Help Pumpkin Help Local Charity for the Holidays

We all know that in today's consumer driven world, the winter holidays seem to creep further and further into the fall.  The day after Halloween we will start seeing Christmas decorations in malls, stores and the like.  We can also safely assume that the main reason for this is to capitalize on the holiday shopping season.  Retailers can begin getting "holiday" shoppers into their stores and in the holiday shopping mood as early in the fall as possible.  Here is one aspect of the holidays that we had to spread the word about early and implore all of our great friends and customers to join us. 
This year, Pumpkin Fine Cars is making an effort to spread that holiday cheer to those of us who are less fortunate and need the help of others to give their children and families a happy holiday.  Pumpkin is joining forces with The Arc of Atlantic County to help increase the participation in The Arc's Holiday Partners Program.  The Arc of Atlantic County is a private non-profit organization that has been making a difference in the lives of people with developmental disabilities and their families since it's founding in 1961.  The Arc of Atlantic County's Holiday Partners program is designed to match donors of gifts/food with families who are in need of assistance during the holidays.  Both individuals and groups can be matched with local adults or children with a developmental disability and their families who are in need of food or gifts this holiday season.  All recipients live in Atlantic County, are receiving services from The Arc of Atlantic County and are in financial need.  Donations are in the form of a wrapped, tagged gift or food items and can either be delivered directly to the family or dropped off at The Arc and they will deliver them.
 Pumpkin Cars Owners' Franck and Gina Freon have generously offered to supply a drop off location at our showroom at 2511 Fire Rd, Unit B7, Egg Harbor Township, NJ for any of our friends and customers that would like to participate in the program.  Not only are we going to serve as a drop location, but also the Freon family has offered to match all gifts dropped at Pumpkin Cars!!  Franck and Gina were originally introduced to this program through their children, Harrison and Isabella's school.  Through the school they were matched with a family and donated and delivered gifts.  Gina has said that she always wants her children to realize how fortunate they are to be healthy, safe and live such a comfortable life. They wanted to make them aware that there are many others, even in our local community, that are not as lucky and do need assistance.  In an effort to increase participation in the Holiday Partners Program, Gina had the idea to offer Pumpkin's showroom and to match any donations we receive.  We then got in touch with Nicole Terzakis, the Social Services Director at The Arc, to get the ball rolling.  "Holiday Partners is a program which solely runs on donations.  We appreciate anything that we receive from our community partners.  This partnership with Pumpkin Fine Cars is exactly what we look for.  We are so happy to have this partnership and can't wait to see what happens!", said Nicole. 
We here at Pumpkin Cars know what great and generous friends and customers we have and ask that you join our efforts to help this great cause for local families.  Please bring a wrapped, tagged gift to our unique indoor showroom at 2511 Fire Rd, Unit B7, Egg Harbor Township, NJ between now and Saturday, December 11th.  Pumpkin Cars will match all gifts donated and members of the Pumpkin Family will personally deliver the gifts to hopefully multiple families in need.  Please help us make the holidays happy and bright for those that cannot provide for themselves.  Please contact Pumpkin Cars at 609-646-7676 or via email at [email protected] with any questions or if you would like to participate.  You may also contact Nicole Terzakis of The Arc of Atlantic County at 609-485-0800 x 201 or via email [email protected] with any questions about The Arc of Atlantic County or the Holiday Partners Program.

Pumpkins Galore!

It's that time of year again and here at Pumpkin Fine Cars & Exotics we are always reminded of the iconic theme that goes so well with the upcoming Holidays.  Since the name of our company was incorporated into the business, not for the Holiday theme or for the Cinderella story as has been assumed in the past, but because of the nickname that Owners Franck & Gina Freon had for their son when he was just a baby, it is still hard to ignore the fun comparisons that can come with sharing the Pumpkin theme. 

Harrison & Isabella Freon took part in the Holiday fun and made sure to get their Pumpkin picking in for the year.  From large pumpkins to small pumpkins and as Isabella & Harrison show, even tiny pumpkins are all great to use for decorations, carvings and of course pies.  Stop by your local pumpkin patch and pick up a few for yourself.  If you are interested in a bigger, more extravagant pumpkin, we have many pre-owned, luxury Pumpkin vehicles for you to choose from at our very own "pumpkin patch".  Check out our website at http://www.pumpkincars.com/ or stop by our indoor showroom located in Egg Harbor Twp, NJ just outside of Atlantic City.  For detailed directions or a complete listing of our pre-owned vehicles, log onto our website and click on the 'Inventory' tab.  Contact us at (609)646-7676 or by email at [email protected]umpkincars.com.

As always, remember to be safe on the roadways, wear light colored clothing or reflective items when trick or treating and always be cautious of everyone's little pumpkins that may be outside and running around at this wonderful time of year!

2003 Mercedes Benz E320


Pumpkin Fine Cars, car of the day is this 2003 Mercedes Benz E320.  This gem of an E Class has a very stylish and unique color combination with a black exterior and a very light tan interior.  This E320 also has the newest body style up until the 2009 model year.  The E-Class is Mercedes Benz "work horse" and it is known for it's perfect balance of luxury, performance and reliability.  Being as that it is the mid-size executive sedan in the Mercedes Benz line up, it is usually the most popular.  This particular E320 has plenty of features and options that you will love including power/heated seats with memory positions, alloy wheels, CD player, power moon roof and many other power options.  This car is in tremendous shape and with 85k miles is priced just right at $13,995.  You will be hard pressed to find a Mercedes Benz E-Class with this newer body style priced below $15,000.  This again is truly a car you will only find at Pumpkin Cars!  Imagine how jealous your friends and neighbors will be if they find out that this pristine pre-owned Mercedes Benz cost you less than the price of most domestic brand sedans.  If looks could kill, this car would be locked up! 

This Mercedes Benz E320 is one of many immaculate pre-owned vehicles in the Pumpkin Cars repertoire.  It has been fully serviced by and ASE certified mechanic, test driven personally by Franck Freon, fully detailed and is ready to hit the road!  By test driving each car in inventory, whether it is a $60,000 Ferrari Testarossa or a $10,000 BMW 5 Series, Franck can use his experience of almost 20 years as a professional race car driver to evaluate each vehicle.  He can sense and feel things in the performance of the vehicle that the average driver just does not have the awareness to notice.  He can tell precisely what the car needs to become a Pumpkin Car and put his name on it.  Because of this we make sure that all of our Pumpkin Fine Cars are in tip top shape both mechanically and cosmetically as part of our uncompromising Pumpkin Certification Program.  If you have always wanted to own a Mercedes Benz E-Class but did not want to part with upwards of $50,000 to buy a brand new one, than this just could be the perfect car for you!

Heed Manufacturers Recall Notices

As many, if not all of our regular blog readers know, we devote a significant amount of space here towards car and driving safety issues.  One such subject that we have not touched upon thus far are manufacturers recalls.  An increase in awareness to recalls comes on the heels of massive recalls by Toyota for 740,000 Toyota and Lexus models to repair a possible faulty brake cylinder.  Here are some scary numbers.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimated that 60 percent of the 14 million Ford Windstar Minivans from 1995-2003 that it had recalled were never repaired.  This particular recall addressed issues with the cruise control switches that could leak into the anti-lock braking system and cause a fire.  That means approximately 8.4 million of these vehicles were never repaired and may still be out on the road today, and may still have the possibility of starting a fire that may not only effect the owner of the car but fellow motorists that may be around at the time.  It is mind boggling as to why the owner would not have the recalled repairs made because the dealerships do the work for free and it usually only takes a short amount of time to do so.  This also factors into the resale value of a vehicle.  If a potential buyers sees that there is an outstanding recall repair on a vehicle history report, it could jeopardize the sale at worst and lower the value of the vehicle at best. 
The following are a few tips to make sure that if you do get a recall notice, you follow the proper procedures to have the items repaired in a timely manner and keep you and others safe on the road. First you want to make sure that you read the recall notice in full and understand what parts/items are affected by it.  They are usually only one page long and provide a pretty clear description of the problem and what it takes to address it. If you do not receive a recall notice, but think your vehicle may be affected, call your dealership with your car's VIN number handy, they will run the VIN through their computer and should be able to tell you on the spot if your car is part of the recall.  If you see on the news, or read online about a recall, that is addressing your cars year, make and model, it does not necessarily mean that your car is going to get recalled as well.  The dealership that you purchased the car from should be able to give you all the needed information.  Make sure to make an appointment with the dealership for the repair before just showing up, they may need to order a part before they can complete the repair.  It also may not hurt to check and see if your car is scheduled for any regular maintenance that you can have done such as an oil change or tire rotation, while you have to have your car in for the recall repair anyway.  Finally, bring the recall notice with you to the dealership.  In today's age of digital information and computers, it is probable not a necessity to do so because the dealer should be able to run your VIN number and see what needs to be done, but bringing the notice will not hurt and might speed up the process a little bit. 
Pumpkin Cars takes great pride in making sure that all of our vehicles are road safe and have had any recall issues addressed.  Safety is the number one feature on which we will not compromise.  Every Pumpkin Fine Car goes through our rigorous Pumpkin Certification Program and is test driven personally by Franck Freon.  Take a ride over to our unique indoor showroom located on Fire Rd in Egg Harbor Township, NJ to browse the inventory, take one or a few cars out for a test drive and see what a great experience buying a Pumpkin Car can be.  Pumpkin Cars can be reached over the phone at 609-646-7676 and via email at [email protected] .  You can find and "Like" Pumpkin Cars and Franck Freon on Facebook, follow our tweets on Twitter, view videos of our Pumpkin Cars on YouTube, and if you enjoy what you have just read, please subscribe to our blog.

Teach Your Teens to Drive

A new AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has released a new study that states that parents are not spending enough time teaching their new teenage drivers to drive.  Car crashes are the leading cause of death among teens.  This is an alarming trend.  In 2008, 1,368 U.S. drivers between the ages of 15 and 18 died in traffic crashes. Obviously most of these tragedies occur within the first two years of driving.  The study found that the main reason is that teen drivers do not spend enough time behind the wheel learning with their parents and experiencing diverse driving conditions.  AAA took an unprecedented look for four months at parents and teenagers as they hit the road during driving lessons. The study included 50 North Carolina families with teenagers driving with learners permits. Dashboard cameras were attached to the families' cars and parents were interviewed 10 times during the year-long learners period. The study found that the parents spent less than two hours a week supervising their teens' driving.  The majority of states in the US require that parents spend a minimum of 50 hours of driving practice during the time period that they have their learners permit.  The AAA foundation recommends 100 hours and that parents need to let their teens drive in all kinds of conditions including rain, traffic and especially at night. Twenty percent of teen driving fatalities occurred between 9pm and Midnight.
Teens need more experience than just driving to and from school and church which becomes benign and repetitive. By doing this, when the teen is out driving on their own, they will have experience in "real world" driving conditions.  Forty seven percent of the parents that participated in the study said there were certain conditions in which they still did not feel comfortable driving with their teens, even after a year long learners permit stage.  Thirty seven percent of those families still allowed their teen to get their license one month after becoming eligible.  The AAA foundation gives recommendations for parents when teaching their children how to drive like paying attention to how they drive, give them strategies for driving intelligently, teach them defensive driving, and most importantly that you spend enough time with them driving to ensure safety before they drive independently.

We at Pumpkin Cars, and especially Franck Freon know the importance of safe driving and stress it to every Pumpkin customer whether they are 18 or 80.  Franck knows from his extensive career as a professional driver that the smallest safety feature of the car cannot be overlooked because somebody's mother, father, sister or brother's life could depend on it.  That is why every Pumpkin Car goes through a strict safety check during our Pumpkin Certification Program.  As most parents with young or teenage drivers know most times they are not worried about their own drivers safety and ability, but they are worried about other drivers on the road.  Learning to drive defensively will help your teen better react to situations where other drivers are not safe.
Please take a short ride over to our unique indoor showroom located on Fire Rd. in Egg Harbor Township to check out our pristine inventory of Pumpkin Cars. We have some great cars right now that are perfect in which to teach your team how to drive!  You can contact Pumpkin Cars over the phone at 609-646-7676 or via email at [email protected] .  Please find and "Like" Pumpkin Cars and Franck Freon on Facebook, follow @PumpkinCars on Twitter, view videos about our cars and Pumpkin Cars on YouTube and if you enjoy what you have just read, pleas subscribe to our blog!

Pumpkin Customer Proves Age is Just a Number

One thing we have learned over the years in business here at Pumpkin Fine Cars is that you never know who is going to walk through the door next. As anyone that works in a retail environment can attest to, every day brings a new assorted cast of interesting people from all backgrounds and walks of life. That is one of the only constants and one of the alluring facets of working in retail, whether it is food, consumer packaged goods, or in our case high quality pre-owned cars. If you consider yourself a “people person” and enjoy meeting and conversing with new and interesting people there are very few outlets in which it happens as frequently as in retail sales.

                 Don Taylor and his pristine 2000 BMW 528i from Pumpkin Fine Cars
We had one customer a few days ago that has a story that we felt compelled to share with our friends. His name is Donald Taylor. Donald was referred to Pumpkin Cars by a gentleman he met at while sitting at the bar of a restaurant waiting to get seated for dinner. He came in looking to have his Lincoln Towncar appraised for a trade value and Don had his eye on a pristine silver 2000 BMW 528i. After a few details were worked out, Pumpkin and Don reached an agreement on the transaction. Don was now the proud owner of a BMW 528i. Up until this point I’m sure nothing about this story seems out of the ordinary. Now, let’s learn a little bit about Don and you will see why this story really is extraordinary. Don Taylor was born in London, England in December of 1920. That is correct; Don Taylor is 89 years old. When asked what his reason was for buying a BMW he frankly and simply replied, “I’m treating myself to a BMW for my 90th birthday present.” At this point all of us in the office at once stopped, looked at each other and Don and thought, “Wow, what a cool explanation.” Don is very sharp, has a great sense of humor and was very pleasant throughout the process. At nearly 90 years old he was also willing to trade in and part with his "baby", a lovely 2002 Lincoln Towncar for one of Pumpkin's speciality brands, the world renowned "driver's car" a BMW 5 series!  He explained that he actually owned a Jaguar dealership in North London before he retired to the States. He has been married to his wife Hilda, who will also turn 90 shortly, for 68 years.

When we asked Don why he came to Pumpkin Fine Cars he told us that he was referred, but after he came in initially to speak with Franck Freon, he never considered going anywhere else. Upon hearing that, we began to think about the magnitude of that statement with regards to how comfortable Don felt at Pumpkin, and how quickly we earned his trust. Now, please keep in mind that Don had worked in the auto industry; he had owned a car dealership. This was someone that knew the business and clearly knew how most dealerships operate. Think of it from your own point of view. Would you feel comfortable letting your father, mother, grandfather, etc at the age of 89 go into a car dealership alone, and not worry about them getting taken advantage of, run in circles or even being taken seriously as a buyer? In most cases, your answer would be a resounding, “No”. Well, here at Pumpkin Fine Cars, that is exactly what Don Taylor did. He got a great value on a great car and drove away as happy as could be. Where else but at Pumpkin Fine Cars can that happen? What a way to celebrate your 90th Birthday!! Pumpkin Cars is very proud to be a part of it and we wish Don and his BMW 528i many years and many miles of enjoyment together.

2002 Lexus GS300

Today's Pumpkin Fine Cars, car of the day is this powerful 2002 Lexus GS300.  This Lexus has a sexy color combination of a Silver exterior and Jet Black leather interior.  The combination of luxury and performance is what makes this Lexus such a great car.  It is a One Owner car with 83k miles and we know this car has been extremely well maintained and cared for by the previous owner.  When we brought it into inventory we also received a one inch thick stack of service records and the original window sticker.  This car was serviced religiously every 5,000 miles by Lexus and it's shows in what great condition it is in both mechanically and cosmetically.  As far as options, this guy is about as fully loaded as you can get.  It has Power/Heated seats with Memory positions, a 6 disc CD Changer, alloy wheels and tilt steering wheel.  It has a strong 6 cylinder, 3.0 Liter engine and rides with a smooth, yet heavy feel.  It it is no less than a great looking and great riding car!

This car was brought into inventory and has been a staff favorite since it arrived.  It of course passed through our Pumpkin Certification Process with flying colors and was test driven personally by Franck Freon, as are all of our cars in inventory.  It has an immaculate title history and has never had an accident reported. Priced at $12,995, you will be hard pressed to find a car in this great condition at that low of a price.  This is definitely one that you have to come see and drive, after that our job is easy, the car will sell itself!  You can learn more about this car by click here to view it on our website and also see all of the other pristine Pumpkin Cars in our inventory.  Take a ride over to our unique indoor showroom and feel free to casually browse our entire inventory, take one or more of our cars out on the road, or just stop to talk cars and racing with Franck.
