My 16 year old daughter is of driving age. Bought her a 2000 S-10 Extreme this past February. I've been tinkering with it so it'll be ready and (safe) when she actually goes for her permit. Took it around the block yesterday and there was strange noise coming from it. It sounded (and smelled) like brake. She says to me. "It's not going to be like your Fiero, always working on it, is it?". OUCH!! Unfortunately, they, (wife and daughters), confuse needed fixing work with maintenance work.

My brain: hummm - 2000 isn't such an old vehic-...OMG, 2000 is 15 freaking years ago.
I think I need a drink.

my family gives me the same grief, they just dont understand. It doesnt help that i dont exactly buy the best examples of fieros, i consider myself a saver not a collector.
also if it makes you feel better, i still think my 90 tbird is 10 years old, the math just hasnt clicked.

Same **** from my wife. She assumes because it's a 1987 that it "will always be broken" and will "break down in the middle of an intersection" or some other random BS. If I spend a few hours doing preventative maintenance work (like replacing both front hubs on my tahoe because one of the bearings was starting to make noise) she thinks the cars are broken and we're stranded or some other similar drama. She wouldn't know a well maintained vehicle if it ran her over.

Hopefully they don't think just because something is newer, it won't have any problems either.

I have a sister in law that was getting newer vehicles as she could afford them. Got into a 2008 Chevy Suburban a couple of years ago and low and behold the check engine light came on one day for the evap system. She threw a fit!. Actually said "How new of a G** D***** vehicle do I have to get before the G** D***** check engine light won't come on?!" In the heat of her rant, I calmly said, "The check engine light has never come on in my 78 Camaro..." That didn't help at all!
