DEW Haven

DEW Haven is more than a zoo; it’s also a rescue center. It is home to more than 200 species of animals. Many of the exhibits come from recyclable materials and function more like a farm than a standard zoo.

Go downtown

Downtown Farmington is where the University of Maine resides, and it’s also the cultural center of Maine. Many artists and musicians flock to the local art scene in Downtown Farmington. Plenty of local shops and restaurants provide you with channels for browsing and eating.

GMC and Chevy Towing Equipment: Improve Capabilities

GMC and Chevy towing equipment

If you want to improve your Chevy or GMC truck, there is a wide variety of GMC and Chevy towing equipment — from brake controllers to hitches. A number of accessories can improve performance and capability. These are just some of the many accessories you should consider getting if you need to tow and haul in the future.

Some of the most popular equipment includes brake controllers and hitches. A brake controller mounts to the dash area and can delay or moderate the trailer’s electrical braking system. Gale Banks Engineering offers a popular Brake Tuner device, while Tekonsha® has a much more affordable brake controller.

In terms of hitches, there are many options to choose from. Go with something that is durable, flexible, and stays connected to the chassis. CURT trailer hitches are among the top on the market, including the Curt Double Lock hitches. Go Rhino® and Trimax™ hitches come in handy as well, but we strongly encourage using Chevy or GMC hitches.

If you need fifth-wheel accessories, CURT and B&W offer great bang for your buck with high-quality fifth-wheel accessories. For instance, the A25 Fifth Wheel Hitch with a GM Puck System costs around $1200, but it will allow you to tow heavy loads like campers.

Stop in at our service department for more advice, and order an auto part for your GMC or Chevy vehicle on the Hight Chevrolet website.

Chevrolet Celebrates the COPO Camaro 50th Year Anniversary


2019 COPO Camaro 50th Year Anniversary

In honor of the COPO Camaro 50th Year Anniversary, we wanted to take a look back when it was first produced and discuss what Chevrolet is doing to commemorate this milestone.

In 1969, Chevy dealer Fred Gibb found a way to use the company’s special ordering system ―  the Central Office Production Order ― to add the ZL1 427 racing engine to the Camaro. After a lot of cajoling, he convinced Chevrolet to do so.

However, there was one problem. For the engine to be eligible for NHRA races, there had to be 50 units available for public sale. Gibb took the plunge and ordered all 50 himself. Eventually, other dealers followed suit, and a total of 69 COPO Camaros were produced that year.

To celebrate  the COPO Camaro 50th Year Anniversary, Chevrolet is releasing a special model called the 2019 COPO Camaro 50th Anniversary Special Edition. This unique model will come in Blue Metallic color similar to the Laguna Blue offered on the original models. It will also be available with the naturally aspirated LSX-based 427 racing engine.

Chevy will produce 69 exclusive models, which is the same amount that were produced in 1969. Customers can sign up for the chance to purchase one of these models online.

While the odds of getting a 50th Year anniversary COPO Camaro on our lot are not in our favor, the horsepower of the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro will put a smile on your face. Stop in and test drive it at Hight Chevrolet.
