I feel like my car is never going to be back to it's glory days, but in my case it's just lack of money, everything is so expensive here because of the taxes applied. And don't get me started about the laws for riding low...

Also, we are the salvation of our own cars, overcoming the problems is really just a part of it. If we give up they will certainly die. So don't!

I've come so close to giving up on my 500SE so many times now. I can't find stable work and it needs just short of a full resto, there's always another problem around the corner with it. But I'm too stubborn and I love the car too much to give up on it.

My current one is mostly cooperative, though it has apparently decided that I am under no circumstances to not have a squeaking blower fan

My first car, a B13 Sentra, had a fun trick where it would just shut off randomly when you were driving. Never did figure it out. Ironically, my girlfriend used to have a B14 Sentra that did the exact same thing. Of course, hers may have been more a product of having been crashed a few times and being "rebuilt" by a bunch of drunk Russians.

My old Dodge had a cool trick where when driving northbound on I-5, right after the I-405S interchange here in town, the speedometer and tachometer would drop to zero for about a mile, then start working again. Never happened anywhere else, only at that interchange, and only going northbound. Who knows...

That is basically the story of my Integra. Every nut, every bolt, every single damn thing either didn't want to budge, or broke on its way out/in. Not from user error either, as I've done plenty of this stuff on other cars with zero issues. I think it's sentient because as the build draws near completion, she's starting to give me less of a hard time.

I couldn't help but think of the Devil Z from Wangan Midnight when I saw this thread.

I think everyone knows the movie Christine...

So i was sitting in my vert in front of a girls house, she got in, i tried to start the car...
Guess what, it didn't start...
She said: "If your radio starts to play rock 'n' roll, i'm out..."

My wagon, sometimes when you accelerate and then lift the pedal,
the right rear window sounds like a giant mosquito.., sometimes it's not
happening at all...


I don't even want to think about it...

My Mk6 TDI has been just fine.

That jackass in my sig is a completely different story. If I hadn't sold my gun before I moved, there would've been a good collection of 9mm holes in it.

My Mercedes has tried to kill me on multiple occasions. Even cut it's own brake lines once upon a time. My build thread is full of fucked up stories. I'm not completely sure how the car hasn't come up totaled or killed me by now honestly.

Moh, the reason your car is so fucked is because too many people have had a hand in "building" it.

Every car is going to fight you when you start taking it apart, especially when it's 15+ years old and has seen some winter weather.


Sometimes you just need a nice, tall glass of manthefuckup with some swearing amidst the process of reassembly.

I life on a farm, and we drive around the farm in a old Suzuki Samurai. Its the car I learned to drive in, shift stick and basic wrenching.
Two years ago, however, the front brakes were completely locked up, and we(the lazy farmers that we are) decided to take the front brakes off completly.
Bolt in the brakecylinder and off we go, only rear brakes...
The fucked up car trows out the bolt everytime I drive towards a ditch...
That with random rattles and engine knocks comming and going. Love **** relationship...

My Genesis. I love the car but damn, sometimes its a bitch. The two big ones are it not wanting to be on air ride due to the fact almost nothing worked, or when the slave cylinder blew and she spit everything on the pavement.

Or the need for it to sometimes answer phone calls through BT. Not all the time, just sometimes.

First built W201 is a superb so far.. started to lose some oil on somewhere.. no blue smoke but im pretty sure it burns it trough breather.. will just fill, next oilchange will use thicker oil..

the 2nd W201 build moving slower than was planned altho. 1 year in and chassis is pretty much done. its kinda hellish working with it. doing all the work by my self and not getting any discounts on any parts so high buck on each part.. eating out my wallet like termite!

i've got a french car. those are in general a huge pain in the ass to work on.. Slammed a few mk2 and 3 golfs before and that job was done in a few hours. Only the rears of my Saxo took me 2 days because i needed to figure out how the hell that torsion suspension worked. Need to lower it some more in the near future and can't say i'm looking forward to it.

My 99 EM1's head unit and sunroof randomly stop working whenever they please. Relays checked, completely re-did the head unit harness, everything. Randomly the sunroof won't close and the radio will just shut off depending on the road you decide to drive on.
