Attention Steve Lehto:  I have seen the thing you wrote about!!

I was at the Toronto Auto show with my brother, and we were talking about a Cadillac concept from the 50's or 60's. It had taillights that looked like turbines.

To interval, or not to interval, that is the question

Question: This weekend I am taking the Cavalier down to Toronto. There and back that is about 1000 kms round trip. I am about 300kms from my oil change interval. Do I drive it there and back, and then get my mechanic to change the oil, or do I risk it at a quick lube type place and stay under my interval. » 2/20/15 8:08am 2/20/15 8:08am

Let's play a game: Guess the Problem.

My Car (2003 Cavalier 2.2L ecotec 5 spd "bro truck edition") is in the shop. It refuses to idle properly, it surges when I start it, and then can't find a consistent idle constantly moving between 800k-1500k rpms. It then seems to either misfire, or stutter when accelerating. It sounds awesome, but it's very hard… » 2/10/15 7:34am 2/10/15 7:34am

Rallye Perce Neige Highlights

Very early saturday morning, me and my friend got up to head to Maniwaki Quebec, almost one hour and a half direct north of Ottawa. Going up Highway 105, a white golf appeared in my mirror. Turns out it was Whiskey Golf, who had also come up for the day. You can check his photo's out here. Zipppy was a little… » 2/09/15 11:55am 2/09/15 11:55am
