So, I didn't log on at all yesterday because I've been kinda busy. As many of you know, I owned a really cool 1986 Dodge Ram 318 V8. Well, it's an old truck and it has some problems. It runs perfectly but the floorboard on the driver's side is rusted out and the seatbelt loop thing on the floor went with it. Also, it has a short in it somewhere and the headlights work only when they want to and the windshield wipers don't work. I bought the truck (or more accurately, my mother bought me the truck) for 800 dollars, which was a fair price. This was about a year and a half ago. Well, the problems became too much and we mutually decided that I should get a more reliable vehicle because there's no telling when something major is going to wrong with it.

So, the day before yesterday we were looking of Craig's List (this website which is pretty much pages of classified ads) and we found a 1993 Buick Century for sale, and the guy only wanted 700 dollars for it. We drove for about a half hour to a town that is pretty much right next to mine and test drove it and gave it a thorough inspection, because the last car I test drove drove completely fine. Then, later we found out that it had been wrecked and that the airbags were deployed and that the chassis was bent. We have been being extra careful because I don't want to spend money on some piece of sh!t that will break(you) down.

After we inspected it and test drove it, we realized what a deal it was. The car was super clean, and it drove like a dream (for a car that is over 15 years old). The guy followed us back to my house so we could close the deal, and he saw my Dodge sitting in the driveway with a "For Sale" sign in it. He asked all about it, and then he test drove it. After that, he told me that he was willing to trade vehicles. So, I ended up buying the Buick for 200 bucks and my Dodge. So, we pretty much lost 300 bucks on that deal.

F*CK!

But, the car I bought is awesome. It is soooo clean, it has to be worth 1000 dollars at least. He bought it for his wife because her car broke(you) down or something and she needed something to use until they could buy a nice, new family vehicle. So, that turned out to be an amazing day for me. We had been trying to sell my truck for sooooo long, at least 8 months, and the day I finally found a car I could afford (I actually had enough money to buy the car myself, so I am not in debt to my mom at all) we also sold the truck.


This is what the car looks like


Of course, the car doesn't look that nice anymore. It is white and has a few rust spots around the wheel wells and stuff, but very very little. Yesterday we sanded them down and re painted them with touch up paint, so now it looks really good. We also thoroughly cleaned it, inside and out, and it looks amazing. I'm so glad I found this car.


I just wanted to share this little piece of my life, because my car situation has been a source of constant stress for a looooooong time now, and I finally have relief. I mean, I'm going to be a senior when I start school next week and I haven't been able to get a working vehicle until now.

+rep for awesome story
That's awesome how he followed you home and saw your old car. That is something that only happens on tv axe. I don't want you spreading propaganda anymore. If brute checked threads he would agree.
But yeah- I never get to drive around unless its a wednesday and its between 5-6pm and I ate dinner after doing some sort of long chore and jupiter is aligned with at least 3 moons

Ok, so I own a 1970 VW Camper Bus right? Well it hasn't always been that way. When I turned 14, my dad said that he wanted to build a car with me, as he is a car enthusiest and has built countless cars. At first, I wanted to rebuild an old Porshe for no f***ing reason. But my dad recommended I get something that I can haul stuff in, gets okay mileage, and is relatively easy to build. So, being the lil hippy I was, I chose a VW bus. I had to completely rebuild it from the ground up, but now, I camp in it when I want to lol. Everyone has their own car, and a story to go with it, Axe, that car fits you, it's so f***ing metal lol.

Ah!

so G1 is the equivalent of a learner's permit. I gotcha, I gotcha. In that case I got my G2 like 3 weeks ago. I could have gotten it like a year ago but I didn't have any money for insurance etc etc

You know what you should do? Become a GODDAMN hobo and live off the land. You could eat mysterious mushrooms that grow out of rotten logs and drink water laced with dirt and feces.

The hobo life is the life for me
