OK, why not

I'll be 34 in 2 weeks, bought the GVR4 in '96 in stock condition with 55K miles on the odo for $11.5K cash, got married in '98, and have a 2 years old daughter right now to give me the big hug everyday I got back home from the shop. I have bought and sold a bunch of 1G and 2G DSM through out the year, always the AWD kind, but have never think about seriously selling the GVR4. This one stays!

35yr old.. bought 756/2000 in 2004. It was and is a pos. Ive thought about selling it and even posted here I think twice... but I cant do it. I'm $3k in the hole with this car and know I wont get that for it. Now that I'm doing better financially (thanks to me working almost all the OT) I pulling out the stock motor with almost 200,000 of abused miles on her and either doing a basic stage one build or buying a good conditioned low miles long block and addressing the other mechanical issues : CV's, shocks, struts, springs, oil pump, water pump, and at the end of this yr going to get her prepped for fresh paint.

No scrap yard for this baby... she may be a money pit, but she's my money pit; besides my daughter (she's 4) keeps asking me "daddy, why don't you ever drive your car?" to which I answer " cause she makes me mad" LOL

It seems like everytime someone does this age question that all the ages seem to be going down, except for a few of us.

My hat is off to you. Too much of my friends got free bad ass cars from there parents like scubies, evo's, and what not, its good to hear of someone younger person that has bought their own.

I'm 30 with a wife and 3 sons. I wanted a GVR4 since 2000 when I bought the 98 galant. Finally found one for sale here last year and snatched her right up. Before I found it I had a turbo laser for 3 years.

I'm like...old and stuff. I just bought it because the dealer told me it was a Buick and I got distracted by Matlock on the showroom TV. Then aliens probed me and made me take it to the track. I didn't even know this town had a track.
