ohh.... that reminds me the time I broke the "no eat/drink" rule in my car...
I was drinking a can of pop at the track, and I had to get something out of the car, I sat in the drivers seat and put the pepsi in the door cup holder. I found what I was looking for... got out of the car... and closed the door. 1/2 a second later I remembered the pepsi in the door cup holder.... well I spent the next 5mins quickly cleaning it off everything. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be... but it was still bad.

oh yea... forgot to mention no smoking in my rides.... figured that was a given since I don't allow eating or drinking.

Ya, that'* what I'm thinking, too.

I use the car as a car! It'* not a beater by any means, nor do I ever beat on it. But I bought it for the purpose of driving it and to crank the miles on. Honestly, I can't remember the last time I washed it. The interior isn't trashed, but there is dirt on the floor and lots of dust on the dash!

And....if I have to haul 2x4s, that pass through panel from the trunk to the back seats is handy!

put another car engine in the trunk. I saw a black SSE or SSEi, with a complete engine in the trunk with the trunk lid open. That car was riding so low, it was crazy. What was that person thinking?????

DONT:

-shift from reverse to drive and stomp on the gas before the gears found their home.

-leave a trolling motor battery in the trunk for too long without securing it (i have no more trunk lining, cushining, or cargo net. All ruined from battery acid eating through them.)

-let your friends have the keys

-try to tow a beemer out of a ditch
