We did a car care class last spring and we’ve been meaning to blog about it. Called it Lipsticks and Dipsticks, and as promised the local Mary Kay Lady stopped by and gave out sample sized lipstick. This was mainly geared towards women; of course they being the gender that bears the stereotype oblivious to car care. We had a group of roughly 20 and talked about basic car care and why we check the fluids often, what sort of noises are unusual from a vehicle, what sort of things a mechanic looks for when a vehicle comes in, etc. The important part is we all had fun. This being a Saturday morning we had breakfast type snacks and also coffee. The women seemed really enjoy it, and it seemed that they were less apprehensive to bring a car to a mechanic. Most importantly they all learned something.
