My friend's husband graciously arranged the services of a garage who have the ability to take the vehicle "up on the rack" for inspection at no cost to me. It turns out that the seller has no title (just a bill of sale) and expects me to get a replacement title if I want one (like, what? after the sale?) I will not buy it without a title, nor a title check.When I stated my requirements to the seller on the phone this morning and asked him for the VIN number, it got awfully quiet on the other end of the line, so it's a real possibility that I may not get a car after all - at least not this one.
But, that's ok! I'm simply not anxious to react on impulse (something I'm notorious for) especially since I have proven to myself that I can survive without a vehicle of my own and that life does go on... if even a bit more inconvenient, but it can be done!
I will keep you informed! Meanwhile, you can find me in my office:
under close supervision of my boss, who keeps a very watchful eye on me!
...and instead of going to the water cooler, I'll stretch my legs by walking around the corner to see the sunflowers in the rose bed:
Have a nice day everyone!
