Micro-Fundraiser for the Official DonationCoder CodyMobile!

Announcing a Selfish Micro-Fundraiser for the Official DonationCoder CodyMobile!

CodyMobileGolf2004b.jpg

Hi fellow DC folks..  I am saving up to buy my first car, which I plan to make the official DonationCoder "CodyMobile".

It will spread the visage of Cody and the DonationCoder name throughout the land and be used to ferry visiting DC members from the train station to my house. But most of all it will be used by me to go grocery shopping.

I don't have a particular car picked out yet -- I only know that I am looking at used small hatchbacks from 2004 or so, with 100k+ miles, to be purchased off of craigslist (a Cody decal will be applied after purchase).

My target price is $5,000, which is where I could use your help :).

I have about half that much saved up, and I'm looking for all the help I can get for the remainder.

So if you can spare a few DonationCredits to send my way or if you've never donated to the site but you've used my software, consider this a request to finally take the plunge and donate:

Note: This fundraiser is really a selfish thing for myself, and does not benefit the site so please don't consider this a big deal like our main fundraisers.. This is just me asking for a little personal help.

I'll update here the contributions received for the CodyMobile car fund so far: $532.34

Should this be moved to the Basement?

I think I'll park it in a garage or on the street like a normal car.

Put up a barometer so that we can see the progress?

Personally I do not separate professional and personal needs (except to the IRS), they are inseparable in my opinion.

So how is it going?
We want to live the purchase with you!

Just received a wonderful $25 donation towards the fund not 5 minutes ago, bringing me to $341.33.
At this rate, you might see the CodyMobile by this time next year -- a bit long to wait but if i've waited this long i can wait another year.

Looks like the Codymobile fund has stalled out.
Perhaps the universe is trying to tell me something, but I have never been one to listen to the universe.  Contributions still welcome  :Thmbsup:

Goodness, must have missed this the first time through.  Been awhile since I last donated, but I skipped Starbucks for the last two weeks so let's keep this going...

Would not recommend anything made by Pontiac. I drive a Pontiac Grand am, and little things are always falling off it. (luckily it still runs perfectly though). My girlfriend drives a Pontiac Grand Prix, and she has similar problems with it.

Surely you don't really need four wheels, do you?

Mouser, you should go the way that I'm going... The Elio.  Not out until next year, but that's definitely what I'm getting for my commute car.

Surely you don't really need four wheels, do you?
 

Apparently not :P

Got me there  ;D

Then there's this astonishing claim:

Elio has been designed to fit 95% of all men.
Let's see… world population > 7 billion divide by…  hmmm that's a LOT of capacity for such a little car!  ;)
