How I Sold My Toad

SOLD! 2005 Sunfire Toad.

Sorry it was not sold to a RV'er to make use of the baseplate and wiring with diodes. About $750.00 value gone to waste.

I did place ads in the irv2 classifieds, escapees website forum and the RV.net free classifieds, none brought any responses in two and half weeks. I also placed two other "free" online classified ads for automobiles on other sites and had no response from those ads.

Sold for $8,950. we paid $11,482. brand new GM had a total of $5,000. in rebates in March, 2005. msrp was $18,375.00 cost of ownership was $2,532.13 for 31 months $81.68 per month. By far the least expensive car I have ever owned. The best trade in offer was $7,100.

I put a for sale sign in the car, also a sign stating 34MPG and "TOAD READY" and put the car on the main highway at the corner of our street. We live near the Algonac State Park most if not all campers pass our street traveling the state park. Hoped it would attract a RV'er but it sold to someone who just liked the car, it took 4 days to sell it. Sold it to the first caller Sunday morning at 10:30am, he had looked at it for a couple of days before calling.

The purchaser asked me to remove the wiring plug receptacle "umbilical cord" and the Break Buddy breakaway. That saves me $75.00 replacement cost for the breakaway. I left the baseplate attached.

Don't give up on the old ways of doing things they still work.

In 2006 I sold my Yamaha Vino 125 Scooter "toad" displaying it on the corner of our street and my Versa Haul hitch hauler for the scooter was sold the same way. Placed classified ads for the Scooter and Versa Haul and never received any responses back than either.

Sold my 1993 Torch Red Corvette Convertible with White top, it sold in three days on the highway in May of 2005.





Our 2008 HHR is scheduled for production week of October 28, 2007. A week to 10 days in transit should be delivered week of November 4th.

Did the same thing when I sold our '01 Saturn Wagon. Sat it out in the yard, and it was sold in 5 days. Got $5 over asking price (which was high NADA). Go figure..
