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.

  • Take Note, Hollywood: Germany Cancels Prestigious Auto Awards Due to Criminality, Awkwardness June 22, 2018
    The organizers of televised U.S. awards shows, who annually serve up a night of lectures, sermons, hypocrisy, and guilt for an increasingly small audience, should realize that the show doesn’t necessarily have to go on. It’s certainly not going on in Germany. Axel Springer, a top publishing house for numerous German media sources, including AutoBild, […]

  • 2018 Volkswagen GTI S Review – The One-car Solution June 22, 2018
    Depending on how pedantic you feel like being, one can argue that the original Volkswagen GTI was not the first hot hatch.

    It’s happened to all of us, right?

  • QOTD: Yea or Nay to the Blazer Name Game? June 22, 2018
    It seems there were no shortage of comments left on our 2019 Chevrolet Blazer story after it went up last night. Sorry for keeping you all up, feverishly pounding those keys. But could there not be? The decision to resurrect a fairly fondly remembered name and apply it to a less-rugged vehicle was bound to […]
