Great Cars of Toronto

A business trip took me to Toronto last week,...

...giving me an opportunity to sample the automotive world on the other side of the world's longest international border.

Continuing our Mustang theme from earlier in the week, from the ever-interesting Vintage Everyday comes this week's photograph:

Mustang in Traffic Omaha 1973

Titled "Mustang in traffic, Omaha, 1973".

I for one really liked the design of the turning 2nd Gen Monte Carlo. Totally one of my Ultimate Garage cars.

Great Commercials - Sácame a Pasear (Take Me Out For A Spin)

It doesn’t matter how you view Toyota cars –or cars in general- whether they’re appliances or machines that never go out of style; if you use ‘em and don’t maintain ‘em, they’ll be scrap sooner than later, regardless of all their praise, earned or otherwise. While this commercial recommends that you take your car to a certified Toyota Service Center, I want to personally include reputable independent shops as well, provided that you don’t know what you’re doing or don't have the tools for the job when it comes to maintenance (there’s no shame in asking for help or letting the professionals do it).

Carspotters' Challenge #170: Ashland, Wisconsin - July, 1973

Ashland, Wisconsin - July 1973 tumblr_m0yv6zZ4cK1qiwn71o1_1280

Has The Poseidon Adventure been in theaters since its release date of December 1972? Well, it was really successful...

Anyways, no wonder there isn't that many cars parked around, everyone must've seen it already.

Carspotters’ Challenge #169: Sunset Beach, California, 1969

With photos like this one, it's hard to argue that 1969 was a very good year.

The Cars of "Chuck"

Httpwww.imfdb.org 450px-ChuckS4_96Chuck is a North-American TV show about Chuck Bartowski, a young man whose mediocre life changed when he opened an e-mail containing encrypted content composed of a huge number of highly classified information called the Intersect. Once read and in the subconscious of brain, the person with this information becomes a supercomputer of sorts, able to do things like ID an international criminal, or identify a weapon or document of upmost importance, though involuntarily. And that’s just the first season! Due to his skills behind a computer and overall unorthodox ways in handling situations in relation to governmental bureaus, Chuck reluctantly becomes part of a secret anti-terrorist team effort until a way is found to remove the Intersect from his head. His cover? His mundane life. In the meantime, serious questions appear: What makes a spy: the equipment or the individual? Can one be a spy and have a normal, happy life? Can one be a spy without sacrificing one’s values and integrity?

Carspotters’ Challenge #168: Rising Sun, Lowered Ride Height

It's always a treat to see the best of other countries' car culture. Regardless of how well-documented they seem to be, Japan never ceases to bore me with theirs.

Carspotters Challenge #167: Muscle Cars

Our picture may be small this time, but these machines are pure muscle. There's plenty of classic iron to view; I see cars from all of the Big Three Four.

(Maybe even the Big Five if you count the bike.)
