March 28, 2008, Square Haven has ceased updates indefinitely. Don't despair, however; the work started here more than ten years ago continues at Videogam.in.

SO, here I am, going out to start my car on Sunday to head over to Terasa's dad's to get an angel statue figure-thingy for her mother's grave... Turn the key, car no wanna start... takes a few attempts, a break, a call to my uncle, and another attempt at starting it (we'd come to the conclusion that it was probably flooded)... and it starts... I let it run a few minutes, shut it off, start it, repeat... all works ok....
I drive to her dad's (a whopping 5 minute trip) and park in the driveway... a few hours later and a Change of plans (as we're not too trusting of the car by now), and we go to her brother's house (in her dad's truck)...

Before we leave, I try to start my car again... no go... me mad... :angry:

We come back later that night, and it takes me 3 attempts to get the car started... I drive to a co-worker's place and ask her for a ride to work... no problem, and I head on my merry way home... (mind you, the car RUNS fine, just no go w/ the starting of it at this point..)

I get home in-between my morning and afternoon bus routes, and take a better look at the car... doesn't want to start now either... I pop the hood, top off the radiator (as is my custom now), and check the oil........................... <_< It looks like chocolate milk... (*ie- that's bad*)... Yes sir, I've gone and blown the head (and/or gasket).... Car is shot... Fucked Up Beyond All Recognition... Found On Road Dead.... er, wait... my car's a Dogde, not a FORD...

ANYWAYS... I'm in the process of looking for a new car (for less than a $1000...). And I can't believe the pieces of SHIT that people are trying to shove down other's throats for anything less than about $600.... And, just to let you know... anything up to (and including) about $1,200 are somewhat 'iffy'.... I just don't know anymore.

The current front runners are currently looking like This 94 Escort, a 4 door '96 DODGE NEON w/ no rust, great mpg, runs/drives great, for $900, a 1994 FORD TAURUS SHO w/ new motor, trans, & more, 108K miles, for $950 obo... or a Dodge Neon, only a 4 door version... owned by the same person...


*SIGH*.... :blink: Screw this... I'm going to bed now... Later all....

I'm looking for a car too. My old one was a 95 Escort and she ran like a dream. Problem is, they kinda burn easily.

Wasn't this an issue back before SHMFoD... uh... 'shut down'? Wasn't it you who was in the hospital, something about a tractor? I can't recall exactly what happened, nor to whom, but I thought it was something along those lines... Maybe I'm mistaken...

So, what happened to your happy little Escort? (ironically enough, one of the cars I'm looking at is a 94 Ford Escort LX Sport... w/ 100K miles on it, for $888.)

Yup, that was me. A tractor pulled out right in front of me, I slammed right into the thing it was pullling. My car burned to a crisp (I wasn't in it).

Nice.

(NOTE: Sorry about the one-word post, but I felt that it was all that was needed in this particular situation.)

i got into two car accidents in my parents car. both of them during the winter with lots of slush and ice. i can't drive in the winter now. too paranoid. :(

:(

PEOPLE. STOP HAVING ACCIDENTS AND SCARING THE JESUS FUCK OUT OF ME.

Forget you; I got rammed by a Mayflower bus when in my puttering compact Volkswagen. Talk about scaring the jesus fuck out of someone... Hehe. That's one way to make a compact car more compact, though. :lol:

Oh, my dear Lord, how I love that.

Rachel, have you given a name to the truck that's been prostituted to the feet of so many owners? For poor Phoebe hums a low sweet sound, so low we find it in the ground.

Nah, for it is not mine to name, however, I came close to giving it a name, when in a fit of rage I shouted: "Move you motherfucking piece of shit. MOVE!!!!!"

However, I have been considering names for my next vehicle....

My car is a 94 ford escort wagon. She's been in two accidents, now she has a ruined bumper, no airbag, the center console doesn't work all the time, all my speakers are blown, and the apolstry is falling off the seats in places. but, she's mine.

She is the tan wagon, and there is no other like her.

My little Hyundai is getting a little work done in the morning, a set of rotors and pads that amounts to $105.17 plus tax... (That's just for the parts, a friend and I are doing the work ourselves, so at least I don't have to pay for the work as well...)

pixel
Damn that a lot of money. My new pimp-mobile is my bike. Two wheels, a kickstand, and a water bottle holder. Actually, I'm still wistfully dreaming about the water-bottle holder. But the scurvy lass be mine!

And she requires no fuel other than a Snicker's bar -_-

Lucky you, now if I could get my car to run on hope I'd be set....

But, at least it gets 30 miles to the gallon and with gas prices being the way they are (midgrade was 2.39 yesterday when I gassed up)...

pixel
the next time you see an H2 on the road, be sure to flick them off. I still believe that anyone who buys a car that isn't at least 25 mpg this day and age should go to the fucking middle east and buy thier own gas.
pixel
The ones that really get me are the people who hurriedly leave a building and get in their car. Wait for about one to two minutes for traffic to let them out of the parallel park, then drive two blocks up, and go into the next building. That's to much dependence on a vehicle. Use your legs, dammit! Otherwise, if you refuse to use them that much, at least make more use out of them by making a good leg roast.

The H2 proves how people put style over functionalty. I don't know if it's still true, but in 2003 and everal previous years, the Hummer had the highest Customer dissatisfacion rate.

Sorry, I like the ORIGINAL Hummer, and actually before that I liked the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWV, pronounced Humvee®)... but that might just be because of my Military inklings. (Remember, I was a Combat Medic in the US Army Reserve)

The thing that gets me about the Hummer and H2 that bugs the HELL out of me is the fact that these are the BEST vehicles for off-roading... and (practically) EVERYONE WHO OWNS ONE CONSIDERS "OFF-ROADING" DRIVING OFF THE MAIN ROADS...

THAT'S what gets me about the H2 (and now the H3... which is an even smaller version of the H2... damnit, it was SUPPOSED to be a PICKUP!!!!)

Meh, that's the end of my rant...

If i was gonna get a hummer, i'd just go a few steps better and buy a damn tank.
pixel
I want a small hybrid, but built LIKE a tank. That way when the next school bus hits me, I can point and yell FOOLS!
pixel
buy a buick if they start making hybrids then.

Only if I can get it in gunmetal. I want people to know what color they'll be dealing with if they mess with me after hitting my car.

Hehe... yeah, that's a sweet idea... "Say Hello to my little friend!"

get it in basecoat metallic sheen, then put 10 coats of ultra-shine clear coat on it. turn your car into the mirror-mobile!

or, come to think of it: Tan with woodgrain flames... bitchin.

I love it! Yay, retaliation to the nerds who always flash their brights at you, just because it's a weekend and they have no lives!

I want a car made out of water, so I can drive to the US.

why not buy an old DUKW. It's an amphibious army vehicle that's been decommissioned and now used on tours of land and lakes.

because it's not made out of water!
