    Body-on-frame vehicles typically only have 4-6 bolts holding the body to the frame. If one of those lets go it's really easy for the rest of them to follow suit.

    Huh, and all this time I thought the Gavrils and the Hopper just had ridiculously loose bodies. I mean it's still a bit of a structural integrity concern but good to know.

    Yup. Pickup trucks are a little different in that it's 4 bolts for the cab, 4 for the bed. But yeah, Beam is actually fairly accurate to how flimsy it can be sometimes.

    Me: "I have no money, I need to save every penny I make."
    Also Me: "Damn, this $4,500 worth of OEM replacement digital gauge cluster and Sync 3 radio for my Mustang sure are tempting."

    I agree on the first, but for "also me" it's more like: "Damn, this $4,500 Mustang sure is tempting." ;)

    You can definitely find SN95s and Foxbodies for that much. The only caveat is that they'll likely be Swiss cheese and have the 2.3 (N/A!) or the 3.8. Once in a blue moon, you can find a 4.6 SN95 for that much, but again, it won't be the best example out there.

    It depends. If you consider $10,000 for a six cylinder cheap, then yes. For most people, however, it's a decently pricy car, especially as a second "fun" car.

    What country?
    I was eating some beef stew, then some of the beef dropped off my spoon, only to splash in the stew and go into my eye. It stung badly, but I am fine now.

    First and foremost, I congratulate you for doing well enough to have a computer, as I know things are rough there

    And maybe they needed a better way to sell to the dictator and drug lord classes?

    Credit to my PC for holding up over time. It's been with me for possibly more than 7 years by now. I'm 17, so it's been around ever since I was a kid.

    Yup, it's definitely that. No wonder they would open a dealership in a country that produces fuel so bad Cuba rejected it.
    CUBA.

    Uhhhh, so, Steam is messed up, we had to un-install it, then re-install it, so i probably will not be able to come back to this game...

    Goodbye you guys! It was fun while it lasted!
