To go along with the “worst vehicle” thread, what was your least expensive used car purchase?
Not purchased from a relative or friend who gave you a bargain price
In running/driving condition when purchased
When I was growing up, our automotive low point was a $100 VW bug my parents bought some time in the late 70’s. The thing was faded green and had spray-paint green splotches of a slightly different shade covering rust spots, so it looked like a frog with smallpox. The rear seat upholstery was torn so they threw an old blanket over it and called it good.
But it did run and I had the great privilege of driving it to high school. So it wasn’t our worst vehicle, only our cheapest. (The worst was a Vega).
