Honoring Nathan Silpath

Here at Preston Automotive Group, we are heartbroken to hear that our dear friend Nathan Silpath of Galena passed away after an eight-year battle with cancer Tuesday, Jan. 9. Nathan, 17, was an inspiration to our local community and we were always glad to see him. Nathan was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma — a rare form of bone cancer — in 2010. Rather than let that news deter him from enjoying his life, he chose to use his diagnosis as fuel to help other people and spread awareness about what it truly means to be afflicted by cancer. He became a member of the American Cancer Society, participated in the Relay For Life and was the face of the Delmarva Broadcasting Company’s 2011 Help Our Kids Radiothon; an annual two-day fundraiser to benefit the Nemours Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. Through all of this, he underwent three relapses and tragically contracted lung cancer and leukemia. He suffered a final relapse of leukemia in December 2017.

Nathan’s good work helped many people from all walks of life and brought hope wherever he went. We at Preston Automotive Group wanted to do what we can to honor and celebrate his life. That is why we will be donating $100 to Nathan’s Story for every car that is sold at our dealerships from Thursday, Jan. 11 to Saturday, Jan. 13. This is an organization that the Silpath family started to document how Nathan handled his journey with cancer and to inspire others who are similarly affected by this terrible illness through fundraisers and more. According to its Facebook page, one mission of Nathan’s Story is to “see the good that can come from people coming together to fight this terrible disease.” We encourage all of our customers and everyone in the community to come out to one of our locations or visit the organization’s Facebook page, to find out what you can do to help this organization. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Slipath family and we thank Nathan for inspiring us all to live life to the fullest.

Mission: Possible 5 Accomplished!

Mission Possible 5

Preston Ford is thrilled to say Mission Accomplished Delmarva! The 2017 Mission: Possible 5 Sales Event of the Year was a huge success! Preston Ford began this year-end sales event to pass on unbeatable savings to its loyal customers and to place Preston, Maryland on the map. Our goal for 2017 was to close out the year at number 59, but by the end of the 2017 Mission: Possible 5 Sales Event, we were 54th in the nation! This was our highest finish yet and better than last year’s finish at 63rd. More amazing, Preston Ford’s Commercial Department ranked 8th in the nation for 2017! We also finished as the top Ford dealer in the Washington region for 2017, and we were the 6th top selling Ford dealer in the nation for the month of December!

With your help, Preston Ford sold 2,520 trucks, cars, SUVs and commercial vehicles in 2017.  Low prices, a great buying experience, and a large selection of vehicles allow Preston Ford to compete nationally, but it is the success of our Mission: Possible Year End Sales Event that pushes us deep into the Top 100. This December, Preston Ford sold 529 trucks, cars, SUVs and commercial vehicles. That makes it one of the best months we’ve had in Preston Ford history. We saw a greater demand this year for Ford’s rugged F-Series trucks, with strong high-end demand as customers continued to opt for Ford’s technology and equipment packages, and we saw a strong demand for the family-friendly Ford Explorer and the impressive Ford Expedition.

Preston Ford is proud to be a part of the Delmarva community and even prouder to be able to offer its community some of the most competitive price points and one of the best buying experience found in the nation.  We are also proud of our dedicated sales team. Our team put in a lot of manhours and hard work, so that each of our customers could drive off our sales lot in a new or used vehicle and at an affordable price. We want to thank our customers, new and old, for continuing to support us in always reaching new heights. That is why we are hitting this year with full steam ahead, so that we can carry on our tradition of outstanding customer service. Our goal always is to make sure that everyone feel comfortable and confident while they visit our showroom and browse through our extensive inventory of Ford cars, trucks or SUVs. We are ready to make 2018 the best year it can be and everyone is invited along for the ride. So come by Preston Ford today, talk with our sales team and find out what we can do to get you behind the wheel of the Ford you have always wanted.

New Millsboro CDJR Building to Open Soon

We at Millsboro Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram are excited to announce that we are making great progress with the construction of our new headquarters and expect to be open later this month. For the past two years, we have been the premier destination for those seeking a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or Ram dealer in the Millsboro area. Realizing that we needed room to grow, we began building a new state-of-the-art building right next to the Millsboro Auto Mart location on Dupont Boulevard. Our plan is to expand our inventory to better serve our customers, but keep the small-town hospitality and service that you have come to enjoy. When you stop by, our goal is to make you feel welcome and find you the perfect Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or Ram that will make driving the best experience. That is where our new headquarters will come in, with features like its impressive showroom. Our highly-trained staff will be glad to give you a tour and provide you with any information you might require regarding your new car. While in our new building, we will make sure that you have the necessary knowledge to purchase your new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram with confidence.

As we move forward with our new headquarters, we also will be offering a Big Finish sales event. That means 0 percent APR for 72 months, plus $1,000 in bonus cash financed through the FCA. You also will not have to make any payments for 90 days, when your purchase is done at Millsboro CDJR*. This event is our way of saying “thank you” to our customers, for their continued support and dedication as we continue building the next phase of our operation. Once completed, the Millsboro CDJR headquarters will be used for new inventory and the Millsboro Auto Mart building will become the official place for our inventory of used cars. So be sure to stay informed as we finish up and we cannot wait to see you at the grand opening of the new Millsboro Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram headquarters later this month.

Preston Ford Announces Goals for Mission Possible 5 Sales Event

Misson Possible 5

Preston Ford has announced that this year’s Drive To 100 Sales Event is on a fast track to end 2017 on a historic note. For the past several years, we have placed on the list for the Top 100 best-performing Ford dealerships in the U.S. We are proud to say that due to our sales last month, we reached our goal for November and are now number 88 on the Top 100 Ford Dealers list. Not only that, but we also are the #1 Ford dealership in the Washington region as of last month. This was partly due to the success we saw on Black Friday. Our figures show that we sold an impressive 45 units that day, like the Ford F-150s for sale and other vehicles. We at Preston Ford want to thank all of our customers for coming out on Black Friday and showing their support. We are grateful and will continue our standards of excellence in the coming month.

Mission Possible 5

For November, the best-selling Ford vehicles at Preston Ford were the 2017 Ford F-150, the 2017 Ford F-250, the 2017 Ford Explorer, the 2017 Ford Edge and the 2017 Ford Escape. That is because Ford continues to pave the way when it comes to reliability, performance and quality engineering. The Ford F-150 is an everyman’s truck for all-terrain — whether for work or play — and the Ford F-250 takes that to the next level with its expanded towing capabilities, for those who need to haul more than 10,000 lbs. The Ford Explorer and the Ford Edge are perfect if you are looking for an SUV that can handle back roads with the guarantee that your family will get to their destination safely and in style. If you want a vehicle that combines the power of an SUV with the versatility of something like a sedan, a more compact option is the Ford Escape. Our highly trained staff at Preston Ford will be glad to help you decide which of these five fantastic vehicles best fits your lifestyle. Whatever way you choose, you cannot go wrong with a Ford.

Though we are definitely proud of our recent success, we are not stopping there. That is why we have decided to set our sights even higher for December.  For the Drive To 100 Sales Event, our goals are to continue being the #1 Ford dealership in the Washington region and we also want to end December in at least the tenth position for the country. Another goal we have is to be the top Ford dealership in Maryland. And finally to place as the 59th best selling dealer across the nation for the year 2017.  We at Preston Ford are confident we can reach these goals and look forward to our customers’ continued support. So stop by today, talk with our experienced staff members and see for yourself why Ford continues to be one of the best brands on the market.

Talbot Goes Purple

Talbot Goes Purple

“We’re in the middle of the deadliest drug epidemic in our history – and much of it starts with improper use of prescription painkillers. I believe we need to start teaching our kids these pills are basically synthetic heroin and WILL lead to heroin addiction.” – Joe Gamble, Talbot County Sheriff

Talbot Goes Purple is a program meant to engage the community and help youth stand up against substance abuse. Through the creation of purple clubs in our local high schools, students will learn that they don’t need drugs or alcohol. We encourage our community and youth to ‘Go Purple’ as a sign that they take a stand against substance abuse. Our community needs to start having a conversation about the abuse of prescription drugs. 91 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose, and it is our goal to rid Talbot County of this issue. Talbot Goes Purple is a campaign where the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office and Tidewater Rotary team up with Talbot County Schools and the Mid-Shore Community Foundation to spread awareness of how dangerous it is to abuse prescription drugs.Talbot Goes PurpleOn September 19th and September 20th, former NBA basketball player Chris Herren will be running two in-school assemblies in addition to a community event at 7:00 p.m. on September 19th. Chris Herren nearly ruined his life with prescription drug abuse that slowly turned into a heroin addiction. Herren can speak firsthand about how awful drug abuse is and how dangerous it could be to your life. Herren has now been clean and sober for almost a decade and spreads his story to communities in need. We are looking forward to hearing and learning from his story. This September, Talbot Goes Purple and we hope that you can join in celebrating sobriety and solidarity against heroin use.Talbot Goes Purple

North Caroline Softball Advances to State Finals

The Preston Automotive Group would like to wish the North Caroline Lady Bulldogs softball team good luck when they play for the 2A Maryland State Championship at the University of Maryland on May 26th. These great athletes will go toe-to-toe with South Carroll for the right to call themselves the top 2A softball team in the State. The Lady Bulldogs have been absolutely dominating this year, reaching a jaw-dropping record of 23-0, including their most recent win coming in the State semi-finals against the Eastern Technical Mavericks at Bachman Park.

The contest was close, as the Bulldogs edged out the competition 3-2 behind the powerful bat of Megan Robbins and the speedy legs of Ali Ward. Robbins knocked in all three of those runs including Ward’s winning run. This huge win came after the Lady Bulldogs pulled out wins against powerhouses such as Queen Anne’s, Easton, and Rising Sun. The Lady Bulldogs’ road to the state championship finals has been nothing short of extraordinary, and your friends here at the Preston Automotive Group wish nothing but more success for the Lady Bulldogs in their quest for gold.

Nissan Partners With Habitat for Humanity

Nissan Habitat for Humanity

Nissan is proud to be a part of Habitat for Humanity’s first nationwide campaign #HomeIsTheKey. The goal of this campaign is to raise awareness and funds to improve society’s access to decent shelter. During the Month of April, for every single #HomeIsTheKey post on social media, Nissan will donate $1 to Habitat for Humanity, all the up to $250,000.

“Decent shelter is something we all need to thrive, and yet many in the U.S. still live in inadequate housing conditions, creating barriers to opportunity, success, stability and health,” says Colleen Finn Ridenhour, Senior Vice President of Development at Habitat for Humanity International. “We are grateful to Nissan for partnering with us in our efforts to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.”

Nissan Habitat for Humanity

We know that there is a critical need to address the housing issues in our society today. Nissan started teaming with Habitat over 12 years ago with a donation of 50 trucks and volunteers to aid the people of the Gulf Coast right after Hurricane Katrina. $14 million and 85,000 volunteer hours later, the family here at Nissan is still supporting Habitat for Humanity in whatever way we can.

“Studies have shown that a stable home plays a key role in positively influencing a family’s education, health, and financial opportunities,” stated Nissan North America’s Marketing Communications and Media vice president, Jeremy Tucker. “For this reason, Nissan invites our customers to help unlock a family’s future by joining us during the April campaign.”

Nissan is elated to be teaming with Habitat for Humanity to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through home ownership. Your friends here at Nissan are always looking for new ways to help the community around us, and the #HomeIsTheKey campaign is the perfect chance for us to jump in on a great cause. We hope you join in as well!
