    Well since, most (all) of you have never seen a post of mine, I just wanted to know what kind of shit box car you have that you can always rely on. Baicaly, my 86 nova (stand by) was deemed too expensive to repair, my 66 Impala is still waiting for paint and a radiator, and the 72 type I bug hasn't ran since Oct. (yet i'm still paying ins. on it) and my rex is still waiting for the engine transplant that has been sitting in by garage since june/03. \

    I have been walking to work for (read: getting a ride most of the time) for four months and need to get another beater, so WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

    I am not an English/grammer person...so please don't freak.

    I'm not rich enough to have a beater...otherwise I'd get another Escort, 2nd generation (91-96) Either an LX or GT 5 speed...preferably the GT because I already know everything about the 1.8L 16v dohc engine. :)

    My cousin had a 2nd gen escort GT and it went pretty good, so thats a possibility....other than the fact than my Dad, Brother, and I have been rockin' the novas/corollas since I have been driving and have since run out of parts. Baisically, I'm looking for cars that a somewhat reliable and are a dime a dozen.

    Maybe what I'm saying is a little misleading, --does anyone else do the thing where you buy one kind of older car that is somewhat reliable and just buy more of them for parts cause it;s cheaper?
    My next choice is the 90ish geos and toyotas because they're fuel injected and somewhat the same as the older corolla's and nova's/

    Well, It's not that I am rich by all means, it's just I'd rather buy something into the ground that actually fix one of my so-called "babys"
