November home maintenance and local events

for the Austin Metro Area (A.M.A.)

Consumer news for those interested in purchasing cars and RV's: manufactures release new models in the fall, so the previous years vehicles tend to drop in price from October through December. But keep in mind that car lots can be pretty picked over by the time you ring in the New Year. A great local Austinite for your car needs is Dan Driskell #512.563.4965, Signature Auto! He has very nice pre owned vehicles. Dan is a friend and offices in the same building with his car lot under the cover of a parking garage!!
