2014 marks a year of celebration for Dodge as the marque turns 100. Though much was accomplished in that century, Philip Powell reminds us that Dodge might never have existed without a push from Ford, one that Henry came to regret.

When Nigel hinted that the Rolls-Royce by Vignale may have been the ugliest Rolls ever made we were shocked. An ugly Rolls-Royce? Impossible. But then we saw the photo of this wealthy New Yorker’s travesty and we’re still in shock.

Though Lexus has long been admired for luxury and quality it is not a name we normally associate with sports cars. But as Tony explains, the new RC F coupe is about to change all that. Agile and handsome, it’s the Lexus we’ve been waiting for.

In this edition, we are very pleased to welcome two new contributors to Tim’s Car Talk. Nigel Matthews and Tony Whitney are very well-known and respected in the automotive community and have many years of experience writing about both new and old cars. We look forward to their articles and perspective in addition to Philip Powell’s, and we hope you will find them as informative and enjoyable as well.

Latest Pictures

We recently attended the 2014 Seaside Cruisers Fathers day show in downtown Qualicum Beach. This is one of the largest shows on Vancouver Island and includes a weekend of activities. We only wish we could have stayed longer to get more pictures.
