* We’ve seen these firepits made to resemble VW Microbuses all over social media lately, so it’s pretty cool to see Make magazine showing how to make one out of a propane tank.

* Canada’s auto industry turns 150 this year, so Jil McIntosh headed over to the Canadian Automotive Museum to see just what made Canadian cars unique.

* Mac at Mac’s Motor City Garage took in this year’s Eyes on Design car show and put together this report.

* Goodwood’s livestreaming the Festival of Speed. What, you had other plans this weekend?
