Default Best Deal You Ever Got?

So for a 3rd Gen Ipod 40 gig, with broken center boken and some other quirks

I got a ford 302, rear axle, and possibly a tranny .... but the axle and 302 are for sure mine. Glory Deals.

(and yes that is a chick with a dick, not the gear shifty thing)

I got a perfect red hardtop for $175 then sold it for $800 (helped fund my turbo project).

I hate you. I hope she dies before you get it and it gets donated and some bum gets the car, and then crashes into with no insurance!!

Got my current daily driver (Montero Sport) for $100, and the $100 included an oil change with Rotella Synthetic, a new PCV valve, and title/registration fees. Looks OK, runs pretty good. Needs a detail, and could use tires pretty soon. Best part is it has a heavy duty receiver so I can tow the miata and bikes behind it.

1/1000 Super Rare 4g61t turbo colt for 200$.

Beat on for 6 months. Cracked the windsheild, not a penny invested, 2 hrs of work time to fix it with parts included.

Sold for 1200$, could have got more, but wanted to expedite the miata search.

Message me with details before you re-sell that car. If it's not a rust bucket I want it... been looking for a good one for years.

if your talking about the 323....im not selling that, i've wanted one for too long, i would most likely sell the FD if i ended up with it though.
