Does this piss you off or is it just me??

posted in: woodbutchers garage, news on January 23, 2010 at 05:10 PM

It seems when ever I drive and park one of my Hot Rods at the back of a parking lot with no other cars around some a hole in a total pos has to park right next to me. This always happens with my painted cars so I say the hell with paint now build them up to paint stage and sell and let someone else finish them.
I hate to let people change the way I do things but I can still build a cool car and not have to worry about it and they seem to get a better response. And people don’t go out of their way to park next too it. Just a little rant thanks guys and gals.

I don’t believe in Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, but there’s Zillions that do and will go out of thier way too prove they’ve got MONKEY BRAINS

Hey I do it with my daily driver! Just this afternoon went to get a perscription filled parked at least a 1/4 mile away and no other car within in 30 spaces in either direction. Come out and a fenderless Hyndae is sitting 3inches off the right door of my truck! I’m with ya WHY?! I guess some people just follow no matter what!

Hey, remember Murphy’s Law! If it can happen, it will happen, to me anyway. I live by this law and try to be prepared for everything. People think I’m nuts, but I almost never have to borrow tools, ask for a jump, or walk to the gas station. Makes sense huh?

My 63 Chevy Impala wagon looks much better in the pictures on the Hub. All I did to it was paint the flames on it. I wanted to drive right away and not have it torn down forever so, the paint isn’t in great shape, its ok but, I don’t have to worry about some MONKEY BRAIN parking next to it and chipping it!

Also, I used to have a Very nice 74 Nova daily driver. In traffic, people crowded me, tailgated me but, then I got a beat up lime green Monte Carlo and NOBODY came close to me!

I feel your pain! I solved the problem (for the most part) by always parking centered over a yellow line. I’ve annoyed more than a few folks, but….there is something about having to live with a door ding or dent for someone’s two seconds of carelessness that really gets me pi**ed!

All the best,

Bob

That’s the same as when you go to a movie and the theater is empty…someone will always sit in front of you.

Y’all are startin to sound like a bunch of old guys.
It is to the point that anything you care deeply about, act like it, and don’t leave it to chance, and don’t leave it alone.
Period.

I ditto JJsmooth…yeah door dings suck, but if you drive it and leave it in a parking lot, that’s what happens…..live with it, or quit drivin’em….most of the world is made up of selfish, unthinking bastards, who care about no one and nothing except themselves…and these people ding and dent our prized possesions…there’s also the whiners who cry about everything and blame everyone else for thei woes…and finally (and might I add rarely) you have the people who accept personal responsibilty for their actions and goes to great lengths to see these things don’t happen and realizes that when they do, there is usually nothing thay can do about it. This third group are usually the happiest.
Always remember these two things:
1) No jerk will ding your car if it’s at home in the garage.
2) If you leave the car in garage all the time, it’s time to sell it. Cars are meant to be driven.

I seem to have struck a cord with some of you. This was simply a question turned into a little rant about why people do this to a nicely painted car? The fact of the matter is when I take the 32 to a show it gets more hands put on it then Paris Hilton at a night club.
My kids like to play in all of our hotrods and they really make great play pins on really hot days as long as they don’t park their big wheels next to them I’m cool

Well its not just you, it always happens to me when I park 1000 ft away and some s-head has to park in the next stall with a pos mini van and some fat chick gets out and whips the door open almost hitting my car and there isnt any other cars aroung for 500ft.I guess she needs the exersize,so I just take my truck to go shopping instead.Like Wild Bill says,live with it or quit drivin em.So I would rather have my cars sit in my garage and just look at them and not drive them at all rather than have somebody damage them.Their investment pieces not just cars.
