First Car: 1977 International Scout (The Beast): This was the perfect vehicle to align with every 16-year-old boys feeling of invincibility. The Beast could go over or through just about anything! I was in the middle of proving that when I took it off of a 4-foot drop-off in the woods at 25mph and bent the frame. Fortunately, I had saved my money and promptly purchased a Datsun 240Z…turns out it was really fast.
Tips for Buying a Used Car: Be open to looking at different makes and models on our lot that your sales consultant may recommend after learning about your needs and wants. After 15 years in the car business, I have seen many customers come into the store thinking the only option for them was “Car A”; they then end up purchasing “Car B” because it suited them or their family in ways they had not thought about. Trust your consultant!
