It's tough selling a car privately these days.

I couldn't even get $500 for a 2006 Toyota Corolla LE. Went to the dealership and they gave me $2500 for it.

Everyone is buying on credit, signs of tough economic times ahead! I had my 1968 Mustang for sale and had numerous inquiries about whether I would accept a payment plan/installments.

Wait until the Spring when somehow more people would want to buy cars again.

I'll jump on the snow photo train. Traction off and empty private cut-blocks makes for a good time. Maybe a lift and 33's to keep from getting stuck in the future...

Obligatory pre-rinsing off the road grime shot, I'm driving it in the winter for the first time since my wife needs my Jeep for a week. The AWD system is a blast on snow and ice.

I usually don't drive it in winter but for a variety of reasons I put plates back on in December to enjoy it on sunny days. Enjoyed it lots on the weekend.

Amazon. Thule or Yakima don't make fairings that fit on OEM VW racks. So I had to go with Inno. Way less wind noise.
