i was w my gf yesterday shopping around, and she bought me a wood burning tool. i never ever have seen this nor used it, played around with it for a few hrs, and decided to step it up a notch.

Hey that's really good for a first timer. If I tried it would probably end up looking like a Yugo.

Hi,

I used to work in Chicago for a Serbian Guy named Norm Kuka. While he was born and raised in the US (Duluth, MN), he nonetheless had an affinity for all things from Yugoslavia. He married a girl from Yugoslavia and even had a Serbian Restaurant in Chicago named the Yugo Inn, operated by his wife, Rada.

Anyway, back in 1985, Norm asked me to give him a ride, that he was picking up his new car - the 2nd Yugo delivered in Chicago. Anyway, we went to the dealership and the car, a brand new 1986 Yugo, was brought out.

Norm got inside, adjusted the seats and the mirrors, put the car into gear, and just as he was releasing the clutch, the Driver's side Mirror just fell off and broke in the dealer's driveway. On close inspection, the mounting screws had been stripped on installation - not a very auspicious start.

BTW, nice wood burning! I tried it once and all I got was a bunch of charred tinder...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99

well my dads car was delivered brand new w no spare tire or jack to lift the car, few fuses missing and stuff like that. but the thing never broke down or left him stranded, but the car is ugly and small, but runs like hell

and thx, i thought that id never be able to create anything close to the designs on the box and whatnot, but hey, looks like a boxster by glancing at it, so its a success fo me
