McCahill frequently used extreme metaphors and similes in his prose. For example, in M.I. he described the AC Cobra as "hairier than a Borneo gorilla in a raccoon suit". He proclaimed the ride of a 1957 Pontiac to be as "smooth as a prom queen's thighs". The 1957 Ford "cornered as flat as a mailman's feet" and the 1954 De Soto is "as solid as the Rock of Gibralter and just as fast."

One of my favorites was his dog “Boji (”??). His love for the dog was legendary.
I once saw a question in his column where a writer asked: Your love for Boji id incredible. If there was a situation where a man and Boji were both about to go over the Niagara Falls, and yiu could save only one, which would you choose?

He called the 300F the biggest Bomb in the history of Detroit. Unlike today, in those days "Bomb" was a good thing: a big, powerful and (most importantly) fast car.
He was certainly very creative in the use of similes, that's for sure.

He did several coast to coast runs in Imperials and/or 300's late 50's, early 60's. Don't remember him using GM or Ford products for these runs, but the magazines are long gone, so can't check.
