Woman Wins $90 Million Dollar Lottery, Buys Really Boring Car  

As car enthusiasts, we all have what I call "the list." The list of dream cars we would buy if we got some massive windfall of money. I know the first two cars on my list are an E63 wagon and probably a 911 GTS.

Why Buy A Toyota Highlander When You Could Have A 507 HP Mercedes?

This week alone I've spoken with three people interested in buying a new 2015 Toyota Highlander. I tell them these are hot sellers with little discounts and they really should consider a minivan like a Sienna. "No way, minivans are not cool!" Little do they know about the monster that is the R63. » 12/04/14 1:39pm 12/04/14 1:39pm
