mad Vandals on Christmas - please read, need pity!

So, I'm heading home from a Christmas Childrens Program on christmas eve, my girlfriend is following me because my tires were bald and the roads were spotty, while coming around a corner 4 blocks from my house my car stalls, I turn the key and it cranks and cranks, and then nothing. I've had problems with keeping my car idleing, and after replacing the plugs/wires/cap/rotor running cleaner through it etc. it still does it. Anyway I was heading to drop my car off at my place and from there we were going to my parents to open presents so instead of messing with the car I just left it. The next morning (christmas day) I return to my car to find that some m*th*r f*ck*r busted the sunroof. This is in a very small town where everyone knows my car and until yesterday I thought I had no enemies. I'd really like to know who the hell did it, and why. My car is a major hooptie (as stated on the back window!) so why would someone just break the sunroof? Everyone there knows my car has a bad-ass stereo system, and an alarm, so why would they mess with it? Judging by the footprints in the snow, it looks like they tried to jimmy the locks, but there is nothing missing from my car. :fmad:
When I find out who it was I'm going to then I'm going to & and if they try to I'm going to and if that doesn't work I'll or just return the favor to their vehicle. What really sucks Is I only had PLPD on it and that expired on 12-12-01 and I didn't renew it because I wasn't driving it since the wheel bearing went on me! :fmad:

The worst thing about this is it was a factory sunroof, I haven't looked into replacing it yet as I have NO $, I didn't even buy a single christmas present this year because I was foolish and used my credit cards when I shouldn't have and now I'm hurtin because my car keeps breaking down on me, every time I fix something, something else goes wrong within 2 weeks!. It looks like my only option right now is to duct tape a piece on plexi-glass in it's place. That will look real good with my 3-4 shades of burgandy, fadded paint, dented fender, broken mirror, 3 15" rims, 1 16" rim, broken headlights, and black taillights. Pics coming soon.

I tried to help you out with your question about your car stalling in the LX section, but you didnt mention that it happened when you turned corners. If that's the case then it's most likely your fuel pump. This is a problem that I have heard of many times before and it's usually the pump going out. Sorry to hear about your sunroof! That really sucks man, I'd start asking questions since it's a small town and someone has got to know something.

Laters!

This all comes down to a lack of respect. Parents don't seem to teach it anymore. When I was a we tacker disrespecting others property would get me a very sore backside. Being taught the value of money doesn't hurt either.

I never kept anything in this car but:

Same here.

Are you dissing my the foolish decisions I've made in the past? I've had a job since I was 8 years old and paying Income Taxes since I was 14. I know the value of money, I just had a lot of bad luck and hard times, and the only way to justify it (in my mind) was to buy more things. I have learned my lesson and am on the road to recovery and it won't happen again.
