The Philadelphia Auto Show Begins Tonight with the "Black Tie Tailgate Preview Gala"

The Philadelphia International Auto Show starts tonight with the "Black Tie Tailgate Preview Gala" and continues until February 7 at The Pennsylvania Convention Center (PCC). The Auto Show returns with a 550,000 square-foot display floor showcasing a range of vehicles including pre-production models, concepts, hybrids, exotics and antiques from all around the world. A key feature of this year’s Philadelphia International Auto Show is the expansion of DUB Live! This consists of a 35,000 square-foot display of some of the hottest customized rides and celebrity vehicles sponsored by DUB magazine.

“This is the 108th Philadelphia Auto Show and we are particularly thrilled with the caliber of this year’s event,” said Dominic M. Conicelli, chairman of the 2010 Philadelphia International Auto Show and president of Conicelli Autoplex. “It’s no secret that 2009 was a historic year for the automotive industry, and auto shows across the country were faced with new challenges. However, to our satisfaction and delight, we are ecstatic to deliver another world-class auto show to the city of Philadelphia. Nearly every manufacturer will be back on the display floor and new features will also be present!”

In 2009, nearly 90 percent of attendees in the market for a new vehicle reported that visiting the Auto Show influenced their next purchasing decision, according to conducted surveys. In addition, over the last two decades, the ADAGP has been able to donate more than $4 million to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, thanks to the success of the Auto Show and its affiliated ADAGP activities. For the 2010 event, the ADAGP will proudly continue its tradition of donating one dollar for every Auto Show ticket sold to the Hospital through its Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation.

Joe Blanton Agrees to 3-year Contract with Phillies!!!

Joe Blanton and the Philadelphia Phillies have agreed to a $24 million, three-year contract that avoided a salary arbitration hearing next month.

“We’ve been attempting to upgrade our rotation and we feel like we’ve done that,” Phillies assistant general manager Mike Arbuckle said in a statement. “We think Joe is a very strong, competitive pitcher that has the mental makeup to pitch productively in a pennant race. He pitches a lot of innings and takes some burden off the bullpen.”

The 29-year-old right-hander was 12-8 with a 4.05 ERA last year during the regular season and didn't get a decision in two post-season starts and two relief appearances. After making $5,475,000 last year, he asked for $10.25 million in arbitration and was offered $7.5 million.

"It's one of those deals where it's very bittersweet," Blanton told the San Francisco Chronicle. "I'm going to a very good team with a very good lineup. They're in the division hunt and they're out to win a championship, and that's what any player wants. But I've always been with the A's, and I have great relationships there. It's one of those double-sided coins." says Blanton.

All-Star centre fielder Shane Victorino and catcher Carlos Ruiz remain in arbitration.

Check Out This Amazing Honda Commercial!!!

This WebRidesTV video is a commercial made by Honda to showcase the Honda Accord.  It is a two minute video that shows Honda Accord parts interacting with each other similar to a Rube Goldberg machine.  Your probably wondering if it's real. is!  It took around 600 takes and 2 YEARS to make!  The only CGI in it is when they ran out of space and had to change studios during the exhaust silencer roll. 

I came across this commercial today and had to do something with it.  Hopefully it airs on TV sometime soon!  Comment below and let us know what you think about this commercial!

Hyundai Extends Assurance Program 2010

The Hyundai Assurance program was a huge success in ’09 and won several awards for its marketing efforts. The Assurance Program is a way to get customers in the showroom even if they are afraid of the possibility of their jobs being lost due to bad economic times. It was such a great success last year that they decided that they are going to do it again in 2010.

Hyundai added free roadside assistance and is now offering a fully transferable five year full vehicle warranty and will now offer help to customers who can’t make it back to the dealership. They are still offering the five years free assistance that you would get from AAA including lockout aid, flat tire replacement, towing, jump starts, and bringing you gas if you run out.

Please click here for more info about Hyundai’s extended Assurance Program.
