After a nearly two year hiatus, I’m pleased to announce the return of Gearbox Magazine! We’re officially re-launching in January, but expect to resume publishing in December.
Are you a revolutionary gearhead? Are you on our list? If so, get ready. The next email is scheduled for tomorrow, October 6th, 2016, at 6AM MST (GMT-7).
I’ve already mentioned living on Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas. Riding the 3-wheeler, getting bit by the same dog twice, Dad’s brand new Chevy conversion van – the one stolen/repo’d our first week in Detroit. What I didn’t mention was Fort Bliss was where my brother and I had our first run-in with a Volvo.
It’s been over two months since the last time I published anything here. Could this be the end of Gearbox Magazine? Part of me says yes. Part says no.

If you hadn’t noticed, I’ve shifted towards more storytelling here lately. I’m trying to post more often; working on my gearhead autobiography.

Tracking suggests my 1975 Lesney Atlas will arrive tomorrow. That’s my earliest gearhead memory. I have others.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be a gearhead. To me, that was better than being anything else. To be a gearhead was to explore the world.
GBXM has always been about gearheads like us; people who get it. We love shiny new cars and car parts. But while the cars might bring us together, it’s the things we do — together — that keeps us coming back.
It’s hard to say, who ya are these days, But you run on anyway, don’t you baby? You keep runnin’ for another place, To find that saving grace.

When I first started up the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, the range read more than 600 miles. Six-hundred miles. So, I went and figured out how I could spend those miles as quick as possible. The eco-efficiency of the Sonata Hybrid isn’t just about taking you wherever the road takes you, but where you go […]

For decades, Nissan has had a strong tie between driving and having fun, with engineering enthusiasm that borders on the ultra-geeky – and I like that. So, naturally, that would extend to the all new 2015 Nissan Maxima.
