PLAYGIRL MADE A KILLING WITH AN OLD KARMANN-GHIA

Haaaaa! I made a killing!

Three months ago, I bought this old 1966 Volkswagen Karmann-Ghia
that runs perfectly, for a mere $300.00, then turned around and sold
it for $4,500.00 to a guy in California! He plans on doing a complete
renovation to get it into mint condition.


Had it been in just a little bit better condition,
I could have sold it for what this guy is selling
his. $8,500.00. Anyway, I can't complain, can I?!

PLAYGIRL'S BUSINESS QUOTE FOR TODAY:
"The fastest way to succeed is to look
as if you're playing by somebody else's
rules, while quietly playing by your own."
- Michael Korda

"I buy when other people are selling."
- J. Paul Getty

"I rate enthusiasm even above professional skill.
- Edward Appleton

Business, more than any other occupation,
is a continual dealing with the future;
it is a continual calculation, an
instinctive exercise in foresight."
- Henry R. Luce

"I am continuously changing. I am not today
who I was yesterday, nor will I be tomorrow
that that I am today. There is NO "in between"
apparatus to my personality."
- Playgirl

Thanks!

I thought I'd thrown $300.00 down the drain because I had the car just sitting in my backyard for 3 whole months. Finally, one of my brother's put an ad in the newspaper in California, and sold it immediately.

That my dear young friend is what eBay is for. I sell every day on it and once in awhile make a tonne of money just like you did.

Love to hear when someone makes a small boodle on a deal...

A person makes their own luck. You done well...grin...

One of my many motto's is:
Seek and ye shall find a BUYER!

So then ebay's worth it?
I'll have to try eBay someday.

I'm becoming more and more of a scavenger, and I love it! haaaa
Hugs and smooches Sweety Pie!

I think so, too.

I knew those cars were very much sought after by people in CA.
I did start to worry there for a while, but thank goodness I
was able to sell it.
Hugs and smooches!
