etirement is more of a beginning than an ending. It’s a time
for following dreams, pursuing
passions, expanding horizons. And, as
they say, “it’s more about the journey
than the destination.” If you are looking for a vehicle that will be a perfect
fit for your new stage of life, then look
no farther than Barker Buick GMC
Cadillac.
“The biggest sellers among people
in the over-50 demographic is SUVs,”
says Dick Meads, Barker General Sales
Manager. “They like the flexibility of
the SUV, where they can take 2 or 3
couples out to dinner or for a drive.
And also they have plenty of room to
h
aul tthings,
hings, wh
ether it

whether
it’s’s a SSaturday
morning stop at Menards or chauffeuring the grandkids.”

we don’t even turn on the entertainment system. They all have their own
phones and iPads, so they are all on
their own screens.”
The three vehicles featured here all
have their own built-in Wifi hotspots,
so you can connect up to 7 devices at
the same time. “There’s times at home
when I can’t get on my Internet, so I
go out in my Enclave and I’m all set,”
laughs Meads.
