Ski Season is Here! Let's Hit the Slopes!

Ski Season is Here! Let's Hit the Slopes!

By Petrolicious Productions / 28 Nov 2014

Let’s hit the slopes! Right now, Arctic air is rushing down the Canadian Rockies towards the American Midwest and East. This is good news because if you have an alpine fixation like us, you probably can’t wait until the unofficial start of winter and ski season. However, depending on where you live, or where you’re willing to travel, November 27th, Thanksgiving day, marks ski season's opening.

Why Did You Buy a Classic Car?

I suspect that most people, like me, buy cars to enjoy them and don't really care about a particular car's history (unless it's truly special), but that begs the question–why buy a classic when new cars are pound-for-pound better in every quantifiable way?

As Thanksgiving, winter break, and the holidays approach many people will be forced to fly and we all know how cruel and uncomfortable flying is.

It was an Indian summer in Washington DC and over one hundred degrees Fahrenheit outside. I hit the Beltway, which was at a virtual stand-still and crawled along averaging about eight mph. My commute was about twenty miles. Then it got worse—the Pontiac’s engine block thermostat failed shut. What could I do?...

In a time when a physical product was the norm, album art was just that – art.

Browse through, take in the essence of the era, and allow your mind to travel back to a period when you went out and bought your first album, in an actual store.

Why not grab some friends (or not, if you’re brave), snuggle up, and enjoy a couple vintage horror flicks! Though some might prove to be more humorous than terrifying, you’ll still be getting a break from contemporary, often sub-par films. Alas, a classic horror movie might not make you jump like the new stuff, but you can count on them being creepy.

What is the Scariest Car You've Ever Driven?
