    Could maybe go a little more, but prefer to stay under $4g.
    Funny (not) as I just sold a mint '02 Taurus 3 weeks ago for $3,425. What happened is a week ago Sunday night about 2AM someone hit/run my wife's '94 Camry out front. Insurance is totalling it as repairs are over $3,200 so we need to replace it.
    Prefer another Toyota, or Honda. Must be small, automatic, good cold A/C, etc. Not a beater car. I figure maybe someone has one for sale & not listed on Craigslist or Autotrader. I've run into a few really nice vehicles just sitting in someone's driveway, that's how I found my last two cars, both were about $1,000 under NADA. So you get my drift, looking for an underpriced cremepuff, not a rebuilder or a kid's car. My head is spinning from checking Craigslist & running all over looking at cars listed as "mint" which were barely fair-good condition IMHO
    Anyhow, I figure to buy one ASAP, insurance money should be in this week, I have the cash anyhow to cover it so that won't be a holdup. I figure I have to have one within two weeks or she'll have me the rest of the way nuts.........:p
