I Had My First Crash on the Street, in a Press Car on New Year’s Eve

I’ve been very proud of my mostly-flawless driving record. Since obtaining my drivers’ license in 2006, I’ve managed to only earn a few minor speeding tickets over the years.

Four Hours with Mike & Martha: Sharing the 2023 Nissan Z with my First Grade Teacher and “Mr. Z” Himself

2023 Cadillac Escalade V Review: Break ‘Em Off Something Proper Like a Real Show Stopper

There are certain cars in this business that come close to being perfect. This one is the perfect family crossover, that one is the perfect sport sedan. You know the type. And then there are others that are imperfect, sometimes in a bad way and sometimes in a this-has-an-abundance-of-character way. The 2023 Cadillac Escalade V …

The 2022 Genesis G80 Was the Conduit to a Magical Vacation

Car enthusiasts are the way they are for a variety of reasons. I’m big on the driving experience and the visceral sensations you get behind the wheel of something that is just so damn good. But cars are also memory-making machines, either solo or with those special to you. And that’s where this 2022 Genesis …

Bringing a Jaguar F-Pace Home Was My ‘Hey Look Ma, I Made It’ Moment

In the time I’ve been reviewing new cars, there have been ostensibly cooler, faster, more expensive, and more interesting cars pass through my hands than yet another midsize sport-utility.
