Toronto's MegaSpeed Was Reborn As Motorama Last Weekend (It Was Great)

There Have Been Neoclassic Cars Built Out Of Almost Everything

The hardest part of putting together a comprehensive list of neoclassic cars is deciding what technically constitutes a "neoclassic." Do replicas of '30s-era cars count? What about custom-built one-offs? What if it's more like a sporty MG-style roadster? Ughhh— » 3/15/15 5:16pm 3/15/15 5:16pm

How Well Do You Know Your Old Versions Of Modern Carmaker Logos?

You've probably seen them around on the web at some point, a Can-You-Guess-The-Car-Brand-From-The-Logo?-type quiz posted by a Facebook friend or something, and absolutely nailed the thing, save for maybe the one or two obscure and/or foreign automakers.

From what I understand, they actually share a co-founder. Magna was started in the '50s by two guys, and one left to start Multimatic (the original name of the company that would become Magna, by the way) in the '80s. The two firms "maintain a professional relationship" or something like that.

These Engines Are So Good They Replaced Their Cars' Model Names

Do you remember learning the word "synecdoche" in high school English class at all? It was one of those literary terms, referring to when, in writing, a part of something was used to stand in for the whole thing.

Toronto's Auto Show Has A Tucker, Delahaye And A Chrysler Turbine Car

One of the cool new things about the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto is that this year you can, without difficulty, actually buy the cars you see on the show floor. (Am I just ignorant or is that not a thing most shows do?)

Now not all of the cars, mind you—you're gonna have to wait on that… » 2/16/15 3:22pm 2/16/15 3:22pm

You Can Drive A Peel P50 At The Toronto Auto Show
