The gift-giving season is upon us — and here at Amistad Motors, we’d like to make your shopping a little simpler. Here are a few of our favorite car enthusiast gift ideas for that hard-to-please person on your list.
Starting Nov. 29 and running throughout December, downtown
Odessa will be home to Winterfest. This collection of holiday events will be
fun for the entire family and will feature a parade of lights, a visit from
Santa, and a Merry-achi holiday fiesta. All events will be free to the public,
so mark your calendar now.
Each year, the Odessa Board of Realtors hosts the annual
Christmas Tour of Homes. This event is a great opportunity to see the area in a
whole new way and experience some of the best holiday decorating around. Best
of all, the proceeds go to a scholarship fund at Odessa College, so be sure to
turn up for this one. This year’s event will be held on Dec. 8.
This year, celebrate New Year’s Eve in Roaring ’20s style at
the Garage in Fort Stockton. At this themed party, you can ring in the new year
at 10 p.m. with the whole family or stick it out past midnight for the crowning
of the 2020 king and queen.
Our staff here at Amistad Motors wishes you a happy holiday
season, and we hope to see you out at one of these joyous community events.
Are you planning a tailgate party for the big game? Follow these tips to make your gathering a fun and memorable event for everyone involved.
Organized and Clean
A clean tailgate party is a happy tailgate
party. If you’re bringing raw meat to grill, transport it in a separate cooler
to protect the rest of your food and drinks from any leaks. Also, use gloves
when you grill to avoid cross-contamination.
and Break Down Early
Maximize your tailgating time by showing up
early to get a good spot and breaking down early so you’ll have plenty of time
to watch the game. Make sure you pack the grill so it’s easy to get out and
Timing is important at tailgate parties.
That’s why you want to make sure the food is quick and convenient to eat.
Finger foods make it possible to stand, eat, talk, and drink at the same time.
Out for Guests
Are your guests pregaming responsibly? If it
seems like some attendees have had a few too many drinks, don’t be afraid to
pull the host card and cut them off. You want everyone else to enjoy the party
and the game, too.
With these tips, you’ll be prepared to host a great gathering. And if you’re in need of a tailgate for your tailgate party, stop in at Amistad Motors and drive home one of the many outstanding Chevrolet and Buick vehicles our lot.
This engine, a 3.0-liter inline-six, cranks
out 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, Silverado diesel
models can tow up to 9,300 pounds and handle a payload of up to 1,870 pounds.
The Duramax® turbo-diesel is just as efficient
as it is strong. In recent testing by the EPA, two-wheel-drive Silverado diesel
models achieved 23 mpg in the city and an outstanding 33 mpg on the highway.*
Four-wheel-drive models got 23 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.*
Compare those numbers to the Silverado’s
diesel competitor, the Powerstroke-equipped Ford F-150. The 2WD diesel F-150
gets just 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg, and the 4WD model gets only 20 mpg in
the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
Not only does the Silverado 1500’s diesel
engine top the competition, it also delivers better fuel efficiency than many
family cars, including the Toyota Camry and Subaru Legacy.
The diesel-equipped 2020 Silverado 1500 will be arriving soon at Amistad Motors, where you can experience its capabilities for yourself with a test drive.
