WIN is a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging, developing, and cultivating opportunities to attract women to the field of collision repair while recognizing excellence, promoting leadership, and fostering a network among the women who are shaping the industry. The theme for this year’s event, held in the Mile-High City of Denver, Colo., was “Be Extraordinary.” 271 women attended the conference – more than half the total WIN membership, and the highest attendance to date.

At the 2017 Alliance of Automotive Service Providers/New Jersey (AASP/NJ) Conference and Tradeshow, Mike Anderson of Collision Advice debuted a condensed version of a new seminar on “100% Disassembly and Parts Mirror Matching.”

While we can’t show you the seminar, freelance writer Chasidy Rae Sisk provides a detailed recap of the one-hour event in this Autobodynews.com article.

Automotive repair industry veteran John Shoemaker writes in a recent Aftermarket Business World™ article that, “ … we need to rethink the way we discuss repairs with insurers.

This being the 50th anniversary of SEMA, they really pulled out all the stops to make it the most memorable ever. The “Battle of the Builders” is a new competition that scopes out the finest custom cars on the floor show. As reported in ca.motor1.com, the winner this year was newcomer Cam Miller and his 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, said to be “… absolutely flawless from every angle.”

The racing checkerboard flooring at the ALLDATA booth turned out to be symbolic of the fast pace on the SEMA show floor. The reason for all the buzz? We unveiled a new technology platform – with all the bells and whistles of the hottest software out there – that now powers ALLDATA Repair® and Collision®.

The Jeep® was a recognizable symbol of American fighting forces in World War II, just as the “Huey” helicopter was an iconic symbol of Vietnam.

Just about anyone who cares about machines on wheels – and that should include everyone reading this – has probably heard that the name Jeep was derived from the initials, G.P., initials for “general purpose.” That explanation has been repeated so many times that hardly anyone questions it.
