    with this person i probably will work on the car just because of his income level. i took care of his last car as well (97 century) before coolant got into the oil from a cracked head on a 3100

    usually i make sure they know the car has a boat load of miles and i only warranty it until it get's out of the driveway. if it makes it too the road it;s yours LOL

    I had to learn to make it clear that I wasn't married to any car I sold. Guess I'm saying "I can relate" though I was able (eventually) to break that chain by saying up front "as is, where is" and have them say it back to me. "Now, what is your understanding of that phrase?" And have them respond back to me. If they didn't get it I simply wouldn't sell to them. I think I only had one person that I decided not to sell to, however.

    It's interesting that it was ME who pretty much sorted this out. She saw how I'd do my best to make a nice car and then have people bring them back because they got a flat tire or something and she was tired of seeing me work for free because I felt bad that the car wasn't perfect. I AM sort of soft-hearted. So I implemented the practice above and that really helped.

    and i sold it today to a friend that was in need of a car and is on fixed income do to disability. offered me 2300 if i fix the gas gauge. also going to do some neglected work as well


    but for a car i have only had $609 into totally including registration not a bad profit at all and hopefully it serves him well as transportation. i know the heated seats will be a god send for him do to back pain issues (reason for the disability)

    well the car has been haivng charging issues and ebay was having a 10% off special so bought an alt for 30 game to day just in time as my old alt caught fire....


    yes you red that right


    so here is the new one came with a bonus voltage booster tricks the computer into putting out more voltage. normally GM only has these cars at a 13.4v charging voltage this ups it to 14v so brighter headlights warmer seats, beater rear defrost and faster windows!!!!

    it is hard to turn by hand and will not even do a full revolution wile the new/old one will spin for 2 and half revolutions

    here is the engine bay car is surprisingly clean i still can not fully believe i got this for $250 still have not even spent 500 total on the whole car with registration and the parts i have repaced (rear shocks and now alt and tensioner pully) will need an A/C compressor the bearing on th pulley is beyond shot
