In 2011, I bought a new car. In some ways, I was still new to the whole process. I had not owned a car since my first one died. I was, however, very much in love with the car. I had been a commuter so far, and I was always on the go. I wanted a car that was not only stylish, but that was also easy to drive, and I was determined to make that happen.
When I bought my first car, my mom asked me what I wanted the car to be. “A Rolls Royce,” I told her. “A Rolls Royce with a convertible top.” “Oh,” she said, “that sounds nice.
I thought about that for a moment, but I didn’t really understand how a car could be both a convertible and a Rolls Royce. The convertible part did make sense, but how was the top? I didn’t know if I wanted the top to be removable or not, but I was determined to find out.
I had a good friend who was a professional photographer who told me once that a great way to get people to like your car is to make it really gorgeous, and then make them feel they have to have a convertible top. I was really determined to achieve this. I was not only concerned about making a car that people would want, but making the top removable and convertible and all that.
In a way that car is like the ultimate status symbol in a way. It’s so big, so cool, so masculine, so masculine. If you’re not sure how to make it work, you can always just get a new one. Maybe you should have a talk with someone, like a guy friend or someone in the garage sales, and find out what he or she thinks.
I would say that I’ve gotten a lot of messages telling me that my convertible top is for sale. I have since then started a campaign to get the top for sale. Not so much to get it to sell, but to get it to somebody who would like it. I’m in the process of posting a list of all the car parts that I think need to be fixed and a message on my website asking for interest in the top and the list of parts.
To quote a friend of mine who owns a garage, “If youre going to sell your car, you need to show the car to the person who is interested in buying.” He also added, “I sell cars because I want to live in a society that values people who can afford decent cars.
I say that because I know that people who purchase a car for less than what it is worth are usually not the car lover that is in the market to buy it. It’s like the car dealer saying, “I can’t fix your car because I don’t know what you will want to do with it when you get rid of it.
My dad was a real estate agent and he said in the mid-70’s that the best way to sell your car is by showing it to the person who is interested in buying it. This is especially true if you dont need the car and you can get a discount.
