Neil Schrock and 50 Years at Sanderson

We had a celebrity roast on Thursday the 25th for Neil Schrock to celebrate his 50th anniversary at Sanderson Ford.  Imagine going through just about every job there is at a car dealership?  He’s done it.  We had about 150 guests in attendance including local media representatives and on air personalities.

The event was hosted by Sue and David Kimmerle and their family in the Sanderson Village and Museum.  Those roasting Neil were; Al McCoy, the emcee, as well as Mike Broomhead of KFYI, Tim & Willy of KMLE, and Todd Walsh of FSNAZ.  Neil’s lifelong friend, Eldon, wife Mary, and Dave and Sue Kimmerle. 

The things we learned about Neil were amazing.  Ask him about the GTO with 3 dining room seats the next time you see him. 

The Kimmerle family cooked and catered some BBQ, baked beans, coleslaw and sodas.

I’ve added a photo album and here is a video provided by celebrities at Bonneville Radio.


DBacks Meet and Greet

Drop by Sanderson Ford on Friday the 12th, and meet JJ Putz and Ryan Roberts from the Arizona DiamondBacks.  They will be here from noon to 1pm.  We will also be holding a contest for 25 pairs of free game tickets.  You can watch the DiamondBacks beat up on the Mets this weekend.

Ford Reveals Buyer’s Tastes

Ford data reveals   about buyers around the US.  Who would think, looking around, that white was NOT the favorite Ford color in Arizona.  Would you guess Molten Orange?  Gold, silver, and finally, white round out the top colors. 

Seattle and San Francisco must have problems getting lost and parking their cars because they are tops in; BLIS, rear view cameras, active park assist, and navigation. 

You would think us Arizonans would own the air conditioned seat category, but we didn’t even rank in the top 5.  Would you have guessed Seattle, Denver, and San Francisco.  How about heated seats?  Can you believe Atlanta and Charlotte are in the top 5. 

Rainy and cold Seattle is also tops in moon roofs.  I guess better for watching the storm clouds!

Hybrid vehicles are #1 and #2 in Seattle and San Francisco, but Phoenix is #5 on this list.  Thanks 43 mpg with AC Fusion Hybrid.

In Arizona, we prefer diesels, hybrids,and  manual transmissions, but have no preference on gas engine size.

Those areas of the country looking for V-8 power include; Orlando, Memphis, Charlotte, Houston, and Seattle.  The economically minded (4 cylinder) people live in Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Detroit, Boston, and Denver. 

Coastal cities like muted colors while the Midwest has an affinity for red.  The east coast is definately green. 

New Yorkers consume the most vehicles with rear seat DVD systems.  Turns out Sponge pants Bob really is an effective babysitter.

The national pick-up truck capital is still shared by Dallas and Houston.  This is also the area with the highest demand for tow packages.  95% of Super Duty customers tow with their trucks. 

Using the data Ford collects allows it to maximize the model mix and deliver vehicles that actually meet customers need regionally.  The imports should try to figure this out.

Of course, if you want an east coast color, with Seattle options, Denver seats, and Texas towing capability, all you need to do is drop by Sanderson Ford.  If we don’t have it, we’ll be happy to order it for you!
