Let's Talk About Privacy

Hi guys, it's Tay! This week's post is short and to the point. We're talking about your privacy which is super important. If you've been a long-time fan of Woodies or you're new here, you likely (hopefully) know how much we value our customers and real relationships.

In the marketing world, the concept of respecting people's "privacy" generally does not exist. Most businesses use pixels, cookies and other ways to gather your information. There's a lot that can be done with this information. If you haven't seen "The Social Dilemma", we highly recommend the watch! A majority of people don't know their information is stored when they visit most websites or input their information into a subscription box, make a purchase, etc. 

Woodies as a whole is very unique in the way we function, the type of content we market and how we advertise. It's important to us that you know our privacy policy and that we respect your privacy whole heartedly. 

So let's break it down. 

We take privacy very seriously at Woodies. When you make an order, you entrust us with information, and we promise to keep your information secure. The only information we may gather from you is your name, email address and basic order information (for our newsletter or so we can personally reach out to you with an awesome gift). All websites use cookies to collect data and we will never sell your information to a third-party and we do not collect any information from persons under the age of 13. We don't add a pixel to your web browser. We do offer the ability to join our newsletter and follow us on social platforms but we do not follow you around the web.

We believe in organic relationships. Our promise is to actively make changes and prevent new systems from forming which will violate your privacy. 

Thank you for being part of the Woodies family!

5 Unique Classic Cars

It's finally Wednesday, which means you've made it half way through another amazing week of life. Classic cars are a big part of Woodies so today we want to show you some classic cars we love! We hope you enjoy the ride.

1. 1973 Volkswagen Thing 

Captain's Special: The Volkswagen Type 181 is two-wheel drive, four-door and convertible. Some sweet things about this classic are that the car doors are removable, the windshield folds flat and the convertible roof can be removed. They were originally designed for the West German Army and entered the civilian market as the Kurierwagen. 

 

2. Town and Country Woodies Convertible 

The Town & Country Convertible was one of the most luxurious vehicles when it was introduced in 1945. The design was still based on the pre-WWII model while most luxury manufacturers began moving toward more streamlined designs after the war. The Town & Country maintained its beautiful appearance. 

 

3. 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air 

This sweet ride, and it's variants, have been frequently used in toys, movies, TV and music. It's known as an "auto icon". 

 

4. 1940 Pontiac Special Six 

Captain's Special: What more needs to be said about this incredibly unique ride? Silver-Streak styling and wood-bodied wagon. She's a beauty! 

 

5. 1958 MGA Roadster

I have a confession to make; I am obsessed with Roadsters. Out of them all, I think the 1958 MGA Roadster Twin-Cam is my favorite. The design dates back to 1951 and was built off the original MGA which is a sports car produced by MG. 

 

There is something sexy and romantic about classic cars. Which is your favorite?
