Liking your car is a tough thing!

Driving around the parking lot looking for a spot is not really so I am close to work, it is more to better judge the height and color of today’s new door ding. See, where I work the parking spots are a little tight and my co-workers for the most part have total disregard for their and your car.

In the olden days (i.e. – before I went to Korea for a year) I drove a 1994 Nissan Pickup truck that has over the years become a fairly evil little beast. I reworked the body, taking out very near 1,000 little dings and dents. After I straightened the body I painted it hotrod flat black and gave it a bit of a evil look. So for the most part people stayed away from it. Upon my return the age was starting to show so I parked the truck and prepped it for a frame off restoration. I need to beef up the engine and give it all new parts and hopefully make it evil enough to make little children cry and mothers clutch their babies tight to them as I drive by.

In the mean time I made the mistake of buying a car that I have always loved. I bought a 2005 Honda S2000. It is a little older but only has 32,000 on it and looks new as the day it rolled off the assembly line. Here in lies the problem, I CARE ABOUT IT! Every week I take a walk around my new beautiful car and assess what my co-workers have done to it. And every week I find more and more of those dings and dents. Long story short is I need to hurry up and finish the truck restoration so I can get the nice new car away from the daily damage… or maybe I just have to make the Honda flat black and evil so more people will fear that car? I don’t think that will work, that truck truly does have some serious attitude and will be even worse when I done making it a fire breathing dragon. I guess I will just have to make peace with the fact that dents will happen. It is hard though, I care too much. So please gentle reader… if you are out and about and see a light blue Suzuka blue S2000 can you cut me a break and not put a dent in it? Please? just once?
