Lost America

These photographs are part of the website and collection of Troy Paiva. His site, called “Lost America” is full of abandoned places, junk machines, and moonlit landscapes all photographed in striking colors. The effect is haunting, beautiful, and very eerie. I absolutely love it.

Dyson V6 Car & Boat Vacuum

Dyson is cool. Their products are not just different; they are cutting edge and modern. For me they are the Apple of home appliances

My Forza Horizon Garage

Forza Horizon is one of the best racing simulation games available, and the design studio allows you to create custom paint schemes and graphics. Heaven for anyone secretly wanting to be Chip Foose.

Old School Spring Car Mod’s

With the sun shining and the temperature reaching 70 degrees, I decided to hop in my Miata and go run a few errands yesterday. “Running errands” is a great excuse to get out of the house – ahem, office – and get some fresh air. The only downside is other humans like fresh air, too. And many of them have crudely customized cars.

Ken Block – San Francisco Gymkhana

Gymkhana is a type of motorsport with timed events and/or speed events in an automobile. These can feature obstacles such as cones, tires, and barrels. This is better!

A World Class Collection

Collecting seems to bring out that primitive instinct for the hunt in some of its devotees, who stalk their prey with skill. – Alicia Craig Faxon

Who is the Best Car Photographer?

Car Photography is work. Taking a simple photograph of your car is much more difficult than you think, and getting the perfect shot seems to be as much about chance as it is skill.

Gran Turismo 5 Cars – Part II

Someone at Polyphony is a car lover, and one look at the new Gran Turismo 5 list will confirm it. This is Part II of my highlights from the GT5 cars, and it includes some amazing automobiles.

Ever wish you could create your own dream car garage? Most of us do, but very few of us have the money to make it a reality. Now, there is an alternative that will allow you to buy the cars of your dreams, and drive them on the best tracks in the world, all for around 50 bucks.

  • Despite Being Under Criminal Investigation, Uber Got a Great Deal on Otto December 14, 2017
    Uber Technologies Inc. received quite a bit of publicity when it purchased autonomous semi truck developer Otto in 2016. Still, it saw even more headlines when it became embroiled in a trade secrets lawsuit with Waymo. That case involved files obtained by Anthony Levandowski, former Google engineer and co-founder of the self-driving truck company, who was accused of selling […]

  • Good News, America – You’ve Been Chosen to ‘Physically Interact’ With the Polestar Brand December 14, 2017
    Lordy, PR-speak can be offputting. Nevertheless, the newly single Polestar — cast off from Volvo Cars to become its own electrified performance brand under the Geely corporate umbrella — is heading straight to the United States. The U.S., not surprisingly, was chosen as an initial launch market for the brand, along with China (every electric car […]

  • Hedge Fund Manager Convinced Tesla Shares Will Collapse December 14, 2017
    American investment manager and short-seller extraordinaire Jim Chanos claims Tesla is “headed for a brick wall.” Having deemed the automaker as structurally unprofitable, Chanos said, “Three years ago, this company was supposed to be making money [today]. And now, it’s supposed to be making money by 2020. I’m guessing by 2019, we’ll hear about 2025.” However, while Tesla […]

  • 2018 Nissan Leaf SL First Drive – Powering Back From Obsolescence December 14, 2017
    The previous-generation all-electric Nissan Leaf (technically “LEAF,” but that acronym sends my MacBook Air into a snit befitting Peter Frampton), with toenail clippings for headlights and a face only a mother could slug, has historically done very well for itself, selling well over 100,000 units in America since its introduction eight long model years ago.
