Less Than 24 hours!

February 27th, 2009 at 10:11 am

The car is sold! Craig's list is amazing.

My 2001 Toyota Camry; 135,000+ miles, needs frequent oil and engine noises (disclosed), clean and good mileage though; gone to a guy who was completely comfortable with the engine noise.

We sold it for $500 under blue book. Would not have increased the price because of the known faults.

But that didn't stop 6 people contacting us the first day, and something like a call an hour today.

The guy paid cash. Green cash. (kinda scary actually)

Soooooooo....DH using the pick up truck as 2nd car (gas guzzler) for a short while and I get the Corrolla.

He is very keen on a hybrid, wish there were hydrogen cars ready!! The cash is going straight toward the down payment for a new one. We're not strapped, it means tho less going to saving until Sept when the last vehicle payment is made on our tractor.

And my spouse is completely thrilled with the hunt.

He's an expert, ask me how he got the last one (it has manual windows and un-power locks!!)

    Congrats on a cash sale! When we sold FrugalSon's subaru wagon we could have sold 30 of them!

    Okay, I'll bite - How did he get the last one??
