Midsize sedan shoppers can, and often do, purchase loaded-to-the-roof Toyota Camrys, Honda Accords, Ford Fusions, etc., and shell out plenty of currency for their selections. But for not a huge budget stretch, these same folks could be riding high in an entry-luxury model like the 2017 Audi A4.
Las Vegas Harley-Davidson, owned and operated by longtime Las Vegas residents Don Andress and Tim Cashman, has announced its much-anticipated 2017 Model Launch Party. The event will be held on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the new state-of-the-art dealership on the Strip, 5191 Las Vegas Blvd. South.
The car is substantially better than its marketing. It seems as if the people who made it knew exactly who they were making it for — proud folks who worked hard all of their lives, who know themselves and what they’ve been through and who don’t need an external symbol of “prestige.” They just enjoy a good time and appreciate a nice car in which to share that time.
The community is invited to stop by Findlay North Volkswagen at 7500 W. Azure Drive on Saturday, Sept. 24, for food, fun and a free car seat check or installation. The event will take place from 1 to 4 p.m.
The cool car gets the girl, right?

Tip of the Week
When mainstream won’t cut it
With the Q50 Red Sport 3.0t 400, Infiniti offers what it modestly calls “an engaging driving experience.” Let’s start with the name: 400 is the horsepower output; “3.0t” means the engine has three liters of capacity (in six cylinders, arranged in a “V”-shape) and it’s turbocharged; and “Red Sport” makes me think the marketing department went home on Friday having failed to come up with a better way to indicate that this is the most high-tech and power-soaked sedan Infiniti has ever offered. That or someone’s a fan of Conan the Barbarian’s crazed girlfriend. Clumsy nomenclature notwithstanding, Infiniti’s Red Sonja is a firecracker.
The 2016 Toyota Scion FR-S at Findlay Toyota fits the bill for a customer looking for a sporty vehicle that also gets excellent gas mileage. With a peppy 2.0-liter powerplant, the FRS delivers 200 horsepower and gets up to 25 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.
