Yeah I saw something quirky yesterday.
first a little background story.The original owner of my corvette was a drug addict and was put in jail for 10 years while the car sat during that time. He got out last november and drove the car again, until he was arrested again for several life time sentences, then the car went througth another guy, then finally to me. Well yesterday, I was replacing the 12yr old Cd player in it, and found out what that guy did. Going by his wiring, he really was on drugs when he hooked it up!!! He bought a good system in it, it was just to bad he didn't know how to hook it up. I got a couple entries in my journal, but seriously, some people shouldn't touch cars!!

I don't know what is quirkier...Cruise driving a ride with 157000+ miles, the 911 on the trip meter, or him actually owning a car with a 140mph speedometer

For as while, once in a while when I stepped on the clutch of my Capri, the windshield wipers would make one sweep.

Ever watched you odometer turn 66666? Kinda wierd feeling.

I go to the grocery store to drop off pop cans (10 cents each here in mi), and when I come out there's a cart in the door, and a nice dent with it too.

My Plymouth the radio always turns on by itself playing oldies, it drives by itself without a driver and kills people, and people pound the crap out of it with crowbars and the next day there isn't a scratch on it. Ohh wait, sorry, that was the movie Christine.

Back in the early 70's we had a Triumph TR6 that would honk the horn every time you made a right hand turn.
