Finally donated the POS C240. It was picked up early today. I thought I had a better photo of it, but it was a POS so screw it.

The biggest hang-up was the State of Indiana. Indiana has a weird way of assigning identification for companies, corporations, etc., when it comes to tax revenue. Long story short, my personal SSN is very similar to the state tax ID of a company with unpaid taxes (there are several hundred people that go through this same b.s.). With Covid-19, it took almost 2 months to get everything in order for the state to remove a tax lien from the title.

Yes, it ran and drove but I had no desire to sell it. Mainly due to the fact that the very few that showed interest could wrench no better than me. One was a neighbor, and there was no way in hell I was going to deal with a disappointed neighbor, to put it mildly, for $500. The amount of work needed would be 3x what it’s worth (full brake job, trans flush and fill, broken rear coil springs...at least, 2 bent aluminum rims, 4 wheel alignment, new battery, scheduled service A...or was it B...or both?).

And before the “buts”* come out, I really wanted to donate it. It’s going to my local PBS/NPR station, so I’ll be able to write it off.
