Yeah, take your time. It took me over a year to latch on to our Tercel. I
went through at least 24 cars in the course of that year. The one I
eventually bought felt right, right from the beginning.
In fact, every used car I've ever bought since 1981 has been approached in
very greatly protracted leisure. I'm NEVER in a hurry. There's always
another one available somewhere. It's actually easier these days, with the
Internet. It was more difficult back when you had to rush off to the
convenience store as early as possible Thursday afternoon to catch an
AutoTrader before all the good stuff was sold.
Unless you've stumbled across a super-rare barn-find all-original
'65 Mustang K-code once owned by somebody very famous, no car is worth
getting weepy-eyed over. A car is a car. Take your time. Find the right
I hear you.
I like what you say here. I am glad I currently have the
reliable wheels to support my amateur addiction and indeed
not be in a hurry.
Priced a paint job today: $1000 or more, and the less
expensive ones look lousy. Guy at the body shop said he
thought my current paint job (the original) looked good and
I'd make it worse by re-painting.
Fixing up the rear wheel wells would cost around $750. But
the guy did not impress me. Bustard literally poked holes in
my work, like it was his car. I think I'll stick with my Pep
Boys plastic/roof cement/black paint/etc. fix and, like I
say above, keep an eye peeled for a CRX.
