Cheap Car HuntingOctober 8, 2012 - Author: newscoma - Comments are closed
So blogging community, I’m coming to you for advice. I’ve finally got the money to buy a new car to replace Steve Austin. As a freelancer, I want to buy something VERY cheap, dependable and I don’t want to finance.
I know that I’m going to have to be clever and open-minded. There is no new car in my future, I get that and there also is no Volvo, Lexus or Cadillac out there with my name on it. I’m a realist.
I talked to my dad because that’s what you do in dilemmas such as mine and he gave me some sound advice as dads do. Look in the paper (which I did) for one owner deals and, if you can, avoid car lots unless there is
good buzz around them from friends. And that Carfax is imperative although I could end up paying hundreds of dollars for each vehicle I look at but I do believe that is necessary. I think my father is right.
My worries are mainly, and I mean no disrespect in what I’m about to say, are of flood vehicles in Nashville so I’m looking in Hoots, Jackson and my buddy Vibinc has his eyes open in Memphis. Nashville cars will definitely get the Carfax treatment.
Beggars, of course, can’t be choosy so I realize that I may be driving a bright purple Impala but if it runs, which Steve Austin didn’t, then I’m in.
So keep your ear to the ground and I’m always willing to take good advice because that’s the only way a person learns anything.
Did I mention VERY cheap?
