Mother Nature Controls Car Colors

Beyond the recent devastating effects of Mother Nature, she now is controlling car colors.  Chevrolet and other automotive manufacturers have announced shortages on some colors as a result of the Japanese tsunami.  The shiny pigment called Xirallic used in some auto paint is only produced in a single plant in Japan owned by Merck.  Auto manufacturers use Xirallic to give metallic paints a sparkling appearance.  If you are looking for a Chevy in metallic gray, taupe, red and bright blue, you better hurry in while there is a selection.  Most production of these colors have stopped.

Our hearts go out to those suffering from these natural disasters, whether earthquakes, tsunamis or tornados.  For some, not having a shiny metallic red car might be a daily reminder of the power of Mother Nature and the devastation she can cause.

Our First Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Says Goodbye to Enumclaw and Hello to Wilbur, WA

Our first Chevrolet Camaro Convertible here at Gamblin Motors was on display on our showroom floor for the past couple weeks. This sleak Camaro created alot of buzz and excitement around the town and dealership, everyone wanting to catch a glimpse of the newly released convertible.

The new owners of the new 2011 Chevy Camaro came all the way from rural Wilbur, WA– population 866. Throughout the past couple years, the residents of Wilbur have made us their home dealership, not letting the nearly 5 hour drive stop them from coming to see us time and time again. Check out the below video by Scott Ledford  to see the Jensen’s take delivery of their new Camaro, along with a few other friends from Wilbur who made purchases as well.
