About

What can i say well my mother bought it in 1997 as a rental car Oh Boy!!!. it had 17000 miles on it and after a a couple months it started to acted up it would idle at about 2500 RPMs and the idiots at the dealership couldnt fix it. So my mom drove for like eight year didnt put that much mile on it and when my sister was old enough to drive she drove, she put 60,000 miles on it in one year who the hell does that. Then a couple years later my mom bought a brand new 300c so she gave me her car once again Oh Boy!! The windows leaked there was a lake in my car the came apart on my while i was driving the didnt work the dash lights were messed up the truck wouldnt open the brakes were shot the speedo was off not a big deal i was always speeding and she had the nerve to me i if i want it i need to pay $1500 for it. So after freaking out on her i got it for free again and i slowy started fixing parts and when i got them all fix i spin a main bearing. I was mad but over the summer i found a engine put it in and got it running but then i screwed something up in a good way. it had more power no rev limited and it did about 140 when its limited for like 110-115. Then after awhile my trany went out no big surprise i lost first gear. Then i started to get tickets from cops for speeding and the one ticket i love i passed a cop on the highway doing 80 her truned his lights on. So i kicked it down and i hit 100 by then i passed one of my buddies i was coming up to the off ramp and got off still doing 80 and my buddy took the offramp too, but he said he want about 20. So i come to a stop and i turned right and i dont have first gear Hold on Acceration right there. and the cop caught up to me at school and he pulled me over and just wrote me a ticket for speeding he didnt even ask question about running. So he gave me the ticket walked away and my car over heated and shut off. So after i lost 24 points and had to pay $800 in tickets i had to sell her i didnt want to, but my one of my buddies said he would buy it and take care off it and when i get the money i could buy it, but before i could buy i he finished off the trany and sold it to a junk yard were today it still sits. i have the main set off key to it i thought about going there throwing a battary in it and driving away but i got to many project and plus i think my mom would shot me if she seen that car again.
