In a little over a week we’ll be getting ready to celebrate halloween, the time of year when kids (and adults when the kids aren’t home) put on costumes and binge eat tiny chocolate bars. While I haven’t seen much of this celebration style here, this is a trend that is popping up in the states. If you’re looking for a different way to celebrate halloween this year, why not have a trunk or treat?

Before we get started it’s important to keep in mind this is an opinion. Taking a taxi is a great way to get around the City of Ottawa. Right now though, the city is caught in a sort of a transition between proven ways and new ideas.

Getting around Ottawa can be a bit of a hassle, and for those that don’t own a vehicle it can be even more time consuming. I have lost count of the times a bus has either been late, early, or just plain absent. Getting a cab from the city’s west end to the market on a friday night can quickly get expensive, and with many people opting to use the service the wait times can grow long.

The cars themselves are quite interesting, with models ranging from moonshiners to Bond cars, monster trucks to street racers, and everything in between.  If you’re a fan of classic or custom cars, then the Ottawa Autorama can’t be missed!

The Classic Cars

One of the main draws at the Ottawa Autorama is the incredible lineup of classic cars.

Modern Chargers and Camaros try, but they just can’t beat a classic.
