Why not just get another Jeep just like it. There’s likely one that is identical for sale on Craigslist that is perfect other than missing a title and needing a key.
It’s amazing how cheap a stick Ford can be. And I’ve heard they last forever. But that doesn’t help Ford sell 2020s.
I mentioned it earlier, but I don’t think GM is nearly as bad as it was. I’ve rented vehicles recently. And of the vehicles I’ve had as rentals, the Chevy Malibu stood out, and in a way I didn’t expect. I got in the car, pushed the easy to find start button, and drove it around to where I needed to go. Every single… Read more
My mis-spent youth always remembers this when I hear Blueflame
I figure the tires are around a grand, the shocks are at least another grand (depending on who installs them and the exact brand), and I’m not sure about Boxster brakes, but I know most Porsche brake jobs are not inexpensive.

Nah, no rental car counter can upcharge for that.
Ford could have tempted me if they didn’t have the disaster of DCT with the Fiesta and Focus. I was close on the first gen Focus, but life threw me a curveball that got me out of the new car shopping plan. When I started shopping again, I considered a Focus, but nothing but problems with that DCT really drove me… Read more
