The Bobcat sounds like a good idea!
You should ride a bike! It's a heck of a lot cheaper, and if some d1ck does slash your tires, it's only about 12$ to replace the tubes, and maybe 24$ for the tires.
I get a lot of money problems too. It's not that I run out, it's just that I don't want to spend too much money too hastily. I wish I had caddied over the summer... :cry:

I feel your pain as well. It's a PITA to find tires for 14" rims, more and more these days. Probably next tire change I gotta look for some standard 15" ones before I have to start ordering tires at an antique store. :roll:

If somebody slashed your tires I'm sorry. All the football players at our school keep wanting to key cars in the field-house parking lot that don't belong to football players, (people like me park there who have other practices after school such as ROTC). They can do that all they want, but they just gotta understand that payback is a [female doggy]. So, I've developed a novel plan. They key my truck, we bring the Bobcat, flip their cars, and pile them all into the corner and light them on fire. Simple as that.

So, long story short, get a Bobcat.


Then thermite the engine blocks for fun.

Thermite the engine blocks! Hooray! Yea, I haven't had to replace the tires on my 03 Silverado yet, but I'm not looking forward to it. Unfortunately, I got a new job that's 20 miles away from home rather than two like my previous one, so I may be doing it sooner than expected.

Yeah, I always have money problems. Its not that I dont always actually have the money, its that I have to prioritize it. Because I do competitive Mountain Bike, the maintainance is a killer. And I earn peanuts! (no, Im not an ape, for any idiots out there; that was a m-e-t-a-p-h-o-r)

btw, while we're on cars "dying": Yay for sugar in the petrol tank i.e stuffed up carburetors!!! :P

The Problem with sugar, is that it is detectable, and therefore, insureable. A cigar will do a better job.

Thats true. What is it in a cigar that makes it work, or was that a joke? (internet doesnt help make jokes obvious... at all!)

Or there is an alternative to Thermite and the ROTC will pay for it too.Model rocket engines(if you have a rocket club).Glue them to the body of the car and light them off :D
Talk about one heck of a ruined paintjob.We learned all types of fun stuff in ROTC :twisted:

A cigar When inserted ('nyuk) into a gas tank. will dissolve and fork up the fuel system. creating a huge (yet subtle) nightmare.

Nah... all that stuff is reparable.

What you want is complete and total decimation. You wanna pull the spark plugs and pour in epoxy. You wanna cut off the fuel rail, smash it through the windshield and light it on fire. You wanna take the entire rear axle, differential, tires, and all, and drop them on top of the cab. You wanna see the mechanic asked to fix it huddled under his desk in the fetal position, crying. CRYING!!!

(Yes, I did get that off the Coke Zero commercial).

We already went over this. Girls are the n-th root of evil. Put the plastic fangs back in your pocket and CALM DOWN. :wink:





Baaacckkk on topic. This money thing is true. I've gotta wait till second semester, (when I go back to work), to do anything fun. And all this stuff is going on. :cry:

Also, while money is the root of all evil, we still do not know which root, which would put this theory in more hot water. :P
