    Nothing special here...

    [​IMG]

    2006 Lexus ES-330, bought when it was ten years old and had 129,000 miles on it. Drives good, reliable as a hammer.

    It had a regular title when I bought it, but should have a salvage title now. We had a big hailstorm over a year ago, and parts of the car look like a golf ball. But you can't see it from 15 feet away, so I elected to keep it even though my insurer totaled it.

    I say it "should" have a salvage title, because the state of North Carolina still has not issued the salvage title. I understand that they probably got a massive influx of paperwork requiring them to issue a huge number of salvage titles, but dang, it's been over 15 months now. I noticed that at annual registration time for both of the last two cycles, they have charged me a fee based on the "non-totaled" value, though.

    Why do governments do that sort of thing? Because they can...

    Its honestly shocking how nice a car this is for what is basically an economy car with lots of bells and whistles - Mazda 3 Hatchback. So fun to drive, comfy, nice stereo. I keep my car clean inside (as a drunk mom said on Halloween night, "of course I spill my drink and get glitter all over the cleanest car in Petaluma") but almost never outside. My side view mirrors actually have accumulate spider web dripping down because I've drive so little since March (I've filled up my gas tank only twice in 4. pics from when I bought this almost 2 years ago. Tsims has the red version I think.

    The element is not my daily but still regular driver. 17 years old / 188,000 miles with original clutch. Still going strong.

    We have some work to do on the one on the left. The one on the right is up for restoration. Covid 19 has slowed us down however.

    If there's enough room in the rear storage area, this might make a good "next car" for me in my new gig. I have recently qualified as a licensed home inspector in North Carolina, so I need to carry a fair bit of equipment. The bulkiest is three ladders, all of which are collapsible to a large degree. None of them is, when collapsed/folded, any longer than four feet long.

    The bigger problem for me, I suspect, would be access. I've read that the driver's seat can be hard to get into if you are not lithe/limber. I'm not.

    I think everyone knows what a 1999 Mk1 Ford Focus looks like by now.
    Have owned it for 18 years,clear coat is peeling off the bonnet/hood ,and it's got a lot of dents,scratches and moss growing out of the windows and one light has turned yellow,oh,and it's been leaking since November 2017.

    I couldn't fir in a 914. I tried. At least this Volvo shooting break has room for gear, and better looks.

    Nice gig rig, the Whitey O'Van. Great name!
    Mine was a F650 Ford 24' box truck. Power tailgate was light years ahead of a ramp.
    Yours is sweet for your needs. The LEDs are a great idea. I can still remember the days when we hauled our entire band, in a Stude Lark wagon and an El Camino.

    In Chicago winters. Much fun,
