Ahh, the venerable pickup truck. Reliable mule to the working man. Ideal platform for lifting, supercharging and bro-dozing in general. Scourge to the Brits. Scourge to The Continent, too, come to think of it. It’s all of these things and many, many more. But, ideal road trip companion? What about daily driver? Maybe not traditionally,…
QUEBEC CITY—This motorcycle is one of the biggest in the world. It’s also one of the most expensive. Nobody would be happy if I piled it off a cliff into the Atlantic Ocean. Good thing it’s got traction control then – and I hunched forward and twisted the grip a little further on the bar….
Some tips to prepare you, yours and your ride for that summer road trip.
Originally published on Autos.ca on May 4, 2015 (Road Trip: The Spring Thaw in My Father’s 1967 MGB) The road is perfection, a twisting ribbon that follows the path of the river, flowing along its bank with much the same jounce, wriggle, ripple, and run. Across the way, you can see the main road, the…

Some cars make you restless. Scratch that: the best cars give you itchy feet. Well, here’s one born under a wanderin’ star – the new Ford Mustang. 5.0L V8 and a stick-shift transmission; giddy-up! This ain’t the kind of machine that’s happy cooped up in the city, so we stirred up that big eight-cylinder heartbeat…
Originally published on Autos.ca on November 4, 2013 (Top Picks: Best Roads in Canada) Stelvio Pass, the derestricted Autobahn, the Nikkō Irohazaka, blah, blah, blah. What about roads Canadians can actually drive on in something other than a rented diesel hatchback? It’s not like we don’t have a lot of tarmac criss-crossing this big ol’…
Originally introduced in 2003 to a combination of admiration and accolades, the Nissan Murano was a real leap ahead in the midsize SUV segment. Comparables – at the time, boxy and truck-like – immediately seemed dated when parked next to the curvy, modern Murano, one of the first “crossovers” to hit the market. It came…
Strident opinions by Steven Bochenek Originally published on Autos.ca on June 19, 2013 (http://www.autos.ca/motoring-memories/opinion-top-ten-rock-n-roll-car-anthems/) Nothing says summer like clumsy rhymes about noisy rides led by a catchy earworm and backed by simple thudding chords. What are those timeless paeans to car lust that make you turn the volume up and thrust your foot down? These…
Spring is here, meaning we’re almost right in the thick of road trip season. To help get you in the spirit (or maybe caution you on what not to do…), we compiled a list of some of the best road trip movies. These films feature revolutionary movements, off-the-wall adventures, and at least one Bill Murray…
Last November, I drove with my family to collect a new puppy from an American breeder. She agreed to meet us halfway between our two homes in Louisiana and Toronto, but there was only one place this could be: his name is Elvis, so we had to meet in Elvis Presley’s hometown, Memphis, Tennessee. Elvis…
Since graduating university over 15 years ago, I’ve been back only a handful of times, but this fall an opportunity came up for a mini-reunion with some of my good friends, and the timing all worked out for us. So I needed a car. Well, after being limited to just a few minutes behind the…

The new 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat has been making serious noise in the horsepower wars, its 707 horsepower stomping on the Ford Shelby GT500 and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. However, the Challenger has long been the best of the muscle cars for a long road trip or a noisy cruise, especially with the SRT team’s hot-rod 6.4L Hemi V8.
