Fabrice Monceaux, Co-publisher
Fabrice has dedicated his life to his passion: American cars. Trained as an arts director, he later led his own ad agency in Paris before coming to Canada to launch the printed V8 Passion magazine. He bought his first collector’s car at the age of 17, a 1958 Chevrolet Belair, and his collection and collecting passion has grown ever since.
2007 saw the presentation of his V8 Passion Speedster 31 project as part of the VAG de Granby show, and later the same year was asked to showcase it at Burlington’s NSRA show in Vermont. He has been able to establish V8 passion as the reference publication for the hobby in the province of Quebec and in French-speaking Canada. Fabrice was the spokesperson for the 2010 edition of the Granby show.
