jennarattie Since I know I have a few of you car guys out there following me, particularily you JDM guys, I need some advice ! My boyfriend is trying to make a decision about 2 damn cars and now he says "it's up to you, Jenna. What do you think I should do ?" Let's say you have a choice between 2 Preludes. You've been able to take a good look at the first one on the ground and on a hoist and it needs a new motor, new tranny, new clutch, new suspension, better rims and tires, has oil leaks all over the place, burns oil like mad when you VTEC it, needs a new exhaust, needs back brakes, needs some body work and needs a few other little things here and there. But, the person selling it to you will sell it to you for under $1000. Now, ludey #2, slightly better looking, needs a little less body work, but needs a serpentine belt, water pump and back brakes like yesterday, plus a new exhaust, and upon checking out the used vehicle info pack, you find out it's a rebuild that was wrote off in an accident and marked for salvage at one point. And now you notice that the hood doesn't sit quite straight and the body panels don't look quite right. Nevermind the fact that you aren't able to get it on a hoist to look for other underlying problems. The owner wants $2200 for it. What would you do ? I personally want to go with Ludey #1 because, for the most part, we know what we're getting into when it comes to it. We don't know what else is wrong with Ludey #2 because we aren't able to get an in depth look at it. So would you spend the approx $1000 and buy the fucking raft mobile that's going to need a couple grand in repairs ? Or do you spend $2200 on the one that looks a little better but God knows what else is wrong with it ? #honda #prelude #hondaprelude #5thgen #lude #ludelove #carnation #jdm #caradvice #help #5thgenprelude #vroom #carhelp #carguys #mechanic 15min

jo21sh04 This is what happens when you lower your car and don't get an alignment. My front wheels didn't look out of camber by eyeballing, but the inside shoulders are worn to the cords. New tires will be in on Tuesday. Not driving anywhere until then so I don't have a blowout. 2h
