    Times haven't exactly been in my favor these last few months... i killed the Saturn (knowingly) and figured i'd just walk to work after it died... Well that's what i did for a few months until...


    ...UNTIL i GOT A CAR...!


    However, i certainly couldn't afford a car... Someone was nice enough to buy me one... Someone on here.

    How lucky am i...?

    i'm at The Chateau right now...

    Bruce bought me a 1997 Chrysler Sebring about a month or so ago and i've been driving it ever since, slowly paying him back...

    Without Bruce, i'd still be walking to work in the ice cold-coming winter... Bruce, thank you so much...


    It's a candy apple red with a tan interior and...


    ...AND IT'S A CONVERTIBLE...!!!

    All my life, i've always wanted a convertible...! Now i have one...!

    Bruce is the man...! Thank you, Bruce...!

    i have some pictures, but none with Scuderia shields... Once i get some and slap them on, i'll take pictures and post them... Bruce is the man...

    Thank you so much, Bruce, what would i do without a friend like you...!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    Heeey wait a second.. didn't Michael Jackson lure kids to his place with gifts and alcohol??? Watch your back! ;)

    Just kidding of course :) Congrats on the new ride! It's pretty amazing what can come from these online communities. It's especially heartening to know that someone who has his own life and problems to handle is willing to help out someone else in need. Brings a tear to my eye.... :)

    Oh yeah, don't forget pics!

    DES, you joined the website a year ago, have driven a bunch of Ferraris, gone to New Orleans and Los Angeles for Ferrari packed weekends, had rides in an Enzo, and the BREADVAN! And now, someone bought you a car :)

    Bruce is truly a GREAT guy! While we are praising him, he was nice enough to buy a 600 dollar advertisement space in the program of one of the orchestras I play in all the way out here in SoCal. What a way to support music :)

    IIRC the transmission only has one gear that still works and the engine is very near death.

    Hey, sexy! Very nice. Not only that, but it's much better than one of those sissy Diablos!

    Congrats to DES and Bruce for understanding what life is really about.

    Yeah, Bruce is really awesome... Didn't phase him that i drank all his wife's Vodka last night then gave it all back in the guest room last night, either... :)

    Entelechy... A few months ago, 5th gear and reverse stopped working on the Saturn; it needed a new transmission... Eventually (from DES-style driving), the motor started to go... i started it up yesterday for a prospective new owner (trying to give it away) and he took one quick listen, checked under the hood and knew it wasn't worth it - EVEN FOR FREE...! He said the block is ready to crack... i really killed this one... In half the time it took me to kill the Sentra and this one only had half the miles...!

    i need to grow up now, though, and take care of this car... No more silly boy-racing; the Saturn was my last chance and i blew that... This was a tremendous gift and i can't **** it up...


    Thomas, yeah, i had some guy in a Diablo pull up next to me the other day and was ogling the car... :)


    All in all, it's an awesome car; 6 cylinder, multi-vavle injected; automatic windows and remote keyless entry... AND IT'S A CONVERTIBLE...!!! i'VE ALWAYS WANTED A CONVERTIBLE...!!! WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO...!
