A Little History on Longships

Going as far back as at least the fourth century BC – archaeologically proven and documented – the longships are specialized Viking warships that come with a long Scandinavian history. Originally created and used by Vikings – A.K.A. Norsemen – for exploration, commerce, and warfare during the Viking Age. Many characteristics of longships, adopted by Anglo-Saxons and other cultures, continued to influence their shipbuilding for centuries.

LAMBORGHINI

`

The world of bullfighting was a prevalent part of Ferruccio Lamborghini, a Taurus and zodiac-inspired man, so it makes sense the bull would be key to the identity of the Lamborghini. In 1962, Ferruccio visited Don Eduardo Miura’s, Seville ranch – an acclaimed breeder of Spanish fighting bulls. He was very impressed by Miura’s majestic animals he adopted a raging bull as the automaker’s emblem.

LOTUS

A British automotive company, whose logo has not ever been officially disclosed, is commonly thought it’s related to Colin Chapman’s – Founder, expertise of the lotus flower and its depiction of Nirvana (in Buddhist philosophy – state of paradise.) The badge of yellow is said to portray bright days ahead. The central green lozenge is Britain’s Racing Green representing the racing origin of Lotus. At the top, the intertwined letters are Anthony Colin Bruce Chapman’s initials.

Cadillac

This emblem began as the family crest of Antoine Laumet de la Mothe – French explorer and founder of Detroit, invented the title sieur (sir) of Cadillac for himself. The baroque badge comes from the family’s coat of arms he invented – based on Baron of Lamothe-Bardigues, his previous neighbor. Six martlets – bird like a swallow without feet – were on the original badge. In 2000, golden quarters with a black horizontal stripe replaced the martlets.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt used a custom built bulletproof Cadillac after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Many world leaders and U.S. Presidents have utilized Cadillac as presidential vehicles.

Chevrolet

Louis Chevrolet, inspired from a local newspaper advert, designed the renowned “bow tie” logo and introduced it two-years after founding the company. It’s believed this may have been based on a Coalettes coals company advertisement.



CITROËN

The logo for the car company, founded by André Citroën a French industrialist, has an origin that may be connected to a trip to Łódź, Poland in 1919. André discovered innovative and unprecedented design for a chevron-shaped gear. He ended up buying the patent for the helical toothed mechanical gear that produces an axial force. The two chevrons are representative of an inter-meshing of two opposing gears.

We are the best and will not be beat! Now, here are the Fs, H, I, J, and K in our series.

FERRARI

This luxury sports car’s emblem was created based on Modena, Italy’s color, Italy’s flag, the Team Ferrari, and a suggestion of luck. Upon winning the Savio track race in Ravenna on June 17, 1923, founder Enzo Ferrari met Countess Paolina – the mother of Count Francesco Baracca who was a national WWI national hero and an Italian Air Force Ace. She asked Enzo to use her son’s red horse stating it would bring him good luck. It is thought that the Count had taken the horse from a German pilot’s plane he had shot down in WWI. Enzo agreed but used a black horse instead to honor the Count’s death and then used yellow as the background to represent the color of his birthplace, Modena. To represent the Team Ferrari, the initials SF – Scuderia Ferrari – were used.


FORD

First used in 1927, the blue oval holds Henry Ford’s signature, the company founder. Since 1909, the signature has remained mostly unchanged.


HYUNDAI

You may have thought this company, founded by Ju-yung, South Korean entrepreneur businessman, in 1967 emblem is just an italicize Honda emblem, but not so. It is mean to be a stylized trust handshake between two people, representing consumer and company, and the company leaning in.


INFINITI

There are two official interpretations for Infiniti with both involving the upward-facing triangle. The first depicts a highway facing towards the future with the second depicting Mount Fuji, which represents the Japanese nationality and quality at its highest point.



JAGUAR

Originally called SS Cars, renamed in 1945, the Jaguar evolved from an old SS model and to illustrate forward and grace in motion, the leaping Jaguar ornament was selected.



KOENIGSEGG

Christian von Koenigsegg, Koenigsegg Founder, comes from German origin. “Von” most often indicates nobility. Koenigsegg ancestry is of German-Romanic Empire Knights of the Middle-Ages. The brand’s badge of red and gold rhombuses is a version of the family’s ancient crest originating from the Swabia region.

So there it is. The “F, H, I, J, and K” list features economy to luxury vehicles, sport, horsepower, and durability with workhorse thrown in for good measure. We buy cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs of all makes and models, including luxury and exotic, and cars and trucks of the everyday blue collar Americans too.

Know Hidden Meaning in a Carmaker’s Emblem Before You Sell Your Car – List B

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 22, 2019

As we said in the A’s list, not only do we buy cars, give you a high instant cash offer, make it so you sell your car quick and get cash in the bank FAST, SAFE, and EASY, but we’re your place for information you may not know about. For instance, we’re doing a series by alphabet letting you in on the hidden meaning a carmaker's emblem that people instantly recognize. We want people to know we buy cars that are not so expensive, luxury expensive and exotic car expensive. Car Buyer USA also has a fleet program and buy where we buy from small businesses and mid-sized fleets. We pretty much cover a lot of ground in the car buying business, so when you’re thinking, “sell my car, truck, van, or SUV,” think CarBuyerUSA before you sell your car. We’re the best and will not be beat! Now, let’s take a look at the Bs.

Bentley

During the WWI, Bentley began manufacturing aircraft engines so it just made sense to go with wings. If you look close, you’ll count ten feathers on the left and eleven feathers on the right. The number of feathers on either side of the wings has varied throughout history. The color silver expresses the logo’s sophistication.


BMW

The initials BMW originally stood for Bayerische Motoren Werke in German – English translation Bavarian Motor Works. This multinational company founded in 1916, presently produces motorcycles, but they’re best known for automobiles. The black outer circle is derived from Rapp Motorenwerke’s logo, BMW’s predecessor. The flag of Bavaria is represented by the blue and white checkered rounder.

Do you own an BMW and thinking “sell my car”? See how we work, get an instant cash offer, and sell your car quick. We buy cars fast.

BUGATTI

This is a favorite of mine and I’ve said for quite a few years now, I will have this thing. Meh, what’s life without dreams, right?

Ettore Bugatti’s – the brand’s founder – initials are represented in the motif within the oval. The origin of the red oval consisting of 60 red dots is conflicted. There are two options that are both plausible; Bugatti’s lack of gaskets and the safety wires in the engines, or they’re pearls indicating grandeur.

So there you have it. The list of B’s in its own right epitomizes luxury and exotic, which by the way, we buy exotic cars too.

Before you sell your car, think about us. We’re your dedicated used car buying experts and we buy cars fast, safe, and easy, even if your vehicle has been in an accident and now drives and looks as good as the day you drove it off the lot. What’s more, we’re your total loss thresholds (TLT) experts and we give you the highest instant cash offer for post-accident vehicles in as little as 20-seconds. Once you have your offer, you can sell your car quick for the highest amount you’ll find. Maybe you don’t know what diminished value is or maybe would like to know more, if so take look here.

Know Hidden Meaning in a Carmaker’s Emblem Before You Sell Your Car – the A’s

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, March 13, 2019

Not only do we buy cars and you can get an instant cash offer to sell your car quick to us, but we are your place for interesting information. What’s in a carmaker’s emblem? Are there hidden meanings? You bet. Carmaker’s emblems are something everyone can instantly recognize at a quick glance. So where do their meanings come from? We want you to know before you sell your car, so let’s look at the A’s first.

ABARTH

This one is based on Carlo Abarth’s – company founder – astrological sign. Located at top is the Italian flag and the color red which is Italy’s national racing colors. Today you can find the badge on Fiats.


ACURA

You may think the letter “A” represents the first letter of the name of this one, but actually, the logo depicts the caliper tool that’s used to measure thickness. This alludes the company’s efforts to achieve engineering excellence for its vehicles. Another interesting characteristic is if you look close enough you’ll see there’s an “H” within the logo. This “H” indicates Acura’s link to Honda, its parent company.

Do you own an Acura and thinking “sell my car”? See how we work, get an instant cash offer, and sell your car quick.


ALFA ROMEO – ALFA

ALFA ROMEO – ALFA is the acronym for Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili and the surname Romeo is for the businessman who purchased the company in 1915. On the left is a red cross which is Milan’s symbol. On the right you’ll find the insignia of the House of Visconti – a crowned viper swallowing a Moorish man


ALPINA

The history of Alpina isn’t one you’d relate to when thinking “sell my car”, rather you’d be thinking, “I need to type memo.” This carmaker’s roots lies in producing typewriters by the Alps. The company’s badge has a Weber carburettor (carburetor in America) and a crankshaft. The carburettor represents its close relationship with BMW, which has BMW’s blessing in producing about 1500 BMW-base cars per year.


AMG

Almost always you see the AMG logo on the back of Mercedes, though a boring fact, the reason for three letters is very self-explanatory. Affalterbach, Germany is where the Mercedes-AMG factory is located. In the left of the logo’s circle is a stream and tree referencing Affalterbach’s flag, and the spring and the valve stands for the factory.


ASTON MARTIN

Lionel Martin co-founded the company and Aston comes from his success at Aston Hill Climb. In 1927, the “wings” was chosen representing speed, and rumor has it he was inspired by the Bentley’s “Winged B”.


AUDI

August Horch, founder of Audi, left his company and was blocked from using his namesake for any other businesses. As a result, when his son suggested the name “Audi”, he used it. In the German language, the word horsch translates to “listen” and translates into “audi” in Latin. The logo derives from Auto Union, which in 1932 was the merger of the four major brands, Audi, DKW, Wanderer, and Horch. To signify the union of each brand silver rings were chosen, and the color silver represents Germany’s national racing color.

There you have it; you now know the hidden meaning of the “A” in carmakers’ emblems.

Before you sell your car we hope you’ll think about us, we’re your used car buying dedicated experts. We buy cars fast, safe, and easy, even if your vehicle looks and drives as good as new after an accident. What’s more, we are the experts on total loss thresholds (TLT) and we still give you the highest instant cash offer in as little as 20-seconds and you can sell your car quick for top dollar.

Will Tatiana Calderón Will Be the First Woman to Sit In a Formula 2 Seat – What’s All the Fuss?

Joseph Coupal - Monday, February 25, 2019
Car Buyer USA - We Buy Cars

The Arden Team says, yes! News broke on February 22, 2019, that Tatiana Calderón would be joining their Formula 2 team for the 2019 season. This will make Tatiana the first woman driver since the GP2/F2’s inception – 2005 – of modern running. However, will she actually sit in a seat? Race fans took to social media in an outrage claiming her race results history prove she is not a good fit for the series. By the way, before we get into this more, we buy cars and you can sell your car quick to us. Fast, safe, and easy really is the best way to sell a car. Get an instant cash offer now and stop worrying “how to sell my car quick!”

Speaking of history, it has been proven time and time again that women really shouldn’t be doing anything that’s a “man’s thing”. Take voting, welding, serving in the armed forces, flying a plane, or running a corporation for instance; why would motorsports be any different? Shutter the thought that Susie Wolff received an MBE, Danica Patrick for racing in NASCAR, Simona de Silvestro in IndyCar, Natalie Decker in NASCAR Truck Series, and so on and so on. You get the point.

Sure, Calderón has many “nevers” under her helmet and the critics are all over it; but what do the critics say of Sean Gelael’s four years in GP2/F2 with not a single win? Or, his record of never finishing better than a massive spot called 15th place? Then there is Roberto Merhi; what do they say about his demotion from F2 to F1 and still not scoring a top 10 spot? The list can go on and on here too.

What are some of Calderón’s accomplishments? She was the first female karting driver to win a national championship in Columbia. In the 2001 Pro Mazda Championship, she finished 6th overall. She was the first woman in the British F3 series to secure a podium and the first to lead a European F3 race. Not to mention she has served as a Sauber – Alfa Romeo racing – development driver with more than a few impressive results testing on the track.

Given the right situation, Tatiana Calderón has proven she is a competitive driver and has earned the right and is coming into her own; and she has the qualifications to be the first woman to sit in a Formula 2 seat. Seriously, what’s all the fuss about? We buy cars from women every day and we have a message for Tatiana. Sell your car quick to Car Buyer USA and we will put cash in your bank FASTer than F2’s lap, so SAFE there will be no crashing into a wall, and as EASY as crossing the finish line; and show ‘em what you are made of on your first run! Get an instant cash offer now, Tatiana Calderón and we will treat you like the winner you are. (Full disclosure: anyone thinking “sell my car quick” and looking for the best way to sell a car, it is here. Really.)

I Want to Sell My Car Quick – How to Get Rid of Smoke Smell

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 12, 2019

It doesn’t matter if you plan on purchasing a used car or if you’re thinking “I want to sell my car quick”, or you’re just starting to throw the idea around. If you don’t like the smell of cigarettes and the car you find, or the one you’re selling reeks with smoke, you’ve dropped the pool of choices way down. Here at Car Buyer USA we don’t mind if the cars we take in are from previous owners who liked to light up while driving and we are experts at getting it removed. We buy cars every day all over the U.S. and many don’t only need deodorizing, but deep cleaning. We realize people of all walks-of-life, selling a car or not, may want to get rid of a smoke smell and might need a little help on how to go about it. Nevertheless, whether you’re going to sell your car quick to us, do a private sale on your own, or trade your vehicle in, it’s a good idea to get rid of smoke before a potential buyer slips away; it’s really the best way to sell a car if you’re looking to optimize the sell price.

Clean and Air It Out First

  1. Remove all belongs and every sliver of trash.
  2. Vacuum ALL the interior, this means all surfaces front to back and side to side; don’t forget to vacuum the seat covers well if you have them.
  3. Remove and vacuum the floor mats and seat covers (run them through a washer if the tag instructions allow). Note: If the floor mats are machine washable, we don’t recommend washing these together. A hose works well for the mats and laying them outside and let them air dry works well too.
  4. If possible use a handheld vacuum, or one with an attachment that will get into the deepest crannies.
  5. Clean! Clean! Clean your vehicle’s inside well. Note: Refer to your vehicle’s user manual for cleaning recommendations.
  6. A 1:1 ration of white vinegar and water in a spray bottle coupled with a microfiber cloth is a good choice for the steering wheel, interior side panels, dashboard, console, etc.
  7. # 6 may work well for all glass and mirrors (inside and out), but a good class cleaner will remove cigarette residue as well.

Time to Ventilate

  1. Start the engine.
  2. Roll all the windows down.
  3. Spray an odor neutralizer into all the vents.
  4. Set the air conditioner to the lowest setting and turn the fan on high. Note: Do NOT turn the recycle the inside air on. You want the outside air to help flush out the smoke scent of the car.
  5. Change the a/c over to heat and be sure it’s on the highest setting.
  6. Repeat steps #3 and #4.

Hopefully, following these tips will omit the problem, but sometimes even the best efforts won’t remove a cigarette scent from a vehicle. Drastic measures to get it take care of would be to turn to reupholstering, new carpets, and new roof material (headliner).
