My '97 e39 528i was gangbusters until it hit 250k miles. Then it went instantly and completely to shit. Radiator neck, power steering pump, about 6 different bushings, all 4 window regulators, the choke, and finally a cracked head.

That's because people in CA are dumb and willing to pay triple-value for anything with a Toyota badge. I'm in San Diego and I scored a really solid '97 Tahoe with under 150k on it for like 2500 bucks last year.

In high school, I was guarding my guy on a baseline cut, and as I passed under the hoop, I glanced back, and here's this dude dribbling unobstructed up the lane. So I step up, and he takes off way earlier than I expected him too. I didn't even have a chance to jump, because I was expecting him to take another 2 or 3… » 3/09/15 12:42pm 3/09/15 12:42pm

In my childhood, my dad had an old ass Chevy bubble-top. It was tan and he painted A-Team stripes on it in 3 different shades of brown, and rattle-canned the wheels gold.
