Gift a Car for Christmas!

Tuesday, December 18th, 2018

In just one week, it will be Christmas! Think of that special someone in your life that deserves the world. You might not be able to get them a mansion or yacht, but you can still give them a gift that they will remember and appreciate for the rest of their lives…. Yes we are talking about a car! We know what you’re thinking, “A car for Christmas?! That’s crazy!”, but actually it doesn’t have to be a huge, crazily expensive ordeal. Check out some of these reasons why buying a car for a gift is a good idea!

Not As Expensive As You Think

Buying a car is certainly not a cheap gift, but it doesn’t have to break the bank either. Instead of looking at the most expensive models, choose a used model. It won’t cost near as much as a brand new vehicle! Here at Drive Casa, we have great quality vehicles for very affordable prices! Don’t have any credit or have bad credit? We will still finance you!

Less Pressure

Literally anyone would be happy to get a car as a gift regardless of the style. But if you are still trying to find the “perfect” gift, take them shopping instead. You could trick them and ask them to help you look for a car, or announce on Christmas morning that you plan to take them to the dealership later in the week to pick out their own car.

Less Crowded

If you were to attempt to go into a mall or any department store in the next month,  you’d find lines that trail on forever. Since not everyone is going to buy loved ones a car for Christmas, you won’t have to deal with the hassle of crowds! This may seem like a small benefit, but can save you a lot of frustration and time wasted in the long run!

We completely understand that giving a car for Christmas is not for everyone. But if you have the means to do so, and you have an incredibly special person in your life, it might be the perfect gift! Christmas will be here soon, and getting someone a car will certainly amp up the spirit of giving! To browse our inventory today, just visit our website!

Pumpkin Carving Tips

Friday, October 19th, 2018

Want to wow your neighbors and family with the perfect pumpkin? We have your back! Continue reading to learn how to carve a pumpkin like a pro!

Choose Your Pumpkin Wisely 

Most of us shop for the roundest and smoothest pumpkin. Don’t be afraid to get one that’s more visually interesting or even misshaped—as long as it doesn’t have any soft spots. If you have a pattern in mind that you want to carve, bring it with you. That way you can find the pumpkin that suits the shape of the pattern you’re going to carve.

Use Household Tools

No need to buy a pumpkin carving kit, just use household items! For detailed work, you can use paring knives or some precision razor blades. Lemon zesters are also great for varying textures on your pumpkin and melon ballers are useful for hollowing out a pumpkin or to create scooped-out balls that can later be pinned onto a pumpkin as eyes. Scrubber sponges are also optimal for smoothing out the surface of the pumpkin!

Do Not Cut the Top Open

Don’t cut your pumpkin open from the stem, it makes it much harder to clean out! Instead, cut your pumpkin open from the bottom. When you pull the plug out, half the seeds and other gunk will automatically come out- which makes it much easier to clean.

Clean Thoroughly

Scrape the walls of your pumpkin with a big metal spoon until they are an inch thick. How can you tell when you’ve scraped enough? Tape your template onto the pumpkin from the start and add thumbtacks all around the pattern. That way when you’re scraping down the inside, you can feel exactly when the thickness is right.

Practice Patience

As you carve, do not pull pieces out while you go. This will preserve the stability of the pumpkin and keep it from breaking. Once you are finished carving completely, reach into the inside and gently poke the pieces out of the pumpkin. This will allow the pieces to come out way easier!

We hope these ideas have your creative juices flowing! We would love to see your own spooktacular pumpkins, so please share them in the comments below!

Relationship Between Your Down Payment & Your Monthly Payment

Drive Casa Down & Monthly Car Payments

Are you planning on buying a used car within the next month or so? If so, here are a few things you should know before purchasing a used vehicle, especially if you have bad credit or no credit.

DOWN PAYMENT

Your down payment is a very important part of the deal. Having a higher down payment not only helps keep your monthly payments affordable. It also usually gives you a larger selection of used cars, trucks or SUVs to choose from. Not to mention, your down payment lowers the total amount financed. So a larger down payment saves you on interest and finance charges. Quite simply, the larger the down payment, the more you save in the long run (your term). (more…)
