oh yea we drove that thing with no radio or any sort of air conditioning for a couple years. all it had to do was get us and our boards to the beach and back. we just let the rain pour into it without the top and the leaky and eventually non-existent floor boards solved the problem of it filling up with water. also both seat bottoms sagged a lot from the springs and metal crapping out. it was the kind of car you never took over 60mph. we thought it was fun to drive, but we never drove it more than 15 miles for the last 3 years.

don't waste your time or time will waste you

The point at which it is more reasonable to replace a vehicle than to repair/modify it is when the wife is standing there looking at you, rolling pin in hand, saying: "Get that piece of **** outta my driveway NOW!"

"We are forces of chaos and anarchy. Everything they say we are we are, and we are very proud of ourselves!" -- Jefferson Airplane
