As some of you might know, I recently visited Pixar Animation Studios for an early look at Disney•Pixar's Cars 3, after which I got to hit the track at Sonoma Raceway. As the June 16 release of the latest Cars film fast-approaches, back here in Illinois, families will be able to "meet" life-size, character look-alikes of five-time Piston-Cup champion...
In my adventures over the years, I've had the opportunity to drive a lot of different vehicles. What I've come to realize is that I'm definitely a "car guy" - meaning that I have little interest in motorcycles, and a limited knowledge of trucks. That doesn't mean that I haven't driven them, as I've been behind the wheel of...
This edition of Rock Father Rides is brought to you by Collective Bias and #Pennzoil... When you're a daily driver like me, chances are you're not giving a ton of thought to the motor oil in your engine. After all, as parents, the bulk of our driving is spent running kids to-and-from school and activities. Thing is, that stop-and-go can...
We don't have HESS EXPRESS stores here in the Midwest, but my friends on the East Coast do, and today comes some pre-Holiday news regarding an annual tradition for those with a Hess nearby: The Hess Toy Truck. For nearly 50 years, families have been picking up and collecting the Hess Toy Trucks, which were introduced by Leon Hess...
I've been out in Los Angeles for the past few days, working with The Walt Disney Company on a few things, but most importantly to attend the World Premiere of Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War (film reviewed here). Today, however, I had an unexpected detour - a brief meeting with the folks at Disney Consumer Products & Interactive, specifically...
While we're still not among their ranks as an owner, there is no other automotive brand on the road that my wife and I tend to like across-the-board more than Kia. There's certainly some specific models that I love from other makers, but when we're talking about consistency from top to bottom, over the past few years, Kia has...
Happy birthday, cars: many of the cars you see on the road have some of the longest lifespans ever. The average age of vehicles across different types of models and brands have significantly risen, but who's buying what? In the 1980s, a car reportedly lasted an average of around eight years before it was sent to the scrap heap. With...
The love of cars runs deep here at Rock Father HQ, and the summer months bring with them a lot of opportunities to enjoy some automotive fun as a family. One of the regular activities that the girls and I often enjoy is the simple act of getting our rides cleaned-up, shined-up, and ready to rock the road some...
This Rock Father™ Rides feature is brought to you by The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. Last week, we finally saw the first substantial snowfall of the season here in northern Illinois. The two things to note are 1) that it arrived about a month later than it used to, and 2) that it's already melted. Overall, there was around...
We have a sizable fleet of radio-controlled vehicles here at Rock Father HQ, and over the past few weeks it's become quite apparent that I just might have a new favorite. My love of Batman (yes, I do have a full bat-suit in my closet) and the Batmobile in general (I have many Hot Wheels versions) is fairly well-known,...
