Car Culture, Money Matters

Think SMART… Happy Earth Day.

April 22, 2010
In honor of Earth Day, I’d like to educate you — make you a little SMARTer! Recently, a customer traded their 2008 Smart Car in for a new 2010 Chevrolet Corvette. As curious as I am, I had to take that bad boy for a little test-drive. [youtube][/youtube] If you’re looking for an eco-friendly car, you gotta check this out. The Smart Car receives approximately 41 miles per gallon on the highway. If you’re looking for a fun, easy to park (anywhere), gas-saving vehicle … this may be right for you. For more information on green cars, check out one of my previous posts.

Most times, when a customer purchases a new or pre-owned vehicle from us, they’re trading in something, too.  Being an auto dealership, you’d assume that would mean vehicles, right? Not always! When I asked several of our longtime employees about the strangest trade-in offers they’ve received, I was blown away by their answers. Here are the top-10 craziest offers:
  1. A golf cart and snowmobile
  2. A 1955 Chevy Bel Air and 1957 Ford Country Sedan
  3. A boat
  4. An RV
  5. Jewelry
  6. A computer
  7. A vacuum cleaner
  8. Two Peterbilt Semis
  9. A horse and buggy
  10. Land
