:shock: :shock: :shock:

While I do hate to give her away, i did need something with a little better MPG and 4 doors. Plus I havn't needed to put out one cent in order to do this transaction. For one I got the 74' for free from a lady who wanted to just get rid of it. it ran and a/c worked perfect. And so I went to a used car dealer and found a 1987 VW Golf 4 door hatchback. I've always wanted an older VW, and so they took an even trade in on it and I don't have to pay for the tag,title work, taxes or anything. :) i'll post some photos up of it once i go and pick it up today.

The VDub should be cheap transportation for you. My daily ride is a 2001 Mazda 626. I hate it but it is cheap to run and reliable and that's all that matters to me for daily transportation....:cool:

I drive a beater as well. My beater is a 2001 Chevy Cavalier that I paid $1,500 for about a year ago, from a coworker, who was the original owner. It had 116K miles, but has been super reliable. It gets 28-30 MPG on the road, and I don't have to wash it! Bullitt 4204 sits high and dry with 13K miles in the garage.

Tradin the IIser in on a VDub makes baby Jesus cry...

But he understands why. :)

Wish I had the money for the asking price, I've been searching for a decent IIser for some time now.

You did good Aaron. :) We almost got our 76 MPG (4 banger) Mustang 11 for free. :( An old lady friend of the family passed away and her family was going to give it to me free and clear. Well, their neighbor lady whose grown son had been taking care of the car for 3 years by starting it every so often and changing the oil, etc. wanted it, so the family gave it to them.

About a year later, they decided they didn't want it after all and we told them we would give them $1,000 for it. We had a little body work done on it and some small missing interior pieces put back, so we put about another $1,000 into it. It had sentimental value as my first Mustang was a 74 Ghia and this old lady's husband bought this Mustang 11 for his wife because he liked mine so well......

It is going up for sale this spring....

Anyone else here have a Mustang 11 besides me now? :surprised You left me standing Aaron!
