The Beast

The Truth vs. Fiends: Obama’s Caddy Edition

It’s official nickname is “Stagecoach” but according to MSNBC, the Secret Service has taken to calling Barrack’s Caddy, “The Beast.” Anyway you slice it, Obama’s got a pretty cool ride. I was taken aback by just how cool it was when I saw video of it rolling down Pennsylvania Ave dwarfing big Chevy SUVs. Seriously, [...]

The Truth vs. Fiends: Porsche/Audi/Volkswagen Edition

On today’s edition of The Truth vs. Fiends (first in a while, admittedly) Mr. Justin and I get into about the BlueSport concept and what it means  to VW, Audi and of course Porsche.

The Truth vs. Fiends: What Jonny Drives Edition

That’s not me, but I had an identical car. Bought it back in October 2001. A 2002 WRX Wagon. And man, I used to chew up parking lots. The black ‘Rex was my first performance car. Since then I’ve gotten into this whole auto journo thing. What a long, fast, high G, squealy tire, burning [...]

The Truth vs. Fiends: Brown Edition

Oh, that Jonny Lieberman and his crackpot theories.

In today’s Truth vs. Fiends podcast, we discuss brown’s new popularity, as well as the Panamera’s potential weird/coolness, [...]

Oy…

The Truth vs. Fiends: LA Auto Show Edition

You are looking at the Jeep Renegade Concept from last year’s Detroit Auto Show. We’re not saying Detroit is dead (yet) but judging by their displays the Big 2.8 might as well be.

Bentley Brooklands

The Truth vs. Fiends: Hardtop Trumps Droptop Edition

Can I get a Flavor Flav-style, “Yeeeeeah Boyyeee?” That’s a Bentely Brooklands and you don’t have to dig very deep in my Anglophile heart to discover the fact that I think it’s one of the most desireable cars in the world. If not actually the most lustworthy. You can bet your crumpets that Mr. justin [...]

Pontiac G8 Ute

The Truth vs. Fiends: We Heart the G8

No really — we heart it. Read the review! But, predictably, the reports are saying that the G8 ain’t going to live to have children. This is the end of the line. Good bye. Luckily for me, a GXP Ute Camino ST version with a 6-speed manny-tranny will exist before GM pulls the plug in 2012 [...]
