Probably could've bought an AP1 or a 350Z for the amount of money I spent on my S13 lulz. ICBC gave me back a fraction of what I put into it. Oh how things would've been different if I didn't sign the form and I negotiated letting me take my car back...

How many of you have had this question before?

"Why do you spend so much money on an old car, couldn't you just buy a new one?"

I always just respond,

"I could explain, but you wouldn't understand."
