we all know the feeling(i hope), your first named shield booster, the old indy you have owned for so long that you cant remember when you bought it, the frigate that always seems to escape, sometimes, barely hanging together on the duct tape you had in the glove compartment? :P

i have a few such items
my favorite, an old dominix, by the name of "the bent cannonball", the very first battleship i ever had, it was uninsured most of the time, been over a year now i think.
had many trips into 0.0, taking a big risk, hoping to fix the holes in my wallet
the narrowest escape so far(probably wont ever be topped) when i underestimated an npc spawn.. got out with a whooping 6 hull, and that's not %... it was uninsured at the time...
now it's sitting in my hangar, i'm not sure ill ever take it out for some risky things again, it's got an armor repairer in the med slot.. it cant be fitted like that anymore.. i'm too fond of it's collection value, to risk loosing it :)

a stabber crusier, by the name of the rusty nail, i'm up to #6 now, cant remember how i lost them all, but a couple of things come to mind..
#1, underestimated npcs.. need i say more?
#3, in 0.0, for the first time, warping between belts.. i run into an interesting spawn.. 10 frigates, 6 crusiers, all less then 5km from me when i exit warp.. ehe.. *boom*
#4, one of the best things that happened to me in eve, i was in 0.0, testing some tactics, needless to say, that didnt work, left me sitting in a pod, in a belt.
in warps a guy on a thorax crusier, big negative sec, and a bounty.. i look at the local channel, and to my surprise, i see him say: "hi.. need some help there?"
to make a long story short, now, nearly 2 years later, we are still good friends :)

lesson learned: i guess a negative sec status, and a bounty, dosnt make someone evil.. :)

a cute little named smartbomb, i had, while my biggest ship was a vexor, i was mining, with harvester mining drones.. can you guees where this is going?
yep.. not once but twice, i waste 8 harvesters, in one go.. GRR.. that smartbomb ended up being used for target practice.
lesson: mining drones and smatbombs, do NOT mix...

well, that's all i can think of for now.. i'll add more if i think of some..

i look forward to hear stories of your adventures :D

I guy i know was siting in .5 space looking for a good belt and over TS he says "Hey look a Dread Gurtistas Arrogator, maybe I'll get somethign nice" I'm like "Oh wow, be carefull man he might pop you,"(in jest)"anyway why would they give somethign so crapy decent loot?" he says "I'm gona kill it anyway" 1 min later "Hey guess what i found?"

A damned Gurtistas Webifier, i don't know how many crappy dread frig's i've killed, and i haven't got one good piece of loot.

first day probes came out, tested them on finding a thorax, after about an hour, got it back to station, had a look what was on it, and to my surprise a true sansha cap relay. and a t2 cap recharger, so that was a 80 mill thorax.. w00t

I lost my Harpy to some strange thing I still haven't figured out (got shot by sentries in Yulai for shooting at a can I didn't lock) and some ATUK ****wad took my Gistii shield booster from my can before my teammate could salvage it.

I had an incursus that took out a claw and a raptor in 2 seperate 1v1's. I tried to see how much luck it had by taking on a Rupture though and it had about 2 seconds worth of luck is all.

I had a Crow '[RKK] Birdy' which had over 50 kills to it's name and always seemed to scarper from unfavourable engagements rather effectively.

Lost it to cruise missile interception changes iirc.
