Okay, so maybe the title is a bit misleading. I am trading my Kia Forte for a Kia Stinger, but only for a day. Kia is sending me to North Hollywood on an all expenses paid trip to drive the new Kia Stinger. I assure you that everything I talk about regarding the experience will be 100% my own opinion.
There is a real 70’s vibe around this trip. We are going to be heading to NoHo or North Hollywood, California where we will be staying at The Beverly Garland Hotel, or The Garland for short. I’m very excited to stay here because the photos look incredible and it has a super cool vibe on the website. Take a look at the interior of the lobby.
It is like a time capsule of the 70’s but all the best parts. The rest of the photos of the grounds are also very cool and I am looking forward to exploring.
Apparently, the hotel is right around the corner from the home that served as the facade of the Brady Bunch house. You know that building that in no way looked like the interior of the Brady home but it was the house that was the shot that was used every episode. I’m excited to see it. I watched The Brady Bunch every day as a little kid. But that house is within walking distance of the hotel. The Kia Stinger is meant to be driven and that is just what we are going to do!
We are going to be driving the Kia Stinger through the mountainous Angeles National Forest. I cannot wait to drive this car, either. The first time I saw this car I was incredible excited. This is a beautiful vehicle. It has beautiful lines and conjures up feelings of muscle and speed. The front of the car has an aggressive look and the overall lines of the car are clean and strong. I’m hoping to get some amazing photos of this car. That is one of my main goals, to get an eye-popping photo of this car along our driving route. This is a car begging to be photographed. I don’t know a whole lot more about the car yet and so can’t speak to all the amenities, I’ll save that for when I experience them myself. but what I can say is that I’m thrilled to be a part of the Kia experience.
There are two waves of this trip and I am in the second wave. My ride partner is Tessa from Mama’s Geeky so you’ll see a lot of social stuff from the both of us. You can follow me on Twitter and Instagram at @BenSpark. I’ll try and do some Facebook live and maybe some other video, I’ll definitely get a photo by the Brady Bunch house and look forward to lots of photos of the Kia Stinger. Follow the hashtag #StingerIsHere on twitter starting today 11/13 because Wave 1 begins today and keep following all week long for lots of great information on the Kia Stinger.
