About us

My41auto is truly a “family” operation.  Ray Knebel is the manager and lives next door to the dealership.  Ray recently retired from Lamers Bus co. where he was doing tours across the country and Canada.  Austin (Rays son) lives in Virginia and buys vehicles for the dealership at a large local auction where they have lots of new car dealers selling their trade-ins with little to no rust.  Pete (Rays brother) is retired and watches over the lot during the day.  Jordan (almost family) was Austin’s best friend in the Army and they were deployed together.  He does most of the reconditioning, but also has a salesman license.

We have none of none of the huge expenses that the average car lot has! We make our living doing other things and the overhead is lower than anyone else we have ever known in the business. The inventory is also completely owned by us so there is no bank or “floorplan” company waiting to get paid.

What this all means is that we can be very selective in buying inventory for the lot. Even though most of our inventory is in the $3,998 range (or less) they are carefully picked for the amount of life they have left in them, their condition, their relatively low miles, etc. The inventory will be a mix of southern cars from the Virginia/D.C. area, local new car trade-ins, and a few from insurance companies. We will not hesitate to tell you where we got a particular car from, what we’ve done to it, what we know about it, and we can usually provide a Carfax or Autocheck.
