Ballin' on a Budget: 2008-2013 Infiniti G37 Coupe

On: Tue, Dec 1, 2015 at 8:33AM | By: Teddy Field


Infiniti G37  test 2

Ballin' on a budget means that you drive a car that's new enough to look expensive, but just old enough not to be. The value of luxury cars drops like a rock because they're based on prevailing styles. But you're smart enough to make your depreciation work for you. This week's budget-friendly Blingmobile is the Infiniti G37 Coupe. It offers the perfect blend of luxury, performance, and style. And it's just cheap enough to let you ball on a budget...


Great Cars That Nobody Bought: 2008-2013 Volvo C30

Great Cars That Nobody Bought: 2008-2013 Volvo C30 test 1-1

On American roads, the 2008–2013 Volvo C30 is a bit of a unicorn. It's a sexy three-door hatchback that offers loads of style and a surprising amount of performance. Problem was, it was built by your mother's favorite car company, and nobody outside of her garden club even knew that it existed. Which is too bad, because this Volvo P1800 successor had a lot to offer...


Flashback: Chevrolet Silverado 454 SS

Flashback: Chevrolet Silverado 454 SS test 1-1

Back in 1990, engines were still measured in cubic inches, and single-digit fuel economy didn't matter. It was a glorious time; to celebrate, Chevrolet unleashed a big-block sport version of its wildly popular Silverado pickup truck. This black beast had sinister looks, a wild exhaust note, and an ozone-chomping 454 cu-in V8 under the hood. America's Heartbeat had definitely skipped a few beats...


Beater That's Hard To Beat: 2003-2008 Mazda6

Mazda6 Four Door Sedan test 2

For some people, a sportscar is just too small, and a Camry is just too boring. A BMW M5 would be the natural family car choice. But if you're reading this article, then you already know that you can't afford one. Driving pleasure is still within your reach, however, because, once upon a time, Mazda decided to become the 'BMW of Japan'. In 2003, they created the midsize Mazda 6, and, like most Bimmers, it drives just as it looks...


 

The Cars Shine At Alfa's Un-museum

Alfa Museo test 2

A stroke of luck allowed a recent visit to the recently re-opened Alfa-Romeo museum, located just on the outskirts of Milan, in Arese, near the site of the now-demolished old factory.


Ballin' on a Budget: 2004-2008 Toyota Solara Convertible

2004-2008 Toyota Solara Convertible test 2

In this series, we usually talk about affordable cars that'll still make you look good. The Toyota Solara Convertible, however, will only make you look good... in Florida. It's not that it's an ugly car, it's just that Toyota lopped the top off—for the sake of lopping the top off. And that kind of logic works only in the Sunshine State, where you will definitely look like you're ballin'...


Great Cars That Nobody Bought: Subaru Baja

Great Cars That Nobody Bought: Subaru Baja test 1-1

When most car companies build a car, they look at prevailing market trends, then design a car that meet customer demand. Subaru... doesn't. They get a drum of saké, invite the guys from the Swiss Army Knife factory, then come up with some multi-purpose survival tool that has 4-wheel drive and a big honkin' turbo. Such is the case with the 2003–2006 Subaru Baja, a car-truck hybrid that's brilliantly insane...


Hatch From Hell: Volkswagen Golf R32

Hatch From Hell: Volkswagen Golf R32 test 1-1

The traditional 'hot hatchback' is designed for the young person who wants to haul their friends and stuff, while also hauling a certain part of the human anatomy. The Volkswagen Golf R32, on the other hand, doesn't have FWD, and it doesn't look like it came in a cereal box. It has 4-wheel drive, a big engine, and a luxurious interior. Oh yeah, it's also ballistic fast, which makes it a hatch from hell...


Beater That's Hard To Beat: 2005-2009 Subaru Outback

On: Wed, Nov 11, 2015 at 8:57AM | By: Teddy Field


Subaru Outback test 2

The Subaru Outback is a station wagon that's like an SUV that's pretending to be a luxury car. Or put it another way, it's a cross-dressing mountain goat that thinks it's an opera singer. But if you live in a place that has a lot of snow, rain, or muddy dirt roads, this automotive contradiction is one beater that's hard to beat.


Cheap Thrill: 2012-2014 Dodge Avenger R/T

Cheap Thrill: 2012-2014 Dodge Avenger R/T test 1-1

In this episode, we're going to talk about the 2012-2014 Dodge Avenger R/T—a sleeper car that can make a grown Ricer cry like a teething toddler. If you don't know what a sleeper car is, just go to Google and type in "Martha Stewart cupcake recipes". If you do know what a sleeper car is, then read on. Because you just found your next cheap thrill...


Great Cars That Nobody Bought: Toyota Venza

Great Cars That Nobody Bought: Toyota Venza test 1-1

"It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Super Yoda!" The Toyota Venza is one of those cars that was just too clever for its own good. The idea was to create a sort of luxury lifestyle vehicle for people with grandkids, or 1.2 teenagers. It offered the functionality of a station wagon, the stance of a CUV, and a luxury Toyota Prius interior. Truth be told, the Venza is more confused than Bruce Jenner. But, at the same time, it's as smart as Bruce/Caitlyn's publicist. So let's wade through the contradictions and see what it's all about...
