Car Talk: Another Reason to Own an Ugly Clunker

September 2nd, 2013 at 06:54 pm

You can park at the cheap uncovered long term parking without giving it a second thought.

Hail? Bird doo-doo? So what?

Theft? Not very likely!

Gas siphoning? Good luck getting the gas door open! One of the many "cosmetic" flaws of our 14-year-old golden chariot is a gas tank door that stopped working properly sometime last year. We have to pull up the release lever and wedge something under the lever to hold it up (we carry a screwdriver in the console for that purpose, then go and pry open the gas door. Good luck getting that door open if you don't know the system.

    Yeah, at about that age our car was frequently left unlocked. Sometimes we even fake-frowned when we saw our car still parked in the driveway the next morning.

    Plus no self-respecting thug wants to be caught plinking around with an ugly car. About the only person remotely interested is the joyrider, but even then, he would use it to get girls .... of which your car would act as a contraceptive.

    Funny! I once went out for drinks with some people who had a company car that was REALLY old & ugly. Before we headed in to the bar, the guy who was driving tossed the key on to the roof of the car.
