During what has been reported as a used car shortage in America, Kevin Powell of Kevin Powell's Foothill Ford has been traveling all over the country to find good quality pre-owned vehicles.  These hard economics has drove more and more people to choosing a used vehicle compared to a new one.  The used car market has in turn experienced a huge spike in demand.  "During the last year, new- and used-auto dealers say it has become harder, and more costly, to obtain good, low-mileage used cars, especially those valued around $10,000."  A quote from the The Business Journal, which just goes to prove that if you want good pre-owned vehicles you have to look harder.  So Kevin Powell has decided to keep his inventory fresh and competitive he would branch out and travel the country to get quality pre-owned vehicles.  "We just got some from Ohio, West Virginia, and Florida.  We have been trying to branch out and really find the diamonds in the ruff." says Robert Sutphin, Sales Manager of Kevin Powell's Foothill Ford.  "The shortage has been exacerbated because rental-car companies are holding onto vehicles longer in a tough economy, providing fewer used cars to sell." says The Business Journal.  Kevin Powell has been trying to make an honest effort to provide quality pre-owned vehicles to customers for a long time now, but until recently it has been as much of a full time job.  "I have made an effort to spend more time on the road, trying to find the right cars."  "With technology the way it is now I can do a lot of research from the dealership, but most of the time I like to see the cars before I make a purchase because quality is a big part of what we offer here at Foothill Ford.  I believe if I'm going to put my name on it, it has to be approved personally by myself." says Powell. This, some would say, is a very throw back way of doing business in a world that revolves around many transaction happening with ever seeing a person or a product, but Kevin believes its the right way to do business.
