GM Remains Committed to Cars and Cadillac

Ford started Detroit’s round of first-quarter earnings calls with the blunt news it is largely getting out of the car business, with only the Mustang and a Focus a few years from now. FCA was second to bat and CEO Sergio Marchionne talked about troubles launching the new Ram which is taking longer and costing more than forecast. Rounding out the calls was clean-up batter General Motors. Yes, GM has new full-size pickups launching this fall, but the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra are doing so...

That’s No Chevelle! It’s a Very Rare, L79-Powered, 1965 Acadian Beaumont Sport Deluxe

With all the political talk about trade pacts and free-trade agreements among countries around the globe, it’s worth remembering a time when tariffs weighed heavily in the cross-border commerce between the United States and Canada, particularly when it came to automobiles. With roughly a tenth of the population of the United States, Canada was understandably protective of its manufacturing industry in the early decades of vehicle production.
