It seems I just can't get rid of the '94. It'* a shame too because we could REALLY use the money. The initial plan was to trade BOTH the SSE and the Malibu in (the SSE to help take up the negative equity) and get something cheaper. But, two things are working against me on that...1) Not only am I upside down on the Malibu, I am WAY upside down on it...more like fully capsized. 2) The dealer would only give me what a wholesaler would give them for the SSE...which would be about 500 bucks
That wouldn't even put a dent in the negative equity.
So, plan B...sell the Bonneville outright, get more money, and take that with the Malibu instead. But...thanks to the economy...that isn't working either. And I refuse to go much lower than what I was initially asking for it...my rock bottom price would be about 1600 (what I payed for it a year ago BEFORE any repairs). Still no dice. Oh yeah...and Alyssa flat out said "I would rather bus it to school than to drive that beast". So I doubt she will be driving at all.
So, now I have a perfectly good car that is not on my insurance anymore just sitting around doing nothing. I still would like to have something to turn a wrench or two on, and the '94 would fill the bill nicely. But what to DO to it....
