Default Finally!! The G.F. has a car!!!

After much trial and tribulation (which I shared with you all last week) she finally has a car. Told the guy with the Corsica to go to hell and give her the money back. I worked on that damn car for over an hour tonight at his house and couldn't make it right. Done deal, had to argue for the cash though. What a putz (I want to say something harsher but it would end up being nothing but ********* LOL!!).

Found an 89 Dodge Caravan LE with about 238,000 miles on it. $400 later and she is driving it home. Thank God!!!! Runs o.k. Tranny slips just a bit under hard acceleration, but it stops good, and will get her by for a few weeks.

LOL. I guess it's all relative. Compared to my old Honda Hobbit moped, it accelerates like a drag car!! LOL!!!

400 is a good price, but be aware that if that van has the v-6 in it, it may start smoking pretty soon...if not already...the valve guides go in those motors head work is the only fix...believe me, I tried everything Good luck with it!

BTW, the v-6 does accelerate hard...I was a bit surprised!

Ah, NO!!!! Dude, it goes. It stops. It was only $400. End of story. And most importantly, she is finally OUT OF MY HOUSE!!! Too much closeness.

Bill272,

Please don't show him that link! Now he'll be trying to steal the engine out of that thing for his boat!
