My car is in the shop getting a new tioming belt and water pump. This is the second major maintenance (first was a new clutch). But this is the first to take more than a few hours.

I feel so lost. What is there to do in life witout my car? I work too far away to bum a ride and I'd rather stay at home anyway. I refuse to rent a lesser car (keep your damned grand Prix Enteprise and stuff the Taurus Budget!). Any suggestions will be appreciated!

learn how to hotwire cars!!! that means a new car every few hours, then ditch it! :D

that means you can have a legend for the commute to work one day, a TL for the commute home, and you can work your way up!!! hehe, i'm just playin'.

dude i'm in the same boat, my car's in the body shop for the next 7 to 10 business days, but i'm in wash dc area so subway all the way!

Take this time to reflect......Think of the good times, and about that transportation to work....get a bike (mountain if you have a lot of hills), It's great exercise, and by the time your whip gets out of the shop you will feel pure and whole knowing that you didn't betray her by riding those Tauruses and Grand Prixs.

A couple of days, ****, I ***** and moan when my car is at my mechanic for an hour or two and all i'm left doing is going home to do nothing sometimes. Im usually ok without the car since I live in The Bronx NYC and I can take the train or bus to get around or walk.

Rent the grand prix

and rag the car out all day.I got a ford escort when someone rear ended my car, and it must have had 25 percent tread when it got back to them. They don't come with 5spd from enterprise though, lucky they didnt or it would have come back on rims.

hell yeah man, that's a great idea...get a rental grand prix or mustang or whatever the hell they give you and have some fun that you wouldn't normally be able to have with your own car, cuz in the end it goes back to the rental company and not you! i got a great story about a rental experience i had in dc...well two stories. one was simply getting the whole car searched and being surrounded by lots of cops cuz me and my friends were all messed up in a park parking lot after dark but they simply let us go after not finding anything.

the second incident was i had a rental nissan sentra and i literally drove that car 'till it had no brakes left, on the highway brakes died so swerved into first exit in middle of night in ghetto's of SE DC and parked car at side of gas station. In morning when I came back for the car, the car had been completely tore up as in all slashed tires, windows broken, ripped seat belts, beer all over the car, everything ripped out....needless to say the look on the employee's face was so funny when i returned the car to the rental company on a flat bed tow truck...luckily i had their insurance for like $5 a day and had to pay nothing! gotta love the city! :D :D :D :D :D
