    So I've got some extra cash (~200) to spend... trying to make a decision.

    1) Buy a sofa (most likely used)
    2) Get some truck parts


    Sofa would be really great to have... the only things I have to sit on is a bed and my computer chair, but truck parts would help get the 78 moving some. Tough decision.

    Sofa, you can ejoy it every day, and sleep on it, and use it to store change, and with the right cushion arrangement ADVANCED TECHNIQUES!

    **** you can find a sofa for free on the side of the road. Spend the money on truck parts and if you really need a place to sit get a bench seat out of a truck, they are fairly comfortable and people will often give them away.

    Sofa's are overrated, you will end up moving it around, always dirty underneath of it, clashes with other furniture. Why put yourself through all of this. You will end up saying I should of bought truck parts instead.

    You can find a sofa anytime fo almost nothing. If you put $200 into truck parts yiu will need another $200 to buy gas. Put $175 in the bank for when you really need something. Spend $25 on beer.

    SOFA! :D I have to jump if I want to sit on the bed, and the floor isn't very comfortable to sit on. Plus not getting the sofa would mean that you made all that extra space in your room for nothing.:rolleyes:
