It’s What My Son Said….

Standard

This morning I read something my son, the Mitsubishi dealer, wrote on Facebook and all I heard in my mind was:

 

My son Schuyleur began..

“One of the reasons I bought a Mitsubishi franchise last year was to increase my service business. I figured the warranty work alone would be enough to keep us busy in the back”

What the heck is that all about my boy? You need more adjectives– be more expressive!  Where the heck are the photos?  To me, all this is like saying:

“If Apple made a car would it have Windows?”

“In our first month we performed four warranty jobs ??????. (Bad for us. Good news for the consumer)”.

I agree, but people should know about your compassion in hiring staff. There are not many places your 16-month-old niece Sophia could get a mechanics job.

What most people would be more interested in is that you began your journey in the car business at an early age– and you kept on no matter who you accidentally ran over.

“Mitsubishi wasn’t a brand I paid much attention to in the last 9 years being in the car business and being a huge car buff”.

Car buff indeed. There is one thing you can’t fool the Seccaspina brothers with- and that is cars. They know what’s going on LOL. Please see the grey hairs on top of my head as an example.

Check your engine? Yup, it’s still there. Trust us!

Schuyleur changed his horn on his new ride to gun shot sounds- people move out of the way much faster now.

Perry picks a $1,000 Mitsubishi Eclipse and mods the sh*t out of it and wins Race the Runway 2015. When a bird has the audacity to poop on his Mitsubishi – he just eats a huge plate of scrambled eggs in front of them to show them what he is capable of.

“Having dealt with Mitsubishi now for almost eight months, I see why they have such a loyal customer base. The value is there, the reliability is there and seeing what these things command at auctions (resale value) is wild”.

Here is a photo of Schuyleur and his pals at a car auction many years ago. I believe it was held at the Caldwell Elementary School right here in Carleton Place.  There was obviously a fierce bidding war going on by the looks of it. Bet there was a Mitsubishi  involved. These guys don’t look like they drive fast- they probably just fly low.

“I obviously am now biased, but I wish I knew a few years ago what I know now. I would have had less ‘come backs’ when I was an independent used car dealer carrying a few more Mitsu’s.”

Sky, tell people how honest you are in what you do or sell. A perfect example is the picture above and what he is telling friends outside the sand dunes:

“Heh guys-it’s not a Mitsubishi, but this colour is so hot right now- and I’ll even throw in free 30 day free towing! It’s guaranteed to drive the Lanark County ladies wild!”

“The marketing may not be where it should be, but having owned different brands over the last number of years (exotic cars included) I can say Mitsubishi is a VERY strong product.”

As your mother knows with writing, marketing is like those offensive cigarette labels. Is anyone really listening or understanding what you say?

Tell people how you go the extra mile, and when your old pal Michelangelo from Ninja Turtles was not available for marketing — you finally dragged out the Storyland Bunny you had kept in hiding for three years. That has got to bring them in! Bet you those Mitsubishi  head honchos are impressed with that bunny! LOL

“They don’t throw a 10 year warranty on the cars so the dealer can fix them. Trust me!”

The above pictures says it all to me.

 

nice

“Those that know me know that I call a spade a spade. Take my obviously-now biased review as you will”.

So I guess I can put everything Sky said about Mitsubishi in one image. That’s it – that’s all- no fancy words needed as the point will come across instantly. This is how your Mother would sell a Mitsubishi. Hell yeah!

I Love you both forever until I die- and if there is life after that, I’ll still love you both then.

Merry Christmas Perry and Sky. Your Dad is watching over you both.

 

We miss you Ange

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.
