    A friend of mine invited me to come with him

    A friend of mine invited me to come with him in a couple weeks.My friend Danny buys and sells classic cars for a living and he knew I always been looking for a 1970 to 1972 Monte Carlo.Said there is one coming up in an auction in a couple weeks and I have the money saved up.Luckily talked to my boss and said yes to a couple days off of work.I have 2 vacation days to use up.Danny showed me the pictures of this Monte Carlo,a 1970 and looks good after a full body off restoration.The story of wanting one is after seeing the music video of Martina McBride's song Wrong Baby Wrong.Plus I love that body style Monte Carlo.I said yes on Tuesday and he signed me up for a bidder's pass.

    Sounds great, Danielle; hoping to hear the results of your trip upon your return.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    Good luck in the auction. Just hope there is no one else looking for the same thing - it keeps the price down.

    I guess the best strategy is simply to look at the things you're interested in, and tell yourself what the absolute maximum is you're willing to pay for it.

    As for the guy who deliberately raises prices - let him pay through his nose for some junk. Would serve him right.
