$600 to get the car. We raised $250 which BK now has. That's an '86 Mustang for $350. Still sounds like a good deal to me.
Anybody seen or heard from Kieth?
I talked to BK on friday, hes on an break from the internetz for a couple of weeks.
I was feeling and thinking this as well, but i decided to keep my mouth shut cuz i didnt hear anybody else comlaining.I wanted to donate to his funds but im so broke right now i cant even donate to myself. But if i had given money i would have felt the exact same way. People came out of the woodwork everywhere to help you out, and donated money they didnt have and gave you a car. If i had given the car/ money i would feel pretty slapped in the face right now. Just my honest opinion tho.
id fix the notch.. then do something different with the 86.
maybe a drag car?
This could get realllllllllll interesting realllllllllll quick.........Just do the right thing BK. I am sure you will.
The Notch was wrecked, money was donated so BK could go pick up the '86 and make it a DD. That's what I thought was gonna happen. I guess if he puts it toward fixing the Notch, that'd be fine as long as it's to be his DD.
Not with money donated to fix up a DD.
Get the 86 .. 2 cars are better than one... For future plans/possibilites anyways!
I was thinking about it and I think that whether he goes and gets the '86 or fixes his Notch, I guess it's up to him as long as it's still because he needs a car and not a drag car. I know he's greatful for the help he's recieved and I doubt he's looking a gift horse in the mouth. He found out the Notch was fixable AFTER the donation were made ('86 and cash). I don't see a point in doggin' him out.
Regardless of which way he chooses to go, I do hope the money goes to either car. I do know also, that $250 isn't near enough to do either. He'll still need to save more money.
I vote he does whatever he wants. If he is really that worried couldn't he ask the people who gave their opinion?
I really don't see a big deal here. I OFFERED a car to him. Others OFFERED money to help him. You guy's came up with $250 to go toward the car. It takes $600 and 26hrs to get from there to here and back. As far as I am concerned if he can get another donor car for the $600 in his home town, I would do that. When I made the offer I did it because I felt bad for him. We all offered what we did because his situation sucks. Let him make the decision. It is his money and his car if he wants it.
+1 bk wouldn't do anything crazy anyway, donor car or save his car that's what he will do in the end. the donor car was a stand up offer, but that's alot to travel, I would investigate saving your car some more, like I wrote before it really looks like it can be saved. I wish you the best of luck.
Soooooo ... has a decision been made yet?
ok first off WOW if i had known this was going to blow up i nmy face like it did i would have thought twice about it. i have decided to fix my notch. i am not using the money to do anything else with it. i have made a few trips to the junk yard and i have a buddy that gave me some parts and im trying to fix it as quick as possible. and when it gets done it is going to be my DD. i dont have mucj time to go into detail, but im sorry if i ****ed anyone off and i AM NOT looking a gift horse in the mouth. this just seems to be a more economical and time saving decision.
but i cant stress enough how much i appreciate the help from everyone. and im not using the money for anything else but fixing my car so i will have a reliable ride.
Congrats Keith, Im glad you are fixing it. And welcome back by the way.
