    I was comparing the two V6 options because you definitely cannot find a V8 in good enough condition for less than $5,000. I wouldn't reccomend a Z/28 for a cheap daily, especially in a snowy climate like Alaska. As great as a Z/28 is, they can't be found for cheap because they have either been garaged their whole lives or beat on with no maintenance.

    Took a drive today, passed the town hall which usually has a car show Saturday mornings.

    There was a '55 Chevy and a pair of PT Cruisers. One of which had a Plymouth Prowler's grille...

    Removed the front muffler of my car and replaced it with a 3 inch Metal pipe. Sadly not to much help with the roar between 3-4000 rpm it sometimes is so bad that you cant understand your passenger even though the car is still silent when youre not in the 3-4k Rev range

    You can, you just gotta be in the right profession. Just like the guys in the 70s were.

    The reason why so much people lease cars is because theyre dirt cheap then. I just looked for leasing deals and found a A250 Merc for 129 euros per month or a Seat Mii for 29 euros a month also when the Leasing is done you can buy it rather cheap still or just get the next one. Also if youre more of a Jaguar Person you can have a 250hp XF-R Sport with nearly full kit for 340 euros.

    Dodge Neon deal is off. Seller turned out to be sketchy as all heck, is a licensed dealer but is operating out of a residential area, claimed to be selling for someone else and "not in a hurry to sell it", has court/arrest records visible online, when I indicated that I wanted to back out of the deal he called me and tried very unprofessionally to shame/psycho-bully me into coming anyway. He implied that I might have been "like everyone else on Craigslist, wasting his time" and "blowing smoke up his [name of a farm animal]". As if I have nothing better to do with my life! Frankly I think God was looking out for me when the guy revealed his sketchiness by text message right as I was about to leave the house. If he was trying to bully me on the phone, there's no telling what he might have tried to pull in person!

    Oh - the reason it had no license plates in the photos is because the registration lapsed, so obviously it's been sitting for a good long while.

    What does that have to do with that context? Also, I doubt there's more than a few, if any SRT-4s for sale in Alaska for that matter.

    Looks like it's still on pre-2000 plates because it hasn't been driven since will before 2000.
