Buying a car out of state
  Cars can be like shoes; shopping for them may involve trying them on and seeing how they fit. Other times, your previous test drives have informed your decision, and all you really need to choose now is the color. And sometimes, you find the car that you're ready to buy...at a dealership that is across state lines from where you live. Hmmm. You might have questions at this point. That's normal. There are certainly things involved in buying an out of state vehicle that you need to be aware of, but we'll do what we can to give you… Read More

Tailgate parties – The sizzling new American tradition
I imagine myself being asked, “Would you like to eat a picnic-style meal with a few friends in a parking lot, using your vehicle as the kitchen/shelter?” My reply in this situation would be, “I believe that I would not.” Or would I? Well, despite my surprise at how much people might enjoy and desire to engage in such an event, they do. They do very much. Having a tailgate party, or simply “tailgating”, is born of the needs and opportunities of the moment, and has arisen through the public consciousness into the strata of culinary efforts reserved for foodies.… Read More

KBB's #1 most confortable car under $30,000: the 2014 Chevrolet Impala
When I was a kid, my dad was a Buick man. We're talking about the 70's through the 80's here, and fiberglass and polymers were only just starting to make an appearance on the exteriors and bodies of cars. That meant there was a lot of metal. And that meant a lot of weight. And as the distinguished Isaac Newton might have pointed out (if he were a car guy), when cars hit bumps in the road, those bumps display the magnitude of their own opposing force. As thus: "WHANNNG!" So when I got in the deeply plush, velvety seats… Read More

Are you looking to replace your dinged-up car, and trying to do it with dinged-up credit? You're not alone. Buying a car with bad credit is something that many people have to face. If you need a new car, you've generally got two options: Buy outright with cash or get a loan. There are pros and cons to each of these.

However, according to Edmunds.com, one of the problems with buying a used car is that for… Read More
