Its the last Friday of August, and of the Dog Days of summer. Its the Vroom Room, come in enjoy the cappuccino and biscotti join the conversation, leave a comment.
Agreed...you are probably wondering where the summer went, with our chilly weather, and now noticeably shorter days...we are wondering the same thing. The constant is that time passes by very quickly, and you control the usage of time.
Before we forget, if you have an interest in classic cars mark the Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance held on September 13 and 14 in your calendar. From our perspective its a must attend event.
The other day we were reading in the mainstream media a piece by folks that presumably know and understand the auto business. Although they have no clue about the craftsmanship in the showroom, that a vast number of folks are in a negative equity position on their trades, that close to 60% of new vehicles are financed over 72 months.
Fascinating how folks see points from a "vacuum" not understanding all the variables that are attached to turn the "vacuum" into reality. The best part is that mainstream media actually publishes this stuff (being polite here).
Again...you need to be your own editor. There is a lot of stuff flying around.
Have you noticed that manufacturers are increasingly exploring "infotainment" in vehicles, while local authorities are increasingly cracking down on "distracted driving". Modern vehicles have all sorts of safety features, and all sorts of distractions.
Have you noticed when an individual often half the age of the car, engages with an old school fully mechanical car. Especially if its a high performance version. These folks experience an epiphany in dealing with a car where the driver is the "master" of the car.

Have a wonderful long week end with your family and friends.
