44 years ago today, I started as a trainee fleet salesman at Torque Ford Strathpine.
My first manager, Peter Conder, was the manager of that dealership. All these years later, I’m grateful to all the people (or most of them anyway) who took a part in my progress from salesman to dealership owner. After selling down the dealerships in 2015, I started Car Business, a specialist new car brokerage company. And the crazy thing, at least to me, is that I’m still dealing with a lot of the same customers from back then.
A special thank you to them.
A lot of people ask me why I do what I do and why I haven’t retired – the answer is pretty simple. I love what I do and will keep at it until I can’t anymore
So perhaps you’re thinking that I’m some sort of car expert?
Well, after 44 years in the auto industry as a salesman, manager and owner of dealerships, I think I am. The Car Guy and associated companies Car Business and Genuine Spares are the sites to find all sorts of information about the motor industry. Including but not limited to the best way to buy a new car, selling your existing car, car finance, car insurance, accessories, spare parts, repairs and just about anything else.
And if you can’t find what you’re looking for on these sites, send an email to [email protected]. I’ll try to provide an answer for you.
