Because the love of cars shouldn’t be limited just to us two-legged folk Being a gearhead isn’t something you can limit to just men or women, kids or adults, or even human beings.

For our canine counterparts they’re a means of getting to the park for a walk, or going out on some adventure on the weekends. So in…

Car brands are famous the world over. People everywhere can identify an Aston Martin or a Lamborghini. Most people even have an idea what infamous cars such as the Lada and Peugeot look like.

Unlike fashion designers who enjoy fame and fortune, most car designers toil in obscurity, collecting a decent but unspectacular paycheck from the automaker where…

The average price of a car in North America is $30,000. That’s a big chunk of change for a car, and many people spend considerably more on their ride. However, there are plenty of very good cars that can be purchased for well under $30,000. And we’re talking about new cars for less than $30,000. Many of these more affordable automobiles offer style, comfort and power. Just because you don’t break the bank on your…

We’re talking stock horsepower here, not cars that can win street races with many after-market modifications, or out-of-this-world rocket…

We’re only human, as the saying goes, and people are bound to make mistakes when driving. A staggering 99% of all accidents on roads and highways are caused by human error. Yet most of us continue to make the same mistakes over-and-over again when driving, oblivious to the fact that we’ve erred at all. Whether it is out of habit, lack of awareness, or indifference to the other vehicles around us, people tend to repeatedly make…

Electric cars are the hottest thing in the car industry, and are consuming the plans, resources, and time of just about every automotive manufacturer in the world. So why haven’t they truly taken off yet? The technology exists. They’re good for the environment. And some of the newest models actually look pretty cool. But consumers, so far, have been lukewarm on electric vehicles. In 2015, sales of electric cars accounted for only three per cent of all…

From the moment one can drive, and often long before that, it’s the American Dream for pretty much every guy. It’s the thing that has inspired dudes for generations to save the nickels, quarters, and Hamiltons they collected from newspaper routes, convenience store shifts, and summer camp gigs. It’s the be-all and end-all of status for any American male between the ages of 16-50. I’m talking, of course, about owning a sports car. Yup, that…
