Used Car Database

For quite some time now I have needed and wanted to make a database listing of Used Cars by Year, Make and Model.

I finally have the used car database complete. The result is a database that should help any programmer needing the same information for their used car project.

The Used Car Database currently has over 5,200 cars listed by Year, Make and Model, from 1989-2009.

The data matches what is listed in the Kelley Blue Book which has been the nation’s number-one-selling automotive book, I did this to have a good reference point for data validity.

The file download includes 2 file formats of the database. A CSV file and a MySQL export file. Between these 2 formats, most programmers should be able to incorporate this data into a project easily.

Here is a random sampling of the data.

2002 Saturn SC2
2009 Chevrolet Colorado
1992 Mercury Sable
1994 Dodge Viper
2007 Chevrolet Equinox
1994 Suzuki Samurai
1999 Lexus LS 400
1999 Dodge Durango
2001 Ford Mustang
1992 Buick Riviera

PHP Help

Thought I would share a few of my favorite resources for PHP Help, no real secrets here, just some good links.

PHP Freaks

W3Schools PHP Tutorials


PHP Classes

The thing I liked about getting into PHP Programming was the amount of help and sample code out there is unbelievable, and if you work in WordPress you have a great place to test PHP stuff.

I would recommend setting up a dummy WordPress site, just to try things out, it is an excellent way to learn from the ground up.

If you ever need to just ask a simple question, give Twitter a try, there is always someone willing to help.
