      and I believe the S60R is his only other vehicle. Obviously 2 is not enough for one person as we here in TCL should understand. He merely lives out that desire in a more public way, hence all the posts.

      He posts CLFOTD threads all the time that he clearly has no intention of buying.

      These threads I highlighted are all the one that he seriously considered purchasing. He exchanged email or calls with the seller and test drove most of these cars.

      I sent Jerry_HEAVEN to look at it. It had weird tree sap on the hood and roof. In retrospect, that was a stupid car to not buy.

      You obviously don't have the VadGTI extension enabled on your browser. It automatically adds 'CLFOTD' to all his thread titles.

      This thread made me realize this:

      Vad isn't a person, Vad is all of us. It's our way of vicariously living recklessly.

      PS, isn't this just a thread that will feed his ego anyways?

      I don't know if an intervention is the best thing.
      Since Vad's daydreams seem to drive half the traffic on TCL, it might implode if he is stopped.

      Of course, it might be for the betterment of society as a whole if that happens...

      Weird, there was a yellow Euro package one near me for a similar price. Has the SVT Focus market taken a poop? I want a 5 door one.
      But I'd kill for a Euro pack one...

      He (my boss) DDs it, so it's mechanically sound. I can recall it being in the shop once in the last year or so.

      The AC doesn't work, but that's typical for 80s BMWs (and especially M cars)

      He wanted to buy a ****ty volvo. It made sense at the time to sell one of two cars in the country for a depreciating bucket of crapola.

      What else was he to do? Ditch the salvaged E36 M3 that sat at his mother's house for 3 years?

      You have no idea how much p u s s y he's gotten since he got the volvo. He now has like 7 cats in his one bedroom apartment.
