Economic Indicator - Dents In Cars

Recommended Posts

Noticed this recently.

Many more dents on cars being left with no attempt at fixing.

A year ago most would go out and get it fixed ASAP. Put it on the overdraft, extend the loan, dip into the MEW. Whatever. Can't have your car looking dodgy can you....

These days people cannot, or do not want to, pay to fix that dent. Their cash/debt is going elsewhere. If they have any cash/debt.

Have a look tomorrow.

The wife backed into my little pride and joy a couple of years ago and promised to make it all better. Still waiting.

Is that sexual innuendo?

You should probably see a Doctor about that - not a mechanic.

Peyronies Disease

You could maybe invest in one of these for next time:

Dents in cars is a sign of a recession, :blink::blink: you need a holiday dude or a strong drink or maybe both!!!.

Well I am drinking Cobra at the mo !!

Anyway why is it a strange concept ? Keep an eye out tomorrow. You will notice it too. I just notice these strange things for some reason.

Fixing a dent is a luxury cost. It is not a necessity.

So in tough times more dents will be present on our roads. The logic is very simple. ;)

I put my faith in the car scratch index- the degree of reluctance owners of high profile ***** extensions show when parking in run down areas- if they circle a lot looking for a safe spot it's game on.

Edit: apparantly the anatomicly correct name for the male organ of reproduction is considered a swear word- yet it's possible to type 'gorden brown' with no penalty for obscenity- how very odd. :lol:

Oh I just had to click on that link didn't I ? Blimey, I should SO know better by now. :lol:

This may save the blushes, and also aid men suffering from Sibley's Bent Hampton Syndrome, while providing a lively conversation piece.

Victorian head gardeners were proud of growing long, straight cucumbers in their hothouses. Accordingly, a cucumber glass was slipped over the growing cucumber to stop any tendency to curvature.

Worn permanently, inside fashionably baggy trousers, it should soon cure the problem.

When this was discussed on the main houseprice crash :blink: forum before it was pointed out that those who had big 70's bushes probably still do have them.But now the whiff of stale urine is masked by tenalady ultra.

My car's been dented for 12 years... Mind you, I don't have a mortgage, so I guess I could never "afford" to get it fixed. :)
