so yeah... crashed my '90 civic DX, which I'm not too happy about
it happened when I was driving too fast, and it was raining out (heavily) and a certain ramp I was traveling onto (covered exit between highways) was actually wet inside, which I didn't expect. so my car started to slide out of control, so I thought I might be able to drift it back into control... that didn't work out... I struck the left wall at medium force, and it threw my car to the other side and crashed into the wall
so my car was pretty much totaled, in the front. got rid of it since I live in an apartment, can't keep a car parked for longer than 3 months is what the owners said
so in the market, I've been looking into a 1994 Nissan Sentra LE-2door (GA16DE) . they have good high end gas mileage, and pretty nice low end.
20 minutes later...
I just looked at the car. the guy who brought it asked me to drop a $200 deposit if I wanted him to take it off the market (yeah right :P) seemed kind of fishy that he never kept paperwork for all the repairs and maintenance on the car (every car owner who hopes to eventually sell a car should keep ALL paperwork on it), and he never changed the spark plug wires. he's asking for $2500, but I'm unsure if I want to pay that much. the front tires are really worn, the back tires not so. there is probably 3-4mm of tread on the front tires
so I might negotiate the price a bit, depending on what the mechanic says. speaking of which, he started to act really funny when I asked if I could take it into a mechanic, but he said "as long as you pay for it..." so I will take it into the mechanic. the engine block looks kind of dirty, like it has a lot of corrosion on it. there is also what appears to be an oil leak on the bottom side of the block. I appreciate if anybody would throw in their
