More > “Cedar Valley Road”, with right- of-way extending from Cedar Falls north to Waverly.

The success of the operation inspired Westinghouse to create The Story of the Cedar Valley Road — and demonstrate how electric power could trump steam powered freight and passenger service.

The “People Power” Money Superbook: Book 6. Car Guide (Buy - Sell - Lease, Repo, Insurance - Parts - Repair - Safety, Car - Law - Websites - Rentals, Green Cars, Motorcycles, Rvs) By Tony Kelbrat
eBook (ePub): $4.00
Over the years, I've read at least twenty articles and books which talked about buying cars. Not one says to buy a new car. They say buy a used, late model one from a dealer that doesn't specialize... More > in that type of car because they want to get rid of it. Most new car dealers also sell slightly used cars of the same model as their new ones. You'll save thousands of dollars buying one of these rather than a new one. Car values depreciate quickly. The best deal is probably buying a two to three year-old used car with a service warranty. Do not buy a more expensive car or a bigger one than what you realistically need. Do your research in advance, pick your car in advance then go to negotiate for the best price with the car dealers. Beware that car magazines are in business to promote cars and get a lot of money for ads so don't trust their car ratings tests. Trust only objective tests like those done by Consumer Reports, Sell your extra cars. Keep your cars longer.< Less

If you walk onto a car lot, your best bet is to be friendly, bring cash and go Saturday after four o-clock in the afternoon. The more he likes you, the better the price he'll give you. On a small... More > car lot, there's one guy. On a big car lot, there might be five sales people. If the one you're with seems rude or not friendly, tell the manager that you'd like a more helpful salesman. Be straight and specific. If you got a bundle of cash, show him and tell him you got cash for the right car if the price is right. An expert sales person talks to you pretending to be friendly but he's really sizing you up for what kind of monthly payments can you afford. When he shows you a car that you like, don't show any excitement. Remain nonchalant. When he takes you into the room to talk, if he calls his magager to lower the price, that's a standard bullshit move. For them, it's not the sticker as much as monthly payments. They often screw on them by making mistakes in their favor in the math.< Less
