Another Failure

Written by , Posted in Road & Track

Six years ago, I took this Millennial New York kid on the greatest automotive tour of Los Angeles ever devised–picked up from the airport in a Rolls, blasting through the Malibu canyons in a Lamborghini, tracking a 911 with Patrick Long at Willow Springs, off-roading in a Raptor at Brian Deegan’s private mud pit, riding the 6th Street Bridge with legendary low-rider artist Mr. Cartoon, and more–to try to convince him that cars are cool. He still doesn’t have a driver’s license.

A $140,000 U-Haul

Written by , Posted in Road & Track

Wherein a friend and I undertake a ridiculous, 24-hour, 1000-mile adventure in a six-figure hot-rod station wagon, attempting to answer the literal and philosophical question: Are we in love with our baggage?

Rabid Rubber

Written by , Posted in Road & Track

Goodyear

What would you do if you owned an inhospitable, 7250-acre, rubbly, caliche-undergridded plot of west-central Texas, plagued by fire ants, tarantulas, Africanized bees, and rabid foxes? If you’re Goodyear, you’d flood it and test 12 foot tall truck tires.

My latest feature for Road & Track magazine is out in the March/April issue. It’s all about my time celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Alaska Miata Club, in Alaska, with a souped-up Miata. You can click on the thumbnails above to view crappy scans of each page in the six page piece (then click them again to zoom in), or you can just buy the magazine on the newsstand, you chintzy bitch.

Rally for the Lane Motor Museum

Written by , Posted in Road & Track

Lane-Rally-R&T

The Lane Motor Museum holds one of the largest and oddest collections of tiny, weirdo, orphan cars ever assembled. And once a year, you can pay to drive some of them. Or, if you’re me and writing about it for the February 2014 issue of Road & Track, you can drive them for free. Click the image above to view a crappy scan of the article (and then click it again to make it bigger and more legible). Better yet, just buy the magazine on the newsstand, you chintzy bitch. (p.22)
