Re: Daily Driving a Hooptie Fleet

Normally it's $25 to run a car through each time. With a big seller, they may have a special deal, but this is a little credit union with no other cars listed in the auction run list. So, hell I suspect they've spent at least a couple of hundred dollars on no sale fees. If I really wanted it, I'd re...

Re: What did you do to/with your 996 today?

I squeegeed some of the standing water out of the garage - past the 996's rear tires. Does that count? Fscking rain. Does it count? In a word Nope.gif And, you live in San Diego while the rest of us are staring down winter like Lynyrd Skynyrd on the dance floor with another man's woman staring down...

Re: Daily Driving a Hooptie Fleet

In a stunning reversal of fortunes, my wife stole the Durango from me, dammit!! She's been driving the Acadia since last week, and I got the Durango Tuesday afternoon. Today, I took both SUVs to the mechanic next door to the auto museum for oil changes. They finished the Durango first, and I let her...

Re: Daily Driving a Hooptie Fleet

Although it is stupid, I took a little satisfaction from both of those auction results considering I offered to buy them for what I believe was more than they'll ever bring at auction. In the end, I'm better off with the Acadia and the Durango. So gasoline must be cheap in Kansas...? Yeah, the Jagu...

Re: Daily Driving a Hooptie Fleet

Good to see that you are diversifying from your legal work. Opening a car rental agency may not be the line of work I would choose. :lol: I've never saw anyone actually own durange or Acadia. I see them only on rental lots. Scott Kilmer would rip you a new one too. Never heard of Scotty Kilmer befo...

They said that higher end models will have 600 hp flat plane crank V8, and 1,000 hp AWD hybrid. So top model will basically be a corvette Veyron. Can't imagine what kind of numbers it will post.

Re: Daily Driving a Hooptie Fleet

So, the 2 cars I tried to buy last week, the 2013 Jag XJL Portfolio and the 2014 JGC Summit have both been re-cycled through auctions since then. The Jag went through the Houston auction again last night. I had offered $14,000 on Friday, but they never got back to me. The high bid last night was $12...

Re: Daily Driving a Hooptie Fleet

So, I got the Durango at the auction yesterday. They had detailed it prior to the auction and had done an inspection and gave it a "ride & drive" guarantee, so I had to pay about $1,500 more for it than I anticipated. But, it was in better condition than I thought it was from my initial look at it o...

Re: Daily Driving a Hooptie Fleet

My favorite option (and one the Explorer didn't have) is the power liftgate. I just like hitting the button on the remote as I'm 20 yards away, and watching that tailgate automatically open. It's not unlike hitting the door popper button on a Lambo and watching the scissor doors pop up. Yesterday I...

Re: Daily Driving a Hooptie Fleet

So, this morning I run out to the Adesa dealer's auction, which is where I got the Acadia last week. It's smaller than the Manheim auction, but still runs over 1,000 cars through every Tuesday. I've become interested in Cadillacs. (pauses for the laughter to subside) They've got a 2016 CTS-V with 36...
