1876 - Southern Pacific begins subdividing town of Newhall (original location at Bouquet Junction) [story]

Parkway Hyundai, located in Valencia, recently ran a promotion in which a single winner would receive $25,000. Bakersfield resident Sandra Graves has claimed the prize.

The promotion involved sending out mailers with a scratch-off. Beneath the scratcher was a number to hopefully correspond with a huge sign Parkway Hyundai kept in their dealership window

“When we started the promotion, we were excited to see so many Californians driving by our dealership to see if they had won,” said Steve Keefe, Parkway Motorcars General Manager.

parkway071615Graves received her mailer in Bakersfield – almost an hour and a half drive from the Parkway Hyundai location.

“She told us she was at home, going through her mail when she came across our promotion. After scratching her ticket and getting her number, she asked her son what he thought about it. He told her to go for it!” explained Keefe. “So, she called a friend and the two of them started the drive to us. It was quite funny when she told me she asked her friend, about halfway through the trip, if they should really go all the way.”

“We’ve come this far, why not?” Her friend told her.

After arriving at the dealership, Sandra was shocked to see her numbers matched those on the sign of the dealership.

Her reaction? “Well, let’s just say she freaked out in our showroom,” Keefe said, “but in the best possible way.”

Proudly serving the automotive needs of Southern California for over 25 years; Parkway Motorcars has become a staple in Valencia. Selling both new and used cars to their loyal customer base has earned them accolades from around the state.
