Here’s a test I set up while working for Acura’s agency to show how Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) can get a vehicle moving in difficult situations. This test also demonstrates how all-wheel drive systems are not all the same.

AUDI SPORTS CAR EXPERIENCE: FUN WITH A FRIEND

Here’s an inside look at what it’s like to do the Audi sportscar experience in Sonoma, CA. My friend Cherlyn is riding shotgun. This video demonstrates why all iPhones should be securely fastened and tray tables should be in their full upright position when on a track.

PUTTING THE LAND ROVER LR3 TO THE TEST

We take my buddy’s 2007 Land Rover LR3 to Hollister Hills recreation area (near San Francisco) and put it to the test. The last video (Part 4) shows why there’s no substitute for a true mechanical locking diff! Overall, the LR3 (Tilda Swinton, as my friend Richie likes to call her), did really well and […]

FRIEND FREAKING OUT AT THE TRACK

What do you do when you have a whole racetrack to yourself and a few minutes of downtime? Duh. My good friend Gabrielle had never been on a racetrack before. Being the giving person I am, I offered to take her in my S4. 🙂 See her reaction in the video below (turn up the volume). Shot at […]

SPOTTED: 2016 ACURA NSX ON THE STREETS IN SAN FRANCISCO

On my way to work this morning I had the pleasant surprise of stumbling upon the 2016 Acura NSX. It instantly caught my eye because (a) I’m a car nerd and (b) it was completely blacked out and begging for attention. It was funny because a woman saw the car at the exact moment I […]

CAR SIGHTINGS: PRIUS PICKUP!

I don’t know why I didn’t think of this first! I mean, c’mon, why wouldn’t anyone want to take a Prius, cut out the rear hatch and turn it into a pickup truck? It’s a Prius, so we all know it gets great gas mileage. And now it’s a truck! I hate to guesstimate, but […]

CAR SIGHTINGS: SOMETHING’S A BIT OFF

OK, so I was on my way to work one day and I saw this car. From a distance, I thought there had been an accident and a car flipped over. But then I noticed the car started moving. As I got closer I realized this car hadn’t been in an accident, but was actually […]
