Classic Chevrolet Hits Grand Slam for Area Youth Baseball

Classic Chevrolet wraps up 2015 baseball season partnership with NTXBC Dirtbags

Classic Chevrolet, one of 37 Chevrolet dealers from the Dallas-Fort Worth area that partnered with local youth baseball leagues for the 2015 baseball program, has concluded a successful season with NTXBC Dirtbags. Classic Chevrolet  provided NTXBC Dirtbags with new equipment, a monetary contribution and an opportunity for community members to raise funds for the league via a Test Drive fundraiser.

“We’re glad we were able to extend Chevrolet’s commitment to spreading play and the possibilities it opens to the members of our community,” said Eric Hall.

Classic Chevrolet partnered with the NTXBC Dirtbags because of the league’s proximity to the dealership. Equipment donated by Classic Chevrolet included items such as bags, batting tees, catcher’s gear, water bottles and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship also included youth clinics featuring current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches, and instructors from Ripken Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association.

“We truly enjoyed being involved with NTXBC Dirtbags this year,” said Hall. “This partnership gave us the opportunity to support the love of the game and we are thrilled to have achieved such positive results for the community.”

In 2015, nearly 1,500 Chevrolet dealers participated in Chevy Youth Baseball. Since the program began in 2006, Chevrolet has made a positive impact on more than 3.6 million children by bringing a unique experience to their community.

You Know You’re From Texas When…

6-10-2015-YouKnowYoureFromTX

If you are in the market for a new vehicle, stop by Classic Chevrolet to test drive the vehicle you need for your family, for work or for the farm. If you already have a newer Chevy or did not plan to buy something new this year, be sure to give our service department a call to set up an appointment for maintenance or repairs.

You know you’re from Texas if:

  • You actually know someone who ate a 72-ounce steak and got it for free – or if you were the one who managed to eat it all.
  • You go to a formal event all decked out, including your finest jewelry and you wear cowboy boots.
  • You know that food that isn’t spicy isn’t from Texas.
  • You know that rattlesnake meat tastes like chicken.
  • You know the four basic food groups and make sure you get them every day: barbecue, nachos, fajitas, and chili.
  • You can tell when another Texan is from the North, East, South, West or Central Texas as soon as that person speaks.
  • Your pastor wears cowboy boots.
  • You know that the only real Mexican food is Tex-Mex.
  • When you refer to more than one person, you say, “Y’all.”
  • When you tell someone you’re getting ready to do something, you say you’re ‘fix’n’ to do it.
  • You know that Classic Chevrolet is the place to go if you need a new car or truck.

Keep Your Chevy In Tip-Top Shape This Summer

6-8-2015-TipTopShape

Whether you already have a Chevy or you just bought one from Classic Chevrolet, you need to do a little work to keep it in tip-top shape during the summer months. The sun and the weather will eventually damage the interior and the paint. If you take just a few steps every month, your vehicle will look like new even when it has tons of miles on it.

Bad Weather

Nothing trashes a vehicle more than hail. Summer storms often bring hail; and whether it is small or large, it will damage your vehicle. If you know bad weather that might bring hail or high winds that will knock down trees is coming, get your vehicle inside if possible. If you have no way of storing your Chevy in a garage and a hail storm is coming, cover it with thick blankets. That will keep smaller hail from putting a billion dents in your vehicle.

Sun

The sun’s ultraviolet rays are extremely destructive to the interior and exterior of your vehicle. Using a sunshade in the windshield or keeping your vehicle inside whenever possible helps alleviate ultraviolet ray damage.

Additionally, you should condition the interior with the appropriate products for the dash, leather seats and other materials in the vehicle. Wash your vehicle at least one per month – and more if you get tons of mud on it. Wax your Chevy at least every three months. If you keep a good coat of wax on the paint, the sun’s rays will do less damage.

Interior Detailing

Vacuum the carpets frequently. Even if you have floor mats, which is a good idea, sand and liquid can get into the carpets and will eventually ruin them. The floor mats also protect your carpets from the sun’s rays – the carpet will fade if it’s not protected. Keeping dirt from getting ground into the carpets also lengthens the life and keeps them looking new.

Visit Classic Chevrolet

Stop by Classic Chevy to test drive a new vehicle if you are ready for something new and exciting this summer. If you are not quite ready, be sure to call us to set up a service appointment for maintenance – engine maintenance is just as important as protecting your Chevy from the elements.
