Investing in community

Tarver family partners with local organizations for the betterment of Southwest Louisiana
 

          The price of new and pre-owned vehicles is going up, like everything else. According to Experian, one of the big three credit scoring agencies, the average car price now tops $34,000. That’s a considerable investment, one that calls for doing a little research before visiting the dealership.

          What car shoppers won’t find when they consult Kelly Blue Book, AutoTrader, Car and Driver or Consumer Reports is information about the values of the car dealership owner.

Toyota 86 Interior Features

The Toyota 86 is a popular sports car. Of course, that's partly due to performance. Any sports car should really be able to revv up and peel out. But the Toyota 86 is packed with great, comfortable interior features, too. Suede-style Granlux trim is added to the interior of this car to add a touch of class. It adds a touch of sophistication and a texture that feels great.

Even the steering wheel is sporty, with a smaller diameter and quick-ratio steering. It's wrapped in leather, so it looks and feels great, too. There are also integrated audio…

Lake Charles Toyota is different because its leadership is different. In a world where “connectivity” is synonymous with wireless technology, the Tarver family focus on connecting with each other, employees and with the Southwest Louisiana community, one-on-one and face-to-face.

Sam Houston High School Soccer

Coach Trey Jones has been tasked with rebuilding the soccer program at Sam Houston High School and he reached out to us for help. It turns out, he and his team are pretty good salesmen!

Then we made 10 gallons of Shawn's signature baked beans. At the end of the day, the SHHS soccer team made $4000. More than that, they learned…
