Ever heard of trunk or treating? It is a new way to celebrate Halloween that involves candy, cars, and costumes! What more could you ask for?

 Basically, car owners turn their tailgate or trunk into a front porch, complete with a costume and candy. Car owners meet at a central location, and kids can go from car to car amassing tons of candy. It completely eliminates door-to-door doorbell ringing, and is a safe, fun, and festive way to celebrate Halloween.

 The fun part is dressing up your car for a trunk or treating event. You can go for a scary look, or even recreate your kids’ favorite Disney Movie. The possibilities are endless. Here are just a few ideas:

 Add some teeth and tongue to the trunk of your SUV. Don’t forget about the candy for the end of the tongue.
What about bringing your front yard to the back of your pick-up truck? Use lawn ornaments, such as skeletons, tombstones, or cobwebs, to decorate.
If you are a fan of Disney, this one is perfect for you. Recreate Finding Nemo or Ariel by using some blue fabric and cardboard for the ships.
Do you have some old Christmas decorations laying around? How about Christmas iOctober? Don’t forget about the snow.
If you are into scary costumes, this one is for you. To transform your car into a bloody mess, dye corn syrup red and apply it to your car. It will not harm your vehicle’s paint.
Transform your trunk into a jungle. Use old stuffed animals, rocks, and foliage to create a jungle landscape. You can even use an old baby gate to make your jungle scene seem like a zoo.


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. They have made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go and need your help!

Westside Automotive has been very active in the community having special Pink shirts made for all of the staff and some supporting friends all so walking for the cure. But in addition to all that we are giving $25.00 off any Auto Repair to all customers that come into the shop wearing PINK all month long in October.
