How to Autumn-ize Your Car

October 8, 2013
It’s October! When it comes to fall, I’m one of those people who bursts at the seams with all of the autumn traditions and smells and opportunities. And that’s why I’m creating this specific blog post about making your car as fall-ish and fantastic as possible! 🙂 My tips are simple but great! spicedcinaut First up, it’s time for all the classic autumn smells! My personal favorites: spiced pumpkin and apple cinnamon. (The smell of a bonfire is another favorite of mine, but a lot of people don’t enjoy it as much as I do, so I’ll set those differences aside.) To make your car smell more like the wonderful season that is the fall, head to your nearest grocery store and stock up on some yummy air fresheners! Both you and your passengers will thank you for your go-getter mentality for a great-smelling vehicle! trutruckdog Next, store some comfy blankets and sweatshirts in the back of your car! Any evening adventures of star gazing or bonfires (!!) or a drive-in will call for warmth, so stay on top of it by always having extra clothing and blankets in your vehicle. You could even go 110% and bring a MATTRESS so you’re totally and completely comfy! lwtklwtlw Share the gift of giving! October has a lot of opportunities to give back, and McCarthy Auto is all over that! Presenting three different ways you can share your wealth 🙂 First,  October is Breast Cancer Awareness month! For every new and pre-owned vehicle sold at any of the six McCarthy Auto locations, $10 will be donated to the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge in downtown Kansas City! Next up, take the pledge! McCarthy Auto is teaming up with PrepsKC to “Take the Pledge to Not Text and Drive.” Check out to take the pledge and vote for your favorite local high school! The school at the end of October with the most amount of pledges will be awarded $5,000 to the football program courtesy of McCarthy Auto Group! And finally, show your hockey love! Grab your season tickets now and go check out some Missouri Mavericks games — McCarthy Auto is a sponsor!! Three cheers for October!!!
