      I assume you have the title. Jump on clist and do a search for "junk car" and you will find a number of tow/wrecking services who will come grab your car and junk it for you. Call a few and go with...

      Hey that looks great. I think the SII without the kit is about the coolest looking car of the 80's. I need to find my fourth (and hopefully final??) one soon.

      Find me a sub $2000 7/940 with an intact leather driver's seat. I would love a clean cloth interior for mine.

      To OP, congrats! My n/a wagon I got for $200 just crossed...

      In Berlin those massive Mercedes are super popular with hip/bohemian/hippy 20-something Germans.

      I admit that, as the kind of person who has thought about living in an old school bus before, I...

      I probably spend about $900 a year on the Volvo which I acquired for $200 3.5 years ago. All the maintenance this year was on stuff that's been put off for way too long. Currently at 302k miles and...

      You have practically no idea what you're talking about.

      Anyway, the grass is always greener. Volvo people install USDOT sealed beams because they "look cool" in Scandi-land. People are weird.

      I charge straight time at $40 an hour. There are too many variables (especially in the rust belt) for me to go trying to beat the book every time. Even charging straight time the people I help out...

      Pretty disingenuous of this foundation to have in their FAQ a question that's like, "what about solar/wind power?" and their answer is like, "unless you have a sailboat wind isn't taking you...

      No way does Mercedes let VW bring this over. Plus, I drove the Mercedes version 11k km around Europe on a tour. It's a boring commercial vehicle. And you know what? The auto Sprinter is way nicer to...

      If you go the SDL route steer clear of the 350. They don't call that motor "rod-bender" for no reason. Also be aware of the problems with the early castings of the cylinder head on the OM603.

      It really is a great action movie. And one of the best car/roadtrip movies made in a long time, too (but in a weird, harrowing, violent way).

      Now I'm not certain, but I feel like DPFs and stuff will be looked at in 20 years the way we view air-pumps and vacuum line labyrinths and so on from the 70's. I don't know what would replace them...

      Very true. I just drove a band from Norway on their week-long tour and they were absolutely shocked at how awful roads in the US are. Having been to every country in Scandinavia I can say that their...
