When this man got an offer to buy a “free car” or more realistically, a 208 Chevrolet Uplander for less than $1,000. The major problem with his new car was that the engine did not work at all. The good old story, right?

Then our enthusiast got lucky when a friend of his offered him gave him a 2000 Toyota Avalon which had an electrical issue. So, he began a great journey of days, weeks, and sleepless nights spent searching for the missing parts and assembling the car.

Adding new brakes, tires, cabin air filter, and engine filter, a transmission service, an alignment, and the rears way bar bushings. After assembling all together with the pieces he wanted to test it on the long road. A bit anxious, but he was brave enough to go 1,000 miles till Michigan’s upper peninsula.

The recently repaired Toyota Avalon had a good performance on the road never skipping a single beat. A quiet and comfortable trip among the beautiful Michigan landscapes is the perfect stress relaxing therapy for anyone.
