Apparently I am cursed when it comes to cars.

First, my beloved Pete dies.

Then I try to look at multiple cars yesterday to see if any could work for purchasing.  They are all complete shit.  Not even a little crummy, like full-on junk.  Worse than Pete, if he didn’t have the tire snapped off.

My father goes out on a surprising limb and decides to let me borrow Cherry for a week or two.  Cherry is his pride and joy, his mid-life crisis car, his summer baby (it’s a convertible).

Del Sol

This is damn close to what Cherry looks like

Cherry is a Honda Del Sol, for those of you who are car people and care.

This morning Cherry wouldn’t start.

I’ve had her for literally, less than 12 hours at this point.

It’s the starter (Dad just bought her a new battery).  I had to get it towed to a service place this morning.  And find a ride to work for the day.

Hopefully it’ll be fixed by this evening.

Apparently my fingers just kill cars.

It’s probably good that you guys don’t know me in real life.  I don’t want to ruin any more cars.

    This same thing happens at our house. If one of the cars break down, they all do. Both of my parents, and my sisters and her husbands. Its uncanny, but the good news, its not just you. Hugs.

      Lol. I can only hope so. Cherry’s tires are all less than a year old and high quality, so hopefully it won’t be me.
      But I hope it doesn’t happen to you either!!

    i laughed at you calling it a mid-life crisis car, because my mother bought a honda del sol a few years back and she got pretty annoyed when i kept referring to its color as “mid-life crisis green.” seriously though have you seen the green del sols? they are…making a statement. XD

    i’m sorry cherry is out of service too. 😦 i don’t think you’re cursed! though i admit you’re having some bad car luck lately. i wouldn’t be concerned if you knew me in real life because i’ve managed to turn my car weird already, it locks and unlocks itself constantly. so please. take my car. maybe our DID super powers are too much for machines to handle. 😛

      Haha. My dad actually jokes about it being his mid-life crisis car. The green Del Sols are a very interesting color. I think the red is a little more “natural car color” 😉

      Cherry is officially fixed now. Crossing my fingers that she remains that way.
      Perhaps it is a DID thing. I actually tend to have a lot of mechanic things break around me. It’s weird. 😉

        a long long time ago before i had any idea i had any mental illnesses and thought i was normal and healthy like everyone else, my then husband had a friend (still does actually) who had been diagnosed MPD (told you it was a long long time ago) and it was verifiable that depending who was coconscious or fronting all kinds of electronic items would fail. he was at our place one night, and the radio quit working–just static no matter what station we tried. it was fine before he arrived. then we tried tv, but the same thing happened. interestingly, my then husband had brought me a rose that night, that had just started to open. within an hour of our friend being there, the rose shriveled up and died. true story.

        Heh. Yeah, I have a lot of mechanic things go wrong for me.

        I actually have a way with most plants though. Flowers tend to stay alive longer than usual around me.
        But I am a born/lineage Pagan, so maybe that overrides it 😉
