you are using wordpress so it should already be optimize. You can try turning on the cache

It cache your sides which means instead of pulling the data from the database it kept in the server memory which reduces the load from the server and loads the content faster

It sounds like it would be your host. I am not an expert when it comes to PHP, but I guess some host work better than others with PHP based websites

Your website loads a lot of stuff from external providers (youtube, 4wheelsnews.com, photobucket, quantserve...), one way to speed up the load time is putting your content on your own host.

Also your homepage is a bit too long. Perhaps shortening the blog default display and adding "Read full article" links would help you.

Photobucket is supposed to have a fast high end server and therefore have a fast download on the client browsers, but try to use your own host whenever possible.

As for 3wheelsnews, quantserve, I'm not sure exactly when they are used, I suggest you install the firebug plugin on your Firefox, and it will show you a list of elements (in the network tab), and it will also show you how many seconds each element took to load. Analyze it one by one and after a few hours of work you should have it loading a lot faster.

That blog stores images in its own host, it doesn't use photobucket or any other image server, also that blog doesn't show any youtube video in the homepage. Remember, try to put as much stuff as possible in your own hosting.

Also their page might be faster to load because it has less code.
HTML - That blog has 700 lines of HTML while yours is over 1000.
CSS - They have 600 lines of css in the main stylesheet, you have over 1300.
other loaded files - I saw that you are including a lot of .css and .js files on the homepage for WP plugins.

I'd suggest you do the following things:
-store your images in your server, but making sure that it has a good transfer rate, if not, just stick to photobucket.
-optimize your code, use only the .css and that you need on each page, you don't need to load all the .css for every plugin of your wp if you only use a few.
-try to make the html code simpler and shorter.

It's not easy, I know mate. But don't be afraid of spending hours of work in your website
