Stupid But True: Mustang Running 24/7
I didn't believe this until I went down to see this myself; my wife went to a former co-wokers apartment to find out about a job listing. It was a hot day & the co-worker had her windows open. The entire 2 hours my wife was there, she heard a car idling in the parking lot of the apartment complex. It was a '99-'03 Mustang V6 that belonged to a guy that lived downstairs from this woman. By the looks of the car, I wouldn't doubt this guy drives with a blindfold on, because it looks like it's hit everything but the F'n lottery! He's also got a bunch of AutoMeter, Edelbrock, & Summit stickers all over the back window(looks more like a 7yr old's sticker collage), & some PepBoys or AutoZone hubcap.....
. Anyway, there's something wrong with either his alternator or battery. If he shuts the car off, it won't start & he has to get it jumped...........so he leaves it running..........day & night! No word of a lie!!!! I DID NOT believe this when I heard it, so my wife took me down to where the Mustang was. When I 1st had the pleasure of looking @ this POS, there was so much heat coming from the bottom of the car, I thought it was going to synge my leg hairs. To see if this guy's really stupid enough to leave his car running because he's gotta be the cheapest SOB that ever graced the earth, I went back to check it out again about 7hrs. later, & sure as crap, it was in the same spot just idling away.....now this guy doesn't have enough money to buy an alt or a batt, but he sure seems to have enough money for gas. I guess it takes all types to make the world go round, huh?
