He’s done it again.. mild-mannered Norm Dewitt has managed to put together another insider racing tech book that both fans and engineers can enjoy and learn from.

I say “mild-mannered” because this guy is always around, quietly getting the straight stuff from the right people.

The time has come to ask the big question, is new-new better, or does new-old school rule the day? In this case, is it the Land Rover Velar that gets the public salivating? Or, would the E.C.D. RRC cause buyers to yank out their wallets? One thing’s for sure, it’s a dog eat dog world and let the best SUV survive!

If Looks Could Sting: 2018 Kia Stinger GT1

Apparently, not all thrill rides are attached to steel tracks in amusement parks. My need for speed is satisfied in spades by the car I’m currently road testing. It’s a spacious, powerful head turner and, believe it or not, it’s a Kia. The 2018 Kia Stinger GT1 is quickly putting a smile on my face. I enjoy driving to begin with but put me in a car with good looks and plenty of power under the hood and I’m a very happy guy.

I can usually tell how I’m going to approach a review I feel the moment I schedule the return. When it was time to hand over the keys to the handlers of the Lexus LC500h, the feeling was one of pure relief.

This entry in the great LACar journal in the cloud will be more of an “impression” than a full-out review … my own background (and foreground as well) making it somewhat difficult to view “DIRT” in any sort of a non-partisan light.

Keeping things fresh—it’s a trick that can be difficult. Last year’s Classic Auto Show in LA was fantastic. I went two days in a row, and the second was better than the first, as I detailed for LA Car. At the time, I wondered—would it be the same next year? Not that that would invalidate it, but you know the thing that happens. You go once, you go again, and you realize the third time that you’ve done this enough.

More often than not, we all see things at least a little (and sometimes vastly) differently from each another. Our interpretation of colors, sounds, and even our feelings of cars change based on our age, geographic area, and socio-economic background, just to name a few reasons.

Occasionally, stepping out of our comfort zone and delving into the thoughts of others provides some curious insight. In this case, LACar is peering into the mind of one special 14-year old, Steven Aghakhani.
