There's a "tale" about a guy that special ordered a new truck from the dealership, all the extras and goodies. On the day it comes in, he goes over to pick it up.

After doing all the paperwork, he goes over to his old truck, pulls out a hammer, hauls back, and puts a serious dent in the side of his new truck. The shocked salescritter picks his jaw up off the ground and asks whe he did that to his brand new truck.

The guy answers "Now, I don't have to worry about the first dent."




Some things have to be put into prespective, I guess.

After all, it's just an old car.
Family life and I turned my 450SL show car into a beater over my 15 year ownership.
I know, I know. But still, a little pride resides under the aloof Nob facade.

Kidding.....I take true pride in the PIG's reliability.

But try selling a reliable dented car.

Im close to the $20K mark in mine, but I now feel comfortable driving my kids in it (safe and reliable).

And it looks good :D
