Re: The "let others judge you by the car you drive" thread
Volvo S40 T4, 1998. Metallic red, somewhat tuned.
 Quoting: FinGuy 38032928


Somewhat tuned? What did ya do to it?
 Quoting: Maguyver


Handmade engine hood with custom air ventilation and black effect paint.. wheels painted black and red according to the car color. Handmade spoilers and body kit/hem wideners.. special led light integrated into brake and reverse lights in the lower spoiler.. some inside tuning, mostly added some red highlights around the interior.

Engine and suspension are very lightly tuned, +50hp and some crap to make it behave better when driving fast. Detailed enough?

Yup, I thought so and I am sorry to hear about what you have gone through.

As for your neighbors, you have the right mindset. Your choice in vehicles is logical and I wouldn't ever worry if I were you what anyone thinks. You're a good guy.

Might give it a try, especially as I am having some severe health problems and turmeric was recommended for me a while ago to help my body fight the side effects of the pain killers and other crap I need.

What comes to reading abilities in general, my rare friends hate it because "you cannot be lied to about anything ever" and my family is very xtian and religious, they cannot tolerate anything of that sort.

But I often use it to pick up very lonely or sad people from the crowd (at work and school) and cheer them up with some small talk, I would say it is 98% accurate.
