Hoping after you drove all that way you'd just bite it and buy it just to make it worth it I guess. that's why I don't even search c list without clicking the button to filter out posts without pictures.

Those are getting done first. Lol. Tires are being bought next week. Then exhaust 2 weeks after.. HOPEFULLY. But I do need / want new lights so I'm just looking now. If a super good deal pops up, the exhaust can wait a couple more weeks.

My rule of thumb is to assume a seller's idea of "good" or "excellent" means good or excellent taking into consideration how bad and how often they beat the piss out of the car.

Man.. my previous job out in Milwaukee is pissing me the off. It's been a month since they let me go / I let myself go and these s still haven't paid me all the past due money they owe me. When I got fired, they owed me 2 full checks, and I believe another half check. I haven't seen a g dime. Yet everytime I talk to the owner he tells me "it'll be there this week."

Such bullshit. The guy is such a coward. If you don't intend on paying me until I get the state involved (which I'm currently doing) then at least have the nuts to say it. These guys are such tools and tried to give me such a guilt trip when they let me go.. like GTFO dude.

I have half a mind to show up on his doorstep and sit there until the ass pays me my money.


Now I know why pissed off employees come back to shoot the place up.

Some people aren't really cut out for executive positions. He's obviously a wimp since the man can't at least tell you that he has no intentions of paying you.

Anyway I've had a horrible day today. Got denied for a loan from two different places including my own bank because I have no credit. But the guy seemed cool and hes going to talk to some people for me.

Edit: Maybe there is hope. Found a zx5 with 119k miles on it and the car looms immaculate. The salesman called me about it and I'm going to hopefully trade in my baby for the fofo.
