Dad Finds Out His Son is Sleeping With His Car

We all have our own little twerks here and there, some of us even have addictions, but this kid is on a whole new level.


Love is Love. Right?

Thank goodness for The Learning Channel and it's educational content.  What would we do, if we had never learned about strange addictions, especially car addictions.  If not taken seriously, our own love for our cars could get out of hand, escalating quickly until we have no one else left to love.

The New Ford Focus RS

Ford revealed the new Focus RS this morning on their Facebook page and other Medias.

Inside EVO also released a new new video going over the details of the new car right after the release.

So far... We know that the new Focus RS will be sold world wide and features Fiesta-esk  Rally Cross styling and a Formula one inspired rear end.

The front grille has been designed specifically for air flow, featuring more a honey-comb mesh than a plastic as seen on the new 2015 WRX STI.

EVO reported that ford was "coy" on the new engine only telling them of a 6800 RPM Redline and that it will come with the 2.4 Liter Eco-Boost from the UK Mustang, but with new reinforced cylinders, heads and head gaskets for increased heat tolerance.  The eco-boost turbo will have a new Twin Scroll design.  The new RS will also have Torque Vectoring, 4wd drive train, up to 70% transfer to rear end and 100% to front end control along with lateral grip of 1G.
Ford Boasts of controlled over-steered drifts on tracks, Brembo Brakes, Adjustable Suspension, new front knuckles and shorter link arms for the front end with stiffer everything all around.


  The price tag is not yet known, but EVo is guessing an HP range of over 350hp and under 30,000 Euros.   (probably about 32-35,000 USD)


The interior is staged with blue-stitching on the steering wheel and Recaro Seats with RS stitching that will match the paint job.  The steering wheel has adapted to, and looks very similar to the Subaru 2015 STI and WRX, featuring a a sport flat bottomed wheel and aggressive styling. We actually see a lot of similarities between the two makers.  

The car will come in 5 colors.
Liquid Blue (Show Cars Only)
Stealth Grey
Absolute Black
Frozen White
Nitrous Blue


SuperCars of London also showed a sneek peek of PRO Rally driver KEN BLOCK showing off a little bit in the new ride.

Hyundai's Exobaby

Have you seen this?

This Hyundai Ad has gone viral on social media,  with over 14 million views on Youtube.   The baby's exosuit in the ad symbolizes Hyundai's new in car safety tech that detects irregularities on the road. It looks to be another set up like Subaru's eyesight.  It's a bit odd, or... Creepy.  How does this make you feel?

Utah Car Cents Gas Tip

See a tanker at the gas station?  Keep Driving...



We have spoken about this from time to time on the Radio Show and Podcast, but we thought this a great tip for the blog as well. Gasoline goes through quite the refining process, but small particles still make through from time to time and eventually build up.  In turn, these particles can eventually end up in your own gas tank and cause problems. These problems can become a serious issue when it comes time to refill that gas tank of yours. Filters become clogged,  fuel gets cut off and engines can misfire. 


When the giant tanks at the gas station are replenished, all the new fuel coming in stirs up the sediment at the bottom, which then makes it easier to get into your tank.  So if you are in need of gas and see a tanker at the station, wait a bit or keep on driving.  Once the new fuel has been replaced and has settled, all the gunk will end up on the bottom of the tank again, making it much harder to find its way into your car.

Tis the Season for Car Shopping

Adage.com Reports Strong Selling December for Lexus, Mercedes and more.


The Auto industry usually has a tremendous budget when it comes to advertising and marketing spend.  Lexus launched their traditional December to Remember event for Christmas this year, (seen below)  and they are now celebrating a great month.




Mercedes has had a good month as well, pushing their 2015 Mercedes C Class.


 Audi, Mercedes and Subaru are trending this month as well.


The Auto Industry still seems to be thriving considering the consumer index has had a slow growth since November, ending at 92.6 from the expected 94, as described by the Wall Street Journal. 2014 was kind of an off year for Car companies and the Super bowl this year. Many of the commercials fell short of expectation or were just flat out weird demonstrating oddly shaped creatures, red pills, blue pills and angel wings.

We'll continue to watch the trends and report on the best and worst selling cars of the year.
