10 Top 10 Car Lists From Around The Internet

There's something magical about a Top 10.  It let's us chose a number of favourites (that number being 10) rather than settle on just one.  Car news outlets seem to just love a good Top 10 list, especially at the end of the year!  That's why this post is dedicated to Top Ten lists.  In fact, this could be Sean's Top 10 Top 10 Lists on The Auto Industry in 2013!

A huge thank you to all my readers! And the story of an unloved Caddy.

Hey everyone!  Just want to thank everyone for checking out my last post.  It was my first to get over thirty readers... and then it was the first to get over forty!  I’m really happy to see that more and more people are checking out the blog.  Hopefully we can get more conversations going too!  So in that spirit, if you have any comments on what’s been posted, feel free to share them in the comment section at the bottom of each post. 

So let’s jump onto the latest and the greatest (or, rather, old and not so great).  A couple days ago I saw an increasingly rare sight – the Cadillac Catera!  I am inexplicably fond of these cars.  I would probably never buy one knowing what I know now, but about half a decade ago or so I coveted them with an unhealthy zeal.

A New Post... Finally! Let's get caught up on some news...

Ok, so I’ve had a bit of a busy past week, so I haven’t been able to keep up with the blog as much as I would have liked.  What’s worse is there have been so many cool things happening in the car world.  So this post will be a bit of a chance to catch up with some of the car news we’ve missed over the last week.  As always, click on the links!

Closing Holden, Self-Driving Cars and an Awesome Dumb Sounding Subaru

Well, now that I’ve got the latest flair up of Mustang fever out of my system let’s get back to a broader view of the automotive landscape.  Here are some of the latest items that have caught my interest over the past couple days.  As per usual, feel free to click on the links for more info and context.

The Official 2015 Mustang Debut = Early Christmas for me!

It's finally here!  I was so excited this morning that I leaped from my bed and rushed to the computer to see the official pics and info released from Ford.  Well, in all truth I'm not much of a morning person.  But as soon as I got my bearings and ate breakfast (and my wife left for work) I got the computer out.

All Hyped Up for the NEW 2015 MUSTANG!!!!

If you’re like me and you like Mustangs, then you’re probably gearing up for the big reveal of the all new 2015 Ford Mustang on December 5th.  This new generation of the original pony car is setting to shake things up with a turbo option and, a first for the ‘stang, an independent rear suspension.

Spotted! The rare and elusive Subaru SVX!

Rare bird sighting alert!  I saw my first Subaru SVX in the wild a couple of days ago.  I noticed it as I was driving back to work from some lunch break Christmas shopping.  I parked my car and ran back to my office to let my boss know I may be late for our impending meeting.  When she asked why, all I said was that I had to take a picture of a car.  She laughed a little and nodded her reluctant approval.  With that I was out the door.

Another trip the auctions! What will we not bid on this time?!

When I grew up I was a picky child when it came to trying new things at the dinner table.  Every so often though, I would try something and get a taste for it.  I’m happy to report I have once more indulged in visiting a car auction (again with a $100 spend limit set by spousal imposition).  I went with, Dan, the same car buddy I went with last time.  Only now he was seriously looking to bid on a car.
