What was your parent's daily driver that you remember the most as a child? Maybe the one you took on family road trips. Mine was our 1990 Chevy Suburban that finally replaced the 72 SkyLark.

My parents didn't own a vehicle growing up for a good portion of my life, but today I am fortunate enough to own two. Life really has been a blessing. I've got dream to buy a Nissan GT-R someday in future once my needs in life are taken care of.

I think that you did an extremely dumb thing. Leave alone that you allow your wife to drive a structurally damaged car (I wouldn't, even after "repair"), if your wife or anyone else that has a serious accident due to structure failure with that car, you are facing: your car insurance won't cover you, your health insurance won't cover you, if third persons will be involved they will sue the living hell out of you, and they will win, leaving alone other civil or criminal proceedings. Structurally damaged cars must be scrapped, full stop.

I've got 3 words as far as the paint correction. LET ER BUCK. It's now a rust belt ride. And with kids... invest the savings elsewhere. IE rust and corrosion protection and interior protection.

Wow! That was amazing work. It's a shame that more people don't do this. It will make you feel better about the car you drive. If you keep your car looking new, it will make you not want to get rid of it so often. Great job! Loved the work. That was great that you did a plug for Dennis. I'm sure lots of people could use his service for dent removal.

I mean you ended up spending 29k on this Escalade, I've seen multiple on Autotrader with the same specs as yours for ~32k. In this instance, it would be better to negotiate and secure a deal. Time = Money. But then again you probably paid for this car by posting this FRvid Video so kudos!

Where is the Structural Damage? CLICK BAIT anyone? everything seen here was cosmetic repair or maybe anal paint repair, and then says gonna do a "paint correction" in a couple weeks?? probably was free for the advertising because he works there, but if You want this done to your ride it's $3800 all in. Nothing performed here was going to make this vehicle run or drive 1% better. structural pffft

Auctions can be a really good place to get a good deal if you aren't set on a specific vehicle (unless you are patient enough to wait a year as he did). As long as the mechanicals are solid and the body is in decent shape, what little needs to be fixed and what you're willing to live with will yield a great ride. In 1989 I purchased a 1989 Ford Tempo from an auction with high miles and hail damage for $2000. I never did bother with fixing the hail dents because there were just too many of them. That was a fantastic deal that served me well for about six years.

Sales tax on USED cars doesn't work that way in Georgia. Here' it's around 7%, but the state tells you what the car is "worth" and uses that to calculate the tax amount regardless of what you paid for it.
