Dec 28, 2012:
Dad tells me about his friend who wants to buy a new car. I said, 'Why doesn't he just buy a Toyota Camry or something?' So, I went to the internet and ran a search for cars in the region up to a certain dollar amount. The first result that came up was a Toyota Camry which looked like it fitted the bill.
Dad tells his friend about it, who rings the seller up on the phone, only to find out that they are currently driving from Dunedin to Alexandra - a 2 hour drive - and can bring the car right to his doorstep! He looks at the car and thinks it's a good offer, and with a towbar.
Later that day he tells his son and daughter in-law about it, only to find out that they will be upgrading their car and were planning on giving him their old Toyota Camry for free! So, in the end, he got a Toyota Camry for free!
