With gas prices soaring again, car buyers are looking for more fuel-efficient vehicles. The Santa Monica Mountains Cyclery (SMMC), a bike shop in Woodland Hills near Los Angeles, has a different idea – drivers should opt for bicycles instead. And, to facilitate the transition, for a limited time they will accept cars as trade-ins toward new bicycle purchases.
Woodland Hills, CA, March 2012 : “It’s Los Angeles. Gas prices are near all-time highs, and the freeways are as congested as always. We want to give people the opportunity to get out of their gas-guzzling cars and SUVs and trade them for the most fuel efficient vehicle we know – the bicycle,” says David Kooi, owner of SMMC. “I’ve heard it said that cars run on money and make you fat - and bicycles run on fat and save you money. That’s never been more true.”
For a limited time from March 19th to 25th, SMMC will work with a local auto dealer, Vista Ford, and accept cars and SUVs in trade toward the purchase of a new bicycle. Consumers will head to SMMC and pick out their new, fuel-efficient bicycle. Then, they’ll go across the street to Vista Ford to have their vehicle evaluated and appraised. They trade the car to Vista Ford and return to SMMC to ride home on their new, truly carbon-friendly ride. See store for details, rules and restrictions.
