I am sometimes asked non-legal questions like, “What various considerations should I be cognizant of when deciding whether to buy a car new or used?” When that happens, I respond by making a podcast which, these days, also includes a video component for those who like to watch.


I also have a new book I just finished writing. Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird: Design, Development, Production and Competition will be published early next year. Until then, we are cutting down trees, making paper, mixing ink and so on. These books are complicated!

This also partially explains why I was interviewing Richard Petty a few weeks ago, and why I took it so personally when that guy made the silly comments about the winged cars.

I mean, it’s one thing to be wrong. But to be wrong on one of the things I’ve been working on for the last few years?


So, to bide your time until the book comes out, you can listen to, or watch, episode #37 of Lehto’s Law. Wherein I discuss the pros and cons of buying new versus buying used.

The old fashioned audio podcast:


And the newfangled video podcast:

Stay tuned. I will post updates on the progress of Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird (and other books). And, as always, I will listen for questions which need to be answered.

This website may supply general information about the law but it is for informational purposes only. This does not create an attorney-client relationship and is not meant to constitute legal advice, so the good news is we’re not billing you by the hour for reading this. The bad news is that you shouldn’t act upon any of the information without consulting a qualified professional attorney who will, probably, bill you by the hour.
