Bye Bye Camaro

My Camaro was a second car for me and I was trying to sell it for about a month on Ebay but didn't get a single offer . I went to a local .com place that buys cars and had a check in my hand in a half hour . Has anybody had any luck selling their Camaro .. I didn't see any sell in the month mine was on there. I loved the car and am gonna miss driving it but my daughters college tuition is more important . Maybe she will buy me a car in the future when she makes the big $..

That's very selfless of you to sell the car for your daughter. You're making the right decision!

Actually $3500 + $1200 = $4,700

$4,700/7,000= $0.67 a mile

everyone's credit sucks and it's impossible to get financing for a private car sale, but anyone can get a loan on a new car, so no one is buying them privately...

I think the car was a better investment than the college.

Not everybodys credit "sucks"... and you do know they say cars are the worst investment right??

In regards to the OP, someday you will get a new Camaro!

id say taking out loans for school is smart though. the statistics speak for themselves when comparing those with college degrees and those with High school ones. but thats a diff discussion

Cant argue with that what so ever. id say its more about your major and your future earnings. if your going to earn 50K or more right out of school you can afford to have a little debt.
