Canadian class actions against Takata over airbags to expand

A Canadian law firm said Thursday it planned to expand its class actions against embattled Japanese auto parts giant Takata and car manufacturers over defective airbags. The plaintiffs are seeking more than Can$3.0 billion from Takata and auto manufacturers Chrysler, Honda, Nissan and Toyota for the loss of value of their vehicles caused by the recall, according to Sutts, Strosberg LLP. Once revised Canadian figures are released, Sutts, Strosberg LLP will amend its lawsuit to reflect the increased number of cars affected by the recall, a spokesman for the firm told AFP. http://dlvr.it/9wBg7R

Happy #PackRatDay

In keeping with the intent of Pack Rat Day, here are some Do’s and Don’t’s:

Don’t clean your room, basement, garage or any other area today.
Don’t discard anything today…It may be valuable.
Don’t even empty the trash today. You might have accidentally thrown out something useful.
Do keep an eye out for useful stuff being discarded by others.
Do go to garage and rummage sales. They can be pack rat gold mines.
Do look around your belongings and be thankful for what you have.
Do spend time thinking of uses for your things. Justification for saving is satisfying.

Temperatures have been climbing higher and higher each day here in Florida, but an earlier sunrise and summer weather didn’t deter anyone from coming out for our monthly Cars and Coffee gathering.

From the showroom, to the parking lot of BIC next door, dozens upon dozens of gorgeous cars and even more enthusiasts filled every inch of concrete, leaving just enough space for the scores of photographers to take the best shot possible. There were more than a few special guests on hand, including a Porsche 918 Spyder and a fleet of Lamborghinis outside.

Many of our local sponsors and advertisers were also present, helping fill in more than a few spots with their own show-ready vehicles. Those visitors included:

Crown Mercedes-Benz

Dimmitt Automotive Group

Reeves Import Motorcars

Just Toys Classic Cars

Lincoln Land

Bert Smith Automotive

First Class Detailing

Classic Touch Dry Cleaners

Take a moment to browse through the photos from this event in the galleries below, featuring many of our local photographers and regular attendees. Be sure to visit us for the next Cars and Coffee event, which will be held at our headquarters, once again, from 7 am to 9 am on June 20.

Nashua North students show off auto tech skills at state competition

NASHUA – Nashua high school students are ready to compete in an automotive skills challenge at New England Dragway against students from across northern New England. Competitors can win scholarships, prizes and recognition from top automotive technology colleges. Nashua High School North seniors Jacob Goudreau and Ricardo Duenas, accompanied by automotive technology instructor John Finocchiaro, are heading to the Northern New England Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills Challenge in Epping on Saturday. Finocchiaro said the students are in his Automotive II class. “These are two good students; they have a good head on their shoulders,” he said. Goudreau and Duanas are competing as one of 10 teams from New Hampshire. The challenge, in its 66th year, includes 62 students on 30 teams from New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont racing to diagnose and repair an intentionally “bugged” 2015 Ford Fiesta SE.
