 Happy Thanksgiving Banner Clip Art 1

The Holidays are Here

It's the time of year to reflect on the good things we have. I believe that, whether large or small, there is always something to be grateful for. Whether it be gratitude for the sunshine, a friendly stranger, the people you love, or your favorite mechanic ;). Now is the time of year that we slow down, and enjoy what good things we have. This holiday season, I hope that all of you are surrounded by things that bring you joy. May you all have love, peace, and full bellies this Thanksgiving.

Heading South for the winter?

Heading South for the winter comes with its own challenges. At Petty Motorworks, we have you covered. You should have your vehicle checked before you leave and consider a Battery Tender to prevent you vehicles battery from going dead while you are away.  We have Battery Tenders in stock and they are ready to be installed.   The Battery Tender and a complete Vehicle Health Report are less then a battery replacement so give us a call today. 

Don't Get Stuck In The Cold

Most vehicle break downs can be prevented with a proper inspection and routine maintenance.  We offer a free Vehicle Health Report that includes a battery test.  Give us a call to set up an appointment and we can make sure you are ready for winter. 



Napa Easy Pay Financing



Napa Easy Pay is a 6 month no interest if paid in full offer.  What a better way to break up the cost of your new tires or any repair into six payments without interest. I recommend getting your card today just incase you are faced with an expensive repair.  This way you can budget your payments over 6 months and if paid in full there will be no interest.  Click Here To Apply

Napa Gold Certified Auto Care Center

I am proud to say that we were the first Napa Gold Certified Auto Care Center in New Jersey and that our work carries a 3 year 36,000 mile Nation Wide Warranty.  It is very difficult to receive this certification and even a year after the program was released there is still only a handful of Gold Certified shops in New Jersey. 

Computer Programming

Does your car shift strangely or is it hard to start, maybe the fuel efficiency is off, all of these things plus many more can be related to an updated computer program for you vehicle.  Most vehicles today have more than twenty computer modules, and most can have the software updated just like your computer at home.  At Petty Motorworks we have been bringing on more and more computer programming capabilities and we currently have the ability to do software updates and computer replacements on General Motors, Ford, Nissan, and Subaru and we are adding more and more as time goes on (soon to add Honda, Toyota, and Chrysler).  So if you have a strange symptom that can not be explained, let us take a look and see if there is an update available that may address your concern.  

Fun Facts

1. Historians have no record of turkey being eaten at the first Thanksgiving.

Instead, "ducks, geese, and swans" are believed to have been served to the English settlers and Native Americans.

2. Benjamin Franklin wished the turkey was the national bird.

In a letter to his daughter, Benjamin Franklin wrote, "For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country...For the Truth the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird."

 

3. The first Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade had Central Park Zoo animals.

Held in 1924, the first parade included monkeys, bears, camels, and elephants borrowed from the Central Park Zoo instead of the traditional character balloons we know today.
 

4. The first professional Thanksgiving Day football game was played 1920.

A century ago, Thanksgiving Day fell on November 25 and there were six football games played, according to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
 

5. "Jingle Bells" was originally a Thanksgiving Day song.

Before becoming a Christmas anthem, "Jingle Bells" was an 1857 song titled "One Horse Open Sleigh," and its composer, James Pierpont, intended it to be a Thanksgiving Day song.
 

Have a happy Thanksgiving, from Petty Motorworks!

October Newsletter

 


Fall Is Here

With autumn here, I am shocked at the speed in which this year is passing. As the weather starts to cool down, I am finding gratitude for the slowness of fall. Soon, the trees will be turning red and the comfort food will be on the table. I like to find small things to be grateful for, even when the circumstances are grim. We hope that everyone enjoys the ability to return to the community, and also continues to follow CDC guidelines to keep our vulnerable populations safe and healthy.

Employee Spotlight

    I would like to take a moment to share with you an employee who joined our team shortly after we opened.  Chris Cusimano joined our team in early 2017 as a part-time employee while he was still attending the nationally ranked Automotive Training Center (ATC) in Bucks County PA.  Chris's commitment to his passion was obvious by is daily commute to his school in PA. His story on how he joined us was a little unique as he really didn't come in looking for a job.  I have been a technical training instructor for over 25 year and when I was introduced to Chris I quickly realized that he was a keeper and just told him to meet me Saturday morning to start his new Saturday job and I still remember the shocked look in his face.  I told him that when he graduates we would talk about putting him on full time.  I called a personal friend of mine who happened to be one of Chris's instructors and was assured that my gut feelings about Chris were dead on.  Chris is a graduate of Southern Regional Highschool and lives right here in Waretown. He graduated with honors in June of 2017 from ATC and has been a key part of Petty Motorworks ever since. I am very proud of Chris's growth and I enjoy mentoring him every day.  He has pass several of his ASE automotive certifications and is working to be a Master ASE Technician. 
    
    Chris comes from a long line of hands on people in his family.  His father and grandfather both worked as mechanics and Chris enjoys helping his grandfather work on his 1970's,right hand drive, Mini Cooper that his grandfather raced in Italy.  Chris also enjoys boating, fishing and snow boarding with his family.

Fun Facts

 #1. Walmart has a lower acceptance rate than Harvard.

Harvard might be hard to get into with a 4.5 percent admittance rate, but try this on for size: only 2.6 percent of Walmart applicants are accepted.

 

#2. There is a technical name for the "fear of long words."

It's called "hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia."

 

#3. Hunting unicorns is legal in Michigan.

Lake Superior State University in Michigan offers a unicorn hunting license. Unsurprisingly, the "chief herald of the Unicorn Hunters" was once quoted saying: "The pursuit of the unicorn is a lonely quest." We wish them nothing but good luck!

 

#4. Someone actually paid $10,000 for invisible artwork.

An art collector once paid $10,000 for a "non-visible" sculpture created by actor James Franco. The artwork was billed as an "endless tank of oxygen." Um, yeah… it's called air. We're breathing some now… for free! 

#5. There is an official ruling for how many Tootsie Pop licks it takes to get to the center.

It officially takes 364 licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. Well, at least according to engineering students' scientific endeavor at Purdue University, who used a proprietary "licking machine" rather than a human tongue.
