i buy cars with head gasget problems and fix them. i lost money on the last one. the cougar i have now should do well. i cant test drive all of them and im at the mercy of the owners when i ask them about the condition of the tranny's. some people have no problem lying. so after many hours and cash repairing the motor i find it needs a tranny. which is way to hard on a front wheel drive car without a lift. plus you cant get enuff $ out of it to make it worth while.

Im making 12$

And i just sit at the computer screen drawing sprinkler designs on Auto CAD.

AND my boss has a Jeep

By the way, he said a stock jeep can get through deer valley, only a possibility of body damage. Then he told me it is a boring trail, (i guess he is one of those badass jeepers). He laughed and said he didn't even need reverse the whole trip.

But hey im in it for the Jeep Pool and hanging out with friends i met on the internet And id rather be helping out other dudes get through a trail than sitting upside down with a cracked windshield thinking "damn shoulda gone to deer valley"

I make $15/hr. And I get my lunch paid for, and sometimes a beer or two too. And I only have to walk down the street about 5 or 6 houses

I take care of one of my neighbors with Cerebral Paulsy, will be doing it throughout the summer. It's pretty cool, he can't talk and uses sign language and is in a wheelchair, but he's 100% mentally fine, he just doesn't have motor skills like the rest of us. We cruise downtown, have lunch, hit up the bars, the mall, go for walks around the local state park, four wheel his chair It's pretty cool. And it's easy as hell, as bad as I feel about saying that it really is

A buddy of mine always finds screaming deals on cars, and he always makes a damn good profit. For instance he just picked up a 98 Land Rover last week for $500. Needed a battery, $117. New key- $120. Registration- $171, and it only has 80K on it. Said dealers have told him they'd sell it for 9K, he said he'll put it up for 7K and just let it go at that. He owns a smog shop and doesn't look for deals like this, but always lucks out with them. Sometimes I wish I could be that lucky...

this rain sucks though, anyone else around the Bay/Valley area getting it? It's not much, but enough to keep me from doing much work on my Heep today...

HOLY HELL! THIS IS MY 1000TH POST!
