Default Picked up a daily driver-ish

It has ac which is a plus. I paid $500 for it and ill only cost me $4/month for liability the miata cost me $100/month for liability. It gets shitty gas milage and is slow as hell but i need somthing to get to work while i tear into the miata.

you should go to hallett this sunday. I'll be there...and obviously I'm still here.


Cool daily. I kinda wish I could have spent $500, instead of $6500 on my daily.

Very practical - it has lots of room for stuff like suspension parts and rear ends. Hell, you can't get anything that runs for $500.

I won't knock anything that size, that runs, for that price. I've seen trailers sell for far more and they aren't water tight, self powered, or cooled with A/C. You done well buddy.

You will end up keeping it. Paid $800 5 years ago for mine. Mines basically a truck since I never have the rear seats in it and you can cram a shitload of stuff in the back of one when you don't really care about the interior. Mine doesn't get great mileage either but it is comfy for long trips and it isn't slow .
