Vroom Room 

Good Morning!

Its the first day and Friday of the month, its the Vroom Room, come in make yourself comfortable, join the conversation leave a comment.

Ever think of much content we read in a month? Perhaps someone should come up with a read-o-meter and really scare us in how profusely we all read, and some write in a month. Or how little.

Agreed the days are getting longer...yes spring is on the horizon.

What can you say about Danica Patrick at Daytona, running in the leading pack for the entire race, staying out of trouble, and finishing 8th...GREAT! A memorable race for Danica! Agreed...you expected the good ole boys with experience to freight train right by Danica in the closing lap...exactly what Jimmie Johnson and Junior did. 

Fascinating read on the science and data powering junk food and making it addictive.

Toyota is celebrating their 75th anniversary take a look at the Toyota Interactive Family Tree

After the myriad of rumours, Posterous which is owned by Twitter is closing permanently on April 30, as you probably know we have been publishing content on Posterous, using it as our notebook for a few years. Our content on Posterous is here.

We have embarked on a process of moving some of our Posterous content to a new notes section that we have started on ouir publication to replace Posterous. Tale a look at Strada Notes.

In case you need a reminder, last year Schwartz...yes that Schwartz the smoked meat place on St.Laurent in Montreal was sold for appreciable money to a group of investors. Now they will sell Schwartz smoked meat in plastice bags on grocery stores.  Perhaps it will be good for the brand since the actual Schwartz is very very cramped for space, which also gives its character. Reminds you of luxury car manufacturers going downstream to sell more product to more people. 

Perhaps you are familiar with Louis Galanos, who has an extensive photo gallery/collection on Flickr of photos he took of what are old race cars today. Its a fascinating experience to review his photos, and his comments. If you have been a gearhead for a few years, or better decades the photos truly resonate. 

The story and an extensive collection of photos from the 1963 12 Hours of Sebring race which is in a few weeks this year. Think about this, the photos are from 50 years ago! Look at the tires on the cars!

This one caught our attention...

Not every team could get a warehouse for a garage. This is the Richie Ginther/Innes Ireland Ferrari 250 GTO in the paddock. They would end up finishing 6th overall. (Tom Bigelow photo)
