2014 - Year of the Road Trip

A long time ago the auto industry sold us on purchasing cars so that we would have the "freedom" to travel to anywhere.   This is still true today, and frankly I do not like airports anymore so my car is my ticket to open road travel.  There is nothing so exciting as picking a destination, planning the trip with a map, packing a delicious picnic basket, finding places to stay (google for hotels and yelp for restaurants, hotels, grocery stores, etc) and going to those wonderful places you have always thought about seeing.  It is a fine way to spend valuable vacation time and it is all about you on a road trip.  The term "Bucket List" can have new meaning.  I recently returned from a road trip to San Juanico, Mexico, which is deep in the Baja Peninsula, on the Pacific side.  I must confess, although the destination is spectacular (fresh fish, surfing, kayaking, collecting shells on empty beaches) the drive down was amazing.  Highway 1 goes all the way down to Cabo San Lucas and is an excellent two lane highway.  Highlights of my trip include: doing "donuts" for breakfast on the beach (and I am not talking about the kind made of dough), kayaking with sea lions, excellent food, and an encounter with a real Seahawk! 

As always, for a safe road trip have your vehicle checked over and serviced properly in advance.  The last thing you want on your road trip is car trouble.  Call today for an appointment for service, or just drop by anytime to check your oil and tire pressure.

Mercedes Benz – A Historical Perspective

I am always asked “How did you ever get in this business?” and my answer is always the same…I love Mercedes.  One of my life’s highlights was recently visiting the Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.  I was in awe not only of the cars, but how this company has shaped the automotive industry and continues to do so everyday.  Below are some of the invention highlights by this wonderful company.  Enjoy.

1886 – The first car.  Car Benz is awarded the German patent #37435 for a 3 wheeled, self propelled “Motor-wagon”.  Rear mounted, single cylinder engine, this first automobile changes forever the way people move and sparks a legacy of innovation that continues to this day.

1894 – Honeycomb radiator

1910 – Multi-valve engine

1921 – Supercharged engine

1934 -  4 wheel independent suspension

1936 – Diesel passenger car

1978 – Antilock Braking system (ABS)

1982 – 4-Matic All Wheel Drive (AWD)

1995 – Electric Stability Control (ESP)

1997 – Smart Key

2000 – Tele Aid/mbrace (navigation system)
