Default Who hates spending money on their car?

Buyer's regret!

Just ordered a Sunoco hood since the discount price on them is so nice.


Ugh, my bank account feels so abused and violated.

Oh well, at least the hood will look bad ***!

I'm tired of spending money just to keep my Formula lt1 running! - ontop of the hours and hours of work. . . .I'm like 1,500 just in replacing parts that where abused by previous owner.

hell this weekend i finally replaced the gastank and fuel pump to my car since the previous owner pretty much f-ed that thing up by drilling holes into it to "replace" the fuel pump. . .such a horrible idea.

Doesnt matter if its a repair or upgrade part, I have a hard time buying nowadays. I realized this the other day when I purchased a $500 plane ticket with no reservations , doubts, or hangups. Then I went to buy my bottle heater...$125 on sale....I sat with that window open for about 3 hours before I pulled the trigger.

Maybe with my somewhat older age I realize Im spending alot of money on something that Ill never see again, Im finally seeing it as a bad investment, but I dont buy it for the investment purposes, I try to justify it as the price of fun, of the hobby. It kinda works. Maybe Im getting old.

I do the same thing.

Just sit there looking at the order menu wondering if I really want to press the button.

I keep 'em stock and drive the crap out of them. Not as fast as all of y'all's but I have other things to spend money on!!! But, my buddies cars with 400 and 500 at the rear wheels make me feel like I am driving a Kia, LOL.

I regretted buying my car. I only pay $207 a month too. After an hour of driving it though I got over that. Then I regretted buying my LT's and ORY. After I got on it with the cutout open though I had a huge smile on my face. It's an expensive hobby, but some people spend money on dumber **** than we do.

I like spending money on replacement parts that will actually help the car feel new again. Replacement parts for the hell of it, or wear parts sucks.
