President's Award

Each year, Toyota Motor Sales recognizes its stellar dealerships with the prestigious President's Award. It's a very high honor a dealership can receive from Toyota, and is only awarded to those dealerships who have demonstrated a commitment to maintaining Toyota's high standards for customer satisfaction.

One of Toyota's primary goals is to emphasize the entire ownership experience. We want to help ensure that our customers are satisfied not only at the time of purchase, but as long as they own their vehicle. Offering top quality cars and trucks is, of course, the first step - but only the beginning. Toyota dealerships strive to match the quality of our products with the finest service in the industry. In order to qualify as a President's Award winner, dealerships must excel in each of a series of categories, including Customer Sales Satisfaction and Customer Service Satisfaction. Dealerships which meet the requirements in all categories receive name badge recognition at all dealer events, national recognition in an Automotive News advertisement and, of course, the beautiful President's Award Tiffany crystal trophy.

Herman: The guy you think is Charles Maund in the Toyota ads isn&#;t

In the oft-wacky world of auto dealer TV ads, the ones featuring Mr. and Mrs. Charles Maund — stars of the high-rotation ads for their local Toyota store — are less annoying than some and more annoying than others.

Some folks might find the Maunds entertaining. Some might find them grating. And some may find them omnipresent. I see them often while watching local TV news.

And I see them often enough to be curious about them. Their shtick is different than Kia guy Bill Dickason’s "We’re just gonna give it to you" pitch. They also differ from the Roger Beasley Mazda ads with the guy who seems to be trying to hypnotize me into a purchase with his mesmerizing monotone. And everyone with a TV knows Clay Cooley wants us to "Shop me first; shop me last. Either way, come see Clay."

The Charles Maund Toyota ads always end with Mr. or Mrs. Maund saying, "If you shop us, you’ll save." Then they look at each other, look back at us and say, "We guarantee it!"

There’s nothing wrong with that. Except this:

"Charles D. Maund, affectionately known as ‘Charlie’ by his many friends and customers, left this world peacefully on Dec. 1, … His wife and best friend, Helen Lang Maund, to whom he was wed for forty-seven years, predeceased Charlie."

So longtime car dealer Maund and his longtime wife are long gone, may they RIP. And come to think of it, the couple on the Charles Maund Toyota commercials never actually claim to be Charles and Helen Maund. We kinda just think they are, and they’re kinda OK with that.

But who are they really?

He is Randy Knaps. She is Ara Celi. We’ll deal with her first because her background is less interesting than Knaps’, which includes the improbable combination of the movie "Dirty Dancing" and evangelist Jimmy Swaggart.

Celi is a film and TV actress. Wikipedia: "She had a starring role in the minor dance movie ‘Looking for Lola,’ but she is probably best known for her role as Ampata Gutierrez aka ‘Inca Mummy Girl’ from season two of ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer.’"

And we’re told she "is now most often seen in television advertisements for Universal Toyota car dealership in San Antonio, Texas, and Charles Maund Toyota dealership in Austin, Texas, and Boggus Ford dealership in McAllen, Texas."

She was born in El Paso and won the GuyRex Mrs. Texas Pageant. In , she played Raquel Dion Santos in "All My Children." She lives near San Antonio with her husband and two kids.

Knaps, 60, is a Louisiana-based musician and TV pitch guy.

"When it comes to turnkey automotive concept, production and talent I’ve been around the block several thousand times," he tells us on LinkedIn. "I also do ‘On Camera Talent,’ specializing in spokesperson and character acting. I’ve also produced tons of jingles in the past 30 years which is also a pertinent part of my business. I also do a wee bit of singing."

Knaps, whose Baton Rouge production company is called MediaScope, recently shared with me this just-as-we-suspected secret of auto dealer TV ads.

"It doesn’t matter if you love it or you hate it," Knaps disclosed. "But did you remember it? It’s OK for someone to go, ‘God, I hate that commercial for Charles Maund’ because they just said it. That’s name recognition right there."

And then there’s the is-he-Charles-Maund? thing. No, Knaps acknowledges, he’s not.

"He’s way dead," he said.

But Knaps also acknowledged it’s way OK if people think he’s Maund. And people do.

"That is the branding we created and it’s very unique and it’s a wonderful thing, because that’s what people buy into," Knaps said. "They think I’m Charles Maund and they think she’s my wife."

He said this wasn’t a plan. "It just morphed into it."

Knaps confirmed it earlier this year when a waiter in a local restaurant greeted him with, "Mr. Maund, how are you?"

Knaps’ "Dirty Dancing" connection is singing backup up to the Doobie Brothers’ Tom Johnston on "Where Are You Tonight?" Because you love that movie, you know that Jennifer Warnes and Righteous Brother Bill Medley sang the movie’s signature song, "(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life."

And it turns out Knaps is a real-life righteous brother of evangelist Swaggart, who, as you’ll recall, has had his ups and downs. Knaps has been singing at Swaggart services for about 12 years.

"I had stopped playing music and started seeking the Lord a little bit more and decided I didn’t want to play in night clubs anymore. I was making enough money doing commercials," he recalled.

Knaps was playing at small, member church when a musician friend told him Swaggart had some openings. Knaps auditioned and got the gig. He does three services a week, every other week, and twice a year Swaggart camp meetings.

Online video shows his initial appearance with Swaggart in March when Knaps punched out a powerful rendition of "The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power," an Andrae Crouch gospel song.

"Randy Knaps is new to you," Swaggart said by way of introduction, "and you are new to him. But he’s going to bless you this morning. He loves the Lord and that’s the thing that really counts. Would you welcome him to Family Worship Center?"

And by way of profession of faith, Knaps told me, "It’s only been a short time for me, four years. Twenty years on the fence, four years getting it together and it’s just now starting to get right. Hallelujah."

Because I hope to go into advertising when this newspaper thing runs its course, I had a suggestion for Knaps, one based on the Charles Maund Toyota ad tagline, "If you shop us, you’ll save. We guarantee it!"

"You and Swaggart ought to look at each other and say, ‘If you pray with us, you’ll be saved … ."

Because he’s already a savvy ad guy, Knaps kicked in with the punchline before I could. "We guarantee it." This guy’s a pro.

As a footnote here, I’d like to point out that I’m not alone in my fascination with car dealer pitch guys. Someone on Reddit who’s really funny (or sadly shares my interest in these ads) posted this a few months ago on a thread called "The guy from the Charles Maund Toyota commercials is actually a gospel singer named Randy Knaps."

"Last year I learned that the woman who comes out with him isn’t even his wife! She’s an actress named Ara Celi. Now this? This is too much. My life is a (expletive deleted) lie."

Someone else wrote: "I always thought they looked like a creepy swinger couple."

Another someone else added: "What’s next? Clay Cooley is actually a Russian talent show host?!?"

No, he’s not. We guarantee it.

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't % safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in and expanded into Europe in Around team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.

Galina Ivanovna got up and locked the bathroom door. For a whole week we tried to be in Lena's company. But the same picture remained before my eyes: a naked, large woman in the water and my fluttering penis. At work, everything fell out of hand. However, this day was destined to come.

A little more. The girl parted her buttocks so that the anus, shiny with grease, opened slightly. Without hesitating for a second, I put the crimson head to its "back gate" and pressed firmly. Yes, that was something. An incredibly tight sphincter gripped the head tightly like a glove on a hand.
