Year End 2015

Approaching year end...with an eye on 2016 which will mark our 10th year of publishing Strada.

We could have the 10 of this or that, but its not our style, and if you are seeking anything in particular use the search feature and see what comes up.

The Colonel

Who is this guy? After almost 10 years some folks know who he is, other still know him has The Colonel. He remains the main guy at Strada. Yes...its a work of passion, which still burns bright.

The Business

What do we know about that auto business? Probably not enough, and perhaps too much. Is that vague enough for you. We just hope that if you are a regular reader, we have provoked your thought process on a few occasions, to make it worth your time.


We are not in the eyeball business...lets leave it at that.


We enjoy doing vehicle reviews, especially of vehicles that grasp our attention. Yes...they are all pretty darn good too.

Boutique Publication

We are a boutique publication, not for everyone, its appeals to folks that seek to be provoked, want a different perspective, an advantage.

Your Own Editor

Absolutely...there is a ton of stuff out there chasing eyeballs, and/or protecting interests, and/or promoting snake oil.


We are closet Cadillac fans, maiby not so much closet. Still waiting for Cadillac to emerge...we might just wait a long time


The Colonel has been driving a Benz for decades...lets leave it at that. Maiby not, V8, sedan, rear wheel drive.


"You have bowties flowing in your veins" referring to The Colonel.

Hot Rods

Totally cool, right stance, a bigger than smaller engine, enduring, lasting


A immense sense of freedom, a liberating, relaxing experience to go for a bike ride.

Heavy Duty Trucks

"Have you thanked a truck today?" Everything we consume was hauled by a truck at one point or another. Old school 2 cycle Detroit Diesels are very special. A Peterbilt with an aluminum hood/rivets remains cool

Pick Ups

In 2015 they are positively huge, and cool too.

Utility Vehicles

Its a station wagon from back in the day, in most cases it provides traction to 4 wheels, its the family kicker, its useful.


Its an hideous experience...while saving time. Everything is an option...


Another incresingly hideous experience...unreal, scary, frustrating especially in the GTA, or any major metro area.

Shoebox Chevy

Through the years you have heard talk about a "Shoebox Chevy" on a few occasions. Its this imaginary 2 door post 55 or 56 Chevy with 2016 performance. If you evr wondered what a shoebox Chevy would look like...take a look.


We are always thankful and appreciative for what we have, and wish the best to others.



2014 S Class

The new S Class...
