Re: looking at a restored 36 ford coupe

My reasoning for buying a car:
The actual cost is the difference between what you buy it for and what you sell it for. Let's say you bought the coupe for $30000 and drove it for 5 years.Then you...

Re: A little eye surgery

Re: Santa Science Spoiler-Off Topic
