Just over 70 years ago, Toyota rolled out the first-ever Land Cruiser. I wasn’t around at the time, but I’m guessing people were ready to stick it in the mud at first sight. It looked like a truck kind of thing. It looked rough and ready for off-roading.
As part of NASCAR’s revised 2020 schedule, the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 – originally scheduled for March 15, 2020 – will take place at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday, June 7, at 3:00 p.m. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the race will take place without spectators in attendance as part of NASCAR’s effort to bring live competition back to a worldwide broadcast audience on FOX and PRN.

My car reviewing hobby began five years ago in the 2015 RAV4, and as much as I loved that vehicle (my original review column is included below this one), the 2020 version is even better. Continue reading →
Years ago, when I lived in the Midlands of England, a European friend of mine was falsely accused of stealing jewelry from an elderly couple’s house. The husband of the jewelry’s owner showed up one Sunday at church where we and other friends attended, and he brought this charge to the pastor. My friend was terrified, and I was furious.

Last year, we reviewed the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback, which was way more fun than we expected, and recently we reviewed the 2020 Corolla Hybrid, which was way more practical and economical than expected. Corollas haven’t always been the most exciting model, and to be fair, they’re not really in the most exciting new car segment, but Toyota has knocked the ball out of the park two years running with them.

I get why a lot of people, even those claiming to be Christians, turn to self-help books instead of the Bible when they want to change something about themselves. The Bible can be a bit blunt, and I suppose we humans like to be coddled. Continue reading →
The Mazda Miata is one of the last true roadsters still in production. Sure, it’s a subjective argument, but it’s one I’m willing to make after having the 2019 MX-5 for a week’s review. Continue reading →
You just never know with us automotive journalists. Sometimes we’re reviewing vehicles in the calendar year before the model year (reviewed a couple of 2020s in 2019), and sometimes, though more rarely, we might review a model the year after.
In my case, I didn’t get the keys to the 2019 Lexus NX 300 until right around the time the 2020 models were hitting showroom floors, so I held off publishing my review until I could learn more about the newer model.
It’s amazing how much ground you cover when you read the first few chapters of the Bible.
The first chapter of Genesis, which is only 31 verses long, takes you through all six days of creation. The second chapter goes back and gives more detail of what God performed in those six days, and then by the first verse of Chapter Three, we meet “the serpent”. By the end of that third chapter, mankind has already fallen and been driven from the Garden of Eden. That’s some action-packed reading. Continue reading →
