It's Been 5 Years?!?!

I feel like I need to re-introduce myself. According to the website, I'm one month short of 5 years since my last login.

Nothing has changed much in the 5 years with regards to my vehicles, I still have a 2001 Corolla and 1999 4Runner. I plan on getting a new vehicle, but it might be several months as we are trying to get the financial situation sorted first and maybe get a better deal when new model years start rolling out. So for now, I'm left with modding my existing vehicles (which should have been done a long time ago! *hides in bushes*)

Here goes nothing!

Jeff

Bad time to shop for new cars or used cars if price is important. All the prices are inflated by supply chain problems.

What's the plan with the existing vehicles?

Just keep the existing vehicles going, as now is the wrong time to be in the market.

I keep saying now is the time to fix up and sell those extra vehicles people have laying around (including myself).

An old man in my mother's neighborhood deals with used cars, yet AFAIK he was still not able to get rid of a red 1st-generation Audi A3 which has been around for at least 3 years. Even his son tried to sell me that
