    Salutes with tear in eye. Anyway, to answer your question, there are many good websites to use to buy cars here, but personally, I use AutoTempest to purchase cars. It searches all over the country (continental USA only) for cars. They are usually pretty cheap too. You're lucky, Australia seems to have pretty lax import laws from what I can find. HOWEVER, US export laws are a bit fuzzy. You would need to have the title signed over to you, and then you would have to present said title to Customs. I don't think you have to be a US citizen to export a car, but I am not certain. Also, to find cars closest to you, use the postal (ZIP) code 90001 (Los Angeles, California). Granted, this is only if you want to get a car in the US, but I hope it helps. It has been a pleasure for this community to have you here for three years.

    What a beauty for only $1,500! As someone who has worked on a F-250 with the almost the exact same engine, I do have a few words of advice, though. Check out the spark plugs and the ignition coils. Otherwise, it is a bulletproof engine. Good luck with her!

    Yup, I grew up around these motors. Assuming it's had the plugs replaced with the 9 thread redesigned plug and doesn't have the original 4 thread it should be fine.

    I've seen 2-valve engines go 600,000+ miles. Too bad the 3-valve ruined that reputation.

    Currently in a Bio lecture, but Bio is boring, so I'm here instead, on GeForce Now, playing Beam with a keyboard ;).

    Dunno if anyone remembers me here
    but i'm still alive

    Since covid 19 i've been spending most of my time on discord server's and etc being *slightly* social.

    Mental health has been a little bit of a dumpster fire, fairly sure i'm autistic and possibly adhd too, fun :p
    But chatting online has been pretty decent

    Any of the old BeamNG lot, who've been active through 2014-20 (i guess) still active?

    excuse me if i spell any of these wrong
    vmlinuz, sixsixsevenseven,ajowen (uk guy with beamng logo as pfp), rob gracie, red robin i see is still active :p (triton v8 pfp)

    How you all doing?

    I should probably hang around here a little more :p I'm doing a degree now so finding the time to do mods and etc is prob not going to be easy, but still hang around here from time to time.

    Yeah, I started rebuilding a Saab's engine. 0/10 do not recommend. What have you done recently?

    Oh, I have a lot of bad stuff that's been happening to me this week that I'm trying to get rid of. Body problems, depression, anxiety, etc.

    I had depression and anxiety in my early teens as well. It sucked, I wish nothing but the best for you. I also hope that you solve your other issues as well. Keep your head up, it only gets better from here!

    I'm 17 (as of November 1st, 2021). 2021 has been very bad for me. Btw, do you mind if we have a private chat?

    Palmeiras has just won the Libertadores Cup for the third time and, as a soccer fan and a lifelong palmeirense, I am very happy, hahahaha.

    Just ended up seeing this video for the first time. The Toy Story music is what really got me.
