Remember the other day when I said I was 99.9% sure that I’d purchased a new vehicle??
Well, the 0.1% reared it’s ugly head.
I’d had the vehicle checked out – seemed OK. I’d arranged the money – all went OK.
My final check today was to get a Vehicle Information Package from VicRoads (i.e. Dept of Transport) and check that there were no financial incumbrances on the car.
Luckily for me, the VIP also includes lots of other little tidbits of information, such as THE FACT THAT THE 1999 9-3 VIGGEN I’VE BEEN DREAMING ABOUT FOR THE LAST 3 DAYS HAS BEEN PREVIOUSLY ENTERED ONTO THE “WRITTEN OFF VEHICLES REGISTER”!!!!!!
Talk about pissed off. I’m fuming!
Here’s it is…..
Looks nice, but apparently not so. It might be a really good repair job. It LOOKS like a really good repair job, but a previously written off vehicle is not what I’m looking for when extending my mortgage to buy a car.
I should be happy: I just spent $23 to save $23,000. Somehow the happiness just hasn’t sunk in yet though.
