Sound Off: My Rant About Ford Motor Company
   Published January 9, 2020
For most of my life, people said that if I cut myself, I would bleed Ford blue. I worked at and/or owned Ford dealerships for over 30 years. I was the first two-time Chairman of the Ford National Dealer Council. I was the largest Ford dealer/owner in Texas for 7 straight years. So, why in hour 2 of last Saturday’s show did I tee off on the company I represented for decades?

It is simple: I still care and have fond memories of the Blue Oval. However, I  Read More
The Year In Review: Top Test Drives of 2019
   Published December 26, 2019
For a lot of years, I chose my Top Five vehicles I drove during the year. It was a daunting task to whittle the list down to five, and I always felt like I left some great cars off the list. Like last year, I will not limit myself to a number, but rather share with you the vehicles I liked most by category.

So, with that, here we go! By segment, these are the vehicles I liked most based on initial quality, overall value within the segment, overall driving enjoyment, resale value, and  Read More

2020 BMW M340i Review
   Published October 7, 2019
This week we are looking at the all-new 2020 BMW M340i sedan. Not to be confused with the ultra-fast M3, which is not out yet, the M340i slots between the 330i and the M3, and it is sort of the best of both worlds.

This BMW looks terrific with a new grill that has a solid background to improve aerodynamics. It has aggressive looks, beautiful 19” wheels, sharp lines, a rear spoiler, dual exhaust, and I love the blue brake calipers.  Read More

Watching your video of the guy throwing the car in reverse going 70 brought back some old memories. Evidently, GM technology has come a long way. Back in 1967 Rick Rickles, who owned Rickles Chevrolet- Cadillac in Spur, Texas,  Read More
