So, awhile back, a kind friend offered us an old beater, if we could get it running. We did, it did, and we got it licensed and insured.
Older Daughter drove it happily for a time, saving her pennies, and eventually bought a small pickup truck. So we sold the aforementioned beater to a young feller for about $600 cash, and everyone walked away happy.
That was roughly four years ago ... give or take.
Today, we got a certified letter stating that the car has been in an impound lot since March 2016, and because we are the last registered owners, we owe them a bit over $2K.
So let me get this straight: because I was the last one to do the right thing, I get the financial shaft?
The guy we sold it to drove on the old plates, never registered the car, and abandoned it when it stopped running. Apparently. In the meantime, we haven't seen the car since the day it was sold, but now I'm supposed to pay 60 days' worth of fees to the impound yard? Yes, apparently, under State law. Although I will definitely be checking that out.
So ... nope. I ain't buyin' it. And I'm definitely not buyin' it back.
