The Winner's Circle
Well folks, we made it halfway through 2014. The Fourth of July is just around the corner and a small army of longnecks are sweating in anticipation of the event. Anheuser-Busch couldn’t be happier, but what about the wide world of automobiles?
Sales figures are rolling in. The experts and egg heads are busily tabulating the results and word has it we’re on track for sales to reach 17 million, the highest they’ve been since July, 2006. At the time, America’s top two sellers – the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado – were in decline but still leading the industry.
