Haha!!!



And I lease one car, and own the other. I do this because I end up trading in the car every 2/3 years. I make a monthly payment, put very little miles, and generally have a car that is worth more than the buyout price of the lease. Thus I end up with about a 1,500$ credit towards my next lease. Done. New car every 2 or 3 years. No repairs ever. Oil change once a year (always get the first free when negotiating the new deal).
But this really isn't for everyone. Credit score really does need to be high to qualify for the low money factor.

get DAT cruze its a Chevy parts for it are like $5 (yes even a new engine) Just find a somewhat decent car! Browse CL see if you can't find a babied granny cruiser, regardless of what it is! And see if you can pick something you like outta that selection because let's face it you don't wanna work on a car you beat the pineapple seeds out of everyday....just my opinion your getting to into it going for another "sports car". I fear if you buy something toooooo nice you'll start dumping cash into that too. Summary is find a granny cruiser that's been babied .....save cash for the Nanner mobile and don't break the bank in the process on a car your only using for a D/D. And thank you for making me laugh for a half hour with your alcohol line

My parents had a few GM cars MY2000 and I found parts to be just about as outrageousas anything else.

that right there is childs play, my dear chad...


my great gp's were candymakers and did all sorts of fun stuff. i barely remember them, but my grandmother would use their recipies and make us stuff. this is why i don't call caramel apples 'candy apples', cause they ain't.

red delicious seem to be some of the most common apples i see being used, but they tend to be rather blah to my palette. i always likes granny smiths, but winesaps were often used by my great gp's. had to have some tart with the sweet. yum!!

these guys also work well with chocolate as well as caramel. yours appears to be several layers, with what appear to be rice crispies?? and some choc drizzle over that. can't tell exactly, but it does appear that it is, in fact, a granny smith as i see a touch of green in the corner by where the bite(s) have been taken.

i tend to like mine a bit heavy on the cinnamon, (which may not work so well with the chocolate, depending....)

Or like this,
"The point is, find a babied car some granny drove. That way you can save money for the repairs in the m3 rather than pay for repairs on a daily diver."

I see reading isn't your strong suit - I described it in the very same post you quoted.

It's caramel rolled in toffee bits and drizzled with chocolate.

Good eye on the Granny Smith and catching my bites though.

Photos are required when you finally get it back!

On the topic of the new Dodge Dart, I think they look terrible. I would never consider owning one.

I really liked the photos of the Dart, then I saw one on person. Rear still looks real sharp but the rest is sloppy. Looks like a caricature of a car.

How goes the weather Joe?
