How not to buy a car

Published by in Car buying ·

The old cart was looking worn out - like the horse as well.  And Granddad wasn't looking to great either, although he blamed grandma's borscht for that.  Anyways, Igor (owner of the famous Vodka Emporium) suggested that he could trade in his old cart for a new one and use the horse as a deposit. That would mean he would need to buy another horse of course, but how long can the horse keep going?   And what would happen if the wheels fell off the cart, or the rails broke and a supply of beetroot fell off?  Igor said he had a great friend who would do Granddad a good deal if he mentioned Igor's name.  Igor's friend suggested to Granddad that if he only paid twelve kopeks a month he could have the latest cart, and for twenty-four roubles a horse as well. And he could keep them for four years!  What happens after four years, enquired Granddad.  'I get them all back! Isn't that a great way to get a horse and cart?' said Igor's pal. 'So cheap! And if you want to keep them, you can buy them from me at a reduced price. How about it?'

Granddad thought about it. Then decided.  Better the horse and cart you don't have to give back to anyone. Igor didn't get his commission from his pal.
