2007 Mitsubishi Galant for Malissa | #usedcars #kansascity

Malissa traded out of her two-door sports coupe to make room for her children. Smart move. Glad I had the right vehicle to solve her transportation needs. Congratulations, Malissa. Enjoy your Galant.

New 2010 Ford Fusion for Kim | #ford #fusion #kansascity

Kim (seen here with her husband, Brian) is a Registered Nurse who helps bring new lives into this world. Yet, when she came in, her old car was sucking the life out of her because her air conditioner failed in our 100 degree weather. Make no mistake, her old Nissan Maxima served her well for 8 years and 160,000 miles. But, alas, it was time to move on.

When Kim and Brian came on the lot, the temperature outside was in the high 90's. We worked together to find just the right level of vehicle.. with lots of great technology.. and a trim level acceptable to her. Well, she picked up her brand new, 2010 Ford Fusion SEL today. And, yes.. it was icy cold in her new car. 

Congratulations, Kim!!!  Enjoy your car.

It was a pleasure helping you find the right vehicle for you.

Yeh... It's HOT in Kansas | Selling #ford the hard way | #kansascity

Of course, this is just what the car thought the temperature was. It was lower.. but still super hot.

New 2010 Ford Escape for Kelli (and Mike) | #ford #fordescape #kansascity

This is Kelli's THIRD Ford Escape. Yeh... she loaded this one up with leather and the full Navigation system. She's as happy as can be and this is her sixth purchase from Shawnee Mission Ford. Tell me that's not a great endorsement.

Enjoy your vehicle, Kelli. Congratulations!

Shawnee Mission Ford tent sale Aug. - Sept. 2010 | #kansascity #sale #ford #usedcars #newcars

A place to escape the sun, have some fun, and view some used cars in Shawnee, Kansas. The tent will be up for a while. We'll be providing food on certain days... stay tuned for details.

Just remember to ask for "Jim Canto" if you come to Shawnee Mission Ford. I'm in the New Car building... but I can sell anything on the lot. We even have our own "second chance" finance lot. So, if you know someone who needs help... please send them my way.

I look forward to meeting some of you. Please share this with your online network by using some of the buttons below this post.

2011 Ford Super Duty reclaims pickup titles | #ford #superduty

I'm still relatively new to the Ford Truck line-up. Though not a true truck person, I've always respected the Super Duty. Now, having hands on experience with them, I can see why the 2011 upgrades to the Ford F250 Super Duty lineup are a genuine "big deal."

Just thought you folks might find this impressive to see. This thing had to be as long as my thumb from knuckle to fingertip.

New 2010 Ford Focus for Petra in Kansas City | #ford #fordfocus #kansascity

Petra, as she requested to be called for this post, is a close friend who has been driving a 1995 Olds Achieva with 148,000 miles on it. She decided it was time to spice up her transportation a bit and came to look at Fords at Shawnee Mission Ford.

Petra was initially interested in the New Ford Fiesta ... though I figured her to be a Ford Fusion buyer. While escaping the heat via our showroom floor, Petra became very interested in a New 2010 Ford Focus she saw. Really it was the wheels and tires which caught her attention. And.. as you can see, that's what she ultimately ended up owning.

Congratulations Petra!!! Thanks for trusting me enough to allow me to help you get your first new car in many, many years. Enjoy!!!
