Well I've got a couple pics of my latest custom paint job

As you can see everyone else loves my car as much as I do... NOT

I'm so depressed about this, I can only imagine how primer felt when his car got messed up, this is nothing in comparison.

Anyways, in light of these recent damages I think I'm going to sell my car. I can barely handle it when some scratches the paint, I don't know how I would react if something serious happened. I also am currently trying to buy a house and pay for a wedding and an engagement ring. I'll have about $1000 or more at my disposal every month if I got rid of her.

Thoughts, comments, and hate mail are all welcome

:( :( :( :(

That definitely sucks man! I'm sure you'll get it fixed and make the best decision for your financial situation.

Your gonna sell your car just because of a few scratches?
this car is expensive and I could easily use the extra money on bills or my new house, and I also am depressed, literally depressed about "just a few scratches" I have no idea what I will do I something serious actually happens

Then I continue on and post that I will not sell the car

Wow ok just a simple question don't have to get so defensive. I did read all the posts b4 posting. You still sounded unsure, but anyway don' t get depressed about something that can be fixed. It's a car it's gonna happen.

Didn't mean to offend so please don't take it personal

When I tore up the rear end of my car, I was upset too. I thought about selling then too, but you get upset because you love the car. I understand the predicament your in, I am in a different but similar boat, fix her and enjoy her.

I know what you mean man. I was an absolute wreck (no pun intended) inside when I had that incident with the big-rig driveshaft on the highway. Watching my less than 1 year old car that had 8000 miles on it get towed away and not seeing it for the first six weeks of summer really put me in a bad way.

Aww man sorry about that. I do know how you feel. I did have the same feeling after my accident but I came to my senses. I couldn't part with my car so soon. I know that if I did, I would most likely never be able to buy another one.

You gotta change your mindset about your car bro! It's made to be driven and its gonna get beat up now and again. Battle scars, road rash and mileage. These are all achievements! One things for sure, something else will happen again. You just take it one day at a time.

And another thing, after all the crap my car has been through. image-405265088.jpg She sure looks good now!

Best post of the thread.

I've been there with another car. It got a nasty dent in the passenger door that took a while to get fixed. Not my fault, family member not paying attention. Then thing to remember is as much as you love it, it still *is* just a car and can be fixed. As primer said, these little dings are badges of honor from actually using it for what it was created for.

Oh, and buyng and house AND getting married? :eek: Congrats, and you, sir, are a masochist (I separated those two event by a few years myself).

get mud flaps or expect it to keep happening
Naw, it happened while I was parked in a parking lot and I was at the gym, it was malicious vandalism, or at the very least careless vandalism.

Lookin good, Primer!
Dude, Im OCD about my 4-month old GT and, in the span of 1 month, had leaking brake fluid eat the paint in my engine compartment, my sister-in-law put a big chip in my p/s front fender and then some chick dented up the whole effing p/s because she has no idea what maintaing a lane is. None of it my fault, but its my DD so I just expect it. If it gets into a serious accident with it, Ill sell, but unless its a garage queen, just roll with it. Sounds like you are, but I understand. I was depressed for every day of the month I was without my baby. Glad youre getting to keep yours.
PS I just got this thread title...lol
