I don’t eat fish. I mention this because I recently snapped a picture of Consumer Guide’s test Audi SQ5 next to a fish shop. But Don’s Dock, a kitschy seafood restaurant in Des Plaines, Illinois, exudes an irresistible old-school charm that invites photography, and paying customers.

This wasn’t your ordinary press preview.
First, the global launch of Land Rover’s new entry-level vehicle took place in Iceland… in January. And as one might expect of a country bordering the Arctic Circle in the middle of winter, it wasn’t exactly balmy there.

I learned to drive in a 1977 AMC Hornet. It was a very basic car, and one of the few options it had was an automatic transmission. Like almost every automatic at the time it was a three-speed unit, basically American Motors’ version of Chrysler’s highly respected TorqueFlite automatic. That was back in the mid Eighties.
