Guinness freezes super salesman record , What?

Guinness-records
Guinness World Records has taken a step back from the dispute between two record-setting car salesmen. Earlier, we wrote about strong-selling Joe Girard, who sold a record number of cars in 1972 and was so eager to defend his title that he disputed the new record claimed by Ali Reda. Instead of granting the super salesman title to Reda, who reportedly sold 1,582 cars last year, Guinness is now retiring the car sales category and granting Girard the title of a "historic record holder" with his 1973 achievement of 1,425 vehicles. Even if General Motors is backing up Reda's sales numbers, Guinness says that there is no way to "sufficiently verify the figures," Automotive News reports. Apparently bookkeeping was different in the days of Girard, who gets to keep his status for the foreseeable future. In a statement to Automotive News, a Guinness spokesperson wrote: "The organization requires a clear and independent analysis of the competition, either through market analysis or from a global institution who monitors sales in the industry in order to confirm a record holder in this category.

Its 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 makes 760 hp and 625 lb-ft of torque through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, all wrapped up in a lightened and aerodynamically optimized body. It’s a seriously impressive machine, made more so by seeing how far the GT500 nameplate has […]

These nifty feet warmers come from a company called Heel Tread, which specializes strictly in socks. Yes, you can go to the nearest big box store and get a pair of socks, and some might even have an automaker logo on them. We love these particular socks, however, because they’re insanely creative in how the designs connect to various automakers and specific cars. The livery socks for the Ford GT40, Porsche 911, and E30 BMW M3 are spot-on, and who wouldn’t want a plaid pair to match the VW Golf GTI's iconic interior? Yes it’s cute and perhaps a bit silly, but come on – it’s also freaking awesome.....
