Whether you’ve always wanted a tough-offing pick up, a speed racecar, a classic car, or even just the latest sedan at its highest trim level, we’ve all got that one car that we see when close our eyes at night. Well, Toyota wanted to figure out just what sorts of cars kids, their future buyers, were dreaming about so they decided to have an international Dream Car Art Contest.
This art contest has three categories: under 8 years old, 8-11 years old, and 12-15 years old. The entries for all three categories were judged based on artistry, individuality, and execution.
“These are genuine works of art,” said Cheech Marin, actor and art collector. “I can easily imagine these Dream Cars on the walls of a gallery or someone’s home. To see such talent coming from our nation’s children is truly an inspiration, and I look forward to seeing what these artists will create in the future.”
Check out the artwork produced by the United States Winners who are moving onto the final rounds of the contest in Toyota’s flickr album and check back with us at Haddad Toyota to keep up to date with all the latest Toyota news!
With all the horrible weather we’ve had already this year, you probably have driving in snow down to an art by now, but here’s a short list of a few tips of how to drive in snow just as a short refresher. It’s always good to occasionally look through a list of these tips to get a good idea of what we all can do to better keep ourselves and everyone else on the roads around Pittsfiled, North Adams, and Springfield as safe as possible during these harsh winter months.
Get Winter Tires – while the season may be over halfway through (we hope), skidding along the roads is no joke. Getting snow tires may help you grip the slick pavement better.
Drive Slowly – getting to work or practice on time is not a fair exchange for your safety and the safety of others on the road.
Give yourself plenty of time to stop – try to stop at least a full car’s length behind the car in front of you. This way, even if you do skid some, you have some room to give before you hit them.
Just follow these 3 tips for winter driving and hopefully it will keep you safe until spring. In the meantime, check out our four-wheel-drive cars at Haddad Toyota to help ensure that you will stay safe on the snowy roads out there.
Haddad Toyota – a Western MA Toyota Dealership located in Berkshire County – has been named a 2013 Toyota President’s Award winner for the sixth year in a row. The award recognizes Toyota dealerships who meet the highest standards for parts and sales, service, management, and customer satisfaction, and is generally only awarded to the top 10 to 15% of the Toyota dealerships in the country.
“This award is really a tribute to the people at our dealership—our team—and their dedication to our customers,” said George Haddad, owner of Haddad Toyota. “It’s because of them that Toyota is the No. 1 car brand in Berkshire County.”
Recognizing the importance of their teamwork is Eddie Torres, Toyota’s district manager for the area, who has worked with the group for more than 14 years. He says that the award isn’t one that just honors the dealership, it also recognizes the contribution of every individual who works for Haddad Toyota.
“I visit a lot of dealerships throughout the region and Haddad Toyota always comes straight to mind when I stress the importance of putting customers first,” said Torres.
