Car finally Died

Postby Masato » Fri Aug 10, 2018 4:24 pm

Hey all

My 2004 Blue Dodge Caravan finally croaked yesterday. Had JUST bought a new battery for it but then the alternator broke and was finally time to tap out.

Bought it new in 2004 when my first kid was born, carseats and all... drove this thing many many places. It literally had holes in it and my kids say it stank like ass but I swore I'd stretch her to the very last click.

Wreckers gave me $200 bones for it.

RIP

Oh yeah, so lucky it broke down like 1 block away from my mechanic! lol

I was about to head up to another town, it would have been a pain if it had broke somewhere else.

I start pushing it down the street (rush hour, lol) and all of a sudden this Dad from my BJJ club pops out of nowhere, a big jolly strong guy like a superhero and helps finish around the corner and we roll it in to my mechanic.

I had an appointment scheduled for the next morning already :D

They laughed at me and teased me about it quite a lot, lol it was a pretty rough lookin thing they had been stringing along for several years.

About time you got rid of it

And yes it stank like ass, I was just too polite to say it

So did he bend you over his kid's booster seat before he pounded you or did he have the decency to take it out before giving you a few extra freckles?

The shittiest part is now I have to look for a new car. The missus and I are always running around doing different things, to try to share 1 car again is near impossible.

I just wanna buy some sendible used vehicle for lowest monthly payments possible, but the wife is talk in bout electric cars even though we have no money and monthly budgets stretched every month.

What you guys think of electric cars? Or buying vehicles in general? They sure make buying new easy/attractive these days, zero down zero interest etc but I always feel like I’m getting hosed getting from dealerships
