According to CNET and Cadillac’s boss, my favorite car currently built in America lives to die another day.

The Mercedes-AMG GL63 is Absolutely Useless The Mercedes-AMG GL63 is Absolutely Useless

Absurdity. The New Oxford American Dictionary defines it as the quality or state of being wildly unreasonable. To say that word defines the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG would be harsh, but I believe that is the only word that makes sense in its twin-Turbo V8 context.

The Ford Explorer ST has Arrived, and It's Brought 400 BHP With It The Ford Explorer ST has Arrived, and It's Brought 400 BHP With It

Ford’s attempt to marginalize the ST nameplate continues with the all new Explorer ST, revealed today in lieu of the Detroit Auto Show. The Explorer ST was hinted at months before, and as they actually revealed the 2020 Explorer just a couple of days ago, it was only a matter of time before the ST was revealed as well.

Everything I Like and Dislike About the New Supra Everything I Like and Dislike About the New Supra

Well, the new Supra is finally here, after a long and perilous trail of leaks, heresay, and predictions. So far, it’s caused a bit of a stir (understandably) in the online armchair enthusiast world for a lot of various reasons. Some people love it, some think it’s a stain on the name. So, I thought I’d clear up my…

Rainy Days are No Fun Rainy Days are No Fun

Rainy days in an M235i? Much better.

2003 Hummer H2 by Maisto 2003 Hummer H2 by Maisto

Hummer is a brand that seems to hold some sort of enigma in the car world. Everyone knows the name and what they did, but you hardly see people clamoring for Hummers, even though they seem to hold such great value 10-15 years down the road. Everyone you ask seems to agree: Hummer is a thing that happened, and within…

God Damn It - A Short Story God Damn It - A Short Story

I feel like I’ve reached the lowest of lows of my search for my next car. What started out as a reasonable search with a list of rather reliable cars has spiraled out of control and landed me face to face with a car that is, to me, the equal of that girl in high school you always wanted, but thought you never had a…

Sometimes I get sad that by the time I’ve become a functioning adult with the means to buy stuff, these have become near-unobtainable

I Watched Vice Recently (Possible Politics Ahead, Beware) I Watched Vice Recently (Possible Politics Ahead, Beware)

I try not to post anything politics-wise here on Oppo, but I do like to talk about great movies that I’ve seen. Vice is one of them, in fact, it could be my favorite movie of the year.

When Oppo cares more about Kias than manual, supercharged Mustangs, does that mean Oppo is no longer Oppo?

The 2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 was a New-Age Love Letter to the Past The 2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 was a New-Age Love Letter to the Past

“Hey toss me the keys to the Mustang.” I called across to my coworker in the hopes that he didn’t know what he was standing next to.

McLaren 720S McLaren 720S

Looking quite gorgeous in Volcano Red. These things literally look like spaceships and I’ve yet to find a bad angle on one.

Possibly doing a thing (Edit: Nevermind) Possibly doing a thing (Edit: Nevermind)

So the fella who bought that 2012 V I posted about earlier traded this for it. It’s a 2005 with 79,000 miles.

Two days in and I’ve already found my number one car for 2019.

The Top Ten Cars I Drove in 2018 The Top Ten Cars I Drove in 2018

2018 has wildly come and gone, and I spent the year driving some awesome cars. Let’s look back and see which ones rose to the top.

I think I’ve found the first Mustang to speak my language.

Secret Senna arrived! Secret Senna arrived!

It’s a lovely little 1/43 Alfa Romeo Romeo! I absolutely adore it and it’ll look great amongst my 159 and Giulia.

Oppo: What are Your Thoughts on the E82 1 Series? Oppo: What are Your Thoughts on the E82 1 Series?

I just drove one of these for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. Maybe surprised enough to make one my next car? I need some info before I can proceed though.

Christmas Haul Christmas Haul

Here’s a list of everything I got for Christmas:

Merry Christmas, Ladies and Gentlemen! Merry Christmas, Ladies and Gentlemen!

Hope all is well on this day and that you all got all the presents you desired, or the well-earned day off you deserved. And if you are working, I hope nothing goes too insane for you all today.
