That's funny, as well as all the comments.  Nuthin' like a big F-U, to some arrogant snot.

EM, that sucks.  Sorry to hear that, but everybody's different...  I'm a little more lucky.  My wife supports me getting an eagle, as long as I support her stuff.   Our daily driver is over 10 years old, and I'm doing ma best to keep it running good.

It turns out one of my nebihors does hate my car.  She told one of my co-workers who happens to be her grandson.  "That if I hear him start that thing again I'll beat the ---- out of him." you can fill in the blank.

Time to buy a Gamma Goat and then start it up.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gama_Goat    We used to drive them around sedate upscale neighborhoods once in awhile.  The two unmarked toggle switches on the dash are for the bilge pumps -- not a good idea to discover what they are for on multi-lane highways where others are coming up along side you to pass.

Thanks IE, couldn't remember if all 6 pulled or not. Just checked your wikipedia thingie. Thought they were 4 cyls., only 3. Definitely remember the noise factor & can vouch for the " quirky steering ". Never got out of the motor pool with it & didn't want to.

Don't know if it's 'cause they're AMCs or just 'cause the neighbour's an *** but I have come home to 'abandoned car' stickers several times in the past year. They got lucky last October when I was away for a few days visiting my ailing mom. Came home to find the J10, Concord, and Spirit towed to the impound yard. Cost 650$ to get them out. My Sentra parked on the other side was not part of the fracas.

they had a Gamma Goat on gears once those things will go almost anywhere, and yes they are loud and the highway is a bad but funny place to find out what the switches do. as for whiny a** neighbors who like putting abandoned car stickers on cool a** cars just remember two can play at that game.

Get a set of doors in an off colour from yours. Swap them randomly each week.

My Dad used to build those at a naval yard in upstate NY.They would run them down to the Mohawk River to test them.
