I don’t know if you know this, but people are goofy! We show our asses constantly. The only way to feel better about this is to laugh it off. Which is what we’re going to do this week.
There are many injustices in this world and one of them is being pulled over for something really stupid. It’s frustrating as all hell and inconvenient, too. Not everyone has time to go and contest the charge, we got other stuff to do.
Cars can be full of mysteries, especially if you’re not the first owner. What’s that smell? That noise? Why is it like this?
If you’re speeding and you get pulled over, that’s on you. But sometimes it isn’t always your fault. Cops are people, too, and occasionally they pull you over for reasons that, uh, aren’t always 100 percent legitimate.
Are you guys ready for some truly weird stuff? Because I’ve just spent my morning reading all of your outlandish road trip stories and I feel like I survived through an episode of The Twilight Zone.
If societal norms and insurance costs didn’t exist, my garage would be pretty wild and stupid. Im sure many of you are in the same boat. Everyone has that car that the dream about but for whatever reason, they can’t buy one just yet. Homeowner’s Associations, plain ol’ reason and more can get in the way of automotive…
As long as there are roads, there will be road trips. There’s just something so great about sitting in a car and watching the miles tumble by. It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey and all that.
Here’s some good news: You aren’t always at the mercy of your dealership or auto repair shop. If the repair or replacement is small enough, chances are good that you can probably do it yourself. Just do your research to be sure.
Barn find cars are the archeological expeditions of the car world. Instead of a fedora, whip and Harrison Ford, these digs often involve standing in a shed and googling “Mustang VIN decoder” while a pigeon silently judges you from the rafters.
Part of the draw of cars for many of us is we know we can fix them ourselves if something goes wrong. It may seem very intimidating at first, but once you realize that cars are just made up of many small parts, it helps you break down what’s wrong in your mind and makes the job easier to approach.
Some say cars are lifeless objects, incapable of having personalities. Others say that they are anything but. Personally, I think cars can go either way, but some still manage to hide secret quirks and features from the rest of us that you’d only know if you were intimately familiar with that car.
One thing I always have liked about BMWs is that you can always find them on remarkably cool wheels stock. It makes them all the more appealing when you see them for sale 20 years after they came off the showroom floor and whoa excuse me nevermind look at those AMG five spokes those are clean as hell.
Learning to drive can be a daunting experience. You are suddenly tasked with safely controlling a few thousand pound piece of steel in traffic. Not every car is best suited for this task. A Dodge Challenger Hellcat for instance, is probably the worst possible car for someone who has never driven a car. New drivers…
Since cars span so many eras and were designed, thought up and created by so many different people, it’s inevitable that there would be many little secrets and nuggets of knowledge hidden away in them.
Despite what we think we know about cars, they can still manage to surprise us with how well they drive. That’s why we shouldn’t be so quick to write one off, despite how it looks on paper.
Today is President’s Day which marks the birthday of both George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. I’m honoring our nation’s past leaders in the only way I know how, blogging about cars on the internet.Everyone knows that George Washington probably would have driven a big American SUV or muscle car. He just seems like…
Sitting in traffic is one of America’s pastimes. Everyone has to sit in a sea of stationary cars on the highway from time to time whether it’s on I-95 going down to Florida or the I-5 at the beach in California. Luckily, some cars have ways of entertaining their occupants or at least keeping them placated until…
Trim packages are there for that extra little pizzaz on cars. Because why would you want a base Camry like your neighbor’s got when you could get the Camry XSE V6? These packages don’t usually amount to much more than a unique paint and maybe some suspension work and interior features. But they’ve been deemed…
Some cars defy rationality with their market prices, yet we consistently seem amazed there are people willing to pony up for them. Perhaps you can’t put a price on dreams. Is there a dream car out there that would make you pay more than you should?
Some cars just look better than others on paper. It all comes down to magic words like “manual transmission,” “rear-wheel drive” and “V8.” Kind of like reading a menu. You can assume something looks good, but until you try it, you won’t truly know what it’s like.
