Default Lumina is finally SOLD (updated 8-27)

http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/car/396085496.html

does anyone know how to put returns in a craigslist ad? it doesnt take html does it?
does anyone know how to put multiple ads up on craigslist? I want to list it in Minneapolis (more visability) and Mankato, but it only lets me do one. I even waited a whole day to post the Mankato one, and it still won't let me. What is the trick?

I have it parked in a high visability spot in town across the street from work also. I got a local call on it yesterday, the kid offered $1200 before even driving it. I told him I couldn't accept his offer this soon, being the first offer and what not. I will probably stay pretty firm on the 1500, but might go to 1300.

Not bad for a $350 car eh?

I would list it on the lumina forums also. I would sell the car to the kid at $1350. He probably would have taken it.

Good luck with the sale, Andrew!
BTW, have Carmax appraise it. They're pretty good about trade ins IIRC.

Just cause he was asking about the price does not mean thats all he cares about. Think about it...he just turned 16 got the license and is looking for his first car in his price range, and from their on im sure he is going to learn alot about cars as have i since my first car(1986 Cadillac Fleetwood, C body) purchased when i just turned 17. That HT4.1 motor from gm was the biggest death trap.

Well he said he wanted a test drive, but our schedules conflicted yesterday, he said he would call again today if he was interested.

I checked a while ago, trade in value is $1250 and retail is like $1550.

let me be greedy the first week

to post in more than one place on Craigslist, you either have to wait like a week, get a paid account, or change up the wording. It compares the text of the posts, so if you take and move the sentences and paragraphs around, you'll be able to post it elsewhere.

Post it on MyMonte.com also, or if you want, send me the info and I will post it there for you. If it wasn't so far away, I'd consider it to do a 5 spd swap into...

I don't know about you but if a guy in a town of 1000 potential buyers offers me $100 less than my bottom price I would have taken the money and run!

Look at the price drops Pete has taken already on his 94 Bonnie.........the longer it sits the more it'll cost YOU!

look at this way.....the money he offered you can turn into something else that can net you some profit!

Andrew you wouldn't be a very good player on Deal or No Deal! You'd be the guy going home with $1 in his case!
