GBXM|united > YEAR OF THE SNAKE: SEX PANTHER

What makes a vehicle sexy? How about a twin-turbocharged V8 under the hood of a retired Police Interceptor? Yeah. 60% of the time, it works every time. And it's made from bits of real Cobra, so you know it's good.

GBXM|united > POP! GOES THE GREENER GRASS

On my way to work this past Monday morning, I found myself admiring one of my all-time favorite cars. That's when it happened...

GBXM|united > Seat (Ibiza) of the Pants

It's been 2+ years since I interviewed Darren Jones, the guy with the £40 Skoda Felicia who regularly enters Wales Rally GB. Now that homologation on the Felicia has expired, he's got a new car. We talk about homologation, obstacles, achievments, and broken axles.

This is actually very cool. I bet the people here in America who bitch the most about the price of fuel are the same people sitting in their V8-powered trucks with the AC running on their lunch breaks or hauling ass all by themselves around town because NASCAR. 

We have it really, really good in America. Buy a smaller car. Pay it off.

+Drew Wallner got this whole thing started. Figured I'd share how it all played out. I'm just a car guy in Phoenix with an interest in one day moving to Portland who was intrigued by what he read here.

Thanks to +Grizwald Grim +Barry Cochran +Shawn Adams +Lisa Silvey +Chris Baskind & +Ken Gerts for sharing their perspectives with my gearhead readers, and +Ben Latterell for generously providing pictures of Portland to accompany the text. Couldn't have done this without you!

GBXM|united > It's official: Gearbox Magazine Issue #1

If you've already seen the first issue, thank you. This is the official announcement on the site, along with insights into format variance, pricing, and how to get a 100% free, lifetime subscription to the magazine.

Looking to switch Gmail accounts - not just move email. Any ideas?

Example:
account1@gmail.com to account2@gmail.com
> How do I keep my account1 calendar & google+ while making account2 my primary presence online?

Ironically, Googling this hasn't proven helpful.

GBXM|united > GOING WITHOUT A CAR IN PORTLAND

People who bus/bike/book-it around Portland shared their thoughts on being car-less with a gearhead from Phoenix. Interesting...

Hot off the (digital) press. First ever issue of Gearbox Magazine.

It's got some issues, but it's done and it's out there and I learned a lot.

Your feedback is appreciated.
