Happy Days are here again!

I am happy to announce that the worst of global recession is over! Now you are probably wondering how I can claim to such a conclusion? No, Paul the Oracle Octopus did not tell me. But each day I am greeted by emails from luxury car makers stating that sales are heading through the roof.

Rolls rolling up sales

Rolls rolling up sales

One such company is Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. The uber luxury automaker is selling cars at record levels. Purchases in June quadrupled worldwide and in the first 2 quarters of 2010 sales were up by almost 200%, compared with the same periods in 2009.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “This is an excellent interim result and we are well on our way to meeting our target of at least doubling our 2009 sales result.”

Now for those of you with an extra half a million dollars to drop on a new ride, you should hurry to your nearest Rolls dealership because it is reported that some models have a waiting list until at least October.

And that’s the latest in the K-lane.
