Its Friday, its the Vroom Room, enjoy the cappuccino and biscotti join the conversation.
As you have probably heard Ed Welburn is retiring as head of Design for GM. A few years back we had the opportunity to be a participant in a presentation from Ed Welburn. Yes...it struck us that he was a cool car dude.
Some individuals in the auto business exude coolness, and Ed is one of those, upholding a tradition started by Harley Earl, and continued by Bill Mitchell. Did you know that a few decades back The Colonel had the unique opportunity to visit the Styling building at the GM tech center.
By now you know...we are firm believers that "styling" sells.
Have you noticed how folks in the auto business in Canada have a tendency of mixing up US information / data / opinions with Canada. We are a different country, and if the old times 10 rule would apply they would be close to 20M not 17M new units in the US. What do you think?
If you are in Canada and are just becoming aware / focusing on Certified Pre Owned, that has literally been around for at least a couple of decades. You have to ask yourself where you were hiding.
Have you noticed that the price of gas, a barrel of oil, and the CDN dollar are creeping up lately. Gas we know in the GTA gas companies have an issue with gas below $1.00 a liter. The barrel of oil from our perspective some folks on this planet are realising that market share, and low prices are a costly experiment. Although a compelling wake up call for everyone. The CDN dollar is tied at the hip with the barrel of oil.
