I flew to Scotland and drove $500,000 worth of Aston Martins around Loch Ness and through the Scottish highlands. Surprise result: I enjoyed this. My latest for Road & Track.
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.
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.

I have two articles in this month’s Road & Track magazine. In the first, I write about a test track in Arizona that replicates the shittiest road in New York City–an ersatz stretch used by Nissan to test their so-called Taxi of Tomorrow. I also test drive a new Rolls Royce in the Austrian Alps, and deem it as decidedly on brand as Hell (as in, Hades).

Teenagers are often surprised when the decisions they make end in disaster. This is not because they’re dumb, but because they lack the experience to predict imminent ruination. This is what makes life fresh for them, and it is the cornerstone of the vitality we call youth. The second in a ten-part series I’m doing for Road & Track.
