Fuji The Car
Tram In Snow

My mother recently got a new car, after twenty years of driving her old one. I remember when she bought it new... It was (is) a 1988 Subaru DL Station Wagon, which I learnt to drive in. And is about a year older than my otherwise identical vehicle, color and stickers aside!

She got herself a Toyota Yaris(whatever that is) and tried to trade in her Subaru.

Guess how much she was offered as a trade in on her car?
$100!
Which means my car, being a little younger, is, in the eyes of car dealers, probably worth $110! That's less than I spent on it's last service! Gah! Ok, so, trade ins tend to be less than the market value of a car, but still, what an insult to Fuji the Wonder car. Why, the stickers alone would be worth more than that... Time I bought a bike... And/or a new car...

My mother's car is currently sitting in her back garden, while she works out what to do with it. Damn, it'd be worth more than that as scrap!

If it's in working order, then I'm sure there'd be plenty of people willing to at least double the price, if not quintuple or decca-upple (?) it.

It's insured for way more than that for starters! Kinda scary that it's worth more as a burnt out wreck than as a car...
