We’re Giving Away Another Car: Wheels to Shine 2018

We’re Giving Away Another Car: Wheels to Shine 2018 As a Ventura-based business for over 30 years, we are aware of how uniquely beautiful this community is—we live steps away from the beach and are surrounded by wonderful people. Because of this, it is very important for us to give back to our community, which we have done in many different ways (financially, co-sponsoring beach cleanups, speaking to students in high schools, etc.) Then we realized — our mechanical skills are the most valuable thing we can give back to our community. We actually can change someone’s life. Wheels To Shine is an annual program we started in 2017, in which we donate a car to a deserving member of Ventura County. Last May, we gave a 2000 Volkswagen Golf to Marina Limon Porter, a formerly homeless single mother who works tirelessly on behalf of her family and community. This car changed Marina’s life, and, symbiotically, the lives of those around her. Thanks to Wheels to Shine, Marina was able to take on three jobs and play a bigger role in Step Up Ventura, a non-profit organization she supports. This year, we are giving away another Volkswagen; we need YOUR help to determine who it goes to. Along with the car, Concours will donate one year of free service to the recipient. This is an extraordinary opportunity to directly and immediately improve the life of someone committed to improving the lives of those around them. We can’t wait to meet this year’s recipient.

What is Wheels to Shine?

In May 2017, we’ll be giving away a 2000 Volkswagen Golf to someone in Ventura County who needs it. We did the work to get this car in excellent running condition, detailed, and ready to change someone’s everyday experience of life. We are stoked to meet the person who will drive this every day. Check it out: We’ve gotten the car ready to give away, but we want to make sure it goes to the person who’s life it would change the most. We really want to make a difference with this car. We need our community to help us choose a recipient. Do you know anyone in Ventura County who’s life would change if they had a great car? Nominate Them → Here’s why we’re doing it… “We” are the team at Concours Motors in Ventura. Concours Motors has been serving Ventura County families since 1982, with speciality parts and master technicians, specifically focused on European vehicles. We have been very lucky to continuously grow over the years, so that today most people who live in Ventura recognize our well-kept shop on Thompson. We believe in businesses should give back to the community that sustains them. We’ve had our doors open in the city of Ventura for 35 years. This means that we’ve had community members in our shop every day, Monday through Friday, for almost four decades. We’ve gotten to know and care about everyone and their families. The simple truth is, without the support and loyalty of our customers and our community, there would be no Concours Motors. And that’s why we think it’s so important to give back. We realized that the best way...
