    "You did what?" an employee at the MGM asked, as Head of Sales John Acton and I stood before her, tired, and wearing the sort of cologne that can only be earned from nearly 30 hours of driving through the desert.  "That was pretty stupid," she continued.  Neither of us had the energy to...

    At SEMA, things aren't always as they appear.  Take this Karmann Ghia for example, finished in candy green and featuring a custom interior, it fits the mold of today's hot rod scene.  But where we'd expect to see some sort of big displacement air-cooled lump, we were instead greeted by a Subaru...

    SEMA's North Hall is a fairly diverse place, where nearly any company that considers themselves under the heading of "Collision and Repair" sets up shop.  As such, it's aisles seem to be a bit less trafficked than the more in-your-face South and Central halls, even though there are always more...

    The widebody look was definitely a thing this year at SEMA, but very few were able to pull it off as well as Legacy Innovations' Corrado.  Starting with the already aggressive factory fender treatment, Legacy added an additional 2" to each side via custom-made metal flares, allowing the Corrado...

    There are many questions that can be prefaced by “What if…” and this 2016 VW Jetta GLI 2.0T is the answer to the question, “What if Volkswagen were to offer a MOMO Edition of its successful sports compact.” The result is a vehicle that is best described as OEM-plus. It maintains all of the...

    Like so many brilliant ideas before it, it all started over a beer.  "I haven't done anything stupid in a really long time", I told John Acton, our Head of Sales.  Sure, we are both fortunate enough to travel for work quite often, but the resulting inconsistency in personal schedules doesn't...

    Now that MOMO's 2015 SEMA project Jetta GLI is sounding the part, thanks to an exhaust system from Milltek, it's time to focus making the car more dynamic from a driving perspective.  Namely, it's time to address brakes and suspension, with help from OEM suppliers and aftermarket superstars...

    When we last left you, MOMO had officially broken ground on their 2015 SEMA project, installing a P3 Cars Vent-Mounted Boost Gauge.  It was just the first of many modifications, but arguably one of the most important due to the fact that in many ways the car will act as a testbed for quite a few...
