    i'm sad...

    So today i was helping my cousin look for a new car at a local car shop. The owner is really nice and works with young guys like ourselves. We got done talking to the fella about an eighties Fifth Avenue and as im climbing back in the Ram i look up the hill and there she was. I could tell right off the bat it was a 67-68 fury, just couldnt tell the trim. I walked up and saw it was a VIP and my heart almost flew out of my chest. I looked at the hood emblem to see if it was a 383 and it sure was. I went back down to the garage and asked the old man about it. He told me it was his own personal car and he bought it new..stored it in 1980 and hasnt had it out since. I asked him what the number on her was and was expecting something around 2000, 1800 at least. He tells me 800 dollars would take it home tonight........ Earlier this summer i chose to take the whole summer off rather than working and therefore can not buy this old gem. Body was mint and it had 49,000 on the odometer. Interior looked like it did when it rolled off the line..absolutley perfect..beaded seats and all...I dont think ive ever been so depressed...

    Get a loan or borrow money from a family member, something. If this car is as straight and as mint as you claim they're selling for 10k+. $800 would be stealing this thing. Better yet, where did you see it? I have no interest in a Fury but I do have an interest in flipping it for a $9200 profit.

    It's so old, I'm surprised the odor lingers

    No kidding. What's wrong with knocking off a Stop-N-Rob for the "$800"?

    That is an absolute win-win:

    1. You could end up with the munny.
    2. If the 3 am heist goes sideways and you get involved in a police chase with your beater/stolen car while you're drunk, shirtless, and smoking a cigarette, and end up crashed in a trailer court, you'll still make it to a World's Dumbest Criminals episode eventually, thus cementing your immortality just like Lief Garrett.

    What could possibly go wrong here?
