Bottom line is ......... it will roast 1st gear and catch a tiny bit of 2nd lol
Its perfect , now my kids can destroy this thing and I can reclaim my tahoe
What about the smell of stale formula that has seeped into the seat cushions?

Actually the worst and dirtiest cars I have ever worked on, bar none, are smoker's cars where the ashtray has overflowed and spilled into the footwells, under the seats and everywhere else. There have been a couple that I have absolutely refused to get into or allow in my stall because they are so bad. I will take a car where babies have shat and puked all over the inside before I'll take one of those smoker cars. At least the babies can't help themselves.

That said, at least the dirty bastards aren't flicking their damn butts out the window. (at least not apparently).

I'll take stale formula over soured milk any day. Especially after having to wash it out of my daughter's hair after she got sick last night and fell back asleep in the mess. That's THE most intolerable smell, bar none.

There were days when I was detailing trucks that I'd come home and my Mom would be like, did you start smoking? Like six packs a day?

The ex makes her coffee about half coffee half cream, I am not exagerating the amount of cream. She spilled about half a cup of that combo down the shifter opening in her firebird. It got into the carpeting and underlayment that was tucked under the console. Never did get the sour milk smell out of that car.

Many times I have had to disassemble a center console to clean out the coffee drink mess from down in there. Never understood why the manufacturers put those shallow depressions made to set your cup while you are parked (as opposed to a cup holder meant to hold the cup while driving) right next to the shifter.

FAIL!!!!

It kinda worked out it made her get rid of that car. It was her summer toy and every spring there was a 2 week process of tracking down electrical problems that sprang up over the winter. One year it was the power windows the next it was turn signals etc. etc.

Well its got a rear caliper locking up and it feels like its got 44 in super swampers on it , been sitting for over a year . Viking if you hate the smokers car then you know the '' FILM '' that they have ? Yea thats what this has ontop of all the other stuff .
I can take gear oil , antifreeze , brake fluid and diesel all down my arm but I had to put the seat belt on due to some cops while ago and thought I was going to die .
We have one here 1 body style older but the seats will interchange , so in other words all the cloth seats are coming out and I have a full leather seat going in .

But all of you are wrong . the worst is one who smokes cigars in their car and or a car someone has died in . Yes death has a smell , even if they just had a heart attack and no blood or other leakage I can tell if someone died in a car , its not really a putrid smell but its unique and it will never go away . Now the ones with brains in the back seat are different if we end up with one that the insurance does not get we usually fill it full of dirt and or burn it .
Last bad fatal we towed in I went to slam the door and '' some stuff '' fell out and then I added to it . I use to be able to handle seeing brains guts fat , feet and arms but I cant do it no more I will gag or puke everytime .

The worst we ever had was a lady missing for a few months before being found in the trunk of her car in the woods
in the summer
I wont go into details but just picture all that stuff with no where to flow.... i mean go with um lots and lots and lots of um the little white things

I like the way you think.

If this is the first time you've read this, up until now you think I typed this out in response to this thread. Well, the jokes on you. This is my signature line. Know it, embrace it, love it.

The brake warning light was off the whole way home, so it musta been something frozen up that thawed out in the underground garage I parked in today. Went to exit the garage and was expecting to pay $8 for the day like the last time I parked there, when the amount popped up on the machine it was $12!! WTF! HIGHWAY ROBBERY!
