R.I.P. Randall Mario Poffo (Macho Man Randy Savage)

It would seem that Macho Man Randy Savage had a heart attack while driving in his Jeep and slammed into a tree. That is really sad for his family but it is also a sad day for professional wrestling fans as they mourn a legend, and for Slim Jims everywhere. Here is my favorite clip of the late great Bone Saw.

Life Regret #4: Blue Planners



As mentioned in some previous post I have had 4 major regrets in my life. Most have been related to disobeying counsel from parents and church leaders. This life regret has recently made it to the life regret list but it seems that there was no way to avoid it. Whenever I make a mistake I try and retrace my steps to see where I took a wrong turn and try and avoid that path in the future. This one I had no warning of but I am hoping to put the word out so others don't make the same mistake I did...

Hyundai in High Demand



The other day I was working with some guests who had a special buying opportunity through the U.S. military. When we pulled up the Hyundai Elantra in the system it was flagged as a "high demand" vehicle. That is an understatement! I have been selling cars for 6 years now and I have never seen the car business so crazy as it is right now. The used car market is really strong and the new car market is stronger. Usually one or the other suffers but both are doing very well.


We have the most inventory in the state and we don't have any Elantra right now and will be out of Sonatas by the end of the month and every other Hyundai is going fast! People are scrambling to get their deposits in on cars that won't arrive for another 4-6 weeks! Hyundai is doing everything they can and say that inventory should be better in the next few months. Thanks to everyone for their patience!

Life Regret #3: Dating



No one can make it through the twists and turns on the road of life without hitting a few bumps. It would be nice to have a road map so you can know how to spot a pot hole before you hit one. Unfortunately, you have to gain your own experience in life and hopefully learn from your own mistakes. So far in my short 28 years, I have found 4 major regrets that could have changed my life for the better.

2013 Hyundai Sonata Sketch

The current Hyundai Sonata (YF) has been a huge success. We are the largest dealer in the our region and have the most inventory and are expected to sell out of Sonatas this month! One thing I love about Hyundai is their constant improvements. They are are on a 5 year model rotation which means every 5 years their vehicles are new from the ground up and about every 2-3 years that same model gets a "fresh" face. Some models even receive improvements every 6 months. This means constant motion for Hyundai in their R&D departments across the world. The 2011 Hyundai Sonata is a record breaking car for the industry and for Hyundai but will be due for a freshening soon. Here is a sketch that Hyundai just released of the new i40 sedan (Sonata) which is influenced from Hyundai's iFlow concept of last year. Here is an original sketch for the 2011 Hyundai Sonata and you can see how close the concept is to the production model. What do you think?

New Hyundai Trade In Buy Back Program!



Today Hyundai has set in place a new Hyundai Assurance Program. Everyone knows that once you drive off the lot your vehicle looses some value. The only way to protect yourself was to do a closed ended lease and get a guaranteed future value from the manufacturer or finance company. Well now Hyundai is offering a guaranteed future value on every car for lease or purchase. For the first 4 years of ownership!!! Hyundai has to be the most creative auto manufacturer for incentives on their vehicles. The best part is - they are REAL incentives that people care about. Some car companies give you a buy one car get a llama free but not Hyundai!

A little background - When my mother was in her teenage years in San Lorenzo, CA she was invited to a bible study put on by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She grew up in the Lutheran and Methodist faiths but agreed to join the group and learn more.
