    If It Is Broke, Do Not Fix It

    Seatbelt that refuses to stay buckled, resistants in electric windows, rusted hood, replaced different colour side mirror, glove cupboard that never shut, trunk that could never be open by the key, struggling starter, broken CD player, missing antenna, gas that disappeared too...

    I actually purchased it with a friend. We are going to build it up over the winter and by Spring have a track car to take out to Summit Point. Look for us if you can.So far our plans aren't set in stone, I have to talk to my uncle and a few other people. We may end up turing it...

    Does It Cut The Grass?

    Just out one Saturday looking for a used riding mower. For some reason a Mercury dealership drew me in. Got a great deal on a leftover 86 Capri 5.0. Last year made. Fast little thing. Kept it for 175.000 miles. Sadly, I never got my riding mower.

    Only 3 Miles Old

    At 18 just as I was to be driving off to college my sad little Mustang took it's last breath and promptly died during rush hour.  As we sat there in the middle of the intersection slowing all it's brethren, none of their sounding horns would resuscitate him...

    Gone To N-plate Heaven

    Normally with cars, before the end comes, there are a few months of slowly building frustration and anxiety when I can feel it dying.  Intermittent faults, failure to start, over-heating, bad smells, bits falling off.  I’ll have had to turn the stereo up so loud to drown out...

    A Lemon From Day One

    I've owned seven used cars. Almost all of them were bad. Well, that's a used car for you. People seldom sell good cars. They sell ones they're having lots of problems with. When I finally had a good-paying job, I started buying new cars. Almost all of them were good to...

    But... The dealership I went to is sketchy

    as **** after witnessing how terrible he is at customer service. I financed a 2007 Audi A4 for a lot of money. It was taken back to get the rear end painted which I was told would only take a day. This was two days ago and it's just getting painted now at the bodyshop. The check...

    So Excited!!

    Just today, a few hours ago, my parents bought me a brand new orange Honda Fit.  It's so new that I put the first five miles on it by test driving it.  By "they bought me", I mean that when I was in high school, my parents told me if I went to a private...

    The Showroom

    Today I went to buy a car. I had to travel to a town I am not totally familiar with. I found the correct road but couldn't see the showroom anywhere. I came around the corner and there was this nice shiny new showroom. A big yellow shield with a black prancing horse adorned the...
