ford olympia Q&A Review

What has been the most honest moment you’ve had with a salesperson?

In 1992, I was working as a Clown all around Seattle, and living in Tacoma, and going to school in Olympia. Needless to say, I was putting A LOT of miles on my car. It died. I had a rental, and on my way home from work one Saturday afternoon, on an impulse I pulled into a Ford Dealership. I knew I had credit issues, no real job (self-employed Children’s Entertainer) so when the sales person approached me and asked if he could help me - I said no. I flatly described my situation - including a repo when I was married - and told him to not waste time on me. He was surprised by my honesty and that I wasn’t trying to waste his time. He made me promise not to leave - he thought he might be able to help me out. He went to talk to his manager, then came out and said “I think I may have a car for you.” Took me into his office to fill out some papers, then sent me away. (I lived almost an hour south of the dealership.) He told me to call in 2 hours, and he’d have an answer. When I called, he told me to come in - that they had a car. My Father drove me back up and I went in and signed all the final papers for much less than I expected. It was for an 8 year old car, so I expected a lemon, but I needed a car. Then he handed me keys and said “It’s the blue car parked outside.” HOLY CRAP! There was a NEW looking Ford Escort. Yes it was 8 years old, but had less than 8,000 miles. A couple had bought it as a commuter car, then ended up working for the same company so it had stayed parked in the garage while they rode in their other car. They finally decided to get a jeep or something for leisure time, and turned it in. It was a total cream puff - nice stereo, good Heater and even an AC (not standard in Washington State at that time.) I was shocked. He told me my honest attitude had been such a breath of fresh air after several unpleasant experiences that day, and he and his manager agreed to “give me” that car. His manager and he even had a bet as to whether I would insist on seeing the car before buying it! (He won … since I had just trusted him to do right by me, and signed the papers!) That was one of the best cars I ever had, and truly the best experience I’ve had with ANY sales person!

What is your favorite Detroit memory?

so many, street cars, meeting under the big clock by Hudsons after seeing the model train displays at Christmas, the ford rotunda, seeing the Edmund Fitzgerald launched, the big natural gas tanks next to the ambassador bridge, the railroad roundhouse on the other side of the bridge, going through the tunnel to Windsor, Hines park, seeing the tigers at tiger stadium, the train station, Greenfield village and the Henry ford museum, Stroh’s beer, the Olympia, the grande ballroom, the eastown and the cinderella, the Cadillac clark street plant and the Fleetwood plant, people getting along with one another and the general good feeling all around….

What is a good Greek restaurant in Orlando?

Mediterranean Blue on E. Michigan for sure. Others are Theo's Kitchen on Curry Ford Road and I believe the Olympia is good too I have heard but I have only visited the first two.

Was Detroit considered an ugly city when the economy was booming?

I like to compare Detroit with Rome. Both cities hit a peak, then went into decline. I’ve been to Detroit several times since the 1980s, and many of its landmarks still existed back then. Even though they were abandoned, they were still awe inspiring I was driving down one of the major avenues when suddenly I saw a massive red brick building. It turned out to be the Detroit Olympia, which had been abandoned at that point. It has since been demolished But look at it in is prime Now, I live within walking distance from Maple Leaf Gardens, and the Olympia looked large even compared to MLG. And Hudson’s Department Store dominated downtown, even after it too was abandoned for suburban malls At one point, it was the second largest department store in the world, after Macy’s. It also wasn’t the only large department store in Detroit. It too has been demolished. But not everything from the glory days is gone. The Michigan Central Station still exists But it was abandoned too, like many other large train stations in the United States. It’s currently undergoing a massive renovation. But Detroit still has loads of buildings from its glory days, like the Detroit Institute of Arts, which dates back to the late 19th century and is the oldest municipal museum in the United States It also has beautiful new facilities. The Detroit Lions used to play in suburban Pontiac, but now play in the innovative covered stadium Ford Field, which has already hosted a Super Bowl. And despite its decline, it has a collection of Art Deco buildings second only to New York City

How do American football players like Chris Johnson, Dri Archer and Jacoby Ford run so fast?

The thing that Chris Johnson, Dri Archer and Jacoby Ford all have in common is that they were elite prep track stars from Florida who specialized in the 100 and 200 meter sprints. Chris Johnson, ran a 10.3 in the 100m while at Olympia High School in Orlando, FL. At the 2004 state championship, he was runner up in the 100 and 200 behind future 2-time Olympic bronze medalist Walter Dix. He anchored the 400m relay team, which won the state title. Dri Archer, went to Venice High School in Venice, FL, where he was teammates with future NFL player Trey Burton. Archer was a track standout with a 10.4 in the 100m. He finished second in the 2008 state championships behind future sub-10 second All American sprinter Dentarius Locke. Jacoby Ford, was the 2005 100m state champion at Newman High School in West Palm Beach, FL, with a personal best of 10.3. Unlike Chris Johnson and Dri Archer, Jacoby Ford also ran track at Clemson University while playing football. As a five time All American, he was arguably a better track athlete than football player. Though an adequate 100/200 runner, his specialty was the 60m run, an indoor event. He was the 2009 NCAA 60m champion with a time of 6.52; his time was just one hundredth of a second shy of the NCAA championship record held by 3-time Olympic silver medalist Richard Thompson of Trinidad and Tobago (and formerly LSU). Jacoby Ford (center) races against future NFL speedster Trindon Holliday of LSU and Teddy Williams of UTSA at the 2009 NCAA Indoor Championship. (Photo: NCAA Photos) The track connection is important to note because these guys have superb sprint technique, which makes them efficient runners on the track and on the football field. Natural speed and power only goes so far. In order to cross into the level of sub-4.4 second times in the 40 (much like sub 10.5 second 100m times), an athlete needs to have great running form and quickness. In the particular cases of the Chris Johnson, Dri Archer and Jacoby Ford, they each had something else going in their favor Chris Johnson The main thing to notice about Chris Johnson’s 4.24s 40 time – tied as the fastest 40-yard dash ever recorded – is his 10-y split (how fast he ran for the first ten yards). ,His 10-y split is a mind-boggling 1.40,. This is the fastest 10-y split I have ever seen among NFL players: it’s definitely the fastest among all football players who have run 4.30s and under in the 40. The only player who has come close was Dominique Rodgers Cromartie, who has a 1.41 10-y split (and a 4.29s 40 time). The 10y-split is significant because it gives a good indication of an athlete's initial burst of speed. Chris Johnson’s split time suggests that he has a blistering fast reaction time and he very fast first steps. As a running back, this means that he can hit the hole so fast that defenses will have a very difficult time spotting him. Chris Johnson running the 40 at the 2008 NFL Combine. (Photo: Sports Illustrated) Dri Archer The notable thing about Dri Archer’s 4.26s 40-yard dash was that ,he reportedly only needed 18 steps to complete the race,. This tied him with Calvin Johnson with the fewest number of steps ever recorded during a 40. Mind you, Dri Archer stands 5’ 8” tall, whereas Calvin Johnson is 6’ 5” -- a nine-inch difference in height. Thus unlike most shorter runners, who tend to be fast because of short, quick strides, Dri Archer has a long, loping stride that helps give him separation from opponents. Dri Archer running the 40 at the 2014 NFL Combine. (Photo: ,DraftManiacs.com,) Jacoby Ford In Ford’s case, what helped with his great 40 time was that ,he already specialized in running the 60m race., Unlike the 100m sprint, where one can run a fast time despite a slow start or late top-end speed, success in the 60 requires a fast start and very rapid acceleration, just like the 40. It's worth mentioning that his 3-cone drill (4.44) and 20-yd shuttle (7.00) times were unimpressive, suggesting that he is much more of a straight-ahead runner rather than an agile ball-carrier who can change directions with ease. This is consistent with how he was used by the Raiders, as most of his damage was as a return man rather than as a receiver. Jacoby Ford running the 40 at the 2010 NFL combine. (Photo: O,veroll.com,) Summary That these three athletes happen to be from Florida is admittedly somewhat irrelevant. Speed can come from anywhere. However, their track backgrounds are quite relevant. Each one of these athletes has explosive speed and great technique, along with their own special skills sets. These are the reasons why they ran fast 40 times.

Which is the one thing in which Tamil Nadu is better than all the states?

I answer this question primarily based on my minute observations, close interactions with people and my 8-year long and hassle free stay in the state, especially in the magnificent cities of Chennai and Coimbatore. Tamil Nadu is currently the most developed state in India. It has been one of the fastest growing states in the country for the past 3 decades. Several external and intrinsic factors may have influenced the overall growth of the state over a period of time but one particular aspect which sets the state apart from most other states in India is the ,strong sense of individuality among its masses,, off course a state or a country is as good as its people. It is particularly because of this trait that they have always been able to maintain a very fine balance between upholding their cultural and linguistic legacy and modernizing their infrastructure for promoting industrial and technological growth. I personally determine the development for any region based on several factors , the important ones being ,its ability to create jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities for its native people and others in all sectors,, ,quality of elementary and higher education,, ,healthcare services, security, GDP and HDI. ,Tamil Nadu leads in all of these aspects. Let me describe the reasons briefly one-by-one:- Jobs and Business Opportunities:- ,The industrial growth of the state can be attributed to the great politicians supported by their followers who not only created an investment friendly atmosphere within the state but also made it the hub of largest automobile, manufacturing, garments and IT industries. Some of the primary automobile manufacturing units based out of Chennai and Coimbatore are Ashok Leyland, BMW, Caterpillar, Ford, Bosch etc. Tirupur houses the garment and textile industries providing employment to millions of people and hence exporting products worth $3 billion. Chennai is also the third largest IT hub in India and it has some of the largest IT parks such as Siruseri, Tidal Park, MEPZ, DLF, Olympia, etc, making it the second largest IT and BPO services exporter in terms of revenue. All these industries offer employment to lakhs of graduates every year. The sea port is another added advantage it has which aids in the import-export of goods across the world Infrastructure:- ,Tamil Nadu certainly has the best network of roads in the entire country which facilitates easy movement of people from all over the state and rest of the country. It not just helps the people but more importantly it helps the industries to flourish and invest more. From metropolis to remote villages, all places have excellent connectivity via road, railways and air. The city of Chennai has abundant options to commute to all its corners by Buses, suburban railways, Metro and other modes of public transport. The CMBT bus stand in Chennai is the largest bus stand in Asia with a capacity to handle over 1 million passengers a day. Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals:- ,The presence of renowned hospitals such as Apollo, Vellore and other government and private run hospitals make Tamil Nadu the Health capital of India. Patients come here to undergo some of the most life-threatening illness not just from within the country but from other parts of the world too. Education:- ,Excellent education facilities in the state has produced some of the brightest brains currently holding topmost positions worldwide in every field. The education facilities there encourage students to pursue and excel in any field of their choice irrespective of their past academic achievements. It has close to 560 government and private engineering colleges, the best ones Anna University, Madras Institute of technology, SSN, etc. Besides that, the colleges for other fields such as arts and science, commerce, etc are in plenty. Security:- ,The crime rate in the state is minimal which makes it the safest for people especially women to travel around. Tourism:- ,For the past several years, Tamil Nadu has been the most sought after destination for both domestic and international tourists. From beautiful lush green landscapes in the Nilgiris to the beaches at the east coast it has a lot of places for tourists to visit every year. The amazing architectures of temples and other places of religious importance attracts a lot of visitors to the state throughout the year because of which the state ranks first in India in terms of Tourism. Besides these there are countless number of other factors because of which Tamil Nadu stands out such as low-urban rural disparity, good electrification in remote areas, good sanitation, etc which makes over 50% of the state urbanized. Presence of Tier 2 cities such as Coimbatore, Trichy, Madurai, Salem makes the overall development of the state equitable and reduces the dependency on Chennai to generate revenue. The prime factor that all of these can be credited to is the people there who are very industrious themselves and who cooperate with the government in promoting all the good schemes for progress and growth. They have a deep sense of identity replete with values which help them grow. I am sure the journey of growth will continue for decades in the future because peace and prosperity always go hand in hand.

Would you rather have Ronnie Coleman or Jay Cutler as your personal Mr. Olympia?

Personal Olympia as in personal trainer/mentor type of person? Both are obviously very knowledgeable at bodybuilding but I would have to side with Jay since he is more extroverted and I think he's more sociable. Don't get me wrong, I think Ronnie is awesome too but Jay has a successful clothing line, and supplement company that I can converse with him about and learn.

What were some famous companies that collaborated with the Nazis during WW2?

I do not want to give any excuses for any German company which cooperated with the Nazi regime. On the other hand it seems quite obvious that - at least after 1939 - the German economy was entirely shifted towards war production. So it is no surprise that almost every large company in the 3rd Reich delivered something for the war. This had three reasons: It was a promising business Those companies which refused to cooperate were facing massive difficulties which reached from being cut off from raw materials supply to the management being put out of power and replaced by Nazi personnel. Companies which were rated “important for war” often had the chance to keep specialists in their company - or keep slave workers in their company and not have them sent to much worse places. May be you have seen the movie “Schindler’s List”. It tells the story of Oskar Schindler, who owns a factory for metal goods. Schindler succeds in gathering many Jewish KZ prisoners as workers in his factory by pretending to the Nazis that his production is important for their war efforts. It seems to be very important also to look at companies from outsides Germany, so I’d like to make some remarks about companies from the U.S. General Motors had aquired the German car maker Opel in 1929. Opel was a famous car brand in Europe (they still are), and they developed their cars on their own. After the acquisition in 1929 GM had some influence on Opel, but they basically stayed independent. In the late 30’s the Nazis started a central product planning in the automotive sector. It was orded that certain car and motorbike models were standard for a certain weight or performance class. The Opel Blitz was developed by Opel, not by GM, and it was determined as the standard middle class truck. The Nazis encouraged Opel to build an own factory for the Blitz 3.6. After the begin of the war, Mercedes-Benz began to build the Blitz 3.6 as a licensed product. Production of that truck was also planned in the Borgward plant in Bremen, but it was destroyed by allied bombers. The GM/Opel management showed refusal against building vehicles for the Wehrmacht, so the Nazis put a threat on them that their German operations could be confiscated as “enemy’s posession”, so they cooperated. After the war, Soviet troops tore apart the Opel factory in Eisenach, where the first car with a self supporting steel body was made, the Opel Olympia (launched right for the 1936 Summer Olympic games). The whole production facility was brought to russia and built up again. After the war, the USSR launched the Mosqvich, a 1936 Opel with a new badge on the fromt grille. Ford was in a similar situation as Opel. But one should mention that Henry Ford was a fanatic anti-semite, who also published articles and books which were weird to say the least. Hitler and his main car-man Ferdinand Porsche admired Ford for the invention of the assembly line. Porsche stayed quite a while in the Ford company to study the secrets of car mass production. Ford started an assembly facility in Berlin in 1925 in order to avoid the massive tolls on imported cars. In 1929 they moved to Cologne, in 1931 they started their production - just to shut it down just a few weeks later due to the world economic crisis. When the Nazis came into power in 1933, Ford had just begun to make cars. Soon there was a law thar only German cars were allowed to be sold in Germany. Ford changed the names of their cars to German. Later the Ford logo was banned in Germany. The German Ford operations were lead by the Nazis. Later Ford claimed that it lost control over their German operations. In fact, more than 50% of the German Ford shares were held by Germans. After the war Ford briefly considered shutting down their German operation forever. During WW II Germany occupied many of its neighbour countries - and started to integrate their industry into German war machinery at once. This happened to Tatra and Skoda in Czech, to Steyr, Puch and Austro-Daimler in Austria as well as to Renault in France. After the war Renault founder Louis Renault was prosecuted for collaboration with the enemy, and Renault was confiscated and taken over by the government. Two other companies should not be forgotten: Oerlikon (Switzerland) and Bofors (Sweden). They were into the production of heavy machine cannons and anti aircraft cannons. Both companies took investments from German companies before the Nazi aera, and they were selling heavy weapons in large quantities to almost anyone who wanted them. When two ships shot at each other during war time and unsed their machine cannons for that, chances were given, that both cannons were made by Oerlikon. Both companies exist until today, and they still sell heavy weapons all over the world. It is known today, that almost all important Swiss banks of the 30’s and 40’s helped the Nazis in parking and investing money they had stolen during their raids.

Why are people so crazy about Arnold Schwarzenegger? What works make him popular?

When Arnie was a young man growing up in Austria, he fell in love with America, the greatest country in the world in his view, and he made a modest plan for his life. First he was going to travel to America and become the greatest bodybuilder ever. Then he would become the greatest movie star ever. Then he’d make millions in business. Then, finally, he’d become the President of the United States of America. So then he actually travelled to America and indeed became the greatest bodybuilder ever, winning seven Mr Olympia titles. He could have won several more if he hadn't left for business and movies. He's still the greatest bodybuilder there has ever been. He went on to make millions in business, especially real estate, and became, if not the most skilled actor, at least one of the biggest movie stars there has ever been. After achieving those summits, he moved to his final goal. There is absolutely no doubt that he would have become President - look at how much Americans love voting for movie stars and reality TV stars - but for a silly rule that only citizens born in the United States can become President. So he became the next best thing, Governor of California, the state with the biggest population and largest economy, and the epicentre of the great American dream that he had fallen in love with so long before and achieved himself superlatively. That's why he's my hero. Not because I want to achieve any of what he did (although millions in business would be nice!) but because of his determination to achieve the goals he set, which I too aim to achieve in my life.
