My parents got me good too.

Get out of work today, still driving the tempo because of insurance, and i need to burn gas out of it anyway. Had a voicemail, my mom was in tears, told me to go straight over there, she needs to tell me something, but she can't do it over the phone. I figured her mom passed away or something. That was one of the longest drives ever . get to their house, where the car was, only to find the car not there. I get in, ask where my car is, and my dad says that they dont know, and shows me a paper that had bold print on the top, stolen vehicle report. looked pretty official too. Mom comes up from the back, in tears. Say she is sorry, left the car running, ran inside to grab her wallet, came out, and it was gone. she felt really bad because now she has to replace it. they drag on that they need to go back to the dealership, get the info for the car, proof of ownership and stuff. we went over, but the dealership was closed already, they gave me the bit about him being there for a littlebit, but he had to leave. and gave me the impression that we just missed him. then there was a mention that he would prolly be up at a middle school for a game or something. so they started heading in that direction. going up the road, getting near the school, my mom lets me see the paperwork, i look at it, and i notice a familiar name on the bottom, tanya sanchez, the person that turned in front of me in february. I was like WTF? Then they swing a left into the trailer park near the school, where a friend of ours lives, and sure enough, there is my car in the driveway of his place. best burn ever.

There was also some interesting fortune cookie messages that i got later when we went out to eat. I cant remember the exact text, will post them when i get them again, they are in my car right now. they will prolly be taped in the interior when i get a chance. very fitting to the situation though.

BTW, i need a camera :(

i cant believe someone would steal a running car like that. Seems like a high chance of getting shot especially in a shady neighborhood.

Just remembered, now the radiator is cracked too. looks like it has been like that for a while because there is flaky stuff all over the air box and intake hose too. So, should the dealer cover that, or is it on me? The paperwork mentions a 15 day/500 mile warranty. what do you guys think?

And its Medium Garnet Red Metallic... Keep that sucker clean and the paint polished/sealed...

For the Radiator...

Get one from Radiator Express... Should be 135 or so to your front door... And you may even be able to get the HD Radiator for about the same price.. They are all at the lease 1 " core as opposed to stock...lol
