About “"Bud"”

In late 2005, I decided that I didn't want to subject my '66 Corvair daily driver to another winter of Pennsylvania road salt. Its floors had virtually no rust, just a little surface rust, and I wanted to keep it that way! GM was having one of its rebate promos, so I checked into how much a Cobalt would cost. The local dealers (I have three within 10 minutes!) all came in too high, but there was one about ten miles away that quoted me a price that was just too good to pass up. They pitched me the SS, with the equipment I wanted, cheaper than one of the other dealers quoted me on am LT!
I call it "Bud" because I'm a big NASCAR fan, especially the Earnhardts. Dale Earnhardt was, is, and always will be THE MAN! Dale, Jr. is currently my driver, because, after all, he is his father's son. Now, at the time, JR. drove a red Chevy SS with "Bud" painted across the hood. What else am I going to call MY red Chevy SS? (I have no plans to repaint it in his current colors!)
And for all you other NASCAR fans out there, I'm open to guesses as to what Bud's license plate "BOOG8Y 3" means.

About “mopar madness”

this is my 2004 dodge srt-4 this car is insane quick i paid in full cash $12,000 which is really cheap cause base price for a stock srt-4 is $23,000 you can get them used for $17,000-$18,000 that was the cheapest i seen then i found my baby it was sittin in some guys yard for 4 months he was hiding it so it didn't get towed cause he could not make the payments so i asked him what was owed on the car and he said $12,500 but he if you got $11,000 i will take it and the tax,tag,title was close to $1,000 so i paid $12,000 for the car total after i got my car settlement for my 1997 eclipse was and when i filled out everything the list i had on the car came out to $31,800 dollars after everything they offered me different prices
1.offer was 15,000 then 2.nd offer was $18,500 3rd offer was $22,000 dollars and i took it went and got my srt-4 and
been happy ever since i love this car you can be rolling at 50-60 and just eat the tires all the way down the street in 3rd gear with no prob this is a dangerous car for sombodys first or even a second car for some of those stupid crazy speeding through designated area with kids
