I’ve only ever bought one vehicle before. A 2005 VFR800. Great bike running a 781.7cc V-4 Vtec Engine. Vtec kicks in ~6500 rpm. The actual number is 6800 if I recall. And then the newer model was lowered to 6400. I do love this bike and I dont have too much else to say on it other then I put 150 miles on it everyday and I have some plans in the works soon for some new fairings and little accessories.Until then, I’ve finally decided to go ahead and do a partial gut on the exhaust in the next couple days. See how things go.
Everything else was given to me as “Fix er and she’s yours” projects. Those are a 2005 Cadillac CTS (The 3.6L RWD) and a 1984 Yamaha XJ550, a little old inline 4 bike.
The latter two are still in rough shape atm but here is the VFR as she sits.
The XJ just sat and took some cleaning to get running. Rocks in the tank to take care of rust and rebuilt carbs.
The Cadillac however I am in the process of getting together. After a friend left to Cali, the car sat and he said he’d get me the title to it. Well, he(Now in Cali) and his father(In Florida) are both on the PA title. Father signed it without getting it notarized when he sent it to me and without my buddies sig. So I have to send out 2 powers of attorney so that I can sign for them to reissue a title that is not defaced, and then 2 MORE powers of attorney so that I can sign for them to transfer it into my name. PA titles are dumb.
Past that, it needs a new transmission. A cheap job to do but, needs done. Not paying the quoted 5k$ at the shop to do what I can do for 400$ with a nice used tranny. There is likely more work that needs to be done at this point since its been sitting for an upwards of 2 years, but that should be the only major work since that is why it was sitting in the first place. Supposedly the car started smoking after hitting a speed bump. I haven’t gotten it into the garage quite yet to really go over it.
