What Defines a Crossover? What Defines a Crossover?

To many on Oppo, a crossover is a demon spawn from the darkest depths of hell. While that may be somewhat true, there seems to be a lot of misconceptions as to what actually constitutes as a crossover. I see a lot of people that seem to call every new, tall, 5-door vehicle, no matter what’s underneath. It’s true that…

This is Every Car Currently Sold by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles This is Every Car Currently Sold by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles

As it sits, FCA is the world’s eighth largest automaker, holding the rights to ten automakers, and various other aftermarket subsidiaries along the way. If you ask me, they’re a modern day British Leyland, filled with multiple struggles and cases of company in-fighting between different models, but that’s really a…

Another week, another big boy SL for sale. Another week, another big boy SL for sale.

This time it’s an ‘04 SL600 for $9000. Suspension is past knackered, but I wager it could use a little love. Updated with extra photo and start-up vid.

Reminder that the mid-1990s Aston Martin V8 Vantage came with the steering wheel out of a Ford Crown Victoria.

Bad decision senses are tingling. Bad decision senses are tingling.

The DB11 AMR Might Be the Best-Looking Aston Martin in a While The DB11 AMR Might Be the Best-Looking Aston Martin in a While

While Aston Martin is no stranger to good-looking cars, sometimes they manage to put all the right ingredients together to make something truly special. Think of cars like the DBS V12 from ten years ago, the DB7 GT before it, or the Oscar India Vantage before then. While the regular DB11 is a beautiful car in its own…

I'm Admittedly Underwhelmed by the Gladiator (for an Extremely Petty Reason) I'm Admittedly Underwhelmed by the Gladiator (for an Extremely Petty Reason)

Well, finally after so many years of pleading, begging, and crying for it, Jeep has finally given all the Jeep bros what they wanted: a Jeep truck. The new Gladiator is essentially a JL Wrangler with the addition of a decently-sized pickup bed, and will surely be an instant smash hit. But, while the reveal is being…

While back I posted my purchase of a Seiko 5 Sports 100M, my first serious watch since I was a kid. As of today i can finally wear it, and I’m bloody proud.

I'm selling some 1/24s!! I'm selling some 1/24s!!

For all interested parties, I’m letting go of some of my 1/24s, a lot of which have been featured previously on LaLD. The reason for this sale is that I’m looking to open up some room for bigger additions fo my collection, as of right now I’m selling three cars, but I may be adding more later on.

2000 BMW Z8 by Maisto 2000 BMW Z8 by Maisto

Everyone knows the tale of the BMW 507, BMW’s sexy little roadster of the 1950s that took the jet set by storm, to the point that even the King himself owned one. It was a design and legacy that always firmed itself into the history of our favorite Bavarian brand, with only a few concepts from the company holding that…

The Kia Forte GT is the 6-speed Korean Sport Compact You Never Knew You Wanted The Kia Forte GT is the 6-speed Korean Sport Compact You Never Knew You Wanted

While gathering resources for an upcoming review on another Korean sports car, I found out that Kia revealed a new sporty Forte at SEMA that no one seems to be talking about. It’s the 2020 Forte GT, sporting a more athletic bodykit, some more pep in its step, and most importantly, a six-speed manual transmission. The…

I posted about buying this a while back but it finally arrived yesterday, my new watch, and my first watch I’ve bought since I was a kid.

TIL this exists.

I think I'm going crazy I think I'm going crazy

Help me out here, cause I think I’m having a bit of a Mandela effect with a certain Daimler-Chrysler era car. I vaguely remember that there was one American car built during that era from either Chrysler, Dodge, or Jeep that had the infotainment mounted to the bottom of the center stack.

BlueMazda2 came to visit me at work.

2011 Hyundai Equus - The Genesis of Genesis 2011 Hyundai Equus - The Genesis of Genesis

In the late 1980s, the world’s leading Japanese automakers took the world by an absolute storm by focusing on an idea and running with it. That idea: the fact that a luxury brand can survive and thrive without a legacy. In the near 30 years since, those brands, Lexus, Acura, and Infiniti, have created their own legacy…
