Bigoted Michigan Auto Shop Owner Brian Klawiter Is Still A Bigot & Should Probably Stick To Fixing Cars

Remember Brian Klawiter, owner of the diesel repair shop DIESELTEC in Grandville, Michigan? The oh-so-media-savvy guy who announced on television that he’d happily refuse service to LGBT customers but give a discount to any straight person who walked in carrying a…

Fantasy Road Trip: San Francisco To Portland, Taking The Scenic Route, Day 2

After our long, winding first day on the road, the three of us felt like we could sleep in a bit — and we did. We had a lazy start to the day, with a leisurely breakfast of leftovers from our…

Motor City Pride Features A Rainbow-Wrapped 2016 Fiat 500X (And Bears In Speedos!)

On June 28, 1969, a group of gays, lesbians, drag queens, and transfolk in a tiny bar in New York’s West Village decided they’d had enough — enough hiding, enough ridicule, enough harassment. During what should’ve been a (sadly) routine…

The Matrix

Brace Yourselves

So, we’ve got a bit of unpleasantness to take care of here at Gaywheels. Stuff on the back end. Website stuff, I mean. Due to some scheduling issues, it looks like that’s going to have to take place on Monday, June…

Fantasy Road Trip: San Francisco To Portland, Taking The Scenic Route, Day 1

2015 Ford Mustang

2015 Ford Mustang Is Finally A Great Car

Despite more than 9 million cars produced over 50 years, the Mustang has never been a particularly great car. Sure, its style is iconic, and it can blow the doors off the best of them, but interiors were hideously cheap…

2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon: Off-Road, It’s Great, But In Traffic? Meh

The idiom “Crossing the Rubicon” means to pass a point of no return, and refers to Julius Caesar‘s army’s crossing of the river in 49 BC, which was considered an act of insurrection. Because the course of the river has changed much since then, it is…

2015 Chrysler 300C Platinum

That’s So Gay: 2015 Chrysler 300 Is As Big & Butch As You Are

Chrysler has recently changed its name to FCA: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. This name change makes sense, given that ‘Fiat’ sounds very European and sexy, while ‘Chrysler’, though technically German/Jewish, still sounds stodgy and stuck in the 60s, Welcome to the…
