Today for Team Member Monday we are highlighting Athen’s Ohio Resident and Buckeye Honda Sales Consultant – Larry Guy!
Larry has only been with the Buckeye Honda sales team in Lancaster, Ohio for a couple of months but he fits right in. With a fantastic car background deeply rooted in amateur racing, Larry brings a technical side to the sales department as well as a professional straight-forward personality that has made Larry a customer favorite.
Competing in the “Longest Day of Nelson” a 24-Hour endurance event, Larry finished 3rd in his class. Larry says that he has been a “Car Nut” since he was a kid and has been a member of the Sports Car Club of America since he was 18 years old. When asked to name his favorite car, Larry doesn’t hesitate and says that it has to be his Honda S2000. Guess what Larry’s favorite childhood toy was. Yep you guessed it, race car inspired Hot Wheels!
When not working hard at Buckeye Honda, tooling around on the track or going to a race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Larry can be found hiking, kayaking, mountain biking or just outside enjoying what nature has to offer. Larry really enjoys the outdoors and he also enjoys eating healthy. Larry recently made a few changes in the way he eats and has switched to a plant based diet and has enjoyed it so much that he has become a Certified “Complete Health Improvement Project” (CHIP) Facilitator. Larry says ” I finished teaching my first class the week before I started at Buckeye Honda. We had several diabetics and hypertensive students who were able to reduce or eliminate their medications. ” If you would have asked me 2 years ago what my favorite comfort food was I would have said macaroni and cheese, but now it’s Vegan Chocolate Cherry Chocolate Chip cookies from Crumb’s Bakery in Athens.
