Got a new project for $500.
already had offers on the car for well above that, but Im gonna fix it up a bit and sell it on, hopefully for a decent profit.
1980 Chevrolet El Camino
a previous owner swapped in a 350 and a Turbo 350 trans in it with a B&M floor shifter. Got it with a dented front fender, and with starter issues, either the starter isn't bolted on all the way, its missing shims, or its the wrong starter, because its rubbing the flywheel, and wont start the car.
Should be fun!

Guess I should update this thing too....
IHC helped me out, and we got the Timing belt, water pump, thermostat, distributor cap, distributor rotor, spark plugs, and plug wires all changed. I cleaned up the interior a bit, changed most of the interior bulbs over to LED, because most of them were out, and I'm too lazy to tear apart the digital dash.

One of the few things that still induces a bit of puckering when I ride is conducting my routine mirror check / crazy Ivan and seeing a tractor-trailer directly behind me. The mental image I get is that of drop-kicking a bunny into a wood chipper.

That's kind of what I'm talking about, though. The thought that always crosses my mind is basically "What happens if I lay it down with this guy <30 M behind me?"

And yeah, that's rhetorical; I pretty well know what would happen.

File 148330996066.jpg - (359.45KB , 1600x1200 , car, Chevrolet Sonic LS 2017 1.jpg )
If you are going to buy a car from a dealer, then go to multiple dealers in the same day and play them off of each other for the best deal.
Remember that dealerships tack on $500 or more as a special rip-off fee, so their hurt feelings and indignant protestations of "I thought we had a deal" should mean nothing to you.
I was looking for a cheap, domestic compact commuter to replace my 1999 Saturn SL sedan. I bought that Saturn new and it has served me very well, but at 172,000 miles, it's just showing its age and things are breaking down. Searching around for used car deals on various places like the newspaper and online sources like Craig's List and TrueCar, I selected the Chevy Sonic as the one I wanted (as Saturn is no longer in business at GM after the 2008 auto industry catastrophe). The Sonic is like a more compact version of the Chevy Malibu, cheap features (hard plastic interior, 15" steel wheels, roll-up manual windows, few frills) but a solid drivetrain. Not as dinky as the Chevy Spark (98 horsepower, 31 city / 41 highway MPG, $13,000). I was considering getting a vehicle with all wheel drive to better handle the icy winter Colorado roads, but cars like the Chevy Trax and Ford Escape were a bit too expensive for me ($21,000 to $24,000).
I was first going to get a Sonic that was only a few years old. You can find some good deals on 2013 & 2014 models under 40,000 miles, around $7000 or so and I had that much cash on hand to buy them outright. Looking further, I found 2015 Sonics with very low miles (around 5000 miles) for around $10,000. I wanted to trade in my Saturn on the purchase, but the Chevy dealer said it was only worth $200. I told them the new tires and battery was worth far more than that. The dealer's 5000-mile 2015 Sonic was tempting, but I drove off to another Chevy dealer to see what they offered. They would give me $1500 for my Saturn, but their selection of used cars was limited. They said I could buy a new 2017 Sonic for $14,000 after the trade-in, discounts and rebates. I called the first dealership and told them that and they said they could sell me a 2017 Sonic for $13,750. The second dealer said they would match that, so I went with them.
This is an example of getting sucked in incrementally. I first wanted a slightly used car for $7,000, but liked the recent low-mileage ones for $10,000 but concluded that I could just buy a new one for $14,000. Double what I wanted to spend, but I get the full warranty.

Sold the El Camino, made out okay too.

Bought a 2001 Saturn SC2 from Copart for $450, plus auction and broker fees, after registration and emissions testing, still out less than $1000. Got a running, driving, 5 speed DOHC car, with under 100k miles. Needs a few things, the drains for the sun roof are clogged, and so it leaks a bit, the front PS CV axle and/or wheel bearing is bad, and it needed a tune up(spark plugs, plug wires, oil change, air filter, and serpentine belt), but that was done within the first week.

Thought we had a bike thread somewhere.

The steel seat frame (the steel that you lock the seat post onto) on my seat failes yesterday, and I tried to cannibalize the frame from a cheap seat I had lying around. Been at it for an hour with a bench vise and elbow grease but couldn't get all three points of the seat frame into place.

Google has been usurped (though it's squarely Google's fault) by SEO / marketing lenses, and did not find any help there. Is this doable?

Sold the Saturn for $2300, made off pretty well IMHO.
Bought a 2006 Dodge Dakota as a new Daily for me, and gave my 2013 Kia Rio to my Wife to replace her 1994 Mercury Villager that's getting long in years, and miles. The Dakota was completely stock, 4x4, 4.7L V8. since buying it, I've installed a lift, 2" in front, 1.5" rear, to level it out, installed new strut assemblies in front, new shocks in rear, new tires, all new brakes, basically all the regular maintenance/safety items.

Somewhere between point A and point B I started hydroplaning and hit a tree. Get my rental next week and then have about two weeks to find a new car

Thinking miata, a foxbody, or a K-frame like the Daytona or Shelby Charger. It doesn't have to be cool, I just have to think it's cool. Also good on gas and and smallish preferably. Any words of advice? 8chan /o/ is slower than strip club. Hoping I'm not breaking the rules by posting here but I'm kinda desperate.

Also I don't know anything about car repairs, I want this car to be a crash course that doesn't break the bank

Not a picture of mine, or even the color, but I'm in a 2015 Forester Limited I bought for a song from my father in law because my mother in law decided she didn't like it and wanted an Outback. I'm very interested in putting a modest couple-inch lift, bigger tires, skid plates and knobbier tires and stuff on it just to be weird. Doing a swap for an XT engine would be the cool, money-doesn't-matter thing to do but even if I could justify it, I'm still under warranty.

Hard to believe this thread is still here (OP posted in 2012, so that's been SEVEN YEARS! Is this a record?). I posted >>18752 in 2015, but the time has come to replace the old Fusion, which was falling to bits. So, meet my new car. It's a Peugeot 3008 1.6 turbodiesel. Bigger, quieter and more comfortable than the Fusion, but still silver and still 2WD.
I was considering a Rav4 or Vitara and then I saw how much it would cost to insure. Yikes! So for now, I've settled for an ugly crossover.

I got this thing running pretty quickly despite the wait on parts, but getting it to run as it should was a pain, it still had all of its original parts (yes, even points/condenser/tires/brake shoes/...) and was never maintained in all those decades.

Bringing back a dead thread
Traded in the daily driver, and got a new 2020 Kia Niro Plug in hybrid. The EV range is exactly the same as my daily commute, so its pretty much perfect, since I can plug it in in the parking lot at work to charge, and drive for free. Bonus, no range anxiety for longer trips.

Also, took the Tahoe off-road with a friend and his Wrangler Rubicon with a coilover lift. Tahoe now has a 3" block/torsion key lift and stock size wheels and tires, it used to have a larger wheel diameter, but very similar rolling diameter tire. The transfer case and front diff make noise, but not enough to notice if you drive it hard enough... haha
