    than the condition of bluebook.  Pictures, accurate mileage, even asking prices from the paper or intertubes, etc.

      Especially my mother's car which was only 4 years old and had almost 125K miles on it.  The only one that was probably worth the book value was my father's.

      I must end each and every day with a dose of a regularly scheduled Top Comments. A regularly scheduled Top Comments diary is a must for developing the calmness I need to get the required eight hours of sleep. - cohenzee

      without any proof.  They offered $6400 in a total, I said I kept this car maintained to the letter of the manufacturer's recommendations, I have repair records to can prove it.  They didn't even ask to see them, they just upped their offer another $700 and called it "excellent mechanical condition."
