Well ladies and gentlemen, I'm sorry to say, but today is the day that I rant about my true love in life-video games. To make myself look not as nerdy as I am, I've delayed for quite some time, but today is the day it explodes, so forgive me.
However, this may interest a great deal of you. I'm sure you're familiar with the Nintendo, as Shigeru Miyamoto's platform has…
NASCAR's Lenox Industrial Tools 301 came to Loudon, New Hampshire this past weekend for a June 27th race, and plenty of Vermont fans flocked to the semi-local New Hampshire Motor Speedway to see the fastest stock cars roaring around at top speeds of 112 mph (which seems low to me-I got that figure off Yahoo! Sports, so it could be a typo perhaps). I had a couple friends head down for the weekend-long party…
Toyota is working on an all new sportscar concept - which was originally going to be dubbed FT-86. But now, the car is being switched over to a new name plate, as its possible production phase becomes more of a reality.
The new name - FT-86 is going to become FR-S.
Want to know what FR-S stands for? Well, we don't know yet for sure. Some have speculated it stands for "Front-engine, Rear-wheel-drive Sports car." - though we highly doubt that.
According to World Car Fans, "The FT-86 was co-developed with Subaru, and is expected to use a turbocharged 2.0-liter boxer…
Toyota is opening yet another United States based facility to build more Toyota vehicles on American soil. They already have one based in Southern California.
The facility, located in Blue Springs, Mississippi, is a $1.3 Billion dollar plant. Ground breaking was this past week, and the assembly line is expected to be up and running by some time in 2011.
According to a report in The New York Times, "the Japanese automaker expects to hire 2,000 workers to build Corollas at the plant. Toyota halted construction on the Mississippi assembly plant 18 months ago when the global economy…
Cars.com just released their annual report regarding which car sold in the U.S. is the most American, and for the second year in a row the winner is the Toyota Camry. In fact, Toyota and Honda had five of the top ten in this study. What this tells me is the global auto industry is rapidly trending to build product where you will sell it as much as is possible. Why you ask…
There are two ways of looking at June 21st: either it's the official
start of summer or the days will get shorter. For me, Spring Training
has ended and baseball is underway-after all, they are called the "Boys
of Summer." The San Francisco Giants are only one and a half games back
and their pitching is looking very solid at this point, so I remain
cautiously optimistic. For those among us that are Yankee or Red Sox
fans, it looks like they will battle the rest of the way with age being
the only disadvantage for the Yankees. Those…
The Toyota Tundra has always been an image of reliability and raw power.
We typically see them traversing back roads, covered in grit, or
meandering towards Lake Champlain, bass boat and fishing tackle all
piled onto the trailer it tows. However, you'd never really think to see
one on a race track. But, the fact is, Toyota engineers have been
turning wrenches on high performance Tundra's for quite some time now.
Well, it's been over two months at the "new" job, and moniker new applies less and less as time wears on. Things are really coming together great at this point, as my boss and I have officially launched Phase 2. In phase 2, you can expect more sustained blogging, Social Media including prizes and cool news, a better newsletter, and much more.
We're well on our way to sustaining our dominance in the…
It is still a great time to lease a Toyota, as leasing is partly based on what the Manufacturer feels the desired car will be worth three to five years down the road from the day of the lease agreement. Truth be told, Toyota is very upbeat at the moment about the predicted value of used cars 3 years from now. So what does that mean for you in the big picture?
Let's face it, as Northern Vermonter's we all have at least one thing in common: none of us live here because we want to be on the Fortune 500. We live in Vermont because we enjoy jaywalking without the fear of having someone run us over. We like the idea of not worrying about getting mugged if we are alone at night, we enjoy the change in seasons, we enjoy the fact that…
