WHAT BEING A “GREEN SHOP” MEANS TO AL ORAMAS

Not all auto repair services are created equal, especially when some service go the extra mile to ensure their waste and materials are recycled in the most eco-friendly way possible. Not all auto repair services are created equal, especially when some businesses go the extra mile to ensure their waste and materials are recycled in the most eco-friendly way possible. Enter, Pro Auto Care! The Air Pollution Control Division in the State of Colorado mandates all auto repair shops operate under certain ethical practices with their chemical and hazardous waste removal. But beyond this mandate, it quickly becomes apparent that some shops look to cut expenses rather than proactively establish themselves as a steward of sustainability for the Colorado economy. We sat down with Pro Auto Care’s head honcho, Al Oramas, to hear what it means to him to be a green garage and the value it brings to Colorad ... read more

ROBERT T. NEEDED A CAR, SO WE GAVE HIM ONE!

ROBERT T. NEEDED A CAR, SO WE GAVE HIM ONE!

Robert has been doing everything he can to care for his wife Ruby through hard times! When we called to announce him as a winner, he informed us that his vehicle was no longer running… so instead of a set of tires, Pro Auto Care decided to give him a car! Robert works hard every day, sometimes traveling as far as Longmont, doing all he can to make the money his family needs. Robert’s wife Ruby is diabetic amongst many other disabilities, which results in her being hospitalized at least twice a month. Ruby had a back surgery last year and had just gotten out of knee surgery the day we announced him as a winner! Robert himself is in need of surgery but works through his pain to support Ruby! We couldn’t think of anyone that deserved a car and a fresh start more than Robert! His family was grateful and all of us at Pro Auto Care feel blessed that we got a chance to help in any way

A SPORT WAGON IN EVERY GARAGE | PART II

A SPORT WAGON IN EVERY GARAGE | PART II

Enter the minivan. In the early 80s it quickly filled the desire of new families to find a new way of carting their kids and accompanying paraphernalia around the neighborhood. Better in some ways than the classic family wagon but worse in so many others, the mini van’s tenure was ultimately much shorter than its predecessor. As the 90s approached, the SUV is on the horizon and it’ll leave the minivan burning in its path. I’m sure we don’t need to convince anyone that the SUV essentially took over as the default family vehicle in America. Just look around, you’re lucky to see one car for every 3 SUVs or trucks on the streets of Denver. This may have something to do with the extreme weather in our fair city, but the dominance is clear. So here we are. The craze has lasted a good 20 years and the auto market feels overdue for an adjustment. Again, today’s children look at their parents SUV, the way th ... read more

A SPORT WAGON IN EVERY GARAGE | PART I

A SPORT WAGON IN EVERY GARAGE | PART I

Some details: Manufacturers like Jeep are replacing both the Compass and Patriot with a new crossover platform for 2017 and Honda expects their new subcompact crossover, the HR-V to outperform its best selling Pilot next year. If you look at the concept cars popping up from American, Japanese and European manufacturers over the past few years, they’re all pointing at a more streamlined, efficient and compact vehicle. Of course, there are always exceptions, Lexus and Infinity continue to sell a ton of their LX and QX vehicles respectively with no plans to trim down– but at this point they are the exception rather than the rule. If this trend continues, where might we end up? Back to the beloved family wagon perhaps? Let’s take a look at why this might be the inevitable full-circle scenario starting with this snippet from Charles Moss at The Atlantic: “At one point in America’s automotive history ... read more

A SPORT WAGON IN EVERY GARAGE

 A SPORT WAGON IN EVERY GARAGE

The industry calls it “impact incompatibility” and it translates into the corners of your car not lining up with the corners of my SUV. This phenomenon was limited to tall trucks and oversized pickups until the 1990s when the Sport Utility Vehicle ruthlessly captured the American market. The statistics state that you are three times more likely to die in your car when hit by an SUV than you are when hit by another car. Because traditional SUVs are built on tall truck frames, they simply roll up and over your crumple zones and engine compartments rendering them useless to protect you. Moreover, unless you’ve been living under a sound proof rock for the past 20 years, you know that putting your fellow motorists at a disadvantage on the motorways is not the only downside of driving an SUV. High center of gravity leading to roll overs, poor visibility leading to back over deaths, poor handling and extr ... read more
