A Brief History of Texas Cars Direct

Last updated 4 years ago

For over 30 years, Dallas-area drivers looking to buy luxury vehicles at a great value have turned to Texas Cars Direct. We have established a solid reputation in our community and around the country by providing excellent service and selling only the best luxury performance vehicles with clean titles and certified vehicle history reports. For a quick look at the history that makes Texas Cars Direct who we are, read on.

Pete Bulban, the founder of Texas Cars Direct, has been in the business of buying and selling cars since he was only a teenager. After buying a Mustang in 1977 with money borrowed from his parents and selling it for nearly twice as much, he realized he was onto something.

In a few short years, Bulban had made a business of the process, hunting down underpriced cars, paying cash for them, and selling them for a profit. One big break came when Bulban became the top resource for a local dealership looking to offload Saabs. He would buy them for about $5,000, drive them up to Maine or Massachusetts, sell them for a $2,000 profit, and fly home. This deal was bringing in as much as $10,000 a month.

Next, Bulban made a connection at an auction in St. Louis. A representative from Jaguar Credit offered $1,000 to cover expenses if Bulban bought 11 or more Jags. To Bulban’s surprise, the representative meant $1,000 per vehicle. To make things even better, he sold his first 11 Jaguars in three days and found similar success with hundreds more Jaguars in the following four months.

In 2001, Bulban changed the name of his company from Texas Mustang Sales to, keeping pace with an increasingly web-based economy. An acute awareness of the economy helped Texas Cars Direct thrive in the recent recession. In 2008 and 2009, the company made nearly $85 million selling pre-owned luxury vehicles that often came from leases that ended or were cancelled during those lean economic years.

Teas Cars Direct has continued to prosper thanks to sound business principles and a dedication to providing customers with a great value. If you are interested in buying a pre-owned luxury vehicle at a surprisingly affordable price, call us at (214) 736-8557.
