Something year round drivable. Car or SUV no pref. what would you buy.
used civic / corolla, or camry / accord if you wanted something larger
suv depending on where you live and what the winters are like. If you have a mild winter then go car.
an old 4 runner with low km's in great shape. something you can rock in the winter to get around in 4wd and also take the surfboard to the beach
Hyundai Accent. For reals.
I looked at a few, also a few pathfinders/xterras
Pathfinders and xterras are nice but I heard that they cause you alot of coin in maintnance as they get older.
I concur with many people here. Depending on the winter and how much you are looking to carry around with you on a daily basis, go with a civic or coralla.
Used WRX wagon...
Lexus IS300 should be around that range now eh? I know my car has come way down in price, so I'm figuring they have as well.
Maybe an '01.
Pretty sure most of them are still sitting between 15-25K depending on year/km's etc.
I'd guess an IS would be no good for Mitchy though. Probably needs more room for things like surfboards and fat girls...
A forklift or a front end loader... and a Happy Meal?
I'll sell you my forklift for $100, it's got a custom flat black paint job with red flames done by Elgranto, and it's a Yota to boot!
those were the days. Chrome (in a can) rims too.
I believe it was built between 1968 and 1972
Seriously? Does it work/run? Pics? This would be great in a garage for doing engine swaps/whatever.
lol not seriously. I would have nothing to play with at work if I sold it
4-runner or Tacoma Pick up.
need to be able to chuck the surfboard/gear in it
and 4 wheels drive, forgot to mention that
Like Paul said, a Subaru would be a good bet.
A WRX wagon or a Legacy.
a 4 runner is the clear choice
the prices in NS are out to lunch though. 7 grand for one with 250k on it. in AB you can get mint diesel models with 80k for $8-9k. steering wheel on the wrong side though
I'll sell you my saab. Will last another 100000 years.
How could you ever go wrong with this? You could drive this for 10 years and then sell it for 5 grand. This is exactly what I'm talking about when I say and old 4 runner with low kms. Mint, will run forever, looks great. Gasoline model. Priced high at 10g but if you could get it for 9 it would be a good deal.
another old 4 runner. diesel. these get 30+ MPG. 73,000 km. you could get this for like 7 grand. perfect for what you want.
I'll give you a good deal on my chevette
MKIV R32....all wheel drive, 240 horse,...an exhaust note to die for
Their starting to drop to the sub 15 range now.
