The Best of Barrett-Jackson 2013

This week is the world-famous Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction is the premier classic and rare car auction in the world. It’s the sort of thing that rich people go to for buying new status symbols and where real men go to drool over what basically is automotive erotica. It’s basically a week-long celebration of the car where gearheads are king. So to celebrate the year’s biggest car show where the cars and not the manufacturers are the stars, here are ten of my favourite cars from this week’s auction. Continue reading

Since it’s the start of 2013 and I’m done with my own 2012 lists, I thought it would be fun to look ahead to 2013.

This week is the world-famous Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Orange County, California. The Barrett-Jackson Orange County auction is the most recent addition to the Barrett-Jackson auction circuit. While there aren’t as many cars (or as high prices) as the massive Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, that doesn’t mean it isn’t a proper man’s weekend where guys go to drool over what basically is automotive erotica. So to celebrate California’s biggest collector car show where the cars and not the manufacturers are the stars, here are ten of my favourite cars available in this weekend’s auction.

The Twenty Greatest Driving Songs

This weekend marks the unofficial beginning of summer in Canada. That means the snow has finally melted which will clean up the roads for guys like us to burn some rubber.

However, only certain tunes have you driving full throttle.

So today, we’ve taken up the seemingly thankless task of selecting the twenty best songs that  make you put your foot to the floor and not look back. Continue reading

In honour of yesterday’s abomination of a performance of the Star Spangled Banner by Steven Tyler, here’s our list of the ten worst national anthem performances at a sporting event of all-time. Continue reading
