Is DFW Elite Car the Safest Auto Club in the U.S.?

Newest Additions Provide Light Armored Protection for the Ultimate in Personal Safety

    /24-7PressRelease/ - DALLAS, TX, April 03, 2007 - DFW Elite Car already is the largest automotive club in the United States, and with its recent additions, it also might be the safest. With more than 50 luxury cars, trucks and SUVs already available to club members, owner Ron Sturgeon now has added armored vehicles to the massive fleet.

"In today's world, you cannot overlook the issue of personal protection," Sturgeon says. "Personal safety is something that many of our clients think about. The growing popularity of armored vehicles has made it possible for us to make them accessible to our members."

Although once reserved only for the most elite members of society, today armored vehicles have found popularity with business executives as well as with celebrities, athletes and politicians. According to David W. McCoy, a Fort Worth-based Certified Protection Professional, the market for armored cars continues to grow as Americans become more aware of threats ranging from road rage to random acts of terrorism.

"America's perception has changed, and that makes them want safer vehicles. Armored cars provide the kind of safety and protection they're looking for," McCoy explains.

The first two armored vehicles in DFW Elite Car's fleet are a Hummer H2 and Chevrolet Suburban, both of which have been customized with bullet-proof windows, light ballistic steel body armor, Run-Flat tires and a steel undercoating. Although they look like other models on the street, the armored SUVs are impenetrable by gunshots, hammers, bats and hatches.

"With more and more people thinking about personal safety, we knew this was something we wanted to make available to our club members," Sturgeon says. "The Hummer H2 and Suburban are two of the most popular vehicles being modified with light armor today, so we wanted to include them in our stable of exotic and luxury cars."

The bulletproof vehicles join an extensive collection of cars that range from classic beauties to models hot off the assembly line. For a monthly fee, members have access to cars including Land Rovers, Porsches, Ferraris, Bentleys and even the new Rolls-Royce Phantom.

In addition to access to more than 50 luxury cars, membership in DFW Elite Car includes special invitations to exclusive, members-only events; a points system that rewards members for referrals and are carried over from month to month; an affiliate agreement that provides discounts with other car clubs; and discounts off the innovative Drive Your Dream exotic auto tours.

DFW Elite Car is headquartered at 5940 Eden in Fort Worth, and serves Houston, San Antonio, and Austin, as well as the DFW Metroplex. For more information and to see a complete inventory of available vehicles, visit, or call 817.231.0788.
