Default Things to do in KC when your Bonneville is dead

0. Order a new used motor.

1. Stop shaving.

2. Detail the dishwasher.

3. Wait for mechanic to put in new used motor.

4. Try to stop the erosion between your sea wall and the lake by hauling buckets of dirt from one end of the yard to another for 3 days.

5. Learn new used motor is DOA. Order a new new used motor.

5. Wash your dishes, notice that you are now standing in a large puddle, then notice your garbage disposal has a terminal leak.

6. Get a dog.

7. Detail the fridge.

8. Order a new garbage disposal.

9. Wait for mechanic to pick up new new used motor.

10. Watch the lake rise 3' during 4 days of rain.

11. Watch lake rise over sea wall and wash away all the dirt you hauled.

12. Begin to question own sanity.

13. Put in garbage disposal.

14. Wait for mechanic to take out old new used motor and put in new new used motor.

15. Decide to shave. Notice your beard trimmer is dead. Spend 2 hours shaving a full beard with disposable razors.

16. Detail trash compactor.

17. Find out mechanics house flooded during the rains. Continue to wait for the new new used motor to be put in.

18. Begin to seriously doubt sanity. Notice yourself having conversations with various household appliance, muttering such things as: "Don't even think about breaking." and "In the old days, they built things like you to last".

See, with me everything comes down to money and the lack of it everytime I get paid. So, if you had the money to replace the new used motor, the new new used motor, the garbage disposal etc, then Id say you've done alright for yourself.

Now if you had to wait a period of over a couple of months to save enough money to replace the above, then ****, your having a bad day......and you know what sucks? some poor bastid has it worse than both of us!!

<~~~ some poor basitd

Things to do to so you can enjoy driving your car.
Mess up motor with 180K glorius trouble (semi) free miles, blame it on the Macaroni White Curse
Detail engine bay/subframe
Get used freakin motor
See motor die and blame it on the Canadian Curse
Get new used motor, realized you can pull motor in 2 hours.
Find friend to remove the f'n valve springs for the 4th time.
Put motor back in with only velcro holding it.
Start enjoying motor until stopping at a light. Hear free revving and realized the trans died. Blame it on the Queenie White Curse
Find out that 2 man power can push a Bonne almost 1/2 mile.
Tow Bonne and think how the car is saving gas money when it'* broken.
Pull transmission into the late evening with mechanic buddy.
Realize you are hosting a Bonneville car meet without a Bonneville in the yard.

Never saw me sleep did ya?
