Well, sent the $1000 down payment today and I got a suprise. A $80.00 transfer fee regardless of the amount sent. So I may be backing out of the deal, not worth 100 a month for 5 months plus 80.00 everytime i send him a payment, total bull *****.

No me and the seller did a signed, notarized payment thing. so I think I am backing out of it. Too much stupid crap to worry about, not worth it. I think I am just gonna buy the 95 Bonne SE near me for $1000.

Jeez! I'm gonna go nuts! He agreed to pay me the transfer fee back, and I am gonna send him the payments via money orders. Jeez, I am so tired of crap deals and ****.

I worked it out with him. See the deal was 1000 down, 100 month for 5 months per the agreement. Well today my dad made it to the bank to get my $1000 out for me, go to Western Union to find out the transfer fee went up significantly, $80.00 for $1000.00, good thing I had 80.00 in my pocket. Kinda pissed me off that the seller said that the transfer fee was only 29.99. So he agreed that I didn't want to pay 80.00 everytime I sent the monthly payment of 100.00 for 5 months, so he agreed to a 100.00 money order per month. He was also nice enough to apologize and subtract the 80.00 off of one of my payments! Good thing too. Don't feel like getting into my many years of being screwed over by friends and family, as why I cannot trust many people. It took me a week and a half to gain this guy'* trust.


I want peoples opinions, go ahead and express your opinion towards me, I don't mind. I will admit that I have a compulsive thing with buying and selling cars for profit, there'* nothing wrong with it, what'* wrong with making some extra cash? Besides, I don't even have my license yet. Never have the time or chance to, Dad works 6 days a week and the closest examination station is 15 miles away. Yes I know it sucks, as my moms Buick blew up and she can't come pick me up to take me, so I pretty much cannot make it whatsoever, as most of my family are full time blue collar workers that all work until 5:00, hence why I can never make it.

I goodness....back in 2000 I was young and thought it would be soooo cool to have a Fiero. I had a 85 black automatic. It was a death trap on wheels, but I loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was only a 4 banger, but with it being so light it would fly! It'* too bad it threw a rod within the first 3 months.
