Ed Gorczyca has lived a lot of life in his nine decades

August 28th, 2013

The Parma Heights resident just turned 90 on April 26.  He freely admits that he loves coming to Yorktown Service Plaza.

“I’m here anywhere from three to five times a day,” he said with a big smile.  At least one of those visits is for a cup of coffee, as was the case on a recent sunny Monday afternoon.  Another visit will be for his daily purchase of lottery tickets.

Gorczyca has been a “regular” at Yorktown since 1973.

A widower, Gorczyca thinks of the staff and patrons of Yorktown as his extended family.  He’s a father of three, and grandfather of two.

Gorczyca is a highly decorated Army Infantry war hero, having served at Anzio in World War II.  For his military service, he was awarded two Bronze Stars, two Purple Hearts – visible signs of the injuries ...[more]

Protect Your Windshield This Spring - Yorktown Service Plaza

April 26th, 2013

Windshield RepairThis spring, be aware of the seasonal changes that can impact or damage your windshield. Windshield replacement can become costly, and sometimes the damage cannot be repaired. Driving with a broken, cracked, or chipped windshield can obscure visibility and can even cause a traffic citation in some areas. Cracks and chips can spread quickly if left unattended and may require a full replacement for the best safety on your vehicle.

Chips or stars caused by rocks can often remain unnoticed until they begin to spread. During the spring, snow and ice melt, bringing more small rocks into the roadways with the runoff, causing hazardous rock spray. Driving too closely behind heavy trucks or larger vehicles that can flip up rocks behind them can cause a windshield to be repeatedly hit by fl ...[more]

This Season, Beware of Potholes

April 8th, 2013

 

Flat Tire RepairAs the weather warms up, the road hazards of snow and ice seem to fade with the cold, but with changing seasons come new risks to be aware of. Springtime tends to be wet and rainy, with melting snow and ice, and climbing temperatures. This becomes a perfect recipe for creating potholes, those sneaky annoyances that can wreak havoc on your tires. During the winter, cracks form due to moisture and ice expanding weakened fractures in the road surface. As the cracks get worse they can become torn out of the road by the weight of passing cars, winter chains, or studded tires. In areas with heavy spring and winter rainfall sinkholes can form with the potholes, creating even deeper road hazards. Because potholes can form on any road surface, keeping a diligent eye on road will help protect your from th ...[more]

Oil Change Service: Why Your Vehicle Loves It!

March 25th, 2013

Oil ChangeThe absolute easiest thing that you can do for the life of your vehicle is to be diligent about getting regular oil changes.

January 22nd, 2013

If there were a secret to keeping vehicles running forever it would be ‘preventative maintenance’. Your vehicle’s parts will wear out over time, and nothing will last forever, but the key to keeping your car or truck running for as long as possible is regular, scheduled preventative maintenance. This includes oil changes, tire rotations, fluid flushes, and tune ups. Checking and replacing small parts over time can help reduce the chances of a big failure in your engine, saving you time and money in the long run.
