I just wanted to give a shout out to Bobby's car, Toby, a 1995 Geo Prizm that has finally met his end.
Toby kinda looks like this:
Except with the hood held down by a piece of wire, no working signals, the front end coming off, the drivers side door with no handle, the passengers side door can't open all the way, the sunroof leaks, no radio, cracked windshield, no power stearing, no breaks and dented on all four quarter panels.
We will get pictures of him for you before we send him off. It is a sight to behold.
SO, now it is car shopping time. The limit is $200.00 a month. That is about a $10,200.00 car, depending on what they decide with Bobby's credit score and blah blah.
We went and looked at this beauty yesterday:
2008 Toyota Corolla. They claim they can make the $200.00 payment work. I claim they are full of it. HOWEVER, perhaps for a 2005, 2006 or 2007 Corolla, yes. And pretty much the body style is the same and looks great!!
So that is the plan...get some places to go and look and see what we can see.
And we gotta figure out what to do with Toby...one junk yard said they would tow it and give Bobby $130...BUT if we tow a car in to a dealership and they say they will give us $500.00 for it, they are just going to jack the price of the car we are looking at up $500.00. So is it worth the $50.00 tow there?
And I keep saying WE because Bobby has designated me as his associate in this whole car buying thing. I bought my car and my motorcycle and I know they are some fast talking fuckers!
BUT WE GONNA GET DIS!
Any sugestions would be greatly appreciated!!
