Default Spokane, WA- South Jordan Today



Well I have done it again! I found a car on craigslist and based on RAZR Quality images 750 miles away and flew out to buy it.

Got to Spokane, Washington this morning around 10:30am MST paid for the car, and left directly from the airport to head back to Utah.

This car is very old, and extremely slow. Also I knew I had a long drive ahead of me, so I really had to stay light on the pedal.

Now we all know that the drive times on Google Maps are usually very conservative, but I was able to somehow take 3 hours longer than what Google Maps had said the trip would take.

Car ran great, and is a champ, but is slow (998cc Engine, 4 speed).

Anyway, here are a few more pics...

Oh, and only one horror story: Owner told me lights weren't working and that he would check it out. I got there and he said it was just a fuse and he hadnt had time to fix it. So I drove most of the day and decided I would grab a fuse at lunch. I opened the fuses and there were no bad fuses. Then I looked and found that the light switch wasnt even wired! So This through me into panic mode! I had planned to be home tonight, so there was no option but to be home tonight. I strung up the high beam to stay on constantly, and put these tap lights colored red on the rear window. I had no other choice and made it home with no issues from any of the many officers I passed (GB plate and all)!!

Ok, but what if I sell in 2?

I cleaned out all the junk, though the car still needs cleaned.

Scraped all of that weird cloudy tint film stuff off the back window:


Also found this gem under the front rug (in case the GB plates weren't proof enough):

I had a guy who was in the 280-300 lbs range about 6'2" in my 67 Cooper S once. He damn near ruined the Paddy Hopkirk seat covers. The car was sooo slow with him.

In doing some research, I found that the mini city (this car) is the most fuel efficient mini (45-55mpg). Exciting.
