Nordgren Automotive’s Summertime Road Trip Playlist

Nothing complements a road trip quite like some great music. When we were searching for something new we came across both of these videos. Each video is a cool little gem in its own way. But because they each feature cars, these videos made the whole Nordgren Automotive team smile.
