Default Why commando bumpers were installed...

I hope this isn't a repost, (searched for it and found nothing.)

Anyways got a good laugh out of this one...

This is why I always leave my bumper trim black, and never paint it body color.

All other 240's quake in fear at the '81-'82 242GLT, they go weak at the knees & collapse due to an uncontrollable adulation that's near idolatry.

Lol, I've pushed a few cars with the 944... since people around my apartment seem completely incapable of parking properly- gotta make your own parking spaces sometimes lol.

I made a thread with a picture of me parked in a tight spot, and said that I just barely nudged one of the cars once, and people were jumping through the internetz trying to kill me for the sheer disrespect I have for other peoples' property. Seems the tbricks concensus has changed, and this is far far worse than the nudge I did.

that was just obnoxious. if the guy really wanted to park by braile he wouldn't have bounced off the cars and instead actually pushed, backed up, pushed, and then gotten out.

pfft, ibtl.
