Gave my old van (92 Aerostar AWD) to a charity-

Nice to see it every once in a while driving around town!

The tax savings due to the write off was 4 times what the dealer would give me, and just about what it would have sold for. (and the 'tax savings due to the write off' was approx 36% of the 'retail blue book value')...

At least you got all the letters in there, it just took you two tries before you did it. :D

Donated it to a charity.

I donated my 88 Dodge van conversion to a children's charity fund on December 2000.
Then did my homework on the internet searching for SUV's with
comparisons, that's how I purchase my MDX.:)

Sold our EB Expy ...

... to Carmax and got a great deal. Simple, fast, no hassles. I was surprised to receive the offer I did.

A few years ago I donated an old Toyota Corolla SR5 to our churches benevolence fund. Although it was old, it was in super shape - I parted with it because it was a 4-seater in a 5-person family otherwise I would have loved to keep it. But the trade-in and/or wholesale value was low due its age. I felt better donating it to a worthy cause than "giving" it away at a low price.

Still Have Them

No choice for "still have the POS"?

Plan on selling privately someday but it is handy to have the old clunkers. I drive the old rig on bad weather days (short trips), towing the boat, to the hardware/lumber store and back and forth to work about 2 days a week.

Dropped collision insurance so it is cheap to insure and with all the yard projects I've had I can't do without it.

We have 4 cars at home and only 2 drivers.

Why, I am keeping my "old" car, of course!!! I am extremely attached to my '97 Integra LS Coupe because it was my first car, and an awesome one at that. When I feel like "spirited" driving, I can break out the Integra because the manual transmission is awesome! There's still nothing like the feeling of being in complete control of a car, even though my MDX is giving me a new, "I can't believe this is my car" feeling! Yeah, so now I have two cars, and no one can understand why, but I just do. What can I say, I'm an Acura lover.

errr.. I can't vote on this one...... there is no choice for my to vote.

I still keep my old car (93 maxima). I will keep it until I need to pay BIG bucks for the repair. By then, I probably will donate the car, instead of trade-in/sale.
