Purchased a used car today.
Two door low slung black coupe. Led headlights and taillights. Charging port in the lower side of the rear bumper. It was just sitting forlornly there and I looked for any evidence of a sticker price or otherwise. None present. No dings and absolutely no rust.

Then the seller came over and said it runs good and has some unusual features. Has a strong blower to develop negative pressure underneath. It is very Fast and agile as well. He claimed he found it a challenge to drive himself.

So I asked the price. No sense in even test driving it if it was too expensive. No sense beating around the bush either. I found it somewhat unique.

I really was thinking of it for our youngest grandson I told him after I drove it for an hour first. Since I had purchased a few thing before from him and the prices were always more than fair we settled on a cash deal.

I just happened to have that much coin on me at the time. All two dollars of it. This remote control car develops enough suction that you can drive it on walls.

My guess is like myself most of you may never have seen one. The grandson is going to love it and his parents hate me if it leaves burnout marks or anything behind it on their walls. I have a defense ready. How was I supposed to know a remote control model car can drive on walls? Had you two been drinking when you witnessed this?

Sounds like fun!

How has he been doing with it? Any tickets yet? I hope not, as I'm sure that insurance on a wall-climbing car for a kid is already outrageous.

What sort of mileage does it get? I know, if you have to ask...

I just hope that financial issues do not make it imperative to re possess it and flip it. This is the only car that has itself climbing the walls rather than the usual scenario of the owner doing it over issues.

I have heard nothing from the parents. They just have stopped speaking to me for some reason reciently. I guess I will have to break the silence by reminding them it was not as serious as the remote controlled helicopters that kept crashing into their dogs and inflicting pain I gave him.

Well there is a bright side. They never will forget many of the items I passed along to the grandson. Along with their apprehensions of what may be next.

I told them long long ago I had absolutely no input into his desire to leave home to explore in that electric car so long ago. Plus not to be too concerned as the battery will not last forever.
