      This is an intervention.

      TCL has suffered enough. Some of the SoCal TCL'ers actually wasted many hours helping him track down and sometimes test drive cars with Vad. So for reference, these are the cars Vad is definitely NOT interested in buying, despite what he tells you otherwise. Do not feed Vad's addiction. Ignore his painful plea for more leads of high mileage used car of questionable history and spotty records.

      Like how 90% of TCL says they'll buy that car when it's relesed then don't end up buying it?
      Easy like Sunday Morning.

      no, not really. Like someone who posts a specific and attainable car but never delivers. Again, I like VadGTI but my god he needs to just buy one of these damn cars, otherwise just call them CLFOTD which is what they really seem to be.

      That's not going to stop him from posting. It's a viscous cycle. He bought the e30 M3 nigerian edition only about a year ago.

      why did he buy that e30 m3 he never drives it, and doesn't his mom's house hold a ton of his cars?

      he needs to clean his windshield too.

      Wait didn't he move on to chase Lambo's in traffic? Like a Boss?

      I like it. He thinks out loud and promotes discussion. There's not a thing wrong with that. You wouldn't understand this because you're a part of the grumpy smurf brigade that hates everything fun and spends most of their time either trolling or posting negative things.

      I like to talk things through with people who like to talk about cars. There couldn't be a more perfect place for this kind of discussion, among the many others. If you're not interested in the content, feel free to avoid them, or block him altogether. I've blocked Saintor and a couple others recently, and that's made my experience that much better.
