Cars and Ice Cream: It’s a Family Thing

classic cars at a car show
Heritage Farm Ice Cream and Restaurant and 1A Auto partnered to raise money for a local non-profit at the restaurant’s classic car show on Memorial Day.

There’s just something special about summer when it starts to roll in. Especially when driving a classic car on a beautiful sunny day with the convertible top down. Driving a convertible while in search of a perfect ice cream cone can make the day even better. That special summertime ritual and fun feeling have become a long-standing Green family tradition. Throwing the kids in the car, heading down to a classic car show, and grabbing an ice cream cone has been a great way of spending an afternoon together for a generation of Greens, and it’s personal.

Why are wagons undoubtedly the best vehicle? Watch and find out.

In this week’s 1A Auto Talk & Tune Video, Dan and I discussed the many reasons why wagons are the future, and why everyone needs one. Between the obvious good looks, terrific engine options, incredibly spacious interiors, and low insurance costs, wagons are the best kept secret in the automotive world. They hold enough people to call it a party, they can substitute for a camper, they are low enough to wash the roof of without a step ladder, and are nearly always filled with luxurious options. If you don’t already own a wagon, you are going to want to after this video.

15 car questions in 10 minutes? – 1A Auto Talk & Tune Episode 7

In episode 7 of the 1A Auto talk and tune show, Dan was unable to attend. So, I replaced him with a clock, and then attempted to answer 15 automotive questions from viewers in 10 minutes. Not only did it take me about 20 minutes to answer the 15 questions, but 15 was actually 14.  Shhh, don’t tell anybody.

14 Fun Car Audio Facts in Episode 5 of 1A Auto Talk & Tune

In this week’s episode of the 1A Auto Talk & Tune auto show, we reveal 14 fun car audio facts that will amaze and astonish. We also help diagnose a vehicle that has a coil on plug ignition causing engine noise through the car audio system.

So how did this episode go from an insider perspective? Well, I think it went pretty well overall, until the end when we accidentally combined two fun facts. This brought our total to 13, which if you watch to the end of the video, you will see. You know what though – we aren’t actors, we are a couple car enthusiasts making a video about cars, so these things happen.

Watch Episode 4 of the 1A Auto Talk & Tune Show

We have just finished episode 4 of the 1A Auto Talk & Tune show, and we answered more car questions than ever before! Keep those questions coming – because the more you ask, the more we’ll answer! Dan and I covered ABS brakes on a Camaro, recommended transmission services, HVAC repair, and why so many car manufactures are switching their beloved model names to letters and numbers.

After watching this episode, you may notice that there is an edit somewhere around 7:50. As much as we love to film these episodes in just 1 take for easy editing, occasionally we mess up and need to edit it. We’re human! The good news is that these mess-up’s always make for terrific outtakes, which we have been including at the end of each of the videos for your entertainment. We hope you love this episode, and feel free to give us some feedback!
