Welcome to 2010 – time to change this blog!

This blog has always been for the benefit of my car clients – past, present and future.  I have never been one to really brag or boast about my talents as a car guy, as a person, as a businessman, but as I look around at the erosion of customer service in America I feel really good about what I can offer to anyone who is buying or selling a car.  So, this new dimension to my blog is something I want to try.  I will start regularly chronicling my background, my background with cars, my experience in the car business and business in general.  I may even speak about my own experiences as a consumer in and out of the car world. I invite comments, criticism, questions and anything else you want to bring to the table.

Happy New Year!

Earlier this year, common wisdom was that the Chevrolet Camaro Convertible had been canceled, or at least delayed indefinitely. Then word came in May that the car would see launch in the first quarter of 2011. Now that has been updated to the second quarter of 2011, but it’s officially confirmed by General Motors as headed to production.
