We always love seeing airports in the area reach out to the community. Long Beach Airport recently participated in the 7th Annual Good Neighbor Festival and Picnic. The Good Neighbor Festival and Picnic is a project that Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske, of the 5th District, has overseen for the past seven years and showcases a variety of participants who believe in the community and what it can be when we work together. LGB Staff and volunteers handed out bubbles, beach balls, tote bags, doggie bandanas and animal waste bags. While talking to the community, the Airport received great feedback on the concourse remodel.

Since the mid-1990s BINZ has been making long-wheelbase G-wagens with minivan-style sliding rear doors and other surprises. For a long time, this version of the G-class has remained somewhat hush-hush, in the sense that one couldn’t just stroll into a Mercedes-Benz dealership and expect the sales staff to know anything about it, and remained largely unadvertised. These trucks are made for effectiveness and versatility rather than for luxury, but since BINZ is starting out with modern G-class interiors, very little of the luxury feel of the trucks (assuming it was there in the first place) appears to have been lost in the transition to the bodyguard versions. Although these are meant for bodyguards, we are still able to appreciate this unique chauffeured vehicle.

In the limousine industry, we are always interested in seeing what is new and different, even if it’s a little far-fetched. Although it may not appeal to your specific tastes, this offbeat Ferrari replica limo looks amazingly realistic. It started off as a Peugeot 406 and has been turned into this stretch limo by Ukrainian firm Vip-Lim. Although it doesn’t have a Ferrari V8 under its hood, this limo could certainly fool a few into believing that someone actually chopped a Ferrari F430 in half.

Mercedes-Benz became the new leader in the latest American Customer Satisfaction Index by scoring an 88 out of 100. The American Customer Satisfaction Index, based on phone and e-mail interviews with 4,078 recent customers randomly picked between April 6 and May 22, found that customer satisfaction with automobiles and light vehicles dropped 1.2 percent to an industry wide average of 83, down from 84 in 2012. Although overall satisfaction has decreased, experts are stating that since consumers have been pleased with their previous purchases, they now expect their latest vehicles to meet or surpass their expectations.
