I went down there a couple of weeks ago and bought this car that this guy was hyping up.
Had a full 'rase' motor in it, comes to find out, it ran on water. Sweet setup, and CHEAP to run. The guy spent a lot of time with me 'splainin' about how the more steam it makes, the faster it goes, etc. This guy knew his stuff!
I got the darn thing home, and by God, he must have been running that thing through the field over and over. There were all kinds of corn cobs and little varmints stuck in the all the crevices in the bottom.

Hope you get that dealer, anyhow? How did you miss all those things that were wrong with it, or did they switch the parts after you looked at it?
Sorry to hear about that Nick. Tell us all about it, just leave his name out. I'm sure we have some folks down that way who'll know who you're talking about. Maybe he can be "persuaded" into making things right?
How'd ya get into this-did you buy it sight unseen?
