Sold my first car yesterday...ouch.

Yep. Sold my moldy old Oldsmobile. Got a grand for him. I didnt want to but I needed the money and we have to many cars as is so some of them are gonna have to go. But oh well. He went in good hands lol.

Now I got money to finish the Focus and then I can sell that guy and get a pretty penny and hopefully afford College. And a pick up truck or sports coupe.

So what was it like when you go rid of your first vehicle? My experience sucked. lol

And it appears I accidentally posted this in the wrong sub-forum. Oops...

my first car was silver sedan Focus, it was SPI so I felt it had to go, if back then I knew all the stuff I know now, I would convert it to SVT zetec and keep it.

by the way,
if anyone knows about silver sedan shell in good condition somewhere here in texas... let me know :P

Thats true. The thing was having all sorts of brake problems and the frame was starting to rust a bit. Suspension was shot, exhaust was having problems, ect.

I go back and forth on my cars. Some days I want to sell everything and simplify. Some days I want to give each the attention and mods they deserve
