Chocolate, Mars, Lincolns & auctions

Good Morning Warren and Friends,

Lots of news this week!

First, you’ve only got a little more than a week to win a box of chocolates for your Mother to give her for Mother’s day. If you have a story to tell about your Mom (and presumably a Nissan), submit it, and you could be one of the fifty people to win a box of chocolates.

Second, Buzz Aldrin will be in your town May 17 talking about Mars; Human to Mars that is. Aldrin will be one of the speakers at the Human to Mars Summit and on his twitter page he gave the code to get a discount; Buzz Mars.

I drove a 2016 Lincoln MKX AWD SUV this week. Base price was $47,650, the car I drove opted out at $58,740. EPA fuel economy was 17 city/24 highway/19 combined – we got 21 mpg combined. Some of the competitors would be; Ford Edge, Acura RDX, Cadillac SRX, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, Audi Q5, BMW X3, Infiniti QX70, Volvo XC60, Volkswagen Touareg

Also, if you are interested in owning The Ultimate Automotive Bookshelf, a Framed 1954 German Grand Prix Poster or a 1973 Indianapolis Qualifying Plaque that are all up for auction. The proceeds will go to radio icon Bob Long to help with his medical issues. Go here or if you want to help through his GoFundMe.
