Welcome to Cupcakes & Cars - Car Care 101 for ladies

*2 hour workshop designed to teach you the basics of car care over cupcakes*



Hi! My name is Nicole, I'm a shop owner here at VIP Performance. If you would've asked me a few years ago to take my car in for repairs, that would've been my most dreaded task. The word ‘scam’ would be constantly running through the mind. I had no idea of how a car works & operates OR how an auto repair shop works. It was not the place I wanted to be and the headache I never wanted to deal with.

Now, after being in the auto repair industry, I see many other ladies feel the same way. The topic of how to care for your car or the basics of how a car runs it not something often talked about, especially for how reliant we are on our cars! So, I've started 'Cupcakes & Cars' where we talk about the basics of how a car runs, what you should know to properly maintain your car, what to do in case of emergencies & some basic 'how to's' under your hood.'

***Join me on Saturday if you're interested in going over the following***


Basics of maintenance & repairs

  • Oil changes - Why do you need them? And, how often should you be getting them?
  • Maintenance schedules - What’s your maintenance schedule? And what do you need to know about yours?
  • Check Engine Lights - What should you do when you see this light pop on?
  • When to STOP? - When is your car asking to be pulled over or repaired?

Basics of a Car & Engine

  • How does a car operate?
  • What are the basic components of your car? (Side note: Average car has 30,000 parts!)
  • Why do we fill it with gas every week?

How to navigate an auto repair shop

  • What should you ask your mechanic?
  • Understand how an auto repair shop operates
  • Tips on choosing an auto repair shop

Basics under your hood. We’ll learn how to

  • check your oil
  • check your tires & read tire pressure
  • Put on winter chains
  • Jump a battery


Fun fact - the average person spends 293 hours behind the wheel each year! Learning how to properly care for your car really is in one way of properly caring for yourself (& your family). In the long run, it saves money & hassle. And, it allows for increased confidence when your're in a situation where a car is failing. Additionally, proper maintenance allows you to resell your car at the highest value (always good to get money!). And, and and!!!... caring for cars is way easier than people think. I always thought engine mechanics were so complex, but it's just like a body & care is much more simple than I thought. So, join me Saturday January 26 at 11AM for Car Care 101.
