Tag Archives: used cars previously enjoyed cars

In the Beginning…

…cars that were not new and were for sale were referred to as “used cars.”

And then somewhere along the line someone didn’t like the sound of that, thought it made such goods seem…unseemly, and decided to call them “previously owned cars.”

Maybe “extensively enjoyed for a prolonged period of time”?

Recently, though, The Curmudgeon heard a new one – or at least new to him:  a radio ad referred to such vehicles as “previously enjoyed cars.”

The Curmudgeon nearly drove his own car, three years old, purchased new and now used, and enjoyed, off the road.
