  • Oops, sorry, wrong car! When I got into the passenger seat of our rental car, the smell of onions was overpowering. This did not compute. How did our vehicle get so stinky? While this question was whirling in my head, I heard my husband, from the driver’s seat, ask: Who put this cheese in here? […]<img alt=" title="Better to look before jumping in" />

    Better to look before jumping in

    Oops, sorry, wrong car! When I got into the passenger seat of our rental car, the smell of onions was overpowering. This did not compute. How did our vehicle get so stinky?

  • Hitting the road on a camping trip has always been high on my list of priorities. Growing up, my family spent plenty of vacation time holing up in a tent swatting mosquitoes, chasing Daddy Long-Legs spiders and wringing out wet sleeping bags. Back then I’d see folks pulling travel trailers, tent trailers and propelling the […]<img alt=" title="Try a ride on the wild side" />

    The mighty Atom changed the course of the company history of legendary British automaker Aston Martin. Designed by Claude Hill, work to build the stunning vehicle began in the summer of 1939. The Atom project would be Aston Martin’s first attempt at a four-door sedan, moving away from the traditional body-building technique of using a […]

  • I’m sure you’ve heard some older dude, or dudette, one time or another, take a deep breath, sigh, and say, “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” Yep. I’ve heard it countless times too. What’s worse? I’m saying it myself. But I can hold my head high when I mutter that cliché […]<img alt=" title="Big Rigs: Time to make room for the lady drivers" />

    Big Rigs: Time to make room for the lady drivers

    I’m sure you’ve heard some older dude, or dudette, one time or another, take a deep breath, sigh, and say, “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” Yep.

  •   I am guessing it would take a brave person to drive one today with all the large trucks and SUVs on the road. They’re rare to see at car shows these days but they were very plentiful just a few years ago. The flip side of the mass-produced Model T was the 1968 Shelby […]<img alt=" title="Airport auto show anything but plain" />

  • BBC’s Top Gear not Lisa’s top rated

    The subject matter of this weekly column should always pertain to vehicles or driving. I love both. I like to read about cars, including technical reviews, and enjoy watching television shows about them. I don’t mind all that technical information, but sometimes the words on the page or the information dished out by a television […]

  • Garry serves up a plate of street beefs

    I like cars, trucks, trains and airplanes. Boats, well, not so much. That might have something to do with a short-lived stint on HMCS MacKenzie when I was posted to the now-retired destroyer in 1974. Road vehicles are my favourite mode of transportation, though. Just get in one and drive and what unfolds down that […]
