That’s so gay: 2017 Chrysler 300 is the big Mary of muscle cars

Well, if I had a spare $35,000 plus, I would consider getting this Queen Mary of muscle cars! If you are into big queens who know how to roar past crowded aisles and slow-moving queues, you will enjoy the Chrysler…

First Drive: All-new 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan may be finally ready for America

Volkswagen admits up front that it has work to do before it can regain the trust of U.S. shoppers.  It’s starting by offering a 6-year / 72,000-mile transferable warranty on the new 2018 Tiguan, which is 11 inches longer than the…

First Drive: 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport is a ‘Shantay, you stay’

The 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport is here, and it’s a spunky pocket bear, perfect for all your wild bear fantasies but nice enough to bring to those Lutheran potlucks where at least one person lifts a plate to see whose…

2017 Lexus GX 460: Big, bold, beautiful and better with bears

I was in Dallas recently for the annual Texas Bear Round Up, hosted each year by the ever-loving and easy-swinging Dallas Bears. To clarify, there are no bears that must be caught via a Wonder Woman lasso, as catching a human…

2017 Buick Encore: I felt so relaxed in this car

As I was driving this year’s Buick Encore, which has a few styling upgrades from 2016, many people, including passengers, were a bit miffed.  They still make Buicks? I thought Buicks were supposed to be boats with port and starboard…

2017 Chevy Bolt EV: You’ll look great in this space-age car of tomorrow

I will say this, I was impressed by how controlled both the acceleration and braking on the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV are. If you put the car in ‘L’ instead of ‘D’rive, you can cruise around town and mostly never…

2017 Toyota Land Cruiser: It’s big, so it’ll need some room and attention

One of my first impressions of the 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser is that it can drink. There’s nothing wrong with that: I’ve gone out with many handsome brutes who could drink and were just as bottomless as the bottomless mimosas…

2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro 4×4: Goodness, this is a butch truck!

I love trucks whenever I feel like playing dress-up as a cowboy, a cop, a seaman or a construction worker. (When I want to play leather daddy, I try to get a motel room.) Trucks were always a lot of…

That’s so gay: 2017 Infiniti QX30 is fast and loose and tight

Many cars, especially SUVs and their knockoffs, are designed for the person with an “active” lifestyle.  What does that mean? It means that you, the driver, exercises regularly, or at least owns a pair of gym shorts.  It means you…

2017 Kia Soul: I love this car!

If your life is funky in a hygienic way, you enjoy Batman and Wonder Woman for the camp and color and not for the deeper meaning, and you’d rather be smokin’ and laughin’ and gassing it up than be in…
