THQ on the Road
Readers may have noticed it has been quite around here. Where have I gone? I have been on the road a lot lately. Here is what is coming soon.
First, in the coming week (hopefully!), I’ll bring you a first drive impression of the 5.6L V8 Endurance from Nissan. Luckily, I was part of a select group of truck writers to drive the truck, tour the engine plant and spend time with Nissan engineers.
Next, I spent some time in Texas with the Texas Auto Writers Association at 2016 Spring Roundup. While I don’t have any direct stories from this event, it was a great time driving many competitors vehicles among the 50 cars at the event.
I drove everything from a 2016 Cadillac CTS-V and 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible to 2016 Fiat 500. Just lots of good stuff and times spent on the Texas Motor Speedway as well as around the track.
Next week, I’m heading off to New Orleans to meet with Victor Sheppard and Mike Sweers. You may remember this story on the Million Mile Tundra. There will be a special presentation where Toyota will be taking Victor’s Tundra and giving him a new one. Can’t wait to examine this truck with Sweers and get his take.
After that, I’m heading off at the end of the month for the Toyota Texas Bass Festival in Texas. Again, I don’t really have a story planned here, but I’m thinking with fishing, trucks and country music, there is no doubt to be at least 3-4 stories here.
Finally, I’m off to Wisconsin at the end of the month to visit Road American with the Midwest Automotive Media Association. I’m hearing strong rumors that the new Honda Ridgeline will be there and I know there is currently an event going on in Texas with the truck. I’ve also be lead to believe there will be another event on this truck that I could get invited to. You may have noticed I’ve been somewhat quiet on it. Frankly, I’m just bewildered on their presentation in Detroit and I really want to learn more about the direction they are taking. Right now, I just don’t get it.
So, never fear THQ readers. Lots of great content coming your way. You know, when I slow down a bit and get some time!
