Review: Lexus RC F Coupe a Conversation Starter

I did more than my fair share of meet and greets during a test drive of the 2015 Lexus RC F, 2-door coupe. I talked to everybody and anybody. On one occasion, a bicyclist was glued to my tail as I drove a couple of blocks searching for a parking spot in downtown Denver.

This four-door large sedan, featuring a 2.5-liter four-cylinder hybrid engine, is roomy for passengers in the front and back, and as expected with a hybrid, quite efficient on fuel for its class.

Review: City Driving With the Tundra TRD Pro

I was happy to go down memory lane in preparation for a test drive of the 2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, my first pickup truck to drive – ever. My memories of a pickup truck are rooted in my childhood, riding in the back of my uncle’s truck down the country roads of the big state of Texas. He often drove his nieces and nephews on dirt roads leading to the river to go fishing or just to ride on a Sunday afternoon. I remember the breeze blowing in our faces and our tight grips on the side as we braced for the next bump, not knowing if we were going to fall out of the truck. And always laughter.
