Large Reserves on Southern Island?

Anyone know where there is a large reserve somewhere close to Victoria?

Looking at picking up a cheap car, figure I might be able to find one on a reserve. Any input greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the reply but not quite what I had in mind.

I'm thinking I might be able to come by a broken down FC on somebody's lawn and offer a couple hundred bucks cash for a quick grab.

I know reserves have junkers laying around there lawns all the time. Figure I might be able to find a hidden gem.

The idea sounds crazy, but one of these reserves is bound to have a broken down sporty car...

Know any other reserves by chance?

What are you going to do, drive around looking for one and then knock on the door if you find one on somebody's lawn? Sounds like a pretty archaic way to find a beater.

Why not post a "wanted" ad on UsedVic?

Did your parents circle your wagons everytime an aboriginal rolled by? Jesus man. If you do find a car on a res somewhere, your blankets and long guns won't be accepted.

Just drive around the lower rent areas of town, you'll find beaters everywhere. Your best bet would be the ones with for sale signs on them.

if you're really want to drive through the reserves they're all on the peninsula. theres 3 of them along west saanich between brentwood and deep cove (one just after stellys x rd, one a little bit after mt newton x rd until mctavish, and one just after mills rd) theres another (the biggest maybe?) at mt newton on the other side of the peninsula (just off the pat bay highway), they're mostly marked on google maps

No one

I found its normal for open racism towards natives on RS. However my OP wasn't meant to offend anyone.

The fact that natives have broken down cars laying all over there properties is only the truth, not to be taken as an offense.

Anyways thanks for the responses guys.

Who are you to say no will be offended? Jesus, this is by far the stupidest thread on RS in the recent history.

Check for liens. Most have outstanding debt and there is no way anyone can go in and repo them. Just my 2 cents for this stupid subject.

Yeah I searched literally every reserve on the Southern Island looking for an FC. I found a couple nice Camaro SS's sitting on blocks and some other nice muscle cars, but unfortunately I still haven't found an RX-7 or a targa Supra.

LOL I went and checked that car out already.

It's garbage, it has a rod knock. Not worth it as a project, half it's interior is missing. Maybe if it was a turbo.

You were looking for a broke ass car for a few hundred bucks. One's been found. Why the fuck is this thread even still open?
