Yep.

Damn thing got repossessed so i said screw it and asked them if they wanted to keep it and clear the loan. They agreed, was upsidedown so it worked out.

Got me a '96 Impreza L that i'm doing jdm ej20g drivetrain swap w/ ej257 shortblock(got that in the garage already hehe) Will be nice to have a quick car for once.

Ummm....... Obviously too lazy to send payment many times, cause they don't come and take your car if you just missed one, the worst that happens is you have to pay extra money that month.

but yea thats not really something to laugh about, since your car got taken away for a dumb reason, and you just screwed up your credit in the process or whoevers credit your car is on.

I know that you fell like laughing is the only way the handle the situation right now, but you should kick yourself in the teeth for not getting those payments out on time.

It's going to be hard for you to get another vehicle again. The Subaru isn't going to last forever.

My brother did this to me when I co-signed for his Civic 5 years ago. I got this call out of the blue from the bank asking me where the car was because they were going to try and repo it the nice way first. I gave them my brother's address where he was living at the time and they were unable to find the car for a couple of months. My brother knew they were coming to get the car for quite sometime because he changed addresses three times in a span of one year.

So I called him to ask in WTF is going on and he admitted that he didn't make payments on the car for....(are you ready for this part?)








AN ENTIRE FRICKING YEAR!!!! I almost went to jail that night for beating the shit out of him. I couldn't believe that my own brother would do that for an entire year with total lack of regard of who he was tainting in the process. Yep, he got away with not paying for an entire year and put all those "would be" payments towards a trip to Amsterdam with his stupid ass friends. The good thing is that I got a lawyer to mock up some papers saying that he was going to end up in court if he didn't take care of this ASAP. It worked, the car has been paid off since last summer, and I still don't talk to his .
