Over the years in NASCAR there have been many voices bringing race results and news to fans. Whether it was calling the race like Bob Jenkins or reporting from the pits like Chris Economaki, these talented broadcasters brought NASCAR to life over the airwaves.

I was asked to write an article about our sales process at Mojo Motors. I’ll do that at some point, but I had an interesting email from a close friend that I’d like to share with his permission instead.
James, a freelance photographer, is in the middle of shopping for a used car. I gave him some pointers and sent him an article, “Confessions of a Used Car Salesman,” that I consider THE seminal work on the car business—it is required reading at Mojo Motors and should be required reading before you buy a car. The following is an email he sent back to me. [keep reading]
If you read The Monday Grind blog post this morning, you know Chevrolet has resurrected the Stingray name for the 2014 Corvette. We took some of our favorite pictures from the web and posted them below.
We also messed around with Chevrolet’s paint and wheel simulator to put together some sweet combinations (white paint and black wheels FTW). Make the jump to see the brand new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray unveiled on Sunday, January 13, 2013.
The latest Tom Cruise action flick is Jack Reacher where he plays protagonist Jack Reacher, a former military cop wandering from one city to another. If you haven’t seen the movie, you might want to avoid reading this blog post as there are some spoiler alerts. If you have seen the movie, you know it wasn’t an all-out action movie like of Shoot ‘Em Up, but it is an action movie nonetheless with senseless murder, car chases and twists.
The movie opens with a sniper picking off presumably innocent people walking along the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh. The man charged with the crime, Barr, is a former military sniper. While in police custody for questioning, he writes on a piece of paper, “Get Jack Reacher.” And so the movie begins and Tom Cruise in all of his 5′ 7″ glory comes to town to find out who is responsible for the murders.
Reacher believes Barr doesn’t have the skills as a sniper to kill all those people so the lawyer defending Barr teams up with Reacher to find the real sniper. In the process of trying to find who framed Barr, Reacher discovers corruption in the city’s government and a gang using a construction company as a front.
There are a handful of cars in the movie including a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, a 2012 Mercedes Benz C250 CDI Coupe, a 2012 Ford Transit Connect, a 2006 Audi A6 C6 and a really old Silverado pickup from the late 70′s, early 80′s. Similar to the film Drive, cars driven by characters in the movie Jack Reacher serve as a reflection of the people who drive them. [keep reading]
