Look Who’s Talking
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.

n this edition, Philip looks at the evolution of four door sedans and why in most cases the biggest sellers remain the least valued by collectors. How many manufacturers still make a model that comes in four doors or a coupe? I couldn’t think of any. Philip also takes us back in time to his radio days in the 50′s and his fascination with the new Ferrari 250 Europa.
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.
