Byebye Car, Hello Dollars

November 11th, 2006 at 07:28 pm

Sis has returned home, leaving her elderly bomb behind for me in exchange for borrowed money. After some thought I decided to sell it.

Reason 1: it is cheaper for me to catch the bus than run a car

Reason 2: house repairs are currently the highest priority

Reason 3: the medication I am on it is not advisable for me to drive.

One ad in the free paper and four potentail buyers later, $500 in my hot little hand.

    Just wondering - If it was "borrowed" money, will she repay the loan and the expect the car back at the end? Or was it given to you in lieu of any interest on the "loan"?

    Ralph, sis gave me her car in lieu of the loan. She actually borrowed $300 so I came out ahead, but I will be spending the money on presents for the family, including her and her daughters.
