Default An apology

Pretty close to 3 years ago I was in a panic. I was homeless, pretty much living out of my car. I had the repo guys after me and my car was having issues. So in a desperate attempt to make some kind of money to maybe at least get in to a place of my own I was thinking of parting out my car. I have since then been able to find some work and have been getting my feet back on the ground. Having been in such a place in my life I hadn't logged back on to this site until recently and noticed I had 63 messages about parts on my car.
I just want to apologize to everyone that had sent me messages about parts and to everyone else for panicking on the boards. I am happy to say that I am still a proud (partial until I pay off the collection agency :/) owner of an '05 wr blue wrx . Ok thank you for your time and hope to see you on the roads

Lol it wasn't much fun by any means... I'm just glad I made it through it and still with my car... Lol it was actually the 2nd time I've been homeless with my car, first time it's because the navy thought I could make it from virginia to alaska on $700... I ran out of money in nebraska lol.
That wasn't too bad though plenty of good people and day labor jobs there it also helped that the subject family seemed to be in full force there... Many thanks to the person that stopped by burger king just because he saw my car, I told him my story and he filled my tank .
Since then I've filled 3 other subject tanks... Its more than just a car. Its a family. 1 that I'm proud to be part of I'm so happy to be back

Yes. For about a year or so. I couch hopped a bit with friends but I just couldn't seem to find any kind of work that was enough to stay fed, keep my tank filled, and pay my bills. Hated the fact that I was kind of living off of them so there were quite a few nights that I just stayed in my car.

Most people do not believe that these things could happen here in the USA but they do. Glad to hear you are doing better. Wish our Government would put more into taking care at home here. Godspeed.

You know, he might not have become homeless if he hadn't bought the WRX and spent a bunch of money on aftermarket parts.

Not sure how it's the Governments fault that he didn't save his money for an emergency.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Props on getting things turned around. A lot of people aren't so lucky.

Not everyone saves for emergencies ^
You can never have enough emergency money and inflation can kill all your savings. It's good for everyone to spend money.

Yah, but blaming it on the Government instead of accepting that you dug yourself into a hole and moving on from it is silly. Not that the OP did that, just responding to the guy that posted.

Personally I'd do the same (especially once I get my '13 STi ).

First off everything is still stock. Secondly you're correct when I bought the car I really shouldn't have. The military didn't even REMOTELY pay me enough to afford it. Hence the first time i was homeless. After that, however, I had a pretty good job making plenty of money a month to cover my bills, I did have enough saved up for about 4 months of living... After that I didn't have enough to pay all my bills since I was putting more money in to trying to clear my debts so I could buy a house instead of really saving it all.
The economy is a little to blame, but I guess you're right. If you can't just buy a car outright then you shouldn't own that car.

OP, it's refreshing to read a thread like this that shows people what taking responsibility for life is all about. There are way too many idiot kids on here driving brand new cars who have no sense of what it's like to actually fend for themselves.

Glad you made it through some tough times. Maybe once you're on your feet you can pay it forward to some who were also in your shoes.
Most Americans are only a few missing paychecks from your same situation.
It's great to say "prepare for the worst" but people like to feel that they're secure in their jobs and don't think about this,... until the point that they're not and the rug gets ripped out from under them.
With this economy, you never know how long even a good job will last.

Sounds like you had some incredible people help you out. I've payed it forward a few times, filling up people's gas tanks for doing other little things. If everyone did just the smallest thing to help, this world would be a far better place. Good to hear you're getting grounded.
