The Story



Intro

I need a solid means of transportation that I can use for my daily commute, but interest rates on car loans are making the purchase a little outside of my budget.

That’s why I’m asking people I know to help me finance a used, but reliable vehicle so I can keep getting to work on time and take some weekend road trips.



Lessons Learned

Let me begin by admitting that I was warned (repeatedly, and at every step in the process) against buying a used Swedish import. But I really wanted one. It was cheap, it had lots of cool features, and I assumed, for some reason, that everything would be fine.

It is not fine. Every other month a new sensor or something goes out, and in addition to having to buy the new part, I also pay however much it takes to get the car to someone who can install the new piece in the first place.

Do you know how many places there are in this town that can fix Swedish imports? I do: there aren’t any. I have to tow this thing about fifty miles into the middle of nowhere to find one guy with a backlog of like 50 other cars he’s already working on, and it takes him over a week to finally get to mine. 

The point is that I recently found a new job somewhere downtown, but if I’m going to keep working it, I need a more reliable source of transportation.



My Request

Unfortunately, new and used cars can be pricey. If I’m ever going to get a vehicle that can help me get where I need to go on time, I need the support of my friends, family, and community. 

But I’m not asking you for a donation; I’m asking for a loan.



I’m not looking for much; just something that can get me from Point A to Point B. Preferably something with crank windows, non-electric mirror adjustment, and as few mysterious “sensors” as possible. Honestly, I’d take a horse and buggy at this point, if I could find one.

If you're convinced that this is a good idea for me, I’d love to have your contribution to my campaign. The best part is, I’ll pay you this money back over the next few years.
