    A Hot Pokémon Summer

    Fatal Statistics we will soon want to Forget By

    PAM OAKES ASE/EETAS of Car Care for the Clueless/Car Care Advocate


    Pam Oakes is a retired, 20-year owner of nationally awarded shop (Pam’s Motor City Automotive and Tires, Florida), ASE-certified technician, nationally awarded automotive author, international automotive speaker, automotive patent holder and syndicated radio host of “Car Care for the Clueless” Daily Edition, national contract automotive instructor. And, yes, she still “turns wrenches” for fun, nowadays.


    It’s been a summer of finger-pointing politics, wildfires out west, box office crashes and smash-hits…a typical, American summer.

    Something had to give. And, it did: Pokémon Go.

    Just released in the U.S. last week, gamers coast-to-coast are walking around like zombies, watching their phone screens in hopes of catching their next prize with a Pokeball or meeting up at the Pokémon Gym. Missed dates, missed opportunities and missed steps.

    The app tells you to be careful. Look where you are going. But, does anyone really listen? Of course not! Too much fun to be had. And, you remember what “mom” used to tell us: “It’s all fun and games until someone has to go to the emergency room.”

    She’s right. Since the game introduction, last week, there has been an uptick in the number of injuries caused by not paying attention to your surroundings. Tripping over curbs. Falling over objects. One player was so embarrassed by the way he was injured, he lied to the ER staff regarding the circumstances leading up to the fall. Pokémon Go was never mentioned.

    And, you don’t have travel on-foot. Fun can be had while biking or driving. Wait a minute! Driving?

    That’s right. The game is active on your mobile device up to 20 mph.

    So, how many of those new, fender benders this past week were due to either playing the game while driving or rushing to a Pokémon Go event? How many are going to admit that the game was at the root of the traffic incident – if they can help it? That’s easy! Zero!

    “Keep your hands on the wheel, eyes on the road and mind on driving,” is the message that Capt. Jeffrey Bissainthe, of the Florida Highway Patrol, wants to convey to all drivers coast-to-coast. “Along with its public safety partners across our state and nation, (we) are doing everything possible to educate motorists on the dangers of distracted driving.”

    Bissainthe’s message holds even more weight as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released their annual, traffic data report. The numbers are not good.

    According to the NHTSA stats, traffic accident fatalities are up 7.7% from the previous year’s figures. And, injuries – minor to severe -reached more than 400,000. Another disturbing fact within these figures: Pedestrian and bicyclists’ deaths have increased, dramatically.

    So, who’s distracted while driving? The numbers speak for themselves. The National Occupant Protection Use Survey, an agency within the National Center for Health Statistics posts: “At any given daylight moment across America, approximately 660,000 drivers are using cell phones or manipulating electronic devices while driving, a number that has held steady since 2010.”

    That’s a lot of distracted driving going on – before the game was introduced.

    We’re playing the game. We’re distracted. We’re in motion – up to 20 mph – driving down a neighborhood street or parking lot. So, how far can a car (or truck) travel while driving 20 mph? Doesn’t sound like a lot, does it? Let’s do the math.

    It takes approximately four seconds to make a right hand turn. It takes around six seconds to make a left hand turn. So, we’ll split the difference. We’ll take five seconds. Therefore, if you look at your phone for approximately five seconds to check and see the location of the closest Pokémon Gym, while driving – or biking – you will have traveled 105 feet. What does 105 feet look like? Ever glance up to the roof line of a five-story building? Give or take a foot, that’s about 105 feet. Get the picture? Well, if a vehicle or pedestrian crosses your path within that 105 feet – while you are looking down at your smart phone – instant accident, instant statistic.

    If you happened to look up after the five-second, Pokémon check, you travel 45 more feet while comprehending the object in your way. Then, there is another 20 feet of braking action. You added on another 65 feet of distance on top of the 105 traveled. That equates to 170 feet before coming to a dead stop, in an attempt to avoid an object, vehicle, pedestrian or bicyclist. More than half of a football field passed by your windshield and you didn’t even notice. By the way, that’s the distance between the roofline to foundation of a seven-story building.

    And, remember. We’re just going 20 mph in a vehicle - or on a bike.

    At speeds greater than 20 mph, the Pokémon Go app will not track. The 20 mph speed limit was coded into the app. Will Pokémon programmers reset the speed setting – to a lower limit – after the rash of internet incidents that occurred the first week of game play?

    So, we reached out to Pokémon IP-Pokémon Company, owners of the game app, to see if a reduced speed limit was in the works. No far, no comment.

    The other side of the coin? The Pokémon app appears that it’s good for “mom and pop” business.

    Shops are taking advantage of the playtime by introducing gamers to their restaurants and stores. It’s simple and easy to increase traffic to their door. All an owner has to do is place a “lure,” at their business location and Pokémon Go players are drawn to their address to collect different types of Pokémon tokens on their hand-held devices. While participants are at the business, they can either browse, purchase or note the location for future needs. One family pizza business said that after placing a “lure,” the restaurant had their best week – ever. Very smart.

    Uber drivers are getting on the bandwagon, too. There are ads touting Uber transportation, inviting Pokémon Go players to, “leave the driving to us and enjoy the game!” Good idea! Helps the economy. Keeps players and non-participants separated on the roadways.

    What an interesting week it has been for all of us. Only 10 days ago, we were sitting in front of our large screen monitors collecting trinkets and battling foes. Now, the game board has changed, forever. It will be interesting to see with the future holds. Will autonomous vehicles linked to a future, Pokémon Go-type app play along with humans? Will red, blue, yellow cars and trucks “team-up?” Will you be fighting for parking spaces at the gym? I’ll get back to you with those answers – and more! As soon as I figure out where I left my childhood, Magic 8 Ball.

    CADILLAC INTIMATELY LINKED TO LIFE OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY FOR SALE WITH H&H CLASSICS


     CADILLAC


    H&H Classics are selling a 1949 Cadillac that comes freighted with the astonishing Kennedy clan history, a presence at the wedding of JFK and Jackie, at the baptism of their children, his presidential inauguration and at JFK’s funeral following his assassination in 1963, a story that still perplexes and fascinates the world.

    The Cadillac will be sold at H&H Classics Chateau Impney sale on July 10th in the Midlands for an estimated £35,000 to £45,000.

    The car was owned by the Archbishop of Boston, Richard J. Cushing (1895-1970), a close friend of the Kennedys (who were Catholics). He officiated at the marriage of John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953 and he baptised many of the Kennedy children and gave the prayer invocation at JFK's presidential inauguration in 1961. Cushing also led the religious ceremony at President John F. Kennedy’s funeral in 1963. Research indicates that this car would have carried the Cardinal to all these happy and sad Kennedy events.

    Cushing was known for his very liberal views on Catholicism which led him on occasion to openly disagree with the Vatican. He was made a Cardinal in 1958 by Pope John XIII.

    The 1949 Cadillac 75 Fleetwood 5-passenger Sedan has a 160 hp 5.4 litre V8 engine. Only 220 cars of this type were made and this is number 103. It is finished in black with a beige/brown cloth interior with wooden trim, and whitewall tyres and has a 4-speed Hydra-Matic (automatic) gearbox. The car is fitted with electric windows and it still has the original radio. It was one of the last Cadillacs with 'Turret-Top' styling. The car is well restored, is in excellent condition and will turn heads at shows or on the road because of its fascinating history and massive size - 5,7 meter (226 inches) length, 1,83 meter (68,5 inches) height and 2 meter (82 5/16 inches) width.

    This historic car’s second owner was Mrs Jeanne Klonel and her son Mr Ronald S Klonel from Indiana. Around 2000, Ronald Klonel sold the car to a collector from Finland, who in turn sold the car to the present owner in 2004. The Finnish registration document stated that the car was once owned by the archbishop, who led the JFK funeral ceremony.

    There is a copy of a letter from the Cardinal in the car's files, dated 1968, to Mrs Jeanne Klonel, stating: 'I pray that you may enjoy this possession for many more years and that it will carry you safely wherever you go'. He also apologised that it was just a brief letter, because he was still mourning the death of Robert F. Kennedy who had been buried only a few days earlier.

    Martin van der Zeeuw, H&H Classics agent in Holland who found the car, says: “Every now and then one comes across a car that is particularly interesting not just for its engineering or design or any other physical reason but because it casts a light onto our own human history. And this is one such car, its very close links with the remarkable, brilliant, tragic Kennedy family, makes it an object of particular and historic interest.”

    The car comes with a large file of its history including all the work relating to its restoration.

    H&H Classics Ltd:
    H&H was founded by Simon Hope in 1993 as a specialist auction house dedicated solely to the sale of collectors’ motorcars and motorcycles. Some twenty-two years later, the company can boast a continuous trading history which exceeds that of most UK rivals. The company is staffed by hands-on enthusiasts with over 600 years combined experience, and its specialist valuers are among the most knowledgeable in the industry.

    H&H has had the pleasure of handling everything from 1890s London to Brighton runners through to 1990s Formula 1 cars, not to mention a variety of iconic motorcycles and holds a considerable number of World Record auction prices.

    With the head office near Warrington, Cheshire and its Private Sales Garage near Hindhead in Surrey and specialists based throughout the country, H&H holds regular sales at the Imperial War Museum Duxford in Cambridgeshire, Donington Park in Derbyshire and Chateau Impney in the West Midlands.

    H&H Classics Ltd, The Motor House, Lyncastle Road, Appleton, Warrington, WA4 4SN. Company Number: 02852199.

    Self-Driving Car Trouble

    National Automotive Authority and Recall Expert

    Author of Car Care for the Clueless: (...or How To "Make Money" While Maintaining Your Vehicle)

    Pam Oakes


    Self-Driving cars were created to be a useful tool for the drivers of the world, not a detriment to their abilities. One thing that wasn’t taken into account was the estimated 65 percent of U.S. roads that are in poor condition. Shoddy infrastructure has become a roadblock to the development of self-driving cars, vexing engineers and adding time and cost. Poor markings and uneven signage on the 3 million miles of paved roads in the United States are forcing automakers to develop more sophisticated sensors and maps to compensate, industry executives say. Will this solve the problem? Automotive Expert Pam Oakes uses her experience to elaborate on the creation of self-driving cars and the flaws that have arisen in their early stages.

    In Time For Tax Season, Industry Quality Guru J.D. Power Talks About The 2016 Vehicle Dependability Study On “Auto Trends with JeffCars.com” This Saturday


    The latest finding from Experian Automotive revealed that consumers are turning to leasing and used vehicles as a cost-effective alternative to buying new. With the average amount financed for a new vehicle in the fourth quarter of 2015 rising $1,170 to $29,551, when compared to the same period in 2014, and the average monthly new vehicle payment topping off at $493, used cars continue to represent the most economical alternative for car buyers.

    In fact, used cars represented 63 percent of all vehicles financed, during the fourth quarter of 2015. The average amount consumers financed on a used vehicle during this time period was $18,850, bringing the average monthly used car payment to $359, which is $134 less a month than a new vehicle.

    And with this being tax refund season and used cars being the most economical finance option for payment sensitive car buyers, Renee Stephens, J. D. Power’s vice president of U. S. Auto Quality, visits “Auto Trends with JeffCars.com” this Saturday to discuss the latest used car dependability report. The recently released 2016 Dependability Vehicle Study measured the quality responses of 33,560 original owners of 2013 model year vehicles, after three years of ownership.

    During our discussion, Stephens identifies the most and least dependable makes and models from 2013. She also identifies the most bothersome concerns for consumers, as it relates to overall quality. So, whether you’re in the market for a 2013 model or, for that matter, an older model, this show will steer car shoppers down the right road.

    Honoring Black History:

    Join Me Satudays This Month As We Talk One-On-One With A Global Pioneer


    JeffCars.com Is Honoring Black History Month On The Radio

    Global car designer Andre Hudson will join Auto Trends with JeffCars.com this month in the driver's seat for a two-part inspiring conversation. Hudson was the first black car designer to work for the Korean automaker, Hyundai. During his close to 20 years as a car designer, Hudson has had a number of hits along the way. One of his standout designs was the curvaceous 2011 Hyundai Sonata, which really changed consumers perception of the Korean automaker.

    The 2017 Genesis G90, the latest flagship vehicle to jump into the luxury game, was shaped and heavily influenced by Hudson's keen eye for design. Later this summer, the Genesis brand will join the ranks of such prestigious luxury brands as Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar. Tune in for the first of our two part conversation this Saturday with this pioneer as we talk about everything from Hudson's role with the G90 to the courses every school system should offer to what inspired him to become a car designer to the impact of a great car design to what motivates him to how he wants to be remembered by someone who has captured his heart and soul.

    Pick up February's Ebony magazine to view Hudson's latest masterpiece and some of our other highlights rolling into new-car showrooms throughout the year.

    Buying a Car When You Don't Have Perfect Credit

    A good credit score will always help you qualify for the best interest rates when you are car shopping. But, if you don’t have perfect credit, how can you get the best deal possible on your next car purchase?


    Lisa Copeland, a pioneer in the field of automotive management for more than 25 years and Managing Partner of Fiat of Austin, the top Fiat retailer in North America since the brand’s return, says you can have a blemished credit report and still manage to buy a car at the best interest rate and at the best price.

    Copeland offers these tips for buying a car when you don’t have perfect credit:

    - Pre-shop your credit report. There are many free sites for you to use (such as www.annualcreditreport.com) so that you can make sure you walk into a car dealership as knowledgeable and prepared as possible.

    - Check with your local credit union before the car dealership. If your credit score is less than 660, many times the local credit unions have more discretionary power than car dealerships and can overlook minor blips on your credit report.

    - Stay within your budget. Don't let the car dealer talk you into a car that is above the maximum budget you set for yourself as that could be what got you into credit trouble in the first place.

    - Save money for a down payment. 20 percent down is desired by most banks if your credit is below a 620 FICO to receive a fair interest rate.

    - Consider a co-signer. Check with relatives before you go car shopping to see if they would be willing to co-sign with you. That could help your bargaining power.

    - Bring important documents with you to the car dealer. When it is time to discuss financing, the dealership wants to see proof of who you are, that you have a job and that you have a history of making monthly payments on time. Bring the most recent pay stub from your employer, a utility bill (gas, water, power), your driver’s license and at least three personal references.

    - Make timely payments. After you have made 12 consecutive on-time payments, it is possible to refinance your loan and possibly receive a lower rate – which can start you on your way to a better credit history.

    Volvo Cars Netherlands Uses Anachron Corporate E-Invoicing Platform to Digitize Workflows and Improve Financial Reporting

    SaaS Invoice Management Solution Saves Netherland Car Dealers 45,000 Man Hours Each Year


    Amsterdam, December 18, 2014 – Volvo Cars Netherlands has moved 100% of its invoices online, using Anachron’s corporate e-invoicing solution and services to streamline its order-to-cash processes. The company uses Anachron’s innovative technology to process between 135,000 and 150,000 electronic invoices each year, closing the books 1.5 days faster each month, increasing financial transparency and strengthening decision making. “We’re able to report back to Volvo Corporation at a higher, better, and faster level,” says Guus Buring, Finance Administrator, Volvo Cars Netherlands.

    Similarly, Anachron’s technology and digital workflow enable Volvo Car Netherlands’ 115 dealers to reduce accounting work by 30 hours per month, saving approximately 45,000 man hours every year so they can redeploy their staff on higher-level business processes.

    Volvo Car Netherlands previously used print and courier services to deliver invoices to its dealers throughout the country. While car dealers received invoices 24 hours after they were printed, processing, distributing, and paying of invoices taxed internal teams on both sides, creating high staffing and materials costs. “We invested significant man hours and costs in printing and distributing invoices,” says Buring. “We knew we could reduce costs and optimize document flows by adopting Anachron’s electronic invoicing platform.”

    With its white-labeled corporate e-invoicing solution, Volvo Car Netherlands can now provide the company’s dealers with invoices within four hours after they are created. Dealers are alerted via email that the invoices are online and available in both XML and PDF format. Dealers can download XML files directly into their ERP system, acquiring accurate data they can use to report monthly performance back to the corporate office faster, while the PDF versions of invoices are digitally signed to ensure their authenticity. In addition to streamlining processes for both biller and recipient, the corporate e-invoicing platform saves Volvo Cars Netherlands € 4000 annually in materials costs. “Volvo is a leader in sustainability, and electronic invoicing is an important step towards achieving a paperless office and protecting the environment,” says Buring.

    Anachron’s white-labeled platform is integrated into Volvo Cars Netherlands’ technology environment. Anachron has provided business services to map the XML file types to PDFs, while business partner Canon generates the XML and PDF files each month. The XML files are transmitted seamlessly from the company’s global headquarters to the Netherlands operation and its auto dealers, using the company’s IBM AS/400 computing system.

    Volvo Car Netherlands started with 10 different invoice types. The company’s experience with Anachron’s corporate e-invoicing solution has been so successful that the company has extended usage to include additional invoice types, including used cars, BPM, and recap invoices; dealer credits; and bonuses. Anachron also provides archiving services, storing the documents for seven years to meet The Netherlands’ regulatory requirements.

    “Anachron has always been honest and reliable,” says Buring. “They provide a great e-invoicing solution and the staff are easy to work with. As a consequence, we’re evaluating new ways Volvo Cars Netherlands can extend the Anachron platform to digitize additional document flows, gaining speed-to-market and cost advantages in the competitive auto industry.”

    About Anachron
    Anachron e-invoicing solutions enable global and regional companies to accelerate order to cash processes, increase financial transparency, and gain significant cost savings that accrue to both billers and recipients. Leading enterprises use Anachron’s SaaS e-invoicing solutions to streamline critical business processes in complex markets and gain experience they can leverage to digitize other workflows with Anachron e-Document services. Anachron’s electronic invoicing solutions can be delivered as a white-labeled corporate solution or self-service portal. They are paired with print and mail services to provide a complete invoice management solution. The company has been cited by Gartner as a leading e-invoicing pure play provider on three separate occasions. For more information, please visit www.anachron.com.

    JALOPNIK FILM FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES OFFICIAL SELECTION TITLES


     JALOPNIK FILM FESTIVAL
    APEX by J.F. Musial / Tangent Vector


    (New York, NY | October 7, 2014) Jalopnik announced the Official Selection titles that will screen as part of the second annual Jalopnik Film Festival this November. One of the core brands in The Gawker Media Group, Jalopnik is one of the largest car enthusiast publications in the world with over eight million global uniques, covering everything from the latest automotive news to developments in aviation and military technology. This year’s film festival also rolls around at the same time as Jalopnik’s tenth anniversary.

    The Jalopnik Film Festival, with Volvo Cars as its premiere sponsor, will be bigger and better this year. Jalopnik Editor-in-Chief Matt Hardigree says, "This may be the greatest collection of new works about cars and culture ever put together so I think we'll blow a few minds. There's obviously such a strong demand for these kinds of films and last year's festival sold out so quickly, which is why I'm so pleased we're able to offer twice the screenings and at such an incredible venue."

    Some highlights from the Official Selection are:

    AYRTON'S WISH by Tamir Moscivici (Spy Films)

    A short film about the Senna foundation that shows the legacy of the deceased F1 driver's generous contributions to the people of Brazil.

    Hardigree describes AYRTON'S WISH as “a moving short film about Ayrton Senna that shows, in beautiful detail, just how important the F1 driver's legacy was to the children of Brazil."

    This will be the film’s world premiere.

    APEX: THE STORY OF THE HYPERCAR by J.F. Musial (Tangent Vector)

    World premiere sneak preview of APEX: THE STORY OF THE HYPERCAR, the upcoming documentary about the world's most extreme hypercars from Ferrari, Porsche, Pagani, Koenigsegg and more.

    Hardigree says, “J.F. Musial is already one of the most talented directors in the automotive world, as his work with /DRIVE has shown, and we're proud to be the first people to show his magnus opus to the world. After seeing a few of the mind blowing clips I knew we had to have it for the JFF.”

    APEX: THE STORY OF THE HYPERCAR is the first documentary to be shot entirely in Sony 4K high definition. J.F. Musial also has a "Jury Selection" in the festival. Check out the trailer here.

    These films join the already announced jury selections by judges writer/director/producer and investment professional James Glickenhaus, Bloomberg Television anchor Matt Miller, commercial film director Jeff Zwart, filmmaker Tamir Moscovici, writer and television personality Spike Ferensten, and actor Dax Shepard.

    The winners are:

    "Nagoya Streets" by Alexander Rosen
    "One-Take Porsche Pit-Stop - /DRIVE MOMENT" by /DRIVE "
    Regular Car Reviews: 2005 BMW 330Ci" by Regular Cars
    "Turbine Truck vs Turbine Chopper- Bonneville" by Ole Schell
    "Driving this Ferrari GTO is a Certain Kind of Ecstasy" by Petrolicious
    "FY RACING - Oregon Trail Rally 2014" by Alex Tabaczka
    "Where They Raced: Speed Demons in the City of Angels" by Harry Palenberg

    This year's festival will include the short film being produced with Volvo Cars, the seven films above, and the Official Selections.

    On Wednesday, November 5th, the JFF will kick off with a party at the Classic Car Club Manhattan. On November 6th, there will be a party in Williamsburg at Nitehawk Cinema that will include premieres, cars, music, eating, and drinking. Films screened will include IGNITION, presented with Volvo Cars, in addition to the Official Selection and jury selections.

    When’s the best time to buy a car?


    - BY: Pam Oakes, ASE/EETAS
    Author and Radio Host of Car Care for the Clueless -


    There is a secret that car dealers don’t want you to know: there is a time to look and a time to buy. And, the best time to make a deal is always at the end of the month – preferably the last day of the month, in the evening.

    Dealerships base their sales on units and they want to report in every unit they can for each month. That’s why if both you and the salesman are tittering on the fence about how much you want to spend versus how much they want to sell you the vehicle. That process will go a little quicker, more in your favor the last day of the month. And the deals get better yet on the last day of the year. Want a new car? Dec. 31 is your target date for a great deal!

    Let me teach you how not to fix your vehicle in the driveway, but how to have your car or truck properly repaired, by an ASE-certified technician. Car Care for the Clueless.com: making you a savvy car consumer.

    About Pam Oakes:
    Pam Oakes is a shop owner, ASE-certified technician, automotive author, automotive speaker, and syndicated radio host of “Car Care for the Clueless” on CBS Radio The Sky (KJAQ Seattle, WOMC Detroit, WDSY & WZPT Pittsburgh and WMBX Boston), CoachMeRadio, and AOL Radio -- LIVE@5p ET every Friday. And, yes, she still “turns wrenches.”
