Siemer Auto Center Review

Are you in need of a new/used vehicle??  I have the PERFECT Car Dealership for you!!!  No kidding!

Siemer Auto Center is an incredibly friendly, honest dealership!  We have lived in the midwest now for 15 years, and we have always purchased our vehicles from Siemer.  Well...the first one was from Siemer himself...but at that time he worked at a different dealership.  He then went on to open his own dealership, and we have always purchased from Siemer Auto Center since then!  We have NEVER been sorry!  Jason Siemer (the owner) has become a good friend....our kids play hockey together....he is always honest, always reliable, and always friendly.  He looks out for his customers and takes great care of them.  I have referred a handful of people personally to his dealership and they have ALL been VERY happy with their purchases.  Check it out!  He will ship the car to you as well.  You won't be sorry you did!  Check out his website, take a drive up there if you're local, and bring …


Since I am Nebraska Hockey Mom...I thought I should share some hockey moments!  The season is OVER for the year!!!  WOOHOO!!  Don't get me wrong...I do love hockey....but it is a REALLY long season!  We start practicing in September and don't have our last tournaments until the end of March!  LONG season!  I do have one son that has opted out of lacrosse for the summer and instead will be playing summer hockey....but summer hockey isn't near as tedious as regular season I can deal with that.  It is nice to have a break from the ice rink though.  This year 3 of my kids played...including my daughter.  My youngest will start in the fall...which means I will then have 4 in hockey!  Yikes!  My daughter enjoys figure skating too....but she has chosen to do that in the summertime instead so she can beat boys up during hockey season on the ice.  She is quite the little tomboy.  At least I get a little bit of girl during the summer in figure skating!  :-)
