Discovering ride and risk on my Ducati Monster 796

When you’re a kid and didn't grow up riding motorcycles but love them anyway, they naturally come to feel like the juiciest of forbidden fruits – dangerous, sexy, cool AF. I can personally attest to this. I have sun-soaked memories of trips to the beach with my buddies back in high school and us watching... Continue Reading →

What’s in a name? Moto Guzzi’s reimagining of an American Icon

The cruiser market in America may be a wildly competitive place, but it still feels surprisingly unimaginative. Freeways are dominated by heavy, chrome drenched beasts that seem to have more to say about the past than the future. Harley-Davidson is the obvious 800-pound (probably more?) gorilla in the room, but a number of manufacturers have... Continue Reading →

Cars in the Wild

It was the Lamborghini’s screaming yellow paint that grabbed my attention. Driving down a busy road, I saw it out of the corner of my eye in a busy mall parking lot. My first reaction was the one I went with – slam on the brakes, turn into the Exit of a bank parking lot,... Continue Reading →

Cars in the Wild

Even over my cell phone's weak, tinny speakers, the Corvette's supercharged V8 sounds all lumpy and cammed and gorgeous. "Dad, you HAVE to listen to this."

Cars in the Wild

It's fascinating how automobiles can embody human emotions and ideas. For example, if you wanted to define "finesse" in the automotive realm, cars like the Lotus Elise or Mazda Miata would fit the bill perfectly. Both are lightweight, nimble, and give a sense of connection and fluidity like few others can. When describing the essence of... Continue Reading →

Queen City Cars & Coffee III

Queen City Cars & Coffee is back! The past two years hosting this show have been absolute blast, and I'm stoked to be putting it on again this year. Last year, over 90 cars attended, about 30 more than the first year. For QC3 (just made that name up right now and I dig it) the... Continue Reading →

Cars in the Wild

The Audi R8 first appeared on the scene back in 2007 and promptly blew everyone's collective mind. Audi is known for fast cars, but the R8 was their first foray into the savagely competitive supercar market, and its sublime chassis, all-wheel drive grip, sonorous 4.2-liter V8 engine, and striking looks made it an instant classic....
