Quick Training Video


OK... I saw this car outside the grocery store. The paint job was SO BAD, I "had" to stop and shoot this small video and share it with you.


I want YOU to have the ability to "see" these things too! Once I train you HOW TO SEE PAINTWORK and HIDDEN BODY DAMAGE, you can't UNSEE it - your world will be different when you look at cars - heck, you will even notice these things driving down the road or at stop lights - I am not even kidding you!


The paint is DEAD LOOKING.. no shiny lustre I would expect on a truck this age. Just DULL. This makes me come in closer with a more mindful eye.


Roll the video.... I want you to look at the REFLECTIONS of the cars and ground against the metal door (not the actual door/metal so much) but the REFLECTIONS and you will see the REFLECTIONS ripple across the metal as I sway from side to side to PURPOSELY see the condition of the METAL UNDER THE PAINT!

Now... a FACTORY door will NOT ripple like this at all. On a FACTORY DOOR the reflections simply move smoothly as you go from side to side. On THIS truck... A machine has worked the metal up and down!

I will train you how to have X-ray vision like this...


ALSO.. I did NOT mention it in the video (my bad!)... look at this picture below... of the door handle area.

Notice the "orange peel" (picture the texture of the peel of an orange - see sample orange peel image too) of the paint at the area of the SILVER CAR REFLECTION.

See how "broken up" the edges of the car are??? A FACTORY door will not have that much orange peel/broken up look. And... notice how INCONSISTENT that orange peel is.... not UNIFORM at all - like a factory could be.


The "over spray" on the rubber - at the end of the video - is horrible. Now, on a FACTORY PAINT JOB, there is NO rubber when they paint so there will not be any overspray o the rubber - makes sense, right??? . The over spray is from a cheap lazy body shop who did NOT tape off the area with ANY care AT ALL. (Now, a high end shop will REMOVE the rubber before painting!)

✏️ Automotive Investment Principles

Its amazing how investing in the stock market is similar to investing in used cars. I am fascinated with Warren Buffett. I read everything I can get my hands on about him. He is the master stock market investor.

Warren's wisdom about stock investing can be directly related to trading cars for a living. Lets explore four beliefs he has about investing and how they apply to the car business.

1. Circle of Competence

Its important to know what you know and more importantly what you don't know. Invest in the things you know and ignore the rest.

I get asked, quite often, "George, what kind of cars should I buy?". My basic response for beginners is to buy what you know. If you have driven honda's your whole life, thats probably a good place to start. You know how they ride, what noises to listen for, what the common problems are, .... MUCH better than a guy who has only driven Subarus. Right?

My second suggestion is to always try to expand your circle of competence.

2. Margin of Safety

Always buy with a margin of safety. Never pay too much. Your rate of return on your investment will be determined by the price you pay. Never pay too much because there are always things you don't know about the car. SO use that margin of safety to work in your favor.

If the car is worth $5,000, don't pay $5500 just to own it. You see it is totally possible you don't know everything about the car. In fact, I bet you don't know everything about the car. There is an associated risk with buying any car or truck. There might be unknown repairs that need to be made once you get it to your mechanic. If you bought the car with a margin of safety, say $4500, you have $500 you can use for the unexpected repairs. OR, maybe, it will take longer to sell the car than you imagined and you will need that margin of safety for more advertising.

Remember: Buy with a margin of safety.

3. Mr Market

Mr Market is your paranoid schizophrenic partner in the car business (or more directly he might be your wholesaler, your local auction, or just the marketplace in general - in Warren's case, its the stock market).

Everyday Mr Market, with no thought or reason, makes available cars that can be bought at various prices. You can either take Mr Market up on his offering price for the car or you can say no & wait for a better deal.

Be mindful that you can always ignore Mr Market and wait for the next car for a better deal!

4.Resource Allocation

Your ultimate power and most critical decision is where to allocate your resources. Your main resource is your time and money. If you buy a car for too much money or one that requires too much work - it drains your resources. Be wise where you allocate your resources.

You are using some resources to buy my study course. Mainly money but also time to learn a new skill - how to buy cars for profit. Its an investment into your knowledge. Its an investment that should yield a fair return. As a side note, if you are trainable, you can learn this business!

"Howdy, my name is George Dean and I am glad to meet you.

I am passing along these strategies & techniques because I am at a stage of my life in which I want to help others be successful rather than be more successful myself. Because these principles have helped me and others so much, I want to share them with you.

Since I began helping people get into the car business the past three decades, I have received hundreds of emails and phone calls from people telling me how my training has helped them create a brand-new career, afforded them to finally invest for their retirement, saved their health (and, in some cases, literally saved their lives), kept their marriages intact (money tends to do that)... and... in various other ways... improved their lives immensely. 

So, maybe, just maybe, it will do the same for you as it has others. I am cheering for you! I want you to be a success."

To Your Success!
George Dean

“Now, I feel like I have my PhD in auto buying, thanks to George. The course itself is worth its weight in gold, but the auction experience in Dallas is unbelievable!

George is totally focused on you and won’t let you not learn how to spot all the signs of frame damage, water intrusion and re-painted cars. He’s right by your side until you get it, get it right and get it good.

I’ve paid a lot of money over the years for alleged “experts” and have been disappointed. George is the real deal.

He tells and teaches you EVERYTHING. What he knows is yours. There’s no ego that gets in the way of his mentorship. Also, the inspection video showing how to inspect a used car is worth the price of the course alone. If I didn’t learn or get anything else I would have been happy just having that videos. It will end up saving me, family and friends thousands of dollars over the years because we’ll be able to spot damage and avoid those cars.

If you’re serious about buying and selling cars there is no better teacher than George.

I bought your course way back in 2008/2009 I believe !!

It was absolutely great ? and way it was laid out I enjoyed it very much – actually gave me a good foundation to start in cars – I did some local retail too but ended up focusing on wholesale and export mostly –I made good money in cars.

It gave me the opportunity to go live overseas with my parents and family for 5 years (after 13 years) – instead of being a corporate slave in the IT industry- I was able to buy rental properties in Dubai and London with the money I made from cars thanks to you, which I still hold.

THANKS TO YOU !!! ? ? ?

I am back in the US now and I am setting up a used car dealership/ mechanic shop/collision shop under one roof.

George, I wanted to write and let you know that study course was completely worth every penny and more…much more. I must admit, I had my doubts about spending the money and time for the auction training and questioned whether it would be worth it.

Well….thank God I went through with it. The training, coaching and personal attention you provided during these 2 days has easily given me a 2 to 3 year jump on the industry learning curve. Heck, by the 2nd day of my training I honestly had enough confidence to start bidding and buying that day!

As if the auction training wasn’t enough, you pressed on to educate me regarding some of the other major points of becoming a dealer.

You’re truly something that is rarely found in any industry….an expert with the “heart of a teacher!” Priceless experience.

God Bless you brother. J.Shelton”

“Hi George, Thank you for the excellent quality information I received within your manuals. Certainly, the information shared went to the very heart of the matter in helping people get a grip on the used car business.

I studied, highlighted, outlined, and reviewed all the information you shared in order to take to heart and soul the depth of value written.

Warmest regards,

Ed Ross - FL

“Hello George…I have only had your study materials for less than 2 weeks and wanted to say “thank you!” What an eye-opener. I have been buying cars for 30 years for myself and only wish I knew about you years ago. My first purchase was a Volvo S60. Owned it for only 9 days and netted $2200.00 thanks to following your lead in how to write the ad. I made my second purchase yesterday and again using what I have learned so far from your materials, bought a really nice Jetta for $2,000- $3, 000 below wholesale. I think this one was a steal!

My long term plan is to make this a full-time career. I have been a “car guy” since before I was old enough to drive. This business is a lot of fun and of course profitable. Your guides have explained all the different facets of the business, from brokering to EBAY to wholesaling and everything in between.

Some people may think the cost of your course is expensive. What those people may be overlooking is that this is without a doubt the cheapest investment anyone could be making. I am proof as I have already at least doubled my investment in just over 1 week!!

I sincerely thank you not only for the course materials but also how you make yourself available for consultation.

Best regards,

Mark Schwartz - TN

I just want to drop you a line and let you know how beneficial your course has been. I have been attending auctions for about 8 weeks now, and the techniques on your video and subsequent trainings are 100% accurate.

I have watched other dealers and wholesalers preview cars and some of them are using the same techniques. I have gotten to know several dealers and wholesalers, and you are exactly right, these new acquaintances are very helpful in sharing their knowledge of the industry.

Some of these folks have actually given me their business card and asked me to give them a call if I had any questions or needed help with a particular issue.

Keep up the good work George!”

Rusty Smith - Dallas TX

“Hey George, I would highly recommend your training program for anyone planning to go into this business. Even if you have been in it for a while, it is well worthwhile because you will look with ‘fresh eyes’ and see some things you might have missed otherwise. He will answer all the questions that you have and will bring up things you didn’t think of.

Unless you have been buying and selling vehicles for a living and using auctions to do so.

George’s training WILL save you time and money. The cost of the training is easily recovered by the savings in two or three deals, and his organized and focused methods of appraising and evaluating vehicles are consistently revealing.

Above all, George makes it fun and fast-moving. He has not stopped enjoying it and he will get you excited about your new enterprise!

Good Luck! ”
