I'm sure many have a story about the proverial "Ex"....

The 1st one came standard with a 2 year manufacturer warranty, and I opted for the 5 year extended warranty beyond that. She was a real looker too! Minor problems during the initial warranty period, and the manufacturer was a real pain in the backside to deal with. Extended warranty was a real rip off. Manufacturer refused to honor it. Gave up dealing with the manufacturer completely, and tried to fix the problems myself. Started doing some maintenance (without the service manual of course), took off the cover plate and springs, knobs, screws and parts flew everywhere. Major problem! Re-assembly must have shorted out some stuff. Damn thing never warmed up above freezing after that and the audio was just WIDE OPEN and none of the knobs worked! Manufacturer got back involved without my asking...tellin' me I voided the warranty. What a mess! Manufacturer wouldn't stay out of the equation now.

Got really upset. Went for the "frame off" major overhaul and rebuild. Seemed like it worked pretty well for a while. Fouled the plugs a lot, but that cleared up when she ran on pure alcohol. Mileage went to heck, and the fuel bill was outrageous and growing each month. Manufacturer kept getting involved tryin' to tell everyone how the real problem was everything BUT their product. Typical. When she started burning 4 liters per day (easy), I started getting the paperwork in order for sale. Quickly realized that I didn't have a clear title! Major braindamage getting the leinholder's off the title. Real circus. Fortunately the unit had never spun off any clones or subdivided. Else I would have been in some deep doo doo!

Didn't know it at the time, but there had been a buyer keeping track of her whereabouts from the shadows for some time. Have reason to believe he even took her for a test drive without my permission when I was overseas. He eagerly offered me way above wholesale for her and I jumped at it. HA, poor sap! Serves him right though! She had a complete meltdown about 6 months after I unloaded her. Threw a serious rod, busted the crank and the camshaft. Central ignition computer completely FRIED. Carb caught on fire and one of the wheels got badly damaged when he allowed her to get over-fueled and crash while navigating some stairs. After that she had to spend about 4 months at a specialized shop to correct the carburation and fuel system problems. Last time I saw her, the wheel still appeared to be a problem (she wasn't tracking straight). Still see her from time to time. Body looks straight, but boy-o-boy do I ever know about the bondo under THAT paint job!

...and this wasn't even about a car!

Still not over her I see.
I have no problems at all with any of my ex's, I live a good life and I believe they do too.
The best revenge is to live well.

Over her? Heh, no that's not an issue at all. We actually get along just fine now.

Life is good. Just fun to look back on.

Must have bought from the same dealer.
My warranty didn't cover future developements, Still paying for it, and the dealer went down years ago

Thank you, all, for the kind words. I like to write this stuff. They are all slices of a life which, if you cannot enjoy it, is very boring indeed.

Some look back on history with disdain. Finding some levity in the past only makes the future more fun.

Thanks.

Luck you for having a real relationship / marriage. I was setup with a fake wife by tptb. Monitored by them thu her as well as she tryed to minpulate me into doing things. I figured it out early. And made her life living h#ll lol secretly of corse. Over her i have been forever. But not over what i was put through and still am. They have been trying to set me up with another one of there trained puppets. And that is something i refuse to allow to let happen. If i do end up with another and i figure it out. The things i will do this time will be much worst. Seriously people there are alot of puppet wifes running around for the tptb. Hypno slaves. My exwifes new man is a fool lol.
Cant wait till he finds out lol. Or maby i will help him find it lol

Peace!! ID
