Good Morning Warren and Friends,
I’m so excited! Last year you kept asking if Warren and I were going to be at the auto show together and we didn’t get it together quickly enough to make it happen.
We are going to be at the auto show TOGETHER Friday, Jan 22 from 12:00-1:00, at the opening of the show at the WANADA booth.
IT GETS EVEN BETTER! EACH WEEK WE’RE OFFERING TWO FREE TICKETS TO THE FRIDAY SHOW. We’re still figuring out how to do that, but stay tuned.
Is everyone getting their Christmas shopping done? What are some great presents you’ve bought for the car?
I found this really cool jump charger that can charge your car or charge your smartphone. It’s called the Cobra JumPack CPP 8000. For a little over $100, you can throw it in your purse and not worry again.

Tell me – when you’re buying a vehicle do you look at the carfax report? How important is the automobile history of the car? What are the most important issues in the automobile history of a used car do you look for when purchasing a car? Are they service records, accidents, etc. Would you pay more for a car if the owner is able to show you all the records for the car?
