Sold the LeBaron’s remains

Just got finished selling the LeBaron’s remains. I called Pick a Part and they offered me $150 cash for the car. That’s a fairly low amount, based on what still worked, but whatever. It was $150 and the scrap would be out of my driveway.

So they sent out a tow truck to pick it up. The driver looks at it and tells me that he’s going to have to offer me $100 for it, since it’s in “such bad shape”. This smelled odd to me. I mean, yeah, part of the car is ruined. They’re a scrap yard though. They buy and sell scrap cars. It’s what they do. Anyway, sparing you my suspicious side’s theories about how many people get talked down once the tow truck is here, I ended up talking him into $120.

I wonder if *anyone* gets the full value they offer on the phone?
