Exactly what I was thinking too. A lot of banks don't like accepting them because there'* just as much fraud with MOs as there is checks.

I only deal in cash or certified cashier'* check. That'* it. No exceptions. Take it or leave it. Been burned too many times by bad checks and money orders.

If someone wants to write a personal check, that'* fine. Go with them to the bank it'* being drawn against and cash it. They never want to do that (probably because they know it won't clear).

Be wise with how you collect payment. Trying to do someone a favor now will turn into a nightmare for you later.

I am meeting the kid with his dad at my bank at 1pm today. 98% sure it will sell. I am pretty excited, however, I don't have a ride home (40 miles away) if it does sell, LOL.

Good luck with the sale, Haro That'* a beautiful car. I wish I lived closer, cause I'm starting to look for a "new" one.

SOLD

They came down, looked it over a bunch more. He noticed the thermostat gasket was leaking (that must have just started), but otherwise was very pleased with it again (last time they saw it, it was not washed)

He finally mentioned that he only brought $5500 cash, and I'm thinking, great. I came back at him with $5700, and he went on rambling about not wanting to push me around, blah blah blah. He finally came back at $5600 and I said sold. We walked over to the bank, and did the title transfer and lean release right at the bank.

its gone. I feel sad and happy at the same time. It was hard to watch it drive away. I had a lot of energy into that car. The car is going to a 20yr old, hopefully a good home.

He paid $5600 cash
I made $3100 profit
I paid off both of my car loans
I still had an extra $850 added to my checking account (I owed $2600 on the bonnie)

the end.

Sounds like a great deal to me! Sell 1 car, pay off 2 and still have a bit left over
