So it's been a frustrating month when it comes to our cars situation, well among other things too, like sick kids. Anyways last year, I don't know what we were thinking, but we bought two cars in the same month. So this year we get to have safety, emissions, and register both of our cars together. So much fun! Well the van passed no problems. The civic did not.
Stupid, stupid, stupid horn does not work which means it does not pass the safety inspection. We bought a new horn and Brett hooked it up. Didn't work. Brett checked the spark plugs. Didn't work. At this point we are thinking, crap, what are we going to do. Brett called a couple of places and they all said just to find out what is wrong with the horn would be about 80 bucks then however long it took them to fix it. Now we are getting into numbers that are starting to be more than what the car is actually worth. O.k. maybe not that much but pretty close!
I was getting mad because it seems so dumb to me that we have to spend all this money on a car that works perfectly except for the stupid horn.
So Brett got an idea from a co-worker on what to do. And this is what they came up with.....
So seriously how ghetto is this. Yup that is the horn.
Brett has made up a label that says "Press here for horn" that he is going to put above it. All that matters is that it passed! I have to wonder what the guys at the inspection place were thinking when they saw this. It can't be the worse thing ever. I am pretty sure that I remember one of my brothers tying their bumper to the rest of the car with some string. Anyone ever do anything creative to their car to pass inspection?
