Pine Belt Honors Good Sportsmanship

2016 SCHOLARSHIP AWARD WINNERS

Sportsmanship has always been an essential element of competitive sports, defined as a respectful approach towards opponents that fosters a competitive yet inviting environment. All too often, the desire to win clouds this judgment and leads to poor athlete to athlete interaction.

Recently, Pine Belt Auto Group was proud to partner with the Shore Conference of High Schools to reward four lucky recipients with a $1,000 check to go towards scholarships for college. The athletes chosen for this accolade displayed attributes like hard work, motivation, respect for their peers and leadership skill and ability that went above and beyond what is expected of them.

The event, held at the Pine Belt Arena in Toms River, Shore Sports Network and a partnership with 47 schools made up the Shore Conference which annually honors a male and female from each participating school. Soon, the 93 students will graduate from high school and many of them will go on to continue their athletic aspirations in college. Regardless of future plans, the athletes honored at this event all display an impeccable level of sportsmanship and respect for the game whilst displaying behaviors that encourage a more positive attitude amongst players on their respective teams.

The event was attended by over 300 guests who watched four honorees receive a scholarship of $1,000 each from Pine Belt Auto Group as a result of a random drawing. Executive manager Rob Sickel and spokesperson Alana Hackshaw conducted the drawing for the rewards.

Additionally, Athletic directors of the year Rusty Todd from Ocean Township High School and Joe Arminio of Toms River Regional School District were recognized.

This marks the second year that Pine Belt Auto Group has sponsored the event and is proud to encourage and support student leaders to strive for their post high school aspirations.

President Reagan’s Jeep Is Now On Display

Jeep

The “Cars at the Capital” collection at Washington D.C.’s National Mall is displaying the famous vehicles of two of America’s presidents.

Out of them the first one is the Willys Jeep (CJ-6) which was a Christmas gift from the First Lady Nancy Reagan to Ronald Reagan. The year was 1963. Reagan had treasured the jeep for several decades as his career progressed from being an actor to California’s governor and then the President of the United States.

The Jeep in question had got featured in several pictures what were clicked when Reagan came back to his ranch Rancho del Cielo, located near Santa Barbara. There are images of the President using his Jeep for clearing brush and also driving it along with his dogs.

The other presidential vehicle that is on display is a White Steam car that is the sole survivor of the four cars used by the President William Howard Taft for accelerating the White House into an automotive era.

While there were other cars used in the presidential service prior to Taft taking charge, he was responsible for moving the White House into an automotive age completely when the stables in the White House were converted into a garage where his four cars were placed.

John R. Barletta, a Secret Service agent who is now retired recalls that Reagan simply loved driving his Jeep and took pride in taking care of it.

The President simply loved driving the Jeep himself while he was at the ranch. Its original color was utility green but later was painted red coupled by pinstripes in white by the California National Guard.

Chevrolet Gives Prince Tribute in New Ad

shutterstock_409643212

When Pop star Prince passed away all of a sudden, there was no end of tributes from different countries. One of the most touching tributes was paid by General Motor’s Chevrolet division. It was a touching tribute but done in a low-key manner.

Full-page ads were bought in six newspapers by Chevrolet in memory of the legendary singer. The pictures showed a Chevrolet Corvette of the 1963 model year with a fitting caption: “Baby that was much too fast” as the late singer was paid tribute for his 1982 hit number “Little red Corvette

The picture was tweeted on Twitter and uploaded on Facebook too. However, General Motors wanted to do it in an understated manner. That was the reason why the name of General Motors and Chevrolet did not feature in these ads apart from the car’s picture.

Craig Daith, who is the social media manager of Chevy and its advertising spokesman, confessed that he and his boys were thinking along similar lines when he heard that his Vice President advertising in Chevy was thinking of paying a tribute to Prince.

The team devoted an entire afternoon thinking about how to pay a clean tribute to the legend without making it look like a marketing activity. Chevy’s advertisement partner Commonwealth/ McCann also worked in association with the advertisement team to give the final touches to the tribute.

As soon as the tribute was tweeted, the brand got a good response from its followers. There were 8,599 users who ‘liked’ the tweet. The number of retweets was about 8,346.

Chevrolet Camaro Trims

mm_gal_item_c2_10.img_resize.img_stage._3

It was a challenging task for the designers of the Chevrolet Camaro when they had to design a car that will be sporting a modern body but will be lighter at the same time. Moreover, they needed to also keep the design of its predecessor in mind. All these factors and challenges resulted in a more compact, wider and athletic shape for the new Chevy Camaro.

The proportion of this sports car is restrained and that reduced about 390 pounds to make it more lightweight. The response of its braking system is excellent with improved attack mechanism round the corners.

There are three primetime powertrain alternatives from Chevrolet Camaro with a suit of contemporary technologies for easier connectivity and a strong and sophisticated design.

Check out the key features of Camaro’s three trim options:

2LT Coupe
