So we got my car 3.5 years and 10,000 miles ago. I've already put in about 4k from fixing things and adding new things. I'm planning on a MINIMUM of about 6k more. Is that a bad idea? I love my car. I want to make it better, and I love doing stuff myself...it's my crack :rofl::woot: It's got 118k. How many of you have my obsession? I'm still in high school with no expenses, so I'm able to put all I make into my car, and paying for college next year isn't a problem either.
