Habitat for Humanity Car Donation Feature
1986 Alfa Romeo Graduate
The latest featured Habitat for Humanity car donation in the spotlight here is a 1986 Alfa Romeo Graduate. When you think about donating a car you may not realize there are some pretty special antique and exotic vehicles donated.
When you donate a car to charity you are usually contributing to the auto recycling industry – one of the largest industries in the U.S. More than 80% of a car is recycled or reused so most most car donations impact the environment in a positive way. If that wasn’t reason enough to consider donating a car you are also contributing to an amazing non-profit!
Another throwback to a car you may have ridden in with your dad or grandpa when you were a kid. This time we had a 1976 Lincoln Continental Mark IV donated to Habitat for Humanity of Western Wayne County, Michigan.
An old, yellow VW Bug convertible was recently donated to Habitat for Humanity. This car donation is for the donor’s local habitat in Honolulu, Hawaii. The generous donor purchased the 1975 Volkswagen Beetle after her last child left for college. She lovingly named her car ‘Baby’.
The first quarter of 2017 has seen average used car market prices soften and continue to drop both month to month as well as year over year. In fact “Auto Remarketing Magazine” stated in their April 1st Issue that it was just the 2nd time in the last 20 years that used car prices declined in the month of February.
The decline was counter to the 1-percent increase expected for the month and marked just the second time in the past 20 years prices fell in February. -Auto Remarketing Magazine
