On a “Chilly” Saturday morning, we drove a CX-5 packed full of Mario Kart cutouts onto a frozen lake for the Chilly Open.
The Chilly Open is a half golf, half hockey, and all drinking event that happens every February in Wayzata. Golfers bring their own version of a golf club which can be anything from a hockey stick, to a lacrosse stick, to a Swiffer with the bottom taped down. We sponsored a golf course and were able to design our own Mario Kart themed hole. We had about 1,000 people come out to play our course over the course of the day. When people headed up to our tent to grab a stylish pair of Morrie’s sunglasses, they shared their positive buying experiences at Morrie’s. We never get tired of hearing these awesome stories!
As long as there’s still ice next year, we’ll be out showing off our latest theme, so keep your eyes peeled in 11 months for the next round!
With so much eye candy at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, we couldn’t help but take a peek at all the cool stuff on display from some of the other brands we don’t currently sell at Morrie’s. There’s such a wide range of cars, trucks, SUVs, and just about every other vehicle segment you can imagine on display in the massive McCormick Place convention center that it’s an all-day adventure to see it all. But we did just that, and after a couple of days at the show, we picked up on a few interesting trends:
It’s been awhile since we’ve been to the Chicago Auto Show, but seeing as how it’s the biggest show in our (sort of) backyard, we figured we’d make a road trip out of it and go check out the Windy City for a couple days. Thanks to our friends at Morrie’s Luxury Auto, we had a gassed up 2017 Maserati Ghibli to get us across Wisconsin and to McCormick Place, home of the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. More >
Having a clean car has many advantages – and that’s why here at Morrie’s, we offer lifetime unlimited car washes as one of our Buy Happy Promises. There are many suggestions on how, when, and why you should wash your car…and there isn’t really a correct answer, but rather, a few things to consider:
So… We skipped the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this year. It’s a fun show but it turns Detroit into a complete circus. Hotels are few and far between, flights are expensive, and the weather sucks. So we just said “screw it” and decided to road trip out to Chicago next month for the next big auto show on the calendar. Personally, I’m a little bummed we didn’t go this year. There are a lot of exciting cars that have been unveiled this week that we weren’t there to see, but hey, hindsight is 20/20, right?
So instead of showing you our coverage of the show, we’re going to be borrowing stories from all of our favorite automotive news sites and giving you our thoughts on the coolest unveilings in Motor City this year.
Any Minnesotan worth their salt knows that Murphy’s Law is in full effect during the winter months: anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Frequently, this manifests itself in the form of automotive issues, which can range from something as simple as your car not starting for your evening commute, all the way to hitting a patch of black ice and sliding into the ditch during your evening commute. Both of these things will probably make you late for dinner (Although you have a better chance of avoiding the latter if your vehicle is outfitted with winter tires. Read more on that here).
A surgeon’s scalpel is the perfect tool for performing surgeries but you wouldn’t use it for cutting down a tree or cutting the crust off of your sandwich. Similarly, you wouldn’t use a chainsaw in the operating room. You need the right tools for the job, just like you need the right kind of tires for the season.
It seem like a no-brainer, but the key to any successful endeavor is being prepared. When going out in the winter you should always be prepared for cold, for snow and for ice. If you don’t have a winter car kit assembled you should definitely put one together. This video outlines what should be included in your winter car kit.
Another day in LA, another post full of photos. The big highlight of Day 2 was seeing Subaru pull the wraps off of their new 7-passenger SUV concept. Bigger than anything they’ve ever built before, we’re looking forward to seeing it in production trim next year before it launches in 2018. The rest of the day was spent soaking in some of the details at each booth, as well as trying to capture the scale some of the booths of a big auto show like this.
We’re on the scene in Los Angeles, CA this week during the media days of the LA Auto Show. With so many new reveals and beautiful cars from wall to wall, we figured we should distill things down and bring you the coolest stuff we saw on Day One. Make sure to check back tomorrow to see more, and stop by our Youtube channel for videos of all the important cars from the show as well!
