Providing Good People with Bad Credit Great Cars … for over 30 years!

In 1990, while working at a Cleveland Ohio new car dealership, Akron native Sam Snellenberger Sr. had had enough of car dealers turning away people solely due to weak credit.

Sick of seeing good people with bad credit turned down repeatedly at the chance to buy a car, Sam decided then and there that bad credit should not be a life sentence, but instead a catalyst for life change and he set out to do something about it.

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Chinese Proverb

Given a chance, Sam believed the fine folks in Ohio would make the car payments necessary, if a car dealership would only provide reliable used cars buyers needed to get where they wanted to be.

He felt that absolutely everybody deserves the opportunity to make amends for bad decisions, to fix what's broken, and to live a good life. That means the opportunity to own a car they can afford to drive to get where they need to be.

ABC MotorCredit was founded in nearby Akron Ohio as a buy here pay here car dealership with this specific mission in mind.

“I knew there were many local people – folks in Cleveland, in Akron, in Canton – in all of Ohio – in desperate need of reliable used cars, willing to do whatever was necessary to get into a good used car and drive it off the lot that same day,” said Sam Snellenberger Sr., founder of ABC MotorCredit. “I began the buy here pay here dealership ABC MotorCredit to help these people get back on their feet.”
