car junkie with commitment issues

iflip. Cheap, fun, low investment = happy motoring

I flip cars and that’s all i do, maybe I like the hunt more then the kill?? no, I just want a car that does what it should. I liked the wagon for 3 solid months, same with the cressida…building cheap, neat, unique cars was seeming to make me happy. but when you spend 3-4 times the money and end up with more problems then the beaters gave you is just lame.

here’s some cool pics of cool, fun, unique cars that make me happy to look at. altho some are into the $$ range.

the ae86 (85-87 corolla gts):

the EG civic HB:

the previa van:

the starlet and te72 corollas:

the vw van:

a well done ra65 celica:

The classic skyline:

a sexy silvia (240sx):

the miata:

the civic ef:

    Love that old Volks pick-up van. Imagine it with a new paint job and some sharp wheels. Soooo neat, it could be.

    paint is for rich people, totally over rated. this “patina” style of leaving the body the way you found it has become quite popular, mostly because the hot rod scene all became about money and fiber glass kit cars with corvette motors, and people who’s car wasn’t perfect or worth $60,000 + weren’t allowed into most shows. so they started having there own show’s and has become quite the scene of real “hot rods” as they were really built back in the day

      if u need a corolla or u must have it, come to puerto rico and ull c a crap load of them everywere. or another thing u could do is go to: “” , and ull c some of them for sell.
      good luck with the findings, and also if u wanna live somewere else were skylines are allowed in the streets, puerto rico allows skylines on the streets, they arent ilegal over here.

    Those wheels are “sprint hart cp-f”, kinda hard to find and I don’t think you can get them noew anymore. Rota makes a cheap knock-off called the track R as well.

    actually all the jdm cars are legal here in canada as long as they are 15 years old… so we see a lot of them around… plenty of corolla’s around too. but I know there’s more down there for sure

    that levin looks good but the liftback levin looks way better. And the skyline … no words to describe what I’m feeling when I see it. I wish I could set up my starlet like the track one, but it’s a long journey. I completley agree with josh about cheap, fun, performance. A car was meant to be driven, hook’em up and floor it. good blog, this one is.

      Thanks for the comment, i really appreciate it.
      I think many people loose the reality of it all…. there’s just soo much money thrown at cars these days, but for those of us that can’t afford it get flack for not using the “best” available parts or using knock off wheels. it should be about having fun, credit card debt isn’t fun, building a car to please someone else isn’t fun either. you just gotta educate yourself as you go and build it the way you want to, and above all HAVE FUN!!

  10. Most of the houses kitchens kitchen renovation are switched with the appearance of a home, you should get the professional touch of Panda kitchen cabinets
    for many years. This generation had to work
    hard for its money, however, feel that you’ll lose out on that personalized attention to detail.
    This little stylistic change can inspire a whole new look with a fresh coat of paint.
    So, what are the materials that used in making furniture.
    So I’m actually going to be renovating the current cabinets in your kitchen.
