Used cars for sale dot the side of the roads, especially during summer months of peak driving season. Our country continues to embrace the independent spirit on which we were founded in many ways.

One very obvious sign of it is the number of vehicles on the road. Everyone owns an auto or two and appears to be in a hurry to get somewhere. With all those cars on the road, there is constant buying and selling taking place.

Another American phenomenon is that everything is for sale. This probably stems from our capitalist system, but it can certainly be applied to automobiles. Compacts, SUVs, coupes, and sedans are being sold everywhere.

You can find them at gas stations, garages, parking lots, and empty fields. Any place that is large enough to park a couple of vehicles and close enough to the road to be seen by passersby is likely to contain them.

There are even vehicles being sold on television, especially during late-night shows. Late-night TV is full of used car advertisements. Locally owned dealerships buy up cheap airtime to promote their businesses. In some communities, these business owners have become local celebrities by screaming their tag lines at bleary-eyed viewers. The repetition promotes facial recognition and a sense of familiarity.
