Cardomain.com
I like it but its really just another Myspace ( even though car domain came first )

I got into the whole Cardomain thing because I thought everybody wanted to see a sick little S14 Nissan and wanted to be the next DK ( not really ). You add "buddies" that you dont even know and dont ever talk to and you add them because they said " Sup DoOd, Nice Cavalier! come check mine out.!.l. tyTEASSSHEEEITTT!!!! [email protected][email protected]#"

You may think about running your car for the weekly contest to see who has the dopest whip but then you look at the past winners and see the demographic and the formula you need to win is an Escalator with Lambo doors and chromie valve caps.

Dub-Ex's and Dr. Evo
Is anyone else sick of how played out WRX's are? sure everyone still wants them , but almost everyones snot-nosed cousins friends brother has one. Great car, just played out really bad. The EVO should be more popular, it has a better AWD system and in my opinion better looks, but then again, who wants a Mitsubishi other than your DSM freaks that love to turn a fast 1/4 mile and love fixing their broken cars and replacing faulty valvetrain. I cant believe Mitsu is still in existance. What really helped them AND killed them was their "no payments for a year" deal that became the fruit of a million Repo's and bankrupcy's for customers. oh yeah. The WRX seems to be the most beat on car , I cant imagine what the market will be like for used WRX's. It will be hard to find a pampered one, if not impossible.


Toyota's and Brand Loyalty
I see a lot of posts on TN about Toyota reliability and recalls. Im happy that Toyota makes a fine product, but its funny and embarassing to see that some people are so Pro-Toyota that its a religion to the point where if anyone says something partially negative about Toyota, it affects their self esteem and they fight about it until they feel they have supported Toyota and won. Im not a fan of brand loyalty or band loyalty anymore. back then it used to be Metallica and VW's if it was a product of either, I automatically liked it and it was the best ever. Then one dayI took a fat shnyke and now I just like something if its good. I like toyota trucks because they are good. I like double whoppers with cheese because they are good. I like king kongs in my trunk because they are good. I like the Pontiac Solstice even though Im not too warm towards domestics, I even kinda like the Ford Fusion, if some thing is good, I like it because its good.
#)&*$ brand loyalty

Last night, last rant.
The GF lives about 50 minutes away ( we see eachother everyday so you can imagine how familiar I am with the local Chevron) I get off work around 7-8pm and head straight there. We went shopping for rings (thats right folks) and on the way back to her Apt. noticed that I was dang near empty on the fuel guage. I left her apt. sometime after midnight and went to fill the peecup with summa-dat good #&[email protected] get out and put the key in the fuel door and it doesnt budge. AHHHHH PIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSS! I had 40 miles to drive with no gas and as I am at the station, the fuel door wont open, the lock cylinder wouldnt budge and I didnt want to fuselage<--- that meant mess up , my ignition key. I had a poorly cut dealer spare that didnt work right , in the glovebox, I grab the poorly cut spare and tried it, nope. well, looks like im in for a good night. I finally got it open with some coaxing. My real question through this whole thread is Has anyone else had problems with their fuel door and how can you get it open without the key>?!?! :ugh3:

screwdriver and a hammer?
you could always replace the locking door with a non locker and get a combination cap.
or you could hit it with a fents post and smash it on the crub before you throw it into the burshes.
just a thought.

my 92, you had to wiggle the key and beg to get the gas door open.

Mine loves to be a pain in the ass sometimes. One day it'll open on the first left hand twist, and others the key won't even move left or right. Really pisses me off to be standin at my local Casey's gas station, jigglin my damn keys like a moron.

I do love how these trucks are about as cheap as they come, and they STILL have locking gas doors. No suga in my tank for me! :)

O, and King Kongs...

...I prefer Throw It Up - Lil John on my system. It's loooooouuuudddddd.

Well I have two beds. The door on the one that is currently on the truck has a hole with no lock and is a different color than the bed if that tells you anything. I couldn't get it open one day so SMASHY SMASHY!

The one on my new bed (in the garage) barely opens with the key I stole out of the ignition of the truck I got it off of. I'm gonna have to figure something out before I paint it cuz I aint gonna wanna force that one open with new paint on it.

What is this non-locker of which you speak? I haven''t seen one that doesn't lock. I have seen a lot in the salvage yards with out doors though which tells me this is pretty common.

I figured I was going to have to make my own latch to replace the lock.

Maxpower-

Just get a shaved-door handle popper and rig that up.

Shave the lock hole flat, and rig the actuator behind the bed side behind the gas tank compartment, and have a rod through a little hole that pops the thing open or something. Then hide the switch on the dash somewhere or something.

It'd be real trick. Maybe you can even lambo style the door!

Mine came with the fuel door in the "unlocked" position. I think the previous owner had the same problem as you and when he got it open he just bent the lock mechanism over so it doesn't latch any more. So it flaps in the breeze a little, but I'll never have to worry about not being able to fill up cause its rusted or frozen shut.

You should get some graphite to into the lock mechanism and jingle the key around too. it might free up again

i had mine freeze shut on me once. i walked away from the pump, whipped out a lighter, heated the crap out of my spare key, jammed it in there, and voila! it opened! :)

i put a tiny bit of wd40 in there to prevent water from staying on the locking mechanism. i've never had a problem with it since. :)

I hate the wheel lock on our trucks. They're nice at times, but when you have the wheel full lock to right or left, and you get out...your knee/thigh drags the wheel and then locks it in the position. It's a BITCH to break the wheel lock when your wheels are full turned to left or right.

I sprayed WD40 in all my locks, and carry an extra key to fit my truck, however it's a little different in cut then the one I actually use. I need to put a spare in my wallet. I've almost locked the keys in couple times.

GC8 wrx's arent all that common anymore let alone 2dr ones. I'd enjoy to see those played out a bit more than the new deals are.

im not a big fan of the "tuner" car though. EVO's and WRX's could be classed outside of "tuner" but i still consider them to be in that category. i prefer muscle. a nice '70 dodge charger with a 440 magnum in it would be nice! but if i wanted something newer, i would probably go for an M5. nice car, faster than most, STOCK!
