Well, here's an interesting story:
So I saw smoke cmonig from under my hood, and it was in the shop for analysis. It appeared to be a bad seal, and given the conditions of the engine and body, would have been terminal. So I go to dinner with my girlfriend & her best friend (plus her friend's husband). They ask "where's your Supra?" and I tell em. Here's where the fun begins. The husband says "you know, I've gotta Honda accord I'll sell ya for 750 bucks".
This is an 80+ accord crap-o-rama, it's been sitting for 2 years, no interior, body shot, and engine (if it did run) was the wussie econo-type. So I say respectfully:
"What?? Are you crazy?? Why would I want a junk heap like that? Going froma Supra to that... I'd rather get something else."
So he goes "Well, it's a fixer upper."
"Duh! If I wanted a fixer upper, I'd stick with my car, fix it, and be better than the accord"
"Well, you could take the engine out and drop it right in your car, it'd probably be really easy"
"That doesn't make any sense! So you want me to take your shitty car, pull the engine, and put it in mine? I'd get a 7M and be better off!"
"Well, the car's fine, it just needs an interior, I'm just trying to get you a deal"
"Well, my car's worth more than 750 now, your's isn't worth that new, and if I need a new car it's gonna be a Toyota Supra or MR2"
"Well, you think you'll ever even find one of those at a reasonable price? Good luck with that. My car will be here when you need it."
"I won't. I'd rather buy a bicycle than have anything to do with it. I'll solve my own problems"
I coulda punched this guy. Complete idiot. And BTW, my car is fine, some oil just leaked outta the drain plug onto the exhaust at high speed. Did find it has a somewhat leaky headgasket tho, but it's fine to drive now. Stupid jerk. Just wanted to vent.
He dosen't know anything about Supras, or probably even hondas. Drives a dodge durango, thinks he's cool. I'm glad my car's fine. If he gets that accord running, I'm going to destroy it in any race... I'd feel a little better 8)
