Key a car?

I can't believe even ONE person would key someone's car for $100. You are sick. For some people, a car is their pride and joy. When you walk of a store, it's like a dagger in their heart. I wish inconsiderate people knew that. If you trap someone in a revolving door, there's really no harm done. Unless they suffocate... and then that would be bad. But anyways, please stop keying my cars if you do. It's beyond mean. See the scene in Pulp Fiction between John Travolta and Eric Stoltz to see a great rendition of how that feels (it may only be in the deleted scenes, I can't remember).

Eh, just pick a car that needs to go to the junk yard anyway. One with 3 different colors of paint and a bunch of rust.

I agree with Doug, you just don't key someones car no matter what.

RE: Key a car?

I hate my ex, but her car is nice. I couldn't physically bring myself to damaging it. Not because I don't want her to feel mental anguish or aggravation, but because the car never really did anything to me (except provide a comfy backseat)...

His car ripped my jeans one time, but this was not the reason why my friends attacked him. At any rate, I kinda felt bad that they did, I certainly didn’t ask them to, but then I remembered what he did, and I got over it.

I picked that! That'd be the one you'd be least likley to get in trouble for...and if you DO get caught, buy them a nice bottle of touch up paint. That's still $95.00 profit.

RE: Key a car?

This is the most ridiculous thread ever. A car is like an appliance. You use it to move around (too much). If it gets scratched, IT STILL MOVES YOU AROUND!!! Any emotional attachment to these things is a character flaw. Sorry about your loveless childhood.

RE: Key a car?

Loveless childhood? Molly, my father and I restore cars together, as a hobby. My mom even gets involved sometimes, especially when we were working on a Canary Yellow '67 Chevelle, just like the one she had when she was younger. To some people, a car is not just a mode of transportation. Just imagine how you'd feel if I damaged an object that you put time and effort into keeping looking great? How about if I threw some paint over your favorite shirt or pair of jeans? You could still wear them to cover yourself, they are still functional. Think about it.

Scratching a yellow 68 Camaro is not the same as just 'scratching a stranger's car'. Just trying to make a greater point on our overuse of the automobile.

RE: Key a car?

Oh, I see... So it's justifiable to scratch some guy's 94 Nissan Altima because it's not a classic, no matter how much he cares for the car and wants to keep it looking good. That makes sense.

Does everyone have this mentality? In your brain, "it's just a car; a mode of transportation" allows you to devalue another person's possession?

Oh, and to this argument: "If you get caught, buy $5 touch up paint..." Um, sorry, that's not how it's going to go when someone catches you scratching their car. You'd be lucky if your face doesn't end up through the windshield of your own car. I personally wouldn't do it, but how about Vince Vega and his Malibu (again see Pulp Fiction)?

I really hate getting into arguments on internet posts, but if I can change one car keyer's mentality, than I have just prevented someone's heart from being broken when they find their property damaged. I may have also saved the life of a cruel, heartless car keyer if he/she decides to think twice. I'll get off my soapbox now.

RE: Key a car?

I have a bad habit of keying cars. Everytime I see a car with one of those Jesus fish I have to key it. I also key cars if they have one of those dumb vanity plates. Sometimes I'll key really nice cars because I can't have them. Makes me angry to see a nice old car because of the jerk thats smirking at my behind the wheel. For some reason BMW's have really good paint for keying. It's like really deep or something.

RE: Key a car?

I fully agree with Dougs opinion on this thread. I have a 95 Altima, its not that great of a car, it has some scratches already but when I bought it I paid over $15,000 for it and I would like to keep it in as best shape as possible.
If your the kind of person like in the last post who likes to key cars just because its a car you'll never be able to afford (which I am sure you just wrote to **** people off) then go ahead and do it if it makes you feel better about yourself. I think I could live with a scratch on my car if I knew that it came from someone so miserable that the only joy they can get out of life is jealousy.
