You are rich!
A few of us are trying to volunteer for Sandy relief this Saturday. We aren't fully sure on the details of what work we'd be doing, but we can let you know by Friday. Let me, Kenny or Sid know, and we'll give you the rest of the details.
Some rollin' roaster pics from last night:
I knew I had something to do yesterday all day and I was thinking and thinking but I forgot. It was trying to get to the meet lol. I need something to keep my head up and a bunch of good people that drive and like VW's and Audi's is my remedy. I lost my basement apartment with everything in it, my candy white 2012 Passat to Sandy and my E350 4Matic. I live in Rockaway and my parents live in Breezy Point, I stayed at my parents house because my apartment in Rockaway flooded 2 feet when Irene rolled on through. So for Sandy I split and went to my parents house who only got three inches from Irene. Good move on my part because I would have died. My apartment in Rockaway has 7 feet of salt water and heating oil inside. From my parents house I watched houses around me fall and burn. Lucky for us, only the basement flooded and the only thing that was valuable to my family that was down there was pictures of us back in the late 80's when we were little up to when digital cameras came out.
Back to motorized machines, lost Penelope (the white Passat), my E350 4Matic which floated about 50 feet or so and the Passat did not move an inch, my 2007 Honda F-X12 turbocharged jet ski which broke loose from the trailer and house and floated away, and a kayak (no motor).
But now for the pictures....
HID's still worked which surprised me. This was after the car went on fire because I couldn't get them on after they put the fire out.
Finally got to see what my car looks like lowered and it looks bad ass but it needs 18" Spokanes.
I guess debris flew into or some ******* parked on my bumper because that back bumper was not f*cked up like that before the storm.
That is a fire extinguisher that is floating on the floor. I am guessing the car caught an electrical fire since the keys were stuck in it and it went on fire while I was not their. My best guess is that a 17 year old jerk off tried to start it and drive it around Breezy but he must have saw fire come from under the hood. But whatever the case was, someone was around to put it out. The next day when I went to Breezy the hood was open when I got there and the engine bay was white and nobody around to tell me what happened.
The new one. A 2013 with sunroof and navigation in an awesome navy blue metallic and black interior.
Nice sh*tty picture in front of the company I got it from.
Looking out the window in the morning from my temp home in Mill Basin.
Going upstate today and just had the car washed so hopefully I can take a some more pictures up there because the pictures of the new one suck.
Thanks Earl! I salvaged some things. I got my E-ZPass lol, the things from VW that velcro in the trunk so sh*t doesn't fly around so now I have one mega one in my trunk, my bumper bully, the owners manual (whoever needs a 2012 Passat owners manual let me know), and a few other things I had laying around that were not car related. My $90 book for school that I left on the floor like a sh*t head got ruined.
So now I need to buy a new $90 math book, I fell behind in school because I had to take days off meet with FEMA then go to help my sick in the head family. I have an sick mother, an older sister who works for Louie Vuttion corporate makes $60-$70 a year and thinks she is f*cking Angelina Jolie or some sh*t, and my father/boss who I think is bi-polar and yells at me all day long, and my normal 96 year old grandmother God Bless her who looks 65 who cooks, cleans, and has weight. Every woman I have seen that age is skin and bones, or too obese. Her weight is normal for her age. I am just really happy she is ok too and did not stroke out or anything. No one, mother nature or some random person f*cks with my grandma lmao.
Everything else was f*cked up. No mechanical or electrical parts were salvageable. The water at one point got over the center console because when I opened it, my iPod (got an iPhone so did not really bother me), a Sharpie, my work keys were all hanging out taking a bath together. I did want to go back and get the HID's I just bought a few months ago since they still worked but when I got back there to do it the insurance company had already taken the car. I wanted to come on here and ask you guys if you needed any interior parts, sh*t that cant get messed up by salt water.
I'll see you there Wednesday if you guys go there this week. I got post-its all over my f*cking room reminding me because I am very forgetful lol.
thats crazy man, what about the steering wheel? and the rear view mirror? or the top light cluster? or the headrests?
After realizing how much i coulda salvaged from my totaled scion, i try to take errthang lol
