      This isn't your normal skyline. This motherfcker is the skyline God would drive if he wasn't busy doing God sh*t like making tsunamis and crap. Its set up to go fast, and go fast sideways. Who doesn't like to get sideway?! Terrorists, thats who. Are you a terrorist? No? Then you need this car.

      My friend bought a Continental Mark II that has "only" been underwater for an hour. The oil flowed out and the water flowed in.

      Mind rehosting that to photobucket or something? It's an attachment and I don't think we'll be able to see it.

      I hate to admit it but this actually happened to me but on a smaller scale. A design flaw on the first generation Dodge Journey SUV's allowed A/C condensation (aka water) to accumulate and drip down into the transmission vent tube. We bought a brand new 2009 model, put about 500 miles on it before the tranny puked. Towed to the dealership where they literally drained over 2 cups of water out of the transmission. No joke. Talked to a MOPAR engineer who told me about the A/C condensation "oversight". I was not happy. I guess there's a reason they have a lifetime powertrain warranty....

      Am I the only one that finds most of the posted material disturbing?

      Regardless of your financial situation, if your brake rotors are NON EXISTENT, tires patched with tape, etc... Please stay off the road.

      For many, that's not an option ... try owning and maintaining a car at $1200/month gross wages (minimum wage).

      If I were in that situation it would go down to carpool or public transportation.

      Never would I put other people in danger, or even bring other people that i care about into a car in that shape.

      Again, you say that without having lived it, as have I, but I've known and worked with quite a few people who were pretty much distitute, but had jobs, and their jalopy was the only way to get to/from work.

      You cannot have it both ways. You cannot have people work to keep themselves off welfare and then disparage those same people from skimping on anything they can to make ends meet. As I said before, try living on your own for $1200/month gross ... now understand that many people in this country are raising a FAMILY on that amount of money. People do what they need to do to get by and for one, I'd rather them grind through a set of brake rotors than go without food for a week.

      People in this country are so blind to the blight of so, so, so many.

      That would be great if a lot of people had those options.

      Even here in socialist Canada the public transit is so unreliable that I'm looking at picking up another vehicle while I'm finishing my undergrad.

      What is this 'public transportation' you speak of?

      I love all the brake rotor pics. It makes me feel so much less retarded about my own rotor horror show posted below.

      My 2000 Beetle sat for a year while I was going through Physical Therapy. When I finally got back behind the wheel my rotors just sort of crumbled.

      My post was in jest.... but I also seriously doubt such a product would change the behavior of those drivers. They will drive until their tires pop regardless of what fake looking tire tread products are available.

      My guess is the little guy was sitting on the curb. See the curb rash before the rat? The driver probably rubbed up on the curb and smashed the rat between his wheel and curb, pinching it in between the hub cap and wheel.

      EDIT: nvm, the hub cap has no curb rash, but the wheel does. I'm just as confused as you now.
