Vroom Room

Good Morning,

Its Friday, its the Vroom Room come in make yourself comfortable, enjoy the cappuccino and biscotti join the conversation.

We are officially in the Strada Dog Days of Summer, and encourage you to do the same.

Especially if you turned Canada Day into a long week end.

Did you know that Riviere Du Loup was a Dog Days of Summer hub several generations ago?

Is gridlock the appropriate name for traffic and congestion that is not moving fast, or going anywhere in a hurry. These past few days in the GTA its been a case of not going anywhere fast especially with folks taking a few days off to enjoy a long Canada Day week end.

There are moments when everything moves and flows, and other moments when its just snarled up.

The other day we had an opportunity to look at a Camaro Z28 up close in a showroom. It was black on black which for some reason does not work on the car. The thought flashes "Who would buy such a car?"...its barely streetable with those tires. Did we forget to mention 80K for a Camaro.

On a track it must be a ton of fun...and 80K might start looking like good value and a deal. But static in a showroom black on black...not so much.

Reminds you of the convertible on the used car lot in July..."its summer it will sell".

The other day we needed to convert a VGA outlet to HDMI which is the new VGA sort of thing. Here is the deal, you can get a VGA to HDMI converter which will not plug into your VGA outlet, you can get an HDMI coupler just in case, as well as an HDMI cable. 

You sort of make all of this work, or think its going to work.

From a mechanical perspective its like having a 1/4 inch drive connected to a 1/2 drive ratchet, connected to a 10 cm extension then an adapter to 1/4 inch 20 cm extension. If it sounds like its all going to fly apart the moment you apply some force...we would agree.

With the VGA to HDMI it becomes a case of "no signal" at a most innoprtune time. Which reinforces that "if it looks a little flimsy connecting all sorts of stuff together...don't think you have the final solution...it might just turn into a "no signal".

Vroom Room

Good Morning,

Ferrari CaliforniaIts Friday, its the Vroom Room,make yourself comfortable, enjoy the cappuccino and biscotti, join the conversation.

Have you noticed that Chevrolet with the Camaro Z28 and Ford with the Mustang GT350 are reviving old pony car memories from 2 generations back. Yes...Chrysler stuffed the equivalent of an "old school Hemi" in their Challenger. Lets ask the question "What would you rather have a German turbo something with paddles, or a Detroit V8 something with a clutch pedal?"

What do you think "Boomers" with "Millenial" offsprings relate to most? Especially if the Boomers went to Trans Am races way back in the day.

A Ford V8 with a "flat crank" is encroaching on Ferrari territory.

What is a "flat cranK" or a "single plane crankshaft"...on a traditional V8 the crank throws are at 90 degrees which generates the tradional V8 sound. A flat crank the throws are at 180 degrees (flat) which generates the traditional Ferrari V8 sound. 

The Los Angeles Auto Show opens this week, while the traditional North American show circuit starts for another year, accompanied by some inspired product, and the usual corporate hyperbole.

The other day we were reading that a publication is offering a "backstage" walk around during press days at the Detroit Auto Show for $495 per person. First thought "Are we reading this correctly?" Second thought "A brilliant way to value the knowledge base of the publication". Third thought "Perhaps we should charge a fee for our knowledge base".

There continues to be talk by industry professionals on the lenght of auto loans, and who is offering these loans. It makes for interesting conversations. As we have been saying "free flowing money" is one element empowering auto sales in Canada.

Our usual old race cars from the Classic 24 Hour Daytona 2014...enjoy the photography.
