“The turn of the century ushered in the era of the automobile, and the machines that were once experimental curiosities became a critical piece of societal evolution,” states Mark Landis in an article titled “Southern California automobile history: The era of the horseless carriages” by The SUN.
And in Southern California, our cars are a way of life that extends past the realms of just business. Cars are given as gifts to commemorate special life milestones or celebrations. Car shows foster a community of auto lovers that meet in Newport Beach, Dana Point, and along the golden coast to show off their collections.
The automobile industry quite literally paved the way for drivers when the freeway system was introduced in Southern California in the 1950s and allowed drivers to reach downtown L.A. from Old Towne Orange in under an hour (with no traffic, of course).
For husband and wife duo and Orange County locals Taylor and Sandra, they understand how important it is for everyone in all situations to have access to their own automobile. They met at Santiago Middle School in Orange, got married in 2010, and in 2013 they started their business, DriveSmart Motors, located right here in Orange, California.
DriveSmart Motors offers a highly curated inventory featuring mostly one-owner, private-party cars, trucks and SUVs. They specialize in cars under $10k, however they carry a wide variety of years/makes/models. They also offer financial solutions for all credit types and a 30-second application on their website for a quick credit check.
“We’ve geared our dealership to help all people with any credit situation,” said Taylor, “We understand that, in these times of economic uncertainty, people still need transportation, and we’ve partnered with several local banks that allow us to finance literally any credit situation.”
Taylor and Sandra have your back this car shopping season, and we are proud to have these trusted partners right here in OTO. Visit them this week online or at (714) 469-4868 for more information. Have a great weekend everyone, and we will see you (driving) around Towne!
