Car Buying 101

My Dad is what I would consider a “car guy”.  He literally knows just about everything there is to know about cars. Have you seen Forest Gump?  Do you know the part where he says “I know everything there is to know about shrimp.”  well…  this is my Dad… “I know everything there is to know about cars.”

If you want to know what to know before buying a car, this is the book for you!



From the time that I was 16, he has been with me for every car purchase (even now that I am married with four kids, he still helps).  He knows just what to research, what to do, what to say, what to ask for, etc…  He has an MBA in Business and has worked in a car dealership (after he retired from his full time job).  He has rebuilt MANY cars (several corvettes, mustangs, chevelleSS,  Camaros, el-caminos and even jet-skis.)   He rebuilds cars for fun.  It is his hobby and because of this, he is very knowledgeable about all things related to cars.  (Lucky for me because I don’t ever have to take my car into the dealership and it is always well taken care of!  I would trust him and his advice over anyone else’s advice!)

I asked him to write an ebook about how to buy a car, for my readers.  He has given such great advice in this book.  


So often, my friends are the ones looking for the cars.  Their husbands will go, but more often than not, it is the “mom” doing the shopping (with their kids underfoot).  I wanted this book to tell you exactly what to do.

He gives you advice on:

  • HOW to research what you want
  • Which car to buy
  • Safety in a car
  • Standard vs. Manual
  • Which options to get & which to pass on
  • Where (online) to compare prices
  • What to say when you are at the dealership…
  • SO MUCH MORE!  This is a quick read- right to the point and very informative. 

He really shares so much information!  If you know someone buying a car, this is a MUST-READ!  I am not just saying that because he is my dad and I would trust my car-buying to him without even looking at the car myself, but he is very knowledgeable.

I will give you a sneak peek at the INTRO of this book (taken from experience & research)…

“Today, experts tell us that 50% or more of car purchases are made by women in all walks of life. Some car sales persons comment that women- especially moms- are “easier to sell” then men.  Why do they say this?  They conclude that moms are busy with a host of varied activities and are usually the ones overseeing the kids (in fact many times they have the kids with them at the dealership).  So, if they are car shopping, they need a vehicle- they’re not just window shopping.

Most sales people correctly assume that if you don’t buy today, you will likely not be back.  This is one reason that they may tell you that the price is good for today only and will try to entice you into a quick decision.  Keep in mind that they sell cars all day every day and are well versed in how to convince that you need to buy now.


He writes in the book “An educated consumer is often the car sales person’s biggest challenge. It is much harder for a sales person to convince a customer of something if their customer has done their homework and if armed with the necessary information.   The internet provides many sources for gathering the necessary information. We will discuss several of these. ”   I don’t want to share too much, but this is just the intro.  He gives you every detail that you need in making a sound decision for your car purchase.  You will walk away armed with the tools to buy your next car. 

If you want to buy this e-book for you or for a gift for someone else, you can buy it here (through Paypal or any major credit card).

If you need to purchase it with a check, please just email me at and I would love to help you.

This book is $2.95 and it is worth so much more.  If I could title it anything, I would call it “How to buy the best car at the best price–get the facts today.”

If you have a car purchase in your future, get this book or give it as a gift to someone buying a car.  For under $3.00, you can’t afford not to (since you will literally save yourself a LOT of money, aggravation & time) 

OK- I am so excited for you to get this car. You will get more out of this than any other car book, I am certain.  If you want more information, you can email me at
