The sales side of the Auto industry is often plagued with misconceptions which can be primarily traced back to the days before the internet where there was less information and transparency about new vehicle pricing, trade-in value, and financing, and further complicated by sales quotas and the occasional aggressive "slick talking" salesman. I too have been jarred by those experiences but then there are companies which break the stigma and provide you with an exceptional experience which can be characterized by good pricing, integrity, and complete customer satisfaction. That is the case with AutoNation!

I have just completed by 5th purchase at AutoNation (Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram) of Pembroke Pines, FL by trading in my 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT for a new 2014 Ram 1500 Sport. The team there is exceptional and they are highly recommended. Some people think that good pricing and customer service are only available at family dealerships but I have found that this large company has and continues to do the best for me every time. My last 5 vehicle purchases have been at AutoNation Dealerships and If you are in the market for a new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram, I would urge you to try AutoNation in Pembroke Pines, Fl. I have also had great sales experiences at AutoNation Nissan (ask for Earl Marks 954-290-3806) or Pembroke Pines and AutoNation Chevrolet of Pembroke Pines (ask for Mo Tavakoli 954-803-5070).

I want to thank the entire team at AutoNation Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram of Pembroke Pines, FL for doing right by me.

Am I happy? You bet I am.

… and ask for "Mo" or "Al Dimurro"

The essence of cool

I’m very happy to be here and want to thank TV4Autos for giving me the opportunity to discuss all things automotive. As noted in my introduction, I’m primarily a Corvette person, but I’m not blind to the “coolness” of other exciting cars, trucks or motorcycles. We’ll use this opportunity to take a look at whatever makes noise, goes fast, or is otherwise “cool”.

First, I guess we need to determine what “cool” is. defines “cool” as slang which means: a) great, fine, excellent; or b) characterized by great facility, highly skilled or clever. These definitions may suit the crossword puzzle fans, but defining a subjective word such as “cool” with other subjective words doesn’t really help us out here.

Trying to define “cool” brings to mind Justice Potter Stewart’s oft quoted comment about hard core pornography: “…it is almost impossible to define, but I know it when I see it.”

“Cool” is also virtually impossible to define, but we know it when we see it. Some things/people are undeniably “cool”—’63 Corvette coupes are “cool”; Steve McQueen was “cool”; Paul Newman was “cool”. Other things/people, such as Camrys and Richard Nixon, will never be “cool”. Between these polar extremes lies a vast gray area in which “coolness” is determined solely by the eyes of the beholder.

We’ll take a look at vehicles that are “cool”, or ones that are made so by the “coolness” of their owners. One upcoming article will be about the special Valentino Balboni edition of the Lamborghini Gallardo. Mr. Balboni spent his entire forty year career at Lamborghini test driving just about every Lambo that came off the production line. How “cool” is that?
