    Grimy ass mother fuckers take advantage of new kids quick. Sell you jank busted up shit. Don't pick up someone else's problems. N shake your hand with a smile.

    That n when u on the scene mufuckas on the sidelines be like "oh I built that car" or take credit for that car in someway.

    But when u build your shit and bust it out. A car no ones touched or seen before. . .THAT'S bulletproof mufuckas shut the fuck up quick but point out stupid shit like "oh look at them crooked pinstripe lines" its cuz they mad u got a car they ain't touch.

    With this particular car, financially its better to buy built. U can find a clean lac for 5 to 7500. If uwere to build yourself you will be in for over 10k for new equipment...and when u want to sell....you will be in the 5 to 7500 range. The problem is finding a clean simple car to add your taste, usually someone done put some goofy ass leafing, the wrong kit, and some gucci guts.......

    truth….but i still prefer to build mine even tho financially its not really worth it. built this for about 12k and sold for 7k lose of 5k because i never got used to the pinstripe on the door, i should have sanded the stripes off and re did them

    If we all looked at from a financial stand point, no lowriders would be built. We all do it , because of Passion or I like to call it, a sickness. We dump money in our rides, cause we enjoy it. If your looking to get money back, your better off just keeping in the bank.

    Well I guess your one of the rare exceptions. If you build a car exactly the way you want it, I find it hard to believe you can profit from it, unless you bought it dirt cheap to begin with.
