True, but for a long time the Viper was the only true muscle in the Mopar family.

I remember back I think it was 01 and we were drinking at a bar and this guy had just gotten a brand new Viper a couple days before. This was his first weekend with it and of course we were all looking at it and he offered to take a friend of mine for a ride. Well the highway was elevated higher than the parking lot of this place by like 5 feet and you went uphill to get to the highway. Well he goes up the hill goes to do a burnout down the highway the car hooks right and comes flying over the guardrail through the air crashes into the parking lot takes out a light pole and several other cars. Craziest thing I'd ever seen wish I had a smartphone back then. Nobody got seriously hurt but Viper was totaled only 3 days old. Tell your friend to be careful!

When companies who specialize in online sales can't manage to ship a package that will get the item safely to the consumer. News flash, if an item can move around in a box, it will. And when it does this it will become damaged. Then you will have an angry customer who will never shop with you again. Do it right the first time.

It is a driver's car. The rear end will pass the front before you realize things are out of shape.

Wife ran over a mocha bottle in the road day before yesterday. We live in the sticks, only one place here with a tire machine. Had her call to make sure they could handle the rim width and tire size. Yah sure no problem they said. took it off, threw it in the back of the pickup, 11 miles one way to the shop. We can't do that, our machine wont handle that. So 50 miles one way to TP Tire, a real professional tire shop, later we got it repaired. WOW!

It grinds my gears to hear that I am a risk due to having an education. The consensus is that I may find a better job and move on after being trained.

I hate to tell employers, but that risk is there for everyone.

I will stop now before I get on a whining rant. I am self employed because I was unemployed. Self employment became a necessity. I refuse to take unemployment benefits. I don't want or need a government handout. I live in America. America was built on the backs of determined, hard working, dedicated people. No Country has ever became great by giving its people anything.

Socialism grinds my gears. This is not pre school. You don't deserve a piece of candy just because your friend has a piece of candy. Work, earn, and move forward. Save, invest, and learn to prosper.

There is a difference in helping others, graciousness, gratuity, and socialism. Socialism is government theft.

OK, rant over for the moment.

If you don't have an HOA, then there should be no issues.

Ask the neighbor if he / she has a pair of hedge trimmers. Tell the neighbor they are free to use them to trim said bush.

....unless this bush is growing as intended by you.

I had my dealer remove everything that advertised them from my car before purchasing my mustang.

Even when i bought my Escape new, I removed the dealer badges and plates etc.

One sticker adhered plastic badge, license plate trim for rear and logo plate on front... Deal I got was worth the five mins it took to remove them.

They offer free car washes as long as you keep them on... Whatever lol

Exactly!!! The last time that I bought a new car I told the dealer that I wanted $1000 for the free advertisement or they needed to remove all dealer badges and plate frames! My car was stripped clean before it left the dealership!!!

On my last new vehicle purchased, I asked the salesperson how much they were going to pay me each month to advertise for them, as I was not going to do it for free. The salesperson smiled; I told him if there was no contract written up as to how much I was being paid to drive around with them, that they needed to be removed before the deal was completed and I took delivery.

The car had no dealer advertisement on it on delivery.
