So here's the situation. Last month my company filed for chapter 7 out of the blue and I'm on the job hunt, and my savings has taken a hit. I just got the call from Autostrada today that my car has arrived. This sucks for me because last I heard it was probably going to be November or December.
I had already arranged financing for a certain amount. If I were to accept the car right now, I would have enough to pay the bills for the remainder of the month, but next month would be probably be impossible. However I think I'm really close to having another job so it might work out.
I told Autostrada the situation and told them I'd call them back in a couple days. So what would you do?
Here's what I'm contemplating
- Calling my financier (Capitol One) and bump up my loan amount by 5k. But I don't know if they would re-check the current employment etc. This would give me at least some short-term flexibility.
- Hold off on buying the car as long possible.. I think Autostrada would hold it for at least a couple weeks. Maybe to the end of the month. But then what? Eat the deposit? Ask to be moved to the next order group? Who knows when I'd get my car then. Probably never.
- I think buying it, then selling it sucks for multiple reasons. First, there's no guarantee that I could get enough for it. Secondly.. I WANT THE CAR. If I flipped it.. then I'd have to get at the end of a list somewhere. OMFG! I might as well not get it at that point.
- Maybe knocking over a liquor store for the mortgage payment would work?
- Any other ideas?
