3 BEST RACING MOVIES OF ALL TIME

The only thing that’s better than being a race car driver is settling in for the night and watching a racing themed movie. In fact, it’s such a great way to spend a weekend, we’ve put together a quick roundup of our all-time top three favorite racing movies. 1. The Cannonball Run The Cannonball Run is one of the best racing movies of all time, largely because it features such an all-star cast in a fun comedy based on a cross-country illegal race. It debuted in 1981 and starred Burt Reynolds, Farrah Fawcett, Roger Moore, Dean Martin, Terry Bradshaw, and Sammy Davis Jr. Also, it’s supposed to be loosely based on real life events. 2. Gone in Sixty Seconds Starring Nicholas Cage, Gone in Sixty Seconds was a blockbuster hit in 2000. Cage plays a car thief who’s retired, but is forced ... read more

4 TRAITS OF A GREAT AUTO MECHANIC

Auto Mechanic Finding a great auto mechanic can be a difficult process (if you haven’t already found Pro Auto Care, that is!). We understand that trusting a stranger with your vehicle is no easy thing, and there’s a level of comfort and trust that you need to have with your auto mechanic in order to have a great working relationship. There are some traits, though, that serve as a great indicator of a trustworthy, professional, and overall great auto mechanic. Here are four of them. 1. Great Communication Skills If anything can strain a relationship – both personal and professional – it’s a lack of communication. Because working with automobiles is a very technical job, an auto mechanic that doesn’t properly explain the issues that are happening with your car, along with potential solutions, is going to have a hard time helping the customer understand what’s going on with his vehicle. A great auto mechanic understands that there may be a technical gap, and works hard to ... read more

HERE’S HOW TO GET A GREAT DEAL ON YOUR CAR INSURANCE

Car Insurance Quote Owning a vehicle isn’t cheap. Purchasing a vehicle or starting a new car lease is just the tip of the iceberg. There’s also gas, regular maintenance, and car insurance to think about. And if there’s one thing that can significantly jack up your monthly payments, it’s getting a not-so-great rate on your car insurance. Here’s how to make sure that doesn’t happen. 1. Figure out What Type of Coverage you Need. Many people opt solely for liability coverage, which covers you if you’re at fault for an accident. Some situations, however, require that you have full coverage – which is more expensive. For instance, if you’re leasing a car or if you’re required to take out an additional warranty on your vehicle, you’re probably going to be required to have full coverage on your vehicle for the duration that you lease it or have the warranty. Once you know what type of insurance coverage you need, you can move on to the next step. 2. Check for Discount P ... read more

PRO AUTO SPONSORED CAR TAKES HOME SUPER SERIES CHAMPIONSHIPS!

We’re excited to announce that Pro Auto’s sponsored car recently took home the NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) Super Series Championships! Driven by Ted Romero, the 1996 Chevy Camaro has a LT1 350 engine and produces over 500 horsepower. Check out some of the photos from the race below. Romero got lucky in the second and third round with his opponent breaking on the starting line in the 2nd and a bye in the third. That allowed him to get the car ironed out a little more and figure out his dial. Things started to fall into place after qualifying. There was a large holeshot in the final and it would have run right on the dial in the final. It turned out to be a great day. Super Serie ... read more

If you’re in the market for a new vehicle and are looking to downgrade from a large SUV, a crossover might be your best bet. But which ones are worth looking at? Here are our four favorite crossover SUV models that will give you the most bang for your buck. 1.
