The little blue car is gone!

We had not had any response to the advertisements I had been doing. It seemed that everybody around here wants a pickup truck or SUV or some kind of large vehicle. You just don't see many small cars on the road out here in the countryside in Saskatchewan.

But I knew the price was fair, and that someone would come along eventually.

Then yesterday afternoon, I got a message from a guy who asked a few questions. Turns out he was looking for a small economical car for his student son. Sounded like the little blue car was exactly what he was looking for.

He and his wife came out and I met them in a little village near the park. Took it for a test drive, and they agreed to buy it at my asking price of $2,300 firm. He actually tried offering less, but I stuck to my guns because I knew the little blue car was worth it. Not interested in negotiating. Plus, I told him, he's also getting a full tank of gas because we had just filled it up on the way back home on Tuesday.

But, we're sad to see him go. He was a great little car and never let us down.

The little blue car took us on lots of adventures!

    1. Yes, now it is one less thing to think about. Just over a week now and the adventure begins again.

  2. A great car but one less worldly possession you have to pay for/worry about. Great timing so you didn't have to store it

    1. We will miss "him" but you are right, one less thing to think about and it will help us save even more money down the road.

  3. You would think that in Canada that is a real steal. Bye Blue.

    1. More so in a big city where people are looking for something smaller and more fuel efficient but not so much out here in the country, especially in the winter.
