Like this?

One thing I have noticed is that the wheels on the older cars are not as widely spaced, so it's easier to put wheel skirts on.

around me theres all these new neighborhoods that piss me off. they are all build in cornfields, and all the dam houses all have a light pole in the front yard, all either beige, tan , or cream. and all have some kind of brickface on the front. damn houses like that all look alike...and all the people seem to be stuck up and uppety and if your driving slowly they whip around you because they need to get to thier house in 3 seconds...
Sounds pretty ugly. My friend called this "just add water" housing. In California, it's literally true.

i feel sorry for this one guy near me who has lived in what used to be the country for years and years. then last year they built up a neighborhood around his nouse and all the people made him clean up his yard (he had a few old old cars around) id be pissed if that happened to me...
Ooof, so much for home and castles and all that.

Some people's garages are clean enough to park their cars in them? Wow...

Before I got married, I had room for my truck, my car, and my motorcycle. Now it's all I can do to stumble around the MR2 EV conversion in progress with virtually none of the clutter having anything to do with the car!

I'm not to upset, I'll be able to move right into a nice cheap suburban home, in an abandoned neighbor hood one day. Perhaps around the time I'm graduating from college.
