Hey CarTalk -
I need a car to get around the East Coast for about six months, Jan - Jun. I see a lot of roughly $1000 cars on Craigslist, early 90s Corollas etc. Am I crazy to think that I could just pick one of these up, drive it about 500 miles a month, then sell it on? Or is that asking for disaster?
I know you guys don’t have any crystal balls or anything, but I have no idea if this is a totally awful plan or something sort of doable. Any tips on how to make it go smoothly (dealership inspection?) would be great too.
