“I believe a new vehicle is far more than just a 'new set of wheels'. It is something with which you will associate beautiful memories and fun times with your family and friends.” No one is really sure where the moniker “Ugly Mike” came from and as you can see, it really isn’t true! However, "Ugly" Mike is happy to acknowledge that he has a face for radio! A native Texan from Lake Jackson, "Ugly" Mike is a pure car guy who has been the General Manager at what are among the most successful dealerships in Houston TX. Toyota, Ford, Nissan, Mazda, Lexus and BMW among them. “I keep getting fired from some of the best stores in town” - Ugly Mike says jokingly! The facts are, when you know how to treat customers as well as "Ugly" Mike does, you keep getting asked to bring your leadership abilities to other stores within the same group. "Ugly" Mike is a perfect fit for Matchmaker Auto and brings his personal touch to you every week on Saturday on the Matchmaker Auto Show.
