Not known for my thrift...I thought I would tell this story.
I was tired of putting mileage on my summertime rag top car so Jim went looking for a commute car for me. He found it at a local Auburn dealer and we paid cash for it this weekend.
It is a 2002 maroon Alero..... 12,896 original miles.....(REALLY...under 13,000 miles) for $6,100.
The dealer said he paid $6,000 at a government auction. It had been in the motor pool.
I bought the car from the owner who was working the floor selling cars. Times are tough. I think he was now going to make his payroll.
In the meantime...it will do.
If you have short stories of how you are cutting back or making ends meet please comment to this entry. God bless us.
