Hallowe’en is upon us, and this year we troll the fields and catacombs for the bones of the forgotten automobile – vehicles left exposed to the elements, humbled by humidity, ravaged by rust and buried under the brush. We hope you won’t think it ghoulish of us to say that decay can be a delightful…
When it comes to TV shows, a good car can become a character in its own right (if the Duke boys had a wood-panelled station wagon, would it still be the General Lee?). What’s more, just like in real life, a car lets you reach reasonably accurate conclusions about its owners – one look at…

The NHL regular season is upon us, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers have almost surely put themselves out of contention for the CFL playoffs (never mind that the Grey Cup final is in Winnipeg this year), and here in the Prairies we’re starting to see frost on our cars first thing in the morning.
