Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

USA - Former Major League Baseball All-Star CJ Wilson has taken on the BAC Dealership in Arizona and North Texas.
Former Major League Baseball All-Star CJ Wilson has announced a multi-level dealership agreement with British car manufacturer Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) and CJ Wilson Racing.
The partnership will see CJ Wilson Racing and Entertainment become the exclusive dealership and service facility for BAC’s Mono supercar in the Arizona and North Texas markets.
Wilson has been a long-time fan of the 2.5-litre, four-cylinder British single-seater supercar and is delighted to promote this highly acclaimed design in the USA.
“Having spent a significant amount of time with the BAC Mono over the last couple of years, I have really fallen in love with the brand.
Whether a specialist car for the serious track-day enthusiast, or the ultimate road car, it really creates a feeling unrivalled by any other vehicle, regardless of price,” explained Wilson.
The CJ Wilson Racing founder added that he’s looking forward to building the brand further in the USA: “It’s awesome for CJWR to be able to partner with BAC; the agreement means we can distribute and maintain these amazing cars over two markets in Austin, Texas and Scottsdale, Arizona. Having service locations in each of these markets will allow Mono customers to get together and do what all enthusiasts want to do, namely share their experiences with people of a similar mindset.
“Being able to do group track days, group drives and group events is what we are all about as we begin to foster a 'Mono Culture' in the United States. We are looking forward to developing tours, extended drives, and track day events for our customers and those who want to learn more about the marque.”
Mark Rayner, BAC USA President said: "We're delighted to enter into this dealership agreement with CJ and CJ Wilson Racing. This partnership provides a solid base from which to deliver the BAC Mono to the North American market. The teams in Scottsdale and Austin are dynamic, brand aware and the right fit for BAC.
“CJ Wilson and his team will work with BAC to elevate a BAC Mono owners' package that creates a one-of-a-kind experience. As we grow our dealership network, this partnership will define our strategy for providing a best-in-class customer service and ownership experience."
Neill Briggs, BAC Co-Founder and Director of Product Development, added: “The BAC Mono is a supercar designed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, and it’s of vital importance for BAC to partner with dealers who fully understand the ethos of the Mono. CJ Wilson shares our passion for cars, and with his attention to detail and emphasis on exceptional customer care, we can be confident the BAC brand and Mono supercar will be accurately demonstrated to potential clients. We are delighted to announce this partnership and I look forward to a successful future”.
