The “Cowboy”! Great for laughs but not for meeting the woman of my dreams. Etta James “At Last” started playing when my eyes met hers. I didn’t close the deal, I was afraid to make I contact with this vixen. The “Cowboy” and I couldn’t infiltrate her posse. Gorgeous girl with the brown wavey hair I miss you. I will be wondering the lobby every day at 9:00 A.M until our eyes meet again. Don’t make me go door to door floor to floor asking directions to the 3rd floor.
Doing pretty darn well overall 64.5% . 50% last week…

The recent revelation that congresspeople have been successful in coercing GM to rescind dealer closures in their districts, has the rest of our elected representatives (not to mention GM itself) sitting up and taking notice. In a conference call with Michigan’s congressional delegation, Fritz Henderson said GM was close to a deal which would restore a number of “mistakenly” closed dealerships. (more…)
Car dealers are some of the most politically connected people in America. As we reported yesterday, more than a few axed GM store owners demonstrated their political muscles by forcing the nationalized automaker to rescind their franchise terminations. Further back in time, we highlighted the Obama administration’s “stealth” dealer bailout: a car dealer-specific Small Business Administration (SBA) loan program. Under the program, the SBA guarantees 75 percent of a car dealer’s floor-plan line of credit, ranging from $500,000 to $2 million. The SBA’s network of private-sector lenders make the loans. In theory. In practice, it’s been what the Brits call a damp squib. Although Automotive News [AN, sub] fails to put any hard numbers to the program’s failure, they acknowledge that the SBA dealer deal “has had trouble attracting lender participation since its May launch.” Needless to say, the “answer” to the SBA lenders’ entirely understandable reticence/prudence is . . . bigger loans and more federal backing.

With a straight-from-the-parts-bin interior and engine, the LR3, Ford-owned Land Rover‘s luxury off-road-ready-and-willing SUV failed miserably at the “luxury” part. After spending the day driving its successor, the 2010 Land Rover LR4, it looks like India got it right.
Stepping up to the LR4, you immediately see an SUV very similar to the LR3 — but with a few minor updates. The LR4 gets exterior enhancements such as new tail lights, a two-bar mesh grille (with matching fender vents — ooh!) and new front bumper and fenders. But the exterior was never the problem for us.

Stop thinking out of the box. Stop having paradigm shifts. STOP: seizing the day, being forward-thinking, saying the pen is mightier than the sword. (It isn’t) The guy with the sword will kill your ass dead. Stop trying to figure out who moved your cheese, there is no cheese. You were lied to. Do not hit the ground running, that is ridiculous. It will hurt far less if you don’t hit the ground at all, but if you have to hit it, go slow.
STOP: trying to make yourself sound both wealthy and well educated by using boardroom terms on the street such as: hocky stick, whitespace, metrics, code, cadence, 30,000ft view, 5,000ft view, north of expectations, drill down, and the ever so annoying ‘just a 6-iron away’ golf analogy.
STOP: having synergy. Synergy is a lame concept brought about because someone in the group sucks. Throw that guy out of the group & move on. Stop saying you gave it 110%. It’s not mathematically possible. You just drank too much coffee and not enough beer.
Stop having win-win situations. That only happened when Pamela Anderson was hot and went boating with Tommy Lee. Stop saying there’s no ‘I’ in ‘team’. There is. Just ask Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Terrell Owens, Kanye West, and Spencer Pratt. T E I M…. And lastly, STOP telling me I can’t have my cake and eat it too. I did. Last night. Next time someone says that, take their cake. They don’t deserve it. It’s all lies.
There. I said it. I’ve heard enough, and I’m begging you all to stop it, please. Do it for the children if nothing else.
Okay, I’m going to level with you here… I totally stole this story. I don’t remember where I stole it from. It rocks though. I read this story in a magazine somewhere, and googled the hell out of it a few years ago until I found it. So… to whomever wrote it several years ago… nice work. Try to make your name more memorable though. Try a name like ‘Floyd Francisco’. I would’ve remembered that.
This story is even more amazing than when my son was a baby, and he could poop with such force that it would literally blow out the top of his shirt in the back. I was in awe of his asstastic powers.
Yeah… but this is better than that. Here ya go: (more…)
Before he decided to fill Steve Irwin’s safari boots, this Vernon Texas native was the used car manager at Wolfe Ford Dodge. He went from hunting cars to hogs, and now he is taking this little piggy to market. I’m not exactly certain what county, state, or world record Joe Don Wilson broke with this massacre, but I’d venture to guess a new record of sorts was accomplished. Wilbarger County is hunters paradise for many seasons. Best known for it’s trophy white tail deer. If you buy a truck from Wolfe, and would like for us to arrange a hunt for you, we can do that. Actually, that happens more than you might think. Contact Dan Gomillion at 888-GOWOLFE x808. Tell him you’ll buy a new truck if he’ll put you on some big deer, hogs, dove, quail , and all that goes along with it…whatever itch you need to scratch….He’ll hook that right up.
