I was talking to a friend about how I personally want to do this. My father drove an MGB in the winter in Canada when he was younger. I have a '63 Austin Healey but it is too close to my heart to trash in the winter. What about buying a Healey, driving it for the winter and selling in the spring. You will make money… » 12/09/14 3:56pm 12/09/14 3:56pm

I have to give the best story I have of my late mother. See growing up she was always in some sort of station wagon and in 1993 she saw the Jeep Grand Cherokee and feel in love...and bought one without my dad knowing. She loved that Jeep more then me! Carpool one day we are leaving the first pick up and a car pulls… » 10/24/14 8:16pm 10/24/14 8:16pm

Rolls Royce. Sure in 2004 they came out with the Phantom, but before that they were just a name and a badge that BMW bought. In the 90's the cars were a bit of a joke...today they are the pinnacle of luxury and build quality. They have also expanded their product line up to me more then just one car with a few… » 10/09/14 11:41am 10/09/14 11:41am

How to open the gas door on a borrowed car. I'm the token car guy of the family and my dad got a Cadillac CTS and I took it out needed gas. Pull into the station and look for the button to pop the door (his old Caddy had a button and my Jeep had a button) couldn't find it. Went to the gas door and tried to pry it… » 9/22/14 11:34am 9/22/14 11:34am

Replace flipping people off with giving them a thumbs up for being dumb. I was once stuck in traffic trying to make a left hand turn into a driveway and some lady in a X5 roars up and blocks my entrance. I let out "are you kidding me" and she keeps her eyes straight ahead avoiding contact. I roll down my window and … » 9/16/14 11:52am 9/16/14 11:52am

I will say the Mazda Protege to Mazda Protege5. The Protege was pretty boring all through the 90's, and truly most of their cars were pretty boring (I can't fit in a Miata thus I hate them) but then in 2002 when Mazda brought the Protege5 to North America the "zoom zoom" image came true. I downsized from a Jeep Grand… » 9/09/14 2:52pm 9/09/14 2:52pm

I remember once helping a friend buy a car on the weekend...the dealer was giving out free hot dogs and hamburgers. Since I was hungry I had a burger, and I ended up getting food poisoning...I still remember the feeling of going for a test drive in a 2006 Honda Civic and having that "I need to go to the bathroom… » 6/09/14 1:32pm 6/09/14 1:32pm

I fear two of these things crashing into eachother after 2am...and both people are blackout drunk because "hey driverless car means no DUI" Just imagine the carnage, the fights, the yelling and the inability to render first aid because there is not an attentive driver in the accident. » 5/28/14 1:16pm 5/28/14 1:16pm

The Endras BMW "Ultimate Blogger" campaign. They gave someone a 65k/yr job, a leased BMW and a condo...580k hits in round one and 30k applicants. Fast forward 3 years and the blog is nothing more then an average BMW dealers blog and none of my automotive friends have ever heard of it. » 5/14/14 12:27pm 5/14/14 12:27pm

It was Christmas morning and I was running late to see my daughter. Here in Toronto we had just emerged from the ice storm and I still didn't have power so I was crashing on my friends couch, and mega irritable as I hadn't slept well in 4 days. I am driving to the highway and everyone is moving at a snails pace so… » 4/10/14 1:38pm 4/10/14 1:38pm

Mercedes S class, the trunk can fit anything you want, the seats are comfortable enough to sleep in (and trust me, the car becomes a second home as getting a baby to sleep you quickly learn to take them for a drive), its quiet inside and the rear windows have curtains built in to keep the sun off your kids face. Also… » 4/04/14 12:49pm 4/04/14 12:49pm

For a sports car, the Audi TT. I was looking at every little sports car on the market a few years back and never thought of the TT...then I had to help my mechanic drop off a car one day and drove one, and shocked myself at how low I could get the seat. I am 6'4 » 3/27/14 2:05pm 3/27/14 2:05pm

The first CTS/CTS-V. My dad ordered a CTSV from the dealer in 05 (his 5th Caddy since 92) and he showed up to take delivery, got in the car and saw it was a manual and turned to the dealer and said "Cadillacs don't come in manual" and then re-did the order for a CTS with a sport package and an auto. When he told me… » 3/26/14 12:08pm 3/26/14 12:08pm
