Damn I wish I could find something like that for $500! I need like a 3/4 or 1 ton though but still!

$500 for anything that runs is a fair deal.

Good choice on the cheap car. You're wise beyond your years.

Dude, you totally schooled me on what a good buy is!

Congrats on the new ride! It'll serve you very well, esp. when you consider how much $$ your saving.

Honestly, I told my GF recently that if we were to move back to the prairies, I wouldn't bother with a nice car for year-round use. Something like what you got is what I'd go for, in a heartbeat. No point in messing up nice cars on crappy roads

302's last forever. My Mustang has 207,000 miles on it now with its current owner, just being beat on everyday and still runs like a champ.

Also, I got a call from insurance, and they gave me 3000 more for my car. I still lost 6000, but I'll take that over 9 any day!

Keep hassling the company, maybe try to get the news involved. If you're being treated unfair someone is going to have a field day with the insurance issue.

302's have much better sounding exhaust too ;)
