Stop Buying Cheap Used Sports Cars And Expecting Them To Be Perfect

In life, the curmudgeons and pessimists who think of themselves as realists will regurgitate the tired trope of “there’s no such thing as a free lunch.” While it is true that cheap steak may include some gristle, it could potentially be the best steak you’ve ever had.

Peter Egan on the Unironic Appeal of Ginormous American Land Yachts 

You know Peter Egan. You’ve been reading him for years. The man was always fiddling with a TR-3 or a Lotus Elan or a Morgan 4/4, and writing with a gallows-hued wit about fiddling with said tiny, fussy things. He’d drag home the stray, sad British thing and make it right, even if it did fall apart three times on the… » 7/31/15 3:14pm Today 3:14pm

Truly I Say To You Today That Bono Is An Asswipe

At the intersection of all the annoying things a rock star can be—messianic, pretentious, vapid, dumb, old, creatively bankrupt, grandiose, utterly bereft of self-awareness, calcified into a grotesque oily wire-rack-in-the-grocery-store knockoff of himself, part of U2, et cetera—there sits Bono in his stupid housefly… » 7/31/15 2:53pm Today 2:53pm

2016 Cadillac CTS-V: A Glorious 640 HP Exercise In Overkill

I’m coming into this review pretty conflicted. Not about the car — the new Cadillac CTS-V is an extremely impressive vehicle, and I’ll cover why in plenty of detail — I’m conflicted about what this car actually means both to Cadillac and to us Americans, as people.
