    A lot of people look at a vehicle and see nothing but an engine, four tires and a tank of gas. Or simply a way to get from point A to point B. But cars can mean so much more. On this Now or Never, meet people whose lives have been shaped by the cars they drive or ride in. From a Toronto cab driver who is on a mission to change up people's boring commutes with his blinged-out taxi, to a young woman whose terrifying ride compelled her to take action... and jump start a new business. And hop in the passenger seat with a son as he takes an emotional drive in his dad's classic yellow Ford — after it's been sitting in a garage for four decades.
