Sold to the highest bidder
I just sold my crappy old Saturn for a dollar.

Frankly, I should have paid the buyer to take the damn thing.

Current Mood: chipper chipper

A WHOLE DOLLAR! YOU ARE RIPPING HIM OFF!

I know. I really felt a little shameful charging him anything. But the title transfer is easier if there's an actual sale)

Holy cow. I'm surprised you couldn't get a better trade-in than that -- or are you not replacing it right now?

I wouldn't have gotten anything for a trade-in, really. We were planning to donate it to a charity, but a friend of mine wanted it so he could try and fix it up himself so that he'd have a second car that he could use (now he bikes to work so his wife and kids can have the car, but in the winter, he'd prefer to have a car). So I sold it to him for a dollar and wished him luck getting it home.

My sister is hard on cars -- I don't quite know how, but she wears out just a little slower than I wear out shoes. Anyway, several years ago, one of her vehicles had reached the end of its lifespan. She put an ad in the paper that read something like this: "Mazda sedan, 10 years old, needs much work, doesn't run well, $500, as is." So a guy came to buy it from her, saying that the terms of his divorce decree stated that he had to buy his ex-wife a car, and it might as well be this one. At this point in the story I started snickering because, well, how evil. But no ... my sis went on to explain that the guy had called her a couple days after buying the car, saying (with no small degree of outrage), "Hey! This car you sold me doesn't work very well!" She said, "The ad said it wasn't in good shape and I told you when you were here that it needed a new engine -- no refunds." At this point I started laughing even harder because, well, the guy wasn't malicious, just dumb.

*laugh* I'll be the tables got turned on him and he got stuck with the car himself. :-)
