Woe is me! I should have gone to work monday!

If i had been at work monday i could have bought my co-workers car for 500 bucks! a 1982 300D that belonged to her father. The car was a 1 owner with all the service records with 113 K on it! The car was always kept indoors and had spent its entire life in South Carolina DOH DOH DOH. Of course it was sold by tuesday. That will teach me to take a personal day.

Wow, that is discouraging.

However, even $3K sounds like a good deal on that car. Or is it?
