Joe Smow is a term used to describe someone you don't know, doubt there is actually someone with that name.

From the old days the used car dealers that came into the restaurant would go buy car at the auction wash them and put them on the lot, the new car dealers that got them in on trade would check them out and the bad ones went to auction.. Buying from a person you have to look close at the car and the people selling......Hard to tell which is better...

I don't buy a car from a stranger. I go to my garage than I know what I am buying.
And I get good guarantee.

I've only bought one used car, my 04 SSR truck, it only had 30k miles on it and I'm the third owner.. The truck was 14 years old and each of the 2 owners only put 15k miles on it in the 7 years they each owned it.. I did my research and found it in the bay area.. A lady drove it most of the time and her husband bought her a new Cad SUV to replace it for more room.. She was crying when I drove it off.. What are you going to do when you want a convertible pickup and they don't make them any more............

Truthfully....right now I don't want to buy anything. Mom wants to do a mini remodel on the kitchen, mostly new floor and paint cabinets and some other things that are going into the thousands. So It's going to have to be the deal of the century for me to buy one, but it don't hurt to look...right?

Our living room carpet is 25 years old and looks as good as the day it was installed, I wonder if today's carpet will last as long?

If you walk into either one of my son's house you will take your shoes off. Wife keeps a pair of slippers there to walk in. Guess we trained them good eh?
