So this is me and my new car. From Craigslist. The E34 was just going to be too much trouble.. needed a tow and then maybe the mechanics would be able to make her better.
So I was emailing back and forth with a gentleman that seemed to really know a lot about cars.. but he wasn’t that talkative. Anyway so i looked up the address. It was 2 hours away by bike, and an hour and a half by bus. Bestie had to go to class at 6, so it was 4:30 and I needed a plan. Anyway, I talked it through with bestie, and the bus was really going to be a waste of time.
I biked in 2 hours to the house. ( Wayzata trails are really scenic.. must return)The gentleman was not around but his wife was. Bless her soul, sweet old last. She said I was crazy for biking. I declined a drink even though i had finished my water. We did a test drive.. and i knew i wanted the car. Well i knew before i left home.. seeing as it would have been a tiresome bike ride. Old lady called me crazy for biking.. and said she was going to have to take a picture before i left.. and she did.
We signed the title, chatted, and she offered me her homemade blueberry jam/jelly in America i guess. then i got into the car, tossed my bike in the trunk ( lay it gently). Waved goodbye and left. It was a steal price!! 1997 model, 186k miles, i may need to swap a spark plug, fix a small rust spot, tires were new, alloy rims instead of base steel. I am pretty much grateful I could get this!!
