How much time do you estimate for your business economic recovery?
You might want to sit tight and weather the storm. The car will wait for you.

Sorry to hear about your trials - happy to hear about your addition. Yes, you'll be back - I'm in the employment business - and I've seen trying times make people much better in the long run. It tends to galvanize people and make them stronger. Hope your situation turns itself around quickly.

For the car - Pictures?, quality of interior? External and paint?- 100K on a turbo is scary - and a project turbo can scare off many - Hopefully someone on the board will step forward and help you out at a fair price.

The Rover has 160k on the clock and is worth maybe $3k the Audi is my wifes only form of reliable transportation. The Bus is not an option as it also needs work and would not exactly be great in the Michigan winter. If I don't mind my credit going straight to hell I could weather it, but I do mind. I need $ bottom line I guess.

lendaddy, October 2003 issue of Excellence Market Update for 77 930: poor $15571, good $17704, excellent $23700. That's just for reference. Subtract the cost for new headstuds (is is good practice to replace only the broken stud) + reinstalling and tuning the CIS. Also, if you sell the car as is, the buyer will have to pay for shipping or transport on a trailer.

Personally, I think you should fix the car and then sell it, but of course none of us are wearing your shoes.

I wish you the best, regardless.

Can you point us to any threads where you describe your car or show pictures? There is a large spread between perfect and poor. If you want bottom line, in the absence of information, a potential buyer must hedge on the low side.

Just my opinion.

As far as the business recovering, I have already trimmed $13k a month in fixed costs this week and am working on some new leads as well so a turnaround should be soon if I can keep the bank from shutting us down. However if any of you have family businesses you know that you can't just take funds out. Especially when back bills need to be paid up for a while after we are in the black. Lets just say that my personal income will be a "lagging indicator"

Can someone tell me how to reduce high res images to 100k or smaller so I can post some pics? I have hundreds but they are all too big.

Sorry to hear of your misfortune, you have the right attitude and keep it up. It's ironic that I have a 77' 930 silver with lobster interier. Don't let anyone ever tell you that it is orange, ( I hate that ). I wouldn't take 28k for mine, 40k orig miles, mint etc. I had a broken head stud that I had a tool manufactured for and removed and replaced the broken head stud with the heads still on the car. If you want a pic of the tool let me know. Your local machine shop can make on for about $10.00 and it worked perfect. Let me know if I can help. Good luck and always remember "things could be worse."

When faced with hard times I let my credit go to hell instead.

Even if its in pieces the 930 is still mine. Chase, citibank and fleet can wait for the money I owe them.

Being a business owner I can understand why your priorities are different than mine though.

Congrats Lendaddy, I have found things happen for a reason. This experience will no doubt benifit you, allthough sometimes it takes years to see. I hope you find a great deal on a Pcar when all is said & done. I would advertise your car for $15k obo.

Congratulations on the little one. I have a 4.5 month old little boy myself, and though it isn't easy it is so worth it. Good luck with everything.

lendaddy,

That is a tough nut to swallow but you will be fine. I am a business owner and I can relate to your situation. I hate to say it but eBay is your best friend right now. I saw the pictures, they look great. I would post the pictures, list the problems, and put it on a 7 day auction starting at $12,000. You will loose some money to eBay and perhaps PayPal but its the quickest way to increase cash flow. If you provide enough information people will probably bid quite high on it. If you get really desparate you can list your tools, TV, belly button lint, what ever you have left. It's only money, but without it things get tough.

Best wishes and good luck.
