My car is totaled

The van that thunderboy uses to get to college. After his most recent accident. I had delayed repairs from the last one so they could happen when he had Spring break. So the front end was unprotected when he rear-ended someone. There is bollock-all public transport in Detroit area thanks to car industry suppressing... Would rather trap my tits in a mangle than car shop.... I must have been really fucking evil in a former life

Do you have somebody who can do it for you and just go along as a friend of the sham buyer?

Well, shit.

Look in the back rows at the cheaper used car lots. Pay a mechanic you trust to look at it before you buy.

Sorry, that's all I got. Except, don't buy a used car you're not prepared to throw another $1000 at after you buy it. One of mine own rules.

Ok home now (dealing with this shit was not very helpful in my "getting the fuck away from it all...... notably widowhood, job loss and ASSHOLE SON.... [return date dictated by taking the little shit to court tomorrow for an informal hearing about a 3-point speeding ticket acquired the first day after the last crash.....])... breathe... breathe....

I need to buy a car that is built like a tank filled with bubble wrap (thank goodness this one was or he'd be so dead), cannot go very fast (Dodge Grand Caravans are nippier than they look) and is cheap as chips to insure. His unbelievable number of points wracked up over the 6 months he's been driving to college means he will have to drop out of college if I can't help him rein it in some way. Also I won't be able to afford him on my insurance. What with no job and all....

One solution: A less than 50cc scooter. In KY, no license, tags, or insurance required. Yet.

YMMV

In MI under 50cc has to be registered and valid drivers licence. But the electrics rules are looser.
