A Car to Move Forward
Organized by: Terri Trambly
I am 50. I was finally released out of an emotionally abusive relationship. My daughter, working 2 jobs made a way for me to live with her. Now our only car that drives her and her fiancé to work needs a fuel pump. We can do that. However, I need a job and we need a 2nd car. She works overnight and there’s not much bus service where she works. There is where her fiancé’ works, but the job I want? It REQUIRES I have my own car. We cannot go 3 different directions all of us with only 2 cars. The old car also needs calipers and new tires. Oh yes the steel is showing through the tread. Ah and it needs the headlight fixed again. Anyway, the car we want is $2000 down. However, we need to pay to put it on full coverage insurance until my job begins and I take it over. Thus the $3000. I have to add 2 drivers one 20 and one 19. You all who have done this know how expensive it is. By the time I’m done with down payment, insurance and repairs, it I get a pay day installment loan by the time we paid it off and started paying the car off it would be repossessed. This car will mean us getting the hand up we really need so I can get on my own two feet and help my child who has scarified to much to save me. I wish I had the means to help her now. I don’t. I don’t want to sound like some beggar, but I don’t know what else to do or where to turn. I don’t have family who can help with this. Much of mine have passed on. Please Abba, send us someone to help. I don’t want to go into more debt to do what we need to get done.
