Default What would you do

Tonight I was at goodwill picking up some of the stuff I had found yesterday...I work at Goodwill btw...ha So I was talkin to one of my co-workers and tellin her I drove a 2003 Sebring LX today. This lady over heard me and was like "Your looking to buy a car?" so I told her i had to sell my X first....well she said thats what her husband is looking for.....I told her i want 8k for the truck but we could probably talk about it....

She told me she has a 2002 Monte Carlo SS red, Loaded she only drives it in the summer and she just bought a trailblazer thats why she wants to sell it....here is the kicker...it only has 11 or 12,000 miles on it....she said that if her husband would want my truck that she would just buy my X for $8k and then sell my her Monte for $8k. Now I'm not stupid and I know a 2002 With only 12k for mileage should be going for a HELL of a lot more that $8k. THe lady was kinda dizty so I think this was reasonable to her....so what would u do...would you take advantage of this deal/lady knowing full well the car is worth a hell of a lot more than $8k or should I stick with the 03 Sebring Lx?

You'll get more car with the SS. Not to mention a 3800. Let her talk to her husband about it, maybe he'* got more sense about him.

yes, make sure there is nothing missing. the blue book price for that car is $15,340. can u say steal! i would ****** it up in a heartbeat, given it would be in your best interest <you cant go off road with a monte carlo>. yes, do make sure that she talks it over with her husband and maybe throw in a couple of little plus'* to make her feel special, so she doesnt feel so ripped off later <good wash, shampoo carpet, make it pretty, matching floormats, etc> go get'm tiger.

I'd trade straight up no questions asked.....Mainly because you're going from a Ford to a bow tie.....You're starting to come to the right side of the fence.
