      Made my day. AND made me laugh out loud.

      You remember when the entire "recent comments" column was populated by K2MysteryCar.

    You believe that a small block V8 from a donor car is the answer to every question.

    14. When you go to an event with your wife and your hands look like you work on an oil rig.

      14a) When you walk into the patient's room and they take one look at your partially blackened fingernails and say: "YOU'RE the doctor??"

      14a) Blackened finger nails, nice! What do they call the guy who graduated last in his med school class? Doctor.

    15. You turn up your nose at every Jaguar and Fiero without an engine swap.

      16.1) You've talked yourself out of a Corvair sitting under the B-J tent for the past 3 years.

    I just come here to gloat. I haven't been in the market for bottom feeder cars in a very long time. You poor fools…

      So that Corolla's been working out for you then?

      Me neither. The last $1100 car I bought still works!

      I wonder who's driving the cheapest car around here? I mean one they paid for from a CL ad or something, not given to them by their mom, or in Vince's case, a pirate.

      I'll start: £150 Xantia off classiccarsforsale.co.uk, rust-free, zippy enough, comfortable and all-round pleasant. Yes, it cost several times that to get the hydropneumatics working, but no one said cheap cars are cheap.

      I drive a $500 e34 not given to me by my grandmother.

      Oh please….you drive a $5000 e34 that you paid $500 for….HUGE difference. 😉

      Had a $200 ‘88 244/M47 that neededthe 16A fuse on the fender replaced to be functional. Sure, suspension and other needs had been neglected, but got a good two years out of it before passing it on.

      Using a $2900 Buick Regal GS as my daily driver. Currently has mismatched seats while I try to sew some new upholstery for the driver's seat out of a leather jacket I found in a secondhand store. Other than that, it's just needed some basic maintenance items.

      @Matt – Which gen? Stick? – Something about a Regal with a stick makes me tilt my head like a puzzled puppy. My folks had a 1978 in powder blue with a white vinyl roof over the back half, which made zero sense. Hard to think of a car for drivers less interested in driving. Sproinged all over the road like a drunken wallaby. 5.0, but felt like it had emphysema. Newer ones are better. GS is better still.

      It's a '98 with the 3800 Supercharged, so stick shifts were never an option. I've seen a Getrag 5 speed swap done to these cars, but I have too many other projects going on to try that (or to try turning the engine 90 degrees and putting a Camaro T5 behind the motor, which has also occurred to me).

    18. Coming up with reasons not to buy a featured car requires ever-increasing mental effort.

    19. You daydream about building a Hillclimb car out of DT feature, when the only hills within a 100 mile radius of you are all named "bridge"

    I think there are many other people who are interested in them just like me! How long does it take to complete this article? I have read through other blogs, but they are cumbersome and confusing. I hope you continue to have such quality articles to share! Good luck!
    happy wheels
