Default I'm sad it has to come to this.

I'm going to be selling my car. I plan on doing so once school ends at the end of April.

I've been doing some research on what I could get for the car. It looks as if it will sell for $3,500 USD. However, that is when I put in the fact that the entire car has over 175,000 miles on it. The car has that, but the engine has only 30,000. I want to ask $4,000 for it, but I don't know if people will buy it for that much. I think it is a pretty good deal, considering that everything runs great, and I have never had problems. The only flaw is the body. There are a few spots where the paint is wearing away. But other than that, the car is in quite good condition.

I would like some opinions on this. If I can get $4,000 for it, I would be happy, but I don't know if I am asking the right amount.

When I start working again in April, I will have enough money for the car I've been looking for. I'll keep what I am getting quiet for a while, but I can tell you one thing. It probably won't be another Bonneville.

Try to get 4 Large for it Sol....

Damn, kinda sux that you have to part with it. I guess that SSEi is out of the budget eh? Oh well, who sez you can't get one in the future.

Whatever you do, BC will always have a open seat for ya

Yea, I've looked at a few SSEi'*, and the prices are way out of my range. I would love to have one, but I have other cars in mind right now.

It might be too shocking to hear, I don't know if I want to give it away right now.

Echo sounds promising.

Well, I can tell you this. It'* a car I've secretly loved for a long time. I've kept it to myself, and never really showed interest in getting one until now.

It'* a fast car. My dream is to have a fast car. I know SSEi'* can go fast, but I can do a lot more with this particular car.

Can't say. But it'* not too much faster than a stock Bonnie. But it responds to mods better.
