Never drink 20+ PBRs at a bar and ride in the passenger seat of YOUR Bonneville. I'll spare the details, but I'll say shop vacs will not fit in the map pocket on the door panel, and vomit STINKS!

Also never let drunks eat Taco Bell in the backseat, lettuce and cheese goes everywhere.

I treat mine as well as I can, but long trips are kind of my specialty so there is definately plenty of eating and drinking in the car. Leather seats are the best for that though...spills wipe right up. It also spends a lot of time dirty inside and out (not trashed, but dirty) because I can never find the time to clean it (I did yesterday though, and it is so nice to have it clean again).

Hmmm, how about...

Never park it in a really tight parking lot even if it is the most convenient one (we get hit all the time because our nose sticks out too far)

Never let a stupid friends climb up on the roof (we never got the knee-prints out )

Never spray glass cleaner inside the car with the CD player on (it stopped working for days...thank God it dried out and plays CDs again).

I never parck near anyone in a parking lot.....grocery store,wal-mart,hardware store etc. Even though she is 6 years old I don't want to get any door dings if I don't have to.

Hell...I even have a special parking place at work that has plenty of room on both sides and everyone at work respects that!!!!!!!!!!
