Like a lot of people I have struggled with the recent economic depression. My industry contracted and I was forced out of work for a long time, I worked any job I could find, truck driver, warehouse, temporary, anything to keep a roof over my families head. I am now working back in my field again, but due to a large amount of past due bills and until recently an income in flux I have lost a car to reposession. I currently drive a 20 year old Jeep whose front end has gone bad and will cost at least $1,600 to replace. With 200,000 miles on it, that won't be the last part to break. It has no air conditioning (I live in florida), 1 window is broke the tailgate doesn't lift and it needs a major tune up, alignment, tires, brakes, a transmission tune up, heck even the headliner is falling.
Now the car that got repossed (a 10 year old Hyundai) wasnt the best car, but it was realiable transportation. I don't have the credit anymore to get funding for a replacement and need something reliable to get to my job. Because I'm stuck using cash and need a car that will last I'm looking for 10,000.00
I work hard now and I am struggling mightily to payoff bad debts and get my credit in line, but I need some help before the Jeep give up its ghost. Thank you in advance for your generosity, your gift is helping me keep a job and support my family.
