Trying to keep a long story short, we live in a rural area where a car is needed. We can not afford to eat and now have no car to go to food banks or take senior citizens to the doctors. We had a perfectly good car we were forced to get rid of because they do not want people to have 15+ year old cars anymore in this area.
So the senior citizen of the family takes out a loan to get a used car. Rock bottom price in this area is $5000. Car dies one week later. It is at a garage right now but we have no way of getting around $500 for the repairs.
Disabled member of the family is willing to sell their Playstation 3 all games and accessories but we can not fork out the ridiculous price to place an ad in our newspaper, so who will know I am trying to sell what little I have? Neither of us can walk to a store. We are house bound without a vehicle.
