You can have an adventure  car.  It'll be good too.

Does your next adventure include a mountain, the ocean, or even just urban exploration? Take one of our cars with you!

We have used our skills to prepare these cars for you! These cars have been tested for many miles, and we have gone lots deeper than the shiny polish or clean interiors.

We are a family owned company that is very picky about our vehicles. Our cars are nice, they are thoroughly clean, they are solid mechanically, and you can trust us when we say it's a good car. You can take pride in owning one of our cars!

How we select the car:

Updates to ALL our  cars:

5 Star Criteria:

​First, ownership.  It is of supreme importance to know this is a clean and cared for car that has lots of adventuring left.​

Second, only clean titles.  We know from experience that it isn't worth it to get into a salvage vehicle.  Period.

Third, a pre-buy inspection of the car with a very detailed checklist.  And then we update the maintenance before we consider it ready for the trail.  
​​No questions, no hesitation, these are done automatically!

  • Every car gets updated to the most stringent factory fluid change or flush schedule.
  • Every car gets a new timing belt.
  • Every car gets a new oil filter and air filter.​​
  • Then it's fixed to meet our criteria.

Before selling, all of our cars must pass these basic tests:

  1. No leaks in the engine compartment.
  2. Everything working.
  3. All brakes in excellent condition.
  4. All tires in excellent condition.
  5. No known safety issues.

Note: anyone can follow our formula above to ensure they get an excellent adventure car.
