Selling my 13 year-old

Judy (formerly Mother’s car), has been spruced up…

Judy - Spruced Up

And last night I submitted an ad to CarGuide. I put $5000 on it, which is a tad high for a 1997 model, but she has only travelled 34,000km. Some others of that age were being advertised by dealers at a similar price, but none were under 170,000km!

The ad appeared on the site this morning, and at about 2.30pm I got the first call.

A potential buyer came, drove and offerred me $4500 – and the deal was done! Judy will be picked up by the new owner on Monday. And all this on Mother’s birthday!

Meanwhile, Yuko was photographing books in the garden…

Selling Mitsy

Today, I sold Mitsy!

The buyer was our gardener’s employee, Kon…

The deal was financed by Joe (our gardener and water man). He can be seen below signing the cheque while Kon looks on…

Then we posed for pictures with Mitsy…

Now, does anyone want to by a Ford Laser?
