What happens to money? I drive a big truck and am looking to buy an economic car to drive back and forth to work. I have my dad's vehicle and pay the insurance on it and drive it back and forth to work but it is also a gas guzzler. He wants to sell me his truck for a couple hundred dollars so I can get it in my name and then take the truck and trade it in on a economy car. Is this possible and can he keep the money in his account or does it have to go to the nursing home since it's an asset?
