It’s finally happened; they are starting to hop up hybrids. The Honda insight is being modified by Mugen Motor Sports www.kingmotorsports.com, check it out. Glenn talked about how Ford is getting around the chicken tax (import tax on trucks) by installing and then removing the seats and rear door on their new Ford Transit. Crazy way to make a living huh. Winter is coming so let’s get out there and start checking over our cars and make sure they are ready. Josh Atencio called in offering a free 100 point check over on any Nissan or Hyundai. 100 points! Clif wanted it to be 27 points so he could save some money but, noooooooo 100 point checkup for free! Management meeting to follow.

 

Don’t forget the Farmington boys and Girls Club fundraiser this Friday at the Club. BBQ dinner with all the fixings. Come in or take out www.bgcfarmington.org . As usual thanks for listening check us out at www.horacehyundai.com .

www.give.sanjuanmedicalfoundation.com is the place to go for the 27th annual cancer walk-a-thon if you are interested. Also Glenn is promoting Farmington Women’s Club annual fundraiser home show tour; get tickets at Four Corners Community Bank. Glenn and Clifton postulated about the new effect of GM’s buy it back program and whether you should have CEO’s marketing their companies. The new Whitaker guy (head of GM) is trying to mimic Lee Iacocca from the 1970 Chrysler campaign to “if you can find a better car, buy it”. We’ll see if it works. Speaking of working, what is up with El Paso BBQ closing? That is the second time a company is making money in Farmington but has to close because their corporate office is going broke. Sign up fast the rent is about $32,000+. Found another Craig’s list used car story that was worth repeating. Funny story… Also apparently wearing a monkey mask in Phoenix to avoid speeding tickets is not working any more. Thanks for listening we are www.horacehyundia.com.

Inquiring minds want to know what the new mixture should really be to mix up gas and oil for 2 cycle engines. Turns out 50:1 is now the correct mixture for everything, Clifton Horace discovered that the oil has improved and you can have one mixture for everything. Had a funny conversation with a customer who later called in describing his home built miniature Peter built. Take a look at the corner of Crouch Mesa and South Side river road. I tell you can’t make this stuff up.

 

Thinking about a midlife crisis? The Jackson Barrett Auction is going on in Las Vegas October 7-10. Just dreaming mind you but its fun thing to do. A bat-mobile motorcycle is going to be on sale… If you like the Zombie killer truck you can go to Craig list and search zombie; funniest ad we have seen for some time.  If you have some spare cash the Humane Society of the four Corners is doing a fund raiser, call them at 505-564-8519 or look up www.hs4c.org .  As always we would love to earn your business, check out our new used car selection at www.horacenissan.com . Tanks for listening.

Bet you are sick of Cash for Clunker news, now Glenn gets fired up about the statistics the government is putting out about the number one two and three best sellers in the C4C program http://money.cnn.com/2009/08/07/autos/cash_for_clunkers_sales/. The short version is that the Toyota Corolla was not first in the real math and the politically incorrect Ford F150 was 5th and the Silverado was 7th. The government was not quite honest in its reporting because everybody would be ticked those nasty pickup truck buyers took advantage of the program. The manufactures remained noticeably silent on this issue.

 

Clifton pontificated on what would be the greatest Nation Wide Demo Derby in the world. Give every citizen that wanted a C4C car and then have a demo derby in Washington DC. Last one standing would win the prize. Can you imagine 350,000 (assuming only half of the cars would even make it to DC) cars in a going for broke demo derby. At the end everybody  would make sure the motor was trashed and toss the keys to the NHTSA. What a mess! Check out http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/News/articleId=156387 if you want to look at the new Hyundai Sonata. As always thanks for listening and if you have any questions drop us a line or contact us at www.horacenissan.com
