ford nashville Q&A Review

What is like to be an Uber driver?

I’ve been driving for Uber in Nashville (the 10th most popular city in the world) for 3 years. Maintain a 4.9 star rating or better, Been named an Uber VIP driver. Been named a Nashville MVP driver and have given 15,600 rides. Drive a 2017 Ford Escape Titanium. External wash daily. Interior cleaned every other day. Detail cleaned once a month. I offer, water, candy, cell phone chargers, daily newspaper to read during the ride, complimentary copy of ,Nashville Scene, magazine. Sirius XM with rider’s choice of 150 channels, a handout of my favorite Nashville restaurants on one side and a list of selected list of Nashville tourist destinations and a red binder that 1. lists the channels; 2. pics and bios of celebrities I have had as riders; (as a sidebar, the most famous celebrities I have had the privilege to have had is Mairead Nesbitt. For those of you are Celtic Woman fans, you know who she is). 3. menus of aforementioned restaurants; 4. descriptions of aforementioned tourist destinations; 5. Wikipedia article on Nashville demographics; 6. Wikipedia article on the Civil War “Battle of Nashville” and 7 the list of all 10 most popular Uber cities. I’m 72 and retired. I put luggage in the car myself. I remove it myself. I operate it as a business and am an LLC. Because of health issues, I have not driven since mid-November of 2018. In less than 12 months, I earned $59,000.00 and, because of LEGAL deductions, I only owned 158.00 in Federal taxes. In my last 3 full weeks of driving I earned; $1,118.00; $1393.00 and 1399.00. I accept all trips. The real fun is that I never know where I’m going next. From Nashville, I’ve been to Shelbyville KY, 3 trips to Bowling Green KY, Huntsville AL; 2 trips to Tullahoma TN, Dixon TN, Bon Aqua TN; Knoxville TN; and my longest trip to Albany GA. Is it worth it. For me? It is definitely worth it.

Did Andrew Jackson own slaves?

Yes. He owned a plantation called The Hermitage near Nashville, Tennessee which he acquired in 1804. He was rarely there until he retired from public life but the plantation did have slaves. There were 9 on the plantation when he bought it and there were 110 in 1845 when he died. Some of the slave quarters from The Hermitage were dismantled and moved to The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI.

Why do some half-black Americans portray themselves as only black and not embracing their other cultural backgrounds?

Let me first begin by stating that I am a woman who was raised primarily in Cullman, AL by my single parent white mother. My father is a black man. I don’t believe that I realized that I was viewed as black until I was a teenager. I was not raised in a black family, but when I moved to Atlanta alone, the black community is the one that accepted me even if they thought I was an odd duck because I behaved like a “white girl” in their eyes. I became proud of my black heritage because it is so rich and full upon discovery. Once I became more well-rounded, I found that in many ways, I felt good about belonging in the black community because I felt safe, accepted, and essentially ,at home. After further travels, I found this to be more and more true. I moved to Pensacola a few years ago. My black female friend and I both felt very unwelcome by the white community in that city. This was especially odd for me because I identify mostly as white because of my mother and how I was raised, even though I know most people see me as black. I couldn’t understand why people in Pensacola generally did not want to look me in the eye. If I walked into a bar alone or with my black friend, people were tense or just ignored us. The vibe was ,off., When I would have my white friends come to meet me, the vibe changed. All of a sudden, I was acceptable. It was the first time I had ever experienced racism as an adult who was aware of what was happening. I became very depressed living in Pensacola. It felt like I needed an escort in order to not feel out of place. In most parts of the U.S., society puts mixed people and black people in a box. It is likely that a person will identify themselves by the community that accepts/embraces them. It’s hard to identify with a community that can’t look you in the eye or looks at you like an object of fascination/curiosity. I moved to Nashville 1.5 years ago. While it is still mostly white here, I feel like the white people here don’t really even notice color sometimes. I feel confident and accepted again. I really don’t identify as one thing in particular because I haven’t had the experience of what it is like to live as a white woman. I also have not had the full experience of what it is to be black, although that is most like my own experience. I’m not ashamed of either race. It has been the role of society to label me as a black woman. It feels like a constant struggle. Nashville has been a breath of fresh air for this reason due to the freedom of expression and individuality.

Have you ever taken your car to a mechanic thinking it would be an arm and a leg and it was a simple cheap fix making your day?

I was the mechanic for this just last night. One of my son’s friends brought her car over because it was vibrating and making an awful racket at any speed above 40 miles per hour. She’d already spent $400 on new tires in an attempt to fix it, but it was still making the noise. I hacked it to make it drivable with $0.25 worth of zip ties. Their plastic inner fender was damaged and the force of the wind was blowing it into the tire at speed. She was ecstatic. Zip Ties aren’t a proper repair, and I strongly suggested they replace the inner fender. It’s only $28 from RockAuto, and that’s cheap enough to make it worth doing right. I hope they take me up on it. I have another one. A friend called me in the middle of the night in tears. She’d hit a deer and her Ford Minivan wouldn’t start. I had her push the little fuel pump impact shutoff reset, but it still wouldn’t start. She said she was getting it towed to the dealership and needed a ride home. I met her at the dealership just as the sun was peeking over the horizon, changed the fuse for the fuel pump, and she drove it home. I have never understood why Fords pop the fuel pump fuse in a collision. I wish I’d remembered that before I drove all the way from Nashville to Kentucky.

How come Steven Spielberg has won only two Oscars while other, far less famous directors have won more than two?

Only three directors have won more Best Director Oscars than Steven Spielberg. John Ford has won four (for ,The Quiet Man, How Green Was My Valley, The Grapes of Wrath,, and ,The Informer,) while two others have one three: Frank Capra (,It Happened One Night, Mr. Deeds Goes To Town, You Can’t Take It With You,), and William Wyler (,Mrs. Miniver, The Best Years of Their Lives, Ben-Hur,). These are all very famous and respected directors. It’s tough for even talented filmmakers to win multiple Oscars because each time they are nominated, they are in competition with four other talented filmmakers. Spielberg was nominated for ,Close Encounters of the Third Kind,, but lost to Woody Allen for ,Annie Hall,. He was nominated for ,Raiders of the Lost Ark,, but lost to Warren Beatty for ,Reds,. He was nominated for ,E.T. The Extraterrestrial,, but lost to Richard Attenborough for ,Gandhi,. He was nominated for ,Munich,, but lost to Ang Lee to ,Brokeback Mountain,. He was nominated for ,Lincoln,, but lost again to Ang Lee for ,Life of Pi,. It’s clear that the Academy respects Spielberg, because they keep nominating him, but a problem is that the type of films he made earlier in his career were not the historical drama or social message films that the Academy voters prefer. In my opinion, the only real crime is that Spielberg wasn’t nominated for ,Jaws,, but even then, the nominees that year were impressive: Milos Forman for ,One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest,, Robert Altman for ,Nashville,, Federico Fellini for ,Amacord,, Stanley Kubrick for ,Barry Lyndon,, and Sidney Lumet for ,Dog Day Afternoon,. I’m not sure who I would have dropped to give Spielberg his chance for the Oscar that year.

Can moving from a higher altitude to a lower altitude (Denver to Nashville area), have an impact on vehicle performance? Both vehicles, (2017 Ford F-150 & 2017Jeep Cherokee) seem to be riding rougher, we’re not seeing any other problems - ideas?

Both of these vehicles use electronic fuel injection. Any change in performance due to altitude should have been corrected by the ECM. And going from mile high Denver to much lower Nashville should have only been a blip as the density of the air went higher. The system I work on, H-D/Delphi, clearly states that any major change MAY take as many as 100 miles to basically reset to the major changes. But other wise you should be able to drive/ride from sea level to the top of Pike’s Peak without noticing any change in performance. So continuing running problems may be a sign of problems within the system itself.

Why was Robert Altman not as celebrated as Francis Ford Coppola or Martin Scorsese?

There was a time when Altman was MORE celebrated than both the other guys combined. During the early-to-mid 1970s, Altman had a string of hits with ,M*A*S*H,, ,McCabe & Mrs. Miller,, and ,Nashville ,and widely-discussed critical favorites with ,The Long Goodbye,, ,California Split,, and ,3 Women,. He was the pride of Pauline Kael, arguably the most influential movie critic who has ever lived, because he embodied what she called ,moviemaking fever,. Scorsese and Coppola, on the other hand, had warm-up periods. They weren’t as massively successful or popular as Altman was in the beginning. But once they got going, ,Taxi Driver,, ,The Godfather,, ,Apocalypse Now,, and ,Goodfellas, captured the public imagination in ways few Altman movies ever did. That said, Altman is still regarded as equally influential by many.

What's your craziest experience while buying a car?

This was crazy. It’s about one of these. In ~2003, North Central Ford of Richardson Texas agreed to sell me the lst 2004 Ford GT that they got, at MSRP. That was going to be ~$150K. At first, I had to explain to the Sales Manager what it was, show him the first picture of it that he’d seen, and a picture of the Prototype at Pebble Beach in 2002. He said he figured I was a legit buyer because I went there in my BMW Z8, a comparably priced limited production car, that he did actually recognize. On my 2nd visit, I got the Sales Manager to sign a 1-page (3–4 sentence) agreement letter. Afterwards, I dropped in the dealership to see him about every 90 days to follow up on the car’s highly anticipated delivery, and to remind them of our agreement, which he always acknowledged verbally. On two such visits, I brought along a car-guy buddy as “witness” to our agreement. Some of these meetings were simply quick meet & greets in the hallways where the terms of my deal were discussed briefly. In late ‘04, when I became aware that the 1st cars were being shipped and in transit, I went by the dealership again, for about the 5th time, but I was told that the former Sales Manager no longer worked there, so I asked to see the new Sales Manager, and someone took me upstairs to his office. I made the new Sales manager aware of the details of the deal I’d made with the dealership before he worked there, and he said “well, that’s bullshit. There is no way we’re gonna do that. That car is all over the press. We are going to sell that car on EBay Motors for $300K.” I re-iterated that we had an agreement in writing signed by his predecessor, and, at his request, showed him a copy. He read it and said “Well, the agreement says what you said it does, but we ain’t going to do that.” I said “Well, you leave me no choice but to pursue this by other means.” and he said “Good luck!”. As I turned to walk out of his office, I turned back briefly and said “I assure you, luck won’t have anything to do with it.” (I couldn’t resist) I found a young freshly-minted SMU JD-grad lawyer, and when the car showed up 2 days later, my lawyer filed a lawsuit and got a judge to put a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) on the car. It prohibited the dealership from offering it for sale, removing any of the shipment protection materials, dis-allowing anyone (including their employees) from driving it, until further notice. Even the mechanics in the service department couldn’t put a wrench on it. I went up there, and went to the service department where the Service Manager let me come in their shop in the back and look, but not touch. This was the 1st or 2nd Ford GT delivered in the DFW metroplex. This was a big deal. There was a story on the cover of the Dallas Morning News business section. There were dozens of people back there in a service bay, ohh-ing and awe-ing, including a a new car salesman that didn’t know me. I told him I was ready to pay cash at MSRP, but he said that “the car has a little legal cloud hanging over it” but as soon as that was cleared up, he could sell it to me for $240K, and wrote that number on the back of his business card without even writing down my name. The car had the TRO court order taped to the driver-side door glass. The judge in this case made us go to mediation before it could go to trial, and so me and my young lawyer met with the recommended licensed mediator (a former Dallas judge) and the dealership brought in 2 suits from the headquarters that owns the dealership - Sonic Automotive of Nashville, TN (same guys that own the Texas Motor Speedway Indy/NASCAR track in Fort Worth), not to mention owning about 200 other car dealerships. They claimed to be representing the 2nd biggest car dealership company in the nation, after Auto Nation. After polite introductions in the main conference room, the parties were situated in separate conference rooms, and the mediator started playing shuttle diplomacy, going back and forth between us, giving the other party’s argument and pushing for a settlement. As one point she told me and my lawyer that they knew I had high-end cars, and at trial they would show that I was an “opportunist, not a genuine Ford product buyer, and and they would characterize me as just an exotic car flipper hoping to profit unfairly”. I told the mediator to tell them that my rebuttal in court would be: “I have an 11 year old Jeep, a 6 year old BMW, a 4 year old BMW and a Yukon Denali. Furthermore, I haven’t sold but one car in the last 5 years. But at trial, and I will insist on a jury, I will characterize them as … car dealers … and as redundant as it may sound, dishonest ones at that. And I will make it stick.” Suddenly it became a price discussion. I agreed unilaterally to add $10K (good faith, for a total of $160K), but they insisted on the $300K number. Then, I let them know that they had quoted $240K to me, and I could prove it. We went back and forth on whether or not that was a bone fide offer, and I then provided more information - that $240K was also what they quoted a friend of mine who went by to look like I did but later in the day. He would be called by me as a witness. They caved, and agreed that $240K was their “best & final” asking price. But I rejected the new offer. I wasn’t done with them yet. After a few back and forth rounds about how rock-solid my MSRP deal was, they offered a cash settlement of $20K for me to just abandon my lawsuit and walk away. I said “Tell them no, and that if I see them again, it will be in a downtown Dallas County courtroom”. The mediator tried to talk me out of taking such a hard stand, but carried the message to them anyway. She came back in about 10 minutes and asked if we could agree on a cash settlement somewhere in the middle, and I said yes, of course, but it would have to be smack dab in the middle between my best offer of $160K and their best asking price of $240K. In other words, we were $80K apart, and if they want to write a check for $40K, I’ll go away and abandon my claims to the car. Otherwise, I’d pursue my rights to buy the car for the $150K list price in my 1-page agreement. The mediator came back and said we had a deal, and we signed a settlement agreement that they were able to prepare quite quickly. And two hot-shot Nashville lawyers went home with their tails between their legs, probably more concerned about catching their flight. Three days later, I got a $40K check, and paid my lawyer $6K for about an hour of prep and 2 hours of an arbitration meeting that had left his head spinning. And literally the next day, Ford recalled all the Ford GTs nation-wide due to upper-A-arm cracks, so the initial Ford GT owners had to put their brand-new cars back in the shop and wait about 6 months to get them retrofit with yet-to-be-designed beefier A-arms. That was the best car deal I ever did. No tax, no title, no license, no insurance, no gas and a nice financial result for me (and my new lawyer buddy). I bought a 1/18 scale model Ford GT that’s on my trophy shelf, with the Sales Manager’s business card tucked under its tiny little windshield wipers. Is that crazy enough?
