It is highly possible that the car will be totaled out.

I will miss Cassie if that is the case.

I am hopeful that I will be able to get a fair bit for her, though. KBB is about $3800. The mileage is the big reason it's not gonna be worth much more. But, she made it through 3 trips across the country, a trip to Key West, multiple trips to Miami, Naples, Orlando and oh so many other places.

Cassie, if you are to go, I shall truly miss you.

However, there is a sweet little Sunfire convertible on CL for $4500. I could pull $200 from savings, offer them $4K and have a nice little red zoomy car. :) :) :)

I also found a nice '01 'Stang for an unlisted price at a "dealership" near work. Gonna check them out. If I go that route, I could probably put down $2k or so and finance the rest. My credit isn't great, but it's not a huge amount to finance either. So, we'll see.

I get the rental in the morning. I'm more excited about that than anything.

No! That sucks!

I hate that you were able to pay it off and have it looking good (except for some of the interior, but mechanically it was sound) and now you might have to buy someone else's car. You don't know how good/bad they treated it!

On top of THAT, you know that the dealerships are going to treat you like you're stupid. Even if you show intelligence, they'll still treat you as if you all you care about is the color of the car.

You know, my dad-in-law may be able to come with you to look at cars... he knows a bit (is a tinkerer) and may be able to keep the guy honest (if not talk them down in price).

Argh. And all because of the damn parking lot by your work. :(

This is just worst case scenario that the car is totaled out. I'm hoping it's not because I *do* like my car. It's cute and kinda sporty but has that adult functionality of four doors and stuff. :)

We shall see what comes to pass. I mean, yeah, I'm not thrilled with the idea of someone else's car becoming my own and I have to learn all the quirks it has.

As for the dealerships, well, it's very easy to walk away. If I absolutely have to, I can take the bus for a while, it will suck donkey balls, but I don't really care all that much. And I'll make sure that they understand that, they can kiss my ass. :)

Again, this is all worst case. The estimator will probably be calling tomorrow to assess the damages.
