Default Got my Christmas Shopping Started...

So I have been watching for something kind of cool for my wife to drive lately. She has never had her own car, and currently hasnt driven for 2 years or so aside from when she visits her fam and a few other things. Anyways this morning I was surfing the classifieds when I found something awesome for $500. A 1987 sr5 coupe! Now here comes the best part. She cannot drive stick at all. I bought her a ep civic and she drove it like one time so I sold it. Anyways, this sr5 is... AUTO! I know there are a few out there, but I got this for a steal and she cant drive stick so im pretty happy. Oh and I ended up paying $300 because the car is missing a few misc parts.

Anyways I am going to clean the car up and try finding the parts before christmas so I can give her, her first car for christmas!

Little/ no rust
Under 140k miles!

Here it is:

So you get a $40,000 car and she gets a $300 car....Doesn't seem fair to me.

You must do all the cooking.

I bought her a car before in fact she doesn't care to have a car at all so it's no biggie. We both use the STI for road trips and groceries

His wheels? Try just his lugnuts, valve stems and rally armour flaps.


Nice Brent! Ike Turner would be proud how strong your pimp hand is.

Remember, don't go for the face, always the head, the hair masks the bruises.

I ll buy her whatever car she wants. She drove a Evo x mr and said she hated it. We went to get a new impreza and as we sat down for paper work she changed her mind. Seriously she doesn't care.
