Well, faithfull fans, the Nissan Guy is homeless... ok, not like HOMELESS but homeless in the sense that I, like about 500 others formally working for the Superior Auto Group, am now back on the street lookin for a gig. The economy claims another victom(s)! Just as things started to really get going the rug was pulled, a claasic case of to little to late, our recent short lived success was jus not enough to dig the group out of a huge hole. The Superior Auto Group shut the doors on all its dealers at the close of business on Tuesday Feb 24th, 2009. Heres a pretty good article with with a few more details from a bay area news paper you can check out. FEAR NOT fans, I will endeaver to find new and exciting... blah blah blah, oh crap. I'll find something, that much I know for sure, what I'll be sellin and where is the mystery but rest assured I'll keep you all posted....... wish me luck, and luck for everyone going thru the same....
Yup, thats him, the ole Terminator RAISING the reistration fees for vehicle sales here in California on Feb 20th. Well, to be fair, the budget included a ton of other stuff but its the reg fess that piss me off! Oops, sorry bout that, I shouldnt have used that type of language...... Its very frustrating though cause I remember back in 2004 when the fees went up and sales dropped statewide by like 30%, his whole campaign was centered on abolishing the 'car tax' and now he brings it back! Of course tha airways here in So Cal have been abuzz with nothing but the budget, screaming for a 'total recall' of the Aahnold. Nearly everyone will be affected by this latest nail in our economic coffin, kindergartens are being copped by receiving less funding, numerous tranportation projects were included in the 'collateral damage' and with an empty wallet I will have to quit the gym and take up 'running man'!!!! LOL, I so kill myself!!!!! Ahem, my apologies for all the bad movie references, I couldnt help ma self....... Hopefully these tough times wont force me to go 'comando' style cause I cant afford underware!!!! ha ha ha..... I understand the new budget is subtitled 'true lies'!!!!! Ok, ok, ok...... I have reached 'the end of days' of this.........
In a week chock full of heart wrenching news, like the whole Chris Brown thing, I mean whats up with that?????? Oh wait, I meant, with car industry news continuing to be a combination of bleak and negative there are a few more cassualties of the ever worsening economic auto 'pocolapse now' that we are enduring. The next generation Nissan Titan which was to be built on the Dodge Ram chassis has been put on indefinate hold as Chrysler struggles to stay a company. In the oevrview given to congress Chrysler even mentioned that the best bet for Chrysler would be a merger with GM, at this point its anyones guess where the future of 2 of the big three lies....... A small car built by Nissan to be sold as a Dodge has also been put off but who cares, I dont sell Dodge!!!!! Ok, thats not nice.... whatev!! I'm thinking there are more than a few Chrysler exec's that are kicking themselves for not pursuing talks with Nissan last year when good old Carlos put the offer on the table........
Wishing all the fans of the Nissan Guy a Happy Valentines Day!
