Glad I'm not the only one feeling bad watching an old car go. I had a Buick Century with 199K on it I had to sell, really felt bad I never saw it go over 200. I put more than 100K on it myself and that car took me everywhere through my mid 20's to early 30'S. I was in just about every state east of the Mississippi with it. Strapped canoes to the top of it, took it places it shouldn't have been. I lived out of it for most of the week and had more than enough gear in it to live through anything. Paint started coming off it and the interior was getting pretty bad, still ran great when I sold it.
Even has great ending, I sold it to some young Mexican kid for $300, he gave me $200 down to hold it for him. He never called back for like 2 months, me being way too nice I still had it. When I finally tracked him down I gave him 3 days to get it. The kid only transferred the title, he drives it way with no insurance and no plate. A week later I get a call from Bob Kabulski of City Wide towing (yea that guy who is always in the news if you're local) demanding money from me for the towing and storage. Apparently the registration was still on file in my name since the kid never registered it. With great pleasure I told him I didn't own it anymore but would be glad to provide him with a set of keys for $300.
