Default Getting rid of broken cars....

Want to buy this nice Firebird down the street, Dad said I can after I sell my truck and my thunderbird. The truck is fine, do dealerships normally buy cars if I dont plan to buy from them? Any advice to get the most $ out of the car? And my thunderbird is broken, transmission is pretty much shot, other than that pretty good shape, glossy paint, any way to get rid of it at a decent price?

Thanks,
Tommy

Sometimes some dealers will sell on consignment. Usually not the big manufacturers. You would have to check and see what the terms would be. Typically they will not just outright buy a car off of you. Do like Jim and Tammy said. Autotrader or local paper is best bet.

I usually donate my dead cars to the rescue mission and take the tax write off.
