Everyone remembers Ricardo Montalban and his Corinthian Leather Chrysler commercials right? So let’s go back in time and see if you can pair these slogans to the product.

Automakers spend nearly $15 billion on digital advertising alone. Manufacturer’s are always seeking creative ways to capture the attention their customers shopping for what is likely the second most expensive purchase they will make. Given the competition, slogans and or mottos are critical in delivering a compelling and memorable message. One of the best ads I remember was for Porsche 911:

“It’s about as fast as you can go without having to eat airline food”

I love it! Happy Motoring from G.D. Herring.

Classic Cars – Investment or Collector’s Item?

Once you decide to start your car collection you have a choice to make; are you collecting or are you investing? This is actually a trick question. You can’t invest in classic cars or collectibles. Investing is done for cash flow, and unless you plan to make a business renting out your classic cars (a topic for another book), they are going to cost money to keep up. Collectibles, like cars, Persian rugs, whiskey and wine, paintings, gemstones, gold and classic cars don’t have cash flows in the present or the future.

Have an amazingly great time, while supporting charities (almost $2M raised to date!). From the RNA website: “Routes are chosen that deliver history, scenic beauty, and a driving experience that will prove to be second to none.” This show got us excited to want to participate in the next rally and we think you will too!

Collecting Oriental Rugs – Why?

…An example of this mindset comes from one of my favorite stories illustrating the nature of wealth and how we work in the present to secure the future, both for ourselves and for the next generations. Tony Deden, of Edelweiss Holdings, believes his job as managing family assets means, first and foremost protecting capital. He has a brilliantly illustrative story about meeting a date farmer who inherited an orchard of nearly a thousand trees. As they’re touring the grounds, Mr. Deden sees a hundred new trees that have recently been planted.  He asks the owner how long it will take for the newly planted trees to bear fruit.
