Happy Holidays From Your Friends At TTAC

The team at TTAC, wherever it may be, wishes you the best of all holidays.
As we are often accused of being pro-import, we honor an age-old European tradition: “The bridge.”
In Europe, this is when you take only a handful working days off to turn Christmas and New Year into a two-week vacation, which you spend in the Maldives, or in Phuket (because of the ancient temples…) At TTAC, we make it a mini-bridge, taking it easy until New Year. If and when there are major news, we will cover them. In the new year, we will be back in full force.

Import-biased? Meh, to a Canadian like me they're all imports. (What's more Canadian, a Honda made in Ontario or a GM made in Ontario? Is my Honda made in Ohio more Canadian than a Mazda made in Japan? What does it matter?) By my reckoning, you call cars like they are and if the US car manufacturers made cars better than the non-US competitors, you'd be all over them. Seems to me, in fact, you've been all over some Ford products lately and your review of the Cadillac ATS was pretty favourable as well. Anyone who buys a car because it's American (or Japanese, or German, or Mexican) over all other considerations is doing himself or herself a disservice. Buy what's best. At worst, you end up with the best vehicle for yourself and a real financial motivation to the more local providers to up their game. (It's no coincidence that Ford's upped their game so much; they had to to succeed in Europe.)
Photo Jim has it right, the so called Big Three made crappy cars and Trucks over a thirty year period plus and dumped a lot of them here in Canada, no wonder the Import Makers found fertile ground to sell there products here in North America, even the US Consumer could only take some of there shoddy products and live with there many faults,one excuse was that it was made on a Friday!
All the best to the masthead, crew, and B&B readership. Wishing everyone a great New Year. :-)
I have 2+ weeks vacation from dec 21 to jan 7, but it´s not all positive. It´s like; "Use it or loose your work" The economy is down, and you want to save some money just in case, but that´s not easy if you have a vacation :/
