Old Autos was founded in 1987 when the “two Murrays”, Murray McEwan of Bothwell ON and Murray Cutler of Oakville ON, and their wives, Jan and Joyce joined forces and created a “Canadian Newspaper for the Enthusiast”. It grew from an idea to a full fledged publication of 56 to 90+ pages serving 20,000+ hobbyists coast to coast. Sickness forced Murray Cutler to sell his share to Murray and Janet McEwan in 2006. McEwan’s printing business Quad Printing was then amalgamated with Old Autos forming the present company name Old Autos Publications Inc. Sadly, Murray Cutler passed away in 2008 and Jan McEwan in 2009.
In December 2011, after 50 years in the publishing business, Murray passed the ownership of Old Autos over to office manager Mary Jo DePelsmaeker and bookkeeper (and daughter) Kim Meloche, who with the current capable team and Murray remaining part time, look forward to continue serving the antique vehicle hobby.
Currently seven full-time and two part-time staff produce Old Autos Newspaper twice monthly. Old Autos prides itself on small-town personal service, so when you call you will always speak to a ‘real’ person. You will never get ‘voice mail’ and you will always receive personal service…during regular business hours.
