    Bad news on the '73 Moonhawk. After further assessment of the car to plan out exactly what I want to do with it, I have discovered too many areas of concern to continue on with this project.

    I feel that this car is just too far gone for any work put into it to be worth it. The floor pans are rotted out, the frame is in horrible condition, and the suspension has been sketchily modified for use on a dirt oval. Not to mention the fact that every bolt head is rounded off or covered in Northeastern US rust. That being said, this POS will be for sale. Shoot me an offer, there are still some useful parts.

    With the Moonhawk offloaded to @Tuner from America (best of luck with that car), I am down to only three cars and I'm possibly in search of another project o_O. I am really starting to regret letting the Bluebuck go, as that car was dialed in and just perfect in every way. However, I was craving something new and now my thoughts are starting to drift into the realm of a cheap I-Series build or maybe even a 200BX. Nevertheless, my eyes are still set on some sort of V8 muscle car as a primary choice.

    Me: Wow were finally out of Ohio and in Indiana.
    *Goes into car and pays for the gas*
    *Gives son his drink and I drive back onto the highway doing 90MPH in the left lane*

    The 200BX is a blast to drive, in my opinion. Pretty cheap, too. Absolute garbage in the snow, and a lot rusted out here in the northern states, though.

    I'd love one just as a back roads driver type of car, but like you said, rust is the silent killer in the Northeastern US.

    after fixing the etk w, i get a call from the fpd. apparently one of their roamers has been damaged, so i pack up and go to the police station. it turned out 1 of its wheels was crooked, so i was luckily able to fix that.
    screenshot_2019-10-28_16-19-04.png
    i was going home, when i saw a silhouette of a car in the bushes.
    screenshot_2019-10-24_21-48-14.png
    i decided to take a look, and what i found amazed me.
    screenshot_2019-10-24_21-48-59.png
    it was an old burnside, once part of firwoods police fleet, now, standing there. it was damaged for sure, and the paint had yellowed, but otherwise it seemed fine. i took it to the lot and took a look at the engine. it was old, dirty and rusty, but i got it to work somewhat. it shut off after a few seconds, but there was life. i immediately called the fpd, and told them that i found an old burnside. after an officer took a look at the old car, he said it shouldnt go to waste, and asked me too take a look and see if i can get it back to its former glory. i thought of my etk, which i still needed to repair, but i decided to go through with fixing it.

    I picked up a new car thanks to @Cory5503 after I picked up my newly rebuilt truck. I don't plan todo much with it except start a local dirt racing championship as I own a lot of private backroads and now I have a ex-dirt racing car that doesn't do all that bad. You don't really need a lot of power to have fun as my Moonhawk's 244 Cui I6 does just fine if you drive fast-er, The car's starting to rust in some places and is almost disintegrated in others but it'll last 'till spring or even summer if it's not abused during winter... which it probably will be.

    I decided to go run some dirt roads with a few friends today in my Roamer. Everything started out great, however on the way home at the end of the day I passed my own wheel and tire going down route 1...
    screenshot_2019-10-28_19-24-49.png
    As the front left area of the vehicle dropped abruptly, I had to think quick and put the 5-something thousand pound Roamer into a ditch on three wheels in order to avoid a worse situation.
    screenshot_2019-10-28_19-26-02.png
    After a quick roadside inspection, it was clear about what had happened: the stamped-steel upper control arm had completely rusted through and split in half, leaving the knuckle attached to only the lower control arm, in which the lower ball joint simply popped out. This sent the wheel, tire, hubcap, brake rotor, brake caliper, and knuckle, as well as a partial upper control arm into the air and past my vehicle. I called Firwood Flatbeds Inc. to pick this shitbox up and 3 hour later, they arrived.
    screenshot_2019-10-28_19-34-15.png
    Once home, I was extremely stressed, losing yet another vehicle from the fleet. This put me in a tough situation because the Roamer was going to be my winter beater, after discovering how amazing the Grand Marshall that I originally purchased as one was. I rolled the Roamer into its new resting spot for an undetermined amount of time.
    screenshot_2019-10-28_19-35-17.png
    Now, I'm in crunch time. With the winter weather approaching withing the coming month, I need a vehicle, preferably 4WD and V8, that's able to pull trailers in the winter for my line of work. Yikes...

    Today I heading down to my old warehouse located behind the bank. As I open the the door, I realized that I left all my other cars inside the shop for the past few years.
    The first car I own is my modified 1990 200BX Type-LS that has the turbocharged 3.0l I6 engine under the hood.
    And lastly, the D15 V8 4WD Extended Cab Adventure pickup truck which is I gonna sell later.

    Got a job yesterday at a small cafe (lots of karens of course)
    The LeGran decided that this would be the day that I would have to go to the local auto shop.
    Battery is I don't know how old and it won't start.
    Now I'll be late for my first working day.
    This is a direct reference to when our family Chrysler Town and Country's battery decided to die and we were late to my Taekwondo event.

    I'm browsing the internet, trying to find a cheap winter project car, for when I can't go many places. At this stage I have realised that I will end up with too many cars, and have gotten a warehouse near my home. Specifically, I am looking at an older sedan: A LeGran, Pessima, I-Series or the likes.
