my cousin drives a 2015 Dodge Challenger with a V6 and automatic/paddleshift transmission (which she thinks is considered manual). of course, i criticize her for this, but she says i cant talk shit about it because "i'm not old enough to drive". so can i really not talk shit about it?
(Challenger pictured is not hers, just some random one i found on the internet)

Yes but the one not at fault tried to low ball my insurance even though it was just paint work at that point for more than $1k. I reported no damage as I can just repaint the bumper much later and the rate had not changed.

They're pretty close, with the vette winning more than a few races. And at HALF the price.

Base vs. base, the Vette is 1/10th the price. The ZR1 is still 1/5th price of the GT.

Do you guys keep an empty water bottle in the glove box or on the mat of the back seats in case you're stuck in a traffic jam and absolutely need to pee, too?

I always try to laugh it off when a passenger asks me why there's an empty bottle, like "guess I forgot to throw it away haha", but I wonder if that's actually weird.

That thing cruises at just about 200 mph and it was about -10°C outside. I pissed in my bottle, but I had to empty it first. The water immediately froze all over the canopy, and if that was my dick it would’ve been an icicle.

It’s come to my attention that normies don’t like the 86/BRZ.

A coworker even told me today that her stock 2016 golf could beat one.

Why is this? Is the meme that 86s are shit until you engine swap actually true?

no it does get on the road just mostly rural areas
one day I slid it into a ditch and had to get my truck to pull it out
a sheriff truck showed up when we were about to pull it out and we pretended we had nothing to do with it untill he left
the only time I ever got onto the highway was during a snow we got
I actually drove it up into town
the only reason I didn't get caught is because the fog was really heavy during the morning and the police were driving around with their lights on and they could be seen before they could see the car so you could just drop into a parking lot or gas station and they'd drive past without seeing you

Considering a 2007-09 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 like this one as an overland vehicle. But I have a few concerns. To save people a click, it's a 6.7L automatic with electronic 4WD, quad cab, sport edition.

https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicledetails.xhtml?listingId=465736048&zip=29621&referrer=%2Fcars-for-sale%2Fsearchresults.xhtml%3Fzip%3D29621%26doorCodes%3D4%26startYear%3D2007%26incremental%3Dall%26endYear%3D2009%26modelCodeList%3DRAM25002WD%26makeCodeList%3DDODGE%26driveGroup%3DAWD4WD%26listingFeatures%3DonlyPrice%252ConlyPhotos%26sortBy%3DmileageASC%26engineCodes%3D6CLDR%26firstRecord%3D0%26searchRadius%3D0&startYear=2007&numRecords=25&firstRecord=0&endYear=2009&modelCodeList=RAM25002WD&makeCodeList=DODGE&searchRadius=0&makeCode1=DODGE&modelCode1=RAM25002WD

A few people have said the old 5.9 is better than the 6.7L because it's less complicated, but it seems like the 6.7L is more efficient and more powerful. Also, should I go for an air locker or something more simple? And what would be the best way to lift the front end to fit larger (but still the same width) tires?

No, adjuster was his official title. We got on alright. Not everybody acts like a Jew all the time and it was an edge case as to whether to have it totaled or not.

In retrospect I probably should have pushed to have it totaled, but they initially underestimated the amount of damage and I didn't want to give up on my beloved car.

I bet he thinks he's an adjuster.

Adjusters interpret and apply policies, they don't look at damaged cars. Estimators do that, they're usually retired mechanics or bodyshop techs that do it part time.

PROPERTY adjusters will go out and view damaged houses and sometimes estimate the cost to repair, but not auto. Either he legitimately was an adjuster, in which case he doesn't know how to estimate for auto damage, or he was an estimatics guy and doesn't know shit about policy wording.

If you drive a shitbox that's worse next to nothing, don't bother with comp/collision, it's a waste of money. If it's a decent car, you'll get a good ACV settlement to buy another car/put towards another purchase. There's really no benefit to the insurance company, they just determine which option is less expensive (fixing or writing it off and giving you bluebook value).

Keep in mind that as adjusters, we have zero inventive to try and fuck someone over. It's not our money, and we're bound by the policy allowances. I like helping people out where I can, but a lot of the time it's just not up to us, the contracts are pretty iron clad.
>>
>>18709185
They went on the estimate from their "preferred" shop where I would only get a (((warranty))) if I used one of their shops.

I don't think he really knew what he was doing other than running numbers. The shop held on to the car for months longer than the initial estimate because they'd decided to cover the damage and it was worse than they thought. It was a good learning experience, and I'm still with the same insurance company because they didn't dick me over.
>>
>>18709213

Nothing wrong with going with a preferred shop. The alternative is that we cut you a cheque and you get some ignorant spics to fuck your vehicle up, then you have no warranty, no recourse, and all we can say is "told you so".

We give warranties because we don't want to deal with your whining shit 5 months later when Juan's Auto Body does a shit job and your car falls apart or the paint starts peeling. There's nothing we can do, but rest assured you ALWAYS call us and bitch and moan about how we should now pay for the same fuckin repairs TWICE because you wanted to go with some nigger-tier shop.

Not to mention the amount of fraud that runs through those shops. If we guarantee the work an offer a lifetime warranty on parts, why the fuck would you even care? Customers who start with "well muh buddy owns a shop and I'd like to give 'em the business..." drive me fucking nuts. Get your buddy to put a goddamn spoiler on it and some bags if you really like him that much.
>>
>>18709326
I don't blame you. It's not like the preferred shop got everything right, either, but at least they begrudgingly fixed more stuff after I brought it back and showed them what was still broken.

Nobody cares about the parts warranty. The parts cost pennies and just add up as line items. It's the cost of labor and the capital investment in things like alignment racks that cost a fortune and you know it. They even try to Jew you down on things like "betterment" where if your $50 shocks are old already then you only get compensated for $20 because now you have new shocks. Wow, sure couldn't pay for that by not going to McDonalds for a week.

Well, I have this old e36 I owned for years now, but it's not roadworthy anymore. The last owner fucked the repair of some damage on the left-back quarter panel that did not get apparent until it turned into some major, structural rust fuckage (Idiot did a lot of BS to the car, alone the amount of rice I removed).

I know those cars aren't worth much. It's not an M3, not even a 328i, but the car is really dear to me, and aside from the major rust it is in good technical condition.

I found a 316i coupe that is completely beaten. Paint is faded, interiour is worn and all kinds of fucked, lights are half blind, only has a set of shit tires on steelies, a few dings in removable panels and the four-banger is run down.
It's dirt cheap and the thing is: The shell itself is rust free, completely and entirely rust free. It's amazing given the cars overall condition. It's basically the mirror image of my car.

So the question is: How stupid of an idea would it be to buy it, take it apart, take my car apart and basically rebuild my car in that car's shell?
I'm no car tech but I know some or have them in intermediate family, I know my way around tools and I am able to read manuals, instructions, etc and do work with my hands occasionally.

The paint would be an issue I am aware of that, but it was in need of a paintjob anyway.

Help me, /o/. How insane is this idea?
