Bad news for those of us who thought the Pan Am Games hype might push people off the cluttered roadways.

With the Pan Am Games just days away and temporary HOV rules already in full effect, 60 percent of Toronto commuters say they won’t be changing their commuting habits.

When Dodge made headlines with the announcement of an upcoming trim over the SRT models, I never expected this.

First the Challenger, and the Charger received the Hellcat treatment, and when I saw the numbers, I knew I would have to get in one.

Well, now it’s here and I had the privilege of burning through enough fuel to last a month in most cars and somehow left enough tread to limp back to Dodge headquarters to return the keys.

At every turn I expected Satan to knock on the window and ask for his keys back, but instead it looks like it might fall to the next writer to give up his firstborn in payment to keep this thing…

Introduced in 1955 and produced until 1974, the VW Karmann Ghia Coupe is living proof that some designs are timeless. It was penned by Luigi Segre of the Italian design house Ghia, and built by German coachworks Karmann. Underneath is a Type 1 VW Beetle with a widened platform.

The Karmann Ghia Coupe was conceived as a halo car – its mission to add some zing to the VW Beetle line up. A convertible version came along in 1957.

Goodwood Festival of Speed
http://autotrdr.ca/vVUd7o

From one-off, carbon-fibre supercars to iron and steel leviathans more than a century old, the Goodwood Festival of Speed is an unparalleled celebration of motorsports, speed and cars.

Founded in 1993 by the Earl of March, the festival takes place on the 12,000-acre Goodwood Estate, surrounded by pastoral English countryside.

Although the event is centred around the Hill Climb, a 1.86-km dash that’s one of the most prestigious in motor sport, the main attraction for festival goers is the accessibility of the world’s rarest and most celebrated automobiles.

The Goodwood Festival is just too vast a spectacle to fully explore in just three days, so here are just a few highlights.

The anniversary and special edition car is a hallowed tradition in the automotive industry; and by “hallowed,” I mean “hollow.” Most of these things are stripes-n’-decals tacky add-on packages that try to charge more just because the years happen to line up. A special colour? A little commemorative badge? Who cares.

However, there are any number of special edition machines where the engineering department snuck a fast one past the marketing bean-counters. These cars are faster, unique, actually deserving of the special edition moniker. Here’s a look at a few of the best.

Test Ride: MV Agusta F3 800
http://autotrdr.ca/osrtew

The road rushes underneath my outstretched knee. Wrist cocked, head low, chest open and eyes up; I’m grinning underneath my helmet as I wind on throttle and push the bike away from me, standing it upright in readiness for the coming onslaught of acceleration.

Suddenly, a shop window.

I brake. Quickly, urgently, excessively. The back end is light and chirping but I wipe off speed in an instant. Just in time. But only just in time… to see my reflection.

“Daddy’s home.”

There’s a right and wrong way to do almost everything. Tying your shoes. Cooking a recipe. Asking that hot girl on a date. Get things wrong, and you could trip and bust your schnoz, wind up with crappy muffins, or get laughed all the way to permanent residence in Singleville. Population? You.

There’s a wrong way to tune up your ride, too. Whether it’s adding more power, looks, awesomeness, or appeal to the opposite sex, doing car modifications right involves being patient, doing your research, saving money towards quality parts and installation, and not rushing to half-ass some cut-price junk you found on eBay onto your machine.

Here are some Dos and Don’ts to bear in mind, and a little advice, if you’re planning to make some common upgrades to your ride.

2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat - Quick Spin
http://autotrdr.ca/oIyuod

When Dodge made headlines with the announcement of an upcoming trim over the SRT models, I never expected this. First the Challenger, and the Charger received the Hellcat treatment, and when I saw the numbers, I knew I would have to get in one. First we sent Brendan to check out the Challenger lineup, including the Hellcat, then Ben Hunting to get a first taste of the Charger. Well, now it’s here and I had the privilege of burning through enough fuel to last a month in most cars and somehow left enough tread to limp back to Dodge headquarters to return the keys. At every turn I expected Satan to knock on the window and ask for his keys back, but instead it looks like it might fall to the next writer to give up his firstborn in payment to keep this thing…

Welcome to Goof of the Month! Every month, we’re going to ask for stories from our network of mechanic pals which highlight the need to understand one’s vehicle, how to maintain it, and how it works. We read the submissions, check out the stories, and pick the winner, announcing the monthly Goof in our regular column about the most mechanically declined folks on the road today.

You want to go fast, blast wicked sounds from your tailpipes and turn heads while you roll down the road, but you’ve got a boat to tow, kids and dogs to take places, and stuff to haul around.

So that two-seat tarmac-missile is pretty much out of the question. Which means you need a super-ute.

Not just a regular sports ute. Those are for suckers. You want a super-ute: the kind of SUV that has a rocket thruster for engine, brake rotors the size of trash-can lids, and exhaust pipe diameter on par with your average watermelon. In a super-ute, you’ve got room for the fam, room for the pets, room for your stuff, and the capability to tow your boat or tackle moderate trails. There’s also the ear-splitting exhaust note, bonkers acceleration, and performance moves to embarrass many of those sports cars your single buddies own.

Here’s a closer look at a few of the market’s popular super-utes, and how they stack up as used buys. Note that as a bare minimum, shoppers considering any of the models below are advised to have a dealer do a full pre-purchase mechanical and electronics inspection on any potential candidate, and budget for a full fluid change and tune-up if the service history of the unit in question is unclear.

At $18,925 the MV Agusta is in the upper echelons of motorcycle pricing – even an 899 Panigale is a full $3,000 less – but the attention to detail, intricate design and glove-fit chassis are stunning.

Is it worth it? That depends who’s asking. But let me put it this way: The MV Agusta F3 800 is special in a way that’s not only tangible, it’s spiritual.
