Jerry, I am sorry that this kind of stuff continues on this site. I thought that we are all grownups....

Honestly, Lane has taught me a lesson. I don’t want to be Like him when I am his age. He’s a perfect combination of a whiny crybaby and a hateful old man. He thinks he knows everything and isn’t open to any sort of suggestion, and easily gets upset when someone contradicts what he says even with a form of knowledge.

I pity him in a way.

I really don't want to ban anyone that isn't doing something truly detrimental, but when you give that response to someone who is sharing a moment of fun with their kids, it was over the line for me.

And his actions are detrimental to the sense of community. We are not as large as we once were, so there is a bigger impact when someone acts out with personal attacks.

Not liking someone's choice in what they do with their car, and someone's family are two totally different things. If you can't differentiate between the two, then I also pity you.

I get that we take pride in our cars, and you might get angry if someone dings it. But that pales to what you feel if someone dings your child. Don't fuck with family.

So, the current cost of the $200 PT cruiser is $876. This list includes:

Purchase: $200
Tags/Title: $188
Front Brakes DIY: $238
Inspection/Rear Brakes/4 new Tires at Blair’s shop (BoneYard Racing): $250 and the stock wheels.

In this picture you can just barely catch a glance of my SRT-4 station wagon. I jump started it, and drove it 170 miles yesterday. It needs a few small things and it’ll be ready for its yearly 10k mile summer/fall cruising I give it. My kids were so excited when I finally pulled it out and gave them a ride up and down the street in it. Only one small little burnout for now lol.

04rebel: In the background is my wood paneled SRT-4 swapped LeBaron lol. It’s barely peeking out. The PT is mine that the first paragraph was about.

OD: He’s a sad old man. His comments used to slightly make me upset but now I only feel pity for him.

Lol thanks. A guy built it a few years ago and sold it off. I bought it from one of the later buyers. It’s really the best summer cruiser. Relatively comfy ride but still handles nice, power seats, 4 power windows, AC, and 24 pounds of boost when I lay into it. It would be nice to have a better stereo but that’ll come later on.

Totally agree!
a car is one thing but when family gets involved, thats personal and I wouldn't tolerate that crap either. It's like back in the day with the "Your Mama" jokes, I didn't take kindly to them....you don't mess with mama :evil: I actually lost my job at Walmart because the Automotive department manager was hassling my mother about her vehicle and I went off on him and as soon as I told him to "Fuck Off" I was terminated. Till this day, 19 years later I can't be rehired at Walmart because of "Gross Misconduct". You don't mess with mama :evil:
