Volvo Halifax Assembly

Volvo was the first foreign carmaker to produce automobiles in North America. The company’s Halifax assembly facility built Volvos between 1963 and 1998.

This past June, Volvo gave the public a peek at its redesigned S60 compact sedan. Long one of the Swedish maker’s volume products, the S60 introduction alone would have been news enough to merit media attention. It was the venue for the S60 reveal that stole the show, however.

Where would you live if you could commute each workday in an autonomous-driving, fully-functional, connected, comfortable, mobile office space?

Simon Templar and Volvo P1800, What did The Saint Drive?

Roger Moore starred as Simon Templar in the popular show The Saint, which ran from 1962-1969 on British TV.

Here’s a question for you: What was Jaguar’s biggest-ever marketing blunder? Many might argue it was the X-Type, a compact sedan that was little more than a Ford Mondeo (called Contour in the U.S.) gilded with a Jaguar grille, curvy sheet metal, and some extra wood and leather inside. By virtually every measure, the X-Type was a flop as a Jaguar, though the wagon version was not without its charms.

1983 Ford Thunderbird

1983 Ford Thunderbird

I graduated from high school in 1983. The third year of President Ronald Reagan’s first term was pretty good to me—I spent the summer working full time at a service station, I starting taking classes at a local junior college, and I spent a considerable amount of time looking at, reading about, and talking about cars.
