Why not,if the price was right. In 1979, I received a phone call from my car dealer, who was also a friend. This dealership was an Ldsmobile dealer, and I was driving a one year old Olds "98". The dealer asked me to come to his shop, as he wanted to show me a car. I told him I was not interested, but he insisted. When I went to the back of his shop, there sat a beautiful two tone grey 1979 Buick Riviera. These Riviera's were a new style, and was the car of the year and I loved it. The car had a little over a thousand miles on it. I asked why the owner traded it, and was told that he did not like it
I then asked the price, and gasped when he told me. It was a deal too good to be true. I pressed him on the reasons and finally got the answer, The owner was a wise guy, had just ulled up in front of his apartment building, when a man with a shotgun fired through the passenger window at him. I do not know how many shots were fired, but the car's owner, wounded, got out and started to run. The assassin then shot him on the street and he died.
The car was taken to my friend's dealership, where the front seat and carpet were replaced, and the leather on the driver's door was repaired. I bought the car and drove it for 4 years, putting a hundred thousand miles on it.
So if I needed an apartment, and the price was very attractive, of course I would live in it.
