I ought to put a CL posting up: Free Kudzu vines, you cut and haul away.

For those that don't know, Kudzu is a very (VERY) fast growing vine that was imported from Asia in the 30s to help control erosion. It's taken over a large part of my property, and it's just about un-killable.

I swear, if that stuff were valuable, I'd be Warren Buffett.

pretty nice, though it bugs me that the hood lines don't match the bumper lines. and the reflections oppose each other...

In many cases, cars with plastic noses like that MR2 simply start to deform (i.e. shrink, expand, etc.) from age, which then causes the front hood line to get messed up. In other words, it isn't necessarily an indication that the car has been in an accident. Cool little car, though. That's definitely my favorite body style of the MR2.

Just like Chevy trailblazers, every one of them has a deformed front bumper.

Or Chevy trucks. They all have dented rear bumpers. Presumably from lining up to your trailer, but more likely from soccer mom backing into the shopping cart corral

And newer Ford Explorers, the trim under the rear window where the emblem is is always cracked in half for some reason.

Wish those were in my area. I need new wheels bad.

EDIT: why does everyone sell BMW wheels in sets of four when the car has the fifth full spare?

Because they buy aftermarket wheels in sets of four, and the spare doesn't match.
