Re: Money Well Spent???

Tell her she is perfect as is and needs nothing, then blow your dough on your car. If she gets them modified, she has low self esteem and will want to show them to everybody

Re: Money Well Spent?

I think you guys misunderstood the poster's statement. By implants, he meant the "teeth implants" :-)

In that case spend money on your car's suspension.

True story no BS. With my 2nd wife of 13 years now and I just ordered 2'' drop spring coils for 67 hope that answers your question.

LOL...sounds almost like me. I got my second wife implants. She went from a full C to double D's....once she was done healing (i.e. once she didn't have to rely on me to help her) she said she wanted a divorce.

This time around...I'm going with the car. Haha.

Re: Money Well Spent?

Well, although I am slightly biased to putting the money into that great looking car. I can only point out to you a few things:

The suspension will usually increase the value of non-numbers matching car.

The suspension can always be removed and sold or saved for the next one if things don't work out as planned.

The car will never get a big head from compliments or create a "vulcher feeding" scene in public when you take it out on the town!
