About “#Da Beater”

Here's my good ole beater. This car has served me well. Had for over a year, paid 500 bucks, money well spent... Daily driver.

About “LandYacht”

I bought this car in September 2007 for $900 ($1,200 asking price). The main selling point was the (3800) engine. It has approximately 187,500miles on it and some "Michigan Rust" forming along the bottom. It's really light weight for such a large engine.
