When I was in my early 20s, I sold a car in my living room.
The car was a 1994 Toyota Tercel, which back then, wasn’t any more than 5 or 6 years old. I loved that little car and its manual transmission. I couldn’t take the lack of air conditioning and sticky vinyl seats. With an ad in the local want ads, I had a buyer come look and make me an offer after the test drive.
I think back on that day and am shocked at how lazy I was in protecting myself, and the car. Then again, times are different today, so it’s a good idea to learn from mistakes of the past.
I’ll quickly tell the story, you see if you can point out all that I did wrong.
