In case you (we) didn’t already know it, Honda vehicles are now “officially” known as the longest-lasting mainstream automotive brand in America. From a Media Alert released from Torrance HQ yesterday:
TORRANCE, Calif., January 10, 2014 – Honda vehicles are the most durable and longest lasting of any mainstream automotive brand, according to Polk vehicle registration statistics from 1988-2012. No other mainstream brand had a greater percentage of vehicles on the road than the Honda brand. In the mainstream segment, an industry best 75% of all Honda vehicles sold in the last 25 years were still on the road.
Hey, duh! For the detailed release, here’s the link to Honda’s Newsroom.
I took the old 500k-er out for a lunchtime cruise in Tempe, Arizona.
The weekly Saturday car show at Scottsdale Pavilions was bustling with hundreds of vehicles. Each year at the time, the Phoenix area classic car scene revs up as the big auctions like Barrett-Jackson and Russo & Steele come to town.
Lots of American muscle cars dominated the show today.
I’m hanging up the car keys for a change and taking a flight to Michigan tomorrow for the North American International Auto Show. Among the highlights will be the reveal of Acura’s newest sports sedan (slated for Tuesday) as well as big debuts from many other carmakers.
So excited! Just not so sure I’m ready for this:
I’ll bring you news from the heart of the action next week!
