The Wild Wild Westfalia

Photo Source I have always wondered what my zombie apocalypse vehicle would be. There are some pretty cool armored trucks from the super cool Steel Wheels 4x4, to converted RVs and GMC box trucks, to a real-life version of the EM-50 Urban Assault Vehicle from the movie Stripes. However, for my money, the coolest way to [...]

Speaking of Bentley...

Photo Source Speaking of Bentley, during my research about the Continental GT, I came across an interesting bit of trivia.

A 911 Emergency

Dear readers, this past week has been a long year. Last Monday feels like ages ago, and our new normal, with all of the uncertainty, can certainly feel quite abnormal. However, I spotted a ray of sunshine a few days back, and it gave me so much more hope and enthusiasm than was probably warranted. [...]

Skyline Drive

It all centered around a 1999 Nissan Skyline R34 GTR.During my youth, I was a hardcore boy racer. My friends and I all [...]
