Times you were bad to your car
>finally clean out the passenger side seat
Guess you cleaned it atleast
how the hell do people live like this
I wouldn't say I'm pedantic about keeping my car clean but I basically never leave garbage in it
Went too fast down my driveway 5mph) and the beached the bitch.

i used to work night shift 9pm-5am years back, i went from having a spotless car to a back seat amassed in McDonalds wrappers. night shift fucks with you
I've been bad to my 2005 cavalier for about 3ish years now
When i first got it (right after high school) i thought i was gonna mod it and make it dope i thought i could outrun mustangs in it and so on
about a year or 2 down the road after a turn of events i ended up with a 96 miata for about a grand 3x the car for a third of the price + girls liked it
From that point on i became the typical cavalier owner not waxing it anymore avoid maitnance for very long periods of time 7kish miles between oil changes i had bad struts for at least a year and a half all sorts of road noise ive been avoiding and all the crackling and rattleing everywere ive avoided by upgrading the speaker system so i dont have to hear it
she deserves better but no one would treat her as nice as i did when i first got her who would ever wax an automatic cavalier ?
>3100 miles oil change interval instead of 3000 miles
I used to own a 3g eclipse, and with how low it sat and how far out the front bumper was, it scraped on any relatively sharp driveway if I didn't go slowly and at an angle. I really felt bad for the car the first time I looked to see how fucked up the bumper had gotten over the years.

>hate car for long time

>it stays loyal despite my growing neglect for it

>all the loud noises all this time was just the heat shielding being comically warped and banging against the engine while I drove, I'm a fucking moron
>feel bad about my shitbox now, never gave a shit about it before
>washed it good, going to restore the headlights and fogs tomorrow, detailed the entire inside, fixed some minor issues now between fixing some leaks and minor electical fuckery

I'm gonna carry you as far as you're willing to go you glorious hunk a junk. Sorry I'm a fucking moron

A true car enthusiast
Worst I've ever intentionally been to my car is not cleaning the salt off right away. I don't trust the midwest weather patterns enough, I feel like it,s gonna snow again and my hard work will be for nothing. Other than that, I guess too much mud in the cab? I have floor mats tho so I just shake them out every once in awhile.
Went up to 4.5k revs when engine wasn't warm yet
I found a wet glove under the drivers seat a week ago. It has likely been there since like November, frozen solid until now
>update milage on car maintenance app
>'oil change overdue by 4900 miles'
Oh. Sorry car.

Still runs strong
20k miles since the last oil change, add another 6k for since the last filter change
>It's a diesel fight me
It's called a vacuum, ladies.
when i smashed it up and sent it to the junkyard because i was tired of it
who the fuck holds a fork like that?
>tfw you will never pay 100 to restore your car to pristine on demand
I always eat my cereal on my way to work.
>eating cereal for breakfast
>eating cereal for breakfast in your car
Now only if we did this with our girlfriends. Nah fuck them. Im glad i killed you.
I just forget to clean her. It rains every week where I live so I don't see the purpose
