This is my brother in-laws car until his unexpected death. My sister-in-law is moving back to Ontario,this weekend with their kids, and she doesn't drive. She's been trying to sell it with no luck. Wreckers don't want to giver her anything for it. It has over 300k but was well maintained. Runs fine but it'll need a boost.

Like Woody's dog, my furry kids would love it, and that looks way to nice for the scrappers. 
Alabama is a really long way away, though. Anyone up there coming all the way to the challenge?  And has room!

If she is flying out of Abbotsford or Vancouver, she could have someone drive it to Empire Auto Wrecking in Abbotsford. They will pay her cash. I think it's $200.00 which is not much, but it will buy most of one airfare. Empire is maybe ten minutes from Abbotsford Airport.

I am sorry for your loss.  My son just graduated from university and is starting work in Vancouver. I sent it to him but he won't be back till Monday night.

To clarify. The car can be driven but the registration has expired. My sister-in-law doesn't drive therefore can't take it to a scrapper. She had a person coming to pick it up but they evaporated at the last minute.

I spoke with my son and he said he would like it.  He will be home Monday.  If it needs to go before then he said he could have a friend pick it up.

I prefer to think of it as 108 miles up the Fraser from Lillooet.

So CDowds son had to back out . This means the car is still available. The transfer portion of the ownership has been signed and is in the glovebox along with the keys.  The summer tires, on factory aluminum rims, are in the trunk.

 As my brother in-law was a Volvo fanatic so I'd really prefer that this car goes to someone who'll use it rather than the wrecker.
