My first giveaway!

I've never done a giveaway before, and I was planning on doing one for my 100th post but I decided to make it a little bit earlier because I have a great idea!

First, a little background. My vehicle is a piece of crap, seriously it's just like the car in that Adam Sandler song. It is literally falling apart daily. To illustrate, here is the current list of everything that is wrong with it:
  • The rear differential is going out and needs to be rebuilt
  • There is a problem with the transmission
  • There is a hole in the windshield washer fluid container so I never have washerfluid
  • There is a short in the electrical system
  • The weather stripping around the doors is falling down
  • The thing that holds up the rear liftgate is starting to fall occasionally
  • The CD player no longer works
  • Sometimes the lights don't come on when I open the driver's side door
  • The hood won't stay up

I also just recently replaced the crankshaft sensor and the drive sensor. I've put 5 batteries in it. This is also the same vehicle that for no apparent reason rolled down my mom's driveway into the truck when I was inside watching television.

Needless to say, I'm hoping to trade vehicles very soon!

The Giveaway:

Basically what I've planned to do is to create some sort of contest to see who can guess what will break on my car next.

Comment on this post with your guess.

If you guess correctly then you win. Yay! In the event that I trade vehicles before something else breaks, falls off, etc., I will decide the winner based on the funniest most creative entry!

Which means there are two ways in which you can win: (1) be correct in what breaks next or (2) come up with something that is super funny and creative.

I will announce the winner as soon as something else breaks or when I get a new car.

I haven't decided what the winner is going to get yet, but look for a post very soon with the details of that plus a reminder of the giveaway!

Wow. I feel like I should knock on wood for any suggestion I give in hopes that it actually won't happen. Your car seems fairly unlucky.

I'm going to say a belt breaking is going to be your next problem.

Dibs on your window gasket breaking, ie. you won't be able to roll it up or down and the lining will come out.

I like to think of your car as well loved.

Bless your heart! Or should I say, bless your car's heart! Maybe the roof will come off and you could have a convertible! Always looking for the silver lining. :) I hope nothing serious happens though.

I think that the crunch gasket on your front Johnson rod will loose pressure....just kidding- I have no idea about cars- I just made that up.
