    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’ll admit, the first time I saw a new Toyota Crown I was not impressed. I think it was at the D.C. Auto Show, and while I was quite taken with the in-your-face styling, I was confused by, well that very same styling. However, I am a professional and when Toyota asked me if I…

    Genesis, as well as its corporate siblings, Hyundai and Kia, have been on the roll for a few years. Each new or updated model is significantly better than the previous one. They all look great and offer a variety of powertrains. Genesis, especially, has put design first, and their cars look fantastic. Interiors are great…

    Ace Performance is an automotive performance shop owned by one of my best friends. I have written about Ace Performance here many times. They build and maintain race cars, spend an incredible amount of time at the track, and they are a retailer of Ariel and Ginetta cars. They also spend a good amount of time…

    In the summer of 2022, I bought a freshly imported ’96 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, also known as the 90-series. At the time, this Japanese-market Land Cruiser was unique in the United States as 1996 was the first year of that generation of medium-duty Land Cruiser. Given the 25-year import rule, 2021 was the first…

    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…

    You have to hand it to Hyundai, their designers (and whoever approves their work) are some of the least risk-adverse in the industry. I’d love to have sat in on the first pitch for the new IONIQ 6, I imagine it was something like “We’re going for Citroën DS meets Porsche 911” and the bosses…

    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…
