Vroom Room 

Good Morning!

Its Friday, its the Vroom Room, come in make yourself comfortable, we have cappuccino and biscotti, join the conversation. The "sfogliatelles" from Naples...unfortunately they would not be fresh enough.

By now you know that we are blues fans, especially the older/classic style blues, and obvious that channel 70 Bluesville on XM is one of our favorites.

Here is the deal:

Last week we were in the Ottawa area on one of our road trips, in case you did not know Ottawa a few months ago was voted as the most boring city in Canada. On this trip we discovered Dawg 101.9 FM, give a listen to the player, for a boring city Dawg FM is very cool if you are a contemporary blues fan.

Canadian Sales:

This was the strongest July in recent history, a record month for July. As usual if a few manufacturers relax their incentives others get aggressive...some things never change. Yes...pick ups endure.

As you know we have often mentioned that the Canadian economy is riding on the back of the Canadian CMS (Citizen Main Street) from taking out loans to working for low wages, an informtive article The Pay Is Too Damn Low  with mentions to the days when the auto industry was paying good wages. Agreed we could have a long and animated discussion...but CMS is still enduring the brunt of the recovery.

You have to wonder how the tightening of mortgages will impact auto sales in the coming months an informative article CMHC Moves To Take the Steam Out of the Housing Market.

An interesting and informative article on the history of Monterey and the upcoming Pebble Beach Concour.

Our usual old race cars from Modena Track Days 2013

Stevie Ray Vaughan

SRV and Double Trouble at Montreux...SRV caught our attention a few decades ago, same time as when CD players and CD changers in the trunk (remember those) were starting to gather attention.
