“I’m selling this for cheap “. Smoke much crack?
Junk yard LS in a broken Mercedes… $25,000. Umm yea I think you are going to continue owning this for a while.
Fix and replace the aforementioned items, sort out the interior to show worthy stock, make sure that LS1 runs well, add an actual steering wheel, and you might just have the most awesome car of all time. Not for 25k, but still, pure greatness.
I’m almost afraid to ask — what does “I have the pink” mean? Because Urban Dictionary has thoughts on this and they are not something I care to repeat.
pink = pink slip = title
The neo-chimpanzees in the Uplift series by David Brin would have a a strong opinion about this, just sayin’.
