    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    I'm a bit tired today because at around 1:00 AM, the neighbor's early 90's Chrysler New Yorker's horn suddenly started blaring for no reason. The bad part is that the neighbors are on vacation. I assume that the horn relay or something decided to short circuit or something, but it stayed on for almost an hour and a half, right outside our house. So we, as well as the whole damned block couldn't sleep. My House mate tried to see if he could get under the hood. No luck. My Wife stuck cotton in her ears. The Police showed up. BY this time, half the neighborhood was standing outside their houses. The Police didn't know what to do either. So it just sat there blaring away until it sounded like the horn just sort of died. Maybe it burnt itself out.

    Never seen anything like that happen. I hope to god it doesn't happen again because that was AWFUL!

    fwiw...our dept has a policy that we can only open a car door if someone's life is in danger...

    that is obviously not the case here and we couldnt have done anything about it other than to try and get in touch with the owner...not that it would do much good...or wait for the battery to die
