    Had to sell my Bird

    I sold my car. I ended up owing taxes again this year, and my mortgage company screwed me for the last 2 years in the manner of telling me I was not subject to a tax that I was subeject to. I found out that I am in the city limits by a couple feet unfortunately. I ended up owing alot of money all at once, so I put the GTO and the bird up for sale. The bird sold right away at my asking price. It went to someone I know will take care of it so I guess its not too bad. This sucks but it was inevitable. The GTO was for sale for a month and no one wanted it so I am lucky that the WS6 sold as soon as it did. I look at it that I will be able to get something better soon so its not all bad. It sucked watching it drive away.

    wooddaniel, the reason it slips through is because people are stupid and dont look at what they are voting for.

    The bike selling thing has hurt me pretty bad too. I was a 4k a year rider in the summer and its giving me fits not having one. Especially when my father parks his VTX 1800 in my garage and he has put 1,100 miles on it in 3 years! If he doesnt ride it I will....lol

    Again, I feel for you man. It sucks bad.

    Economy sucks. We all make sacrifices, some big some small but the all are tough.

    I dont know if you know this man but property taxes almost always go up. If you home value drops it is rare that your taxes will also drop.

    I know, it's the fire tax from last year and another fee that got passed that made it go up even more than usual.

    If I had done that my mortgage would have gone up 400 a month for a year. I got a good price for my car and was able to pay em all at once plus pay off a credit card. It was the responsible thing to do.
