L-R are Thom Gyder, Winner
Brian Hodson and Chris Garman
Congratulations to Brian Hodson who was the big winner of the Wilhelm Automotive SMART Car raffle drawing! Brian is a long-time customer at Wilhelm’s Tatum Ranch location and says he ‘never wins anything.’ He is also the owner and CEO of Hodson Jewelry Galleries based in Scottsdale, Arizona. We were so pleased to hear that within days of winning the SMART car, Brian was already driving it to complete his work ‘loop’—a route he takes several times a week to visit various vendors and jewelers. He used to drive a motorcycle on the route to save gas but says the SMART car gets the same gas mileage and offers him the comfort of air conditioning. Hodson noted he gets asked about the car all the time, and people always notice it when he is driving.
“Ours is a family business as Wilhelm is, which was a factor in choosing you to do our work. I prefer independent stores, no matter what the business is, over the big box nationals. All in all, I couldn’t be happier with your service, and will continue to recommend you to friends,” said Hodson.
