Despite being extremely cheap, the car was still priced higher than the boy's budget. So, to conclude the bargain, the teenager proposed a one-of-a-kind exchange: his Xbox in part exchange as the final balance for the price of the car! At first the seller, after the strange proposal, was a little incredulous, but after a few minutes she called the boy back: she had second thoughts.
