really surprised that she did not go after the retirement. Not really the retirement but the benefits.


Divorce is not something that I want to go through or put my kids through.

I sure miss it though, I had a "rare" (for that car) one at that: brilliant white with black leather interior + 6 speed m/t w/ turbo. I NEVER lost my car in a parking lot

I bought the accord ex coupe next and although it is quick, I have had to put a buttload of $$$ into it because the previous owner didn't know how to drive it or raced it or both..
I know the feeling on loving a car but hating it issues. I loved the BMW that I totalled, but some things on it were just stupid. Thankfully, it never really had any maintenance issues, just dumb **** that engineers should have thought of. It had these rain sensors on it that rolled up the windows if they were down and it started to rain. What it didn't do, was close the sunroof. Figured that one out the hard way. There was a **** ton more but that one really chapped my ***.

She went after my retirement. I was originally supposed to keep my Jeep. I gave up the Jeep to keep my retirement.

This is what I've heard and not from first hand experience. The h3 is only worth it with the v8. The 5 cylinder is not enough power for the the platform and results in terrible mileage. I would only own a h3 truck with the LS motor.

our neighbors in Texas had one for about 6 months. It was so small and cramped inside.... just over hyped. Now I would take an H1 any day

If anyone has a lead on 4 super dirt cheap or better yet free wheels I'm sorta looking, with tires would be even better! Don't care about condition of wheels as long as they'll hold a tire with air in it. If they have tires on them, I don't care about the condition of the tires even as long as they hold air too. Needs to be a 5 x 4.5 lug pattern (jeep TJ basically) and would prefer something that would basically fit on a TJ. Just needs to be enough to make a vehicle mobile to roll around on and that's it. I'm in no rush and won't really need for at least a month or two. If it's only the wheels without tire would prefer a 15" wheel cause tires are easy to find.

I don't know how someone can own just one vehicle. I seem to always be on the edge of breaking one and need a spare to get to work! LOL

We used to always have 3, but it was hard enough to move 2 from Texas to here. I had to drive one car out and fly back because our daughter was 2 months old at the time. I am halfway worried about only having one car while the wife is in Korea, but I will get by.

I forgot to put my 1984 XJ on the list. I owned it in Germany. She was a garage queen. I only ever drove her once. I cut the front doors down, put a homemade lift on it, and then found cracks between the subframes and body. I couldn't weld them up with my little stick welder. Tried to sell it but nobody wanted it. Eventually junked it.

In high school I had my camaro and f-150, one as a back up for the other. I was in the process of building a hot 350 to put in the camaro when the trans went out on the truck. It was great to ride my bike to school for a month with both cars down. Probably the only kid with 2 cars riding a bike to school.
