Fast Painting of a Jesus face

A few years ago, I was able to see this live, in person. I think it was Easter Sunday. Here is the video for you to watch and see how an artist gets paint on a canvas, and quickly transforms that into an image. This is in San Antonio, Texas in 2012.

Fly with HondaJet

The Power of Dreams will be yours in a new HondaJet. The dream of Honda is to power the sky as well as the road. The new “over the wing engine” mount makes this plane special. Honda has been known as one of the best engine makers in the world. We know the cars, the motorcycles, the small appliances and now something bigger.
I checked into finding a dealer in the southwest US, and the closest is in Phoenix, Mr. Will Cutter. I wonder if I can do a test drive/fly.
So for anyone interested in looking further, here’s a link to dream on, and the music is pretty special, too.
What’s your experience with the HondaJet? Let us know how you learn about them and if you fly them.

A wonderful shopping alternative

sunsetWe’ve been covering the border region in our recent Fuller Honda press. The lines to cross into the US are short or missing, the economic news is positive and now we have new shopping alternatives.

If you bring your car to Fuller Honda for service, we can give you a lift to and from some of the region’s finest nearby outlet malls. Just opened, “Outlets at the Border” which serves the 100 million cars and pedestrians who cross between Chula Vista and Tijuana every year could be your new favorite home away from home, right by the border. The Outlets at the Border has the largest H&M Flagship store, was designed to connect the new pedestrian bridge that will open in the not too distant future, and also connect Las Americas Premium Outlets.

So, come to our region, bring your families and shop at this border and enjoy the experience. And don’t forget to visit Fuller Honda, if you need any service or parts, a rental, or even a new or used car. We’re here for you.

List of the new stores:

  • Rack Room Shoes
  • Armani Exchange
  • H&M Flagship
  • Skullcandy Factory Store,
  • Nixon
  • Volcom
  • A’Gaci
  • Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (my favorite)
  • Icing by Claire’s
  • Ghirardelli
  • Auntie Anne’s Pretzels
  • Cinnabon
  • Carvel
  • Panda Express

The stores will open for holiday shopping and will have a tropical feel.

What should we call our MegaRegion?

What should we call our MegaRegion?

Free as a bird

Free as a bird

South County Economic Development Corporation (SDEDC) has been a champion in creating this region as robust and worth investment. Cindy Gompers Graves has been instrumental in every way to push for our voice. We applaud her efforts.

The Tijuana EDC wants you to think of our region as CaliBaja. That is a bigger voice, with more money, more power, and more land to consider. One day, we could all be combined, like things were before history changed and California was split from Mexico.

In the meantime, let’s call ourselves fortunate. We are so blessed to live in a land where freedom allows us to speak our beliefs, where we can explore new learning, and where we can raise our families in economic prosperity. Certainly, it could be better, but let’s be grateful for what we have. It’s an attitude, dude.

South of the Border

Plant EDC snapshotSource: Tijuana EDC

What’s going on in Mexico, you ask? You can ask Manuel at the EDC to tell you how the country is doing, and he’ll be glad to share that. After celebrating their 25th anniversary, and with more than 569 manufacturing facilities in Tijuana operating, they are not resting. They intend to show the world their strength and capacity to improve. They have acquired one of the most skilled workforces in Mexico, and Mexico is the 15th largest economy in the world. George Friedman, in his 2009 book, The Next 100 Years: A Forecast for the 21st Century, writes that by the late 21st Century, Mexico will be one of the major economic powers in the world.

Friedman talks about a shrinking world population, a major labor shortage in advanced industrial countries, and how we will be paying people to move to the US, in the not too distant future. So, instead of the immigration issues we face now, we will be asking for more immigration from Mexico and Latin America to fill the jobs at the low end of the labor spectrum.

We know that Fuller Honda is the closest US dealership to the border. We know there are no more long border lines, and that due to that, our border economy is poised to grow stronger than it has in years. The border wait has been costing us dearly, some say up to $80 billion dollars per year.

What does that mean to you as a customer of Fuller Honda. We’re ready to serve you. With our state of the art and nicest facility in California (according to Honda), we are open and welcoming you to visit and see our service, our people, and our love for transportation.

So even if you’re not seeing the electronics, medical, or other industry growth in Tijuana, we want to help our community grow and prosper. What better way to show you are successful than a new car? Pick out yours today at Fuller Honda.

Now that I found Fuller, what should I do?


You’re here and we’re happy. See Fernando smile. See Sam smile at Fernando being happy.
That’s us at Fuller Honda. We sold more cars last month than we ever did before. But that doesn’t mean we’re finished. By a long shot, no. We have a lot of ground to cover as Honda is more popular than ever, and we are on a mission to find those who are still searching for the right vehicle.
What really matters to us is that you know your needs. The average person does a lot of online shopping, then visits 1.8 dealerships before they buy. We want to be sure that Fuller Honda has a shot at your business. And then once you find how great we are, we know you’ll want to come back again and again. Only if we do our job, though. Most people don’t ever want to visit a car dealership. They don’t feel welcome or comfortable. We hope to change this perception, one person at a time.

Fun fact: Did you know that the Fuller Honda interior design work was done by the same guys who designed the Oakland Raiders locker room? Now how about that for a good trivia answer!

The answer to the big question about now that you found Fuller, what should you do? Make an appointment to see your sales professional and if you can’t come in, we can come to you. We’re going to be around for many more than the three generations we have already. So get your taste of what it means to be fortunate to find Fuller.
