Jeep Wrangler Review

Jeep Wrangler’s are one of the most adventurous cars you can drive. I have so many fond memories cruising around town with the top down and going off road in the snow. The best thing about Jeeps are their durability: they always start, you pull anything, you can go over anything, and they are easy to clean up. The neatest thing about Jeeps is that they have drain plugs at the bottom of the car. This means you can power wash the inside of your car! If you get a Jeep Wrangler, I highly recommend getting the hard top. The cloth top Jeeps are pain to put on and off, they are very noisy, and they are poorly insulated. The hard tops feature glass windows and isolation. The only downside is that you need two people to take the top on and off.

Porsche Boxster S Review

Porsche is my all time favorite car brand, so I was thrilled to be able to drive their two seater mid-engine roadster for a couple years. The Boxster series may not be the quickest Porsche, but it is my favorite to drive! I probably put close to 10,000 miles on the one pictured above. By the way, I am not a big fan of yellow cars, except for this one…

Porsche created the Boxster and Boxster S as an entry level into the Porsche world. A typical Porsche 911 will cost you around $80,000 versus the Boxster which starts at around $50,000. The Boxster S is a hybrid of the two. For about $10,000 more you get a much faster car.

Porsches are known for their handling. I took this guy up and down the windy roads of powder valley in Saint Louis Missouri. If you are in the area, I highly recommend it…

1981 Corvette Stingray Review

My second car as a teenager was a 1981 Corvette Stingray. It had a 5.7 L V8 engine. As you can see from the picture above, it was black with red leather interior. Compared to today’s standards, the car is not very fast. The car produced over 300 horsepower, but it was really heavy. The pop-up headlights were really cool, but they had issues with going up and down due to age. Beside the rumble of the engine, my favorite thing about the car was the t-tops. I was able to quickly remove the roof on a sunny day. Towards the end of my experience with the car, I started experiencing electrical problems. The battery would consistently go dead is the car was not started at least once a day.

Mustang Neighbor: 2010 Daytona 500 Pace Car

Last week Thursday was filled with Mustangs. In the morning on my way to work I spotted a 1960’s Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Fastback. Then while going to lunch, I found the 2010 Dayton 500 Ford Mustang Pace Car. Since I drive a Mustang, I parked next to the pace car for a quick photo.

First Look at the Mercedes SLS AMG

I shot this video about a year and a half ago, but still relevant. It is a first look at a very rare car, the Mercedes SLS AMG. The SLS is a redesign of the 1954 Mercedes Gullwing. It was the most advanced car to it’s time. The new Mercedes has a 6.3 L V-8 engine with 563 horsepower. It’s aluminum body is much larger than it’s predecessor, but it still is a great looking car!

 

Cadillac CIEL Concept Car

The Cadillac CIEL concept car is the first car I have seen in a long time that embraces the styling and size of the 1940s with modern times. This car is massive!

2011 South Florida International Auto Show

Since I was inspired during the 2011 South Florida Auto Show to create this blog, I decided this has to be my first post…

General Motors invited me to attend the Grass Roots Awards party at the 2011 South Florida International Auto Show on Friday October 28th, 2011. Very cool event honoring several of my friends for their work in promoting General Motors through social media. General Motors is one of my favorite car company. They are the only one who get social media and are engaging people online and offline. Following the event, we got a first look at the auto show.

In addition to every major automotive brand displaying their current models, the Dezer Museum had on display the original James Bond car
