Isn't it dangerous when the wheels fall off?Many years ago my brother bought his first car: a 12th hand Jaguar. The car had a number of problems with it, but it was his car and he just kept paying the bills for repairs and work.A few months later my mother bought a new car and sent the old car, a Ford Galaxy, to auction. When my brother arrived home for Thanksgiving with a car that still needed a good deal of work, there was a long discussion, the result of which was that he and my father drove to the auction site, swapped the Galaxy for the Jaguar, and my brother now had a working car that wasn't as cool as the previous one.The next week my parents got a phone call. The Jaguar couldn't be driven after being sold, so it was being towed, and a wheel fell off.The trick is to get rid of the car just before the wheels fall off.NancyNo, I don't know why it went to auction, but it was probably because the new car was bought through Avis, where my father worked, rather than through a dealer.
