need help/money

ok guys and girls. i am very desperate at this point. i am going to do the unthinkable and ask if anyone out there would have it in their heart to help me with the financial matter of buying a motor for my lude. any amount helps. i have been saving but its not workin i have been workin my but off and still the goal of a motor is so far off. like some of you know i am in college and i am working a part time job. it isnt easy. i blew the motor a little while ago and have been without a car sence. i miss my baby.

so if there is anyone that would be willing to chip in and help me out it would be very appreciated. if you would like to be descreat please pm me.

like i said im desperate and this just might seem stupid to some but i love my lude and would do anything to drive it again.

i should let you know that i am trying to buy either an h23 or h22. thank you for your cincuderation.

Re: need help/money

honestly not to sound like a dick..

a cry for money on a public forum isnt going to do much will. also, telling us what we should support you for (the h22/h23) no can do..if we were going to just attempt to make your car run..you would have to accept an f22..or something that will start you moving.

2ndly..if you blew your motor..either 1 you weren't completing with maintenece or 2 you were messing around and racing and over reved or w.e.


and if worse comes to worst, you REALLY need a car..b/c cars are considered luxury..you dont need one. Thats what MTA is for..or w.e type of public transportation you have. You will have to part out your car..and junk it..and whatever money you make out of it..buy a 500 car that runs..or w.e.

Like i stated..a cry for money on a public forum isn't going to get you no where.

Well, my first post is going to be rude. I can't help it.

You need to suck it up and buy a beater. I'm sure everyone on this board had one at one point or another unless mommy and daddy paid for them a new car. No one is gonna help you buy an h22.

You say you're in college? Not majoring in english are you? I don't always spell everything correctly or use correct grammar but damn! Wow. Just wow.

Re: need help/money

Yeah wow. I wish I could help but everyone on here I can assue you has been in financial need or desparation. Your going to college! That alone is better than a lot of people get. If you were like "hey guys I need to get the car rollin. Anyone have a motor that RUNS I have $XXX. Or I need some help with fixing head gasket or whatever applies" To ask for what a lot of folks concider the pinnacle of 4 cyl Honda engines as a hand out. Not feelin any sympathy. Sorry. I don't care where you are there is a sub 500 dollar car that runs. Pick it up! I bought an 02 Tacoma Limited before I move out. Parents left town. Tacomas gotta go. I had 4gs into it and sold it for what I bought it for. Its life man!

I understand where your coming from and your right.
Buy a beater or just not have a car.

But Perfektdemon commenting someone on their spelling isnt a good way to get started on the forum. His spelling wasn't that bad, so just dont be a dick.

Re: need help/money

honestly although some responses seem to be pretty dik, but i agree fully.

you are on a tuner public forum and the majority of our member's are young students that aren't fukkin rockefeller! we all have money problems... times are tough and you have the balls to ask the community for money.

my anger comes from the fact that you are one of the newer members on the site and you don't even contribute all that much. you might have a chance if you were someone w/ a reputation on PZ. and i don't mean a reputation for being a dikhed like E, but i mean a guy like E that has a reputation for being really helpful and informative. ()

instead of crying to us for help w/ $$$ for your engine go start a lemonade stand!!

or more realistic if you really love the lude that much go take out another student loan!

Re: need help/money

Alright guys. I understand everything your saying. Even if some of you are b****es about it. The reason my speeling was bad is because I was typing with one hand because I was giving plasma at the time to make a little more money. And I was just shooting for an H23 or H22. Also I already have posted about asking if anyone had a motor laying around and I gave them the price I could afford. I knew it was a shot in the dark to post this but damn. Some people are harsh. All I have ever drivin in my life was beaters and I worked my ass off to finally get a lude. As for getting another loan that is probably not the best choice seeing as how I am paying almost 400 in insurance with full coverage.
I undrstand how this could make people mad but your right, I did have the balls to do it. I was asking for help from one lude lover to another. Not dicks telling me stuff I am allready doing or have considered with great thought. This was a last ditch effort. So I would appreiate if you guys would just be helpful or not say anything at all.

Re: need help/money

dude asking people for money to buy a new motor for a lude is bang out of order, people who have expensive motors or can afford to buy how powered cars shouldnt ask for money when shyt goes wrong with their cars IMO if you cant afford to have your motor replaced then you shouldnt be driving a car in the first place - suck it up and save up like everyone else does otherwise buy a bicycle, especially in this day and age when people are dying of starvation / losing their homes / jobs etc and your worried about ur damn car. and even if i did have the money to help you out i wouldnt and would rather donate to a needy cause - at least that way they will throw out a prayer for you here and there which will do you a whole lot more good then worrying about ur car!

Re: need help/money

Why don't you get another student loan? It will pay for your motor and you won't have to pay until you have graduated (except interest of course, unless you get a loan that doesn't require that).

I have a baby on the way so if I'm not spending money on my lude then I am spending money on cribs, strollers, clothes, and other boring crap. So I can't help you out with a donation.

Hope you get your lude running. Mine is currently not working and I'm dying to drive it too. Good luck.

Honestly, I'm not gonna get on here and be a cock sucker, I think everyone else has done a good enough job of that.

I personally can't help you with money (my lude has been on jackstands for 7 months, and I'm finally half way done. That should tell you somethin right there) but I can help you with some advice.

First, drop full coverage. If your paying 4 a month for full, you'll probably pay 100/mnth for liability. Thats 300 a month extra right there. And if your car isn't moving, then take it off the insurance policy. That 800 in 2 months. Thats enough for an H22.

Also, When I totaled my explorer (I spent some $$$$ on it too) I had to buy a $400 car. $400. It was a rusted up dented up POS cutlass. 1988. A few dollars put into it and a good cleaning with some white primer the car looked pretty nice.

Some times you have to resort to beater cars. I wish I had a before picture of the cutlass. I'll see if I can find one. This is after I was done.

EXCUSE ME?! ok fighting on a forum is ****ing pathethic but you want to talk about problems?

Im being a bitch for a reason, and so is everyone else here.

LOOK UP ANYONESSSSSSS i MEAN THIS ANYONESSSSS Screen NAME HERE.

Everyone at one point was "STUCK" didn't know what to do, was less informative and short cashed. Either the lude didn't move, or we tried hard to get money.

I sank over 10k into my black 5th gen, i did not ask nothing but help on this forum..and it never resorted to money.

Im sorry to sound like a dick, and i dont know if this is pissing off mods the way im coming off..but your on your own pal. Nobody has money to throw out there..Im broke as a mother****er, just got threw an accident, and going threw problems with my new lude. Im a full time student, trying every ****ing day for a job. I have yet to make a thread stating i need money. If i cant afford something at the moment the lude aint going no where.

Also just to add the icing to the cake..your little sympathy story of giving out plasma and typing with one hand..that really set me off. At that point i rather give money to a homeless person in the city that would be honest to me and say hes going to use it to drink, then give you a cent.

Now to not be a dick and help you out, DO what Nick said..(Smok3y), You cant drive the lude? Drop insurance..use that money to get it running. Its really stupid to pay for insurance if you cant drive it. And you should already be putting money aside since your not using gas money.

Re: need help/money

^Man I hear ya. Everyone here that has posted negative or not is a pretty darn good guy. But a sob story like this just rubs everyone the wrong way. The comment about typing with one hand giving plasma! You have an internet capable phone!?!?! Data plans are at LEAST 30 bucks a month!

Everyone on here has stories of hard times. My dad was the sole provider for our family and when diagnosed with cancer worked through his chemotherapy as a self employed electrician. We had food, a roof and basic cable because there was a lot of times he could leave the house. You ever woken up more than 1 night out of the week to you dad moaning in pain and crying? I don't need sympathy or handouts. I toughed it out. Sorry if I'm going to far but this strikes a chord with me.

Ok well I can't get any pictures because I'm at the girly's house, but here is an old video of the cutty, with some pictures and a burnout video. Just an old video I took about a year and a half ago. Here's another picture of it. 400 dollars, 78k original miles when I bought it.

Re: need help/money

Here is something that struck a chord in me, this link is of a guy who says he was robbed during the holidays and tells a sob story. Then after a mysterious "new" person on the forum asks what his paypal name is, a couple people jump on the bandwagon and start donating money to him because it was the holiday time. Turns out, after his story falls through when a person from the town he got robbed said they worked at the police department and had no reports of this incident and asked the guy to come in and give a report, the guy starts to reply less.

In the end, he quietly starts giving back everyone's money.

I personally think the OP is a scammer, just my $.02

Re: need help/money

If you have certain things that you dont need (like internet capable phones, no they are not a necessity) sell them. That would be a true last ditch attempt. Look around your house/room/dorm/appt, find things that have value but you havent used in a long time, and sell them. I'm not trying to be a dick but you have to work for **** if you want it. My cousin goes to college full time, and works every day, her transportation is a bicycle, even in the snow.

Also just to add the icing to the cake..your little sympathy story of giving out plasma and typing with one hand..that really set me off. At that point i rather give money to a homeless person in the city that would be honest to me and say hes going to use it to drink, then give you a cent.
I know for a fact that he's not a "Scammer." Last time I hung out with him he talked about how he donated plasma on a regular basis. I also know he's a pretty good guy. Just because he's asking for donations doesn't make him a "Scammer." I know, we've all had tough times and it's hard to get out of a rut, but I give him his props for at least asking.

If you have useful, productive things to say, go for it, but if you're just looking for a scapegoat to let a bitch-trip loose on, just keep it to yourself.

Like I said man, you got my number, so if you need help with anything just hit me up. Good luck.

If you know him on a personal level then thats one thing. We dont, im not looking to make myself look like an ass but if your posting on a public forum, whether its phones, games, cars, computers, etc... expect criticism.

Your asking for money over the internet during a recession. Many people gave well answers stating we all went through these times and had no choice but to station the car.

And i still stand by my statement, sympathy stating hes giving plasma, fine im glad hes doing good but exaggerating just for us to sympathize for him is not making himself look better.

I personally can't help you with money (my lude has been on jackstands for 7 months, and I'm finally half way done. That should tell you somethin right there) but I can help you with some advice.

First, drop full coverage. If your paying 4 a month for full, you'll probably pay 100/mnth for liability. Thats 300 a month extra right there. And if your car isn't moving, then take it off the insurance policy. That 800 in 2 months. Thats enough for an H22.

Also, When I totaled my explorer (I spent some $$$$ on it too) I had to buy a $400 car. $400. It was a rusted up dented up POS cutlass. 1988. A few dollars put into it and a good cleaning with some white primer the car looked pretty nice.

Some times you have to resort to beater cars. I wish I had a before picture of the cutlass. I'll see if I can find one. This is after I was done.
Today I talked to my insurance agent and we put the car on storage insurance, Buth its still over 100.

I did not use my phone while giving plasma. I used my POS laptop that I got for college purposes that I would sell if I did not need it for college, and I wouldnt even get much for it because its crap. And I wasnt telling you about the plasma to get sympathy. It is not a sob story. LOL giving plasma.... what a tear jerker! wtf? I could tell you about my life if I wanted sympathy. I had a very similar situation to yours.
