Why We Do What We Do


​We work  near the incredibly beautiful Cape Horn Trailhead.  From this rural location we frequently launch out on our own adventures to Mt. Hood, the Columbia Gorge, or the Pacific Ocean.  So we definitely understand the necessity of a reliable vehicle!

We have all experienced the medium mileage used car that seemed great for about a week or two and then suddenly needed thousands of dollars of repairs!  
Based on our own  experience  we pre-drive your next used car for many miles while working out the critical kinks and making sure it's in good shape for your adventures.

Our basic formula has proven itself many times over!  We have many happy owners who have put thousands of miles on our medium mileage used cars and who come back to us when they are ready to buy again!  

(Besides, we personally drive cars prepared in the exactly the same way as the ones you purchase from us.)

Try one of our cars today.   Come, buy, and go wherever you want, because it has been intelligently prepared for your next adventure!

Note: we have discovered that not all cars can be made to be reliable   and have proven themselves to be worthless adventure cars.  We don't sell those models anymore.  That's why you'll see only certain makes, models, and year ranges for sale on this website.
