1980 Pontiac Firebird

Most pony car fans fall squarely into one of two camps: Chevrolet Camaro or Ford Mustang. Yes, there are plenty of Dodge Challenger and Plymouth Barracuda loyalists out there, and a few seriously devoted AMC Javelin guys, but the Camaro and Mustang take the biggest piece of the fan pie.

1971 GMC vehicles (Canada)

What is Ford SecuriCode?

The Ford SecuriCode system allows vehicle owners to access their cars and trucks utilizing a keypad and five-digit code. The older system keypad seen here is located above the door handle. Most of the current SecuriCode keypads are found on the driver’s side B-pillar.

Red Bull “Wings Team” Mini Cooper

If you’re my age, you may have a few fond memories of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile making its way to your hometown or a nearby burg, replete with a seemingly endless supply of Wienermobile plastic whistles—which in the Sixties and Seventies passed for quality tchotchkes. The big fiberglass sausages on wheels were generally found stationed in grocery-store parking lots, where Mayer staff passed out coupons and whistles to a receptive audience. It was a simpler time.
