We bought this fine Vehicle on craigslist for a meager price of $1600. Drove it home with no brakes and handed the keys over to Walters Foreign Car $1400 later I had a whole new brake system and new exhaust.

The next intelligent thing we could think of was to quit our jobs and plan for an adventure of a lifetime...
