Southern California Mini Maniacs at the Drive-In
The Southern California Mini Maniacs car club came out to the Mission Tiki
Drive-In in Mountclair, CA to see the new Transformers movie on the big,
big screen, and to show-off their Coopers and Cooper S's. Everything from
Classic Mini's to the new R56 were in attendance, and each one was
customized in its own unique way, staying true to their claim that no two
Minis are alike.
2014 Lexus IS F Sedan
2014 Lexus IS F sedan: Say bye-bye to the brutally quick IS F
The good: The 2014 Lexus IS F's V-8 is a total hoot and pairs nicely with
the eight-speed, close ratio automatic transmission. The dated tech holds
up surprisingly well to modern standards.
The bad: Despite its advanced transmission, the engine is pretty old tech.
Fuel economy will dip into the single digits, if you're not careful.
The bottom line: The terrifically impractical 2014 Lexus IS F is the most
un-Lexus model in the lineup, but it's an absolute thriller.
Largely unchanged since its 2008 debut, the IS F is sort of the black sheep
of Lexus' lineup. With its big, inefficient V-8 and boisterous character,
it's the most un-Lexus model the automaker builds. So, I was equal parts
surprised and pleased to see that the automaker was still producing it this
late into the generation transition.
You see, the IS F sedan and the IS C convertible are the last of the
second-generation IS models, the sedans that make up the bulk of sales have
already moved on to the third-generation's awkwardly styled sheet metal.
But this will be the last year that Lexus builds this beastly brute. So, as
the 2014 IS F sedan left the Car Tech garage this week, I was bidding
farewell to the Mighty F in more ways than one.
