Brawn Meets Brain: 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE

The Camaro SS 1LE brings the meat while still giving you the vegetables you need.

What happens when you continue to improve a product? Apple’s iPhone gets more speed and more features, building design becomes more environmental friendly, trees grow bigger. What happens, then, when you take a very good car and make it better? Perhaps, the Camaro SS 1LE?

Gallery – GM 17th Annual Show & Shine

You like pictures? You like cars? You like pictures of cars? This gallery is for you!

On August 7, GM hosted their 17th annual Show & Shine event at their St. Catharines plant, in Ontario. It was the occasion for GM owners to put their more and less recent piece of automotive history on display. From very humble beginnings, with only seven cars registered, the event gained momentum and this year’s edition received no less than 380 subscriptions. The open air exhibit was also the occasion for the manufacturer to premier the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro on Canadian soil. Here’s a peek at the historical marvels seen at the show.

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Finally Unveiled in Canada

2016 Chevrolet Camaro

After a much awaited unveiling in Detroit back in May, Canada finally got its local unveiling of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro. The event took place at GM’s plant in St. Catharines, in Ontario, where the Camaro’s small block V8 engine will be produced. The car was presented during the annual Show & Shine and received the attention worthy of its legacy.

Close to 400 vehicles from all walks of life showed up at GM’s 17th Show & Shine annual event. It was quite a clash of the generations, where fifth generation Camaros were sharing the spotlight with late 60s Corvettes and Scooby Doo’s Mystery Machine. And at the center of all this time-travelling marvel was the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, the sixth generation of one of America’s most notorious muscle cars.

New 2016 Chevrolet Cruze; How Much Do You Miss the Older Gen?

GM has unveiled the next-generation Chevrolet Cruze. Bigger, better, stronger, faster. Oh! Did I mention it looks like a Civic?

Coming from a long history of more or less successful compact sedans (remember the Cavalier and the Cobalt?) that was either cherished or cursed by former owners, the Cruze picked up the torch in 2008. The first generation has even done pretty well for itself. Way to go Cruze! And it’s in the hopes of pursuing this new-found legacy that GM has unveiled its newly redesigned, second generation Chevrolet Cruze. There’s good news and there’s bad news.

Little Yellow Camaro: Baby You’re Just Not Fast

Every fibre of my being wants to use “You could’ve had a V-8”, but how cliché is that?

Last Saturday was a rainy cold day. It was coming down hard. The windows of the bus I was on were completely fogged over. I couldn’t see anywhere. When it was time to get out I pulled my hood up, laced it tight, jumped out and ran to the car I wanted. I didn’t know what car, just that I was looking for an orange sticker on the windshield.  Oh, hey, it’s a Camaro. Neat! 

No Power Mirrors? No Thanks

You can have your base model stripper penalty-box. I’ll take the King Hornali.

I hear a lot of people talk about how they wish trucks were still trucks. You know. Vinyl seat, regular cab, manual transfer case, heavy blanket and an old dog on the seat. Trucks.

Better be ready for the new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro

The countdown has begun for the launch of the sixth-gen Camaro. Tik tok tik tok…

Excited about the pending unveiling of the new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro yet? Well, you have every reason to be. Not only has the muscle been redesigned from bumper to bumper, it will also be more aerodynamic. Fly like a butterfly, sting like a Bumblebee.

Old Simpsons jokes aside, there’s fun to be had in almost anything. In the right situation.

The media says full-size pickups drive like cars now, and they’re lying. Or, they only drive cars from the ’70s. Either way, trucks still drive like trucks. Bouncy, occasionally jarring, stiff.  But that’s ok, as long as they can still work.
