We Buy Cars at the Auction Turns into Mustang Sally

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 28, 2017

How the heck does “we buy cars” turn into “Mustang Sally”? Watching some big auction on Sling TV last night sparked a conversation about my love for this icon. America’s love affair with the Mustang – every single model since the first one rolled out – partnered up with a song that’s been keeping us on the dance floor for decades, is still going strong. “Mustang Sally” goes all the way back to 1965 with this road muscle, when there was a frenzy surrounding the Mustang. I’m pretty confident no one would have said “buy my car”, but rather “get away from my car!” Except for Sir Mack Rice, he wanted nothing to do with it since he liked big cars, like the Cadillac and the Lincoln. I always find it amazing when something as simple as a mistake gone wrong turns into major invention, or a joke turns into an American Icon. And “Mustang Sally”? We ALL know it.



"...so we was driving down Riverside Drive one day in New York City... He looked up there on the sign and he said, "Hey, that's that Mustang right there."

Mustang Mama just wasn’t cutting it.

“…Mustang Mama, I had a chorus in there ride Sally ride Mustang Mama slow your Mustang down. But that was very negative.”

Thank you, Ms. Aretha Franklin. If it was “Mustang Mama”, I wouldn’t be here writing about it.

“…why don’t you change your song to “Mustang Sally” cause that’s what you’re saying a lot of?”

Have a listen to Sir Mack Rice telling the story. It’s pretty cool.



A little factoid for you – the very first retail Mustang sold, and I do me the very first one, was a baby blue Pony in a back room covered up with a tarp. And guess what? As a woman I am proud to announce it was sold to 22-year old Teacher, Gail Wise; and in December 2013, she still owned it! What a wise woman, that Gail.

If you have a vintage Mustang, we realize the chance of you selling it to us is closer to “slim to none”. But if you have one, shiny new or one that’s been around a while sell your car to us. We’ll give you top dollar for it and have the cash in your hands lickty split… even if her name is Sally.

Ever Had Bad GPS Directions Waste Your Drive Time? You’re Not Alone!

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, June 22, 2017

Picture this; I’m a food blogger and a bit of an influencer around these parts which means I get invited to tons of restaurants and events often all over the Greater Atlanta area. How does a bunch of foodie stuff relate to a car? Well, I depend on my GPS to get me to places I’ve never been before. Ha! Truth be told, even to repeat places! The mind ain’t what it used to be! But there have been moments when the GPS on my Android LET. ME. DOWN. Do you know how scary Atlanta can be at night? This may be the peach state, but dark parking lots and empty buildings are NOT peachy! Have you ever had bad GPS directions waste your drive time? Get you there late? Make you cancel on the person waiting on you? Land you in a dark creepy neighborhood? I swear I could do better driving blindfolded sometimes. I should just let CBU buy my car and stick to the bus and train. At least I’d get there on time, even earlier most of the time.


Car Buyer USA - GPS

Ok, my mind is sharp as a tack (yes, I know this is subjective), but I still use GPS to go everywhere no matter where it is. It’s not just strictly for the shortest directions from point A to point Z; it recalculates in this FUNNER than a kick in the teeth traffic. Yep, I said funner. That officially makes it a real word now. Feel free to use it at will. You’re welcome.

It may not sound like a big number, but when it’s you sitting in some location scratching your head, “Huh? This is it? Where is everybody? Maybe it’s around back?” you’ll think 29 hours is HUGE! Forbes reports a study where MyTaxi found drivers waste nearly 29 hours every year due to poor or inaccurate GPS routing.


Car Buyer USA - GPS

    “Nearly half (47%) of all respondents reported becoming so upset with their nav systems at times that they’ve gotten into a “verbal disagreement” with their devices, with 31% admitting to being drawn into a shouting match with the system’s robo-navigator, “as if it was a real person.” As reported by Forbes.

Totally not embarrassed to say I belong in the 31%. But seriously, a study on this? MyTaxi sure did go to a lot of trouble to get you to use their app. But I guess if you’ve ever had bad GPS directions waste your drive time, this might be a good Android or iOS app. Oh, and Car Buyer USA? We’ll happily let you sell your car to us so you can take a taxi. We’d hate for you to be late.

10 Reasons to Sell Your Car – We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVs

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Ok, here’s the thing. Accidents whether they’re severe, minor, or a simple fender bender are never funny, but there are a few in here that give the “never funny” a run for its money. Here are 10 reasons to sell your car and proof CBU will buy any car. By the way, even though I may say my friends are idiots, I say it with love; and for the people that gave me these great shots to use, I made sure no one was badly hurt before using them.

Car Buyer USA Saves Dog Rescue!

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 20, 2017

This is a sale we’re very proud to be a part of; Car Buyer USA helps save a dog rescue. When Louise called and told us, “I need someone to buy my car. It’s been sitting out front for a month now. I need the money. How are these dogs going to eat?” It was clear she was at the end of her rope and playing her last card. You can imagine how great it felt to tell Louise not to worry, that We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVs and do it fast.


Car Buyer USA bought 2008 Honda Civic

Louise goes on to tell us her husband has a pacemaker and it hasn’t been doing its job over the last few months, and he’s been in and out of the hospital twice. Her husband, “The Chief”, had to quit his part time job, so the money they have set aside for emergencies was getting low.


Car Buyer USA Saves Dog Rescue

Immediately Louise and The Chief had a special place in our hearts. One, they use their garage to house dogs in desperate need of a new families. Two, you could hear how scared Louise was for “her dogs”. And three, both Louise and The Chief had enough on their plates to worry about. That day it felt better than usual to tell her “Sell your car to us. We buy cars and we’ll come to you to do it.” A few days later when we picked up her 2008 Honda Civic, well that was a great day. Car Buyer USA put cash in Louise’s hand and saved their dog rescue pals from going hungry. We very happy she found us and they no longer needed to worry they were down to one week of food; and btw, her dogs don’t eat dog food. She cooks for them.

Craigslist Deaths May 2017 – Will You Be Next?

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Will you be next when you need to sell your car? That may sound dramatic but Craigslist has many fatalities. Not to mention tons of close calls and injuries; I could never list them all here, or even post links to ¼ of the news coverage. So I settled for just a couple of Craigslist Deaths in May 2017, to share with you. FYI, “(Month listed here) Craigslist’s Dead” will be a monthly post to keep you aware of the dangers that never seem to end. If the Craigslist world gets lucky, maybe it’ll be “Craigslist – The Not So Dead”. Wow, how could a close call be lucky?

May 8th – And at Carrabba’s Restaurant in broad daylight no less!

1 killed near Cumberland Mall during Craigslist deal; suspect sought

May 5th – Just because he wanted to sell his truck.

Car Buyer USA - Missing Man after Craiglist Meeting

Using Craigslist, no matter what the reason, is a huge risk; I know it, you know it, and if you didn’t know it… pay attention here because this is big – you now know it! No matter who you’re selling your car to it should be easy, safe, and fast so you don’t feel like “it won’t happen to me” and turn to CL.

The big problem is, most of time, to sell your car is to play the buyers game – haggle and dicker, car salesmen lowballs, private buyer is late or misses meeting you all together, those emails!, you don’t hear back, a buyer tells you they’re interested and never calls back, buyer is on time but lowballs you with that tempting cash in his hand, etc. We buy cars and make it easy. We buy cars safely. We buy cars fast. Boom! Problem solved! No playing the CL roulette game of risk!

We’re so convinced you’d be better off searching for companies that buy cars we want you to hop on Google! Sure, we want you to choose us, but we put your safety first. So when you think of running a “buy my car” ad on Craigslist, don’t be a knucklehead, stop and think. We’d much rather have you sell your car to one of our competitor companies that buy cars, or even wishing the inconvenience of going into a dealership upon you rather than have you risk your safety. Getting death for selling your car is not a good tradeoff. Call us or fill out our short form when you’re ready to sell your car, truck, van, or SUV; we promise the cash we put in your hands will be the best tradeoff you can get.

If Only I Had a Car to Sell – What Can Your Vehicle Do for a Kid?

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 13, 2017

A week ago something happened. It’s personal for me and I’m now on a mission to help; and nope, this isn’t to ask you to help my cause. While sitting here thinking how I can help raise money for these kids it crossed my mind, “If only I had a car to sell.” If I did, I absolutely would; and I wouldn’t even bother searching the web for companies that buy cars. I wouldn’t waste my time. I already know who to call. Believe me when I tell you, Car Buyer USA is not only my go-to, but YOUR go-to as well. In a time when it could be your family or friend in need, you want to get the most cash for a vehicle you can; and you want that fast. Let’s face it, if there’s no money for food to put on the table, they won’t eat.

Car Buyer USA - Cash for a vehicle

I’m not putting the Go Fund Me link here, because I don’t think it’s cool to use this blog to get you to donate and I feel like I’d be exploiting my cause since I get paid to write here. I’m writing this story, because it’s a reality. People pass away every day and leave their children behind devastated. Some are fortunate and have a 2nd parent or family to step in. Some, well, their circumstances are quite as fortunate in their tragedies. It’s for these children and people I write this for; and you, that person with the heart the size of the earth. Maybe you’ve been the chosen one, or you’re like me and you’re wondering, “How can I help?”

Car Buyer USA - Car for Sale

If you are in the middle of a brainstorm to figure out the simple ways, odd ways, best ways, unique ways, and out-of-the-box ways to raise cash to go with all the normal traditional ways to raise money for someone in need – for ANY REASON – remember something. We buy cars easy, safe, and fast. If you have an extra car, truck, van, or SUV, and you’ve been thinking of selling it or it’s one you know you don’t need; please consider what it can do for someone in need. If you decide to sell your car, sell it to CBU. We’ll give you cash in as little as a few days and you can use it to help to make someone’s life easier. How am I going to include CBU to turn my “If only I had a car to sell.” into cash for these kids? I’m going to ask people to consider what I asked you to; consider what can your vehicle do for a kid and feel great today!

We Buy Cars and Shiny Car Lighters Too

Joseph Coupal - Monday, June 12, 2017
Car Buyer USA 1280 General Lee

Yep, we buy cars. Nope, Car Buyer USA didn’t buy the General Lee; but if we had you’d be looking at a dash cam video of my “test drive”. See that lighter laced in diamonds? That isn’t something the General Lee would have ever been caught dead in I’m sure; it’s too country boy cool for that. So what is that lighter attached to? The 2008 Dodge Charger that just rolled in on the lot here. I guess when we say We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVs; we mean even those whose chrome isn’t the only shiny thing they’re sportin’. They can even have a shiny car lighter too.


Car Buyer USA - Lighter Laced in Diamonds

Since I’ve already brought up the most iconic Dodge Charger ever, I may as well give you a few more that made it onto the big screen.

1968 Dodge Charger R/T in Bullitt (1968)

A movie with one of the most iconic car chases ever; Steve McQueen in his Bullit, a 1968 Ford Mustang 390 GT and stuntman Bill Hickman in the 1968 Dodge Charger R/T. Between the two cars, the Charger was faster than the Mustang; so the during for the film shooting thinner tires were put onto the Charger to slow it down for the chase scene. Seriously Bill? Why not just ease up on the gas pedal?

1970 Dodge Challenger in Vanishing Point (1971)

Cut to scene – ACTION! In one Charger, a cop; in the other, the bad guy being chased by the cop. What? It takes a Mopar to catch a Mopar.

1970 Dodge Charger R/T in Fast And The Furious (2001)

One of my favorite movies! I loved the stop light scene of Vin Diesel and Paul Walker when that light turned green.

There are other movies where the American Muscle Dodge Charger has people sitting in their seats leaning into that curve, and slamming on their brakes then pushing it to the floor; the list could go on. But I need to get back to where I started this; that lighter and that We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVs with or without shiny things. So, if you want to sell your car and you too have a shiny lighter, good. We’re looking for another one. Give us a call or fill out our short form. Either way you’ll get an instant offer!

An Outhouse – A Truck – A Boom Box – Winner?

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 07, 2017
Frozen Lake Luzern in upstate NY

Ok, I’m going to be up front right from the get-go; but first I should say I love every one of these guys and this one in particular was a close friend. This story is about idiots that definitely know how to have fun. I think the “fun trigger” – a.k.a. 1 brain cell – in all of the 5 brain cells inside their noggins MUST BE HUGE. Ruler of their bubble headed universe. The King. Why do I say this? Not so long ago one friend earned his nickname on Lake Luzern in upstate NY. I was absolutely dumbfounded. He sold one of his trucks to buy parts for his outhouse. Should’ve looked online for companies that buy cars, he would’ve found us; we buy cars and pay more. His outhouse could’ve flushed him into the winner’s circle. What? An outhouse? The winner’s circle?

Winter Outhouse in Lake Luzern, NY

If you ask me, one he should’ve just used parts from the truck he sold. Two he should’ve used the other 4 brain cells and designed his outhouse to look like a “racecar”. And genius #three, a “boom box” strapped on the front of that sucker cranked up playing a hotrod motor revving… totally would’ve snagged 1st place for Best Outhouse 2013! Heck, he might’ve even taken 1st place from the keg outhouse and won the race too. Imagine, all those idiots on a frozen lake thinking a car was chasing them. LOL Distraction!! (I’m laughing right now btw.) Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! He really should have asked me what to do. See, there’s idiot reason #1. Idiot reason #2, because really 2 is enough; selling his truck to build a crappy crapper on skis. Please! How was an outhouse that looked like an outhouse going to beat The Kegger when everyone out there freezing their tushies off had a Bud in their hand?

The moral of this story? Well, that depends on which part you’re referring to; but the point I’d like to instill is don’t sell your car, truck, van, or SUV to build an outhouse. But if you too have 5 brain cells and The King rules, then throw your vehicle details into our short form and get an instant offer. We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVs and I promise you, we pay more. Don’t believe me? Check out Sell Your Car via Kelly Blue Book® KBB® – Cry Over Spilled Milk? for a little proof.
