    ive had my car since i was 16 and have driven it a total of about 3 months in 5 years, i need to finish my motor, do a totally new suspension, paint job, brakes, tires, interior, pretty much everything needs done but all that is my fault as well because i decided to tear everything apart to restore the darn thing :S then with my svo i got drunk one night and had to let a buddy drive it to my place and since there was no 93 octane pumps around that area i put 90 in it and was gonna take an easy with boost till i got better gas, well my buddy is a non car guy type and decided to top it out while driving it to my place and burned a hole in my number three piston from all the detonation cus from what i was told by the passenger they cruised full throttle at 150 for quite a long time and he said he heard lots of weird noises from the engine bay and they only slowed down cus it started misfiring real bad, but the first thing he said to me when i started it the next day was that it was running like dog poop and when i told him later when i pulled plugs and found aluminum melted on the tip of one what the deal was all he said was that it wasnt his fault cus it was prolly gonna blow up anyhow and nothing i say to him will convince him he caused it cus he knows nothing about motors and thinks im full of **** sorry bout the long rant just hadta get it off my chest :mad:

    I get just as wet in the rain with the top up as I do when it's down
    Cam and 3:73's are just sitting in my shop
    speedo cable squeeks
    gangsta lean in BOTH seats
    carpet is cigarette burnt and stained
    pass side door window is missing guide bushings so it goes up crooked
    pass side door lock actuator seized won't unlock, can't get it open to fix it.
    leather seats are torn/worn to crap
    cruise doesn't work
    a/c doesn't blow cold
    vibration in overdrive
    need windshield
    ashtray door doesn't work... (console is worn out so to fix door I have to replace the whole console)
    weatherstripping all around has decided to do it's own weight reduction
    fuel pump relay won't turn off
    wet differential cover (always)
    panel dimmer switch has a "sweet spot" that it will work at... barely.


    My dad keeps telling me how cool is cadi cts is and how it tells him the temp outside... I tell him, mine tells me the temp outside too... if it's 50-60 the dash squeeks, if it's 60-70 the top rattles, if it's 70-80 the tranny over heats, etc... just as good as a digital gage in the visor :D
