1961 Jaguar Mark IX Donated to American Cancer Society

Just recently we had a beautiful 1961 Jaguar Mark IX donate to American Cancer Society.  This classic Jaguar came to us from a generous donor in Laguna Beach, California.  You can see from the picture that this car lived a privileged life in sunny southern California.  With just over 27,000 miles, this car was kept in great running shape and was even treated to a new engine back in the early 1990’s.  Due to the donor taking great care of this car it has held its value over the last 56 years.  We expect it to earn quite a nice car donation for the American Cancer Society.

Used Car Market Prices Soften

The first quarter of 2017 has seen average used car market prices soften and continue to drop both month to month as well as year over year.  In fact “Auto Remarketing Magazine” stated in their April 1st Issue that it was just the 2nd time in the last 20 years that used car prices declined in the month of February.

The decline was counter to the 1-percent increase expected for the month and marked just the second time in the past 20 years prices fell in February. -Auto Remarketing Magazine

Recycling the “New” Car Industry

Recycling in 2017 and the future will continue to be a highly debated subject around the world as we continue to grow and develop this high speed blue planet we all call home.  You may know some facts about the automotive recycling industry (you can learn a few here). But it may surprise most of you that cars are the most recycled consumer product in the world.¹  Also, car recycling is one of the top industries in the United States.  It is estimated that 85-90% of that car you drive in can be pulled apart and recycled when it reaches the end of its glorious life.²  However, if you are keeping up with the auto industry you know that automakers are responding as fast as they can to keep up with the consumer’s never ending appetite for technology in every area of their life.

Just take a look at some of the technologies to watch for based on research by Forbes contributor Karl Brauer after attending CES and Detroit auto shows:

  • autonomous vehicles
  • driver override systems
  • biometric vehicle access
  • active window displays
  • remote vehicle shutdown
  • active health monitoring
  • four-cylinder supercars
  • personalized in-car marketing

National Human Trafficking Awareness Day

Today awareness is being raised around social media and news sites about the prevalence that human trafficking has around the world.  January was proclaimed National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month by President Barack Obama in 2014.  According to UNICEF USA an estimated 21 million people are victim to human trafficking and forced labor.  This includes about 5.5 million children.

As a partner of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF we want to share their cause and the ways that you can help take action.  Follow this link to the UNICEF website for more information.

One way that you can help is by choosing to donate a car or cars for charity.  Believe it or not your old vehicle that’s sitting in the driveway taking up space is not completely worthless.  The impact of your car donations to UNICEF may be much more than you realize.  The average amount raised by a vehicle donation through Car Donation Wizard is $542. If you are wondering how to donate a car click here to learn more and start the easy donate your car process.

In 2016 hundreds of people decided to donate a car to charity and picked UNICEF as the charity they wanted to support.  One of the top car donations in the year came out of Colorado.  A 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee with over 125,000 hard earned miles was donated and raised a lot of money for the charity.

The brand Jeep, originally produced for the military in 1941, when they decided they needed a new lightweight, cross-country reconnaissance vehicle.  By the end of the second World War over 600,000 Jeeps were ordered for use.  Flash forward to 1974 and Jeep Motors debuted what would become the most popular model in history, the Cherokee.  In 1992, Jeep presented a brand new model, the Grand Cherokee.  This model quickly gained popularity among car enthusiasts.¹
