VEHICLE STORY

So I saved up a bit of money and I was in the market for a newer more practical all around car. I wanted something that can go fast, decent fuel economy, room for friends/family and capable of getting me through the winters in North Jersey.             The Search was on with a tight budget and hopes of finding something good. I stumbled upon an ad for the car on craigslist. I checked it out and it happened to be a one-owner car, in which the owners were regular church-goers with all of the radio stations programmed to Christian channels only. I knew immediately this car was never abused and had to have it. The car's mechanics was and still is in immaculate shape regardless of the high-mileage (130,000) and there was not a broken seam to be found anywhere on the car. All of the visible gaskets were dry to the touch. There was not a single modification done to the car in any aspects. It was the ultimate "virgin" find for me. We closed a deal and I've been the owner ever since. It has received all of its current modifications very well, and it was a pleasure being able to experience the gains from each one. I'm able to speed around town reaching speeds of 140 easily and still have the ability to pick up my kids, shop, and get through the harsh North Jersey winters all while achieving just under 30 mpg. This car has been nothing but a pleasure to own and I'd like nothing more than for more people to feel the same joy.
