tires wobbling BIG TIME!!!


Ah, the joys of anonymous web activity.

Unlike some tone deaf readers, I hear ya on the metaphor, and have driven more than one vehicle until the 'wheels fell off'. Sometimes budgets dictate making that choice.

Who's the real idiot?
My truck has over 300k miles on it and the engine was just about the only origional part on it besides the body and frame. If you paid attention I said I paid $400 for this CAR after my truck died. And this piece of **** dodge dynasty isn't worth fixin as I come to realize. My truck is back on the jobsite so I basically got a free car to run into the ground. I think I'm gonna enter the demolition derby just before winter

Drive it until it can't be fixed reasonably. Frame rusted through, engine or tranny blows, hey, junk it and buy another $400 car. My previous car cost $2500 and i drove it for 10 years before some guy totalled it while it was parked. Current car cost me $1800 and i will be driving it until at least 2020.

Yea this CAR is already on borrowed time. I look at it this way... In order to go to work I need to drive. What I paid for this car was less than a taxi or renting a car for a week. Therefore I made a profit. Add the gas mileage compared to my dually, and I scored. The pick a part will give me $350 for it so its all good. Got my truck and got my journeyman position so ill be buying my chrystler 300 next month. And I can pull my sounds out before the pick a part takes it
