Witch on a Bicycle | I’m building a car from scratch with zero budget, watch me go insane

Things were bought, (way too much) money was spent. Legs were worn out, and my butt hurts from way too much sitting on deliberately uncomfortable benches. Not joking on that, DART was forced to buy benches that are only comfortable for the short duration so as to discourage homeless people from sleeping on them.

What’s My Car Worth?

One of the most important pieces of information to have on hand when purchasing a vehicle — especially a used one — is its actual value when conducting both a private sale and a dealer-authorised sale.

Our service is quick, efficient and free, and it’s the best way to make

Buying Your New Car

Think about what car model and options you want and how much you’re willing to spend. Do some research. You’ll be less likely to feel pressured into making a hasty or expensive decision at the showroom and more likely to get a better deal.
