That's harsh! He's going to be awfully sorry if some pedophile traces down his son from the picture and info.

 

I wonder how much he wants for the shirt in the picture.

Sorry but having been lied to so many times by CL sellers makes me skeptical. Bottom line; he put money into a car that is now damaged. A 99 Cavalier with 150 rounds and body damage......................No thanks.

This is either a "practical" joke or we are missing a big chunk of the story. 

 

Why would someone put $4000 in such a "great little car" and then have a son with a slight accident that dings up the metal and decide it is worth selling for $1600?  That's a $2400 loss.  Something is ascrew there.

Not a pot hole, the punk hit a telephone pole. I'd keep the car and try selling the kid.

I'm still trying to figure out how the hood and front bumper got damaged as it appears he side swiped the pole. I'll own up to hitting a pole with my first car but luckily there was no noticeable damage to my car or the pole,and no my mother didn't put my car up for sale,I bought it myself and more importantly she never found out!

When Jared was here I told him that if I bought him a car he had to obey everything I said about the car or he would have to ride with me to the crusher when it got smashed. He asked if I really would. Yes I would in a heartbeat. A car is a very poor substitute for a child.

Oh man, I think I wrecked my first car about every six month. It is a scam or there is a lot more to the story then what he is saying.

Sounds like a scam to me. Another clever way to get attention to a car that's nothing special.

Ad's gone, must have been "caught" if scam!   My daughter ditched her first car 3rd, day. Always left it in gear (an automatic) when she parked it and it rolled down drive to neighbors and hit small tree, knocked off rear bumper. Finally smacked into someone on an intersection from NOT stopping.   She was an Idiot driving when young. Carload of kids most time too. We finally developed some respect for the cars as we grew, but we were just lucky maybe?  I never got her anything but junkers tho, she was hard on them.

The ad is gone so, I never saw it. I believe that we have to be harsh with kids about life or death things and cars are one of them. Every year, in my area, we have a car full of teenagers doing 80 in a 30 zone that hits a tree(4 - 6 dead). Usually less than 2 miles from the high school. I agree with Willie, I'd rather scare them, than lose them. He also has to know that you will keep your promise to crush it. My son didn't get his license until he was 18 and had to drive himself to college. He saw kids wrecking cars frequently and was afraid it would happen to him. I was able to find him a mint condition 96 Taurus Wagon with 27000 original miles. He loves it and only drives to and from school. It sat all last summer.

 

Most teens have no fear so, they don't worry about consequences. That is why 18 year olds can be made into soldiers. A harsh parent is probably only trying to save the kid from himself. If it was your kid, would you worry about the money or the lesson? On the other hand, it could be just a sales scam. Good Luck, Rick
