Something Really Spells Funny on Highway 7



It was a normal day for Motorhouse Mitsubishi owner Schuyleur Seccaspina– He had his power breakfast- complete with sprinkles and he became charged!


                                    (Not Schuyleur- Just our regular Carleton Place folk on Bridge Street)


Then he challenged others with his regular superheroe workout.


It was a good day, and as he said on Facebook: “They’re spinning the good stuff this morning!!”#britney #1980 #orsomething


Suddenly across the street at Carleton Place Ford he saw something that disturbed him.

“What is Sael? Can I do a Sael?”


He quickly sent one of his Motorhouse best to find out what was going on.

“We have an update on the ‘SAEL’ conundrum across the street. My friend and fellow coworker Matt Trueman is now on scene. Everything is GOOD.”


“It wasn’t us!” said the folks at Carleton Ford. “It must have been some of those highway illiterate chip-stand gypsies that changed the letters!” The Ford team quickly drove off in embarrassment while the Motorhouse Mitsubishi team looked on. In the end one of the staff confessed, and blamed it on autocorrect!

Rumours flooded the Ottawa Valley that Motorhouse Mitsubishi was closing? Were they bad spellers too?


With that Motorhouse Mitsubishi replied: “We’d like to thank everyone who came out to our super sale!!! Judging by our lot, we’ll do the same sale in the near future!”

“To all the people congratulating Motorhouse on their exit from the car business they say: WE ARE STILL OPEN!!! WE NEEDED TO MOVE CARS IN ORDER TO PAINT THE BUILDING….THE COLOUR IS….DRUMROLL…… EXCITING MITSUBISHI WHITE!!!!”



Last seen in the new Motorhouse Mitsubishi Batman theme car Anthony (Business Manager)  and Rob Cassell (Parts Manager) (who look like Sully and Mike from Monsters Inc.) were busy plotting for another episode of Highway 7 Dealership Prank Wars. No idea if the Carleton Place KIA guys are getting involved.

I would be careful because as Ted Hurdis said: “Payback is a bitch!”


Is this childish unprofessional behaviour? Of course not– it’s the exact opposite!

All I can say is– it’s so nice to see businesses getting along. Good on both of you Carleton Ford and Motorhouse Mitsubishi. The adage that two brains are better than one may explain why a lot of entrepreneurs and small business create good friendship partnerships. Come on Carleton Place KIA– everyone is waiting for your input! Head on down to Highway 7 for all your automotive needs! Why? Because if dealerships can get along on a personal basis– then that says a lot about who they really are when they sell you a car!
