The Joy of Driving

porsche panamera gts

Fellow enthusiasts, lend me your ear. Wait, too dramatic? OK, let’s start over. Look, we need to start talking people into following us into the promised land, the hooniverse. Lots of mainstream media outlets have foretold the end of our kind. Apparently, the youths supposedly aren’t getting their driver’s license, or aren’t interested in owning […]

2021 Toyota Venza Limited l Review

2021 Toyota Venza Limited

It is day 265 of the year 2021 A.D. and I just sat down to write about the twelfth crossover to end up in my driveway this year. I am trying to stay positive, but at first glance this Toyota Venza looked a bit like the last one, it was even the same color. However, […]

2005 Alfa Romeo 147 GTA l Review

2005 Alfa Romeo 147 GTA

Yes, you read that correctly, there is a 2005 Alfa Romeo 147 GTA here in the United States, and I just had a go in it. You are likely asking “how”, which is the most common question the owner is asked. Often that is not followed by anything other than utter confusion. People literally walk […]

2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime XSE Premium l Review

2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime

I’d like to thank you all for tuning in once again into my slow but certain descent into the depths the crossover segment. It’s literally one after another, after another, after another, after another, and that’s just in the last month. A white CX-5 was replaced last week by a white Venza and my wife […]

Cars & Bids is Now Free for Sellers

The world of internet auction sites is more active than ever. Your options to sell your car used to be fairly limited. There was Ebay and a little site called Bring a Trailer. If you haven’t yelled obscenities at final BaT selling prices you haven’t been paying attention. I was infatuated with 1990s cars since, […]

2021 Mazda CX-5 Signature AWD l Review

2021 Mazda CX-5 Signature AWD

Getting old sucks, and that is especially true in the crossover world. While many pine for now-classic 1990s and older enthusiast cars, very few people really wish they could find a mint CR-V. Notice I said “very few”, I’m regularly on weird car Twitter, so I know there’s a lot of diversity in our little […]

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Calligraphy l Review

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Calligraphy

Hey guys, it’s me again, back with another crossover review! This time it’s the latest Hyundai Santa Fe and it’s tippy top trim level, the Calligraphy. If you can imagine, 2021 marks the Santa Fe’s twentieth birthday! Twenty years of the midsize (formerly compact) crossover has come to our shores across four generations, the latest […]

2021 Ford Bronco Sport Outer Banks l Review

2021 Ford Bronco Sport Outer Banks

The problem with crossovers is that they are just too similar. You can recognize the silhouette of today’s most popular vehicle segment from a mile away, but you can’t always tell which one it is. I’m sure I could lean over and look out the window and see several parked nearby, well in addition to […]

2021 Volkswagen ID.4 Pro S l Review

2021 Volkswagen ID.4 Pro S

The only area of the new car market that is as hot and competitive as the electric vehicle (EV) segment is the crossover segment. So it’s no surprise that automakers are scrambling to get EV crossovers into their dealerships right now. Volkswagen, one of the largest automakers in the world, is clearly investing in their […]

2021 Lexus NX 300h l Review

2021 Lexus NX 300h

Do something right in the automotive world and you’ll quickly be asked to do it again, but this time smaller. Or perhaps larger. The original Lexus RX was a pioneer in the luxury crossover world. It brought Toyota reliability with an upscale interior. That’s not why I brought you, dear reader, to this little corner […]
