Another Satisfied Craig’s List Car Purchaser.
I saw an ad on Craig’s List for a Pontiac Grand Prix (The one in the little picture at left.)
I wasn’t really looking for a car, but it sounded too good to be true, excellent condition, southern car, new tires, rust-free, low miles, silver, alloys, dark tint windows, nicely equipped, spare tire/jack never out of trunk, Owner’s Manual, wholesale priced, quick sale-need money, etcetera.
I checked the car over at length and checked for flood evidence, etcetera.
Because the car was local I decided to call the local number and go and see why the ad was stupid, not intending to buy it. The guy turned out to be kind of a jerk, but his story for selling seemed real and he got in big fight with his girlfriend for selling that car and not a different one they had. She loved that car. It was almost a knock-down drag out and I was hoping there were no fire-arms in the house.
However, the car was fantastic. I couldn’t not buy it. I checked with my DMV about the out of state title and to be sure the car wasn’t hot. I had no problems transferring the clean title, etcetera.
The car turned out to be fantastic. Everything works. It needs nothing, uses no fluids, and drives like new. This car is clean under the hood and everywhere. There is not even any corrosion beginning on nuts or bolts in the engine compartment that shows on cars here in the rust belt in just a year or two.
I did buy it a new battery to replace the original Delco. It deserved something nice.
