      "Tell them to go suck on a shrimp."




      The first 8 minutes is "traveling to Japan and related silliness".... so jump to 8 minutes which is the start of the day of the auction in Japan.

      Cool Nissan van.

      That's how I'm going to describe Japan from now on

      Awesome video, thanks for that!

      Have you heard of this new thing called google?
      You can type something in the search window - like "mightycarmods" - and search for web sites and even videos.
      It's the new thing.

      If they plan to resell it in the future, that info could be used against them.

      I'd say the shipping was at least 1/2 the total cost.

      uhhh what car did they buy? They were talking about the Forrester STI but then the other guy said "but then something caught my eye" and they were about 15 cars down the row from the STI. They never said what they bought.

      At about the 20 minute mark he says they could go "VIP", I thought it was pronounced "bippu"?

      Truthfully I've never discussed it with anyone where I'd have to pronounce it. I suppose I'd probably say VIP though just because then they'd know what I'm talking about.

      Crosspost from another forum on it's pronounciation
