Rot

One of the fastest ways to destroy a car is to let it sit.

Here's an example of what happens.


Joy.  $150 a tire for the 275-40-ZR17's the Biscayne wears.  At christmas time.  Same month as my birthday, so all the plates are due.

Joy to the world!

  1. Nothing mechanical likes to sit. It could be worse. My Pirelli P-zeros were 250 each. Fortunately I have found a cheaper source since then.

  2. Yeah, the Vette wears expensive rubber too. Much cheaper since I decided that a pump and some tire plugs were a good enough substitute for run-flats.
