Your Turn: A Classfied Ad from…My Roommate


All photos by Melodie Neff

UPDATE: The subject of this piece reports that the vehicle pictured above was sold shortly after publication. You may read onward…thank you!

Normally, V&R does not accept advertising on its editorial pages. It keeps a neutral ground when presented a chance to market something. However, this is a special situation.

My roommate, Melodie Neff, is selling her old car – a 2003 Chevrolet Impala LS. She recently purchased a 2011 BMW 328i 4-door with xDrive (an E90, that is) as a fine compliment to her career as a employment recruiter and master networker. The Impala served her well for these past nine years (she's the original owner – a North Dakota car that has been garaged 100% of the time) and it was time to move forward – and upward.

As a service to Melodie, I am putting out the word on her Impala. Without further ado…here's Melodie!

As many of you have seen on Facebook I have taken the new car plunge and have joined the BMW family. I'm selling my 2003 Chevy Impala and I ask that you please spread the word to anyone in your network who may be looking. Below are the details and attached are the photos. Any interested party can contact me directly [see below for contact information]. Thanks in advance for your help.

If you live outside of the Twin Cities, please make sure that you are able to take delivery of the vehicle in this area.
