I feel like a used car lot...

Ok all...I normally don't post "non-weightloss" things on my blog, but I am extending an olive branch to all of you to keep an ear out for someone who may be interested in one of three cars I have for sale.

Because my husbands business no longer needs these cars we now have 4 vehicles and four car payments.

We need to sell 2 cars- one of the Escapes, and the truck to get us back down to our two car household.

Here is what I have for sale. The picture shown above is my car. It is probably the Escape that has the best chance of selling because of the price. I love my car and there is nothing wrong with it.

Here are the specs on it:
2008 Ford Escape XLT FWD 4 cylinder automatic

Exterior is Lt. Sage Clearcoat (though it really looks like a goldish-khaki)
Interior is Stone Premium Cloth Bucket Seats

103" Wheelbase
DURATEC 2.3L I4 Engine
4-speed automatic O/D transmission

16" aluminum wheels
Front fog lamps
Privacy glass
Liftgate with flip up glass

Front cloth bucket seats

Fuel Economy Estimates
20 mpg City, 26 mpg Highway


An excellent car. Mostly city driving. This has been a personal, not company vehicle and well cared for.

Asking $12,300 and has about 54,000 miles on it.

Nothing wrong with car. Couldn't get additional pictures because of my husbands car parked next to it.
No dents, scratches, or rust.

Another car we have for sale is:

2009 Ford Escape XLT SUV V6 Engine
(I dont have all the details listed on this one like mine because I dont have the car or the window sticker currently. The car is sitting in a friends barn in storage. I should be getting it back tomorrow to take a picture of it). I am sure it is very similar to mine as far as what the standards are.

Sterling gray clear coat metallic
Approx 55,000 miles.

Options included:
Power steering, power locks, 6 way power driver seat, CD player, A/C, cruise control, driver and passenger air bag, power exterior mirrors, reclining seat, electronic traction control, power brakes, power windows, radio, radial all season tires, tilt steering wheel, tinted glass, bucket seats, sunroof, sync, clock, rear window defroster, front side air bags, cloth seats, fog lights, alloy wheels, interval wipers, dual speed rear window wiper, fold down rear seats, luggage rack, ABS

This was an occasional driver vehicle for office personnel. Very clean.
Asking $17,100 

And Finally:

2007 F-150 Regular Cab, 4x2 style with extended bed.
Silver color
Approx 40,000 miles.

Power steering, CD player, A/C, cruise control, cloth seats with hard vinyl floor. Includes after market truck bed tool box and plastic bed liner.

Perfect vehicle for your company.
Currently has logo on the sides of the truck but can be easily removed. Logo was done by Fast Signs. Logo can be removed with a hair dryer and can be done by current owner before new owner take possession.

There is a small dent on the suicide door passenger side at the bottom. Probably from driving on construction job site. Nothing major.

 This truck is in great shape. Mainly city driving going back and forth to job sites. Was used by construction Foreman so was parked all day at job sites.

Asking 13,400 including the tool box.

I already have the cars and truck listed on Craigslist but thought my blog might be a way to get a wider audience.

Unfortunately, we cannot trade them in to a dealership and they will not outright buy them.

Please say some prayers that we can sell two of these vehicles!!

Thanks everyone!!!


  1. WOW! All those car payments would freak my husband (and me) out. We take our tax return and buy used, so we don't have another bill and our insurance stays the same. But when you have a business, I understand needing the vehicles. We've actually been car shopping through our cable company. They have a channel devoted to it, but I'm not sure if that's for dealers only. Do you have that opportunity there? That could be an option. Good luck!

    1. We dont have that opportunity here unfortunately. I think if we get some flyers made, Aaron can take them with him to the Nuclear Plant in Alabama. If anything is going to sell, they will usually sell there (hopefully).
