Chevy bringing home hardware, Flint dealership feels auto show buzz

Posted: Updated:

(01/14/14) - The auto show buzz is just beginning, even for folks in Flint.

Chevy is taking home a few major awards, and dealerships are looking forward to a boost to their bottom line as a result.

"Just when it hit the news, it was like a sweep to have the car of the year and the truck of the year," said Jeannine Ferguson, with Applegate Chevrolet.

Chevy's Corvette Stingray won car of the year and the Silverado won truck of the year. That's fantastic news to hometown dealerships.

"Everyone has to be excited about that, especially here in the automotive world in Flint," Ferguson said.

Ferguson said the awards and the show itself will create a buzz around town. She's expecting more people to pop into the showroom after visiting the auto show.

"They pick up their brochures, they do their reading and they want to come in and drive vehicles," she said.

It's something they look forward to every year - for the added customers and the wonderful atmosphere.

"If you've ever been to the auto show, there's a lot going on, there's a circus atmosphere and the cars are all shiny and new and clean there's a lot of info and hands on," Ferguson said.

The auto show opens to the general public this Saturday.
