Farewell to an old friend...
She came in to my life about 4.5 years ago. I needed a moderately nice 4 door sedan for for my real estate business. It was just there sitting unused beside the building that I worked out of at the time. It had been sitting for a few months since she bought a replacement car. The tires had gone flat and the paint was shot form years sitting outside. A '95 Jag that my real partners wife had purchased almost new about 10 years prior. It had about 12,000 miles on it when she bought it. When I bought it had about 120,000. Everybody said that's high for a Jag. I heard all the stories about how I better have my own personal mechanic, blah, blah.
Here is a tip for agents or anybody trying to save some money on a car. Luxury cars with a few extra miles can be bought pretty cheap. It beats the heck out of a $500 per month car payment!
Finally the time came to say goodby. 4.5 years is the longest that I have ever owned any car. I put the ad on Craigslist and had several calls. Today a young man with more energy and mechanical skills than bought the car. It had 193,000 miles and the Kelley Blue book on it was still $1850. I let him him beat me up a little on the price and finally let him give $1700 cash.
I guess since I drove it for 4.5 years and put about 70,000 miles on on it I did OK... I think that Dave Ramsey would be proud :-)
