Out of Date
The first two cars I bought were not actually my own. They were co-owned by me and my friend
Pablo. I started my car owner's career in December 2000 with Lincoln Towncar 1987, an american
limousine with all necessary add-ons, Ford's 5.0 litre V8 and stuff. The whole thing cost some 1200 USD
with insurance from an anonymous dealer in Daly City, south of San Francisco.
We owned the car for no more than 48hrs. The engine was dead before we could enter Nevada. It was
in the middle of the night. We had to call AAA and get the junk pulled to the closest desert
town called Baker. The only garage around was happy to get a donation... Here is the final
picture of the car:

The next car we bought from Las Vegas. The dealer was especially nice, an old little man
called Papa Sanches. He listened to our budget and soon found a 1973 Oldsmobile Cutlass
which was mechanically in a very good condition. From the first moments we heard the
GM 5.7 litre V8 engine sound it was like a symphony. We could simply trust on that relaxing
voice for the next couple thousands miles around Mexico. Pablo left in Los Angeles and I took the
car in Berkeley. Soon I was going to buy a new car. I tried to find out if there would have
been any option to ship the car to Finland or alternatively sell it for a reasonable price.
No, it was too difficult and I didn't have time. I am sorry to inform all readers of this
page that I gave this Olds to a local garage as spare parts for 50 USD:
