    Hi, my name is Scott. I'm in the research phase of beginning a small, internet-based, used vehicle dealership. I've bought/sold/traded close to 50 vehicles in the last 20 years and have had the idea of my own dealership to make my car addiction profitable. I work full-time in the public safety field and I'd love to eventually retire and do this full-time. I'm here to look at what others have already done and see what works and what doesn't.

    IMO, 2 FBSO sales a year gives you a taste of the sale, but you dont know the pain thats waiting for you. Find the most successful independent used car seller and go work there for a year. Do any job they have. Turn over every stone, take lots and lots of notes. Leave nothing to chance.
