Quick & Easy Road Trip Snacks to Pack - 07/29/2014

Quick & Easy Road Trip Snacks to PackBAY CITY, Mich. – What's the first thing your kids say when you all pile in the car for a summer road trip? "Are we there yet?" may take first place but, "I'm hungry!" is probably a close second. While we can't help you get to your destination any faster, we can help you keep everyone's hunger and energy levels in check with these Quick & Easy Road Trip Snacks to Pack for your next vacation!

When you're prepping your car for a summer road trip, aside from making sure your vehicle itself is safe and running well, you want to make sure you are prepared to keep your passengers happy by keeping their bellies full. And when it comes to eating on the open road, there are a few key criteria for the best take-along snacks: tasty, healthy, easily fit into a cooler, won't make a mess, and can be eaten without dishes or utensils! Take a look at our recommendations and share your ideas in the comments section!

Quick & Easy Road Trip Snacks to Pack

Fruit
For ultimate simplicity, you can opt for personal sized fruits like apples, bananas, pears, etc. Or throw chunks of pineapple, melon, or other small fruits like grapes into a bag and you're ready to go!

Veggies
The same goes for veggies. Chop up your favorite and throw into a plastic bag. You could even bring along some hummus for dipping!

Packaged Snacks
If you're looking for a road trip snack that will stay fresh a little longer, bring along your favorite healthy packaged snack. Think granola bars, crackers, cereal, pretzels, trail mix, dried fruit, string cheese, etc. As it goes with packaged snacks though, just make sure to take a peek at the nutrition label first so you know what is really in your snack.

Sandwiches
For something a little more filling, sandwiches are a great snack to make up before you hit the road and then everyone can share. Keep it simple with nut butter and whole grain bread, or mix it up with a tortilla roll up!

Frozen Water Bottles
This idea is genius! Freeze some of your water bottles so they can be used as ice packs, and then as you near your destination they will thaw and can double as a refreshing drink for any thirsty passengers.

If you want to get a little crazy, you could even make up your favorite snacks in tupperware and bring along some plastic utensils to enjoy them during your journey. But when it comes to easy road trip snacks, it's all about keeping in mind what your family likes and what will keep everyone's spirits up when the drive gets long. Don't forget a few napkins just in case, and of course enjoy the ride!

If you need any help making sure your vehicle is ready for your summer road trip, stop by our Bay City Chevrolet Dealership and we can help you out! Hank Graff Chevy is located at 3636 Wilder Road, Bay City, MI 48706 and we can help you find the perfect vehicle for your weekend getaway! For more information on Hank Graff Chevrolet, or for any questions call us at (989) 684-4411 or visit our website: www.GraffBayCity.com.

IIHS Names 3 Chevrolets to Recommended Used Vehicles for Teens - 07/23/2014

IIHS Names 3 Chevrolets to Recommended Used Vehicles for Teens
BAY CITY, Mich. – A recent survey of parents by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety revealed that many teens drive older vehicles and more than half of the parent's young drivers drove a vehicle that was a 2006 model year or earlier. You're probably thinking what's the big deal about teenagers driving used cars? Well, many of those vehicles lack the important safety features and technologies that work to keep us, and especially new drivers, safe.

Worry not! For the first time ever, the IIHS released their Recommended Used Vehicles for Teen Drivers, and included three Chevrolets! Making the IIHS' Best Choices (under $20,000) list, the Chevy Malibu, Chevy Equinox, and Chevy Traverse all earned Good ratings in the IIHS moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests; at least four out of five stars in federal government crash tests; and offer standard stability control to help avoid rollover crashes. So if your young driver is hitting the road soon and a brand new vehicle isn't realistic, check out these three Chevrolets on IIHS' List of Recommended Used Vehicles for Teens.

However, while a safe vehicle can help to protect your child, another important factor to remember when they get behind the wheel is behavior. A $2-million GM Foundation grant funded a recent Safe Kids Worldwide report which revealed some shocking statistics. It was found that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death to teens between the ages of 13 and 19, and of those who died, half were not wearing their seat belts!

It can be a stressful time when you child becomes old enough to drive, but with safe vehicles and great training, we can keep our teens safe! If you need help finding a vehicle that will protect your young driver, we are here to help! Hank Graff Chevy is located at 3636 Wilder Road, Bay City, MI 48706 and we can help you find the perfect vehicle for your weekend getaway! For more information on Hank Graff Chevrolet, or for any questions call us at (989) 684-4411 or visit our website: www.GraffBayCity.com.

Standard 8-Speed Transmission on 2015 Chevy Silverado - 07/21/2014

Standard 8-Speed Transmission on 2015 Chevy Silverado
BAY CITY, Mich. – Not only is it already one of the best pick-up trucks on the market, but it's getting even better because the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado will offer an eight-speed automatic transmission, standard! Which means, Silverado drivers can now feel more confident behind the wheel whether they have a light or heavy load.

The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado's new standard eight-speed automatic transmission, Hydra-Matic 8L90, is about the same size and weight as the six-speed automatic transmission, but will offer a better experience for drivers. With a wider, 7.0 overall gear ratio spread, drivers who are trailering or towing a heavy load can start off more confidently. Plus, the new eight-speed enables numerically lower rear axle ratios, reducing engine rpm on the highway.

Not only will the 8L90 be one of the first in any light-duty pickup when it goes into production sometime during the fourth quarter of 2014, but the 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8 is also the most powerful engine offered in the segment! Boasting 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, the engine can also seamlessly transition to four-cylinder operation to improve fuel economy under lighter loads.

So whatever your pickup truck needs may be, Chevrolet is there to help with a truck that fits those needs perfectly. To learn more about which model is right for you, come visit us today! Hank Graff Chevy is located at 3636 Wilder Road, Bay City, MI 48706 and we can help you find the perfect vehicle for your weekend getaway! For more information on Hank Graff Chevrolet, or for any questions call us at (989) 684-4411 or visit our website: www.GraffBayCity.com.

Hank Graff's Life-Sized 1954 Corvette In A Box - 06/18/2014

BAY CITY, Mich. – Have you heard the buzz about the son who gave his dad a restored 1954 Corvette for his retirement? It's making headlines everywhere and guess what, it was actually Hank Graff who received the 'Vette from his son Chris Graff! See what CorvetteBlogger.com had to say about it below –
We’ve all heard of trailer queens, but this might be the ultimate!
Chris Graff decided to give his father Hank a very unique retirement gift: a boxed Corvette. But this wasn’t a 1/25 scale model in a box; this was a real 1954 Corvette on a trailer with a custom-made 8.5-foot-tall by 24-foot-long box built around it that makes it appear as if the Jolly Green Giant has a new toy to play with. 
The public got their first glimpse of the the boxed-car in person at the Graffs’ Chevydealership during their Festival of Corvettes in Davison, Michigan. It’ll also be on display at the June 20-24 Back to the Bricks Michiana promo tour, July 11-12 gathering in Mt. Pleasant and Aug. 12-16 signature events in Genesee County. 
“We fell in love with a car box and we thought we’d build a car box at one point and time. That transformed from a trailer to a box to move a car around in,” said Tom Kelly, the dealership’s special projects manager. “We hated the feeling of going to a car show and having to cancel because of the weather.” 
When a 1954 Corvette was traded in at the dealership, they began a seven-month restoration that Hank didn’t realize was actually going to wind up being a retirement gift for him from his son. 
“We built the car that Chevrolet would have loved to build had they had the technology back then that we have today,” Kelly said. 
The box features a life-size photo of the car’s rear end on the back with operating tail lights and Hank’s photo. A neat feature is a graphic that points out the “toy” is for ages 16+ since you have to have a license to drive it! It also promises “real rubber tires” and “functional steering,” among other features. 
The box takes on a really cool look at night when LED lights from above and below put the Corvette in the spotlight. 
“As handsome as it is in the daylight and unique as it is, it is amazing when it sets out on display for the evening hours,” Kelly said. 
The life-sized toy box is already drawing a lot of attention, having made its public debut last weekend at Back to the Bricks in Cadillac, where it was the subject of many double takes and subsequent photos.

Special Edition Corvette 'Zora'? - 06/17/2014

Special Edition Corvette 'Zora'?

BAY CITY, Mich. – Zora Arkus-Duntov. He was the father of the Corvette and by adding a V-8 engine to the first generation Corvette, he was able to take the vehicle into sports car territory. He also introduced the Grand Sport program which helped make the second generation Corvette a world class racing success. So why the Corvette history lesson?

According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, General Motors has just trademarked the name Zora making us think a special edition Corvette 'Zora' may be on the horizon! Trademarking a name is nothing new. Automakers do it all the time for future models or to protect their history. However, this particular filing is significant because of the wording which states GM will reserve Zora for "motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles."

Although a special edition Corvette 'Zora' has not been confirmed by General Motors, we will keep you updated on all the latest Chevy news right here! Hank Graff Chevy is located at 3636 Wilder Road, Bay City, MI 48706 and we can help you find the perfect vehicle for your weekend getaway! For more information on Hank Graff Chevrolet, or for any questions call us at (989) 684-4411 or visit our website: www.GraffBayCity.com.

Summer Side Dish Recipes - 05/19/2014

BAY CITY, Mich. – While summer was a little slow to arrive on the scene, 4th of July is almost here and that means you're likely spending the weekend outdoors with friends and family if our Michigan weather cooperates. Rather than bringing the same old macaroni salad to this year's celebration, make sure your contribution is the life of the party with one of these delicious Summer Side Dish Recipes!

Summer Side Dish Recipes

Memorial Day Side Dish Recipes

Potato salad is a summer staple, but if you'd prefer to avoid all that extra mayo then this fresh twist on the classic salad is for you. Spoiler alert: healthier whole grain mustard and olive oil take mayo's place!

Memorial Day Side Dish Recipes

Pasta salad is another one of those summer classics, and this upgraded recipe is one of our favorites. Full of flavor, greens, and tasty balsamic, your party goers will be pleasantly surprised with this twist on your classic pasta salad.

Memorial Day Side Dish Recipes

If you've already got the grill on, turn the heat up to high and make your summer side dish right there. This charred corn salad accompanied by tomatoes and red onion is a great option for all you corn on the cob lovers, and is a bit easier to eat if you're socializing in the backyard.

Memorial Day Side Dish Recipes

While garlic bread isn't typically a side dish that you think about serving over 4th of July weekend, this one topped with mushrooms is too good to pass up. Plus, if you already have the grill on, we think heating the bread on the grill would be a great added touch.

Memorial Day Side Dish Recipes

Can't forget about the finger food that everyone loves to munch on before the grill heats up! If you want to bring a little pre-dinner snack to your celebration then we recommend this party mix with some unconventional ingredients like Bugles and roasted green peas. Trust us, take one look at it and you'll want to make it!

We hope that you have a great time cooking up a delicious 4th of July meal, but above all stay safe! If you need to get your vehicle tuned up before you head up north, stop in and we can help you out! Hank Graff Chevy is located at 3636 Wilder Road, Bay City, MI 48706 and we can help you find the perfect vehicle for your weekend getaway! For more information on Hank Graff Chevrolet, or for any questions call us at (989) 684-4411 or visit our website: www.GraffBayCity.com.

Chevrolet Updates Silverado for 2015 - 05/12/2014

Chevrolet Updates Silverado for 2015
BAY CITY, Mich. – The 2014 Silverado just recently arrived on the scene, so no way it's getting an update for 2015, right? Think again. Competition in the full-size truck segment has never been stiffer and according to a recent report, the Chevrolet Silverado will be updated for 2015! Rumor has it General Motors is fast-tracking some of the updates that have been in the works for the truck to be included in the 2015 model.

With tough competition from competing models, GM can't afford the Silverado to not be the most popular truck on the road. And what better way to accomplish that than by taking an already impressive truck and making it even better? In a recent interaction with The Detroit News, the Silverado Executive Chief Engineer didn't reveal much detail on the updates, but gave us a glimpse into the new Chevrolet Silverado updates for 2015. Most important for the 2015 truck is improved fuel economy. A rumored eight-speed transmission, or one that uses more than the current six gears, would provide better fuel efficiency. Coupled with start-stop technology and a drastic weight loss through the use of aluminum and composite materials, the 2015 Chevy Silverado could see fuel economy improvements of up to 20%. In addition to more miles per tank, the new Silverado is also expected to feature new technology and appearance enhancements.

“You’ll see these kinds of technologies over the next few years, a whole array of neat, new technologies, some focused on fuel economy, some focused on capability,” Luke, GM's Silverado Executive Chief Engineer, said to The Detroit News.

Since the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado is expected to be released before the end of 2014, we won't have to wait long to officially confirm these details! Hank Graff Chevy is located at 3636 Wilder Road, Bay City, MI 48706 and we can help you find the perfect truck for your needs! For more information on Hank Graff Chevrolet, or for any questions call us at (989) 684-4411 or visit our website: www.GraffBayCity.com.
