A vehicle is considered one of the biggest financial commitments you'll make in your lifetime. While there are only half as many cars in the world as there are bicycles (more than one billion bikes), your car is still a costly commodity. Not only are vehicles expensive to initially purchase but they have recurring expenses that will add up...
This story is brought to you in collaboration with Mitsubishi Motors USA... This summer, some Nashville flavor came to Illinois in a pretty unique way. No, I'm not talking about that "Nashville Hot" chicken (though that's picking up steam in the north as well), but my sister's country wedding. Though she grew up in Illinois as I did, Nashville has...
It wouldn't be out-of-place if one where to arrive at 68 E. Wacker Place in a DeLorean. In fact, if I had access to one, that's just how I would've liked to roll-up to the Hampton Inn Chicago - one of the Windy City's newest downtown hotels, and one that fits perfectly with the high-octane spirit of adventure that...

We know a thing or two about James Bond. Sure, my name sounds a bit like the famous spy of the Ian Fleming novels and twenty-plus films, but that's not it. I've just watched the movies a bit (though I still need to see SKYFALL), and I recently introduced my little ones to the vehicular side of Bond through...

Before his untimely passing in 2002, Joe Strummer of THE CLASH was a noted car enthusiast. On September 9, 1987, Strummer scored a 1963 Ford Thunderbird - an original California double black-plate Bullet body style T-bird - for just $4,200. While the car has surfaced since his death a time or two (records of a 2003 auction still float...
Hands-down one of my favorite vehicles to come from the Hot Wheels STAR WARS Character Cars Collection is the Boba Fett edition - a "rat rod" that legitimately looks like it could be a real car, the kind pieced together and driven to extremes by a ruthless bounty hunter. As one of the most popular characters from the STAR...
