Car Clubs – Which One is Right for You?

Are you a person that can’t get enough of cars? Whether you are into classics, sports or luxury cars a car club might be right for you, but which one would be the BEST FIT? If you are unfamiliar with car clubs, it’s basically a community of people that share a common interest in all sorts of vehicles. Car Clubs can be organized by enthusiasts around a type of car, brand or similar interest. Now the only questions is, which car club is right for you?

911Tracker Car Clubs

Traditional Car Clubs 

The more traditional clubs historically have been off line. Just like most clubs there are membership fees which vary from club to club. Once you join you get benefits such as support including messages from members, service and parts advice and sale items. Traditional car clubs also have meets which are for members and those interested in becoming a member. Members can participate in races, cruising and shows. It’s a great way for people with the same interests to come together.

Traditional car clubs were historically “off line” but now with mass online media and support they have now added a online presence. This would be a great way for those interested in different clubs to get a closer look at what the club has to offer without leaving their sofa.

Internet Car Clubs 

As our lives continue to get busier and busier  and with the rage of the internet and social media car clubs have moved online. These online communities can attract a large number of members. Unlike traditional clubs, the content is open to all and for free. It’s a great resource for people looking to purchase a certain car or for newbie enthusiasts.

Just as traditional clubs internet communities provide forums and content about vehicle specifications, driving characteristics, repair information and photo sharing. Since the club can have members from anywhere you have a larger reach if you are trying to purchase or sell a particular vehicle or looking for a certain part for your vehicle. Members will also have the opportunity to easily get information and links to YouTube videos and Podcasts that you normally wouldn’t of heard of.

So now you have a choice to make. Are you interested in more of a traditional car club or love being online so would a internet club be your first choice. Whatever choice you make know that you will have many opportunities to educate yourself about your vehicle, meet individuals with the same interests and learn new ways you can take care of your vehicle through a community.

Finding Interesting Things for Your Car

Car clubs are great for discovering new things for your car.  Other members are often coming up with new ways to make a car more comfortable for a long drive, improve the appearance, or enhance the safety & security such as a device that alerts you of a theft and connects you to 911 closest to your car.

Whether you are a car enthusiast looking to take your hobby to the next level by joining a car club or a individual wanting to keep your family and vehicle safe at all times  our T3 GPS Device is perfect for any car owner. Now, you can have a chance to win one because EVERY MINUTE COUNTS!

Road Trips – Essentials When Traveling with Kids

Road Trips with KidsAs the school year draws to a close we begin to think about summer vacations. At least once throughout the summer families take some sort of road trip. Whether you are traveling just for a few hours or days, there are things you will want to have in your vehicle when traveling with children.

 

Road Trips – Essentials When Traveling with Kids

Bathroom Supplies – You never know when one of your kids (or yourself) will need to go to the bathroom. You could be on the road with no bathroom in site for miles. Make sure you have a few rolls of toilet paper, paper towel, wipes on hand in case you need to stop on the side of the road. These items also will work out well to clean the kiddos up after eating or if they get sick in the car.

Travel Games – Having some compact travel games on hand that the kids can do themselves is key to a more peaceful ride. They are also easy to store in the pocket behind the seat so the kids can grab a game when they want to.

Healthy Foods – Having foods on hand is a great way to save money and time while traveling. Pack a cooler with your favorite healthy snacks and drinks. You can even pack a lunchbox for each child with their food options, this will limit auguring among the siblings.

Electronics – Nothing entertains children more than movies or a tablet where they can play games or read books. If you don’t have a built in DVD unit in your vehicle you can get a Dual DVD player for under $200 which work very well. You can also limit the time they are on these devices so they can time to do other things.

Books – Purchase some books that the kids can read during the road trip. If you are heading to a new state or town that you have never been before try to find books that are age appropriate so they can learn more about their vacation spot.

Safety Kits – You never know what mishaps will happen during a road tip, plus you want to stay safe when you get to our destination. This Travel-Tot Kit gives you all the necessary equipment for you to childproof hotel rooms or even grandma’s house. The kit includes; finger pinch guard, electrical outlet plug covers, foam corner guards, door knob cover, cord wind-up, sliding door lock, cabinet lock, multi-purpose straps, water thermometer, bandages, forehead thermometer, and “shhh, Travel-Tot sleeping” door hanger.

We hope these tips help make your road trips less stressful. What are some of your favorite road trip tips when traveling with kids?

To make your road trip go even smoother we are giving away a $60 Gas Card and a Travel First Aid Kit. With these items you will save money while on the road and have peace of mind that you will be prepared on your road trip.

Classic Car Theft on the Rise

classic car protectionClassic Car theft is on the rise, so much so that the police created a network to help recover these stolen vehicles.  Stolen classic cars are happening throughout the United States but is more prevalent in Southern California.

Classic cars are targeted because they are easy to sell overseas. People would pop them in containers and ship them overseas and a lot of them were a “for order situation”.  Classic cars are worth much more than the average new vehicle and most times the classic car is one of a kind.

Most of the time when a classic call is stolen it’s never found because of the lacking built in security system that newer cars have.  For that reason classic cars are far more difficult to track.

There are a few things you can do to protect your classic vehicle from being stolen.

Classic Car Protection

Keep Verifiable Records – Be sure the VIN and title information match that of your car.  Something like this that is overlooked, could create huge problems later if your vehicle is ever stolen, and law enforcement is attempting to recover it.

Be Smart At Car Shows – When visiting car shows, or even taking your classic car out for a spin around the neighborhood, make it a habit to check your rear view mirror!  Professional car thieves actually go to these events in search of their next target.

Be Careful When Selling – When selling your classic car be wary of the payment method, 150 cashier’s checks is not the best way to except payment because they could be bogus. The best payment options would be wire transfer.

Trust You Mechanic –   If you take your classic vehicle for restoration to a body shop, or mechanic make sure they have a good security system so your vehicle is protected at all times.

Embrace Technology – Since classic cars do not have built in security system you need to install something that you feel will protect your vehicle while not in use. There are many choices to choose from especially our own T3 Tracker. You can now save when purchasing a tracker which saves you $95.
