Default She'* all mine...

I just paid off my ride today. I just got my tax refund back and used it all to pay it off 2 years early! This will be so nice not haveing car payments at all.

Now here is the down side. I have paid off three other cars in the past and I have had three other cars "blow-up" on me right after paying them off. Here is what I mean:

1) Just paid off my 1st car, a '79 Malibu Classic. A few weeks later I was driving to work when the front brakes fell off, and I mean theat literally. By the time I got to work I had no front pads, not even the backings. Nothing stops like pistons to rotors! Between that and the leaking intake, severe oil leakes, and other gremlins, the car was sold for scrap.

2) Just Paid off my 2nd car, a '83 Crown Victoria LTD. So I went and found another car I liked. The day I went to drop it off for the trade it had a small incident. I was pulling in to get enough gas to make it to the dealer where I was leaving it at when the engine stalled pulling up to the pump. Then I saw what looked like a scene from Backdraft. I saw the smoke leave the hood and then get sucked back in. So smart me ( ) opens the hood and the whole thing flames up like a bon fire. Remeber, I am 3ft from a gas pump right now! Well, got the fire out and got it to the dealer where they just took the keys without checking it out again.

3) I paid off my 3rd car, '89 Continental (HUGE POS, but that;* another story) and not 2 days later it got hit with hail. Not just a little hail, but a full blown hail storm with alot of baseball size hail. Every panel, every trim piece, 2 hub caps, mirrors, cowling, turnsignals, and windshield were all broken. The car was totaled 3 times over.

Now that I have this one paid off I am waitign for the Metior to fall down on it. I might just have to walk for a couple weeks, just to make sure the car survives...

Remeber??? no...I wasn't born until '77. My finely honed internet browsing skills tell me it was a character on the original Flinstones back around 1970-1972. I guess he was a little hairy dude that walked around with a raincloud over his head and was a friend of Pebbles and Bam Bam. He must have been a short lived character. I only found about 30 relavant hits on SHLEPROCK and of those only 1 gave any info and even that was pretty thin.

So am I even close????

BTW: The car is still ok. I've made a point of driving my beater truck in bad weather. Don't want to tempt fate too much...
