In Ford Mustang Heaven At The Woodward Dream Cruise

The classic car, Ford Mustang, is iconic for different reasons. You can dress it up, modify it or keep it standard and it is one of those cars that brings a timeless style to the streets. Whether you have seen movies like, Gone in 60 Seconds, I am Legend, or of course the 1968 GT390 Fastback screaming through San Francisco in Bullitt, there were so many iconic movies where you pictured yourself as the wheelman. We recently attended the Woodward Dream Cruise with Ford Canada to see just how passionate the Ford Mustang community was. And we were not disappointed. The[Read More]

One Of The World’s First Porsche Roadsters Comes To Toronto

The Porsche 356 No.1 Roadster is a large, beautifully crafted piece of automotive history. The car was first brought and introduced in Geneva and recently celebrated its 70th anniversary and it’s looking great for its age. I would love to see more cars to pay homage to their ancestors as automotive moves to better materials, technology and smaller more powerful, electric motors. Wouldn’t you love an electric version of this in 2019? Last week, I was invited by Porsche to see the historical car in person. It was a hot and sunny day in Toronto last week as the Porsche 356[Read More]

The Jaguar I-Pace Delivers

By: Loukia Zigoumis Jaguar has been one of the finest luxury car companies since 1935, creating visually stunning, ground-breaking vehicles; now Jaguar is also the first luxury car brand to come out with an entirely electric vehicle—the I-PACE—and it’s designed to impress. While Tesla got us all thinking about electric vehicles, it’s the Jaguar I-PACE that’s going to make everyone want to own one. Jaguar’s tagline—Born To Perform—holds true for their brand-new electric vehicle, the I-PACE, as I quickly found out when I put it to the test during the global media launch in Portugal. The Jaguar I-PACE has been[Read More]

Porsche Celebrates 70 Years of Sports Car Dedication

It’s really tough to think about sports cars without thinking of Porsche. They have been a staple for desirable sports cars for decades. Whether found featured in movies, magazines, racing series or driving through your neighbourhood, Porsche’s timeless, yet modern look has continued to morph and transform over years of driving, racing, engineering and design. Whichever era you know the most in Porsche sport cars, there is a Porsche for everyone to enjoy. I have driven a Porsche 911 around the racetrack at Area 27 in Oosyoos, British Columbia, and was just so impressed how a street car can turn[Read More]

Powerfully Coasting In A 2018 Lincoln Navigator Reserve

It’s a similar experience to heading out on a boat for the first time. First Impressions You sit down on comfortable leather seating, plenty of space to look around, open/close compartments, kick out your feet and feel the interior hold you in. After climbing in, you try to adjust to the new and larger size, the new feeling of driving through bigger space. The new feeling of cruising along the waves instead of feeling the hills and valleys of water in a smaller boat. But, when you are finally out on the water, and fully adjust to the length and[Read More]

When you look across the bridge on Dundas Street East in Toronto, going over the water, bike pathways, highway below, a massive building emerges on the other side with a list of recognizable and exotic car logos spread across like a billboard.

Just adding space, storage and the ability to transport larger numbers of people. That’s basic stuff. Any car company can do that.
