    Verbal Agreement on car sale- Buyer not paying

    I sold a car on March 09' for $1,000, which was a good deal for him. It was a verbal agreement (stupid I know) because he was close to me. Since then, all I've seen is $40. The original agreement was $150 every two weeks. He can't do that. He traded in the car I sold him for a new car. So I then told him $75 a month which he still can't do. I'd like to take him to court and want to know if I have a case. If I can't win, I'd still like to have him end up with less money from court fees. Basically if I'm out the money, I'd still like to have him ruined somehow.

    I'd sue him in small claims court. Send him a letter first with a demand for the money pursuant to the agreement.
