You’ve seen the ads on TV, online, and you’ve heard them on the radio. It is an annual event and some car companies have been doing the same campaigns for years, like the Lexus December to Remember Event, that is in its 25th year now.
As you go through the list, you’ll see some themes are holiday oriented, some are year-end, and some just make no sense.
For fun, I thought I’d save you the trouble of trying to remember them all and give you a list of them, in Read More
Thursday we will gather around the dinner table with family and friends to share good food, warm laughter, and the happy memories of Thanksgivings past. For many families whose loved ones serve in the Armed Forces, this year’s Thanksgiving celebration will not be complete.
A familiar voice will not be heard and a chair at the table will remain empty because they have someone far from home serving our country.
Thursday, members of the Armed Forces will gather in mess halls or tents across Read More

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

A long-time CarProShow listener and newsletter subscriber shared this with me after watching my video last week about the guy intentionally throwing his automatic transmission car into reverse at 70-miles per hour. This is a sad story:
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
In 18-years on the radio, I can count the number of products I have endorsed on one hand. I have had many opportunities, but after much due diligence, I usually end up saying no.
There are two products, however, that I am sold on personally and very proud to put my name on.
NuVinAirA dear friend of mine named Alan Brown worked for me for many years. He started washing cars for me when he was about 16-years old. He was the hardest working guy on the wash rack and, to be honest, I saw a Read More

My trusty sidekick is out of town this Saturday, so I am doing something I’ve never done before; giving you a chance to find out what your car is worth. As you have heard me say, a car is worth whatever someone is willing to write a check for.
Trey Russell, the General Manager of Five Star Ford in Carrollton will give you a solid bid, either as a trade-in OR he’ll buy it outright, regardless of make or model.
Just my humble opinion, but many of our youth today do not realize the true meaning of the 4th of July. It is, after all, our Independence Day. Holidays are always fun and a great time to get together with family and friends, but freedom isn’t free, and never will be. Men and women of America have laid down their lives so we could enjoy living in the greatest nation on earth.
I hope you’ll pause, give thanks, and remember those who died before us, and Read More

Besides, observance of Father’s Day provides children an opportunity to express love and respect for their fathers. The sentiment goes a long way in strengthening father-child relationship and consequently in the emotional development of a child.
The idea of celebrating Father’s Day was given by Ms. Sonora Dodd, a loving daughter from Read More
I have to admit, this never crossed my mind as a safety issue, but the Dorset Police in the United Kingdom have issued the following warning. I have talked on the CarProUSA radio show about the dangers of drinking out of ceramic or metal cups before. I saw a case about a fatality that occurred when an airbag deployed just as a man was putting a ceramic coffee up to his mouth.
Here is the message regarding lanyards:
There have been a couple of serious traffic accidents of note (not Read More
