Housekeeping: TTAC Takes Juneteenth Off
The edict came down from our corporate parent last week: Juneteenth is now an official company-wide holiday.
That means we’ll be off on Friday, June 19th.
As is often the case when we’re off, there may be some pre-written posts that go live. And since not every car company is observing the day, if news breaks and one of us is near a keyboard, we’ll try to catch it and post. I, myself, will spend part of the day learning about a refresh for a particular German sedan (under embargo until the 23rd).
Our weekend posting schedule will likely remain the same, even with Father’s Day being this Sunday.
So, until we’re back full-throttle on Monday, take some time to reflect on the experiences of others, and enjoy Father’s Day, however you may celebrate it during a time of social distance. And if your dad has departed, or you don’t get along, I understand Father’s Day may be fraught for you. In that case, simply have a good weekend and we’ll be back on Monday.
Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.
