down behind the wheel. That first bit? I’m referring to the fact that this will sound like an ad but it’s in fact just me being supremely impressed…
