Agree wholeheartedly, salt trucks should be destroyed on sight. They rust the hell out of our cars, and ruin the road surface () In the summer I try to scout out for gravel trucks though. A nice windy gravel road is perfect for a few runs after one of them has renewed the road surfaceI'm doing my best to avoid road salt trucks on my daily commute, but they seem to sneak upon me and spread the corroding crap in front of me.
Fear of salt trucks is for people with nice cars! I even freely belt past them when I come up them on the freeway.I'm doing my best to avoid road salt trucks on my daily commute, but they seem to sneak upon me and spread the corroding crap in front of me.
After a couple of years the nice white shade will have turned into a nice brown shade..Fear of salt trucks is for people with nice cars! I even freely belt past them when I come up them on the freeway.
By the end of winter my Focus is a nice shade of road salt white, and it wears that with pride.
Agh... the 1st and second scratches are always the worst.I caused the second scratch in my car today.
I usually wash + polish the car before winter first, then let it get real dirty, and only wash it again after winter/salty junk is over. I do like the coat of white stuff on the car, it looks so much better when it's absolutely filthyBy the end of winter my Focus is a nice shade of road salt white, and it wears that with pride.
I'm guessing I don't have to explain to you why I own Jaguars, then.I was standing at the gas station, fueling the Fuckus, when up to the adjacent pump pulls a glorious, immaculately clean black XJR. Talked to the guy who got out, and found out he's a salesman at the dealership across the street, and they're just putting that car out. I went over there IMMEDIATELY, and straight off test drove the thing.
Oh. My. God. I'm IN LOVE. I thought the Focus and I had something on that first drive - but THIS. OH GOD.
Essentially, I was ready to buy it straight away, screw all reason - until I asked how much.
$17,999. For a 1995 XJR. Immaculate, but still worth at an absolute maximum half that. Bastard wouldn't come down AT ALL.
I'm, quite frankly, heartbroken.
What an idiot. In a year's time go back and laugh at him still failing to sell it, or laugh at however low a price he's had to drop it to.
You could go back to them with a printout of this and see what they do: http://www.kbb.com/KBB/UsedCars/PricingReport.aspx?YearId=1995&VehicleClass=UsedCar&ManufacturerId=23&Condition=Excellent&ModelId=158&PriceType=Retail&VehicleId=7953&Mileage=50000&SelectionHistory=7953|31838|17101|0|0|I drive by this dealership every day. They do brisk business with idiots who don't know what a car is worth. I can't blame them for pricing it that high if they know they can get rid of it at that price, but it's just wrong to not have let the petrolhead who already CLEARLY knows all about the bloody car, and thus how much it should cost drive it before pointing out just how much of a ripoff you're trying to pull.
