Granted, it's cool. But it's not $22k-cool.

That is ridiculous, that is at worst $5,000, at best $9,000

Ricer idiot selling a CRX, makes sure to highlight the ricer idiot bits. It's really not spectacularly bad, except for this:


It looks like he's photoshopped stuff out of this image. Badly. Above the rear wheel, and on the end of the hatch.

Someone needs to circle those, email him and ask his to stop being a human being and realize that someone has to LOOK at the car if they want to buy it

I emailed the mspaint CRX guy, asking for close up shots. Once he bullshits me around, I fully intend on offering him $120 and destroying his hopes and dreams of selling his piece of poo poo car for too much money.

The sad part is some kid WILL pay a lot for that piece of poo poo

I should probably point out that this kid's dad owns a chain of car dealerships in Western New York and Northwest Pennsylvania so they have a lot of money to kick around, and as a side effect he's a pretty big spoiled rear end in a top hat with no manners or respect.

There are literally hundreds of cars locally that exterior and engine wise are already one foot in the grave....but that doesn't stop Rapper McShitpants from adding $5,000 worth of speakers, LCDs, and subs to a $300 car

$7,000 (well...$6,972) for a 95 Jeep Cherokee Sport w/ 138k miles.

Blue Book retail is like $4,000 in excellent condition. What kind of poo poo are they smoking to think they can sell a gas-hog Cherokee for drat near double Blue Book when gas is topping $4/gallon? That pricing wouldn't fly if gas was $1/gallon again, much less now that it's 4x as much. Don't they get ~15 mpg average with no cargo?

More power to them if some dumbshit buys it for that price, but I don't think I could sell it with a straight face.

Considering I can find one for $1,500 for that condition.


HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure they have air brakes, so you need your CDL, at least here in PA

The vehicle is light enough that you do not need the CDL.

Go check the wiki, but maybe its different in Pennsylvania. I know its legal in Tennessee

It very well may be completely fine on just your regular license here, I'm going on the usually faulty info from PennDOT (And frankly, I may be hallucinating as well)

Well Pennsylvania is pretty strict on their classifications of what is a truck and what is not, so it doesn't suprise me.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M35A2

Weight: 13,050 lbs
I think it has to weigh 25,000 in Tennessee for you to need a CDL

Also, adding the winch adds 500 lbs. 500!

I checked my license, it's good for anything up to 26,001lbs.

Registration fee on something that heavy is probably pretty ridiculous though.

Registration is Dependant upon the purchasing price here, it'll be $75 (the max they charge to register a vehicle here).

Plus since its a collectors vehicle and won't be driven much I can get collectors insurance.

It's based on weight here

I read further into the wiki.

The brakes are actually a mix of air AND hydraulic.

quote:

Brake system is air-over-hydraulic six wheel drum with a driveline parking brake, although gladhands exist on the rear of the vehicle for connection to trailers with full air service and emergency brakes. Braking performance of the truck is similar to other power drum brake vehicles of this size. Each drum was designed with maximum efficiency in mind, and individual drums can dissipate up to 12 kW of braking heat. Due to this brake system and GVWR under 26,001 pounds, the big deuce can be driven without a commercial driver's license in most states. California requires a CDL to operate an M35 on public roads.

I really just need to make a thread for this

I mean I don't think he's wrong, really, he's just pointing out that yes, they will do that 500k miles, but you definitely aren't gonna get it for free (like you may be able to squeak by a Civic or Corolla or something.) I don't think that's too unreasonable? And isn't the reason most people like those old 80s mercs the oil-burners, anyway? I never hear poo poo about their gassers from that era. And from my limited experience, any of those you buy now that isn't just some immaculate thing owned by one person and taken to the dealer for everything since new doesn't exactly start out as the most reliable thing ever, even if you CAN make it that.

The engine will be reliable. Everything else....eh....no.
