About once a month someone says to me, "Now that I have kids, I think I need a minivan, but I really don't want a minivan. What should I buy?" Early in my career my answer was, "Well, you should probably buy a minivan." Most folks don't like this answer, but more often than not it's true.

On this Father's Day Weekend, we'd like to celebrate the things fathers should teach their kids about cars — even the stuff they don't want to know. Thanks, Dad, and yes, we did flush the coolant.
Father's Day is this Sunday. In honor of dads everywhere, we'd like to take a moment and consider where we'd be, car-wise, without our patresfamilias. This one's for you, pop.
Sometimes, our love for our dad's cars goes a little too far, and we end up harming them. Bill Cosby shares the hilarious story of what happened when he didn't treat his father's ride properly.
Father's Day is Sunday, but before you dash to Sears for a lame tie, consider the cars your dad drove and the impact they had on your development. What did your dad drive, and how did it change your life?
