Fun show today, Clifton Horace and Glenn Gent discussed the role of unions in today’s automotive market place. Can a union move from the confrontational attitude of the 50-60-70’s to the “lets build the best car we can attitude” of the 21st century by picketing dealerships? http://www.autoblog.com/2011/02/18/three-men-caught-vandalizing-seven-toyota-cars-at-chicago-auto-s/. Also a little history lesson from a man who grew up across from the Rouge steel plant in Detroit and worked briefly for Cadillac. Stay tuned we’ll see. Should the Army sponsor race cars? We think so.

There are no ghosts in the code. NASA recently announced that there are no ghosts in the code regarding Toyota’s unintended acceleration issues. Clif and Glenn explorer both the reality and psychology of fear regarding unintended acceleration.   http://www.businessweek.com/managing/content/feb2011/ca20110211_469910.htm. Internet scams abound, listen for some tips on how not to get ripped off. Also the BBB warns of a ruthless scam involving Canadian callers claiming to be helping grandchildren that were innocently jailed and need bail money to get back home.  Two local women have been hit for over $9,000 each… Don’t get taken!  Ford sues Ferrari; convinced that you might confuse the Ferrari F150 with the Ford F-150 Pickup. Our take is that most truck owners would notice immediately the lack of a tow hitch and four wheel drive. As always thanks for listening you can reach us at www.horacenissan.com.
