Road tripping is my favourite mini-adventure, so when Ford invited me to join them at the launch of the new Ford Fiesta, little did I know that I was in for a bucket list treat.
The destination was a secret, right up until I got behind the wheel of the styling new Ford Fiesta!
A car designed to Go Your Way! A car to match your attitude as you make your way up the ladder – and do it in style! And, since the new Ford Fiesta is all about making your way into the world of awesomeness, Sun City was the perfect destination to launch this fierce and feisty little car.View Post
When was the last time you jumped in your car and drove? No plans, no map and no idea where you’re headed? Those “let’s see where the open road takes us” opportunities are rare, but when they happen, that’s when you find the best best kept secrets! I spent last week, just like that. Driving around in the new Ford Mustang, with no set plan and just seeing where the road leads. One of those roads (and there were many), led me to the coolest retro styled Roadhouse, where I found the best milkshakes in Jozi. Growing up in the 90’s, we didn’t have drive through fast food joints and Roadhouses were all the rage. They were also the place to go if you wanted a thick and delicious shake to wash down a seriously loadedÂ burger, or an oozing toasted cheese. Ya know, the ones wrapped in paper with a little gherkin on top? I miss those days! So what an awesome throwback it was to find Kota Joe Roadhouse and get a blast from the past – but thisÂ time, in a trueÂ American Muscle Car. Back in the day, our parents (or grandparents for some of you) must’ve gotten quite…View Post
A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited on an epic adventureÂ with Ford South Africa. Myself, together with a whole bunch of super cool travel and lifestyle bloggers were flown out to George, and spent the day putting the newÂ Ford Ranger Auto through its paces.Â The goal; toÂ see how much fun you can have in this beast! And so much fun was had!View Post
This past week, I had the pleasure of driving the Ford B-MAX, the little car with a big attitude! Now a cool car is one thing, but one that’s kitted with all the bells and whistles makes it all the more exciting, and the B-MAX is styled with impressive features to actually claim the title of cool cat on the road…View Post
This weekend I got to test drive the cute, new Volkswagen UP! The small car, with a big attitude! The UP! is VW’s compact city car, and it’s the perfect little run around car that looks as funky as it feels. Surprisingly responsive, the 55kw engine has a decent amount of power, and considering I’m used a much bigger engine, I didn’t feel deprived – only a little when overtaking on the highway. The UP! is smaller than the VW Polo, and I think it’s way cuter and funkier. It’s almost got that up and coming yuppie attitude. At 3,54 meters long and 1,64 meters wide, one of the features I loved was being able to squeeze into small parking spaces (something I can’t do in my FJ – although I usually just climb the pavement *wink*). I love the Interior. It’s got a touch of sporty funkiness and very spacious, although I did find that there is very limited console space. When I first opened the boot I was like whhhhhatt! Where am I supposed to put my shopping?! Until I discovered a hidden compartment that practically doubles up the boot space. Such a cool feature! The model I…View Post
Wow, I had such a blast in this car! The other day, the fab folk at Hillcrest Toyota were kind enough to loan me a Toyota FJ Cruiser for the day – just for fun! I drove it round and about Durbs, and have to admit that I am totally smitten with it’s awesomeness! I want one!!! It’s bold, it’s rugged and it’s powerful! When you get behind the wheel of this beautiful beast, you can’t help but feelÂ theÂ adventureÂ junkie take over! Now, I don’t consider myselfÂ adventurousÂ at all. I avoid roller coasters and pretty much anything that gets myÂ adrenalineÂ pumping – but just one day with the FJ and I feel the urge, the need, the excitement to take it crawling up some cliffs! Not that I did, I mean we only had one day together, but you know what I mean! The FJ Cruiser is all attitude! It can go-anywhere-and-do-anything (their words not mine, and I believe them)! It’s stylish and retro with a wild side that will turn heads! Expect to be noticed behind the wheel of the FJ! I absolutely love the signature white roof, rugged black bumpers and all round aggressiveness. The FJ Cruiser isÂ an updated version of…View Post
