McGillivray is a “car & truck guy”  from way back – even before he got his first Province of Mantioba driver’s licence way back in the 1970’s.  Still you can spot McGillivray’s distinctive voice speaking with authority expounding his views on car & truck models and the automotive industry at any of the Canadian donut shops around the Waverley Auto Mall. You may agree or disagree but then everyone is entitled to their experience and views when it comes to personal choice on vehicle preferences and purchases
