Beth has $1,000 to buy a car.
Her Houston grandparents gave her the same amount they gave her brothers when they were looking for cars. Beth anticipated finding an old reliable but well used car much like her brothers found with their $1,000.
Granny Annie is having lunch at the Senior Center. Her table mate Jane is talking about a car for sale. She does not want to sell it to boys in their town because she does not want to see them driving it around and popping wheelies, etc. This car is Jane's baby and she is the original owner of this loaded 1999 Chevrolet that only has 74,000 miles on it. She really likes it when Granny Annie says her granddaughter is looking for a car. Jane would like to sell it to a girl and really would like to sell it to someone out of town so she doesn't have to see it all the time. The little car is loaded and listed blue book for $3800. Jane says she will sell it to Beth for $1,000. Granny Annie tries not to faint and fall in the floor.
Yesterday after the test drive and after having a mechanic check out the vehicle the money was paid and the car was transferred to Beth's ownership.
Reasons Jane says she gave us such a good deal.
1. It would be driven by a girl.
2. Jane was in the Navy for 30 years.
3. Jane noticed Ron's "Senior Chief" emblem on my truck.
"The Senior Chief always has eyes on everything" Jane said.
