    I am waxing my car--at 9:30 at night under my porch light.

    G.T. R.I.P February 4, 2007. You will be missed.

    Waxing your car at 9:30 at night is dedication.

    Waxing your car every night at 9:30 would be obsession.

    You haven't gone over the line yet.

    Of course, posting to an internet forum while waxing your car might qualify as an obsession of another kind. :D

    Better than waxing by flashlight.
    The bright side of this is dont have too worry about the sun baking the wax on!

    Hey ya got a PC out there too?

    LOL, I was posting between coats.

    scorcer, my wax says let it dry :D

    Gold Class Clear Coat Car Wax

    Horribly sticky stuff.

    I just finished. Wiping on and off wax with a porch light and a little flashlight takes skill.

    Or stupidity.

    We'll find out in the morning :)

    car: 850
    getting it approved: 25
    taxes: 224 (per year)
    insurance: 608 (per year) (cheapest, no insurance for people driving along with me, no insurance in case I need a lawyer etc...)

    total: € 1707,-

    geezuz the insurance is heafty... but its classed a hot hatch still and is subjected to increased premiums + your age doesnt help either, I only saw a decrease in my premiums on the likes of 1.4/1.6ltr cars when I reached 25 :(

    but you must get that car as they are a hoot to drive.

    Ah, yes... Cars are definetly a labor of love, and an obsession for some.

    I've been there...

    Changing brakes at 11:00 p.m.

    Changing U-Joints at 4:30 a.m. to make it to a car show in time thats 3 hours away.

    Replacing a starter in a Burger King parking lot.

    Changing oil in the pouring rain...when it's 12 degrees outside.

    It's a guy thing. My wife will never understand :p

  14. fleppen

    fleppen Gumshoe

    hehe it is indeed a guy thing :D

    which is why i'm going to ask my dad to loan me the money for that car and not my mom ;):D

  16. fleppen

    fleppen Gumshoe

    hehe thanks :)

    I need a couple of excuses why I need that car...

    here's my current list:
    *gf lives one hour with train away, train == annoying + expensive
    * it's cool
    * it's cool
    * i want it
    * i'll quit smoking for it :p

  28. Adrynalyne

    Adrynalyne Guest

    ROFL, it didn't start getting too cold for the wax until about 10:30pm ;)
  29. Kodo


    Who here thinks Adryn should be exposed to our temps for 30 days and forced to drive in the blizzards with his Accord..

    ME ME ME ME ME!!! :p
  30. Adrynalyne

    Adrynalyne Guest

    OMG, no!

    I've heard stories of what snow and salt on the road does to cars ;)
  31. Kodo


    why not experience it for real!!! MUAHHAAHAH!!!!
  32. Adrynalyne

    Adrynalyne Guest


    Can I borrow your car?

  33. jarcher

    jarcher I can't handle a title

    I second that, where's the snow in those pics? to much sun

  34. Adrynalyne

    Adrynalyne Guest

    Thats not on the inside of the car.

    Smart ass ;)


    At least the big parts.

    In front of the door and behind it.

    Nice. I'm not much for imports, but looks sharp!

    Yeah, it's sad. I'm into Classics and am always on the lookout for 50's - 60's project cars. It's almost impossible to find anything that isn't a complete rust-bucket up here in the Northeast. Floorpans, trunks, battery tray...forget it. All rusted out with giant holes.

    They dump so much salt on my street at even the slightest dusting of snow, that our freshly paved street two years ago is now full of potholes!

    It's supposed to snow here for two days straight starting Saturday eve :mad:

    Your lucky!

  36. Adrynalyne

    Adrynalyne Guest

    I keep hearing that ;)

    In regards to imports, its an NA only car :)

    Still classify as an import?
  37. Kodo


    no, but I can tow yours if you want.. BWAHAHAH!!! :)

    71 Merc. Couger, replaced starter in a Salvation Army parking lot, they said move or we will tow it (nice guys), so I walked 3 miles to get a new starter, 2 weeks later, charging system fried, battery blew up in front of a tow yard! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    God, I LOVED that car, 351 Cleaveland,, YEOW!!

    Murphys Law strikes again.

    I pulled my car out for the pics and my pine trees are currently shedding pollen--and sap.

    Which is now speckled all over my car.

    I second that idea, its crazy up here. Driving is horrendous right now. And the salt makes things look like crap.
