Same job, new locale

20 posts in this topic

Well, through a series of unexpected events, myself and my General Manager from LOR Motorcars ended up with some old friends of his from Plaza Dodge at their lot in Hudson, Florida called Auto Corral. These guys are wholesalers who buy new car trades from big dealers and resell them at the local autctions. For retail, that means we get the cars cheaper and they mostly always good Florida cars. I'm the ISM (Internet Sales Manger) of three stores now - Auto Corral, Sunshine Motors (literally around the block), and AC Motorsports, which has a large inventory of motorcycles, scooters, ATVs and other randomness. Between the two stores, we have over 100 vehicles, including weird stuff like COE box vans and a '61 Chevy Apache. The guy who owns the lots is a Corvette nut and a C4 'Vette is actally part of our logo for some reason. We have about a dozen Corvettes from 70s to C6s, so that's always fun.

Anyhow, I just wanted to share some of the cooler things we have and that I get to drive - at least for a quarter mile so I can photograph them in a nice neighborhood!

1972 Chevy C10 with a 454 crate motor under the hood!

1989 Corvette convertible. An automatic, but gorgeous inside and out. Black on red on red with 90k miles. Beautiful cruiser, especially if it were the 90s.

1990 Chevrolet 454 SS. All original, 90k miles. A beautiful truck and, God, what a tire-shredder!

1995 Chevy Forward Control van. Nothing that special, but I've never seen one before.

2004 Corvette convertible with a procharge supercharger. 6-SPD and super fast.

1961 Chevy Apache. Nicely restored and just plain cool

1997 30th Anniversary Camaro Z/28. 180k miles but incredibly clean!

1984 Porsche 928S. A bit edgy, but charming.

I always loved the Chevy Apache name. On a side note, one of my sister-in-laws lives in Hudson, FL. I visited her and the lovely Mermaids of Weeki Wachee the last time I was in Florida.

That C10 is red hot.

Buddy just sold his SS454 for funds for his '38 Chevy coupe.

Good luck with the expanded responsibilities.

Oh on a side note, if you see a 1968 Pontiac Grand Prix, send me an E-Mail. I still haven't found, what I'm looking for (Hey that sounds like a good song title). :smilewide:

Seems like The Fly is open for business, if you know what I mean. Lots of cool vehicles there, Mr. Fly.:)

Welcome back, Fly!

I'm in the process of changing jobs myself, so I feel the excitement of starting something new. Cool! Hope all goes well at Auto Corral!

Welcome back Fly! You've sure been a busy fellow the past several months. BTW, what are they asking for the '90 Chevy 454SS???

How's the "monkey-$hit bronze" 455-powered Bi-Centenial LeSabre? :)

And what's with the once-every-few-weeks-pop-ins on here?

That Porsche 928 makes me drool.

Thanks WMJ, but white and red are off the table, just don't like those colors, anything else is a go.

I can see red, but why not white?

2006 HHR 2LT. Nothing real unique, but I've just really fallen for these things. Awesome ride and lightyears ahead of the dumpy PT.

1990 Mercedes 560SEC. Last of the old hardtop Benzes.
