This past week was a truly exciting time in my automotive pursuits. I had my first true experience with a virtual reality racing simulator - which I’ll tell you all about in an upcoming post – and I got to spend my Saturday putting my hands on a number of dream machines. In the process of trying to decide exactly [...]

Oh no! It’s THE BLOOOOG!!!!

The 1953 Plymouth Fury from Christine, Janet Leigh’s 1957 Ford Custom 300 in Psycho, the 1970 Chevy Nova from Quentin Tarantino’s Deathproof, Charlie Sheen’s prototype Dodge Turbo Interceptor from The Wraith, the 1955 Chevrolet One-Fifty in Sometimes They Come Back are all iconic examples of murderous motors from Hollywood cinema. And that list doesn’t even include the countless examples of killer big-rigs [...]

When Ponies Fly

Last week, I wrote about my buddy David and our Jeep adventures. In that post, I mentioned our propensity for getting airborne while behind the wheel. Since Elon Musk has yet to invent a true flying car, I’d like to talk a little bit more about cars that fly. Ken Block is one of my heroes. If you’re into cars and [...]

LIttle Cherokee v. Slumberland

After my post a couple of weeks ago about the popularity of SUVs in the suburbs, I started thinking quite a bit about my dream sport-ute. Apparently, that stuck fast in my head, because last night, I had a literal dream about a Jeep. This wasn’t just any Jeep, but a completely blacked-out 2010 SRT8 WK Grand Cherokee, perhaps the most [...]

Das Auto-binge

With a name like Paul Hollywood, you’re destined for stardom. The consummate British baker-become-race-driver is known for his tan and boot-cut jeans almost as much as his breads. If Gordon Ramsay is the Simon Cowell of cooking, then Hollywood is their analogue in the baking world. So, when I set out to watch his newest series, Paul Hollywood’s Big Continental [...]

A Case of the Blues

This is dedicated to the dad with the awesome Dark Blue TRD Tundra at my son's preschool who is helping me keep the dream alive.Three weeks ago, my son started preschool. I have long lamented my youthful expectations of adventure and glory, as so many of us often do, but the first day of preschool [...]

Social Bimmers

Our neighborhood has turned into a wealth of automotive inspiration. As I've mentioned (and probably will continue to), there are several doors that I've been tempted to knock on because of the mean machines parked in the driveways. One particular BMW E30 that lives on the street in front of one of the first few houses at the entrance to [...]

Riding the Bull; 8 secs in a Saleen S7

Growing up, I spent quite a few Saturday afternoons watching PBR – Professional Bull Riding, not Pabst Blue Ribbon – on television with my grandfather. Pa-pa, as we called him, grew up in a family of sharecroppers in the Deep South before shipping out with the Navy at the end of the second World War, then riding undercover with the [...]

License to Thrill

My son is only three and a half and is therefore at least 12 years away from driving a motor vehicle. Given the current rate of technological advancement, we could see self-driving cars, or at least cars that only require a bare minimum of human interaction, by the time he reaches adulthood. For now though, I am steeling myself for [...]

B-B-B-Buffy and the Jets

Sports cars and supercars were a critical theme throughout my formative years. I mentioned in last week’s post that the Bugatti EB110 was the only poster in my room. That’s technically true, at least as far as the four walls were concerned. My mother worked as a freelance interior designer in the early ‘90s before going into real estate, and [...]
