    The Super73 RX-Malibu x RSD is expensive but good fun

    /

    Super73 and Roland Sands Design teamed up to collaborate on an RX-Malibu, and the result is pretty sweet. This RSD-themed bike isn’t just upgraded in the looks department, as the battery has been relocated, the pedals and chain upgraded, and the rear shock swapped out for a better Fox unit. All-in-all it’s a sweet machine […]

    This is my “new” JDM Toyota Land Cruiser

    /

    I needed a second car. I knew what I needed functionally but wasn’t sure what I wanted. Actually, I wanted my Bronco, but my wife wouldn’t relinquish it. So I started looking for something else. I looked at so many cars that I started to hate looking at cars. Ultimately, I bought something I didn’t […]

    What was your news for the week?

    /

    Kicking it back to you this week. There wasn’t really anything exciting or even remotely interesting in the industry to cover, which is sort of becoming the norm.

    2023 Cadillac Escalade V Review: Disturbing the peace

    “I AM THE GOD OF HELLFIRE” Jeremy Clarkson once proclaimed while cutting down a tree somewhere in the depths of Bolivia. Obviously, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade V-Series didn’t exist yet. The 682-horsepower, 6200-pound mass of mayhem and madness defies all logic and sensibility. Its quad tips produce the loudest bellow anyone has heard from a […]
