The event encompasses almost the entirety of downtown New Cannan, CT with the Sunday morning affair bringing out some of the Northeast’s finest vehicles.

2021 Land Rover Discovery R Dynamic S Review

What makes for a good luxury SUV in 2021? A three-row family hauler needs to be more than posh to win buyers. It has to offer space for gear or travel bags, promise off-tarmac capability for the small percentage who use it, and bring enough technology to make an IT firm quiver. And, it has […]

Buy this Land Rover Discovery to live those Camel Trophy dreams

Land Rover has a pure, holistic connection with off-roading. So much so that the brand is basically synonymous with four-wheel-drive vehicles. Even more so with the famed Camel Trophy. Though the manufacturer has swayed toward luxury as of late, the Rovers we know and love are those like the example we have here. Exactly like […]

Project V8 4th-gen 4Runner: Spring update

I’ve had the yet-to-be-named 4Runner for a few months now. (Millenium Falcon is the working title, in case you were wondering, continuing my Star Wars theme). As is the case with any new-to-you project, three things need to happen: Set a baseline, mend existing issues, and start improving. Much of this has happened. Progress has […]

Kia Seltos SX Turbo Review: The surprising Florida road trip test

Consumers cannot get enough of the small-to-midsize crossover market. Accordingly, nearly every manufacturer provides an offering in the segment.

My wife and I would find out: […]

Jeep taunts us with 2021 Easter Jeep Safari concepts

Year after year, Jeep brings out a slew of concept vehicles to the Easter Jeep Safari. Usually demonstrations in what they’re capable of building rather than simply foreshadowing for future products, each build is meticulously crafted and ticks the boxes for items that pique off-road enthusiasts’ interest. This year’s concepts are no different. 2021’s Easter […]

Bremach Taos: Rugged, honest UAZ Patriot 4×4 coming to the USA

When it comes to new vehicles, enthusiasts clamor for two things: Cheap sports cars, and honest off-roaders. The former is covered, more so now than in quite a while. The Miata stands strong. The Subaru/Scion/Toyota BRZ/FRS/GT86 trio has become common. And a new Z-car is on the horizon. But when it comes to legitimate four-by-fours, […]

Alpha Motor Corporation reveals ACE electric coupe

Electric concept cars might be a dime-a-dozen as of late, but some still shine. On the off-road side, RIVIAN has come into the spotlight as of late. Their capable-yet-refined pickup and SUV are striking a chord with the family and overlanding communities alike. There’s even a new Hummer on the horizon. But what of sporty […]

2005 Toyota 4Runner Limited V8 4WD: Introduction

Here’s my newest acquisition: a 2005 Toyota 4Runner Limited in Titanium Metallic, with the 4.7L V8 and 4WD. I’ve been joking about what to name it, and the official name is TBD, but I really wanted to name it Britney because, well, oops… I did it again. Or “T-3PO,” aka “The Millennium Falcon.” There are […]
