Reality show “Life on the Lot” revolves around the adventures of a used car lot located in the laid back surfing city of Encinitas, CA. Ez Cars 101 owner Gene Ventura, a smart and charismatic car dealer, tries to run a business while dealing with a crazy collection of customers including rich car collectors, returning war vets, stressed-out single moms, surfer dudes and pretty beach babes. He and his spirited General Manager, Linda Johnson, aka “Lot Wife” also have an oddball group of employees called the “Lot Boys” who help them get the job done-sometimes! Gene and Linda never know who or what is going to pull onto “The Lot.” There is the occasional kook or con, but there is never a typical day in Life on the Lot.
Gene is the president and owner of EZ Cars 101, his current successful venture in a string of successful businesses. “There’s calculated risk in everything you do,” he says, talking about the hard times as well as the victories. “I’ve spent my life rolling the dice. ‘Life on the Lot’ is a culmination of all of those experiences.”
But Gene is a “now” kind of guy with a keen focus on the present. He doesn’t hang his hat on prior successes. He’s audaciously open, sincere, honest and down-to-earth. He trusts people completely until they give him a reason not to. While occasionally this creed backfires, as some customers try to take advantage, overall Gene happily swears by this philosophy.
Then, there’s cars—Gene’s passion. “I think I was a mechanic in my last life,” he laughs. “When I was a kid I had every Hot Wheel car there was. Cars were the world to me, even my first one—a big, clunky red ’68 Ford LTD that I turned into an ‘Animal House’ car. And now, all these cars I’m messing around with at EZ Cars, like the Chevy Chevelle SS we shot in the pilot, they’re my childhood dream come true.”
Gene always remembers that the license plate on his dad’s car read “Sumday.” When he died at age 51 the family found a box in his closet with $2,500 worth of quarters, money he’d stashed to go to Hawaii “someday.”
“There is no ‘someday’” says Gene. “Someday is today. And cars are vessels to freedom, just like my old LTD was for me. That’s why we put so much attention into selling our cars. Because to that customer at that moment, that’s the most important car in the world.”
Karen is Gene’s wife and business partner. “But my favorite job is being a mom,” she says. Her favorite hours are spent riding horses with her family, raising money for foster kids and listening to her daughter, Julia, sing.
The daughter of a career politician, Karen grew up in the spotlight. But she particularly enjoyed playing the xylophone her in high school and college marching bands.
One day, while working toward a Master's degree in broadcast journalism at Northwestern University, Karen went shopping at the nearby mall. As she rode the escalator, she was approached by an agent from Elite Modeling Management, one of the world’s most prestigious modeling agencies. Without a headshot to her name, the next summer she started her modeling career in Japan. “It was the wildest summer of my life,” says Karen. Her modeling career continued many years, even while holding down "regular" jobs.
“I liked it because it wasn’t high glam fashion,” she says. “It was catalogues and commercials, and playing roles like the Tide mom.”
Now, Karen works as Gene’s sounding board and creative go-to gal using her talents for everything from creating new branding for EZ Cars 101, to guiding the logo design for “Life on the Lot.”
Like Gene, Karen is enthusiastic, excited and open to new ideas and challenges. She is also shrewd, strategic and encouraging, often helping Gene get his bearings on a new deal or bouncing back from a tough day.
As they embark together on their next journey, “Life on the Lot,” Karen says she is “blown away by these funny, strange encounters we’ve had ever since we started EZ Cars 101. You just can’t make this stuff up.”
Julia is Gene and Karen’s 16-year-old daughter. She is into playing the piano, singing and scoring high grades in school. She as been actively competing in Hunter/Jumper horse shows throughout California since 2007. She depends on her horse, Armani Z, to help her impress the judges while jumping a complicated course of 3-foot fences. Soft-spoken and often shy, Julia is sweet and kind. She enjoys hanging out with her friends AND her parents. She is Karen’s best friend and the apple of Gene’s eye. Recently Julia unwittingly stopped her father’s heart with just three little words: “Meet my boyfriend.”
Linda is EZ Cars 101’s no-nonsense, spitfire general manager. Pretty and petite at just over five feet tall, Linda is a survivor. She has a soft heart, a hard head and an occasionally salty vocabulary, making her Gene’s ideal “lot wife,” wing man and foil.
Born and raised in Orange County, Linda was a single mom at 23 and already dealing with life head-on. She started her car business career as a service cashier (Dodge) but learned the business so quickly, she swiftly rose through the ranks to finance manager (Jeep, then Saturn), sales manager (Saturn), finally becoming a general manager for Saturn of San Diego.
After 17 years with Saturn, Linda's next career move was to join Gene and Karen to help jumpstart their wild new adventure, EZ Cars 101. Now married with four kids and three step kids, Linda brought her family with her to the new job. Daughter Ali works in the EZ Cars office and son Trevor is a lot boy.
When she’s not going head-to-head with Gene or keeping the lot boys in line, Linda can be found visiting the east coast (enjoying her obsession with New York City), riding her horse, Candy, or paddle-boarding on the ocean. But her favorite spot is hanging with her kids. “When they’re all over for dinner I’m in heaven,” she says. “Their laughter is the best.”
Ali is Linda’s pretty, 29-year-old daughter and the finance manager for EZ Cars 101. Her affectionate little Chihuahua, Gita, is the lot’s “mascot” and spends her time charming customers and posing for EZ Cars marketing materials. “The finance part of the car business is really fun,” says Ali. “Working with your mom…well, that can be challenging sometimes. But for the most part it works out. We have each other’s backs.” A licensed beautician for four years prior to her car career, Ali is currently a freshman at Mesa College in San Diego. In her spare time she loves to cook and relax on the beach watching her husband surf.
David is Gene’s mechanic and owns and operates a large, well-staffed shop called Welltech Auto Service. David arrived in the U.S. from Vietnam when he was a teenager with ten dollars in his pocket. A hard worker with a perennial smile on his face, David is the eternal optimist and the essence of the American Dream come true.
Kyle Holcolmb has been a lot boy at Ez Cars 101 for almost 2 years. He loves the relaxed work environment and feels like he is working with his "second family." Kyle looks at his fellow lot boys as a "brotherhood." The lot boys have done some crazy things on and off the Ez Cars 101 lot. Everyday they just try to have fun and stay out of trouble. At 20 years old, Kyle, originally from Orange County, now lives in downtown San Diego. He is is a junior at Mesa College in San Diego, studying Fire Technology. Kyle plans to enter the Fire Academy in two years and become a fireman. He spends his free time playing basketball and body surfing at the beach.
Background on the cast member’s role in the series and the part they play in day to day operations of the car lot or family will be detailed here. This is a great place to give Background on the cast member’s personal background as well if so desired.
Mark is Gene’s best friend and car detailer. A huge, gentle bear of a man, Mark is African American married to a Japanese woman and works two demanding jobs—managing the detail shop and working as a chauffeur—to support their three kids. Gene loves driving to Vegas with Mark or just hanging out with his big buddy.
