Awesome song, thanks for sharing. I Have never owned a car my entire life, 4 trucks and counting. hehe, and most of em had rusted rims and body hehe.
i saw a plastic uke like that in a local music store the other day. how much should they go for?

well, i got all my plastic ukes off ebay and the most i paid was $30 plus shipping. the rest were between $10 and 20 plus shipping. i've seen them go for Crazy Money- over 100 bucks. that's a lot to pay for something that's gonna sound like you put strings on a tupperware bowl no matter what, y' know?

thanks for the kind comments y'all! i appreciate it!

You make plastic sound so damn good! A tupperware bowl would love to sound that good.

Strings on a tupperware bowl (http://www.geocities.com/tpe123/folkurban/uke/uke.html).

Make sure to check out the sound sample (right up at the top of the page).

BTW... Rusted Out Rims was great. I would have said so on YouTube but you stopped allowing comments.

It might have been disabled because YouTube was doing some site maintenance at the time. In any event, it looks like it's working now.
