I didn't see a topic for the following: Buying the $1000 car.
Specifically, what are the things to look for when in the market for a true beater: something with a ~ $1000 price tag where the expectation is that it doesn't necessarily even need to last very long.

That is an excellent idea for a new discussion, sphinx99. I just did a little searching through the archives for the Smart Shoppers Message Board and came across the following two discussions on this subject Good "beaters" and Beater cars: how do you find one?. We should be able to merge these into one larger discussion and bring them back to life. I will mention your idea to Town Hall management right away.
Thanks and keep the ideas coming.

#5 of 493 How to sell your used vehicle
Dec 17, 2003 (3:43 pm)
I'm not goping to get anything near what I need for my 96 Integra on trade in. So how about a discussion on best ways to sell it. Advertising, how to deal with paperwork, financing, etc.
#7 of 493 Buying a used truck in CA and driving it to NY
Dec 23, 2003 (8:42 am)
Hi: I live in New York, but I'm thinking about buying a used truck from a dealer in California and driving it back to NY.
I'm curious as to what is involved in doing that, from a registration, insurance, and licensing issue?
Ideally I want to walk in, find what I want, buy it, and drive it home. Is it possible to do that, or would I need to wait to get a temporary registration for NY State after the sale?
If anyone has had a similar experience, I'd love to know what was involved.

It is quite common to buy in one state and register in another. Normally you just get a temporary transport tag from the state you buy it any (30 days usually), and register it in your home state.
Some dealers can do the DMV work for multiple states, but usually when they are close by, so I don't think it applies in your case!
