This past weekend there was a lot of excitement buzzing around here at Morrie’s Brooklyn Park. Why, you ask? Well it’s not everyday we have an NHL player stop by our store.
Minnesota Wild Defenseman, Marco Scandella, gave us a call last week to express his interest in the 2014 GT-R that was on our showroom floor. We were very excited to bring him in for a test drive to check out the vehicle in person.
He arrived on Saturday, smiling ear to ear, and after a short while, decided he was going to go ahead and seal the deal on the GT-R. If you’ve ever seen Marco, you know he’s hard to miss. We even had a few customers in for service that got very excited when they realized who was in the dealership on the same day as they were.
We were thrilled to be able to work with Marco to help him find the vehicle that best fit his needs. Give us a call or visit our website here for more information on our vehicles or to take a test drive today.
Last Friday the Herb Brooks Foundation’s Annual Golf Classic took place at Victory Links Golf Course and we were happy to be in attendance once again. We have had an ongoing partnership with the Herb Brooks Foundation over the past year and it has been our pleasure to support the organization.
Throughout the winter season we supported the Herb Brooks Rink Rat program by providing shuttles and transporting Minneapolis public school students to parks in the area so that they could learn the sport of hockey. We are always looking for ways to give back to our community and our partnership with the Herb Brooks Foundation allows us to do just that.
This was the second year we sponsored the Herb Brooks Golf Open. We had a team of Morrie’s employees that played in the tournament and we also brought a few cars out to the event. Check out our photos and video coverage. We look forward to another successful Golf Classic next summer!
This year we were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at all the latest model debuts during press week at the 113th annual New York Auto Show. The show featured over 1,000 vehicles in a 900,000 square foot arena. From the unveiling of the Subaru WRX concept, to the roll out of 3 new Kia models, none of the brands left us disappointed. We are very excited to share this exclusive coverage with you and give you a little bit of insight into what goes on at one of the Nation’s largest auto shows.
The weather could not have been better for the Z-show held at Morrie’s Brooklyn Park Nissan this past Saturday. The show, put on by the Z Owners Club of Minnesota (Zoom), featured over 25 Z-cars from the 1970′s to present, including 240z’s, 280z’s, 300zx’s and 350z’s. Check out the pictures below to get a glimpse of the event.
It was a beautiful day for Cars & Coffee at the AutoMotorPlex on Saturday! Labor Day weekend brought in a lot of spectators for this months event. Check out some of our pictures below and make sure to join us next month for the last C&C of the season!
For more information about the event head over to the MN C&C website.
Nissan isn’t sure where or when their new electric Leaf Nismo RC will be racing, but we’ve got some very cool video to share.
It’s got a full carbon-fibre monocoque chassis and body panels – measuring a foot lower, 20mm longer, 170mm wider, and 40% lighter than the street car. The Nismo racer also features custom suspension and a fully driver-adjustable rear wing. The drivetrain is almost entirely the same as the street going Leaf - including the 80kw electric motor and 24kWh (that’s kilo-Watt-hour) lithium-ion battery pack. The only major difference is that the electric motor was moved to the middle of the car, and now powers the rear wheels instead of the front. More >
Have you heard of a mashup before? It’s like when DJ Danger Mouse took Jay-Z’s Black Album, overlaid the Beatles White Album and created the Grey Album. Take two things – mash them together, and sometimes magic happens. That’s exactly what Nissan was hoping for when they created this – the 2011 Murano CrossCabriolet. Nissan appears to have taken their Murano and mashed it up with their 370z, and quite possible invented a new segment along the way. More >
