Default New to the bunch of bonnes

Soo....I'm the new kid in the club. My friend harofreak00 had me sign up - he said it'* the coolest thing I'll ever do. I'm sure he'* right...

Anyway, I've had my bonne a little over a year. Besides the car payments, it'* been pretty good to me. I had a little problem with it over the summer - I was leaking brake fluid really bad so I needed a new master cylinder (which was a pretty penny... $100 ) I'm a college kid - so $5 to me is a ton of money, say nothing of $100. And my car was/still is making a funny noise - almost a grinding noise. Andrew, aka harofreak00, says it'* just my supercharger. A coupler of some sort - I hope that'* all it is.

But now today, sprouted another problem - I'm leaking antifreeze. Coming home from college on Friday my driver'* info center told me there was low coolant. So, I got lucky and went to my uncle'* house in town. There didn't seem to be any leaks, we just added water until I could get home - it seemed to be working fine until today (Sunday) when it said low coolant again. I parked my car and let it sit - huge puddle of antifreeze over the driveway. There'* hardly any antifreeze left in my car - the reservoir is almost completely empty. My dad checked over the car (but let me tell you he'* no mechanic) - and said something about the water pump leaking. I dunno - my air conditioner isn't working very well lately...(I dont know if that'* a clue at all)...so life sux in bonne-ville right now....

I'm getting it fixed this week though - so I'm without a car until the weekend. It'* not like I have anything to do besides homework anyway - college is my life.

Well, have a great day and hope to talk and get to know some of you soon.

Like every car, they do have the moments. Don't forget it is 10 years old, all cars that old have there problems and bonnies are no exception to the rule.

But..... you gotta admit.... they are an attitude adjuster aren't they? Nothing feels better than kickin' that ricers *** with a big sedan.

SO I talked with my Dad today and he said I needed a new water pump - I about peed my pants when he told me he was just kidding...

It'* just the hose that runs from the water pump to the engine - completely busted. The mechanic just touched the hose and it busted - he said I was darn lucky I made it home from school.

So overall - good news. I'll have my bonne back soon and then be able to race harofreak00 and hopefully kick his butt (even though he has much more experience in racing). My bonne is still the coolest - and even if it wasn't, at least I got it first. :P

Andrew will beat you, he'* got a smaller pulley on his supercharger for more power, and a better intake for more air.

If you have the smaller SC pulley, you should put that in your signature in place of 'stock'.

Freak'* intake may be offset by the weight of his audio equipment Might be a close race.
