[QUOTE=>VLN<;34470680]I'm looking for my first car, and why are there so many freaking Mercedes from '83-00? They are so cheap as well! What the hell is wrong with all of them?[/QUOTE] Probably maintenance is a bitch, get a volvo. That is probably why all the BMW 7 Series here are like 2 grand, because maintenance for a year will be double what the car is worth.
[QUOTE=NuclearAnnhilation;34471480]Well my mustang will be on hiatus. I got a D in math so that means I commited genocide. I have to wait even longer and let that sweet orange one go.[/QUOTE] Dude, that's nothing. Apparently wanting to go to a city over to buy a 1989 car is committing genocide. My friend who wants to come with me is apparently now a fucking idiot who didn't buy his own car, I'm getting scammed (I'm just going to look at it) and apparently any car older than the one I'm driving is automatically worse and that I'm spending all of my money to go look at this car (It's $25 for walk-on round-trip ROFL). My mom makes so much sense :derp: I admit the car is a little overpriced but is [url]http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/van/cto/2820176224.html[/url] worth $500? I don't think so. Plus I talked him down to $3500
[QUOTE=Tukimoshi;34465870]Unfortunately, I live in an area where cars are really expensive. There's a perfectly clean KA 240SX up here in Victoria right now for $5200. The cheapest Skyline I've ever seen around here was $6000. Cars are not cheap here. As a benefit, my truck is worth more than it would be elsewhere, but it also means popular cars are very steeply priced. It's mostly because I live in a very tourist-y areas so not many cars are for sale, which makes nice cars even rarer, thus making the price go up.[/QUOTE] $6000 for a skyline of any form? Expensive? What fucking planet are you from, that's cheap as FUCK.
[QUOTE=bradley;34473330]$6000 for a skyline of any form? Expensive? What fucking planet are you from, that's cheap as FUCK.[/QUOTE] [URL]http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/pml/cto/2813372987.html[/URL] There's one for $5300. All the nice ones are in the 12k-25k range though. And yeah, I admit that 6k is cheap for a Skyline but all the 240SXs here are bone-stock KA automatics for 3k+, the only AE86 in the area is riced to hell and is also $3k and most of the late 90s Golfs here are $4000-$6000. A 1990 CRX in Good Condition is $5000.
[QUOTE=usaokay;34467793]Since that accident, I'm wondering what's the best recording tool to set up in the car while I'm driving.[/QUOTE] I spent £5 on a dashboard mount for my phone which came with an in-car charger then downloaded a cheap app which records on a 10 minute loop. If you've got a phone with a decent camera then that's a good bet. Only trouble is that I don't record for the purpose of a crash, more when going out for a good drive so there's a chance I might film me stuffing it into a ditch, if I do then I'll share it with you lot for a laugh, have had a couple of hairy moments but I didn't have the dashmount back then :v:

Fox body mustang convertibles are bitch cars..... Ugh.... Seriously man, I love foxes, but what the fuck is up with you and verts.
I like convertibles :v:
Convertibles are cool and all, but convertible foxes are just bitch cars.
The lighter sockets went the other day (conveniently I was trying to drive home from a city 200 miles away and couldn't fall back on the sat nav). Turned out to be a fuse, they're behind the glovebox and there's a diagram saying which does what, except it's wrong. It states that F46 is 15amp for lighters but actually f47 is that one. F46 is for the ABS module and is 7.5a. Just a heads up if anyone is changing the fuse for a cigar lighter on a mk1 Ford Focus.

I imagine they're very similar. When I pulled the fuse out it didn't look broken. The Haynes manual has the correct list though so it was all good.
fixed lights Got LL Opel H7 bulbs :)
[QUOTE=Hell Strike;34477507]going to fix the transmission and resell it[/QUOTE] Understandable. Says it's a good platform for V8 swap so I'm assuming it's a fourpot vert? IIRC not many Convertibles were V6, they were either V8 GTs or LXs, or four banger LXs. On another note, helluva deal on it. There's a ton around here for that price too, which kind of makes me want one. But I can't even afford the $500 Datsun 510 I want right now...

I just changed the terminals on my battery, and how my stereo won't let me use it, because honda thinks that there is a point in making you reset the radio with a code every time the battery is unplugged/dies. The problem is, i don't have the code, or the title to the vehicle (yet). FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
Yeah, that's pretty normal. Rather that than people breaking into my car to nick the radio.
I don't know why someone would steal a stock radio, but i guess i don't know what motivates thieves.
I know someone that had their car broken into for an out of date Kit Kat chocolate bar. Her next stop was to return said Kit Kat bar...
My car was broken into for a container of oil on the seat. They then proceeded to steal my ash-tray (It had some pennies in it) by ripping it out. They then threw my shit all over the car (But left it all) and left a full roll of toilet paper on the seat, unused but looked like they found it on the ground (It had been raining out). They also nicked my GPS but that was hidden in the glovebox.
I think i am going to take my rc car out of the passenger floor board now :tinfoil:
Alright, fuck it. I'm not even going to try and get this 510. No way I can get cash raked up quick enough. So time to use what money I have/am getting to boost the fuck out of my egg. [editline]31st January 2012[/editline] Truck sitting in the shop, 12v cummins, Holset HX35 on it. Hnnnnnnnnngh. When I get spare cash I'm going to hunt for one at the pull-a-part, $78 if I can find one. I'll snag one if I can.
Found out I had 1,000 dollar less than I thought I had, fuck college books >:( Now I gotta borrow money from my grandpa to put in a different engine and trans.
