Its Friday, its the Vroom Room, come in make yourself comfortable we have cappuccino and biscotti, join the conversation...leave a comment.
Agreed its been brisk for the past few days...its winter, its Canada, and it seems that the media is on a mission to arrive an elusive minus 100 Centigrade with the wind chill.
Did you see Don Prudhomme at Barrett Jackson sell one of his funny cars with the hauler, as well as Tom McEwen's car. They were going to make some money, while disposing of a strong emotional attachement to the cars and haulers. Reality TV at its best.
You have to wonder when more recent cars will become popular, its a constant rerun of the same models, same years, same specs. There is an element of churning that is less interesting in 2014 than a few years ago.
When will a 1979 Camaro, replace the iconic 1969 Camaro? When will a 1994-96 Impala SS become interesting? We could keep on going, but hopefully you grasp our perspective.
An informative and visual recap of the Arizona Auction Week.
The aftermath of NAIAS, fascinating to read the reflective thoughts of various pundits once the glitter subdues. Some vehicle were remarkable, other ordinary, and some forgettable. Its not just the vehicles, the press conferences, its the direction that some manufacturers are taking, or signaling that is more telling.
MerBimAu at Detroit covered all the angles, niches, market nooks and crannies.
The Koreans as expected are on a vector to crack the luxury market in a patient fashion.
Ford with the aluminum F150 has signaled that North America is not interested in a mid size truck. What does Ford know that GM does not know with the Canyon?
Did you see how the roof works on the Porsche Targa?
Toyota is breaking out of its conservative image...or trying to break out.
Yes...the Z06 is a winner, great halo car.
Infiniti seems to create more questions than answers, reminds you of the days of the Q45.
Yes...tomorrow is the start of the Rolex 24...anxious to see the Corvette, as well as Mantella Autosport from Toronto with the Aston Martin.
Its also the World Economic Forum in Davos for the next few days.
Our thoughts and prayers to all the folks at L'Ile Verte.

Empowered by technology hopefully you had an opportunity to see a few reveals from the Detroit Auto Show live from whatever device your prefer. In case you missed it, the 2015 Z06 reveal. Yes...for some reason we remain staunch Chevrolet fans...go figure.
An informed perspective of the Detroit Auto Show from the Autoextremist.
There has been enough published by a myriad of publications, and manufacturer's press releases, that you have certainly decided what caught your imagination from the NAIAS. Just remember there are great and greater cars, no one makes a bad vehicle anymore.
We are already at mid month and the level of automotive activity / entertainment is ramping up starting with the various auctions in Arizona, while Barrett Jackson captures the bulk of the attention. Fascinating how cars that do not capture the imagination in one form or another do not generate strong prices.
The Rolex 24 is just around the corner too...yes its the first outing of the C7-R in the GTLM class of what is now the TUDOR series.
Its the Canadian January Reality that CMS (Citizen Main Street) has reached the end of the credit line starting to sink in? What do you think? Perhaps the Canadian banks that saved Canada a few years ago by liberally extending credit to CMS to provide the economy with breathing space. The same banks will save Canada again by a judicious tightening of credit to CMS.
Taliking of old race cars, this story of the seizure of a Porsche 935K by the DEA is a must read.
