    Diesel Sprinters in 2013

    Just read an article by the CEO. They are offering a Diesel engine and a new transmission in 2013 models. You probably already know this but thought I would throw it in. On the other hand it will probably cost $80k and parts will be twice as hard to find. That's just a punn from me. LOL!

    Higher Fuel/Slower Freight

    Well I have been going over the books for the last 5 yrs and its official. When the fuel prices hit $3.25 and up the freight gets slower and slower. Plastics are the first thing to slow. I guess that's due to the fact that plastics are tied directly to fuel and chemical costs. Funny thing is...

    Everyone's talking about Bolt. What about this Metro Company?? I was looking over their paperwork and contracts and noticed that Bolt was a reference point. I thought that was unusual. I think most of the companies are trying to run independent contractors and not mess with leasing...
