Dammit! I was so close!

Twice today i almost got the GT taken away for good.

First is ive been letting my dad drive it to his vanpool location, since its on a pretty busy road. let him take it all this week but today he took the other car. well he gets home from the vanpool and one of the other poolers cars got stolen. THAT COULDVE BEEN MINE! dammit. they stole a ****ing nissan sentra. who the **** steals a nissan sentra? just think, they couldve stolen eleanor! how ironic would that have been?

then on my way home from work, i almost got royally rear ended. is it bad when you know theyre gonna hit, and all you can think is Yes, finally i get to mod the cobra!. so im just chilling at the light, i was stopped for a good minute and i look in my rearview cause i just got that tingley feeling like somethigs amiss (i get it alot, its like habit after getting rear ended the first time) and i instantly run my eyes to the rear view just to hear them hit the brakes. they swerved into the median at the last second, with my large smile quickly turning into a frown. the tahoe wouldve made a nice total out and even prolly have enough mass to screw up the guy in front of me. too bad it was a male driver, he knew not to just rely on brakes alone as the only solution, he hit the brakes and maneuvered. if it was a female, she wouldve panicked and just layed on the brakes right into my rear and prolly not have stopped until she pried the dome light off with her grille.

btw, i do have GAP insurance and theft coverage. I made sure that when buying a car barely worth 14k for 17k that i got gap. unlike the GST where the bank was like "umm, blue book is double what youre getting a loan for so we cannot offer GAP coverage".

****. back to square one. guess ill just have to try again tomorrow.

If I had the money I'd take her from you and spare your life from a potential beheading or crushing from an accident.

lord knows.

chances are the insurance company would still screw you as they so love to do to everyone.

nobody wants it. its been in autotrader for 3 months now, on craigslist 4 runs. i now have all my buddies posting it in classifieds in sites they frequent.

i wouldnt be collecting any money from it if something happened to it. and its not like i did much Time and Work wise. i spent 2 grand on body kit and other body **** and another 2500 for paint and at that point i was basically at 22k invested and it was still just a GT.

Re: Dammit! I was so close!

i dunno, i guess i've been investing money into my v6 and that car means a lot to me...you are looking into money invested into ur car as a few thousand dollars that u don't care about....i wish i could easily throw money away like that

just my two cents, i'm not trying to start a fight or anything, but when u tell me u WANT to see ur car wrecked or stolen, that just hits a nerve with me cause i take pride in my cars

Re: Dammit! I was so close!

might just have to suck it up and lower the price so you dont get stuck with montly high insurance~ 4 months could (for some) nearly be a grand.

yeah i know what you mean. i used to be like that. now im on my 5th car and i just stopped getting attached to them. though it getting stolen or totaled out is the best solution for me. to sell it, i will probably have to pay to get rid of it. totaled or stolen, its no longer a worry for me, insurance covers it fully and its a done deal. now as far as asking for it to happen or attempt at making it happen(as in, taking it to a field and torching it, and saying it was "stolen") is just retarded, but im just saying if it *did* happen and the cards played out this way, i wouldnt be disheartened whatsoever. all i would need to do is sit in the cobra, drive around the block, hop on it in 2nd gear and instantly feel better.

Now if the cobra were to get totalled out or wrecked, id be ****ing pissed, cause that car is awesome. but the GT, eh, to me it was only nice until i realized that i had made a mistake in buying a car worth almost 4k less than what i got the loan for, as opposed to the GST where i got the car for half the amount it was worth. I basically became detatched from the GT once i realized i could get a better car, then cobra blindness set in and i didnt realize before buying the cobra i would have this much trouble selling it. if anything, i would think a car that looks as good wouldve gotten snatched up quick, especially by some dumb ricer kid who just likes it cause it has a body kit. then i find theres ****tier cars like preludes and s2k's with 100k+ going for 15k and leads me to a search where i find the value of a GT in my area is jack ****, even with awesomely low mileage. one with 20k miles, torch red 5spd black interior is going for 12,5. i would have to bring the price down to around 11k to get rid of it, and even that its not set in stone that anyone would even take it. even with autotrader page saying "Asking 13K, make an offer" nobody has even called or inquired.

and i look at a car as money invested TOTAL, which means Car Price+Mod Price. so i bought the GT for 17k, and ive put prolly 5K into other ****, and its a car thats still valued at under 12k, and im in 22K on it. now the cobra on the other hand, i bought at 22k, and its worth possibly 26k as it stands. after driving the GT and basically ricing it out, im now getting back into my performance roots that i used to have when i had the GST, and to get the GT up to par would bring my total investment amount to around 30K+, and i still might only be a little faster than where my cobra sits now at 22k.

Re: Dammit! I was so close!

i guess i'm just on a different page than u--my car has so much to it, even though its just a v6. i know it sounds stupid but if it wasn't for my car my life would be entirely different right now. yeah i'm concerned with investing money into it and making it a fast car, but to me theres more out there than just how fast the car is. (now don't turn that into a ricer statement where they spend all of their money on appearance mods and can't go anywhere, i'm sayin i have my best friends cause of my car (mainly cause of my car club), and so much more from it....this probably makes no sense but i do have an attachment to my car, and it doesn't bother me for a second that its only a v6....cause i know one day i'll have my roush and right along side of it, i'll have my v6)

sorry if none of that makes sense but i'm just thinking entirely different then what u are thinking, and i love my car and wouldn't trade it for anything.

Re: Dammit! I was so close!

I can tell you right now, I loved my 01 v6 just as much as I currently do my 03 cobra. And before that I loved my 97 v6 just as much as well. If it wasnt for them I wouldnt have my current car at all~ I think what he is saying is that he wants to move on from the gt to another car and he wants it gone he didnt really have it long enough and some of the things that have happened to it put a negative light onto it in his eyes. I know when I had issues on my other cars I got pissed at them no doubt.
