I like to save a buck wherever I can. I like doing this so much that I cut my kitchen sponges and only use one half at a time to make the pack last longer. My kind and considerate friends say I’m “frugal,” but let’s just call it what it is: I am a cheap bastard and these car deals have me extremely interested.
For a manufacturer that prides its cars as being built with that famed Italian passion, it’s remarkable how many machines are present on the floor of the Ferrari manufacturing plant.
Hey kids! Are you in the Los Angeles area and have nothing to do Saturday, Dec. 2? Do you need an excuse to get out those old windbreakers, Members Only jackets and neon leotards? Then come to Radwood 2, our ‘80s and ‘90s-themed car show. It’s gonna be totally bitchin’.
It has been said on this very website that big, dominating infotainment screens are terrible, ugly and a pain in the ass. They effectively block your view and the design is usually lazy: stuck on top of everything like an afterthought. Mazda is sick of this shit.
Taylor Hawkins, the drummer for 90s rock band Foo Fighters since 1997, seems like a pretty chill dude. He once said a U2 album sounded “like a fart any way you listen to it,” which I am sure got a laugh out of somebody. We’ve also learned that, despite being worth millions of dollars, the cars he keeps are fairly…
“You can’t know where you’re going until you know where you’ve been” is the kind of lame, sing-song fortune cookie saying you get from time to time in lieu of an actual fortune. And while on most days, I think it’s merely a hokey way of reminding people that the past is important, when it involves two very special…
You order the pizza, you eat the pizza and as you’re going to throw the box away, you remember that your old Buick parked outside doesn’t have a license plate. Well, who has a pair of scissors and a marker? You do!
The beloved Mazda6, beautiful and elegantly styled as it is, needed a little more power in its currently generation. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder just didn’t give the car enough grunt. Now, it seems like Mazda’s flagship sedan will finally get some extra love in the form of a turbocharged engine.
If you’ve got a Lada, chances are high that at some point it will need a tow. But perhaps you are the do-it-yourself-type. “Screw hiring a professional!” you declare. “I’ll do it myself!”
When you’ve pick up a car used, have you ever wondered about the life it had before you? Sometimes you can gather scraps of information from the car itself (a leftover CD or impressions in the upholstery from child seats), but unless you have a contact, a lot of it becomes speculation and guesswork. One GT-R owner is…
Our cars are our babies and they need protecting from the dirt and grit of the outside world. Especially after a natural disaster. In the wake of the wildfires that ravaged California in October, people are finally starting to rebuild their lives. It won’t be easy, especially for those who lost nearly everything.
I think about cars a lot, as it is my job. But I’ve found that I think about this car more than I do most: a 2008 Lexus IS F. I think about this Lexus roughly twice a week, which is a lot for a car that’s 10 years old. But with rear-drive and a dirty V8 bark, how do you not think about it?
Remember these? Mr. Regular does. The late-2000s model Lexus ISes? Perhaps when you try and recall one in your brain-space, you cannot, for these cars blended so perfectly with their suburban environments that only a blank swatch of pavement at the parking lot of a Whole Foods turns up in your mind’s eye. Ah, but this…
As a young gearhead, getting behind the wheel of a car for the first time must have been thrilling. This was certainly the first step toward driving that Lamborghini or Ferrari in the post you had up on your bedroom wall.
First: some clarification. Bugattis are definitely affordable. Their price tags wouldn’t cause any kind of hesitation for the millionaires that buy them. But for the rest of us working nine-to-six jobs, we’re looking for a Bugatti that costs a hair less than a few million dollars. Thank God that might be in the works…
