The panel bigger family is that you get to go a few times. Yes and just a reminder where you guys are located so that it they can take advantage of all these things that we mentioned so far yeah like to think we're right in the middle of big resurgence ran Niagara street thirteen 79 nagger street in buffalo.

Yeah and you can get a lot done when you're down their 290 shopping for cars which you guys use a little bit a service for the cars that you self doubt we service shall we sell we normally don't do too much outside work we want to maintain. The customers that we sell to Leo we service what are we sell. Imports domestics Leo we do offer. You know some of our cars come with some good warranties extend warranties that we'd love to do the service work for. Talked an owner Marty Becker our senior with the riverfront auto sales as we just mentioned thirteen 79 nagger street very close to downtown buffalo might as a college downtown buffalo they're better fact. And you mentioned Dow. The warranty the without worry warranty still something you guys are. Yeah acting yeah we have some really awesome warranties we have some warranties with no miles imitation no year note time limitations you could get a warranty that will cover you for as long the only card doesn't matter how many miles around it. And doesn't matter how long you. Keep it for so it's it's a good piece of mines besieged by parent wants to buy a car for their kid that's the border school out of town. Because they're good all over the country don't have to bring it to us for. For the warranty work these warranties that we offer our good anywhere in the country so if the kids away at college. The parent has a good peace of mind if something happens they can bring it to the local shop in in and get repaired. Another item to throw out there let's talk a little bit about your concierge service for anyone simply looking to find that specific field vehicle purchase. Yeah they say touch a little bit on the at this at OVE my son has a you know it's it's it's a form of off of a new car store search for use colors. On not a lot of not every car dealer to get an you have to meet some serious criteria you have to maintain a good rating. To get it but you know we could locate almost anything now we've found tractors we found you know more homes more bolts. And I think that's more or. The local. Related we we can probably find it. And you mentioned this at the time of the year when people are looking for something they can put the top down on perhaps. But is is there such a thing is a difference between like two door Ford or anybody anything special like that client out. Well it seems we had a pretty good run the last few weeks on most of our convertibles and I bought most of those during the wintertime down in Florida so we had a pretty good Ron we had a good supply we've only got a limited supply left. But we saw quite a few corvettes quite a few convertibles so. That seems to be and we actually had a real good year this year with their classic cars we sold quite a few of those. This year which was kind of surprising but yeah it's simply can't markets get stronger to. C gonna have to sort of time the market as it were to figure out oh yeah it's time don't start ordering these things but a couple months at a time so. What another couple months it's time to stock doubled on suvs and things like that for wintertime. I hate to even say it but I have already that's where I've been its way into I've already. That's the market I'm looking at because right now the bulls were the deals are so I'm buying you know four by fours pick ups right now the very soft. But I know com September October there's going to be quite a demand for so yeah unfortunately I'm not look him. My supply convertible sports cars were bought in November December January so now were. Hold in his now on the four by fours and suvs and we mentioned a little bit before about the work that you do how many people you have a mechanics did that do that end of it. Well we have three technicians three technicians that work hour on smaller cars will that we get ready before we put him up for sale obviously. After the sale so yeah we. We'd like to have people on the call we wanted to on the have a two week wait so we tried it to me he needs service we try to get amendment dated the very next day. So it's important Austin I know. You know when I want something done I don't want it done two weeks from now I want it done yesterday so we try to do try to give our Christmas answers is that a new technical term technicians and mechanics like as opposed to DJ is now we're announcers yeah I guess you could say that I mean it's. You know they've really come along way against same thing at that is if you don't know which are doing these cars nowadays. As the backyard mechanics are a thing of the past you really need to know with all the computers in the check engine all the monitors that are in these cars. It's just a test even give the passes the New York State inspection now. So again with things says so tight difficult for you as you mentioned earlier on about getting specific cars now. Anything that you wanted to throw out their for people as ours is so when they're coming looking for something at riverfront not a sales of the to stop her web don't go on the net.

Or you know we love this have to stop down even just say hello we love the meat they'll meet our customers but yet we encourage you to. If you're thinking about sonic power or trade account before you treated and give us a chance as you might be surprised how much we can do before. Animated ups in the whole family there because of course you've got to generations working at the place are about to marketplace jail while my sauce there every day they'll bell the bell on their every day except to lose their money off summon an auction but. And my grandson now that schools all over he'll be there washing cars and we'll have them you know do what you did Lester started you know washing cars helped them open arranged things from a lot. Yep and yet we mentioned this a bunch of times before when you've been on that that's pretty much you got your start to decide to figure out cars in Washington as well absolutely it started to bail. On the ground you know washing cars and worked my way up to you know Ryan today and I'm pretty champion love what I do it wouldn't change a thing. If you're accustomed to long enough you can have bought a car from all three generations Julia you have sold cars in many fifth. Families and then their kids come and I sought that are kids than their kids come in so it's like yeah it's.
