Cash… Or a Dodge.
For all those doubters of the future of Chrysler / Dodge, you need not worry. Some may think that children are the greatest gift, for others it’s just a stepping stone, a down-payment if you will to a previously loved Dodge Intrepid.

Nicole Uribe, 23, is accused of trading the baby to Jose-Juan Lerma, 47, and his wife, Irene, 27, in exchange for the down payment and an unspecified amount of cash.

Just to make the soup a little spicier…

Wilson said all three were Mexican nationals and federal officials had been asked to investigate their immigration status.

What would you trade your 5 month old for?

    I would’ve traded one of my 5 month olds for a full night of sleep. Or a weekend away with my wife. But, that’s what mothers-in-law are for.

  2. maria says:

    Does not seem to be a good trade to me.

  3. tallwookie says:

    yeah, the car-dealership got totally ripped off – on the other hand, they now have a screaming mexican to deal with

    Who are we to judge the customs and moral systems of another culture 😉

  5. Osmodious says:

    This happens occasionally, even around here (East Coast). I remember hearing about one about a decade ago or so…at least those people traded the kid for a Corvette.

  6. Mister Justin says:

    You crazy? The seller got cheap labour. Just think of the maintenance on that Dodge!

  7. Marcelo (Brazil) says:

    Nah, Pedro, Latin American family values would be to trade the mother-in-law.

  8. Noam Sane says:

    Based on what I went through getting my 5-year-old dressed and ready for pre-school this morning, I’d make a deal for an AMC Hornet tomorrow.

    What would you do for a klondike bar???

    Hey… We live in America… Let the market decide!

    #11 – Wow, Pedro, that’s an abuse I never thought of. I’ve seen a lot of small children performing some pretty impressive stunts at the US-Mexico border crossing in Tijuana. One little boy in particular was balancing on one foot atop a, oh, 3-foot lane separation pole juggling four or five little brightly colored balls while a girl about the same size (we assumed his sister) collected busker donations. We happily dropped a couple bucks in the girl’s hat. It was quite entertaining.

    It never occurred to us that these kids might have been rented out to whoever controls the very lucrative vendor spots by the long, slow approach to the U.S. border. But it makes an ugly kind of sense.

    I dunno – Bring me the keys and title to a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 and I’ll bring you the Christ Child Hisself…

  13. Thats easy For a Booth Babe!
