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.

I take back every bad word I ever said about LEGO. For every time I stepped on a tiny plastic brick and cursed the Danish brand loud and proud into the night, I am sorry. So sorry. LEGO, you are redeemed, for now I can own a supercar in the most nerdtastic way possible.

The Porsche Performance Tour is a fantasy camp for grown-ups involving some of the best cars on some of the best driving roads and race tracks in Canada. All guided by Porsche racing drivers, both past and present. That’s all good, but of course, it’d be nada without the cars.

Top 10 Jeremy Clarkson Moments
http://autotrdr.ca/GiHfN7

Love him or hate him, there’s little question that if you’re a car person – or perhaps, even if you’re not – you have an opinion on disgraced (is that the right word? Guess it depends on your perspective) Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson. And, chances are, whether your opinion is a negative or positive one, I’ll bet you’d have a hard time arguing against the claims that he is/was, above all, entertaining.

As much as we love co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond – who, along with JC, will star in their last Top Gear video later this week, Clarkson was Top Gear. So, as we prepare for the last show before he rides into the sunset, here’s a list of our favorite JC moments.

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.”

Why didn’t this idea take off? In the early 1980s, Dodge came up with a relatively simple innovation – take the popular Omni compact car, saw the back half off, and put a pickup bed there instead. Don’t do things by half-measures either, get a proper frame and leaf-springs to haul the weight.
