My car is back

It happened today, two months ago I traded my 1996 Caprice for a 1984 Corvette that I had bought new in 1983 to one of my best friends, it was an even trade no money involved. I sold my friend the Corvette for ten thousand dollars about eight years ago and told him if he ever wanted to sell it back I would buy it, so two months ago he said he was looking for a more comfortable car so I offered him my Caprice for it and he agreed to it then he put the Caprice for sale for half what I was selling the car last year, so I decided to buy it from him, now I have both cars and very happy with the deal, it is the car pictured in the avatar.

Yo. We pretty much caught on to the great news with your first version. Good karma snagging the Vette you bought new over 30 years ago! And quite the Wall Street manuever you pulled on that yours/his/your Caprice.

Now stop, you've used up your good luck for awhile eh.

When I took possession of the Corvette after eight years, I took it all apart to fix everything hat was wrong with it, my friend is not a car guy so he just put gas and drive. I told my wife " I bet the Caprice is a mess in just two months of been away" Yes, big coffee stain on the carpet, mats and part of the seats, just finished cleaning and servicing the car to put it back he way it was before
