    I've done a mod or two
    The centurion was very real, this is a rather stripped version too, they came with full on sleeper interiors (the rear seats folded into a bed), the captains chairs could be swiveled to address a table in the rear. They were all dually, some had the weak Windsor engine and some had the weak 460 big block. They both made zero power and had a three speed non lockup torque converter, so MPG was nada. I don't think there was ever a 4WD version.

    Love it when a pos European VFD craps out on a Monday morning.
    :annoyed:

    @Abeyancer ever deal with Eurotherm drives? This is our second one to burn out in 6 months.

    @Empty_Lord and all.

    A friend and past co-worker recently had his family 2005 Civic totaled. He is looking to buy some older "reliable" import. He is posting on FB about possibly buying or considering a Volvo C30 or C130. I stopped paying attention to Volvo after the 242, 244, 245 tank series ended. He is semi retired and should be budget conscious.

    I cringe when I see regular folk considering a car that, around here, can be expensive to have repaired. I consider budget and Euro car to be mutually exclusive.

    I think a Toyota Corolla would be a better fit. Can you recommend a good "simple" year Corolla for me to recommend?

    My old corolla was a 2006. Not to many known issues with them. Pretty solid cars that as I proved can run forever.

    the 09 is also basic, simple, little bit quieter ride. Those are more prone to oil burning, but not all.


    Basically a 9th or 10th gen corolla is hard to beat reliability wise.


    Other option is find a 3.5l V6 Camry, another hard to kill car. Avoid 4 cylinder Camry, they have a nasty habit of burning 2 quarts in 1000 miles

    Gotta love it when you get something done at work in advance, send the finished project over and then get an email 5 days later asking why it's not done yet. Check your email once in awhile you fucking doofus

    I just kindly forwarded the original one and upsized/emboldened the date it was sent
