  • Car Care Tips: Car Covers

    Another way to take care of your car is to keep it covered up with  Car Covers. Whether it's rainy or sunny, a cover provides extra protection from the weather, and the thicker the cover, the more protection your vehicle has. Even if you keep your car or truck indoors, covers can still be useful for keeping dust and moisture out. Coverking makes three kinds of car covers: Coverguard, Triguard, and Coverbond 4, which have 1, 3, and 4 layers respectively. The Coverguard is soft and lightweight, while the Coverbond is thick enough to prevent minor nicks and dings, with the Triguard as a happy medium. Don't forget to take a look at the great Coverking accessories available to make car covers easier to use and store!

  • Happy April Fools Day

    Today is April Fools'' Day. Have any of you pulled any good pranks yet? Automakers have pulled their fair share of April Fools' jokes in the past.

    For example, do any of you remember last year's Subaru prank where they promoted upcoming free clinics to teach dogs how to drive? It spawned a series of commercials of dogs "driving" around in their Subarus and generated great feedback for the company. Of course they included a disclaimer, because as we all know, traveling dogs should be strapped in to rear seats or housed in dog boxes for safety. Owens manufactures dog boxes that will keep your pet safe and comfortable. The Owens Hunter line includes optional storage for any extras you may need while hunting. The K9 Transport line has multiple sizes or entry points so you can find the perfect fit for your dog and vehicle. There is also a do-it-yourself kit where you supply your own plywood and 2x2s to make your own dog box!

    There are also some instances where auto manufacturers probably wish they had been joking. In 1999, Plymouth engineers designed a hot rod car that yielded a lukewarm reception. The Plymouth Prowler only sold 8,100 vehicles in its entire run. If you are one of those lucky 8,100 Prowler owners, has some accessories to fit your car, like Highland's All-Weather Floor Mats. These mats are made from durable rubber so they are unaffected by gas, oil, and mud. They are pliable so they will not crack or stiffen in extreme temperatures. They use anti-skid spikes to prevent slipping and are available in black, grey, and tan.

  • Car Care Tip: Floor Mats

    While keeping your engine running smoothly is the most important step in maintaining your vehicle, don't forget to give a little TLC to the interior of your vehicle too. It's true that freshly vacuumed seats and floors won't get you anywhere (literally!) if your car or truck doesn't run. However, having a clean interior environment is definitely good for your state of mind and a well kept, stain-free inside also contributes to a higher resale value. Nifty Catch-All Premium Floor Mats protect the inside of your vehicle from stains and debris. They are custom molded to fit the exact contours of your vehicle's floors for the ultimate protection. They fit snugly and stay in place with a unique, patented protected snap system. These mats have plush OE nylon carpeting that provides a heavy-duty barrier from dirt, mud, snow, water, food, and liquid spills. They also have a raised lip to contain messes and prevent spillovers that are common with other products. The mats are stain resistant and easy to clean. They are available in black, grey, and tan. Center hump and cargo area mats are also available.
