Petrol again

As I drive a shit old car, I am getting increasingly worried everytime I fill up. The price upsets me but that is not the major problem. The real issue is I feel that it is dangerous to fill it up completely as I therefore increasing the cars value by almost 10% ($60). Knowing my luck, if my car is nicked it will right after I have filled up.

    Worse still, it could be nicked with you asleep in the back seat. This would not only increase the cars value (and weight) by a further 10% but would make your retreavial very difficult due to our "No negotiation with Terrorists" policy.

    Mr Fairman. Are you still driving around in discarded 25 year old ex Sydney cars, has the economy of Victoria slumped to an all time low.
    The path to success is going out to meet or look for that big ship not waiting for it to come in.
    Borrow if you must, to get that flash Auto, to impress your boss or clients, dont be timid, let them know with a smile you are on the path to success.
    If at first you dont succeed; go bankrupt change your image and try again.

    I don't see my car as a status item. I would barely need the car if I was not working nights. This is largely due to the wonderful tram system that Melbourne has.
    Plus the car has never been discarded. It has been in the family for 25 years.
    I don't see why a flash car matters.

    P ASH. No person in his right mind would even consider stealing a 1979 4cyl VC clapped out- rust bucket Old un Condommore, well they may in Vic or Tassie, but certainly not in sophisticated NSW, Where drivers have been warned that it would jeopardise public safety and effectively warrant a substantial period of incarceration or a three month vacation in Melbourne, or two in er er.

    Look it is a 1980 VC 6Cly to start with. It is very well cared for. Lay off the car.

    Very sensitive about your car aren't you, What sex is it, sounds as if it may be getting more than just a regular lube job. Paint it pink; adorn it with frilly curtains.give it a name- hey!- Vicky sounds nice, paint eye lashes above the curve of front wiper arcs. Oh dear, one big draw back worse than an elephants F/Skin, due to its age it will still look like your grandmother.
    Why not 'Just give in ' and upgrade to a horse and cart.
