Ford the Historic Icon – Don’t Sell Your Car If…

Joseph Coupal - Friday, July 28, 2017

If you’re lucky enough to own one of these cars, Car Buyer USA is pretty sure you’ve been told countless times, “Don’t sell your car if it’s one of these.” Many times. “Here is the first and only chance ever offered to secure a touring car at a reasonable price any man can afford to pay. It is a roomy, powerful car of handsome appearance and finish at a price lower than you are asked to pay for any 4-cylinder runabout excepting the “FAMOUS FORD.” This car sounds the death knell of high prices and big profits.”

Ford Ad

The first thing that bothered this writer, is …”FAMOUS FORD.” Totally should have been “FAMOUS FORD”. The second thing, what the heck does “death knell” mean? Imagine my surprise at how wrong this was… until of course I read further and realized this is an old 1908, Ford advertisement and they were using what we would call click bait so-to-speak on the Internet. The third thing? Eight. Hundred. Fifty. Dollars. Doesn’t even seem possible.

We all know Ford is the powerhouse when it comes to shiny new cars, old classics and muscle, but do you know Henry Ford’s first “ride” was a 1986 Quadricycle?

Ford Quadricycle

During Henry Ford’s employment as Chief Engineer at the Edison Illuminating Company in Detroit, he built his first gas-powered vehicle called the Quadricycle. I’m pretty sure when Henry envisioned his idea he had no idea what he was really doing for, or to, the world and just how far his iconic dream would go. Can you imagine driving that thing? I’d love to sit in that seat! Fun!

The Model-T, probably the most renowned car in Ford history, and any automobile history, everyone knows about. But another little tidbit of information little tidbit of information you may not know, is this car hit the public market on October 1, 1908 just 13 days before the Cubs won their last World Series Championship, until 2016 that is. Yep, took 109-years but they did it!

Thirsty for some more Ford history? We’ve got it for you!

Ford Interesting Figures

Tons of car enthusiasts not only love their cars, but cars in general. When it comes to cars of Ford history, however, there’s so much more to love. He gave Americans their first ride; he gave us freedom; he gave us comfort (LOL, eventually! You know it was rough riding there for a while!) He gave us economical vehicles; he gave us luxury; but best of all he gave us muscle. Ford is still one of the strongest and rivals the best of the best, as the one who started “the best”. That makes Ford the true best. Got a Ford? Looking to sell your car, truck, van, or SUV? Good! Call us; we buy cars anywhere in the U.S.A. 2004 and up. Just like Ford history shows us this iconic Brand is the best, so are we at buying cars the Fast, Safe, and Easy way with mega convenience for you to boot! Sell your car to us and it’ll be history! But of course, don’t sell your car if it’s a Quadricycle. It’d be a shame to let that one go.

Show Your Kid You Appreciate His College Grades – Sell Your Car

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, July 13, 2017

This? This is a story I was reminded of when writing the last post. It’s about a single mom who had BIG dreams for her two kids. Do well in high school; go to college and work hard enough to get on the College President’s List, like she did in her 30s. You know the list you only get on when your grades are immaculate; the list that shows you off to your mom. That her dreams are coming true. Not the dorm monitors write-up list. But first, I’d like to take this moment for an important announcement; a couple of shameless plugs for the cause if you will. Sell your car to us, you know; the one you bought him to drive home from college. We buy cars so if you need to teach your kid a lesson… just sayin’.

Picture this. Mom stays on kids to do their homework. Mom helps kids’ with their homework. Mom stays so involved in their lives, molding them, teaching them, loving them, and yep, even laying down the mom law from time to time. She pushes them hard so they excel in life. Do better in life than she has done. College. It’s a must.

Car Buyer USA


“Ok! I know what college and what I want a degree in! SUNY Delhi where Alicia will go! (the girlfriend)


“That’s great Josh! I’m sooo proud of you!”

Fast forward to the end of semester one.


“Ugh Josh. What’s going on with your grades? You’re failing.”


“I know mom, I’m sorry. I have a plan and I’ve gotten extra help from the lab and some tutors.”


“Excellent son, I’m so proud of you! You obviously get your determination from me!”


“Josh? What are you doing up there? I thought you were taking advantage of the resources they have for you! Like last semester!”


“I’m sorry mom, I’m struggling. It’s just so hard.”


“Aww, I’m sorry Josh. What can I do to help?”


“Well, I have been hungry a lot lately. I’m running out of money so I’m only eating once a day.”


“Oh no! No way! Why didn’t you tell me?? I’m adding money to your account right now!”

How did I fall for that?

Boy did he teach me an expensive lesson! So what was a mom to do? Get even.


“Sell my car!”

Yep. I made him sell it to pay me back! That sweet 2001 Honda SI he was sporting around in… money in the bank.

Sell your 2001 Honda SI  to Car Buyer USA

So what I thought was my proudest Josh moment turned into one of my most gratifying moments. LOL, no way was I letting him teach me another moment I couldn’t get even for; but that’s an entirely different Toyota rust bucket story for a future story time.

Suffice to say, if you are a parent who has a kid that just did follow through on his end of the bargain. You pay and he does NOT play. Then take a lesson from me; sell your car. It’s a tough lesson for the kid, but life is tough and when it gets rough out there for him, you want him to suck it up and do what needs to be done. Fun comes later, right? So if you find yourself feeling you have fallen into that parent’s “cloud 9” trap, we buy cars and we’ll be happy to put cash for that sweet ride back in your bank. It is the best feeling. Trust me.

Li Jie Sells His 2004 Chevrolet Colorado

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Lie Jie came to the United States as an exchange student at SUNY Delhi, in a small college town; he didn’t know it was known for its party school reputation. However, he quickly learned if he wanted to get around without walking in the cruel frigid weather the Catskill Mountains throw at you, he needed a car. Well, in his case a truck. Now that he was about to graduate and go back home to Yangzhou, China, he decided he wanted one last hoorah with his friends and decided selling his 2004 Chevrolet Colorado would do it! No worries LJ! We buy cars and we do it fast!

How did Li Jie find Car Buyer USA? Easy, he Googled “companies that buy cars fast”. He thought it was going to be a complicated hassle, but soon found himself saying “No way. It can’t be that easy!” But it was. All he had to do to get cash in his hands was answer a few questions to get the ball rolling. And guess what? We went to him to pick up his truck! How convenient was that for this college kid!

Here’s how Li Jie got his INSTANT OFFER.

  • He filled out our short form and in seconds had his offer.
  • Accepted his offer.
  • He talked to one of our very friendly and helpful agents.
  • He made an appointment with us to come to him to pick up his truck, put cash in his hands, and take his truck away.

That’s it! Easy peasy, safe as sitting in your dorm planning a last hoorah with your friends, and fast like lightning! Ok, that last hoorah thing… that takes serious planning to stay safe and you absolutely need to plan for safety. So do NOT forget it! And while I’m at it, CBU doesn’t support celebrating outside of what’s safe and legal. Don’t forget that either. 

Now that Lie Jie has sold his truck for quick cash and a well-deserved celebration, no doubt he’s likely back home in Yangzhou putting his Nursing - AAS/BSN to good use. We’re extremely proud to live in a country where students from foreign places can live and learn from the best the U.S. education system has to offer. On the flipside of that, we’re happy LJ had the brilliant idea, “SELL MY CAR!” and buy some chips and soda (Ugh… chips and soda?) Straight from LJ’s lips! Our agent’s reply? “That’s a lot of chips and soda Li Jie.”

Remember this; when you want to sell your car and you want to do it the easiest way possible, call us. We are one of those companies that buy cars so easy, so safe, and so fast it’ll make your head spin. We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVs, anytime, anywhere AND we come to you to do it.

Part 2: This Left Lane Hog Was Breaking the Law

Joseph Coupal - Friday, July 07, 2017

First I need to say, if this had happened in 2017 instead of the mid 90s I’d have been breaking the law. Fortunately for me, traffic was sparse so my lack of road curtesy didn’t cause an immediate danger. The second thing I need to say is I miss my Laser. Third, if you want to sell your car, truck, van, or SUV, we’ll give you cash and take it off your hands. See what I just did there?

Like I said, I’d just left having lunch with my ex-husband (again, totally his fault) and was driving up the Northway in upstate NY, cruising along minding my own business on a 4 LANE HIGHWAY – yep the left lane – doing the speed limit. Yeah, no. That’s not true. I was in my Laser and thought I was somethin’! When this car came up on my tail fast and instantly I had an attitude. No way was I moving over! There were NO other cars, none! The guy kept riding up on my rear, flashing his lights, and honking his horn. All it took was about 15 seconds of this “rude behavior from some jerk” and I was giving him the “I don’t like you so much friendly salute.” (In my defense I was in my 20s.)

Next? Well, then I looked to the right to see that “road hog jerk” flashing a badge angrily motioning for me to pull over. LOL, couldn’t have happened to a better dummy. In retrospect, I never should have pulled over. I should have driven to the nearest police station. That could’ve been a fake badge he was shaking at me in that unmarked car!

When he made his way to my window the first thing he said, “You know, you’re not supposed to be driving in the fast lane.” I bet you thought he would have scolded me for my “polite and sweet” hand gesture. Nope, that was the last thing he said before he let me off with a warning. (Yep, I used to be cute.) “And you know! You shouldn’t be giving me the bird!” How did I reply? The only way I could of course. “Well, if I’d known you were a cop I wouldn’t have, now would I’ve?” All he could do was laugh as he walked off. I was such a smacky mouth back then. Stick around. Become a fan. You’ll find out I still am.

The moral of the story goes back to part one. Don’t be a left lane slow poke hog like I was. If you do then you’re breaking the law. And I can’t stress this strong enough; drive smart, be safe and get where you’re going so everyone else does too. And while you’re at it remember this. If you want to sell your car let us know. We’ll buy it and put hard cold cash in your hands faster than a speeding bullet. Ok, that’s an exaggeration; but we buy cars fast, easy and the safe way. So get on it.

Part One: Left Lane Slow Poke Hogs Are Breaking the Law

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, July 06, 2017

Do you know all U.S. states have a law restricting left lane slow poke hogs from hogging the road? Well they do. Drivers in every state cruising along in the left fast/passing lane are breaking the law if they’re taking their sweet time. There are statistics that show slower drivers who stay in the right lane on interstates allowing those driving faster to keep on truckin’ along, keep the accident rate down and the roads safer. For those of you who feel like you own that left lane because, after all, you’re doing the speed limit, think again. You’re causing a problem and could be heading toward a future crash. While Car Buyer USA definitely wants you to stay safe on the open road, we want you to know if you have a mishap or an accident more serious than a fender bender, you can still sell your car to us. We buy cars in any condition including the not so perfect ones.

Car Buyer USA - Left Lane States Map

Yes, we know how bad it sounds to say, “Don’t worry if you wreck your car; we’ll buy it anyway, so no worries. You can sell your car.” But what’s worse, is the six o’clock news of someone driving irresponsibly putting themselves and others at risk. Let’s face it, that’s just dumb. So drop the “whatcha you gonna do about it” attitude and move over!

Here’s a video of why you shouldn’t be a left lane slow poke hog.

Funny Story

I’d just left having with my ex-husband (totally his fault) and was driving up the Northway in upstate NY; minding my own business on the 4 LANE Northway. Yep, I was in the left lane doing the speed limit. (To read the rest of my dumb blonde moment, click on the link below.)

The moral of the story, is don’t be one of those left lane slow poke hogs like I was back in the 90s… ok, still am but that was as of today. If you do then you’re breaking the law. And drive smart, be safe and get where you’re going so everyone else does too. And while you’re at it; if you want to sell your car let us know. We’ll buy it and save you from your left lane hog self! Oh, and put cash in your hands before you know it!

There’s Car Sickness and Then There’s Car Sickness

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, July 05, 2017
Boy in the car

There’s car sickness then there’s car sickness. No matter if someone has gotten sick in your car, or your car is not feeling so well or even has a full blown flu it doesn’t matter. Either way, you can sell your car to us because We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVs whether your car has seen better days or not. In the meantime though, let’s talk about the dreaded “Little Susie got sick in my car!” thing.

What is car sickness? Really it’s just a more graphic or dramatic way of saying motion sickness. Many people suffer from it so it’s not hitting the networks as “This Just In!” But even so, when you or one of your passengers get car sick, it can feel like that breaking news moment and completely derail the perfect road trip.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

What’s the best way to fight off this painful for anyone in the car for this excruciating experience? Prevention! Prevention! Prevention! With a side of be prepared!

Prevention Because I’m Smarter than My Neighbor Kit
Note: This is for the non- procrastinator, proactive, smart driver. A.K.A. you’re no dummy.

    Child and Adult

  1. Sized sea bands.
  2. Dramamine

    Belly Soothing

  3. Mentos
  4. Peppermint or ginger candies
  5. Essential Oils – peppermint and lavender are great – either drops placed on the sea bands or diluted in a rollerball (costs under $7 on Amazon!)

And for those procrastinating “I didn’t plan ahead so good people”, here’s the must haves for you.

Uh Oh Emergency Car Sick Kit
Note: We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVs, even if you have to use the “I don’t prepare, but I’m ready for it!” knuckle head (like me!) method. It’s not optimum, but you’ll be really, really happy you hit the road prepared to react. Really.

  1. Cleaning supplies – paper towels, cleaning spray and/or disinfectant wipes, and Lysol or Febreze!!
  2. Personal cleaning wipes – someone is going to need some cleanup!
  3. Plastic bags – zip up to seal or I recommend double bagged recyclable shopping bags, both for obvious reasons. And, don’t even think of recycling at your local grocer. They will NOT like you for it.
  4. Change of clothes – make sure they’re easily accessible.
  5. A very calm mood – doesn’t matter who it is or how old they are, don’t blow a gasket.

Now that we’ve done our due diligence and made it easy peasy for you – meaning you really have no excuses not to be ready for a sickless trip – it’s time to let you know. Yes, we buy cars even after it’s been through the wrath of car sickness; and, we still make it easy, safe, and fast for you. How easy? We’ll come to you. How safe? You pick the environment, like your home or work place for example. How fast? Well that depends on you? How fast can you call us for your instant offer? How fast can you say buy my car?
