I posted awhile back about getting a Mitsubishi Galant for free. Well we finally found another vehicle to help fix it up, for $200. Only problem with this car is that the timing belt is broke, but the transmission and all works. Also going to use it to replace the back glass and some interior parts on the black one.
In other news, a man who we've been in contact in with for almost a year appears to be ready to give us his two Geo Metros. I'm not sure if they actually work or not, but between the FIVE of them that we would then have, I'm sure we could make something happen
Anyone else here with a bad habit of collecting up on cars? If we get these two Metros, we'll have 11 vehicles... it's getting rather hard to park them all in our driveway.
A few years ago I had the collecting habit. After a while I decided to enter the "running" ones into demolition derbys. That pretty much cleared the back yard. Wife and neighbours are happy since I stoped collecting. If only I had the place to store them I would have a few more.

Trying to break the habit myself. I am recovering, but my Parents house is only minutes from mine and has such a nice big driveway and garage I don't know what 'step' of recovery I am on, but that driveway is definately an 'enabler'.
lol we currently have 6 cars for 3 people... about to get another maybe...
a guy near me has like 6 or 7 chevy and geo trackers. all years too!. they all run and he has a wide enough driveway that he turned it into a diagnal parking lot looks kidna funny that theres 7 of the same thing lined up perfectly
That is the great thing about living in the rural mountains. No neighbors, just land to park vehicles.
A tip for those looking to collect cars - look around. When driving, if you notice a car that has grass grown up around it, it has likely been parked and you can get a great deal on it (and often times get it for no cost at all).
I have my eye on a Subaru Legacy Wagon just down the road It has been parked for many months now.
