Yesterday, after work, I met with the Volvo owner in order to inspect the car. I have little knowledge when it comes to cars. If it looks good, I’ll buy it! Only that’s not really the truth because I have wanted a Volvo since the last one I owned was totaled and I have yet to make the dive.
Just for fun, this morning, while sipping my first cup of coffee, I searched mihow.com to find out just how many times I brought up my fondness for these old gems. I thought I’d share a few of them. (Key word: “few”. There were more mentions I did not link to. I am a loser, apparently.)
The first time I brought it up was on May 22nd, 2002. And then a month later I discovered Ebay. I brought it up again two days later. And then again the the following day I decided not to buy one after discovering how much insurance cost. On the 28th of June I was officially defeated by the insurance companies after being told I’d have to pay more in insurance than for the actual car. On the 20th of November I placed a bid on a car and then I made an appointment to see it on the 21st (which I never went to.) And then I placed a bid on June 23rd, 2003.. On July 1st I brought it up again but only in passing.
I’m 31 and this one has been offered to me should I choose to buy it. I won’t lie, it has its problems but overall it’s in really great condition considering it’s almost as old as me. This morning, after be woken by dawn, I called Geico and got a quote: $360.00 every six months. That’s one roadblock overcome. Now, I just need to figure out if I want to pay for the damn thing. Please, won’t someone tell me what to do, dammit. I hate spending large sums of cash. I hate it.
