I guess it serves me right for making fun of duck-faced people.
Anyway - I'm 100% sure this is due to a worn lock cylinder - my keys are so worn that they barely have any teeth left on them.
Somehow I was able to get a couple of replacement keys made that worked for a little while....but now I'm hosed completely.
Has anyone ever had their entire ignition or lock cylinder replaced on the spot? Are there any reputable auto locksmiths in NJ that anyone can recommend?
I got stuck at the Jets complex in Hempstead a couple years back when Bobby Houston, Hugh Douglas and the rest of em played ball for the Jets.
my ignition got stuck and woundn't turn, that old dude security guard wouldn't give me a break said I had to move it right away. gas station up the street had to help me, yes he did! to the tune of 400 hundred smackers.
back then I was poor, could hardly make ends meet took me 3 months to get my car back with all the expenses I had.
Oh I lived in the Bronx went to hempstead to get a ticket and got stuck. I'll never forget that event. If you could only see me now.
It was the most recent car thread I could recall.
Maybe if I got an extra hundy out of that guy I sold my 77 Scirocco too....that would would have been some sweet deal, really taken that schlub to the cleaners.
