About a year ago, “Drive…He Said” got our hands on a trackable/ streetable sports coupe that won’t break the bank: the 2014 Scion FR-S . Sentiments = Mostly keen on this Frankenstein-ed and Portmaneau-ed Toyobaru (or Subayota), once past the challenging ingress, minimalist instrumentation, lower-rent materials and miniscule rear seat. Was it the: A) Affordable to... Read more »

Great if you want to feel “younger.” Car manufacturers have the luxury of playing “faster and looser” with an automobile’s  “birth reference point.” They can cite variables like “date... Read more »

2013 Ford Mustang V6 - A Wild Horse They Tamed

The 2013 Ford Mustang V6 starts at a nearly unbeatable value of $22,400. Our Premium tester, fitted with niceties such as a SelectShift six-speed automatic transmission, leather sport seating and trim, HD navigation with voice commands, and Performance Pack topped out at $33,000.

We considered erecting a monument to the tank tread traction provided by some pricey Pirelli Sottozero winter tires. Fun as the Mustang GT is with 415 full-size ponies bursting... Read more »

"Drive...He Said" Nice Posterior - 2011 Ford Mustang GT tail blinkers

"Drive...He Said" Nice Posterior - 2011 Ford Mustang GT tail blinkers
Tail turn-lamps aka blinkers on cars and light trucks. Talk about function over form. Boring. Rarely do they receive the amount of attention from designers as do front head-lamp assemblies. It makes little sense because, when you think about it, drivers spend more time in traffic ogling the derrieres of vehicles than their visages. And... Read more »
