Well that's what we thought at first, but now we noticed a lot of the receipts show repairs being made in like '03 and '04. And they never drove it, it just sat in the driveway with a cover on it in the hot and humid Hawaii for 5 years. We do think the guy was just fixing minor shit though, there were much bigger problems, but they weren't specific in what they wanted fixed, so he just did what he saw.

And the Mechanic was mostly likely Hawaiian, so you can't really expect much. Razz

How much have the repairs cost you?

A couple hundred in repairs alone. And we did all the work.

And a couple hundred more for registration, insurance start-up, shipping, etc.

So at least a $1,000+ has been put into this car to just get it to be drivable. Beginning to become a major pain in the ass. But hopefully this will be the last big repair, everything else will just be for comfort.

Is that all out of your pocket? Still, that $1k is less than the value of the car, no? And you would never have gotten a nearly decent car for the amount you've paid for repairs and shit on this one... so I'd say you're still up some.

Nah, only about $500 is comin' out of my pocket. And yeah, I agree, it is a lot cheaper, but when you think about how long I've had it and all the work that we've had to do on it, you would see how maybe paying $3,000 for another used car would save a lot of time and hassle. Not to mention it's a lot easier to repair a Civic versus an old luxury car. These parts cost more and are a lot harder to find. And the problem I'm having right now with the Fuel Pressure Regulator isn't even existent in most modern cars because it's done electronically now from what I understand. And it's less economical, it's not bad, it's not like driving a truck (surprisingly, even though it's a V8), but it's no Civic.

There are a lot of trade offs. Don't get me wrong, it's a pretty sick car, I do plan to keep this one a while, but I will ultimately be looking for a Classic Benz guy who will take it off my hands for a good amount so he can use it for parts or w/e. Best way I'm probably gonna get anything for it. I've seen some mint ones selling on the street for around $5,500 and mine is nowhere near that condition.

You'll be able to find someone who will take that car for 2,000-3,000 dollars, i think.

Yes, I just didn't understand what he meant. The post was quite cryptic, but after a second pass I'm assuming he meant the car was like a CRUSHED soda can, after he got in the accident.

Back on topic.

Why is it so hard to check this at least once daily? I check several times a day, each time not even taking a single min.

I think of stuff all the time I would like to post on here, but then I start thinkin' about it and who the fuck is even looking?

It's not hard, doesn't take long, and I know a good amount of you are just at home diddlin' your vaginas.

We need more steady contributors.

Lies, It's actually about getting people to post on the forums again, and these broads have always had a no derailed thread unless the OP is cool with how it derailed.
