Never Stop Driving: A Better Life Behind the Wheel (2019)

“Jump in the car and drive away stress and distractions”

Tech television shows, newspapers, even car magazines all talk about it. Today’s teenager and young adult isn’t interested in cars. Why? Maybe the smart phone and video game addiction? Or could it be its just a few years until we will be riding in autonomous, electric pods and they don’t even want to bother with an old mundane activity such as driving. This book brilliantly puts the future as bleak as it may be for a car aficionado on hold and takes us back to a simpler time, when our cars represented freedom, adventure and fun. When we would go to the garage and simply sit in the car and dream of driving to some exciting place or wanting to improve our driving abilities on a racetrack. Read more

The Adventure Jump Start & Portable Powerbank 6600 mAh Portable Charger manufactured by MyCharge

The Perfect Choice

BMW M5 Sedan (2018)

Car companies are like people, there are times we simply aren’t as laser focused as we should be and after a while, those that know you, will notice. Take the M5 for example, during the first two generations, this mid-sized sedan, wrote the book on what an uber-sedan should be. Agile, sharp, direct, incredibly capable, yet mature and elegant. Regrettably, the last couple of iterations, not so much, as BMW seems to have been enamored with the idea of bigger is better. The BMW faithful moaned and complained and guess what, Munich listened and they delivered. Enter the 2018 M5 and finally, the focus and the execution is laser-like once again. Welcome back BMW, we’ve missed you. Read more
