I'm getting a new-to-me car tomorrow! I'm excited. I sold my beetle at the beginning of the summer for $600 over book value and am buying a 1999 Volvo V70 cross country wagon for $1500 under book - I just feel like a tough wheeling-dealing lady. I took it into the shop today, and it needs brakes but otherwise is sound, so I used the estimate to talk the man down. I'm so excited for my new car, it is so nice with a moon roof and heated leather seats and a HUGE trunk for my puppy and all his friends. It's high miles, but volvos go forever and I only have to drive around town for work. And it will be so safe and spacious for my future babies.
