    I bought a 2003 VW Passat with 126k miles for 700$ off of my local Craigslist. It needed some work that the dealer would of charged 2k for. I replaced the parts, had the interior steam cleaned and detailed the outside.

    I had a total of $1250.00 in the car.

    I listed it on CL 2 days ago for 4k and had no response. I dropped the price to $3900 and had tons of calls. The first person to come get it paid $3300 cash and drove it away. (I could of got more, but why wait?)

    That's $2050 profit in a little under 1 week. I also have made $150 online today! I would say it is has been a good day for sure.

    BTW: I frequently Buy & Sell stuff on Craigslist. Anything I can make some quick $$ on I will buy. Cars, boats, electronics... Shit Ill buy anything LOL.

    Here is what the car looked like when cleaned up :)

    Car repairing and selling is an old method, good thing if you have money to invest.

    Alot of people don't realize how much money there is to be made OFFline. Its not just car selling. Its everything all together. There is ALOT of money on Craigslist to be made! And you don't need alot of money to start...

    BTW: This is the lounge. If you didn't notice. There is threads about animal genitals in here... I dont see this being out of the ordinary.

    Especially with the bad economy. Any 4cyl. that has A/C under 5k will sell FAST. I am on CL all day everyday reloading. Gotta be the first one to get the good deals :D
