    well, i am deadlocked.
    bought my 2nd gen from a stealership (and dad paid way too much for it) but bought the 5th gen private sale through a PA member. :/
    should i do a egotzm and pool in previous vehicle purchases?

    if so: (in order of purchase)
    - 81 toyoto corona - private (bought off my aunt - $500)
    - 86 lude - dealership (too much - but dad paid so i dont care)
    - 79 ford fairmont - private (bought off my brother - $300. only used for 2 months while 2nd gen was off the road. still own)
    - 99 lude - private (bought off cartoon in sydney)

    so i guess i should vote private, 3/4.
    A completed modified car is an ever changing goal that can never truly be achieved.
    CLICK to see my progress towards this impossible end.

    i said dumpster. i bought it private sale but payed close to nothing for it because it was smashed up, blown engine and i needed something to work on at home for experience. i ended up getting it roadworthied and rego'd only to stack it 2 weeks later. a month after that and i finally fixed it...again... and its pretty reliable.still a working progress though

    thats why i said dumpster

    hmm mines a tricky one.

    i got my 4g from the auctions but i made my offer before it went to auction and it got accepted by the owner but technically i bought the car from the auction place who are a registered car dealer...

    .. so is that a private sale, auctions or a dealer?

    Indicating when no one is around is like talking to yourself
    I dunno where the u came from, probably the "U" key on the keyboard but im skeptical

    both my cars have been private sales. if i could afford a brand new car, maybe i'd get a demo car from a dealership. thats what my rents did, bought it practically brand new (had 3,000 on the clock) and got it for much cheaper.
