My wife and I were referred to Samir at HB Jeep through our family.
Between our families we have purchased 3 cars from Samir in the past 2
months and have had nothing but a great experience. Not only was the
process professional and upfront but we were given a great deal and
spent little to no time signing paperwork as all dealings were done
upfront. No last minute suprises and a detailed education on…
My wife and I just purchased a new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited from
Huntington Beach Chrysler Jeep. Our sales guy, Samir Roufaeil, let us
look at every GC on their lot - and believe me, there were plenty.
Since it was dark, he moved about ten cars to bring us the three we
were most interested in so we could see them in the lights and do a test
drive. Once we had settled on…
I just bought my new car at Huntington Beach Chrysler Jeep and it was a
great experience. Alan Goodall was extremely helpful throughout the
process. He was excellent at knowing all the answers to my questions and
furthermore, provided solutions to some of my concerns. Thanks Alan!
Chrysler opened up its usually tightly guarded test facilities west of Detroit on Thursday to show off its entire lineup. Almost most everything new for 2011 and even some freshly minted 2012 wares were on hand for sampling at varying levels of speed.
And since the Chrysler 300 with the much-anticipated new eight-speed transmission is a secret--or at least embargoed--until fall, I decided to start off the day of performance testing off-road. Why not? The entire Jeep line was sitting off to the side, awaiting enticingly for some exercise. And I was happy to oblige.
Just drove our new van home to San Diego from HB Chrysler. We had been looking for months at the local dealers but kept getting the same price offered to us, which we weren't willing to pay (whats up with that San Diego?). On a whim, I checked online within a 200 mile radius and Huntington Beach Chrysler popped up with some crazy good deals. I asked a salesman in San Diego if they could match the prices and they said that there was no way those prices were legit and they didn't want me to drive up to Huntington Beach and "get my feelings hurt". So I called to see how real these deals were and talked to Jason. He was great! Seriously, take it from a mom and someone who has a tendency to have anxiety of big purchases, just ask directly for him because he made it so stress free. Well, should I say, he will for you, I did stress because I was waiting for the deal to fall through or him to change it up on us but really, he was a straight shooter, I should have trusted my gut and not worried... but I did. Jason treated me like a person who had some brains and didn't try to pull any of that stereotypical car salesman stuff with me (for example, not once did he call me "sweetheart", and once I told him exactly what I wanted he didn't push me to get something else). Anyway, he gave me an awesome price over the phone (we are talking A LOT less than San Diego here), and I drove up the next day and did the paperwork at that price, not once did he try to change it.
I've been reflecting a lot on JURASSIC PARK in my head a lot this past week as I've tried to make sense of SUPER 8 in my own head. While a lot of the talk surrounding SUPER 8 and Spielberg naturally turns to CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, E.T. or GOONIES, there's actually quite a bit of JURASSIC in the film. The film's action sequences, well-executed despite the film's other flaws, owe quite a bit to JP in how their lit, staged and shot and it got me thinking about how perfect a piece of blockbuster entertainment…

The year was 1984. The place was Manila, capital of the Philippines. I was there to conduct a formal sit-down interview with President Ferdinand Marcos at Malacaņang palace. It was to be a wide-ranging interview on foreign affairs, political insurgency and democracy in Asia.
The interview was moving along well when the president was interrupted to take an important phone call. At that moment, I happened to look out the window and see the most unusual vehicle parked in the palace driveway. It got my attention not just…
The ultimate daddy, "Big Daddy" Don Garlits, would like to add even more performance and appearance to every dad's car this Father's Day.

If you have been in the off-road marketplace then the name River Raider Off Road may come to mind and this new full service company has come out of that. We recently spoke with Kenny Hauk of Hauk Designs and talked to him about the various models that the company now builds for its customers. He mentioned that the custom designed and fabricated parts that River Raider was building became so popular that his customers were asking to have their Jeeps completely built by the company.
