:plac: finds v2.0: Moar gold on the crangslist

I hate them too. 3/5 have been ok. And I went to 2 buy here pay here lots because I’m poor. And they were completely fine. The worst was when I test drove a new JL 2 door that had a 4K mark up and 4 middle Eastern dudes tried to gang up on me to “give me a deal today” In my experience about 50% of ...

:plac: finds v2.0: Moar gold on the crangslist

Bleh. My brother has one. Feels mediocre in every way. Hard pass EDIT: Rav4 that is. Yeah. The advantage here is it'll need nothing at all for about 8 years. I'd like a current gen RDX but they're around $40k still.... too much to bash up on the street. I just gotta get out and test drive things. Y...

A mail box which is actually needed for most households is far more likely to be stolen than some POS plastic block in the middle of the road. I have literally 0 doubt that it will remain as is. And if you live somewhere where you fear of someone stealing your mailbox you have bigger issues than dr...

Updates! Updates are fun. Chemical plant ghosted me. One phone call after the new year went very well, but radio silence now. Oh well I guess.

Maybe it's worth just :troywax: on the $33K vehicle in that case... I mean, you won't find much else like it, should be pretty depreciation resistant, nothing like that will ever exist again.

Currently my favorite is the Dogshit one with the blown clutch at 18k.. I can probably deep clean the interior and get the clutch done for 1k... but I would need 3k off that thing. And there is no way the middle eastern saleshole will do it because "the clutch is fine" I would probably get that one...
