Car Wars is here!

If you are even thinking about purchasing a new or used car, you need to get down to the John Paul Jones Arena today through Saturday March 27. The area’s four largest car dealers, Battlefield, Brown, Colonial and Jim Price, have brought their inventories of new and used cars to the John Paul Jones Arena for Car Wars. UVA Community Credit Union conceived this mega-car sale, and is offering terrific financing terms on the spot.

Why are we blogging about this? Because United Way-Thomas Jefferson Area is receiving a small donation per car sold at this event, and we are hoping that hundreds of cars are sold, adding up to several thousand dollars that we can put to work helping those in need in our community.

Caroline Emerson and I assisted at yesterday’s preview for UVA Community Credit Union members, and it was amazing to watch people come in, trade in their own cars and drive off with a new one, all within the space of an hour or two. What a terrific opportunity to test drive all the car makes and models you are considering, all in one place. Prices are marked down and interests rates are low, and the dealers would rather not have to move a lot of cars back on to their own lots.

Stop by the JPJ sometime before the end of the day on Saturday. Used cars are in the main lot, and each dealer has a floor of the parking garage for their new car inventory. If you see a United Way staff member wearing their Live United shirt, please come by and say hello. We are taking turns helping with the door prize registrations. I’ve already scoped out my sporty red mid-life crisis car, my practical commuter car and spotted my husband’s dream car. What will you find?
