Vroom Room 

Good Morning!

Yes...another Friday, and another Vroom Room, come in we have cappuccino and biscotti, join the conversation, leave a comment if you wish.

Do you remember the launch of the Nissan Cube a few years ago, and the hypercube, with a variety of ambassadors across Canada. Mercedes-Benz is emulating a similar launch for the B Class, with B-The Face in this instance you have to be on Tumbler to enter the contest. It will be interesting to see how it unfolds, and develops. especially that its not a frictionless undertaking. 

The other day we on a road trip, we still keep our eyes out for interesting trucks. Its a long standing habit of always checking out trucks on th road. Especially the ones that catch your attention from a distance. 

We start coming up to this trailer with numerous lights instinctively we conclude that a Pete is most probably pulling the trailer, yes the mitre cut stacks are a dead give away that its a Pete. Sometimes you just get lucky to get an unobstructed shot of the Pete 379 probably a long nose too. On that same trip we saw a truck from Reliable Transport and wondered what cars it was hauling. 

From a different perspective, if you ever owned a Chevrolet, any knid of Chevrolet with a 327 and a Duntov cam, this article from Super Chevy on building an old school 327 will resonate. You certainly remember how fast that 327 revved up, and spinning that engine to get performance. Agreed...back in the day you had to be "hard core" to run and over cammed, over carburated engine on the street in a daily driver. 

At some point we will catch The Colonel and have him tell us about his 327, we have a feeling it will be a compelling story.
