Originally called Texas Technological College, Texas Tech University’s beginnings can be traced back to 1923, when the Texas State Legislature voted to create the college. Just two years after that, the college opened with six buildings and an enrollment of 914 students. Legislative action changed the name formally to Texas Tech University in 1969. Its colleges at the time were Agricultural Sciences, Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Education, Engineering, and Home Economics. Today, it is the largest comprehensive institution of higher education in the western two-thirds of the state of Texas, and is the only university in Texas that houses a major university, medical school, and law school on the same campus.

The exterior of your car is the first thing people see when you drive up, and the last thing they see as you drive away. If you want to make a good impression and keep the resale value of your car strong, it’s important to keep the exterior of your car looking nice. At Truck Town Used Car Superstore, the preferred pre-owned car dealer in Lubbock, we have the following advice to offer you so your used car always looks new.
Clean the exterior of your car at least once a week. It’s best to have your car cleaned professionally or to take it to a car wash. Washing your car at home takes significantly more time, uses lots of water, and doesn’t get the vehicle as clean as professional equipment and products can.
Each type of paint reacts differently to wax and polish, so only buy a product that’s designed for your vehicle’s paint. If you buy the wrong type of wax, it could work as an abrasive agent that strips the vehicle of its shine. Car dealerships and professional car detailers know what types of waxing products work best for your car.
Detailing clay gives your car a deeper clean than what is possible with washing. Made from natural or synthetic ingredients, detailing clay removes overspray, metal particles, and remnants of industrial pollution. It is gentle enough to apply monthly or to use as a spot-cleaning agent.
Fix small scratches right away. Slight scratches can usually be corrected using touch-up paint and a rubbing compound. If the scratch is so deep that you see metal, you will need to sand off the area and apply primer before re-painting the area.

Are you shopping for used cars in Lubbock? AtTruck Town Used Car Superstore, we will gladly evaluate your current vehicle’s trade-in value. Here are some tips you can follow to strengthen your car’s trade-in value.
Keep it Maintained
This is the long-term approach you should take to get the best trade-in value for your car. As soon as you have possession of the car, be sure it receives an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles if it has conventional motor oil, or every 7,500 to 10,000 miles it if has synthetic oil. Every time you go in for an oil change, ask the technician to perform a basic inspection, which will include the battery, fluids, brakes, and tires. When one day you are ready to trade in your car for a newer one, your car’s vehicle history report will show that it has been well maintained, and this will bolster its resale value.
Research Your Car’s Value
It always helps to do your homework before visiting your local used car dealership. You can visit Black Book’s, Manheim’s, or Kelley Blue Book’s website to determine your vehicle’s trade-in value based on its condition, mileage, history, features, and other factors. Coming to the dealership with your car’s trade-in value report printed out is one of the most important things you can do to get the best trade-in value for your car.
Separate the Purchase from Your Car’s Value
It’s better to separate the trade-in value of your vehicle from the value of the vehicle you’re buying at the dealership when discussing the transaction. This way, you know that the value the dealership is offering you matches up with the value you expect to get for your trade-in.

In Texas, drivers are required to pay for accidents if they are determined to be at fault. Most drivers do this by purchasing auto liability insurance, which pays to replace or repair the other driver’s car as well as their medical expenses if you are at fault in a car accident. The minimum auto liability insurance that meets Texas state requirements is called 30/60/25 coverage, which covers $30,000 for each injured person up to a total of $60,000 per accident, and $25,000 for damaged property per accident. Because medical expenses and modern car repair expenses can exceed those figures quite easily, it is often recommended to buy more than the basic level of coverage. Learn more about Texas car insurance requirements at Texas.gov.
