my car is mad at me... too funny

so the roadmaster i normally drive everyday is obviously pissed off at me... and i hate when he does this. i think i might know why...



mistake #1:
before christmas i parked him for a while so i could drive the formula to work a few days... well that turned into a few weeks (cuz i was just enjoying driving WarBird too much)... and i just knew Silvio (the roadmaster) would get jealous. he was just stewing over the fact that i was driving another car... he has done that before.

mistake #2:
well, then Scott's cousin came in town and needed to borrow a car. so i lent him Silvio to tool around in for a week or so while he was in town. i bet Silvio was cursing me every time Scott's cousin got behind the wheel.

well, around new year's i started driving Silvio again cuz Scott got me a new stereo for him. and i've been driving him now for a few weeks and i thought maybe all was forgiven since he got some bump in the trunk. but then i must have pissed him off more cuz i made...

mistake #3:
i promised to give him a bath last Sunday and didn't follow through. we just got busy around the house and i never got around to it.

so now, i'm paying for my mistakes... notice this is all happening on the driver's side. i'm obviously being punished for my transgressions.

in the past few days:
1. driver's window has fallen off the track
2. driver's door molding has fallen off
3. driver's door top chrome trim has started rubbing on the rear door's trim causing it to crack and separate from door
4. transmission has started acting up
5. air bag light came on (he only has one on the driver's side)

anyone have any advice on how to make up to my car so he stops breaking things??

this weekend is supposed to be cold, but i'm thinking maybe i ought to follow up on that bath before something else breaks. crazy roadmaster... should've been a girl car named Christine.

Bulldozer.

Maybe threaten to send it to that Canadian Redneck who bashes cars up all the time (the one who couldn't kill the 3800 Buick).

man, you are harsh.

i think with a little love, Silvio will be back to being nice. i couldn't give him up to cash for clunkers, i certainly couldn't see him bulldozed.

Ok, here's a better idea: Offer to turn him into a pro-touring beast.

Maybe take him for a few drinks (High Octane Only). Nice rub down (detailing). Go for a nice long drive with those new tunes playing. Wear some nice heels to press his pedals with.

yup. i remember that thread. and no matter what anyone else says, i believe cars have personalities and can sometimes act just like people. it's just too much to call it coincidence.
