Hitting the Road
All summer long, I kept telling my kids we would take a mini-vacation somewhere around the state.  Well after zoo camp, several trips to the local water-park and a bank-busting visit to Six Flags, school has started and we haven’t left the city limits.  So, I’ve decided to take my miniature compadres on a road trip to the Texas coast for Labor Day.  Now, the planning begins.  Swimsuits-check, sunscreen-check, dvd players to prevent me from throwing children from moving vehicle-check, scheduled maintenance for car-uh oh.  My car isn’t old, but it isn’t new either. The last thing I need is… Read More

Recently, I reviewed the 2012 Chevy Camaro and it’s a wonderful car for the price. However, it has some serious competition with the 2012 Ford Mustang V6. Watching car companies like Ford, Chevy, and Dodge redesign classic American muscle cars in recent years has been a joy and the new Ford Mustang gives gear heads a lot of bang for their buck. The 2012 Ford Mustang comes standard with a 305-HP V6 engine. Ford has been working hard on making their engines a bit greener and amazingly the 305-HP engine gets 31mpg on average. Even more unbelievable is the price!… Read More

I've seen this Chevy ad everywhere lately!  This commercial definitely made me laugh, but it also made me rush online and look up the new 2012 Chevy Camaro SS.  This car is truly stunning and comes with: 426hp V8 engine, 20 inch alluminum wheels, Brembo disc brakes, Heads Up Display (HUD) Interior features include leather seats, Boston Acoustics nine-speaker stereo system, and Bluetooth wireless technology.  The 2012 Camaro SS starts at around $35,000, but you can get the base Camaro LT starting at $22,000.  The base model comes stock with a 312-hp V6, which isn't too shabby.
