Everything I've owed has been called a "piece of shit" at one time or another. If I road in it or on it....started it with a key or pulled a rope....pedaled it or pushed it, from hotrods to work trucks, lawn mower's or chainsaws right down to the first stingray bike I tore apart to "make it better" back in '68.....they were all called "piece of shit" at one time or another.
