Boatloads of new Inventory

We've got so many cars lately I haven't had time to update. We have Lexus IS250s, a couple of great deals on Dodge Avengers, a funny little Mazda5 that's the smallest(and most efficient) minivan I've ever seen, the seldom seen Suzuki Forenza, a 300+ horsepower Monte Carlo, a trio of PT Cruisers, a duo of Infiniti M35s, a 2009(!) Toyota Camry and much much more.

I wanted to tell you about the sweet Mazda3 we just got, but I accidentally sold it before I got the chance. There are more possibilities at Bourne's today than there has been in a long time, so give us a call, take a look at or send me a carrier pigeon if you need to know more. Oh yeah, I guess you can leave me a comment or send an email to too.

I somehow forgot to mention the 2006 Roush Mustang, but there it is.

The Autocheck Advantage

Buying a car without a vehicle history report is for chumps, plain and simple. If you've ever shopped here then you know that we're straightforward about every aspect of our business, and we've been offering vehicle history reports for longer than I've been here(just had my 3 year anniversary in September, but no cake or jewelry apparently). We like to show that our cars have clean titles, are free of frame damage, flood damage and other catastrophic issues. For the longest time we used Carfax and while they definitely have the most recognizable brand in vehicle history reports, we caught wind of an alternative.

Autocheck came to us about a year ago and showed us their reports, and after hearing them out we decided to make the switch. Autocheck reports up to twice the accidents that Carfax does, and it's not because Carfax is hiding anything, but rather because they don't draw from the auto auction records in addition to the various registries and police reports that both do. You cannot head to a used car lot anywhere in America that doesn't feature auction cars, and so knowing what the buying agents know is really only possible with Autocheck.

I found a link to a news report that supports Autocheck in a big way. Now, I don't like hidden camera shows because I think they manipulate the situation, but they have valid points about the advantages of Autocheck.

Towards the end, the gentleman who bought the red Infiniti seems dissatisfied that he sold his car at a loss, and it's never good to lose money on a vehicle, but it seems rather disingenuous that he sells the car and then calls the local news when the dealership doesn't even have a chance to do the right thing.

Occasionally we will sell a car that has a prior accident, but only if it's been fully inspected and repaired to our exacting standards. Vehicles with frame damage will never find a home on our lot.

Born to be Mild

We remarket repossessions for a couple of different local banks, and today we got a Vespa in! A Vespa! I didn't know people actually bought these, but I've got to admit it was pretty fun to drive.

Am I the worst dressed man in America or what?


I featured a sweet orange Corvette on the blog recently, and the color really struck me(and everyone else). A sports car like that absolutely must be a sharp color, because otherwise what's the point? An Audi A6, on the other hand, looks classy, crisp and clean in black, silver, blue, white, whatever color you want. When you paint it orange, it takes a nice car and elevates it into something really special.

A boatload of New Inventory

This picture would've been better, but someone parked an old Mercedes in front of the line)
We just got TWENTY(20) new cars in one day. I've been running around like a maniac trying to make sure all the keys are properly labeled and that the cars are in good enough condition for the lot. All in all, it's an immaculate lot with half a dozen Murano SL crossovers equipped with leather and a roof, and a couple more basic AWD models. One car that really stuck out for me was this Nissan Altima, a really clean, sharp-looking car with virtually no flaws(I'm sure if you look hard enough you'll find one, you nit-picker)

There are also a couple of Volvo S80s, some Saab 9-3 Convertibles, and a silver Infiniti FX35, which is probably my favorite luxury crossover to cruise around Easton.

Busy day today! Come down Saturday and see the new inventory!

Upgraded stereo

I know I just kind of throw links up to, but it's pretty much the best site for hilarious car pictures.

Change to the front page, now with credit app!

OK it's not some Earth-shattering update, but since I only recently learned how to make any changes at all, I'm pretty excited that I was able to improve In the top line of links, we had "DIRECTIONS" before, but we already have a map on the right, so why do we need it twice? I left a link in to our old written directions in case the unthinkable happens and Google goes down, or if you just like paragraph directions instead.

Check out my MSPaint skills with the awesome yellow arrows pointing at the new link.

Before I did this, I would have to direct customers to find a car, open the detail page, and then locate the apply for credit button. This way it will be a whole lot easier for us to get you approved, and into the car you want.

(Yeah, Gerard had the idea to make the change AND the idea to blog about it. He's definitely an idea man, but I'm all action)
