Basic Car Maintenance

We love fixing cars but we also don’t want to see our customers waste money on repairs that could’ve been avoided with basic maintenance. And, surprisingly, many people aren’t aware of every item we would put on our list of the most basic things to check, maintenance and keep an eye on as a car owner.

Most Famous Movie Cars

We wanted to start 2016 off with some practical advice, but this month we thought we’d remind you that there’s more to cars than oil changes and miles per gallon. They can also be awesome! And what would better showcase that than going through some of our favorite famous movie cars, the ones that people looked at wide-eyed as kids, daydreaming about one day having a car like that. 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Yes, KITT. We can’t imagine growing up watching Knight Rider and not wanting to own a car like KITT. A sports car with almost extraterrestrial abilities who talks and thinks? What else could one possibly need? A car that can hold a conversation with you, make holograms, shoot missiles and carry groceries is all we want for any Christmas, ever. DeLorean DMC-12 If you’re of a certain age, not growing up wanting to own KITT means that you probably grew up wanting to own the ever-so-famous DeLorean from Back to the Future. Because if you can’t have a car that ta ... read more
