Feeling screwed ...

Do you remember last month when I donated my little car for auction at APT? Boy, never again! Somebody wanted that little 2 owner car with less than 98K miles on it, they wanted it for a song. The Blue Book was $1,800 for it in the condition it was in. You've all seen it. I thought for a fund raising auction, they would get a good price for her. Year, sure. I was WRONG! It just seemed a little fishy. It turns out that some auto salvage place gets the cars and sells them for junk or parts. I'm sure the buyer won't, but he will make a nice profit off of me and obviously APT knows it. They could have told me! I was offered 1,500 for it, but thought they would get more for it than that for a tax deduction. I am disgusted, disheartened, unhappy, and pissed!




I'll bet the buyer was chuckling up his sleeve when he drove her off the lot for a measly $600! No comments please, I am upset enough about this, I don't need your pity or whatever. Just thought you might think twice before you donate anything like a car for a 'good cause.'

  1. The only car I ever donated was not running. That baby looks like a sweet ride!

  2. I wonder about those so called non profit who want you to donate your rig.

  4. That sucks. No good deed goes unpunished, right?! I always assumed those organizations asking for donated cars actually donated them to those who NEED them. That sucks!

  5. Can't trust anything now days. Too bad it has come to that.
