    Well, I cant afford 25 bucks because i live in canada so that makes it 38 bucks canadian. And I Just spent 3000.00 on school in the last month and only have 12 hour a week at work. I spent 700 bucks on 38's for my 72 K20, not to mention a grand on a lift kit(pricey up here), and puked both front shafts, so I now need a Dana 60, which I have located for 1000.00 and am gonna buy. Also need new rear drivshaft cause mines starting to look like a pretzel, and needs to be shortened anyways cause i bought a SWB stepside box for it(100.00). My insurance on my road truck was due last month and cost me 3200.00 (18 years old+V8+Heavy foot=high premiums)SO that is why I cant afford the membership. Add it up and its 8 grand I have already spent in two months and i still need a Dana 60 and a driveshaft /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif It never ends. /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif

    okay, we'll, here's the truth. I let my mother in law and brother in law move in with us. They're both druggies. They pretty much borrowed all our money and trashed our house. We ended up losing the house because of it. So we moved into a rental house. We had two cars at the time, a 97 Dakota SLT 2x4 with a 318 and a 97 eclipse convertible. We all lived in this rental house, we were charging the mother and brother in laws to live in the back, I think they paid their rent twice. They continued to borrow money ( and we were dumb enough to keep giving it to them) and then the mother gets arrested for filling false prescriptions and almost got my wife (who was 81/2 months pregnant arrested too because she was using my wife's name on some of the prescriptions). So I catch my bother in law and his brother packing up one day, not even going to tell us they were leaving. We ended up getting evicted from that house and moved into a little tiny apartment. On my birthday after we moved in, both our cars got repo'd, so we had to borrow a friends maxima (like an 85 I think, the fan didn't work, you had to turn it on with a switch). We also had a baby in that time period. So now, we have 2 kids, 2 dogs (1 being a 140 lb Great dane) and we're living in an apt that doesn't allow dogs. So I have to get up at 2 am every night to sneak the dogs out. We get evicted from there because they suck (not because of the dogs mind you, but because they wanted us out...a really long story) and move into another apartment. We finally bought a car, a 99 Kia Sephia, and I found my truck. We scraped the money togther to buy that, and found it had bad brakes, so we parked that until we get the money together to buy the parts to do the brakes, I did those, now I'm saving up for an oil/all the filters change and praying nothing brakes. I also have to work in the Kia because it now needs brakes. On top of that Insurance in FL is killing me, we have rent, feeding the dogs, two small mouths to feed. How's that for pathetic. I can't afford parts for my truck, much less a membership right now. Hook a guy up.

    How about membership renewal?
    Let's see, bought a 14BFF fully dressed from Wes (that alone should be enough for a kickback /forums/images/icons/grin.gif ), at the same time I bought a D60. Two days after I picked them up from forward air I got laid off from the company I've been working at for 8 yrs and now can't afford to get the wheels/tires to put my new axles on /forums/images/icons/frown.gif I'll take any donations I can get /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I'd vote for zcarczar. I really feel for someone with a broken pile of parts like in that pic. I also know how hard it is trying to fix things on a no budjet, and a membership should make his day.

    Re: Free Membership giveaway sponsored by \"thatK30guy\"

    I am a Marine, So we know I am already broke. Also I live in Southern CA so everything is expensive, my wife just lost her job 2 days after buying a new car. Now she can't find a new job. I can only check this site at work now because we cut off out internet and cable to save money. We had to eat our dog for dinner last week, couldn't afford to feed her anymore, ran out of propane about half way through, and had to eat her half raw. Wasn't bad though. If my cat's don't stop eating so much they are next. I just hope my wife gets a job soon or I will have to sell one of my trucks.
    Well I hope you guys can find it in your heart to vote for me, not that I will ever buy anything from you cause I am broke but it would be nice.
    Thanks
    Homeless and hungry.

    Re: Free Membership giveaway sponsored by \"thatK30guy\"

    I could use teh free membership, since school is $10,000 a semester. Room and board is another $2500 a semester. My Scout is getting new axles, a cage, 37 MTRs, beadlocks, full hydro steering, a winch, fuel cell, and loads of other stuff. I had a girlfriend over the summer, so you know I did not have any money to save from my job. I get 10 mpg, and I am taking 16.5 hours worth of hard ass classes, so I might be able to get 12 hours a week working at a job some where for minimum wage. What better way to get me to get a K5 then by giving me a ColoardoK5 membership?
