Whether you just bought or leased a new vehicle from Classic Chevy or you have a newer Chevy and are not ready for something new just yet, you’ll want to add some car accessories for the winter. Some accessories protect your vehicle and some are just handy to have during the winter, especially if it snows.
You may have carpeted floor mats in your Chevy now, but during the winter, you should have rubber floor mats to protect the carpet from melting snow and slush on your feet. And, at some point, the snow and ice will melt, giving way to mud, which will eventually stain the carpets, especially if you have clay.
An ice scraper with a brush comes in handy on snowy mornings or even mornings that have a heavy frost. Instead of waiting for the defroster to melt everything, you can give it a hand by scraping the frost, ice or snow from the windshield. You’ll be ready to go by the time your Chevy warms up; and you’ll be safe because of better visibility.
Even if you park in a garage at home and at work, you should have an ice scraper and brush. If it starts to snow while you are shopping or parked elsewhere in an open lot, that brush and scraper will come in handy.
Plug-in Coffee Cup
The last thing you need on a long commute on a cold day is cold coffee, tea or hot cocoa. Instead of having your hot drink cool off too fast, get a coffee cup that plugs into the cigarette lighter so you have a hot drink all the way to your destination.
Most people don’t think of this, but carrying a come-a-long and some extra chain in the trunk could get you out of a bind. If you end up sliding off the road, you’ll be able to pull yourself out of the ditch. You can attach the come-a-long to a tree or another vehicle if someone stops to help you out.

When you pick up your new vehicle from Classic Chevrolet, you may need some new pet accessories to go with it. Depending on your pet and your pet’s age, you may need seat covers, ramps, harnesses, car seats and more. Once you pick up your vehicle, you’ll know what you’ll need to help your pet get in and out and to allow your pet to ride safely.
Pet ramps help your pet get in and out of your vehicle if your pet has a hard time jumping in or out of lower vehicles or if your vehicle is just too high for your pet to safety jump in or out. When choosing a pet ramp, be sure to pick a ramp that is ideal for your dog’s weight. If your dog is still a puppy, choose a ramp that will hold your dog’s adult weight.
It’s never a good idea to let your pet roam loose in the vehicle. So many things could happen such as your pet climbing over the seat and distracting you or causing an accident; or your pet getting hurt if you get into an accident. Car seats allow you to keep your pet harnessed in one spot and helps to keep it from getting hurt in an accident.
Use a car harness to hold your pet in place with or without a car booster seat. The harness keeps your pet from being flung forward should you have to hit the brakes fast or should you get into an accident. The harness also keeps your pet from climbing over the front seat and causing an accident.
Rear Seat Hammock
Install a rear seat hammock to minimize pet hair in your vehicle. Sometimes pet hair just won’t come out of the upholstery no matter how much you vacuum. The hammock hooks to the back of the front seats and to the top of the rear seat to protect the rear seat and the backs of the front seats.

When you buy a Silverado at Classic Chevrolet, you have several trim levels from which to choose. That in itself makes it somewhat your own, but you can really make your Silverado unique by adding accessories. Chevrolet has tons of accessories so that you can “build” a special truck.
For the Bed and Cargo Management

For further cargo management, add hitch-mounted carriers or tie-down rings. Ladder racks and tow hooks are also available for the Silverado 1500. Perimeter bed lighting also helps you see what you are doing at night.
Interior – Storage and Electronics
If you need additional interior storage, add a front console insert or under seat storage. Add additional audio accessories, remote start a wireless network interface and even a DVD system that resides in the head restraint.
Exterior accessories really make your truck stand out. Not only is it different from other Silverado 1500 models, but adding accessories may make it easier to spot in a sea of parked vehicles. Assist steps and bed step are not only functional, but they look great, too.
Bodyside molding packages change the look of your truck as do custom graphics. You can even change the door handles and add emblems if you want. Additional accessories include fender flares, license plate holders, molded splash guards, window deflectors, molded hood protectors, tubular assist steps and outside rearview mirror covers.

Pick up a bed extender to add an extra 2 feet to the bed of your truck. These come in handy when you need to haul 8-foot lumber in a 6-foot bed. The bed extender fits over the open tailgate and keeps things from falling out of the bed.
Bedliners and mats keep the inside of the bed from being scratched up from the things you haul. They also keep things from sliding around in the back.
If you add a toolbox to your bed, you may want to add a bed step so that you can reach into the center of the box without having to climb in the bed of the truck.
One of the neatest accessories for a Silverado, especially if you like to camp or go hunting, is a sport tent. The tent is water- resistant and converts the bed into a camper. The tent features a waterproof floor and is made specifically for the Silverado bed.
Cars have limited space so a roof rack is a good addition if you are constantly trying to cram big things in the back seat or the cargo area. Choose from cargo management items to better organize the trunk, remote start if your vehicle didn’t come equipped with it, license plate holders, a spoiler kit, window deflectors and splash guards.

If the Chevy truck owner on your list seems to have trouble keeping cargo in its place, consider a rear underseat storage organizer for extended cabs. Not only does it keep cargo in place, but it also hides it from prying eyes. A front floor console organizer also keeps things in place; and it converts the tall bin into a double-tiered storage compartment. A stowage bag for the front center console keeps documents clean and safe – and is great for those who still use paper maps.

It is an exciting feeling buying a new car. You sit inside and breathe in the new car smell. You run your hands along the steering wheel feeling the smoothness of the leather. It’s then you make a solemn vow to always keep it looking, feeling and smelling new. But how does one keep it looking like it just rolled off the lot? First thing’s first. You have to make sure it is clean inside and out! A car with a well maintained exterior and interior is a fast way to making your car feel like new again.
Give your Chevy a good scrub down at least once a week. Detail your car every other month or so. That is to say, shampoo all upholstery and carpets and even cleaning all the grime from the engine bay. Freshly cleaned and polished wheels are quick and easy ways to improve appearance too. Avoid washing your car in direct sunlight or in hot weather. Instead, wash your car close to dusk with ample shade. This will prolong the life of your paint. Also be sure to use proper vehicle soap and drying cloths. Never let your car simply air dry. Doing this will leave unwanted streaks and water spots which could lead to rusting areas.
At the same time, you can make sure your headlights stay clear and bright by using cleaners to rid of any yellowing. Change any worn out rubber seals or strips on your car including your wiper blades. Be sure to regularly replace brakes, shocks and springs that are designed to wear out and degrade your performance. Once you’ve completed all these small tips, your car should be looking and feeling like new!

Chevrolet has had a banner year in 2012 and has more unique vehicles than ever before. Much of the attention has been drawn to the Chevy Volt, the much anticipated electric car, but Chevy still makes some of the best trucks and full sized sports utility vehicles on the road today. Next time you’re at your Dallas Chevy dealer, look into more than just the new and old cars they have on the lot—check out the accessories. All lines of cars have them but there are some incredibly useful ones from Chevrolet that every dealer will have in stock or be able to easily order for you. Check out the three most useful Chevy accessories listed below.
CHEVY GRILL GUARDS
If you have one of those aforementioned Chevy trucks or full-sized SUVs then chances are you take your automobile off the beaten path at least every once in a while. If this is the case, purchasing and installing a grille guard for your Chevy could come in handy. These heavy metal frames will protect the front of your car in case you run into a tree, bush or animal who darts into your path as you traverse any rugged terrain. The cost of this will be much cheaper than any front end damage that may occur if you hit something.
CHEVY ROOF RACKS
Roof racks are incredibly useful for people who are outdoorsy and need extra space to haul equipment for their adventures. These roof racks can haul ski and snowboard gear, surfing gear, camping gear and just about any other type of equipment that can be squeezed into a case that will attach to a roof rack on top of your Chevy. Best of all, these roof racks are adjustable, so they will work with many different types of cases and ways to rig items to the roof of your automobile.
While these are accessories that are only meant for Chevy trucks, they are something that every Chevy truck owner should have as an option. The Tonneau cover will lock over the bed of a Chevy pick-up truck to turn it into a large, secure trunk that no one can access without a key. This allows your truck to become an even more versatile hauling machine, allowing you to put valuable items in the back of the Chevy and feel safe leaving them. This cover also makes the Chevy pick-ups more aerodynamic, saving gas mileage when they are left on. If you don’t want the cover over your bed, it literally takes a minute to remove and store safely in your garage. There are a wide variety of these bed covers, ranging in size and spaciousness. Once you have used them for a while though, beware: you might buy a covered cab for the back of your Chevy truck so you have the option to bed down in it when you are out in the wild. That is, if that’s your thing.
