THANKS FOR LOOKING!!!"




Look! The on-dash DVD player/little TV!!

Those really are some BLUE racing seats!


Sadly, I imagine just from the look of it it's been pretty ragged out mechanically. Of course, I have no proof of that, but it seems that around here, people rice out their cars, put fart cans on then then drive the dogshit out of them, as though LOOKING like a supercharged sports car is the same as having a real supercharged sportscar.

Otherwise it may not cost TOO much to take that thing and UN-molest it... but given it's a 92, I would be surprised if it wasn't on it's last leg mechanically.

Ok, so you have the coin for a 383 conversion, a "Stage 2 shift kit" , but no time or money to get it tuned? Sure, I'll be right over.

Someone must have rushed right over... he pulled the ad... Thanks for the screen cap.

Aran: Because they can ;-) I much prefer someone doing this to an RX-7 over someone putting on some ridiculous body kit, giant wing, neon, altezza, and other glorious

And I'd guess he spent all his cash on the engine and install and then tought "Holy gently caress... I can't pay my rent/mortgage/bills!"

He's got 4 gauges on the dash and at least 2 on the a-pillar. What kind of information would they be showing? Street cred?

Giving him the benefit of the doubt, I'd guess:

Fuel pressure
Oil pressure
Oil temp
Water temp
Boost PSI or KPa
Air/Fuel Mixture
Tach, or shift light

But that's assuming the car is actually built up (it does look it, though not 18000 dollars worth of 8 year old built up). Otherwise, gauges are like NAWS... the more you go the faster the car must go (same goes for the Tach... the larger the tach the more RPMs it must be able to handle )

Incorrectly used word in warcraft (Dota, WoW). Noobs mistakingly think infinite form of gang=ganking. Some even use the word "gank" itself even though the word gank means either to steal or to hurt one's feelings according to dictionary.com

Me: wtf is "ganking"? you mean "ganging"?
N00b_Sux0r: yeah, whatever. Doesn't matter, someone set us up the bomb.



And while I did not find any Down-Under specific definitions for gank, I did find The Aussie Slang Dictionary Online.

For what it's worth, I always thought ganked meant stolen...

1992 Ford Crown Victoria. Ex Highway patrol car (so it has all the cool cop parts, which in this case is only the computer). Transmission is funky and causes a shake at low speeds. It has a PI (that's short for Power Improved) 260 HP motor out of a 2002 Mercury that only has 61,000 miles on it. I have no Idea how many miles on the actual car chassie, the odometer stopped working when the speedo stoped working.

Of course it has all the Police package stuff like vinal floors, AM/FM radio, very cool A pillar spot light, and bucket seats up front. No Granny bench seats here. The car has humongous 32" truck tires in the rear, and the front tires are near bald. The car has been painted (with a brush) in Ace Hardware interior latex called 'Green Beret'. It has WWII Style invasion stars and has been cristened the 'Raleigh Bell'.

Fun car, probably the cheapest, or biggest, or scariest convertable you will ever own. $500 cash and it's yours. It has a clear title and is ready for it's new home.

UPDATE: I have had several inquiries as to if the top is manual or if it comes up automaticly. Listen up, for $500 it has NO TOP. I don't know what you would call this (parade car mabey?) but there is no 'converstion' to the convertable, it is top down all the time.

UPDATE II: When you E-mail me as ask what is my lowest price and I reply "I am only asking $500 so how much lower do you want me to go?" that is not an invitation for you to try to low ball me. That is me calling you a cheap sonofabitch. If you think offering me '$350 CASH' for this will get my mouth watering you are mistaken and that will be the last communication I will have with you.

Sorry to post this tired cliché, but if it were close to me I would buy it. I'm not kidding. Sure, it's quickly becoming winter here in Minnesota, but I'd buy it, stick it in my garage and fix what it needed until I could proudly drive it around all next summer. There's no way my wife would let me buy a used cop car, chop the top off it and paint it flat green, but how could she argue with one that's already had all that done for ONLY $500?

No cliche necessary. If I could afford the time and spare the cash I WOULD go buy this... today. BUT, I've already got two Miatas, an F-150, an Audi 80 and a 95 Caprice cop car, so my wife would kick me out and force me to live in the back of one of them...

I always wanted to buy something like a mid-70s land yacht and cut the top off like that, maybe even weld the doors shut... I was going to paint mine some other color, but the army green is awesome.

How do you owe 30k on anything from 2003 that you bought last year? That car was 5 years old when he bought it and it's not overly rare or an exotic sports car. It's an old abused Evo for christsakes. When I bought my miata it was during summer and I overpaid by about 1200, but overpaying by at least ten grand is ridiculous!
Most likely answer - he was upside down on whatever he traded in on the car.

This, and he had no or poo poo credit and got the typical "surprise sex me in the rear end" loan at 20% - 30%.

Then again, owing money on a trade in will always get you... my friend got stuck like that... he bought a Chrysler back when he first got married, paid something like 10K for it, and it lasted maybe a year before it fell apart. He ended up trading that in on an XTerra but had to tack on the 7 or 8K he owed on the chrysler. Then they had their third kid, and needed something bigger, so traded the XTerra in on a Chevy Venture, and had to tack on the diff between trade in value and the outstanding loan on the Xterra, PLUS whatever was left of the debt from the Chrysler onto the loan to get the Venture.

Even after rebates, incentives, and talking the dealer down about 5K on the price, he still ended up paying about 10K more than what the van would have cost him with NO incentives and rebates had he never bought the chrysler...

It's really easy to snowball like that... which is one of the reasons I never buy a car that I can't pay fully off in 12 months... and typically, I buy ones I can pay for in cash. I've only had one car note since I was fresh out of High School and that was because I just HAD to have a 95 Caprice 9C1 (well, I have to admit, that IS a hella fun boat to sail around in).

When my dad was looking for his Retirement Toy, one of the guys he worked with, a big Harley guy, kept trying to get my dad to buy a Harley.

My dad finally looked at him one day and said, "Well, I can afford to buy a new Harley, but buying all the crap to go with it would bankrupt me."

Dad finally bought a Honda VTX 1800 and rides the hell out of it.

Much as I would like to buy a Harley, just for the novelty of it, listening to all the Harley owners I know makes me think that Harleys are like British sports cars.
