    If he had 3 import cars then he would need to make repais as well as all the extra maintenance.
    Why not just have one vehicle?

    Well, if u get 3 german cars then you're gonna be under them for weeks.

    He's probably gonna get rid of a few of those cars.

    there's a story behind why I have 3 cars....

    I've had my saturn coupe since 97, and it's great and all, but theres no room to carry anything more than groceries. I recently moved, and to rent a uhaul truck and trailer to carry all my stuff and my coupe, it wouldve cost me ~$1200 plus fuel, so I bought a 1987 ford bronco for $1500 and used that to carry all my stuff and rented a trailer for about $120

    The bronco made it here, and then it sorta died. So I went back to starkville and got my coupe and brough it up here. The plan was to sell both the bronco and the coupe and get a saturn station wagon since that would give me the gas mileage of the coupe and the room of the bronco.

    Well, being that I have poor impulse control, my dumb *** went and bought a saturn wagon for $950 because I thought I knew what was wrong with it and could fix it for $8. Long story short, the wagon needs $2000 worth of work just to get it to pass emissions here.

    In the meantime, the bronco and the coupe have been in the paper and in a trader magazine, and I've had no calls (most likely because I have a Mississippi phone number, and I'm pretty far away from MS at this point so people dont call because they dont recognize the area code). I've already spent about $95 trying to sell my various vehicles.

    Yesterday I took what parts I needed to fix up my coupe (AC compressor, O2 sensors, etc) off the wagon swapped them over. Long and short of that part is that new parts didnt fix the stuff wrong with the coupe.

    Anyway, this is my stupid tax. I'm going to lose a significant amount of money (relative to my current situation) on these idiot things I did to try to save me some money.

    then he would need to rebuild the engine when the sludge problem kills it.

    Auto-rx can take care of the sludge problem. do a treatment every 80K miles, and change your oil regularly. no problemos...

    Well, things have died down, I kinda know what my bills and paychecks look like each month, and I've fixed the one car to the point that it's almost good as new. Time to get that number down below $30,000!
