Hello Blackwing Fam!

The Salesman, formerly known as Blackwing King, aka Dustin Callaway, here..

I have stepped away from the throne and taken off my crown. It has been a blast helping many of you get into the the driver's seat of these amazing vehicles throughout the past couple years but the time has come for me to make a change.

Id like to first start by saying this choice didn't come easy. To not only walk away from 100's of orders, but to walk away from Sewell.... Guys, I know you know Sewell is different that the other dealership as a customer, but it also is as an employee. It's a great company and I still want to highly recommend them..

If you have current orders in the queue, I don't have a lot of answers for you other than nothing will change when it comes to your order. The Mgmt team has all of your information and someone should eventually reach out to you to place a new 2025 build for you... In the event someone doesn't, you can call their main number at 214-350-2000 and request one of the managers below.
  • General Manager - Blake Thompson
    • New Car Sales Director - Kirkland Taylor
      • New Car Sales Manager - Sam Faddoul
      • New Car Sales Manager - Wes Peters
      • New Car Sales Manager - Jason Vasquez

So why did I leave?
There answer is Time..... or lack there of..

I have been beyond the point of overwhelmed for way too long and haven't been able to provide my family with the amount of time they deserve and that I deserve with them..
I got a new dog over a year ago and I think it still thinks I am visiting house guest and don't live here...... (that's not even a joke) .... I have a niece who lives only 30 mins away I have only met once, and shes like 6 years old.... I don't even know her age........ I imagine you can see where I am coming from.... I need change... I would like to add a mini Blackwing king to the family someday in the near future and I need to figure this out before then....

Again, I want to be crystal clear that nothing here is the fault of Sewell. Sewell did nothing wrong and this was strictly a personal decision. I apologize in advance to you all that I wont be able to help you through the rest of the process or be able to meet you at the delivery...

What will I do?
Over the past few years, I have been day trading on the side in the mornings........I have been pretty successful but being able to dedicate my time to this fully, I believe may work out for me, giving me time with family.... Il take any prayers or wishful luck from anyone 🤣🤣

Thank you all, a million times, for your business and for all of the friendships that I have made over the past few years working with you all.... I am going to surely going to miss helping you all as well as all of the friends I have made at Sewell...
 
The king is dead, long live the king!

Your dedication to the enthusiast has been much appreciated. Best of luck for the future!
 
If you did not have time for your family while working at Sewell......I would definitely blame Sewell.
As for Day Trading......I hope you are one of the few that are actually successful at it. If that doesn't work out, I'm sure you can go back to selling cars again without any problem. Bring your dog to work and say its a "service dog". LOL !
 
Since January you would have to try really hard not to make money in the stock market. As for day trading, well above my skill level. I’ll stick to swing trading, much less stressful.
 
Best of luck to you, Dustin! I have never met you in person, but we've spoken many times on the phone. Your honesty and professionalism was (is) always refreshing and appreciated. It was nice having someone to possibly turn to for a sales recommendation at one of your other stores.
 
Good luck, bought our car from you and never laid eyes on you! Lol
Thanks for your help, safe travels during life’s journey!
Cheers
Richard
 
All Hail the King!!

You are a class act, Dustin. You have do so much for many of us here. I wish you nothing but the best moving forward!

PS, don't forget to grab the black marble King when you are cleaning out the office (y)
 
Success breeds more success, especially in car sales. Its very difficult to not be working all the time if you are a good salesman, after all, more sales means you can provide even more for your family but at the same time it can feel like you're a stranger.

It is incredibly difficult to balance once you have made a name for yourself so we all understand the need to step back.

Cheers from Canada, you can't even sell me a car but you assisted with trying to get me the new Blackwing badge for my 2023. I can't even begin to describe that level of dedication to a job, providing support to a dude 3000 miles away in another country in this environment.

All the best.
 
I trade beers with my neighbor. I find a good job and traditional investments offer the right balance of return and stability. Working gives me back a lot more than a paycheck.

Thanks for your contributions to the group and the many happy BW owners that you fulfilled orders with. Cheers!
 
“Hundreds of orders”. Truly, no bit of exaggeration here. The guy’s a legend. But glad to hear you are assessing what is most important in life, “family” & “health”.
Thank you for allowing me, and the countless others here, for the pleasure of being a customer of yours.
 
For those of you that didn't have the chance to deal with Dustin/Sewell, an ancedote: About a month after I flew to Dallas to get mine, he reached out and asked how it was going. I told him I hadn't had as much time with it as I wanted since my mother-in-law had had a heart attack. He got all her info and there was a delivery of flowers to her hospital room by the end of the day from Sewell.

No reason for that, the car sale was already done. That's just who he is.

You will be missed, sir.
 
I know that some car salesmen make a crap-ton of money, but most just get by, and either way it's a huge amount of time and energy. Best of luck to you Dustin, in your new "career". And good on you, putting the family first.

I day trade a little bit, but most of the time I just break even. It keeps me off the streets. I couldn't live off of it, because of the stress but mostly due to a lack of talent, LOL.
 
I have no words, I look at Dustin as a friend and not a sales guy! I have gone to dinner with him and his lovely wife and all I can say about that is they are a class act! Long live the king!

This is like a gut punch to me!

I feel like crying!
 
Best of luck, Dustin! Hope GME and your other day trading stocks treat you well!

My best, and most shared experience when buying a very special edition car. Couldn't have had a better experience with a real pro in managing the customer experience. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
 
Best of luck to you in your future endeavors, Dustin. I have a similar decision to make in my life, and admire the courage it takes to walk away. You made my purchase experience smooth and stress free. The guy even helped me apply XPEL track wrap to the front of my car before driving home to Florida! You don’t see that level of service very often.
