The season starts with the Detroit Auto Show, or #NAIAS as its also known, if you have never been to Detroit for the press days, the excitement, buzz is palpable. A great overview of the Detroit Show by our friend The Autoextremist.
The long awaited 2014 Corvette finally broke cover last Sunday night, in case you missed it, how could you?
Here it is 2014 Corvette Stingray or simply scrool down to last Sunday. Yes design features are cool, spot on, others are a not as cool. Styling is personal preference!
This week we published our thoughts on Canadian Sales 2012. Yes it was a good year, yes we expected the Japanese (Honda & Toyota) to return with vigor. Yes we were impressed by the Hyundai/Kia juggernaut, and yes we were stunned by GM creating such a sustained vacuum for others to fill.
What used to be "white papers" are now "e-books" or we think they are called e-books. This week we published our first "e-book" of 2013 Money for the Deal, with hopefully more to follow.
We were not surprised that the cadillac ATS was nominated the "Car of the Year" at NAIS on Monday morning, as you know we experienced an ATS for a few days, its truly a world class car.

We have been (past tense) die hard NASCAR fans for countless years, back in the day there was something special about NASCAR, going to Daytona at least once. The annual tradition of watching the Daytona 500 on TV, and the Winston at Charlotte in May.
A classic case of the "good ole boys" racing, getting aggressive, a little creative, and winning.
At some point as expected for the sake of change, NASCAR moved away from its roots (what made the racing interesting) towards a higher form of being a business, multi car teams, tobacco no longer as predominant, and a myriad of other sponsors who are now reconsidering their positions.
In the meantime Brad Keselowski is the Sprint Cup Champion for 2012, the first for Brad, the first for Roger Penske, and Penske Racing after many years, and Dodge after quitting for 2013 wins a championship.
An informative article from WSJ on the present state of NASCAR..."Nascar's Leaky Fuel Tank".
You hopefully noticed that we covered The Circuit of the Americas on a few occasions, and yes we did watch a portion of the F1 race, and Lewis Hamilton's win...the circuit is a cool place which will impreve with time.
On a different note, if you have an interest in the music scene of the late 1960's and early 70's take a look and listen at The Smith Tapes.
Have you noticed the various publications offering the 99 cent special for one month, to subscribe to their publication...Strada as you know is still free.
