I love the trajectory of transportation. It's always fascinating to see the emergence of technology within vehicles, and how they compete. I have a tremendous appreciation for EVs and old British all-mechanical roadsters alike. My personal daily driver is a NC Miata, but hoping to add an EV to the mix soon.

Zero FXE: Riding the Future Commuter

Jet packs. This was supposed to be the future. Zero’s CEO Sam Paschel was disappointed, like many of us, in the current lack of jet packs. Today was supposedly that future, with so many gadgets of popular culture that never came to fruition. But unlike the jet pack, Zero wants to actually deliver on its promises.

2021 Ford F-150: Don’t Fix What Ain’t Broke

This is America. At least that’s what many passionate F-150 owners would say in defining their trucks. It’s been an icon of freedom, functionality, lifestyle, not to mention the best selling truck in America for 44 years. That is an impressive legacy, and it’s a hard balance between needing to improve and adapt to modernity while keeping the status quo of almost a million new customers a year. With the all-new 2021 model, they have done well.

2021 Infiniti Q50: Dated Thrills

Infiniti has re-released the Q50 for a 7th time with minor changes. Though the world appears to be run by CUVs, the mid-size sedan is still a very present market-space, and Infiniti has once again offered their “luxury sports sedan”. I’m here to see if either of those modifier adjectives are as true as they once were. Introducing, the Infiniti Q50 Signature Edition.

2021 Genesis G80: Nearly a Masterpiece

The Genesis G80 has been wholly refreshed for the 2021 model year, sharing a platform with its new SUV brother, the Genesis GV80. A relatively young sub-brand of Hyundai, Genesis is finding its ethos, as well as its place in an ever-growing market of affordable luxury options.

2021 Toyota Supra: 2.0’s Company, 3.0’s a Crowd.

The GR Supra rocked the world, for better or worse. It was met with mixed reactions, plenty of purist criticism, but also critical acclaim for those who actually got behind the wheel. With 2021, Toyota improved the 3.0L and brought to light a new 4 cylinder 2.0L. Ever the advocate for the under-dog, I was very intrigued to try it and surprised to find that I loved it.

2021 Mustang Mach-E: Technically, a Mustang 

I was eager to write this review. I love controversy, and if you want to find some in the automotive world, look no further than the Mustang Mach-E. In fact, look no further than the name. But despite the general dislike towards its given title, I will point out that it is a Mustang, whether we like it or not. And there’s some interesting logic in that conclusion. Let’s take a look at the longest range Mustang Mach-E: the California Route 1.

2022 Nissan Pathfinder: Blister-Fenders Are Back, Baby.


It has been over 35 years since the release of the legendary original Nissan Pathfinder, and it has changed dramatically since that iconic rugged boxy design was unveiled. But now, with the 2022, we’ve been granted an all-new design that looks back to its roots. This is an in-depth look and drive of the upcoming 2022 Nissan Pathfinder.

2021 Honda Accord Hybrid: Perfectly Fine


The Honda Accord is at its 45th year, in its 10th generation, and still holds its own as a compelling mid-size sedan. It has always been a good seller, an affordable, efficient vehicle for the masses. But its compelling starting price makes it a bargain for efficiency and one of the better tools for getting from point A to point B. I was treated with the top of the line Hybrid Touring, and it’s quite good…

Take a look at our driving impressions in the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder in this video.

2021 Volvo XC60: The Most Excellent Middle Child

Volvo prides themselves on simplicity with elegance, and this is no exception. It’s not a gaudy car in any real way (except maybe that shift knob) but it doesn’t leave you feeling like you are missing out on a great experience. Whether you’re behind the wheel, interacting with the infotainment, or simply looking at it, it’s all a quite pleasing experience. This is the Volvo XC60 Recharge T8 Inscription, a turbocharged, super-charched, plug-in hybrid beast.
