Bell & Ross AeroGT For the First Time, a Watchmaker Makes a Car... and It's a Legit Concept Car. Meet the AeroGT.

For the First Time, a Watchmaker Makes a Car… and It’s a Legit Concept Car. Meet the AeroGT and BR 03-92 and BR 03-94 Watches that Go with It. AeroGT. Good name for a concept car but not a name you’d expect from a watchmaker. Actually, there’s nothing about watchmaker Bell & Ross’ AeroGT concept car that’s expected. Just let that sink in for a second… the concept car was created by Bell...

2016 Cadillac CTS-V and ATS-V Track Test Review Taking to the Track with Cadillac's Two Big Dogs

Taking to the Track with Cadillac’s Two Big Dogs, the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V and 2016 Cadillac ATS-V. While Top Gear frequently refers (or should I say referred) to itself as a “poky little motoring show,” they did so with the utmost irony as they are, in fact, the yardstick by which all other motoring media are measured. TickTickVroom is in reality a poky little motoring blog. So, when we get invited to do something...

Mishimoto Performance Cold Air Intake: 2015 Subaru WRX STI Build, Part 2 Installing a Mishimoto Performance Cold Air Intake

Installing a Mishimoto Performance Cold Air Intake The Mishimoto Performance Cold Air Intake is officially the first performance install for my little-ole 2015 Subaru Impreza WRX STI. And, thus far, I’m quite happy with it. Like I said in my first build post, while I’ve done pretty much every repair you can imagine on a car, this is my first real performance wrenching. So, I decided to start with an easy upgrade that may...

The Forester STI SUV We’ve All Been Waiting for Is Finally Here… Sort of… Christmas has come early this year for Subaru fans, more so for Subaru fans in Japan.

2015 Jeep Renegade: Here Comes the Baby Jeep

People are calling the 2015 Jeep Renegade a baby SUV or a Cute Ute.  I myself just called it the Baby Jeep two seconds ago in this post’s headline.  But, truth be told, the 2015 Jeep Renegade is a (semi-) serious, off-road SUV that is fully worthy of carrying the Jeep badge atop those seven vertical grill slats.   The 2015 Jeep Renegade broke cover at the Geneva Motor Show last month, but it has since made its US debut at...
