The Uber-Official, Highly Accredited, Almost Entirely Accurate Motorhead Mama Stoned Driver’s Test

Ever since pot started wafting it's way out of High Times and into the mainstream, plenty of people are panicked.  From the chilly highways of Colorado to the swampy streets of Florida, marijuana is enjoying all kinds of loosened restrictions and this has got law enforcement freaked out. And with good reason for with alcohol, you've got a breathalyzer.  But with pot, what have you got?  Nothing but...

Dude, or Douchebag: Roadside Safari

It all started with one, West Hollywood zebra.  Like most tragic tales do.  One afternoon, I spotted a crazy-looking zebra car parked in front of my office.  And it went a little somethin' like this: So, of course, I ran out and paced around the thing, looking for some type of clue.  It must have a "Save The Zebras" magnet on the side or perhaps the driver side door would read "Zebra...

Car Slut Confessions: A Man(ual) On The Side

Alright. You want the truth? I'm not satisfied at home. Nope, not even close. On the outside, it all looks perfect– I get all the action I want, with a real hottie, the type most women would kill for, but when it comes to giving me real joy, we just don't connect. I am of course talking about my daily drive. I drive a luxury SUV, which for...

The Motorhead Guide to Hawaii

As the fearless observer of what's happening on the streets, I sometimes feel like it's not fair for me to only cover the manicured boulevards of Beverly Hills or the magnificent roads of Malibu. Sometimes I need to keep it real. So I recently headed to Hawaii. Here's the thing about the Aloha State.  People who've never been there like to say 'it's too commercialized', 'too touristy' or the latest:...

Freak of The Week: Beachside Van Man

  What the hell is that, you ask?   I have no idea.  But I know I'm lovin' it, mainly because it represents everything that's missing here on the Westside of LA.  It's thrifty, it's wacky and it doesn't give two spark plugs about what you think. First of all, he's got the homemade bull bars complete with lights and spirals. Like they say down on the farm– nothing keeps the cattle...

Only In LA: Prius Playhouse

It was recently announced that after 2 years of being the top selling car in California, the Toyota Prius has been knocked out of the #1 slot by the Honda Accord.  And, I'm not gonna lie, this makes me sad. Mainly because I've had so much fun Prius bashing.  It's been such an easy target: a soulless, soundless, hatchback with about as much sex appeal as a naked Rob Ford selfie.  It's been...

Dog Bless America

This Independence Day, I'm thinking about dogs.  Because the only thing that's better than driving a great car on a beautiful road is doing so with a canine co-pilot. And there's no better image of freedom than a dog with its head gleefully perched out of a car window, with the wind rushing through its gums– except for this dog in a Mercedes convertible rolling down Melrose: So here's...
