After years of school, numerous job fairs, and countless hours of networking you finally land an interview for your dream position. With your best suit pressed and multiple copies of your resume in-hand you head into your interview with high hopes. The interview feels like it is lasting an eternity, but after much back-and-forth and wiping your palms on you...

The Jeep Renegade: A Classic Jeep With Modern Flair

Posted by Harrison Elbert on May 21, 2015 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (0)



It’s starting to look a lot like summer, and that means it is time to get out into the wilderness and live big! I want to drive out of the city and find my way to a forgotten mountain stream. Or I want to go down a dirt road to reach that half-hidden trailhead. I want to throw a mountain bike in the back of my car and head...

The Subaru BRZ: A Powerful Option

Posted by Harrison Elbert on April 16, 2015 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (0)



Everyone needs a dream car. That statement may or may not be factually true, but everybody like to imagine themselves in their new, powerful, sleek and amazing car, I know I do. The problem is that when I think of what car I want it to be, the same fusty old European names inevitably come to mind, and they bring a terrifying price tag to go alon...

The Coolest SUV you've ever seen!

Who remembers playing F-Zero on their Super Nintendo? You know, back at a time when video games were actually, well… good? I know I do. For those of you in blissful ignorance of the game, the whole idea was that you hopped in these fancy, futuristic, hovering speed boats and tried to not die while racing at 800mphs. Life ...

The Porsche Macan: Dreams Become Reality

Posted by Eric Thiele on December 19, 2014 at 4:05 PM Comments comments (0)


You are striding across the glossy marble sales floor. It's waxed overwhelmingly, yet to perfection. The sleek and glimmering colors of your favorite cars reflect off every inch of the cleaned, waxed, and polished Porsche dealership. You pass the 911, the Panamera and you glare contemplatively at the Cayenne. You love all Porsches, but only one has...

The Gotham Citizen Bike: Going and Being Human

Posted by Eric Thiele on October 14, 2014 at 4:00 PM Comments comments (0)


This month's automotive review, while not actually on an automotive, definitely deserves more consideration than any of my previously reviewed cars. Not everyone is in the market for a car right now. It's the inconvenient truth that luxury cars are typically not a wise impulse buy. We have bills to pay, other desires, and damn, w...

The Audi A6: Across The Board Performance

Posted by Eric Thiele on September 16, 2014 at 4:00 PM Comments comments (0)


Similar to how I deemed the Tesla Model X, the Audi A6 is a car that has it all. When it zooms past you on the highway, it equal parts captivates you and angers you. As traffic weaves by you in your clunky sedan that accelerates and turns like a large boat, you can't help but become jealoused by the sleek, sporty, and luxurious Audi A6....

The Tesla Motors Model X: The Jack Of All Trade

Posted by Eric Thiele on August 11, 2014 at 4:00 PM Comments comments (0)


In the world of electric cars, the ads are all mostly the same.


A blunt nosed and unsightly sedan pulls into a gas station. The man who gets out of the sedan disregards the gas pumps and continues into the convenience store with his head held high as all the other drivers, amidst shelling out a small fortune to fill their cars up again,...

The 2014 Lexus IS F: Luxury Awaits

Posted by David Hoff on July 14, 2014 at 1:00 PM Comments comments (0)


During my brief stint here as Man of the Hour’s auto reviewer, I've met with my fair share of car salesmen, that amusing brand of ad-man distinguishable by a temperament as eager to sell you the car on the lot as the shirt off your back. Regardless of the quality of the product, these are men who’ve been trained to tame despera...

The 2014 Mazda 3: Zoom, Zoom, Zoom

Posted by David Hoff on June 9, 2014 at 1:00 PM Comments comments (0)


My first affair with a Mazda was a rather unpleasant one, and so I must begin by confessing an early prejudice against the brand. As a boy, I was barred from using the family Mazda for reasons concerning safety and laws and so forth. When my older brother came of age and my parents handed him the keys, I saw in his eyes the look of a man who was not, and never would be, willing to share...

When Cadillac hauled its latest CTS model to the Nurburgring motorsports complex in Germany—having finally found a suitable testing ground—intimates of the auto world perked their ears in the direction of the world-famous racetrack. When the CTS completed its final run, roaring past the finish line with a stately calm, once skep...

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Posted by David Hoff on April 14, 2014 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (0)


In its early make, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, born of calloused hands and American know-how, was a car in search of a frontier. With a rugged indifference to risk, it explored the nation’s rolling expanse from sea to shining sea, never flinching, always advancing with a will and a flag. Triumphantly unsophisticated, foolhardy as any pioneer, t...

The 2014 Kia Soul: Totally Transformed

Posted by David Hoff on March 10, 2014 at 1:00 PM Comments comments (0)


The Kia Soul will be five years old come Spring.


For most of us, the move from four to five is an affair of little moment and minor change—but car years, like dog years, are in a class all their own, governed by a different s...

The 2014 Honda Accord

Posted by David Hoff on February 10, 2014 at 1:00 PM Comments comments (0)


In the world of mid-sized sedans, the Accord is king. Though traditionally set down as a modest economy vehicle, it has in recent years taken on new dimension, drifting quietly in design toward its luxury cousin, the Acura (which is owned by Honda), while still maintaining its station as America’s ol...

It’s hard to find a more prestigious, exotic name in cars than Maserati, so it should come as no surprise that that prestige is well-earned. This Italian luxury manufacturer, founded on the 1st of December in 1914, and currently he...
