The unfiltered sound. The re-contextualized speed. The seagulls.
Depending on where you live, there is so much freaking snow on the ground now, and there's more on the way, and I guess you just have to live in this icy hellscape forever and ever. If you're in a big city, they're plowing it as best they can. But where do they actually put it?
This year's Detroit Auto Show was all about Acuras instead of the core brand, but the Japanese clearly didn't want to leave North America without giving us a new Honda. They choose the Montreal International Auto Show for their premier, so go ahead and blame Canada for getting the first peek at a future we hope Honda…
If you've never heard of the Rental Car Rally from New York to Montreal before, let these hip Quebecoise ladies explain it to you in their native tongue. You have a sudden urge to go, now.
Listen carefully. That sound you're hearing now? That's the sound of car enthusiasts all over the world screaming in agony after this Porsche 959 crashed in Montreal last night.
"You fucking idiot! What the fuck do you think you're doing? Do you like stealing other people's drinks, or what?" Here I am, standing on the second floor of a very loud party, getting flecks of spit on my face, and generally enjoying the unbelievably rich world of Formula One.
When confronted with a twelve-wheeled dump truck coming the other way on a typically narrow side street in Montreal, this BMW driver expects the dump truck to back up and let her through. Not gonna happen, lady.
Five Bugatti Veyron owners were seen puttin' on the Ritz in Montreal this weekend, forming the perfect public road-bourne foil to the F1 madness that descended upon the French Canadian city. We can only imagine what it sounded like to hear all five of them fire up at the same time.
This road outside of Montreal now sits at the bottom of a giant sinkhole along with part of a house. The man who drove his truck into the hole is alive, but the family that lived in the house is missing.
Introduced in the 1970s with a uniquely recognizable shape, the Montreal foreshadowed the automotive excess to come. Now there's a book about it.
We've never actually seen The Marseille Contract, a 1974 thriller starring Michael Caine. Nevertheless, we have now seen this playful car chase starring Caine, Maureen Kerwin, an Alfa Romeo Montreal, a 911 and a DS. And what more could one want from a Thursday afternoon?
As '70's Montreal was the only place ever where as a horrified youngster we saw grown men wearing fur coats, it seems only fitting that Alfa Romeo chose the city as the moniker for its V-8 powered coupe of the same name. The combination of 200 V-8 horsepower and quad-cam Italian styling defines the seventies in…
Those nutty French Canadians are at it again. Montreal is apparently one of the only places in North American where you can't buy a new car on the weekend. The regulation is part of an agreement between all new car dealers aimed at reducing work hours for dealership employees. Claude Leclair, owner of Pie IX Dodge…
The Champ Car race in
Quebec hasn't been doing so well, with attendance at the previous Montreal race dropping to around 110,000, nearly a third of a similar F1 weekend. So what are those nutty Canadians doing to make the series more interesting? Adding Cirque Du Soleil (and moving it to the resort…
If you needed another reason to go to the Montreal auto show next month, other than for the proximity to a snack pack of Tim Horton's Sour Cream Glazed "Timbits" donut holes, try the 2007 Plethore by HHT Locus Technologies.
