The Volkswagen Jetta: Why Can't I Just Say No?

The Volkswagen Jetta: Why Can't I Just Say No?
The other day I came to the realization that I have personally owned a lot of vehicles. Sitting down and doing the math, I have basically averaged one vehicle for each year I am old. This is actually quite impressive considering that I am not (nor have ever been) independently wealthy nor am a card... Read more »

Beating Nature: Staying Safe While Chasing Storms

My heart goes out to those who were impacted by the recent tornados that ravished Oklahoma and claimed the lives of experienced storm chasers.

    Johnny Bones

    My goal in life is to have "been there, done that" be the answer to most questions asked of me. Despite the lack of a map and compass, I am an explorer and always seeking out new challenges. People have referred to me as a "renaissance man" and to be honest- I can't think of a better description for myself. For years, I have always had a lust for the automobile and I am grateful that the staff at ChicagoNow has given me this opportunity to share my passion with you. In addition to researching the latest trends in automobile design and engineering, I am also an expert on web streaming video and enjoy spending time behind the camera as either a producer and/or photographer. By blogs are always open to comment, discussion or ridicule, so please feel free to engage with me.
