My Car - An Automotive Tale of D.I.Y (GFX)

Postby SporkAndrew » Fri Aug 15, 2003 2:12 pm

So I've got this car... It's a Ford Fiesta in cream... Isn't it beautiful? (Ignore the rust "speed-hole")

Image

My Grandma couldn't afford much when she bought it, back in 1986, so it's the most basic of the basic models... There's no mod-cons such as air conditioning or electrics for a radio, no sir... A cigerette lighter you say? Not in my car... I thought it was a little plain, so over however long I have this beast, I'll be making it cool...

I already have the fluffy dice: (And 4 forward gears... Ace)

Image

And a trip to a scrapyard got me this extra toggle switch, which I painted red and stuck a NOS sticker to... (Note the manual choke... Shows how advanced this car is...)

Image

And because every dashboard needs one, I went to Maplin and got myself a big red button:

Image

If anyone's got any ideas on something else I should do to my bitchin' fast car, that won't cost much, if anything, then do feel free to share...

You should get those flashing lights inside the car and some fake speakers so you can pretend it's Kitt

Obviously someone is grossly misinformed about American Culture.

Looks like we're not the only country that talks smack about countries we don't understand.

That speed hole crack was GOLD.

I think you need an american flag in the window, though.

And a "Support Our Troops" bumper sticker.

There's a car in the parking lot here with a bumper sticker that says "GOD, GUNS and GUTS made America -- LET'S KEEP ALL THREE". It's a somewhat unusual sentiment for Boulder.

You should get one of those. Especially because you don't live in America.

Anyway, isn't the point of guns that you don't keep your guts?

Why does one of your dice have no dots on one side?

They're second hand... They were originally my friend Emma's, but her dogs attacked them and ripped most of the spots off...

I think they're neat...

No, you keep yours. But whoever you shot is shit out of luck.

If you think that little spot of rust is bad don't make me show you my bronco. What that car really needs is some of those "classy" wheel covers, that way you can look like you spent lots of money on new rims...until you stop and people see how shitty they really are. Also, nothing gives you more street credential than those "Type R" stickers, just having those doubles your horsepower. You also need to do what i did, go to Taco Bell and steal a spork then hang it from your rearview mirror with the dice, sadly where i live things to big like those dice are illegal.

Edit: forgot to ask you something, Isn't your real name "Andrew Ballie" or something simmilar spork?
