Wednesday Ramblings

A snowy Spring day in Toronto, well at least it's Spring. Anyone have any thoughts on the front of the new Chrysler 300? Not as "in your face" as the last one, but apparently Chrysler will be offering an optional "old style" grille for those not wanting to fade into the crowd at the shopping centre. National Speed Sport News is the bible for racing news in North America  -  been around since the 30's(?)  -  is now closing. Anything to do with all the online info?
Speaking of publications........AW (AutoWeek) is a great bi-weekly read, check it out online (I don't see it in stores)  - not afraid to say what they think (like Car & Driver). If you like the older stuff, Hemmings has 2 very good publications........Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Muscle Car  -  full of interesting stuff. Also Collectible Automobile is a very classy and interesting publication  -  no ads!! I subscribe to all of these (no, I don't have a life). Also like the Saturday Wheels section in the Toronto Star. It has gotten better each year  -  comprehensive, up to date and say what they think  -  well done.
The latest model my cat, Hayley, and I are building is a '57 300C hardtop -  it will be a stunner.
Until next time.....

  1. Not too fond of the new grill (or the other lines). Looks very bland - kinda like a giant Sebring.

    Compare it to the '09 300c where the grill looks very much like the '57 (just upside down). Much better looking.
