  1. The same as the basics of any cover letter: Tell them why you're qualified and deserve the position Tell them specifically why you'd like to work for that company (this part should show you have some knowledge about them and what they do) Explain how your qualifications are a good fit for them Ask for a face to face meeting Make it no longer than one page and make sure it's free of spelling mistakes and grammatical errors.
  2. Not bad. Decent looking classic with some expected wear. Not really my cup of tea, but not in horrible shape either. With some body work and a different color I think it would look much better. I give it a 5/10.
  3. Try Duolingo. They offer free courses that can help you get acquainted with a new language. I don't think you'll be able to get fluent or conversational from them, but it's a good place to start that can help you get prepared for more rigorous courses. babbel and rosetta stone would probably be the next step, but I think those both required paid subscriptions.
  4. Those are all pretty similar. I'd probably lean toward the 2016 Odyssey just because it's newer and has about the same mileage as the 2012. You can't really go wrong with any of them as far as reliability and plenty of miles left on them.
  5. I would opt for the Vios. The engine difference you mention isn't that significant that it would really impact performance in a major way so I'd throw that comparison out. It sounds like your other points tend towards the Vios anyway.
  6. I don't know of any way to find the true service history of a car. I know carfax shows some, but it's only if it's been reported to them and I'm not sure how thorough mechanics are about that type of thing, or if they even care. I'm always hesitant to consider buying anything if the owner or dealership doesn't maintain the records themselves.
  7. Maybe a Ford Transit? The challenge might be creating a way for people to access it though since you'd be dealing with people that aren't very mobile.
  8. I'd tend towards the $5k side, but you can find something reliable in that range for sure. If you're fine with something with some miles on it (hopefully around 100K or less) then you should be able to get by for several years with only minor repairs.
  9. You have to get your plates through a motor vehicle department in your state (in the US anyway). You can get personalized plates - called vanity plates usually - but you have to go through the right channels and get them through your state's vehicle department. So, no, probably not legal if you're getting plates somewhere other than the official government office. They tend to want to have your vehicle on file if you get insurance, or in an accident, etc.
  10. When the coolant cools and condenses, it moves into the radiator. Both of these can cause a bubbling sound, but it can also mean there is air trapped in the system.
  11. Definitely. Unless you are a professional and know what you are doing it is not recommended. There are so many things that can go wrong and it can be dangerous
  12. are they still shipping from Hong Kong to USA? I just heard from Ebay they were suspending international shipping
  13. Probably the cobalt. It has less miles and I heard it lasts up to 250k miles. I would stay away from the 06 cobalt though I heard it had some problems
  14. How many times and how often do you recommend washing the car during winter months in colder climates to prevent issues from harsh weather and salt on the road?
  15. I'm no expert on classics, but it's something I'd want to get to the bottom of if I were you. I believe the last six digits of the VIN represent the serial number so it could be nothing, but again, I'd get to the bottom of it to makes sure you don't run into any registration issues down the line. I believe the 17 digit VIN came around in the 80s so that may be part of what's going on there.
