You need a certain part so you decide to order it, but you cant resist and order a few other odds and ends.... so when the UPS guy shows up, and low and behold everything is there but the only stuff you needed! you look down, and sure enough, there it is in the backordered section. I lost some hinge bolts so i ordered them from MU, but of course they were backordered! i got everything else but the stuff i need. Am I the only one that this happens to?

Yep you are the only one. Must be something you did in a previous life.
Have you ever owned a Chevy? That could be the problem.

Welcome to the real world. In my case I am usually in the Stang shop and the part I need is on back order so I wind buying other things as a consolation.

Probably the UPS driver getting even for making him work so hard.....lol

Dang! Just when I got used to being "strange", I became a "newbie", then a "tire-kicker". Now I'm a "beginner"?.....hmmmmmm...where do I start?

My favorite deal is to add stuff to my order that I don't really need for month(s) and then forget where the H*** I put the darn thing and of course end up ordering it again...... then finding the original! guess I'll open a parts store?

And I thought I was the only one that did that. Or even better, Have you ever thrown something away because it was useless, only to need it next week?

Cause the "useless" turns out to be better than any other "used" part you can find! and FAR cheaper!

Or the car you sold in '82 because you didn't have room for it, and it wasn't worth the time and effort anyway. Only to realize later that the trunk was full of parts you needed?
I got a doofus nomination for that one!

You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me!!!

My wife sold a dresser for $50 (I think). After the people left with it, we later realized she'd not gotten the antique Derenger (sp?) out of the bottom.

Happened to me several times.... You would think companies would tell you if an item was out of stock when ordering. I always ask the order taker to make sure the item is in their inventory before I give them my c.c.#

Required tools for operating a Vintage Mustang:
1. Duct Tape
2. J.B. Weld
3. B.F.H. (Big Fat Hammer)
4. VINTAGE MUSTANG FORUMS II
