Auto Dealership Fun: Top Five Pickups for Tailgate Parties

on Fri, Sep 30, 2016 @ 07:00 AM By | Kevin Walli | 0 Comments |
It’s football season and with that comes some serious tailgating before the big games. The parking lot is full of cars, trucks and RVs getting their barbeques fired up for brats, burgers, steaks, dogs or whatever else is on the menu. A tailgate party requires an adequate set up with chairs, tables, cooler, grill, condiments and sometimes a TV to watch the pre-game shows. The right vehicle, especially one just driven off an auto dealership lot, makes it that much more enjoyable. Inspired by a CARFAX article about the five best used cars for tailgating, we researched five popular pickups because they have a decided edge over cars in the realm of tailgating. These trucks supply the necessary space for transporting all the gear and provide additional inspiration for arriving in style.

New Truck and Auto Sales in the U.S. from 1931-2015 [Infographic]

Think you've got it hard moving the auto sales needle at your dealership in 2016? Imagine selling cars in 1931, two years into the Great Depression. The 40s were worse and you can guess why.

GIs had money to spend; there was a true middle class; and the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 added 41,000 more miles to our Interstate Highway System, so auto sales took off.

The lights go down and the crowd goes wild. Striding up to the mic, dangling in the spotlight hitting the center of the ring, the MC looks around intently until the crowd quiets just a little, giving him his cue: "In the blue corner," he begins, "hailing from parts unknown are YOU! Savvy, book smart and streetwise, entrepreneurial, and a bare-knuckle business manager or owner, this is a fighter who doesn't take lightly being slipped bogus paper. With his training at its peak, and looking like he'll retain his title tonight, here's the... Fake Check Slugger!"

Kudos to the NFL. We're talking about them in the middle of the off season! The draft, freshly completed at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, was the ultimate game of decision making. All of the teams now have their future superstars, or draft busts, in place. The impact of these decisions are felt for years to come as the teams’ fortunes ride on their ability to select the talent that will lead to success or disappointment. Even with all of the research, the combine and pro days that the teams put the players through, tough decisions will be made, right or wrong.
