Nebraska is a film about life in grayscale. Our minds, our memories and the past are not always just black and white. They exist in a shade of gray, not just partially remembered, but rather selectively remembered.
In the film we are introduced to Woody Grant, played by Bruce Dern, and his son David, played by Will Forte along with a slew of other hilariously unique characters like Woody’s wife, Kate, played by June Squibb. Woody is in the twilight of his life and on the cusp of dementia. He thinks he won a million bucks after receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail. [keep reading]

The Wolf of Wall Street is one of the most graphic and excessive movies I have ever seen. As a consequence, the outstanding vehicle lineup is overshadowed by a barrage of white collar crime, drugs, and naked women. But seriously, the cars are downright impressive.
Most of the fly whips belong to Jordan Belfort, a Wall Street weasel played by my favorite actor, Leonardi DiCaprio. Be warned, Leo does not always treat his sports cars (or anything else for that matter) with the respect that they deserve. Over the course of the film, Jordan’s modes of transportation chronicle his progression up the socioeconomic ladder. In the opening scene, he’s taking the bus to his first day on Wall Street. A few scenes later, his hair is slicked back and he is whipping a twosome of classic Jags. Soon enough, he’s gunning it down the highway in a Miami Vice-inspired white Ferrari while his wife, well, never mind.
It’s all helicopters, yachts, and Lambos from that point on. Oh, and his buddies have some flashy rides as well. [keep reading]

For another, there are dealerships out there who have made some great local commercials and and they deserve to be honored. Here are five car dealerships that are doing it right.

Yesterday, we gave you the top 15 most American-made cars. Nonetheless, there are other ways to measure the American-ness of a car: the history of a brand, the look of a car, the feeling of the suspension, the roar of a true American V8.
Today, we bring you 15 cars that embody the American car manufacturing ideals and history like no others. They reflect the same excellence within diversity that makes this nation what it is.

In a recent poll on the Mojo Motors Facebook page, fans we’re asked, “What’s the most boring track used in the Sprint Cup Series?” There were over 800 responses with the majority of critiques falling on the road courses – Sonoma and Watkins Glen. Almost every track was called out and those included Darlington, Martinsville and even Bristol.
In some NASCAR circles, calling out those legendary racetracks is blasphemous, but calling out the road courses is a popular pastime amongst fans. The same goes for courses longer than 1.5 miles because massive gaps between the leader and rest of pack can sometimes form. Keep reading to see what made the list as the most boring NASCAR tracks.

Buick’s image is changing again. The once vibrant and exciting brand turned stale and boring in the 90′s only to have an early 21st century comeback.

They also have some of the most amazing concept cars built over the past decades which is surprising for a brand that GM left for dead in the 90′s. Here are some of the best you may have never seen before. [keep reading]
When shopping for a car, being a stalker is highly recommended by Mojo Motors. In fact, it’s the best way to find the best price on the best used car or truck. When you are not shopping for a car, however, being a stalker is not recommended.
We already talked about how to use Mojo Motors while shopping for a car, but we decided to write an alternative post replacing ‘Follow’ with words like stalking. Sure, ‘Follow’ is our word of choice on the website, but stalk is a suitable synonym and a bit more interesting too. [keep reading]
