A New Caaaaaar!!
1993 Chrysler Lebaron with 54K miles on it for $1250. Not bad. (June 2005)
So I meet this guy recently who tells me to "come on down" to Missouri. I told him the "Price" was definitely "Right". All lame-o "Price Is Right" puns aside, I just got back from Ozark, Missouri where I did indeed get my new car.
I found my new best friend on eBay of all places and despite some initial skepticism decided not to pass up this deal. It's a 1993 Chrysler Lebaron 4-door sedan with a 3.0L V6 and only 54,000 miles. The best part? I got it for $1250 so I definitely made out alright. My friend Danny Cameron, of THE BRICE KENNEDY SHOW and WEST VIRGINIA WORKS "fame", accompanied me on my 14 hour journey to the Show Me state. We passed through Columbus and Indianapolis and stopped off in St. Louis where we got to see the Gateway Arch and drove over medians in our late-model Dodge Dakota rental.
Things turned a bit dramatic as the starter blew just minutes before arriving in Ozark. Wade, the seller, fixed the problem at no charge and everyone was all smiles again. We were exhausted as we turned right around and drove back, this time through Kentucky. So I got a kick-ass road trip AND a kick-ass deal out of it. I wonder what I'll do next weekend.
