Since my car died a week ago I'm looking for something very cheap to get me to and from work. I drive 30 miles one way M - F so gas is a consideration.

Given my meager budget it'll have to be something older and my wife has a friend who is selling a '99 Civic LX 5 speed with 165k miles in good condition . She is asking for 2200.00 which I have already been approved for at the SECU.

I was hoping to keep it under 2k so that I could include the tax, tag, title, oil change, etc within the 2200. She says she can't go lower than 2200.

Thoughts on whether or not A. This car will last 2 years or more and if B. Y'all think 2200 is a fair price.

I have a 2005 Equinox that blew the motor two days ago. It has 178k miles and is sitting at a gas station in Kannapolis because I can't afford to tow it anywhere.

It's not worth fixing, could I get anything out of it? Thought about just giving it away of someone will tow it, but I'm trying to figure out what other options might be out there.

Thoughts?

Thanks

CLT food help

23 April 2015 - 06:32 PM

I work for a dentist from Queens, NY and he misses NY Style pizza. He's been here a year, live in the University area and eats out a lot as he's single and can't cook.

I took him to Rosario's in Concord and he really liked it and asked for suggestions in CLT, but I don't have any.

Any suggestions?

Also, he's Korean and wants to find some good Korean food, any suggestions on that front?

Thanks in advance.

Can buying help

I'm a bad negotiator and I couldn't get through to Dave Gettleman, so I turn to you guys. My credit sucks so I'm looking for something used for my expanding family and it must be cheap and affordable.

I'm only interested in the Sienna or Odyssey and I found this, it's in great shape and I can finance it and get the payments where I need them, but they got the approval done at list price.

Should I really just be happy I got approved and not negotiate? If I were to try to get a better price what would you guys recommend as a starting point and a bottom line?

Thanks!

Having another baby - prayers appreciated

31 January 2015 - 08:02 PM

So...oops.

After the first pregnancy scared the crap out of us, saw the wife hospitalized multiple times and resulted in a c-section at week 30 we knew there would be risks should she become pregnant again.

Welp, she's pregnant again. I'm excited as I always wanted two kids and my son desperately needs a sibling, but I'd be lying if I didn't admit to being worried about the wife's health and obviously that of the baby.

She's 8 weeks along right now; at this point in the first pregnancy she already had a subchorionic (sp?) bleed. If this week's upcoming ultra comes up clean I'll take that as a tremendous step in the right direction. That's one prayer request.

We have a much larger support system in place now, which is and has already been a huge blessing.

So, here I am happy as hell and scared shitless at the same time. So, I'm asking for prayers for a far less eventful pregnancy and that everyone comes out healthy at the end..hopefully 7 months from now.

Thanks in advance.
