Auto Show season is upon us, with the big ones about to start rolling out here in North America this month, with #NAIAS in Detroit, followed by the Chicago International Auto Show in February. Up North, the Canadian International AutoShow rolls into the downtown Metro Toronto Convention Centre from Feb. 16-25, and this year Mattel is bringing Hot Wheels into the action! The number one selling toy in the world races into Canada with an explosion of activities to commemorate its 50th anniversary. This includes appearances by some of the iconic full-sized rides from the Hot Wheels garage, including the famed Star Wars Darth Vader character car and the Special Edition 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS!

It's a new year, and as I write this right now, we're having extreme sub-zero temperatures here in northern Illinois. Pair that with the residue from the snow and salt, and our rides aren't looking too hot, and there's no good way to clean them until it warms up. Dreaming of warmer weather, I'm always thinking about shining up the cars, and there's always that goal of making them as "new car" fresh as possible. With that in mind, the folks at Meguiar's (check out their full product line on Amazon) have sent over a list of six helpful tips that can aid in keeping your new car looking and feeling like new longer, but are also great for freshening up an older ride as well. I've got the full rundown below, along with a quick look at the team that makes Meguiar's...

As we reach the end of one year and turn the calendar to another, we make our way through the crowded holiday season and into the open waters of what lies ahead. It's a time to show appreciation for those who do for us, but also a great reminder that it's worth showing appreciation throughout the year - not just during the festive season. The Zicam Card Creator at Card Isle is an easy way to send a digital greeting card to provide a message of thanks, some get well wishes or to simply let someone know that you're thinking of them. Here's one that I made for Santa. Yes, the Mighty Santa Claus!

It's been more than eight years since my wife and I first became parents, and despite writing about gaming often, it wasn't until this year that I finally got to start spending some real time blowing up some pixels again. I upgraded from the Xbox 360 (which I still have) to the Xbox One S, promptly jumping right back into the kind of military-themed action I used to enjoy. After all, when it comes to fall, that means Call of Duty Season is open, but when I bought my system it came with Battlefield 1. Thing is, it's difficult to blow stuff up good when there's two little girls and a wife sleeping upstairs, and that means headphones. For the task at hand, I've got the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Surround Sound Gaming Headset.

When I was a kid, I was aware of NHRA Top Fuel dragsters and funny cars. At the time, I had some assorted Hot Wheels versions of them and they were played with quite often. While I had the general idea of what they did (go fast in a straight line!), I had no idea what kind of mechanics were involved, and even as an adult that got into racing, that world sort of escaped me until recently. I've written about the transition from the track to the street before, but I'd not thought much about the drag racing side of things until I met up with the crew from Pennzoil Performance to attend the recent NHRA Toyota Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. There are things that can apply to you, and I'm sharing that knowledge here, along with some facts about NHRA Top Fuel racing!
