something cool with wheels... a Ponant lines cruise ship offers an arctic expedition with a SHERP ATV
most interesting thing I saw while walking around today, was this VW truck / samba / kombi in the process of getting worked on. It's got 100 thousand dollar potential if they do it right
It's in the same back yard as this BMW, motor bike and newer VW van. I noticed them first, then the older VW. Why are there so many newish BMWs that are neglected and not used? Damn waste of money and well built cars.
I think these two Metros parked within spittin distance of each other shows that someone is either collecting Metros, or, bought a back up for parts to keep the best one running
using spare tires for both front tires? Is that weird? Or make some logical reason I am not not aware of?
Hard to believe someone is working on repairing a mid 70s mopar
Seriously, painting over your license plate is going to piss off the cop that pulls you over for speeding, or is checking the parking meters and spots this. This is just stupid.
I'm surprised for how much these cost, that they are used so little in San Diego, where the weather is so nice year round that only a couple rainy days would ever prevent me from riding a motorbike I've blown 20-50k on
Wow, very surprised to come across a mid 70s Duster, and it's in good shape. I would never want one newer than 72 though, they got ugly and burdened with smog junk after that
2001 Trans Am that he got because he was patient and knew exactly what he was looking for, the exact model, W06 and 2001, if I remember right, and this was unusual as when he first found it while looking around, it was listed for 15k, and he offered 12.
They declined, and he came across it a year later, still on the same used car lot. They had come down on the asking price, and wanted 14, I think he said. He offered 12 again, they declined again.
A year later he saw it listed again, and checked his text message history, and sure enough it's the same one, now at least 3 years on the same used car lot, and they had come down to 12k, but were too stupid to have called him up to see if he was still interested.
So he asks them how much, they say 12, he says I offered you that and you wouldn't take it, and now the car is 2 years older without being taken cars of, now my offer is 10k. Or you can see how many years it sits on your lot taking up space. They took the 10k.
He had to wait 2 or 3 years, but, he got it 33 percent less.
I'm going to take a moment and express my admiration for Marty, and I have posted his videos before, but here he demonstrates his uncommon terrific nature by repairing a road with the excavator he rescued from the forest and repaired. (Already posted that video years ago)
