I called the dealership advertising the $3,000 Camry and it went straight to voice mail.

The only Camry at a dealership that I found and hadn't seen before is a 2004 with 210,143 miles for $5,900, which CarGurus says is $775 over market.

I think that we can agree it is much worse than that.

Two people have been bidding back and forth on the one in Florida, which has less than an hour left.

I won the eBay Camry, but the reserve was $6,900.

I called and found out, then said "Good luck."

I don't expect him to reach out to negotiate.

My sister drove me down, ran errands, and took a nap.

I guess that I was supposed to go rogue, but having looked at all of the cars, I quickly felt sleepy, and slept through the Flo calling--and the beginning of my one telesession, so I asked to reschedule.

My niece and her dogs refused to leave me alone.

Apparently I'm likable!

My sister decided that she didn't like Mom driving her old and unsafe car.

She wants me to drive it!

She had me look up 2012-2014 Camries, but somehow there are even fewer of those than 2002-2006es!

Then my sister decided that Mom would just complain about it, so I had better buy an old and unsafe one.

I need to buy one tomorrow and drive home!

Another dealer responded--asking about which vehicle I was enquiring.

The one linked in the e-mail?

I tracked down their site and didn't see it.

Why is the ad still up?!

The other guy's insurance offered $5,300.

Refuse and demand $5,301?

Take it, cash the check quick, and let the insurance company have the car.
