Gonna have to get a loan from the bank cuz I only have about 1000 liquid and even spending that I'd be cutting it really close on bills. I don't want to go too much higher than 4000, Ideally closer to 3000.I have 3 weeks of rental coverage so I need to find a car by then.

My gut instinct is telling me miata, Small,, good on gas, entertaining enough, and from the buzz around here reliable and easy to wrench on. Seems like a good starting point. I did kinda fall in love with the aesthetic of the Dodge Daytona and 80d Nissans but I might be biting off more than I can chew with them.

Was looking around for a torrent and found this on youtube. Funimation also has Second Stage on their channel, but nothing later than that. Here's the playlist for First Stage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVG7zusJ1t8&list=ELLBPz0QR3ebI

Third, Fifth and Final Stages are readily available on nyaa, but I can't find Fourth Stage anywhere. If anyone has it or knows where to find it, please post it.

I also came across an "Initial D Legend" trilogy, never heard of it but it looks like it was released last year? Also available on nyaa.

Also, here is the complete manga that an anon posted a while ago: https://mega.nz/#F!cQUFHJJa!MFUJaCq-RJ1ry1EAUGOU5w

Well after 3 months my new car is officially totaled. honestly that thing was getting on my nerves and I was starting to hate it, but still it was my first car that I actually bought with my own money and got a loan for and shit. Also I can't go anywhere now and can't work so that kinda sucks.

6k I'm on the hook for and might still have to pay a good chunk depending how bad the insurance tries to jew me on the "value" of the car. I didn't even want that car though. 6k is more than I've ever spent on anything in my life, granted it was really the bank's 6k but with 6k I could take care of pretty much other problem in my life for the foreseeable future and move forward from this shitkicking paycheck to paycheck hell I live in now. If I was gonna spend 6k on anything else, my standards would be impeccably high/

I guess I'm just bitter. For 6k I could have bought my dream car in running project condition. The short time I had this car I was constantly irritated by all the inconveniences and problems caused by owning a "new" car (it was a 2007, much newer than anything I've ever owned). Everything being tied to electrical and computer systems. Battery draining, annoying beeper when I wasn't buckled, auto safety locks. Some of the things were just poor design cuz it was a goddamn saturn (the battery is in the trunk, which is opened remotely by the keys which is useless with a dead battery, but can be opened manually with the keys, except the keys lock in the ignition upon trying to turn over the engine with a dead battery. You can fold down the rear seats to access the trunk, but to do so you must pull two pins, located inside the trunk.)

I'm sick of cars that might as well run on magic with arbitrary designs and intentionally user-unfriendly. I'm not handy but I want to be but I can't do shit if everything in a car has to do with electronics or computers.

Why shouldn't I buy an oldass car with a good frame and low mileage?

I got roughly a thousand less from the insurance than I had on my loan. We hassled em down to 600 less. I live with my parents so I don't have to pay rent or utilities but I pay for everything I use and need except a roof over my head. Still when I start working again, a 2 or 3k loan I should be able to pay in about a year assuming I got it through my bank at 9.5%. My dad said for a non-auto loan they would probably ask for collateral and I don't think they accept firearms or computers or old video games as collateral and those are the only things I have of monetary worth,

Such bullshit. I can get a loan for a 10k car but not for one 3k and not unless I go through a scumbag dealer. fucking kikes. The bank was giving me shit when I applied for the loan for an 07 car so I can't imagine they'd be enthused about a 90s or 80s car. That was part of the appeal of a regular loan, just take my money and go get a car.

fuck it seems like theres no way out of this shit cycle. the game of life really is rigged huh get a car you can't afford, when you finally pay it off it's a hunk of shit, rinse repeat. no wonder everyone is so much debt, it's designed that way.


769ee7 No.13496

>>13495

See if your dad is open to cosigning on the loan, it might be easier to get approved and may reduce the amount of collateral required if there is any, though I'm not experienced with that. Also, I'm not sure what they would consider for collateral if they didn't consider smaller possessions like firearms. It couldn't hurt to ask them.

I'm not sure if it's possible to do so without being a member, but you might look into getting a loan from a credit union. They are much less kikey and might give you a auto loan for an older car with a higher interest rate like mine did. It was a choice betweeen 2006 or newer and 2.5%ish, or older than 2006 and 8.5% interest. Both auto loans. I could have done a private transaction as well. I know some dealers do financing through credit unions but that could be because they are members.

And, this may seem a little extreme, but you might consider switching to a credit union anyway, especially if you don't plan on moving any time soon. Again, they are much less kikey than banks, because they are unions that serve and are staffed by members, rather than businesses run by shareholders.

>no wonder everyone is so much debt, it's designed that way.

Yes, the modern, popularly accepted financial game is designed to fuck you over if you play it wrong. That's why I joined a credit union rather than (((Chase Bank))) that my parents are with. Unfortunately, a lot of people play it wrong because of what their parents taught them, directly or indirectly. The baby boomer meme is true in that they were the first ones to use credit so extravagantly, which was more okay than now, though still stupid, because the economy was in much better shape then. This behavior was passed on to their kids, and then to us. It's the norm to be in massive credit card debt. For many it's a way of life. Our culture of instant gratification hasn't helped. The only way to fix it is to not get into debt in the first place, and if you are already in debt, to pay it off before you spend more than is absolutely necessary on anything else.


49b84e No.13498

Every car I've owned has been bought cash over the barrel, and I'm on my most costly car right now, weighing in at $2600. Yowza. But this one will be far more reliable than the previous four cylinder shitboxes. No debt slavery for me, but also no new car for me. I have no debt whatsoever, but apparently I have pissed too many people off, because my credit report only shows my student loan that I paid off in two years (it was only like $3500). I tried to get a loan for a $15k house a couple years ago, and the bank told me to fuck off.


fed5c9 No.13499

I am part of a credit union, I just call them a bank out of habit. they're the ones who said they won't do private sales or older cars. I've been with them since my first job at 14 and they've been fantastic for everything except this

I realized that the popular financial practices are what lead to lifetimes debt and misery years ago, I just didn't anticipate how difficult it would be to take a different path. the only debt I have is around 4k of student loans which I pay every month and I use my credit cards but pay them off in full each month so I can build good credit should I ever need a loan. The shitty part is that I'm still young and lack experience and the only people I can go to for advice are my boomer parents who just tell me to repeat their mistakes which they of course don't think are mistakes.

>$15k house

Do you mean $150k?

>>13499

Ah. I suppose things like that do vary. It probably helps me that I'm with a larger regional credit union. Smaller ones would probably be more strict. It could also just vary that much.

Look up Dave Ramsey. You might not be able to find much because he seems like the stereotypical "buy my book to find out my secret to ultimate success!" people, but my mom got his high school finance class for me and my brother and while a lot of it seems like just basic common sense in the beginning of it, it might get more specific in more advanced things later on, like how and what to invest in and such (I didn't finish it). Maybe you could find lectures on youtube, I dunno.

The basic gist of it, though, is to not take loans when you don't need to, save and invest, and I suppose have a credit card that you pay off every month to get good credit so you can get things like car loans and mortgages. Saving is important, even if you can only save $20 a month. $20 is more than $0. I think the investing part is pretty big as well, because saving on its own, while a good thing, doesn't really give you much growth over time. I don't think the interest rate on the average savings account is even enough to counteract inflation. I don't think you need to worry about it right now, but once you are properly on your own it would be a good idea to invest in some safe markets.

That's how I would go about it anyway. It does take time, but again, you'll be much better off for it. At least, assuming you and I and everyone else in our generation make it before muh shit hits the fan. If not then all this is moot. With that in mind it would probably be wise to invest in guns, ammo, and protective equipment as well, which it sounds like you may already be doing.

Just weld the hinges in the upright position if you're worried about the motors failing. You don't have to weld very much and I would think it should be easy to grind off later.


1c4676 No.13474

>>13459

You might be ableweld the lights in the upright position. Wouldn't have to do a lot so it would likely be easy to grind off later if necessary. I think there may also be some kind of built in latch of some kind that stick them up. That would be preferable over welding, for sure.

All Germans are pretty fussy, but I think E30's are a little less so. I would avoid any other 80s Germans unless you are inclined to dealing with them.

True, but I was thinking it would be more of a temporary thing (just do a couple small welds on each side and grind off later). Also I mentioned a less permanent solution that may be present from the factory. Though, if you are going to get a shitbox one then I think welded headlights add character.

That would be funny. My friend found a "AE86" the other day for under 4k. It looks pretty good, but I can tell the guy did work to it. It had a Rev counter odometer and shit. Even if the car was fine I hate taking on other peoples projects. I also just started a new job, so I don't really have the cash to spend just yet.

While this guy was fine I also refuse to buy a car from anyone in the NY burrows since more than half the time they're selling you broken shit or ripping you off. I just can't trust them. Even if the car looks great and its a "fair" deal. I've overlooked a few cars from that hellhole of a city. I've been lurking 3-4 states and all of them want 5-10k for their mx5s. Fuck.

Im thinking about buying a '99 nipponese rustbucket

The undercarriage has rust all over the place. Not deep, mainly surface rust, but its still rust. How effective/reliable are the various treatments Dinitrol/FluidFilm/Mike-Sanders/Biskor? Is it worth bothering with? Its the only halfway decent car of the type in my area…

369342 No.13481

Surface rust on suspension components usually is no big deal, but as far as I know, the best treatment is sanding away and applying paint. It really depends on the price and what car it is whether you should bother fixing it out of your pocket. Worst case scenario is replacement parts.

>sand/grind and paint

This is the only fix I know of. If it is just surface rust then this is pretty easy as rust removal goes. If there are major rust spots on the frame, grind away and weld in new steel. Major rust spots on other components (primarily suspension) will necessitate a part replacement.

Sanding and painting shouldn't cost much money but will take a lot of time to do the whole car. Filling in major spots will require welding knowledge and equipment, and new steel.

Just took apart my Audi's dashboard for some hard and deep hole maintenance and to find out why my a/c is behaving funny. Just some rusted contacts and springs that needed lube.

if you go a bit over 100cc, there is a huge market of affordable 125cc bikes that are extremely simple in construction, with parts readily available from the manufacturers.

I don't know if these people actually think they are cool or if they do this as a joke. I'm sure there are people on both sides but there must be a majority.

Hey, figured we could have a "spotted" thread. Post pictures that you yourself have taken while out and about.

Pic related, saw a really clean SRT-10 a couple weeks ago that was stopped in front of me at a light.

I love that mustang. Here's some shit I found on my SD card from my old flip phone. Even for its time that phone took shit photos.

Friend just got back from overseas. Wants to buy an older car as a daily driver and as a hobby and he asked for my help not so much because of my mechanical expertise but because he's a babby and had a car thats not his mom's 2008 impala or a humvee. He asked me what I thought about the "shelby charger". Apparently thats an 80s subcompact…dodge charger that was built with the direct consultation of…Carroll Shelby.

So I'm pretty fucking confused. Anybody know anything about these cars? I haven't been able to find much? I tried talking him into something similar but more common like a datsun or a foxbody but he seems really set on it.

I found these:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dodge_Charger_(L-body)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shelby_GLHS#1987

Sounds like an FF turbo 4 cylinder. Like a fox body SVO but dinkier. Sounds like shit to me. Combined with 80s Chrysler rust I would avoid them like the plague.

>>13447

The rust was my main concern. the snow and salt is pretty bad up here and I mostly know about bikes so I tried to steer him towards something newer but he's determined to get something vintage. I thought Fox bodies were somewhat sought after though? 88 mustang from texas was one of the others he showed me, for some reason he likes the little 80s domestics.


619ea8 No.13450

80s cars have a nice charm to them. If he's willing to go to Texas I'd sooner push someone towards a fox body Mustang than a Dodge I've never heard of, since Mustang parts will be a hell of a lot cheaper and easier to find.

But are there really no 80s Mustangs he can find without having to leave the state?

95% chance he ends up with a faggy WRX like all military bros who want to pretend to be "tuners".


9d217c No.13458

>>13450

No I mean it's a car from texas thats here. transplants from the west coast are sought after as they haven't had any new england winters under them

Trust me if he was on the west coast he'd have his pick of the shitbox litter
