World of Wheels Coming to Omaha in March

Class Chevy Cars

Every year, World of Wheels comes to Omaha to showcase the largest custom car show collection in the region. A variety of different vehicles are featured at World of Wheels, but at the heart of the event during its 57-year run is the hot rods. With innovation and quality craftsmanship taking center stage, this event is an awesome place for automobile enthusiasts to gather together and get excited about what they love most.

Almost all spectators who come to World of Wheels end up coming back for another round; in fact, an event surveys shows that 45% of guests have visited four or more times. Guests can submit their own vehicles to the event and be show participants or simply come to enjoy the show, including custom vehicles from the original manufacturers. Additionally, Friday will feature a special Student Career Day for students interested in pursuing a career in the auto industry.

This will be the 64th year of this O’Reilly Auto Parts sponsored event in Omaha, with tickets at the gate costing $18 for adults and $6 for kids, or discounted tickets sold through O’Reilly coming out to $16 for adults and $5 for children. Kids under five get in for free. There will even be live music, guest appearances, and special events at World of Wheels.

We here at Huber Chevrolet hope to see you there!

Practice Responsible Driving Habits During Omaha Beer Week

Impaired Driving

Nothing warms you up during a cold, Omaha winter like a pint of tasty beer and a delicious, warm meal. Thankfully both of these things are easy to come by during Omaha Beer Week, which takes place this year from February 15 to February 24. While you’re out enjoying special beer week events and drinking unique foamy beverages from local breweries and bars, be sure to practice safe, responsible driving habits.

Have a Designated Driver

The best way to enjoy the many events of the Omaha Beer Week safely is to secure a designated driver for the night. Pick someone you can trust to remain sober, and let them be your chauffeur. Having a designated driver assigned ahead of time takes away any question as to who is the most fit to drive. If you have to ask, chances are no on should be behind the wheel.

Have a Backup Plan

If, for some reason, your designated drive falls through, you need to find another sober ride home. Many bars and breweries are more than happy to call a cab for you so that you can get home safely. You can also download rideshare apps ahead of time so that you can call a car on your own.

We at Huber Chevrolet wish you a happy and safe Omaha Beer week.

Sedans vs. Hatchbacks: Which Do You Prefer?

2019 Chevy Cruze Sedan & Hatchback

Sedans are predominantly the major vehicle drivers go with in the US if they don’t drive a truck or SUV. But the five-door hatchback counterparts are growing in popularity and offer a wholly different driving experience. So where do you fit in the sedans vs. hatchbacks debate?

Sedan drivers love their vehicles because the market is so vast and there are so many options in various sizes—from compact to large. Some of these sedans have been around for decades and thus offer some peace of mind in terms of reliability. Other drivers like sedans because they offer more privacy with a locking trunk, whereas hatchbacks expose the contents of the back of your car with major window.

However, hatchbacks are highly sought after because of their superior resale value—partially because they are less common and thus harder for used car buyers to find. Hatchbacks are also more practical with rear folding seats that greatly improve the cargo area for luggage, groceries, and sporting equipment. In most cases of a vehicle with a sedan and hatchback variant, the hatchback boasts the superior cargo space. Hatchbacks are also often considered more visually appealing, likely because they stand out more easily in a sea of sedans on American roadways. If you like to make a bold statement on the road, go with a hatchback.

Here at Huber Chevrolet, we have a wide array of sedans and hatchbacks for you to explore.

See A Christmas Carol at Omaha Community Playhouse

Christmas CarolingThe Omaha Community Playhouse continues its annual tradition with another fantastic run of A Christmas Carol, the classic holiday play based on Charles Dickens’ 1843 novella. Ticket pricing and availability depends on the day and time of the show, so visit the OCP website now and grab your tickets!

Featuring wealthy Ebenezer Scrooge, the unfortunate people who work for him, and a series of ghosts trying to make Scrooge a better person, A Christmas Carol reminds us to look beyond materialism and appreciate the true joy of Christmas: giving, kindness, and being with family.

The Omaha Community Playhouse’s production exemplifies the emphasis on community and altruism in the play, since every part of the play from costumes and the orchestra down to the cast dinner is being sponsored by a local business. Huber Chevrolet is proud to be part of a community so devoted to lifting up the arts and the people of Omaha.

Despite the spooky element of the ghosts, A Christmas Carol is suitable for all ages, and your whole family is sure to enjoy the elaborate costuming, eye-catching special effects, and brilliant performances by the OCP actors and orchestra musicians, all of whom are locals of Omaha and the surrounding area.

We here at Huber Chevrolet wish you and your family a happy holiday season.
