Going down all the way to 28 tonight. But, that's kind of rare - this little cold...

Re: Where can you work on your car?

Still, it's easier to get Chinese than Pizza on Christmas. At that point, you beg for Chinese food and tell them you will eat it as fast as you can to get done, but that the vehicle can't be moved until you finish the food. Speaking of Chutzpah, I heard that the example of chutzpah is that when you...

Re: Where can you work on your car?

I was in a parking lot and someone was doing a fuel pump. He had the tank dropped and all that. Did not envy him whatsoever. I would fear that once you start the job, they'd tell you to get lost halfway through. Still, it's easier to get forgiveness than permission. At that point, you beg forgivene...

Re: Where can you work on your car?

A week ago Saturday I helped my friend keep his 14 year old Kia exhaust alive. We rehung the catalyst and wrapped over the rotting bellows section with some aluminum sheet held in place by hose clamps. He's getting his money's worth from the car. We did it all in the parking lot of his apartment bui...
