So my parents and I went to take a look at a car today, it was in very nice condition and was only $7500. Anyways, this guy lived in a rather wealthy part of town and could not stop going on about it. Somehow he could turn everything he was saying about the car into something about how rich he was, literally every second sentence he would mention something about how he only bought good cars because his family could afford it or how his Dad is a lawyer or how he went to an elite private school ,or how he's moving to New York in three weeks to work in investment banking or whatever. I know you have money, but please, have some class. Funnily enough, during the test drive, he showed us his old house and it turns out his parents bought the same house my parents were going to buy 15 years ago. Small world, huh? Now, if only there was some way I could have subtly dropped a hint that he was being vulgar without explicitly saying so.
I hate you. I just get settled on the impossible-to-get-up-from-without-dislocating-your-knees couch, with blanket and comfy pillows and you want me to open the door so you can come inside. Especially when 2 minutes ago you refused my offer of an open door.
And putting dismembered mice in my slippers is REALLY not appreciated.
On another note. Fekking cold.
What was the car!
Saabs = win! The only main problem for me is I am a male aged between 18 and 24 so statistically likely to do something really stupid preceded by the words "Watch This!" before causing death, mayhem and destruction.
Dogs have owners, cats have staff.
(and lots of other words ending in "ibble").
Among classic car owners there's the "three to one" rule of thumb: For three bucks you invest your car gains one buck in resale value.I'm just very glad the Saab is worth hopefully nearly 4 times as much as what I paid for it (once I've spent a bit on it, though).
I haven't thought about exactly how much I'm going to spend on it to how much it'll be worth, but I spent ?220 buying it, want to spend no more than ?300 on it and sell it for over ?800ish. Which looking at the market I reckon is a reasonable sale price (although it doesn't comply to that rule of thumb; I did get a bargain with the car).
