Default What DUMB thing did you do (PT Related)?

I have owned our PT for almost a year and just last week realized I have a tilt steering wheel! LOL - WOW that is bad!

I keep pulling the emergency brake going round corners ... this occasionally ends with me in the snow bank.

... I regret nothing.

Over pay for a gt!?!??

But been thinking of trading in. Just can't afford the 14.5 mpg on premium gas anymore.

Been eyeballing the 05-07 prius though. 60 mpg city sounds great. And still looks weird enough.

I just noticed the little hook on the gas door to hang the strap for the gas cap to avoid scratches. We've had this car for four years.
