I’m a sucker for Baja Bugs. Those little cars were what got me into off-roading in Virginia in the first place. You can say I was a fan of the Scumbug the moment Hoonigan got theirs. If there is one thing I have vowed to own one day besides a good 4WD vehicle, it’s a […]

Chasing Baja – The Honda Ridgeline Chase Truck Part 1

I’ll be first to admit, when I asked to do a review of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline that was part of the chase team for the Class 2 Unlimited truck, I wasn’t expecting a positive answer. Working as a freelancer for top publications can get you access to people and places that can follow you […]

AutoVloggin – Pathfinder Window and Blower Motor

In this long AutoVloggin post, I try to figure out what’s going on with the window motor and blower motor on the Pathfinder before we choose what to do with the chassis. The passenger side window doesn’t go down in the 2000 Nissan Pathfinder, so I go though and figure out why it doesn’t and […]
