as some of you may know I recently picked up a 1986 four door sedan. well on the day I went to get it it kind of caught on fire :hot: :banghead:. well I got it home after putting the fire out of course and got to really looking at what all was destroyed by the fire and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the damage was very minimal to point that the plastic valve cover wasn't even scorched, the same can not be said for the vacuum lines on top of it which were completely destroyed, but they are replaceable. from what I can tell about the car is that at one point in it's life it was in a front end collision and the body work done to the fenders was not that good as the bondo that was put on it is more than a 16th of an inch thick and has started cracking and coming off other than that and a ding in the drivers front door the car has a very good body on it. so without further ado here is the car I have dubbed Fire Starter.

well a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to sell her to him and I am considering it simply because I can't really afford a third car on my insurance. oh and he likes Eagles.

Call your company and ask them if they give a discount on multiple cars. I actually pay less on 4 cars than I did on 3!

I already get a multicar discount but they just raised my insurance by $90 for a six month period for two cars so i'm afraid to see what it will be for three.
