What happens when you have an automaker that learns about going fast by winning races on one of the world's greatest stages? You wind up with truly superior road-going cars, and you're obviously talking about McLaren.
Meet the Nissan GT-R LM Nismo. This car will race this year at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the Le Mans Prototype 1 (LMP1) class.
For me, the Cadillac Escalade has always been a bit of a guilty pleasure vehicle. This is a machine that I shouldn't like, but for some reason I'm oddly attracted to said vehicle. I once took a 900-mile road trip in a last-generation Escalade Platinum Hybrid. With four adults seated comfortably, the journey was a…
The crossover world is moving in a sporty direction. Porsche is set to drop the Macan upon the world, Mazda has the fun-to-drive CX-5 available for the working-class enthusiast, and Audi offers up the SQ5.

It's the final episode of season one. This time Jael and I are in a '70 Roadrunner traveling to a few more spots in W. Virginia. This includes stopping by the land of a guy who OWNS a cave, and then hitting a great local food spot before joining a few folks for a classic car get together.
Episode 5 of American Detours brings myself and host Jael De Pardo to West Virginia. The featured car is a 1965 MGB and we hit up the New River Gorge Bridge before heading off to The Greenbrier Hotel.
In the first episode, myself and my co-host took in some sights alongside Louisiana's Creole Nature Trail in a 1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie. Now we're back on the same trail but this time our ride is a 1971 Ford Mustang.
It's time for another episode of the Hooniverse Podcast... Roger Ebert called it the greatest podcast of our generation, but he didn't write it down so I can't prove that. Regardless, it's back and cars are the subject of discussion. They're always the subject, but they're the subject again here.
Apparently it's Pimp-Your-Car-Show Day, because I've got one I want to share with you. As excited as I am for Mr. Harper's new show Fast Lane, I'm even more excited for my own web-series called American Detours.
