    I drove a 94(?) ranger in the smokey mountains and I loved every second of it. The thing had rust holes for ventilation, the only working gauge was the speedo, oil and fuel leaks, no starter, and my favorite part was the shifter never being actually bolted to the troony. It made good anti-theft, self defense, and pulling the stick out when I shifted from 3rd to 4th while pretending to panic were some of the best keks I've had.

    I want to buy another shitbox just to run into the ground but I don't know what car to choose. Maybe some 90s minivan.

    I've owned a Caravan, a Corolla, a Camry, and 4 motorcycles. Total purchase price of all vehicles I've ever owned combined was under 10k CAD. I was born into the shitbox way and a higher power has denied my pleas to advance past constant rust repair and rebuilding wiring harnesses. I cannot escape and must make do with what I can.

    Well that all depends:

    how hard is it to change the transmission on a 2012 Chevy Impala? Because if it's not that hard then I guess I still own a shitbox but I might be able to fix it.

        That is not the answer I was hoping for. It's leaking black goo from the side of it so I'm not sure if there's some kind of output shaft bearing that can wear out. It's making a weird rattley noise...I may have to take it to a mechanic since it's not throwing any codes.

    I have and I do. Ever since my E28 M5 got rear ended at a stoplight 10 years ago I only daily cars I won't get attached to, and take my fun cars on road trips, weekend drives, and maybe occasionally to work when the weather is great and the traffic is light. (I currently DD an E90 335d with a cheap repaint and some underbody rust).

    I have yet to spend over $500 on a vehicle so yes that's all I've ever owned. Most were vehicles only I would drive as you had to know the quirks of the vehicle to not die as much. They definitely have their pros. It's definitely nice not having to give a single frick about a vehicle. Ding my doors, I don't care. Oh no it's hailing, the hail damage is just speed dimples. Functionally a shitbox does everything a new $30k econobox does aside from the image. If that's worth the $500/mo payment then all the power to ya.

    >Do you currently own or have ever owned a shitbox?
    The closest thing that I’ve had was an old Prius with a couple patches of messed-up paint, some rust on the undercarriage, an air dam that got a corner fricked up by road debris, and some moderate wear on the interior around the driver’s side.

    I don’t know if it’s really proper to call it a shitbox since in spite of not being particularly diligent about maintenance, it held up better than my dad’s second Prius that’s a full 6 years newer than my old Prius, and my brother-in-law’s Prius of the same vintage that has body panels held together with tape and zip ties.

    I’ve occasionally thought about getting another one in mint green if I ever decided to go full moron and trade my current daily in for a fun car. They’re amazingly versatile and resilient beaters with rock bottom running costs, just completely devoid of any fun factor while actually driving unless you got one with the optional JBL speakers.

    Yes and I miss that piece of shit from time to time. It was a manual legacy wagon, the exhaust rusted off, there was body damage on one of the rear quarter panels. I stitched the quarters back on with zip ties because they rusted out at the fenders. Snow drifting, ripping dirt roads, playing in the mud. It was so nice to not give a single frick about it. The seethe it generated driving through the nice suburb was great.

    I owned a VT Commodore wagon with 480,000k on original motor.
    Fricking loved it, oil in the coolant all the time, cold mornings knocked like a flak cannon. Never let me down once, regret trading it in every day.

    I had a 1979 Ford Granada 4 door once. It was liberating. It started having problems and one day didn't start so I donated it to one of those st. Vincent de paul type car donation places and a couple weeks later I saw it out on the road, it had been fixed up and some fat parents were driving around with what looked like a couple of kids in the backseat. Everyone should have a shitbox as a second car.

    Never a full-on rusted out jalopy shitbox like that. The closest thing I've ever had was my E30, which was more of just a money pit that I almost never managed to do anything with because as soon as I'd fix one thing another thing would break.

    Lol yeah. When I was a teenager my dad rolled up in a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant that he got for $1,300 and said "anon I got you a car," it was supposed to be black but the whole topcoat was peeling and it was a little brown, a little grey, a little white. Thing ws awful and brokedown all the time. My dad was not good at buying cars. We called it Black Beauty.

    damn i'm in the market for a shitbox, i've never owned a car and my credit isn't good enough to get a 10k loan for a decently maintained used one. are they only worth buying if you have mechanical knowledge? or do you guys just buy them to further run them into the ground? if it's the former, what resources should i look into to learn more about how cars work and how to fix shit? whats the DA approved car maintenance 101 reading material?

      Some people run them straight into the ground and move on to the next one, others treat their shitboxes like their babies and get quite a few years out of them. Sometimes they treat them like absolute shit and still get quite a few years out of them anyways. Besides general repair stuff on YouTube etc, start watching/reading up on more model specific stuff, that's what I learned on a lot.
      I take it your budget is less than 3k? What are you looking for in a car?

        yeah i'm shopping between 1-3k, im too impatient at this point, i've spent the last 6 months catching up on debts thinking i was finally going to enter the bank for a loan yesterday only to get denied, so i wasn't saving money and wasn't even really able to until now. i was looking for a truck to put a camper on but at this point i'm looking for whatever will get me to work while i continue to build credit.
