    What got me into the site was my first 2000 V6. Lots of modification went into the car. I ended up selling it to a 16/17 year old who learned to drive stick on his way home. The car ended up at a junk yard the year after... sucks

    The 2000 Mustang GT with a bunch of Cobra parts I sold to a 16 year old girl. Her boyfriend and her were involved in an accident and she said the car was identical to the one in which her boyfriend ended up dying in. I found the car for sale a year later smashed to pieces with frame damage for $2500 with a side impact. I offered $1000 to buy it back and she said no.

    I sold my V6 to one of the local storm trackers for News9. He lived in Moore and when the big EF5 blew through there several years ago now, it got turned into a Dr Pepper can. Kind of a fitting end to it here in Oklahoma.

    Last year I did try to track down my '72 Chevy Cheyenne I had from when I was 16. I had held on to it to better restore it, but while it was in storage at my parents, it was in a fire, and was very badly damaged. At the time my parents forced me to move it cause they were tired of it sitting in there yard since they didn't want it in the shop smelling the way it did (mind you their negligence is the reason if caught fire), so I was forced to sell it thinking it would probably be too costly to ever repair. I sold it to a father/son duo from Southern Missouri who wanted to either rebuild it, or use it as a donor for the sons first car. So last year since I'm in a position to afford to maybe rebuilt it, I reached out to them (saved their contact info in case I ever got this hair up my ass) but all their numbers/email weren't valid anymore.

    I'll probably just end up buying another one and taking it to someone to restore at some point.

    Looking back it was a tad too long.

    Ran the VIN of my former '13 TDI (VW Buyback), and it shows that it was crushed.

    Here's my old car. He's running in the low 10's with it now. Turbo 4V.

    I'd like to find out where/what happened to my old mustang but I don't think I have any paperwork or contact info for it.
