If you are ferrying cars on a huge ship, and you have a rope tied to it, don't forget to 

UN-TIE it!  This is as sad as the Honda that fell off the lift last week!

 Car Pro's musical version of the

Pledge of Allegiance...

On last Saturday's Car Pro Show, we played the musical version of the Pledge of Allegiance.  For a little background, right after 9/11, I sat down to teach my then 3-year old nephew the Pledge of Allegiance.  I had recording equipment with me and recorded the first take of it.  It was adorable and we have played it at the end of the North Texas show every week since.


Some five years later, we put it to a beautiful Lee Greenwood song, and play it on days when we want to honor our military or to remember the events of 9/11/2001.


Many have asked to hear it again, so here it is, just click on the link: 




Last Weekend of the Month!


It is the last weekend of the month for the dealers and the push is on!  Although Car Pro Show listeners have set pricing, the dealers get more aggressive with trade values, credit approvals, and even interest rates when they can.


We saw some more incentive movement in an upward way last week as the automakers try to finish May on a good note and pad those second quarter profits.


If you listened to last week's show, you know I talked a lot about the used car market being up again after a brief dip earlier in the year. This plays out very well if you have a trade-in. 


 I am seeing a lot of people who thought they were upside down find out they were not.  I am consistently hearing people say they got MORE for their trade than they anticipated.


Roll all that together and it's a great time to buy if the thought has crossed your mind, and you missed the sales over Memorial weekend.   




        Have you visited our website yet?!


The Car Pro Show drove into 2015 with an all-new spectacular website, designed with you, our valued listeners in mind!  We hope to be your online source for reviews and advice when it comes to everything automotive.


At, you will find easier navigation including easier access to all my car reviews, and easier connection to all our dealers affiliates.  Be sure to look at the Q&A section, all my most asked questions are there and we will be adding new ones all the time.

We thank you for looking at the new site, please          know it was all done for you!

Ford Introduces Backup Assist on 2016 F-150:

 Memorial Day weekend, the official kick-off to summer is upon us, a time when many of us will be hitching up our boats and heading to the lake. With that in mind, Ford thinks there's no better time to tell us about the all-new Trailer Backup Assist on the upcoming 2016 F-150. It's a feature that basically allows the truck to take over and back up a trailer on its own, with some initial driver guidance.


So what's so tough about backing up a trailer the old fashioned way. Well, it can be tricky. The truck's front wheels have to be turned the opposite direction of which way you want the trailer to go. If you turn too hard, the trailer can hit the vehicle or even jackknife.


  That's where Ford says its new Trailer Backup Assist comes in. It allows drivers to steer the trailer with a control knob, to indicate how much the system should turn the trailer. The system then automatically steers its wheels the desired amount and limits vehicle speed when needed. Drivers still have to control the brakes and acceleration.


Of course, it's not as simple as just turning a knob. First, you have to take measurements of the trailer and plug them into the computer system. Then you also need to add black and white stickers to the hitch so the rear cameras can keep track of what the trailer is doing. The rear camera gives the computer a reference angle using the stickers, limiting the truck's rearward speed as the angle of the trailer increase.


"Pro Trailer Backup Assist is a smart solution to save time and increase productivity for our customers. Instead of struggling to back up their trailer, they can spend more time on the job or enjoying the lake," says Doug Scott, Ford Truck Group marketing manager.


The technology to do this didn't happen overnight. Ford spent quite a few years developing and testing it. The technology taps into the F-150's electric power steering system and is based off the same software that led to the development of Ford's self-parking system.  


Pro Trailer Backup Assist joins a suite of driver-assist technologies already available on the all-new 2015 F-150. Among these features is Curve Control. It helps drivers maintain control of their vehicle by automatically reducing torque and applying four-wheel braking. This can reduce vehicle speed by up to 10 mph in approximately one second - assisting drivers in staying on their intended path.


The 2016 F-150, which by the way can tow 12,000 pounds, arrives in dealer showrooms later this year. 



 Classic Car Contest: Win an Auto Heat Shield!

We have had a lot of fun with our classic car contest on the Car Pro Show facebook page.  Kevin puts up a classic every Saturday morning, and we invite people to guess the year, make, and model.


 We will continue the contest but now there is a prize!  Each week, one luck winner will win a free Auto Heatshield!  If you have never seen the Auto Heatshield, it is a laser-cut, heavily insulated front windshield cover that gives you an exact fit, no matter what kind of car you drive.  Take a look here:  I have one for every car I own and they are awesome.  Usually, the generic brands let the sun in, they fall down, and they look awful.  With Auto Heatshield, you just unroll it, place it in the windshield, and use your sun visors to hold it in place and completely block all the sun.


Here is how the contest works:

-Every Saturday morning around 8 AM Central, Kevin will post a picture of a classic car.

-Go to our facebook page:, and if you have not done so yet, hit the "LIKE" button.

-Post your best guess of year, make, and model.

-Contest will end the following night (Sunday) at midnight Central time.

-All correct, complete entries will be eligible for a random drawing.

-Winner will be posted on Monday morning, and a certificate to get your free Auto Heatshield will be emailed to you.


CONGRATULATIONS to last week's winner:
Jeff Burton of Houston, Texas!
