Car Body Styles

cars

When shopping for cars nowadays, it seems like you have a kajillion options. There are different trims, add-ons, colours and body styles available so there is so much customization available that everyone in your family could have a different vehicle. But the biggest thing that most people talk about with different cars is the body style. There are so many body styles out there now that it can be hard to distinguish between them just based on the name (Except for the hatchback...that one is easy to figure out.)

Marketing's First Cars

2018 Honda Civic Sedan LX

About a month ago, I gave the marketing team of Weins Canada a job. Think of a dream car. Doesn't matter how expensive it was, how rare it was or how absurd it was, tell me about your dream car. They delivered in spades, talking about everything from plausible (Buick Grand National) to completely out there (Lykan Hypersport). Sufficed to say, it was a fun article to write.

For this follow-up, I was a bit less fun.

Driving On The Highway

Highway Driving

Spring is weird in Canada, especially down here in the GTA. It basically doesn't exist. I consider spring in the GTA just a very slow transition from winter into summer (How can we have an ice storm one weekend and then have it 15 degrees the next weekend? It makes no sense!).

Sharing The Road With Cyclists

Bikers on the road

Ahhh, spring. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and the bikers are back on the road.

Now I know what you're thinking, I heard the groan from here. But bikers have as much right to be on the road as drivers do.

A helmet (for those that even wear them) will not protect a biker from getting t-boned by an SUV.

While warmer weather doesn't have as many dangers as cold weather does, warm weather should still change some of your driving habits. Here are some things that you should think about as the temperature rises (Yes, I promise the temperature will rise).

Car Window Tinting

Car Window Tinting

Window tinting is one of the most popular vehicle modifications out there today due to the ease of access and legalities of tinting. There are also some who would say that tinting your vehicle makes it much sexier.
