October 5, 2011 – So the plan is to: buy it, find the ramp in this video, discover I don’t have the stones to navigate blind up this thing, return to my house where I park it in the garage and hear from my wife how I never enjoy the cars I buy. “Honey please, it’s only got 29,631 miles. I can’t flip that to 30K, it’ll totally kill the value.”
