Bring back the guns!

I saw a relatively new and nice car that had no rims (possibly they were stolen) today. The other people in my car pointed and laughed, approriately. Good on them.
2003-05-29 12:46:20 AM  
meanwhile walmart sells the same set for $20... good going fellas!
2003-05-29 12:49:04 AM  
now my question is... why the hell steal hubcaps??
1. there are at LEAST a full 2-3 sets on the side of the road at all times.
2. they aren't "rims" or "dubs"... theyre hubcaps for shiats sake
3. Gunpoint?? Take them off a parked car!

I have lost all faith in humanity....

I went in vacation for a couples of days with some friends and when we came back, one of my friends, who had left his car in his appartment parking lot while we were away, found out his car had no wheel left. The car wasn't even on blocks. heh!

heh sorry

"to take hubcaps from her car"

Teenagers are getting bored these days. Or hubcaps are made of gold.

Umm, I believe you forgot to make a couple of other corrections....

I gave a hubcap to a girl and then confessed my love to her. She showed me how much she loved me by going out with a complete douche bag. I told her it was the hubcap of love... she shot me in the face off a bridge then cut up my entire body off.

Kre8iv_gal lol well maybe, still have some troubles with english! But I'm trying my best!:o)
2003-05-29 01:21:15 AM  
People still bother to use and or steal hub caps?
2003-05-29 01:21:37 AM be all about the dubs...

"Lt. Gambrell said the case being investigated as an armed robbery and third degree lynching." Third degree lynching??? I always thought you had to hang someone for that.
2003-05-29 01:23:21 AM  
Some people don't deserve to live. This article is an example of those people. That is all.
2003-05-29 01:29:23 AM  
WTF? Are hubcaps getting that expensive these days? Whats next? The neon wiper blades? The park-bench spoilers?
2003-05-29 01:37:39 AM  
btw, why am I not surprise it was an Honda Civic? heh!
2003-05-29 01:51:17 AM  
What the heck is a third degree lynching?
2003-05-29 02:00:10 AM  
i would'a took the valve caps instead
2003-05-29 02:17:49 AM  
They could probably sell the gun and buy two or three sets of hubcaps.
2003-05-29 02:45:35 AM  
Was it Vahnilla Ice's ride? probaly.
2003-05-29 03:01:08 AM  
Civic Nation. Represent.
2003-05-29 03:04:33 AM  
Im not suprised. You know how much Honda charges for 89 Accord HUBCAPS? fvckin' $45 Not even rims, plastic hubcaps that chip and break off on curbs....If i had a gun and nothing to lose, i'd rob people of their accord hubs too...That's fenceable on the street for like $40 a hub, they're so many of them that it's not a risk selling them out of a trunk

I hope I'm never carjacked, because I think my GTA III reflexes would kick in. Does anyone remember a video from a few months ago with teens who were pretending to carjack people with a fake gun? While sometimes standing in front of the car? Maybe it's a good thing that GTA III has a third-person perspective...

Can't you just go to a scrap yard?
Surely no-one buys original parts for a 15 year old car.
A few years ago I needed a radiator and the original part was $200. My local scrap yard sold me one for $10.

Who needs hub caps anyway?
2003-05-29 06:52:52 AM  
It's easy to get around this sort of thing by being so appalling at parking that all your hubcaps are totally shafted.
2003-05-29 07:22:46 AM  
This doesn't suprise me. Greenville is a real shiat hole. I should know I was born and raised there, until I was old enough to escape it's horrible circle of rednecks, thugs, and vastly growing illegal imigrant population. You guys know one of those places that they need to just drop a bomb on and start over. It's the kind of place where there isn't shiat better to do then punk someone in front of there woman and take their hub caps. Go Berea!
2003-05-29 08:13:36 AM  
Only in Greenville, folks. Only in Greenville.
2003-05-29 08:19:04 AM  
The sad part is that this was in broad daylight in one of the busier areas of downtown Greenville. Did nobody notice anything happening?
2003-05-29 08:39:29 AM  
Wasn't it "I'm gonna git you sucka" where they wore hubcaps around thier necks?
2003-05-29 09:40:05 AM  
I think Jimmy Luxury summed it up best:

"Kid don't bother stealing the hubcaps. Steal the whole car!!!"
2003-05-29 10:33:55 AM  
Lynching is a Carolina thang--- South Carolina, y'all.

It's when a 'group' of thugs are involved. Yeah, it came from the days when groups of angry, scared white people would go yank the black people up into the trees -usually on baseless accusations and assumptions.
I'm not sure if it is just more than one participant or if a certain number need to perpetrate an act that would cause jailarity to ensue.

An interesting fact is that it's now become the black crime. Statistics are showing something like 76% of all lynchings charged are to black participants.

Texas advertises that it's like a whole 'nuther country.
South Carolina should advertise;
Hey y'all, there's nowhere else like us and we like it that way!
2003-05-29 11:19:58 AM  
SimplyEdie, thats why South Carolina is a beautiful place!!! I was born and raised in Columbia, although I now live in Atlanta for work. I love the state of South Carolina and think it is a great state. Put their arses in jail!
2003-05-29 11:44:42 AM  
You think that's scary? In England, they shoot you in the head for your cell phone.
2003-05-29 11:47:23 AM  
What the fukk does "lynching" have to do with anything?
2003-05-29 11:56:28 AM  
i absolutely loathe hubcaps
2003-05-30 12:59:01 AM  
i woulda atleast stolen the fender *rolls her eyes*
2003-05-30 12:14:14 PM  
"incident started at the Peace Center "

That is just to damn ironic.
2003-05-30 01:44:17 PM  
Dude, this shiat apparently happened about 2 minutes from my front door. Yes, for the record, Greenville sucks.
