Well, as you all know............my C3 has been in the shop now for over 3 months.  All I've had to drive is my C5.  So right before Christmas, I was at a stop light waiting for it to go GREEN.  It goes green and I put the C5 in 1st and proceed to move forward, then........"WHAM"  I get hit in the rear!Shocked  Son of a Biscut Eater, what was that!!???  It was a RED Dogde NEON........was I not going fast enough for them?!  I get her info and she gets mine, I report the accident to her insurance company.
 
To make a long story short, I finally got my car back TODAY and I'm out of the Nissan Sentra Rental Car.  Man, what a BIG DIFFERENCE........I sure missed my Vette, but the little Nissan wasn't bad (at least it was transportation).  I'm thinking maybe I should get a little panty waste car to drive to work and around town and only take the vettes to special occasions.  Would this make me a panty waste??Confused

Micki, I don't think it would make you a panty waist, just wanting to keep your cars in good shape.  The way people are today, they don't care about anyone elses property; opening doors into your car, backing up and hitting your car, drunk driving, etc.  I had a friend who had his car keyed at work.  I only drive my Vette on weekends or occasions where I won't be leaving her unattended for long, never to the mall or grocery store.  I've got a small pickup truck for all the everyday trips.  Wish I could drive her everyday though.

Dang, I must have led a sheltered life. I'm 63 and that's the first time I've ever heard the word pantywaist.  I had to google it. LOL

Don't worry Miki...according to the definition it only pertains to boys. You're home free.

Panty Waste Definition
A weak male born with a great deal of female traits but with just enough male traits to get him into the boys locker room.
 
Example: Brian prances around the locker room like a freakin 'Panty Waste', he must be a ‘Dabbler’.

Gosh Micki I hope not. If so there's somethin about you I sure didn't know.................
 
I think you would be called, "A small Car Driver".

Micki;

Go for it.  I bought a 91 Honda Prelude 2.1SI for $300.  Bank says it's worth $8KRolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing

It gets 30mpg and can go anywhere and when 2 dumb Okies park on the stripes with their pickups (yeah, I own 2 of em) I can still park between them.

Out at Tinker Air Force Base, my lock-down for 8+hrs a day, you see old women (and men) put their feet on the drivers door and shove it open, right into the car parked next to them and don't even bother to look at the damage they do.  It takes too much effort to get the door open wide enough to hit the Honda.

I also found out the other nite on 71Sharks lift that if you let the factory muffler rot completely out, it sounds like one o' them trash can mufflers and you don't even have to pay extra for it!

Let's be VERY clear here.
 
My daily driver is a 94 Tempo I paid $100. for, and now have $860. in.  That's two years and 21,000 miles later     It is an underpowered 4 door that gets me around and tows my utility trailer and tiny boat.
 
AND I AIN'T NO PANTY WAIST!
 
Micky, you are indeed fine.   Should I metion the Tempo replaced a Celebrity, which replaced....... are you ready Micki.......a Sentra.
