Bit of a threadjack, but what's up with beater car prices in (at least) Texas?
Thought there'd be good pickin's via CL - but there's not as much as I'd expect given how large the Dallas area is (although I did find a $650 Fiat 500 Sport that looks interesting) -
- whereas in the SF Bay there's the usual $250 1996 Dodge Intrepid (runs) and $750 TR7 (ran when parked in 1989) and $800 2011 BMW 328i having had a car fire in the trunk (no key, imagine the $500carmyass!1!!1 when you showed up)...
Is it the Cali smog and registration requirements?
But back to the topic. Had anyone linked this previous forum thread, that's a good read about car costs?:
Just ran it through, seems like now I know how much I need to spend, I just need to get the money. I've been promoting a GoFundMe on social media, but unsurprisingly, nobody has donated. So I guess I'm on my own here.
And yeah, I'm p much SOL finding a good Lemons car in texas
Patience goes a long ways. Cars will come up. Start saving money and keep an eye out.
