At Metropolitan Rustproofing, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound, and probably hundreds of dollars worth of cure. According to the automotive aestheticians, rust begins creeping into metalwork as an invisible, microscopic menace. The pernicious oxidation has no end of options. Vehicles have at least 1500 bends, crevices, and hollow spaces where air and moisture can seep in and begin to corrode interiors and exteriors.

Happily, Metropolitan Rustproofing has cars literally covered. Its six-step process shields everything from the undercarriage to the trunk, hood, and door hinges. The treatment prevents rust with the help of one of two oil treatments, including a biodegradable vegetable-based version. Like the Tin Man’s prescription medications, the solutions keep rust at bay and prevent existing rust outbreaks from spreading. The shop guarantees its services for life so long as vehicles are treated annually.

For motor enthusiasts, few sounds rival the sheer exuberance of an Italian super car spooling up its engine as it careens down the straightaway. At G1Tour, guests can achieve this thrill by slipping into the cockpit of their choice of three iconic super cars. Two Ferraris—a 360 Modena and an F430—twist their tires with 400 and 490 horsepower respectively, with the potential to reach the exact top speed of a cheetah who is driving a Ferrari. If that's not enough muscle, drivers can watch the blood drain from their knuckles as they attempt to contain the furious 552-horsepower Lamborghini Gallardo, who's high-rev plant propels passengers from 0 to 100 km/h in less than four seconds.

Cars can swirl around the 1.4-kilometre Sanair's wide tracks and soft turns or race headlong down the ultra-long straightaways of the 2-kilometre Sainte-Croix. Drivers who take on Mont-Tremblant negotiate hairpin turns and corkscrews as they work the pedals around the course's 4.2-kilometre track.
