Info: http://pastebin.com/9LsCaFcU (still needs to be updated, maybe I'll do some tomorrow)
Quick Summary: Need to stash the work car after using it for fun.
"I'll see if she will, I think I have something I need to talk to her about anyway." you reply
When you make it to her door she rolls down the window but stays quiet.
"Are you running me home?"
"Sure whatever, just hurry up before I change my mind, I don't know how much longer I can put up with you." she snaps back
Well, that's still a yes...
"She said she would." you tell Cheryl walking back
You get your tools, bumpers. and seats into the Packard.
"See you around, maybe Fri-" Cheryl stops herself "Oh dude, I'm sorry, I'm not used to thinking of you with out that car."
"It's fine...I'll probably be legalizing this one or buying something else before Friday."
No way Dad is letting you take the Valiant out like that so you're gonna have to if you want to be there.
"Hey, I know a guy selling a '58 ragtop for a couple hundred if you're interested, bone stock!" June lets you know
You'd never here the end of it from Ronnie if you bought a VW, but you're never going to hear the end of him fussing at you for losing the '55 either. Shit, you were supposed to go to the strip tomorrow with him too. What is Dad even going to say about this, do you even want to go home tonight?
"I'll let Cheryl know if I'm interested, I need some time to think about it. Later guys, need to get this taken care of."
With your goodbyes said to the VW group they get back into the wagon while you get in the Packard.
Erika leaves with a peel out, does she want to get the cops back on you again?
You follow her out to that farm again, driving down the side of the corn field, into the woods, and through the maze of dirt trails until you come to a clearing. She lets you get in front, you're sure you remember how to get to the back entrance to Carpenter's from here so it's all good, you can just leave it there.
Assuming the only thing you're going to be needing anytime soon are the tools you grab those and leave the Packard sitting off to the side of the dirt road and make your way to the Olds. She doesn't say anything as she threads the needle to back up until she can get turned around.
If she really didn't want to give you a ride she should've just said so, you could probably be having fun in that VW right now. Why did you even think she'd like you back? Now the whole atmosphere feels awkward after having been relatively good all night.
She comes to a stop at the road, looking at you and awaiting for you to tell her where to go.
A) A motel
C) Al's, there should be another "party" going on
D) Like she'd ever do it now, her place.
E) Lassiter's are nice, maybe they won't mind you staying for a night.
F) Ronnie's? Could get the roasting out of the way.
G) Could you just drive around for a while?
Obviously, you'd like to try to make things better with Erika or maybe call it quits now.
W) Is there even a chance anything could happen between you?
X) Sit there in silence, no risk of making anything worse.
Y) You'll hitch a ride, get out.
Z) Get off the topic entirely, ask if she's interested in car shopping tomorrow.
> before you can say a word Erika pulls off her mask revealing her true identity, Teague!
> "I have feelings for you too, son. I just wasn't sure how you felt. "
> you realize this is what you wanted all along
C because me shitting everything up with my /dbt/ nonsense is simply the best choice
>"Gonna give you the hammer of justice, boy"
This. But we'd probably have to do something for them first. They are kinda sketchy on doing illegal shit as of right now with the P.I. running around I assume. Maybe run some parts in the Packard or something?
>Take a piston, preferably from the 442
>Put a belt through the conrod end
>Erika puts the belt on
>She revs to 9000 with dry humps
And there you go, we just dropped a speedhole in Deb.
>Kill the P.I.
Seems a bit risky t b h, I assume he's working with the police in some capacity, and Teauge does know that we are at least friendly with the bikers. If he winds up dead, they'll KNOW somethings up, and they already have us connected. OP, wanna shed some light on that for us?
>Killing Brian and Deb
>mfw this seems rational
At the VERY least, we are killing his 442 in some dramatic fashion. Jerrycan + a lighter, heavy-ass truck as it sits in his driveway, plant some drugs in there and create a sting, I dunno. But we gotta fuck him up.
Some of yall niggas give up too quickly
"Get back to town, I'll tell you where to go from there."
Keeping up the silent treatment she heads off on the short way to town, at least she's doing the speed limit. If anything is going to be said it's going to have to be you to say it, and you already have a question you want to ask.
"Do you think there's any chance for us to be together?"
You knew it was going to embarrass her, but does it really matter at this point?
"I don't know." she replies bluntly
"How do y-"
"I said I don't fucking know!"
But seriously, how do you not know?
The awkward silence returns, only broken for you to give directions until you let her know you're pretty close to home. Judging by the deep breath she took this is going to be a doozy.
"A-after what you told me earlier I have something to tell you too."
She takes a detour to get a few extra minutes, you're all ears.
"All the lovey dovey shit makes me uncomfortable, I don't care about it, never have, never even had a crush."
Not even a crush? Damn...she really just wanted to go on a drive and nothing else, huh?
"I don't know if I'll ever change and I don't care if I do, as long as I have a car to drive and a place to drive it I'm perfectly happy."
You can only hope she does change, at least things are starting to look like it's more of her than you.
Her little detour doesn't add much to the trip so it isn't long before you're sitting outside your house.
She looks at you with a soft smile, looking pretty damn tired.
"I-I'm sorry, but I can't be what you want me to be...b-but I need to get home, I got up way too early and I don't like driving tired."
A) Mention that today was basically a date, she did fine.
B) Offer some coffee before she goes, maybe It'll wake her up a little.
C) A kiss might just make her realize she is exactly what you want.
D) Let her get going home, you'll probably be hitting the bed soon too even though you aren't sleepy.
We're not killing his 442 unless it's in an attempt to kill him. Fucking with his car just to fuck with his car is a bitch move. Chopping his hands and head off with a dull axe while his girlfriend is forced to watch is much more honorable. Planting drugs I could go for. And/or tell the PI to look into them. Get all 3 killed in a shootout with no witnesses to tie Jamie to anything.
Rape Deb with a curling iron. All her holes.
Let's get Jaime killed or wait for the draft so OP can get his wish and stop posting.
no but desu let's just focus on making the Packard faster and legal, gotta become a better driver than her if this cunt's gonna be ours
"We've got some coffee if you want some, it's instant so it won't take long."
It takes a few seconds to a get a reply, you're a little surprised at the answer.
"Maybe that'll help some, I guess I could come in for a few minutes."
Holy shit, you finally bring a girl home and Dad is going to be asleep for it.
1st thing she does when she gets out of the car is look over the Road Runner, doesn't look like she's going to call this one a piece of shit.
"This your dad's car? He needs a garage, it's a fucking shame to leave it outside when you're not driving."
You wish he would get one, preferably one that could fit 5 cars.
At least you got a hint of Erika before you make it inside, you lead her to the kitchen and get to making a cup of coffee, she stays eerily silent the entire time. Even once she gets the coffee she stares into it when she's not sipping from it.
"W-why do you even want me? I don't look like much and I've treated you like shi-"
It looks like she just came to a life changing realization, her flushed face makes the grin she gives you look like it belongs to the devil.
"Y-you're one of those weirdos aren't you? You like it when people are mean to you?"
Oh no, you can tell she's going to have a ball with this.
"Pfffthahaha now it makes sense! No w-wonder you always wanted to be around me no matter what I did, you were hoping I'd kick your balls in again!"
Does she mean this? She's still red but it's obvious she's feeling a lot better at the moment. She really needs to keep it quiet though...
"I was just trying to embarrass you with that whole begging like a dog thing but you probably wanted to do it! Oh man, I can't fucking believe this, my kicks didn't break you, you were already broke!"
Maybe she's just trying to embarrass you again? You wish the subject was different but it's nice to see her laughing like this, you'd hate to ruin this for her but you think you should clear this up just in case.
She's still snickering a little but you should be able to get some words in now.
A) Let her have this, it's got her back to her old self.
B) Well, you actually like her because she's a cute girl who knows how to drive a bad ass muscle car.
C) Isn't she a weirdo that likes being mean to people?
D) S-so what if you kinda like how she treats you?
Didn't know I did.
But then she might have liked kissing and been more open to future lovey dovey shit instead of thinking we're a masochist. :^)
>But then she might have liked kissing and been more open to future lovey dovey shit instead of thinking we're a masochist. :^)
way to fuck it up, retards.
Can we just start bootlegging now?
We need to save up for a GSX, a real big block, not like Erika's bored, extended small block.
No, we should raise the cash and get the local GM Dealership guys to special order us from Aussie a HT Monaro.
Sure, it will probably cost more then ZL1 Vette but its a Monaro.
But I don't need a big block when the Monaro weights 2900lbs.
Also going to get a GM big block I would go for a 454 Chevelle, mostly cause of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3LxQJ6xvyA
Also, not a Aussie.
Nigga, the last thread was mostly a car chase, and as long as people make the choices I kinda have to do it.
We've got the drag strip, working on Renee's car, and our own car situation to deal with tomorrow.
Secret option D.
Tell Dad we sold the '55 to concentrate on working and not getting into trouble. The money is in an interest account that you can't access for how ever many years and by the time he even questions it, we'd have saved enough money from running parts and shine to disprove any doubts he has. From what I remember, he still thinks Jamie works in the diner.
But she does like us as a friend.
She said she didn't like us when she met Sharon.
She said she considered us a friend that same day.
I bet you're one of the people who thought she actually wanted a date and not just a drive.
I think its more a sign of 'tolerates' Jamie. Same way she deals with most people. She genuinely only loves cars (for the time being). Hell, the only time she showed serious emotions in front of us is when we lost the '55. She holds our car in higher esteem then us.
S P I C Y C O M E B A C K L A D
It was just a guess the moment she mentioned her 'girl', but when Erika was reading that car magazine specifically an article about McLaren, it was all but confirmed.
OP's crashing this CYOA with no survivors.
I just wish he kept it going until we can get in Julia's pants desu
My bad guys.
Yeah, you need to tell her the real reason here, before she decides to stand up and kick you in the balls again.
"N-no, it's not that, I like you because you can toss around a muscle car like no one I've ever seen. I think you'r-"
Doesn't look like she has lost steam yet.
"Of course, I'm one of the best driver's in the county, if not the best!" she cuts you off
"So, why wouldn't I want a cute girl that happens to be the best driver in the county?"
"Hahaha, th-there you go, calling me cute again, you're not embarrassing me anymore!"
That's easily the worst lie you've seen her tell.
"I'm not trying to, can you not fuckin' accept that I honestly think you're cute?!"
Oh man, you probably said that a little louder than you should have...she's just getting a little annoying here.
She goes silent, staring down into the coffee. Did you really have to yell at her for it to get into her head?
"You mean it don't you?" she says, talking into the cup
Holy shit, have you made it somewhere?
"Yes I mean it, did you think I was tryin' to trick you or something?"
You're pretty sure you see a few tears trickling down.
"W-well, thanks G-Georgie, I don't get many compliments with my looks, I just found it hard to take you seriously...hahah..."
She stands up, confirming that you saw tears, she wipes them away before speaking.
"S-still, I don't want a relationship, not now, I'm not ready..."
She finally acknowledges that you find her cute and she's just going to run?
A) Ask if she wants to give you a ride to look for a car tomorrow.
B) Guess it's time to say good bye.
C) She's probably more ready than she thinks, give her a kiss.
D) Maybe a kiss is too much, just a nice hug will do.
E) If there's no chance for anything to happen you're done with her.
/o/ is option D.
No matter how much they pick B.
I never said Julia's hair color I don't think, but why not?
I think you guys want them to be friends tbqh.
We really should do A, but we've already got like a million votes for C and she's in our house.
What the hell, you've gotten further with her in this short time than you ever could've hoped, if she doesn't truly want you, you want to learn before she leaves.
You walk over to her, probably already matching her in shades of red at just the thought of giving her a kiss.
You've gotten surprisingly close without her doing anything so far, even more surprising when you consider she's been watching you the whole way.
"Georgie, I don't want a hug ri-"
She must've just realized what your intention is this time, you're not exactly going for a hug here either. She looks down at the ground, but doesn't take off running, you're kinda worried you're about to get another kick.
You're not even sure how to do this properly...
"Hey Georgie!" your dad yells out, cutting her off, doing a better job of stopping this than Erika was doing
The both of you jump, as if this wasn't already embarrasing enough. You both look over to Dad who is laughing with his head poked around the corner. How long has he been standing around the corner, goddammit!
"Can't you dang kids keep it down, some of us have work in the morning."
"I'm sorry!" Erika says heading for the door
Whether it's smart or not you follow after her, she turns around shortly after making it outside.
"You're such a f-fucking idiot!" she yells, good chance of waking up most of the neighborhood
She makes her way over to the Olds, flipping you (both of you?) off before getting in.
Dad walks up behind you with a whistle.
"Heh, what'dya know, the muscle car drivin' gal exists, she's feisty one ain't she?" he looks around you "Where's your car at?"
Yeah, and she hasn't quite left yet.
A) You sold it.
B) You lost it in a race.
C) You left it at her house.
D) Gee, thanks for running her off.
E) Run after her and hope she'll stop.
Assuming she does stop.
X) Ask if she'll take you car shopping.
Y) Apologize for what just happened.
Z) You're done with this bitch.
You had to see it coming.
Plus she didn't kick us in the nuts or take off after realizing our intentions.
We just gotta salvage what happened and try again some other time.
And tell Renee to fix up her own damn car desu
You take off running, answering Dad's question will have to wait.
If there wasn't a passing car to make her come to a stop you wouldn't have made it to her window. She stares at you for a few seconds as if to decide if she even wants to hear what you have to say. Looks like she does when she rolls the window down.
"I'm sorry, if I knew he was goin' to do that I would never have-"
"Don't fucking care, I don't wanna talk about this s-shit anymore!" she yells
Wait, she can't mean she's completely done with this can she, no way Dad just blew what slim chance you had. She sits there for a moment, looking away from you, seemingly taking the time to cool down a little.
"Just hurry up and get car that I don't have to lug your stupid ass all around the county to pick up and drop off."
Well, she's not done with you, that's good. Wonder if she would be down with taking you car shopping tomorrow?
"I was wantin' to look into that tomorrow, think you could take me?"
"I could, but if you act like an idiot I'm sitting you out, you're paying for gas too."
You can only assume that acting like an idiot means lovey dovey stuff.
"That's fine, can I have a number to ca-"
"No fuck-ing way, I'll be here in the afternoon, if that's not good then you're out of luck!"
Uh, that's a broad range, you don't get the chance to ask for details either. The Olds backs out of the driveway, leaving with a peel out. Good thing you got your tools when you got out.
You make your way back to the front door.
"I'm sorry son, I didn't think she'd run away." he says, looks like he means it
"Yeah... she's not used to all of this love stuff, she gets embarrassed real easy." you reply
He moves out of the way to let you through the front door before shutting it, you can already tell he's wanting that question of his answered.
"Now I know you ain't in the best of moods, but you mind tellin' me what happened to your car now?"
With how everything else has gone why not tell the truth?
"I lost it in a race."
"Why would you go racin' for pinks after you spent all that money on it?" he asks in disbelief
"He was an asshole, he talked bad about the girl, he had his psycho girlfriend who tried to stab me, key my car, he poured his drink on me. I wanted to shut him up."
He puts a hand on your shoulder, he's probably highly concerned with the people you're keeping company after that story even if he doesn't say anything about it.
"I know it's rough to lose a car, but you ought not go rushin' into situations like that..." a yawn breaks his speech "I'd sit up an' talk but I need to get back to bed, if you want to after work tomorrow I'll be here."
You're ready to put this day behind you too. Tomorrow has the drag strip, helping Renee, and car shopping with Erika. Should be a fun day.
You don't bother changing out of the stained clothes before hitting the sack.
It takes a while to actually get to sleep with all that you have on your mind, but it eventually comes.
When you wake up you hear the Road Runner leaving, it's a little earlier than it usually is when you get up. By time you're done with a shower and eating a decent breakfast it's 9 o clock.
Dad left the keys to the Valiant on the kitchen table so you know he's ok with you driving it.
A) Go help Renee.
B) Go get a newspaper to get a start on what cars to look at.
C) Sit around the house, you want to be sure you're here.
Look at something lightweight. Doesn't have to have a V8, just make sure it can take one. Our best shot at making the fastest car is having a lightweight car with a buttload of engine and tire. I'd personally be looking for a Fiat Topolino instead of the usual '41 Willys/'32 Ford/T-bucket kinda deal.
It can use most of the old frame, the body itself (of course without the fenders), and the steering and front suspension would work if you dropped the spindles a bit. Rear end and driveshaft would need to be upgraded, but so would all the ones you mentioned if you put a solid V8 in them. You don't even need to cut the body if you just run without fenders.
Might as well get a newspaper to get an idea of what car you want before Erika shows up. You grab the keys off the table and head outside.
As you climb into the Valiant once again you wonder if Dad would just sell it to you, sure it's not much but he'd probably let you have it for cheap. One good run for Al and you could have a V8 in it, maybe you could even earlier if he let's you get it for real cheap. If you're going through with all that maybe one of those Fords at Rick's isn't a bad idea, there's still that VW that Cheryl's friend of a friend has for sale too.
You roll into the nearest gas station and pick up the latest newspaper, the headlines being a fatal crash involving drunk driving. You're almost certain that the picture is of the truck you saw a few days ago, well shit.
Before you can make it back in the car, Benny's red Mercury rolls up. Today couldn't have been event free could it?
"Good mornin' kid, shame about your car." he says as he walks over to the newspaper stand
Wait a minute, he knows you lost your car? Sure if he knows you and your car he'd know that you hang around at the drive-in most likely. There was a lot of people there last night anyway.
"How do you know that, it was just last night."
"You already forget I have eyes everywhere? Maybe they've seen a little more if you have some information for me."
Knowing where the '55 is seems more unbelievable...but there's a chance right?
A) Rat Al out
B) Give some bullshit
C) Offer money
D) Nope, you're going home.
If you're going home, you need to think about what cars you're going to look at 1st back home.
Even a cheap, used, nearly 10 year old BMW is going to be about all of our money.
We don't have enough for a project like the '55 or the Packard.
D, W or Z. JUST MAKE SURE IT'S LIGHT AS FUCK AND HAS SPACE FOR A HEMI.
Also, relaly hoping for a Topo. Actually, the Topolino would be even more ironical with the Chevy motor in it (geddit? Topolino? Mouse motor?)
D cause never nark'd on no body.
>Just Do It
What the fuck, guys.
What the actual fuck.
We took the Packard, our covert shine running vehicle, out hooning with bitch face, now the cops probably know it.
Where did that get us? No where.
Fuck that chick, man. Seriously. Waste of time.
Now we want to strip its guts out to make another race car which can't run shine.
We need to get paid, homies. Then spend the money on a race car if we want.
Not this shit.
>implying we ever had the option to pull over, especially when running shine
I'm not gonna vote to part it, I want to make it faster.
But OP needs to hurry the fuck up and let us run some shine.
Maybe get some more contacts, like the Lassiter's.
Did everyone suddenly start wanting old(er) cars or something?
Of course this is the kind of thing that takes me the longest to do so who knows when I'll get around to posting.
If we're not parting out the Packard a project isn't going anywhere fast.
>But OP needs to hurry the fuck up and let us run some shine.
Can't hurry the production of the drink.
>Maybe get some more contacts, like the Lassiter's.
Should've told Paul the truth.
1960 fury guys, room for a hemi, and mopar handling.
>Did everyone suddenly start wanting old(er) cars or something?
Not sure we can buy anything we'd want/need on our budget with at most a 5 year old car.
We can always buy a project and keep it at Carpenter's until we start running some more, use the Valiant as a DD.
Maybe take an early drive to the Lassiter's tomorrow morning and tell Paul about our situation.
Also what's our purpose at the drag strip today?
Not like 50s cars are going to be expensive either.
>We can always buy a project and keep it at Carpenter's until we start running some more, use the Valiant as a DD.
If you want to spend the majority of what's left in the story driving the Valiant then I guess that's fine.
>Also what's our purpose at the drag strip today?
Was supposed to meet up with Ronnie and see what our vehicles could do.
Rob has his "Guess the ET" game.
Carpenter and Rick are supposed to race against each other.
>If you want to spend the majority of what's left in the story driving the Valiant then I guess that's fine
I want to spend the rest of it moving shine and getting the '55 back, nonviolently but not necessarily legally.
Instead of just a new DD, why not also give us options of a new bootlegging car/truck/van?
>Instead of just a new DD, why not also give us options of a new bootlegging car/truck/van?
We just spent what, like $1,000 on building a bootleg car not even a week ago? We don't have enough money to do all this project stuff.
>inb4 people unhappy with choices
I try ;_;
"I've still got nothin' to say to you about it." you reply
Benny lets out a sigh but doesn't say anything more, he stands by his car reading the newspaper as you climb back into the Valiant.
Not wanting to sit here and read alongside this guy you back out and start on the way home.
Inside you take a seat at the kitchen table with the newspaper.
You look through the classifieds, picking out some project cars.
1955 Corvette - $300 - White, no engine, no transmission, everything else is perfect.
1929 Ford Sport Coupe - $175 - Yellow, runs and drives, original engine, good restoration or hot rod project.
1950 Olds Rocket 88 2 door - $60 - Been sitting for 5 years in shed, does not run. Need gone.
1949 Mercury 2 door - $275 - primed for paint. Custom mounts for Ford small block, can't continue project.
1950 Henry J - $45 - Engine blew, already removed good start for dragster.
Looking at cars that should be a little better for daily driver duty, yeah...you're not getting much here. Most of the cars are whether junk in serious need of help or restored to well past your budget.
A few standouts are:
1946 Jeep Willys CJ2A - $250 - Military style paint, banged up body but runs like new.
1949 Studebaker Champion Starlight coupe - $160 - Velvet Black, working heater, engines misses, probably needs a tune up. 3 spd OD.
1947 MG TC - $325 - Red, recently serviced, straight car, little bit of love and it would be perfect.
1948 Fiat 500B - $230 - Blue, well maintained, great mileage.
1949 Nash Ambassador Custom sedan - $285 - maroon. 234 engine, 3 spd, . Drives as nice as it looks.
1948 Hudson Commodore Brougham vert. - $375 - Bronze Metallic, 8cyl, leather, radio, heater, Drive-master.
1935 Ford Roadster - $345 - White, rumble seat, 221, custom exhaust, no top but car is nice.
A) Start making calls.
B) Go help Renee
C) Look at 50s cars
D) Look at 60s cars
I'm having my eye on:
>Henry J (cheap roller chassis to put the hemi in)
>'29 or '35 Ford (great start for a 442-beating hotrod)
But what I'd love is the 500B. Too bad it's so damn expensive compared to our budget of 440. Call him, ask how much he'll take for his 125 dollar car, negotiate from there, but make sure we pay under 200.
So I got within 5 dollars of a reasonable range for a 1948 Topolino's second-hand price in the year 1969?
Hmph. Makes me feel less bad about my failed exam this morning. Might actually have to do something that requires period-correct motor vehicle pricing.
Anyways, call the fellow, ask him how much his 65 dollar car costs. Work from there, take it if he lets it go for 100.
I have no idea what these cars are worth.
Usually just use an inflation calculator and/or original price if I can find it and go from there. Or if I'm really lucky, classifieds from the period.
$850 today is $131 in 1969, thought that was reasonable for a cheap muh MPG beater.
Sucks about the exams though.
My mind says the Corvette..
But my heart says Henry J.
For the love of god, the Henry J.
Showing all the options will be a buttload of hassle.
And unless you're an expert in Fluid Dynamics, and care to travel to Dutchfagistan to educate me, you're not going to be tutoring much. Thanks though
Fiat is the lightest by far: 610 kg / 1345 lbs
In 2nd is the MG TC: 890 kg / 1960 lbs
Next is the Jeep: 969 kg / 2136 lbs
After that comes the Henry J at 1062 kg / 2341 lbs
Finding weights for the old Fords isn't as easy, but they should be 24-2700 lbs, the Vette and Stude are both a little under 3,000 I think. I want to say everything else is over that mark.
Keep in mind that we still have to spend time and money to get an engine into these things and beefing them up if we want to get serious, some are easier than others.
It takes a long time, but if you guys can put up with the wait so can I.
We need something around 1000kg nothing more. Don't let these faggots buy some 1500kg whale and expect to win races against other 1500kg whales.
We buy something light as fuck, we remove hemi etc from packard, we sell off packard, we swap HEMI into henry j..
No more of this having three cars bullshit. We are a kid who hasn't got tonnes of money.. We need to focus on one car.
You know you're going to be cutting it close with some of the newer cars but you figure it's worth a look. Some of the cars go over your $440 budget but getting a few extra bucks working for Carpenter should fix that problem.
Unfortunately it looks like you're going to be stuck with a 6 cylinder at the largest if you get one.
1964 Ford Mustang - $400 - Yellow, 170 6 cyl, 3 spd. Passenger side has body damage from guard rail.
1962 BMW 1500 - $450 - white, 4 spd, garage kept, 1 owner, properly maintained since new. Moving across country, you won't find one this cheap anywhere else.
1960 Chevrolet Corvair Club Coupe - $420 - Blue, 3 spd, Turbo Air 6, EMPI Compensator, a blast to drive. Owned for 5 years and haven't died yet.
1960 Rambler American coupe - $400 - Red/White, 90hp, 3spd, power steering, Porter muffler.
Yeah, this isn't going much of anywhere.
After giving up on the newer cars you go to the 50s cars that caught your eye, should be able to find some V8's in your budget.
1956 Chevrolet 150 Sedan Delivery - $275 - 210hp, 3 spd, overdrive. White
1955 Ford Mainline - $400 - black. 3spd floor shift, 272 CID V8, headers and exhaust, 3.55 T-Lok, Fun, fast, and sounds mean! Needs new rear tires.
1950 Ford DeLuxe Fordor - $200 - grey, 239 V8, heater, radio, and whitewalls.Solid car that hasn't been touched by hotrodders.
1954 Triumph TR2 - $350 - British Racing Green, no tears in top. Recently detailed and mechanically sound.
1951 Cadillac 61 coupe - $415 - Dark blue, Hydra-Matic, still rides as good and just as smooth as it was when it rolled off the line.
1958 Plymouth Savoy sedan hardtop - - Red, 318, TorqueFlite, light bumper damage but otherwise perfect.
1952 Crosley Super Station Wagon - $75 - yellow woody. Great car, best mileage of any car I've ever had, runs great, just too slow for me.
Heh, wonder if you can fit a V8 in a Crosley? That would be insane... wait a minute, Crosley?
Holy shit, you've spent over 2 hours looking at the damn newspaper! You're sitting about half way to noon now, if you want to help Renee out you better go do that before Erika shows up.
A) Make some calls.
B) See if Carpenter has a job.
C) Go help Renee.
C / A still regard's The Henry J.
Tho, TR2 as a daily would be god tier.
Renee would probably dig the TR2.
>TR2 cause God Save The QUEEN.
Remember guys, we are buying a racecar. Need I remind everyone of the real goal here, getting our car and revenge on pic related?
They're masochist they just don't want to admit it.
I guess putting up with all the shit they go through prove they like her though.
Wonder how far I could push it before they move on? :^)
Don't go name calling just because you make no sense.
Nah, top right.
>bitch ass worstfu fag.
Didn't know Erika was worst :^)
I just realized I didn't even put the price on it lel, maybe he did.
Was supposed to be $400, but it has some cool options the ad doesn't list.
C, and let's buy the MG, didn't you guys read the red car?
If this story was all the way to my taste it'd be a comedic SoL with automotive antics set in the modern era and everyone would be a loli because that makes everything better.
Erika would have a GT350R
Cheryl would have the same thing
Renee would have a NA Miata
We'd have a 85 Mustang GT or some shit
Julia was just never intended to be a love interest (neither was anyone except Cheryl, I've changed a lot of plans for you guys).
It's always weird to see all that shiny chrome on a dull rusted husk.
We have $440 atm.
So it looks like the Savoy and Henry J are the big choices (with the Savoy being the literal biggest), I'll have us call about those 2 then we'll decide where to go once Erika shows up.
Erika was originally a guy and our rival for the entire story lel.
Sharon and the bikers were supposed to be minor characters that would rarely show up past getting the '55 painted.
Renee was literally going to be a one night thing until people wanted to go on the date.
Cheryl was supposed to get more and more into cars as you hung around. (Still happened but eh.)
>Erika was originally a guy and our rival for the entire story lel
Dropped the ball there kek, a cute girl in a brand new Hurst Olds who drives better than Jaime, and you didn't expect any of us to pick her over Cheryl?
>Renee was literally going to be a one night thing until people wanted to go on the date
i thought that too, but you know how all of us get laid everyday and know how girls work. :^)
>Cheryl was supposed to get more and more into cars as you hung around
She didn't give a shit about cars from the start, and you introduced Erika too early for us to care about her.
lel I think this is actual wagon, not sure what that other piece of shit is.
Maybe a prototype?
We've broken her down some, things are finally looking bright if you decide to not fuck us over.
Also will we ever get a chance at getting the '55 back?
Don't care if we take it the same way we took that Riviera.
Although not sure if the PI would fuck with us after repainting it and getting a new plate.
I was tired of chasing her days ago.
She may be cool to do illegal things with but screw trying to romance that bitch.
Holy fuck, do something like this.
Steal the '55, strip the parts, burn the shell.
cause they are idiots who like pain.
Same as wanting a Savoy. Sure it cool but it has no place in building a fast car to get the 55 back.
>don't care for the 55 nor Erika
Henry J when?
Your far to nice/kind to us with the options man.
Getting this car business sorted out needs to be a priority, you grab a pencil and a piece of paper to write down directions on and go to the phone.
So far the Plymouth Savoy and the Henry J have spoke to you the most.
Let's start off with the Plymouth, the phone gets picked up after only a couple of rings.
"Hey, I was calling about the Savoy."
"Yeah? Still got it out here." a man replies
"So it's all good mechanically, just the bumper?"
"I mean, it ain't actually perfect, being an 11 year old car and all but it's solid other than the rear bumper. Transmission is smooth, engine doesn't miss a step, stops good, steering feels great, everything inside works, and the ride is still nice after all these years."
Have to wonder how far from perfect it is now.
"When would a good time be to check it out?"
"Well I'm off today, so just about anytime, If it ain't today it'll have to be in the mornings."
Damn, even called at the perfect time.
"Alright, that's great, where do I go to check it out?"
Looks like you'll be going to another town to look at it, why can't any car be in town? After you get directions you let him know you'll be around some time to check it out.
Alright, time to get a hold of the Henry J owner, you don't know if you can throw a project together like you want just yet but if you can it'd be cool to show off to Dad since he had one back in the day.
Unlike with the Plymouth it takes a while for someone to answer the phone, you put up with a crying baby before anything is said.
"Hello?!" an agitated woman answers
"Uhh, hey, I'm callin' about the Henry J."
"Thank God, someone wants to buy that damn thing!"
Is that a good or a bad thing for her to react like that?
"My stupid husband bought that thing knowin' we had a kid on the way, 'Oh but it'll be fun when it's done!' he'd say!"
"The body's all good right?"
"Oh it better be perfectly straight and rust free as much as I've heard about it!"
You're sure she just dropped the phone, after a few minutes of arguing with you assume the husband she comes back.
"You got something to write on?!" she asks in a yell
Fortunately you do, apparently some magical force heard your thoughts earlier, this car is in town. Doesn't matter much when you're going to have to go to Carpenter's to get it towed up there if you buy it.
That didn't take very long, you really don't have anything to do now.
A) Sit around and wait for Erika
B) Help Renee out.
C) Maybe you should call her and let her know that you're not interested.
D) Wonder if Carpenter has any quick jobs you could do to pass the time?
>We've broken her down some, things are finally looking bright if you decide to not fuck us over.
Nah, unless something happens to piss her off I'm not just going to erase all the progress.
Just don't go getting your hopes up for having a sexy time with her.
>Your far to nice/kind to us with the options man.
I know, but it's a CYOA, I allow bad decisions and feel like I should listen to you guys since I'm doing it for you.
If we can't race for it people are going to have to get it back another way if they want it.
C as in call Renee and tell her we're not interested right?
If so C and D
>Just don't go getting your hopes up for having a sexy time with her
I just want her to have an interest in Jaime before this CYOA ends desu
And (C). Say as it is - you lost your car, looking to buy something today, maybe hang out later.
Also, why don't kick tires on the Bimmer? We can spin a sob story how our hot rod got stolen and we don't want to be stuck driving Pop's car?
What, it deserved more then what the masses voted for it. Not to mention people threw it away by being gun ho/trying to show off.
>it should have been 472ci Caddy +671 blower swapped for max torques for wheelies
Keep doing it how you do it. We still be here making bad decisions/fighting over waifu/carfu
also kind of want to hear more of the modern setting "dew trail"
Modern Dew Trail
> A teenage Virginia boy meets a group of relocated urban youths from Philadelphia. He befriends them and earns fat stacks running raw herion up the I95 corridor, buys some sweet cars, and then things get bad...
I like it, but can it be more 80's with cocaine. In Miami Vice sort of way using a DTM or Grp A style fox body.
Also shoulder holstered mac10's.
savoy gasser when?
we won't even have to spend money on it lookin' pretty
I miss her, bros.
Oh and I realized if we get her back unconventionally, we can have Carpenter falsify some document claiming he bought it and sold it to us to get that punkass PI off our back, no need to strip or repaint anything.
This. We need the lightest thing we can get. No goddamned Savoy dammit, it's too heavy.
OP, there were four votes for the Topolino, why not call for that too?
Unless, of course, you can guarantee that with a decent engine, the Henry J can beat the 442, and get our beloved '55 back.
If it can't, we really, really, really need that Topo. Balls out, Hemi in it, big fat slicks on the rear, zero budget left, I don't care, I want the '55 back.
>4 votes for this italian piece of shit buggy
Pretty sure they're all from you.
Henry J is a project, we don't have the money for a big project.
>Pretty sure they're all from you.
Surprisingly, they aren't.
We can drive it around now, wait untill we gather some money using the Packard. It's cheap, and, more importantly, it's light. If we have some money aand put a V8 in, it'll easily outrun the Henry J. We don't really have any other options, we need something lightweight given this era's tires if we want to outperform that 442, and get the '55 back. They were the vehicle of choice if you wanted to make an effort at disguising your slingshot dragster as a streetable vehicle.
Like OP said, unless you want to drive around in the Fiat for the rest of the story, we'd better pick something easier to upgrade.
Plus if we're gonna drive any piece of shit buggy, it'd be a VW.
I think this pic sums everything up.
Take it as you will.
We might barely have time to drop a v8 in the fiat, but you're retarded if you think we'll have enough time to make a AA/Fuel altered car.
>DD a 13bhp buggy; top speed 53mph even for a few days
I always voted for beat waifu because it seemed like the most interesting path way.. Why do I want to read about some boring hippy chick who likes music.. Erika drives cars fast and is an autistic psycho. Best waifu.
You're probably one of the few people here autistic enough to be taking every decision seriously..
Modern era would be more racing oriented with less driving through the city like maniacs and no dew trail to speak of.
What with all the radios and dash cams that would make for a short story.
I only saw like 2 votes for it, either way it and the Henry J are going to require custom work.
The Fiat is going to require a whole lot more of it too.
Henry J frame was used for all kinds of kit car shit back in the day and loads of drag builds, held up fine. If the stock frame with stock front suspension and a beefed up rear end can take a blown 486 Ford big block then it can take what we would throw at it.
Then again, given our budget who knows if either one is a good choice.
We could have ate shrooms with her and wound up going on an adventure in the '55 lel.
But yeah, this story is supposed to be fun.
>implying it isn't Renee who has a crush on Erika
Why else would she get embarrassed at the thought of being "like that" with her girl?
I'll just let this thread run for a while, I'll make a new one for the next post.
>threads lasting half as long as they used to
At least I did some very small tweaks to the pastebin
Well since you're already by the phone you might as well call Renee and tell her you're not going to be helping out today. Better than just not letting her know anything.
"Hello?" she answers the phone, a lot quicker than last time
"Hey, Renee, I won't be able to help today-"
"Did something happen?"
"Hehe, yeah, I kinda lost my car in a race so I'm going car shopping today."
"S-seriously?! What car could even beat it around here?"
A stripped out 1965 Oldsmobile 442 with a built engine apparently.
"Yeah, I was just as shocked, so I'm sorry, but I won't be able to help today."
"Oh...well that sucks, I'll probably put it on myself, it's just a header and I bought my own tools!"
"What, you don't even need me?"
"Nope, working on your car taught me that working on them isn't as bad as I thought, of course I'd rather do it with you around though."
"Maybe next time I'll be able to help out."
"That won't be for a looong time, the header and tools took all of my money ehehe, what kinda car are you looking at anyway?"
"A '58 Plymouth Savoy and a Henry J."
The silence says it all.
"Uh, well, those don't really suit you, but if it's what you want then that's how it is. I'll let you go so I can get to work and so you can get to car shopping, talk to you later Jamie."
She didn't even bring up wanting an answer, guess she'd want something like that said face to face. Sounded like she was eager to get started on installing the header though.
A) Sit around and wait.
B) Go to Carpenter's.
C) Go surprise Renee.
sort of C) and A).
I don't want to let Renee think that we dump her badly. okay we won't be involved romantically with her anymore but she seems to be a fun gal' and having more racing friend is better than having none.
Let's start a racing crew with Ronnie, Erika and Renee and challenge people at the drive in.
Call ourselves [name of town] Speed Stars (you haven't said where the stroy takes place anon, haven't you?)
And after get back home and wait for Erika I think
Renee drives a 26 hp car lel, I don't think she's racing much in a straight line.
>you haven't said where the stroy takes place anon, haven't you?
Nah, just the general area (Appalachian mountains. NC)
The town and surrounding countryside is fictional and based on a multiple real places.
Only real places so far is the Park Vista Motel and Restaurant and the road to it (place we went with Renee) and of course the city of Charlotte.
Lewilkeryville would work given the inspirations, but that sounds hilarious.
Guess a made up name could do.
>Renee drives a 26 hp car lel, I don't think she's racing much in a straight line.
True, I forgot. But deep in my heart I like this girl even if I prefer Erika.
> Guess a made up name could do.
Appalachian Speed Stars it is. Let's ask /osg/ for stickers :D
Ronnie's truck has like 10x the hp of the Crosley and only 3x the weight.
Everyone knows trucks are goat at drag with Larson's S10 running 5.89 anyway.
>Appalachian Speed Stars it is
It'd work, that way we could get a few other states involved to.
Even have a home track,
