Last minute pumpkin carving ideas for halloween
Tired of carving the typical jack-o-lantern face? Try a Chevy car or car logo instead.

It’s Halloween, and that means it’s time to carve a haunting smile on that pumpkin you bought a week ago.

Are you in need any last minute pumpkin carving ideas for Halloween? Chevrolet has got you covered.

On Monday, Chevy posted 21 stencils to its Facebook page in which you can download and use for inspiration as you masterfully show off your artistic skills in front of your family and friends.

The designs include car logos and spooky themes that bring out a creepy personality in some of Chevy’s popular models. One that jumps out is the Chevy Volt, which is configured with bat wings and vampire fangs.

Regardless of which one you choose, you will have your work cut out for you as you try to cut out the design.

At the end of the night though, it will be worth it. Trick-or-treaters will not only know that your house is the home of an artist, but that Chevrolet makes for the best pumpkin-carving designs.

Happy Halloween from Nehls Chevrolet!

Teen Driver Safety Starts with the Parents

Teen Driver Safety Tips
Teen driver safety starts with the parents.

While it can be the shining moment in a teenager’s world, getting the car keys is only the first step of learning to drive.

National Teen Driver Safety Week is a yearly time set by Congress to encourage teenagers to drive safely and good passenger behavior. This year’s theme centered on how teenagers need their parents in order to transform into safe drivers.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a teenager was involved in a deadly car crash every 2 hours in 2011. In that same year, 5,000 teenagers were a part of fatal car accidents, leading to 1,900 deaths and 180,000 injuries behind the wheel.

With these statistics in mind, Nehls Chevrolet encourages parents to work with their teenagers by teaching and supervising them and enforcing rules.

In order to accomplish this mission, here are some tips for parents:

1. Patience. Remain respectful and calm while giving criticism and advice to your teen.

2. At least 65 hours of supervised driving. Keep a driving log and create a driving lesson timeline to guarantee that your teens get to experience lots of different driving situations.

3. Setting rules. Clearly communicate the dos and don’ts (ex. driving time restrictions, prohibiting cell phone use and number of passengers).

4. Being a role model driver. Follow the laws of the road and speed limit. Wear your seatbelt always. Don’t use your cell phone when driving.

5. Knowing and teaching what’s crucial. Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia found through a study that 75% of serious teen accidents happened because of a critical teen driver error.

As the weather gets cooler with winter around the corner, Nehls Chevrolet realizes that the wellbeing of a driver’s car is important more than ever before.

Whether roads are snow-covered or wet from rain and temperatures are chilly or fairly mild, a driver is accountable for taking care of his or her car. Here are 5 things you need to be aware of:

1. Fear deer. Fall is a busy time for deer breeding. Be cautious and drive slowly. Deer can travel in packs and cause damage to your car if you hit one.

2. Be on high alert. Once daylight savings time ends, visibility on the roads decreases. Pay special attention to what’s in front of you at all times.

3. Keep your tires inflated and treaded. Weather and temperature changes will enlarge and shrink your tires, which will cause them to lose air.

4. Beware of leaves. Fall is a time when leaves are everywhere other than tree branches. Wet leaves on the road can make for slippery driving conditions. Drive carefully and avoid parking near leaf piles. Doing so could lead to heated circumstances if a fire starts from your car’s catalytic converter.

5. Expect sun glare. The time change will bring much sun to morning and late afternoon driving. Always carry an extra pair of sunglasses in your car and use visors.

The Chevrolet Malibu Turns 50

Chevrolet Malibu Turns 50

The Chevrolet Malibu turns 50 years old this month.

Since the 1960s, much has changed. A gallon of gas has increased by more than 3 dollars, the cost of a movie theater ticket has jumped $7, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up nearly 14,000 points from where it closed out in 1964.

Like the real world, 50 years has brought much change to the Malibu as well. The now refined midsized sedan debuted in the 1960s as one of the first midsize cars in America, appealing to muscle car lovers and families.

While the 1964 Malibu featured a body-on-frame construction and rear-wheel drive, the 2014 model has a body-frame-integral design and is front-wheel drive. The below chart provides more detail of how far the Malibu has come.

Chevrolet Plans Apocalypse with Black Ops Silverado

Chevrolet Silverado Black Ops
Chevrolet plans for Apocalypse with Silverado Black Ops.

You’ve seen the movies, TV shows and video games. Zombies are on the loose, the world is coming to an end, and anarchy is sweeping across the planet in the form of gunfire and explosions.

Keeping this in mind, Chevrolet has taken the 2014 Silverado Crew Cab 4×4 and redesigned it for Judgment Day, assuming that gas stations will still exist.

The Black Ops Silverado concept is set to debut at the SEMA aftermarket parts show in Las Vegas in early November.

Chevrolet Design Manager Dave Ross calls this more intimidating, darker model “a survival kit on four wheels.” The truck features body armor and a bed-constructed Truck Vault storage area that holds a solar power pack, two gas masks, gloves, military first-aid kit, a folding shovel and a rope.

The back also includes a fuel can, water tank and a crate stocked with food. Twinkies anyone?

Inside the cabin, a world-ending disaster could escape your train of thought due to luxurious, custom-trimmed black seats with yellow piping and a MyLink system for uploading songs from smartphones. In a world catastrophe, a pre-loaded flash drive might be your only option though.
