I don't break stuff, besides most cars I have had were repaired and sold and I made a profit off of them.

Examples-

1993 plymouth laser bought for 200, sold for 300, no repairs done
1988 S10 blazer 4x4 bought for 300, sold for 400, timing chain was fixed

As you can see, I tend to trade cars off and sell them, i really like doing it, it keeps me busy and I make profits.

Every car that I've resold I've done so for a profit, minus my sentra (trade in). Lost $100, i owned the car for a year, did no repairs to it and put 10,000 miles on it. Big whoop, haha.

When I get my own place someday I'm going to have 4-5 non running cars all at once I bet... If I don't pace myself I'll just keep grabbing more and more projects.

I remember that you told me that you thought the Caprice was too big and too boaty for you and the Bonnie was better suited for you. That was a sedan, the waggy will be even bigger and more boaty. No, it'* not worth it, save your money, you're throwing your money around. Save it for a nice Bonnie instead of 300-400 rustbuckets
My thoughts exactly...

You remind me of someone with A.D.D.

Not at all, they help pay my salary.

Just annoying to see them make bad decisions...

not worth it. Just save your money.

Making $100 is not a real big profit on a car when you factor in getting it back to your place, the time you put in to clean it and the time to list it.

I used to buy cars like that and did fairly well on the could I did, but found out that without the right stuff (truck/trailer/etc) it isn't worth it. I never bought a car that I didn't think I could make twice what I paid for it. It seems easy, then one day, you end up with a 89 sunbird GT Convertible in your garage that no one wants.

Just save your money and buy a good car. It'* worth it much more than buying cheap cars and selling right away.

So you're selling the Cavy already? I missed something.
