Drive safe, its winter out there; listen to the second half of Four Corners Car Talk for some safe driving tips. Glenn talked about a Hyundai Genesis that was being painted with paint pins in California for some kind of fundraiser. Oh wait “paint pens!” www.autoblog.com/2009/10/28/sema-preview-street-concepts-to-create-custom-painted-hyundai-g/#continued . .After that he expounded on the 1997 Dodge Colt . www.autoblog.com/2009/10/28/video-1977-dodge-colt-dealer-film-is-a-completely-amazing-time/#continued . Does anybody know what the story was behind the free dinner “save half of your power bill” meeting at KB Dillions on October 26th? Inquiring minds want to know but are not willing to go through all the hoopla and pony show of a dinner presentation. Great call from a gentleman thinking about a new truck. Biased and unbiased opinions were given on Ford Pickup engines and shopping on the internet. Let’s be safe out there, and remember that driving even a recliner while drunk is still drunk driving. www.autoblog.com/2009/10/27/police-auctioning-off-motorized-la-z-boy-used-in-dwi/. Let us know your thoughts www.horacenissan.com  , and thanks for listening.

Driver distractions: Turns out according to a www.leasetrader.com survey, women think that kids are a much bigger distraction than texting behind the wheel. Men feel that road rage is a bigger distraction than texting. Go to laugh; men also thought that checking out another driver was also a distraction. Maybe we should outlaw pretty girls and kids to make us all safer.

 

Used car salesperson makes good… Can you believe that the first “Gone in 60 seconds” was made by a used car salesmen with his own 1971 Ford Mustang. While Mr. H B Halicki  has passed on, his wife of 60 years still drives the original Eleanor as a daily driver. Nicholas Cage went on to remake the movie with a 1968 mustang going by same name of Eleanor. Thanks for listening; you can always contact us via www.horacehyundai.com.

Valve stems, probably one of the most exciting things ever to enter the lexicon of Four Corners Car Talk. First, make sure you have covers on your valve stems, it is winter and any kind of salt or dirt can get in the valve and cause your light to come on. Second don’t put the fancy metal valve caps on because they will mess up the radio transmitter and cause the stupid light to come on. Third if you really get bored check out your owners manual and learn how to reset your TPMS… You put your right foot in you take your right foot out…. That is what it’s all about…

 

Glenn brings out the dog in all of us, turns out Honda is coming out with a “best friend’ package that includes a dog kennel, a dog ramp, and something else, all for $900… The things people will do…

 

Don’t forget the fabules Checker Cab museum in Michigan Can’t wait to see it at www.gilmorecarmuseum.org. As always thanks for listening and we are always at www.horcehyundai.com if you have a question.

Had some fun this morning with Jay Leno’s new super Eco Jet car that only gets about 14 gph (versus our cars that use about 2.1 gallon per hour), you can check it out at www.popularmechanics.com. Glen talked about a Ferrari that has been painted to look like a cracked vase from the Chinese Ming Dynasty, kind of cool and kind of stupid. There is just no accounting for people with too much money. If you have an old motor home that need parts (like Glenn’s son) check out www.rv.net/obsoleteindex.cfm

Or if you are looking for a replacement gas tank try www.transferflow.com.

 

James McMurtry is the artist we have been playing (Does the governor know and Three Wise men in an SUV) if you are interested; the album is “Just us kids”. Thanks for listening and please know that we appreciate you (especially Walt, who guessed “Cummins” a third of the way into the story). Contact us anytime through www.horacehyundai.com. And thanks again. PS check us out at www.farmingtonradio.com 1620 on your am dial.

A very sad story in the press about a Lexus that would not shut off and ended up killing a family of four in California. Apparently the floor mat got stuck under the accelerator pedal and the car would not stop. The driver called 911; you can Google “Lexus 911” and listen to the tape but I must warn you that it is very sad. Clif and Glenn reviewed the various things the driver could have done to avoid the accident. It’s a good review for any driver any time. Take the time to check your floor mats to avoid the problem.  Toyota has issued a recall; until you received your recall notice please remove the floor mats from the effected vehicles.

 

How to store and ripen tomatoes, Shiprock fair, and the Four corners World Extreme Rock Grand Nation Championships are all subjects today. Lastly Clifton Horace advises that if you do not have a life you might think about buying a $150 Chrysler K car and joining their club. Check it out at www.chryslerkcar.com. As always check out www.horacehyundai.com for the best deals in the four corners and thanks for listening.
