When Freddy “Tavarish” Hernandez moved from New Jersey to Florida, he selfishly wanted to burden one of his readers with one of the most unreliable cars ever made by giving it away before he left. As luck would have it, I am that reader.
For those a little fuzzy on details, the car in question was a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta VR6 with 223,000 miles, an exhaust leak, and worst of all, an automatic transmission. Now, most car flippers would throw this gem on Craigslist or sell it to their favorite landlord, but not Tavarish. No, he gave the car away with the caveat that the readers alone, would decide its likely rusty fate, and decide you did: almost 4,000 votes went in favor of my proposal for the #FreeR6 project.
