High school teacher needs a break! I have no car now, so I can't rush right over, and the good ones disappear so quickly. (I've been too late for 3 so far.) I'm celebrating 2+ years sober and want to treat myself to an excellent gift. 59 y.o. acoustic folk singer/songwriter, love camping. The E will have a good home with me. Year/color not too important. Willing to pay for quality and low miles. Cash, around $8k max? Willing to take Amtrak north along the coast a bit. Thanks. Steven

Nice find YogiBare! Looks really clean and great condition.

With the high prices of used cars in general these days, you got a really good deal! :)

Nice find! May I ask how where you found that?

I’ve been looking myself for about a month now, but because I’m located in the NE, I haven’t had as much luck with used vehicle conditions. I’ve been looking nationwide on Craigslist and Facebook, but finding a seller with a good price willing to wait for an out of state arrival is a tad difficult.

That's a beautiful looking Element, and a great price! There is a posting dated September 17 in the Facebook Honda Element Group which has plans for a very nice platform bed frame made of 1.5" PVC. The post was by Jessee Wright and he posted pictures and a link to plans that are contained in a 16 page pdf file. Here are some photos he posted and a link to the facebook post and to the pdf plans. . Facebook Groups

I'm a "new age" metaphysical guy from way back, started meditating and visualizing the exact car I wanted, even ranking the colors in my mind. Searching Craigslist, found it 120 miles away from me (about 30 minutes after it was posted on a Friday night). It was the exact one, down to the Tango Red and the tow package that I hadn't even thought of. I pleaded my case why I should have first shot (furloughed high school French teacher with no car, etc), he held it until I could get there on Amtrak Monday morning. More than 'luck.'
